Las Vegas (CNN) – For the second day in a row, President Barack Obama took an afternoon break from preparing for Wednesday night’s debate with a field trip. Tuesday's trip was a visit to the Hoover Dam.

The president’s motorcade drove 30 minutes to Boulder City, Nevada, where he stopped at the site of a heliport overlooking the Hoover Dam and the Colorado River Bridge

    Working people and government money built Hoover Dam. It wasn't built by the "job creators" and it wasn't built with money from the Cayman Islands. It was built by the sweat and blood of Americans. Mitt Romney does not represent those people.
