Those are among the gems from Steve Wynn during the the first part of a lengthy interview that aired on Monday evening. (Part 2 will air Tuesday and the entire hour will be posted on the web later this week.) He also criticized the president for not doing more on jobs, tore apart the stimulus and said his workers are being crushed by the president's policies. Watch:
Restore Our Future, the SuperPAC aiding Mitt Romney, made a substantial buy today in Nevada -- North and South. The purchase -- six figures in Vegas and five figures in Reno -- was for the last week in October, showing that Team Romney still believes it has a chance to win this battleground despite adverse registration trends -- and the Romneyites can't afford to take Nevada out of play at this point. Priorities USA Action, the Obama-linked SuperPAC, also has its first English-language buy here...
Speaker John Oceguera has a new, amazingly brutal ad out about Rep. Joe Heck, indicating again that he believes pushing women away from the incumbent is his key to victory. This one could leave a mark.
New ads: Greg Brower loves education, John Oceguera loves gaming the system and Shelley Berkley loves to tax energy
GOP state Sen. Greg Brower sounds like a Democrat in his first, warm-and-fuzzy, I-won't-cut-education ad, and the National Republican Congressional Committee continues the assault on Speaker John Oceguera in CD3. And a new Dean Heller ad, too, on energy taxes:
Rep. Shelley Berkley went up this weekend with a new ad on education, using those comments Sen. Dean Heller was reported to have made long ago to the Pahrump Valley Times about abolishing the Department of Education. Heller's folks have cliamed he was incorrectly paraphrased, but the damage was done. My thought: This "debate" only exists because Democrats know the issue polls well as opposed to having any good arguments why the department should exist, while Republicans, most of whom think most...

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee began a new statewide ad this weekend describing Sen. Dean Heller as "Bad for Women, Bad for Nevada." The spot uses various votes on mammograms, other screenings and equal pay to make that case. It's a clear effort to solidify women against him and for Rep. Shelley Berkley.
Sen. Dean Heller is leading by 2 percentage points over Rep. Shelley Berkley, Rep. Joe Heck is beating Speaker John Oceguera by 11 and Danny Tarkanian is defeating Steven Horsford by 8. Those are the findings of an independent poll conducted at the end of last month by Precision Opinion, a Nevada firm with experience polling for national Democrats. The sample for the Senate race is very large (1,521), so the margin of error is about 2.5 percent. The congressional samples are smaller, so the...
The Culinary union has scheduled a show of force in downtown Las Vegas on Oct. 13 to protest what it says are Glitter Gulch casinos not meeting their demands on a benefits package. The demonstration coincides -- although the union says it is a coincidence -- with the Rediscover Downtown celebration. I am sure businesses and The First Family are thrilled. The labor organization is asking Strip employees to sign up for the "Strip Properties Adopt Downtown Hotels" protest, scheduled from 11 AM to...
Steve Wynn: Obama "doesn't have a clue," Berkley is a "thoughtless pawn" and Reid likes his three fireplaces
That headline whet your appetite? Well, that's all you are getting for now, folks. And that's just the beginning of an hour-long interview I had this week with Steve Wynn, who ratcheted up his anti-President Obama rehtoric (think Dinesh D'Souza), went after Rep. Shelley Berkley with a renewed vehemence and essentially said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid squandered an opportunity to make deals with the House because of his fealty to the president and desire to remain majority leader. There's...
