Following Libya killings, Obama tones down political rhetoric

Las Vegas (CNN) - Sticking to his campaign schedule Wednesday despite the recent killings of four State Department employees in Libya Tuesday night, President Barack Obama vowed to a raucous Las Vegas crowd that he intends to seek justice.

"As for the ones we lost last night, I want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice," he said to loud cheers from a crowd of supporters that numbered more than 8,000 in a packed convention room just north of the Las Vegas strip.

Crossroads GPS bets against Obama in Nevada ad

(CNN) – Ahead of President Barack Obama's campaign trip to Las Vegas Wednesday, the private arm of the Karl Rove-backed super PAC American Crossroads released a new ad in Nevada targeting the president over the economy.

"After gambling your money on his failed stimulus, President Obama says, 'Don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas'," the ad's narrator says. "He doesn't get it. In Nevada, tourism means jobs. Under Obama, nearly 62,000 fewer Nevada jobs."

Romney hits July jobs report as a 'moral failure'

North Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) – Mitt Romney said Friday in Nevada that a monthly jobs report showing the unemployment rate rising from 8.2% to 8.3% proved President Barack Obama had failed to stem the suffering of 23 million Americans still out of work.

The same report showed 163,000 jobs were created in July, a statistic the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said represented only one element of a larger, disappointing record.
