Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman Snubs Obama

When President Obama visits Sin City Thursday and Friday, Mayor Oscar Goodman says he will not bother to greet him.

Said Goodman, "I've got other things to do quite frankly…my constituents who rely on me to do the right thing as mayor."

Mayor Goodman says he's still steamed at the President after President Obama made comments earlier this year and last February about how people shouldn't spend money in Las Vegas.

The mayor and others viewed them as derogatory, and say they cost the city millions in tourism dollars, though White House has since apologized.
