Remember when Barack Obama criticized corporate executives for traveling to Vegas “on the taxpayers dime”?
The president’s comments come nearly a year after he criticized companies that received federal money for taking corporate junkets to Las Vegas. “You can’t go take that trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on taxpayers’ dime,” he said at the time.
Obama will arrive in Las Vegas on Thursday evening and attend two fundraisers for Reid, who is locked in a tight political race with Republican Sharron Angle, a candidate backed by the Tea Party movement.
Time to double down on hypocrisy.
