WASHINGTON — Republican challenger Sharron Angle rolled out a harsh welcome for President Obama, who dropped into Las Vegas last night in a desperate bid to save Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
The ad features Obama two years ago lamenting the crumbling economy.
“In 2008, we were promised change we could believe in,” the ad says starkly as a crowd can be heard chanting “Obama! Obama!” in the background.
“Then Harry Reid and the president got to work,” the ad says, as scenes flash on screen showing Reid and Obama yukking it up, campaigning together, waving to audiences, smiling and embracing.
Since then, things have only gotten worse — especially in Nevada, which now suffers the highest bankruptcy and foreclosure rates in the country and 14.4 percent unemployment.
In Las Vegas, unemployment is 15 percent.
