Nevada's triple economic whammy

New York (CNNMoney) - The Great Recession has dealt Nevada a losing hand.

The Silver State, which will hold the Republican caucus on Saturday, has the dubious distinction of leading the nation in unemployment, foreclosure filings and share of homes worth less than the mortgages on them.

    Let me see, gamblers (in probably everything); middle of the desert; high cost housing; drunks, losers, etc., looking for a "quick fix" to their problems.

    Yep - that could do it.

    Newt got his mortgage payment from Freddie and Fannie and now he shows up in Nevada pandering for votes, I don't think so.

    And as Karl Rove steers the sheeple down the slaughter chute, few, if any, of the clueless GOPB deathcult followers will notice that Rmoney doesn't have a viable plan for unemployment, foreclosures or underwater mortgages when they vote for another elitist who cares nothing about them or their problems.

    As long as the people of Nevada keep voting the likes of Harry Reid back in office, things will not improve. I say it's your own fault that Nevada is in turmoil. I love Las Vegas and usually travels there annually, but I haven't been in a couple of years because I refuse to support a State that helps keep Dems in office.
