It is not about the weather, people

President Obama walked about DC without a coat.. or hat or mittens.

Barack Obama made one comment about schools closing because of a little bit of snow. According to the Washington Post, he said:

My children’s school was canceled today… Because of what? Some ice? . . . We’re going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town.

And he wasn’t really talking about the weather. What he meant to say was.

We’ve got an economic and cultural storm brewing and you all just better tougher up, quit your whining and work together to get this country back on track.

At least that is what I heard with my super-sharp canine ears. Schools may have been closed here in Ohio as well, but we still did our three walks that day. If dogs can do it…

I’m just saying.

People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles. – Emily Dickinson

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+
