Rome may be burning (so to speak), but at least Obama is enjoying himself in Vegas.
President Obama arrived in Las Vegas Sunday for three days of last-minute debate prep against his Republican rival Mitt Romney, choosing to stay at the luxurious Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort in Henderson for the job, ABC News reports.
A little over two years after he told Americans not to go to Vegas during tough economic times and to “tighten” their belts instead, the White House pool report notes the president has jetted off to the resort that’s “a strange mix of desert sand pits, green lawns, palm trees and new homes.”
“We passed a replica of the Ponte Vecchio and some luxurious lakeside estates, also unfinished lots and a browning golf course. The president’s hotel has a Middle Eastern theme and a view of the lake from the lobby,” the description continues, according to Business Insider.
