This is just the most offensive thing I have read. The man has only been in office ONE WEEK and already he is pissing me off big time serious. And I'm sure the families of the 20 people who have DIED as a result of these storms would agree with ME, not this callow infant who is occupying The White House!
The laws and the jurisdictions (numerous) in the D.C. Metro area are totally different from those to be found in the corrupt (yet functional - and isn't that maddening) Chicago to which he so airily refers. But then, he hasn't been in The District much over the past few years - engrossed as he has been in his quest for power and/or deification! And don't think God (the real one) won't arrange some karma for THAT little bit of blasphemy!

The suburban schools systems and many private schools in the region were closed today and the District public schools opted for a delayed opening because of the sleet and freezing rain that made some roads and many sidewalks treacherous.
"Because of what? Because of some ice?" Obama said to laughter around the table. He said Sasha, his 7-year-old, pointed out that in
, not only is school never canceled for snow, "you'd go outside for recess. You wouldn't even stay indoors." Chicago
He concluded by saying: "We're going to have to apply some flinty
toughness to this town. I'm saying that when it comes to the weather, folks in Chicago don't seem to be able to handle things." Washington
