Bonehead remark from Obama
Barack tries to play tough.
""We're going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town," Obama said this morning. "I'm saying that when it comes to the weather, folks in Washington don't seem to be able to handle things." "
Please Barack, don't embarass yourself. I've lived in Chicago. I've lived in colder, snowier places, like northern Minnesota. And now I live in DC.
Hands down, there is no place more dangerous during a snowstorm than DC. The reasons are simple. There are no snow plows. There's no real ice control. And no one knows how to drive in the snow. Those are all good reasons to close schools. I'm sure the prez won't want these remarks reflecting back on him when someone gets killed in an avoidable traffic accident.
Today, the streets and sidewalks outside my home were like a skating rink, no exaggeration. There was a 3/4 inch thick sheet of ice covering everything, and the same lack of salt, grit, and plowing.
Staying home when the roads are dangerous is smart. If Barack wants DC to be "tough" like Chicago, let's see him come up with the budget for plows and drivers.
Yeah, didn't think so.
