Poker Pro Doyle Brunson Blasts Obama Over Vegas Remarks

In his weekly blog posting, legendary poker pro Doyle Brunson did not hold back expressing how he really felt about President Barack Obama.

Brunson's main gripe is the negative effect Obama's remarks have had on the city of Las Vegas, something the US President is yet to apologize for and, as such, he is not likely to win many votes in the state of Nevada come election time. 

"I hope Nevada watched the Mike Huckabee TV show with his guest being the Las Vegas mayor, Oscar Goodman. I remember everyone was on my case for voting for McCain when Obama was supposedly pro-poker," Brunson says.  "I knew the election was over when I voted and I was just being a loyal Republican. If I thought my vote would have mattered, I probably would have voted for Obama.

"But forget about pro-poker, bailouts, immigration, apologizing to other countries for America, budget deficit and all the other problems of this administration. Oscar had the statistics of what happened after Obama's 2 remarks about "not going to Vegas." According to Goodman, a gigantic dip in canceled conventions after our President's first comment and a sharp decline in visitors immediately after his 2nd "stay away from Vegas." Our mayor said Obama was directly responsible for Vegas being the hardest hit city from the recession. I don't see how any resident in Nevada could ever vote for Obama after this.

Vegas may never recover.

"Besides that, how do you like this quote from Obama's book, "Audacity of Hope"? "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in a ugly direction." If that doesn't scare Americans, what will?"
