Motorcade vehicles for President Barack Obama are seen leaving the Lake Las Vegas resort en route to a local campaign office, Monday, Oct. 1, 2012, in Henderson, Nev. Sometimes all President Barack Obama has to do is look out the window to get a first-hand look at the country’s economic woes. This week in this town, the presidential motorcade speeds past opulent homes lining manmade Lake Las Vegas as he heads to the sprawling luxury development where he’s preparing for the upcoming debates with Mitt Romney. But many houses here are empty, victims of Nevada’s foreclosure crisis, and others are worth far less than their purchase price. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
