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.
