- “…we need more visitors and more visitors spending more money.”

Keith Olbermann was entertaining to me when he was on ESPN Sportscenter. I didn’t watch Countdown on MSNBC because I tend to stay away from politics on TV. I don’t care about his politics, but he was fun with sports. I watch brainless TV and sports and I’m happy with that.
Anyway, Olbermann got the boot from MSNBC and is now on Current TV and he’s still doing the “Worst Person In The World” sketch. Last night Steve Wynn won the “Worst Person In The World” for comments he made about Barack Obama earlier this week. Evidently this made him a worse person than Sarah Palin and Congressman Alan West.
Take a look.
When I started writing this post I asked who was more obnoxious Steve Wynn or Keith Olbermann and Olbermann won in a landslide. The comment that I echo is from Denver Gambler ” Olberman for sure, he doesn’t have a snazzy casino”.
Now this brings up a new question: Would you rather be the “Worst” or “Most Obnoxious”?
Steve Wynn seems to care only about one thing – his business. There’s nothing wrong with that and there’s nothing wrong with the recent quarterly financial results at Wynn. Every quarter Steve Wynn takes a few minutes of his conference call to discuss what politics are helping or hurting his business. For the past few quarters he’s railed on President Barack Obama. This quarter was no different.
The man who played a major role in revitalizing Las Vegas is bashing President Barack Obama as “the greatest wet blanket to business, progress and job creation in my lifetime.”
Speaking to investors on a Monday conference call, casino developer Steve Wynn – calling himself a “Democratic businessman” – went on an extended rant against Obama and his policies.
His customers and the companies he works with “are frightened of this administration,” he said, “and it makes you slow down and not invest your money. Everybody complains about how much money is on the side in America.”
“Until we change the tempo and the conversation from Washington, it’s not going to change,” added Wynn, according to a transcript of the call’s question-and-answer session.
Steve Wynn owns the company and is allowed to use his quarterly earnings reports as a soapbox, so I don’t see anything wrong here as much as I feel his constant complaints to be boring, repetitive and obnoxious. Extreme talk like this (good or bad) just makes me tune out Steve Wynn. Frankly, the only reason I’m passing this info on is because I know others find it interesting.
If you’re interested to hear the Wynn conference call you can get it here.
Sensational headline? Maybe. Judging what Steve Wynn says in this video it seems as he doesn’t like nor agree with the Barack Obama and his staff’s current political policy. This isn’t the first time Wynn has gone off on a politician, but it is a new interview which, seemingly, was meant to discuss the excellent first quarter earnings Wynn had. Thanks to @brian_fey for the heads up.
