President Obama Discusses Economy, Mideast Violence in Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the Nevada economy was hit harder than most places in the country.
But he said during a quick campaign stop Wednesday in Las Vegas that Democratic policies would help the middle class more than Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's proposals to cut taxes for the wealthy.
When the crowd booed his mention of Romney, he said, "Don't boo. Vote."
President Obama's campaign speech before more than 8,000 people was his eighth appearance this year in Nevada. He departed shortly afterward for Denver.
The President has briefly addressed violence that has left four U.S. diplomats dead in the Middle East.
President Obama said that those who died, including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, had risked their lives "to help one of the world's youngest democracies get on its feet."
He said he had a message for the rest of the world: "No act of violence will shake the resolve of the United States of America." (AP)
