More outrage on Obama remarks

U.S. Rep Shelley Berkley pulled down her framed photo of the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign this morning and took it with her to the House floor. 

There she used it as a prop as she vented on President Barack Obama's latest offhand comment about how or whether people should spend their money in Las Vegas.

"Mr. President, words matter and you need to watch what you say," Berkley said in a short speech. "Your words are hurting the businesses and families that call Las Vegas home."
