White House: This much snow gets Obama's respect
The Washington Times ^ | February 5, 2010 | Ben Feller (Associated Press)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Presidential quips about Washington's supposed lack of winter toughness have disappeared as snow accumulations mounted.

Barack Obama had been in office for about a week in 2009 when he expressed disbelief that many schools had canceled classes one day because of ice. "As my children pointed out, in Chicago, school is never canceled," he said then. "We're going to have to try to apply some flinty Chicago toughness."

Well, here comes more than a little ice: an estimated 20 to 30 inches of snow in Washington.

Lord knows he doesn’t get any from ME! ;-P

Why do they (MSM) refer to him as a “Chicago native”?

from article's discusson of Obambi's "bi-partisan" invites to his SuperBowl party:

"The lone Republican to land the invite: Rep. Joseph Cao, the only member of the GOP who supported a procedural vote that allowed the House to move forward on Obama's health care overhaul that has since stalled."

yeah, and that's exactly what the Obamanation and the Media mean by "bi-partisanship" --- RINOs who roll over completely for the Demagogues

If I recall correctly, this was also the storm or cold snap last year in DC when the heat in the White House was cranked up well past 70 degrees. And Robert Gibbs said that Obama is from Hawaii and likes it warm.

The irony of the liberal global warming fanatics turning up their thermostats when lecturing the rest of us to turn ours down is astounding.

"On Sunday, Obama plans to host a Super Bowl party, as he did last year. His guests will include lawmakers of both parties, military service members and members of his Cabinet."

Is Barry going to tell the common folk to stay home and off the streets while he sends his fleet of Vans out to pick up lawmakers so they can PARTY!?

I wouldn't bet against it.

White House: This much snow gets Obama's respect

Respect?!? One would think he hates it all the more because snow is WHITE...

There are probably more “man made global warming” libs per square inch in the north east part of the country than anywhere else. I'm loving this snow storm.

People who subscribe to the “there is no such thing as race” crap should poll a few people on temperature preferences. I used to work in a place with about fifty fifty black and white. The blacks would turn the thermostat up so high winter and summer that the whites couldn’t stand it. Then the whites would turn it down until the blacks couldn’t stand it. It was a constant war. I would often go in during the warmer winter days wearing short sleeves and the blacks would come in wearing heavy coats.

Most of them seem to like the thermostat on around eighty degrees in the winter, it would make me feel sick. Luckily we spent most of our time in an open warehouse where there was not enough heat available to run the temperature up too high.

I've had the same experience.

Many blacks see to be very cold natured; I used to work in an office with a black woman who wore a parka at her desk...in July...IN GEORGIA. We would all be in short sleeves, but she was always freezing.

Even now - on 50-60 degree days I see young black people running around in heavy coats, and "hoodies", when everyone else is in shirt sleeves...(again, in Georgia).

It's really strange.

We used to have to vote on whether the fans could be on in July in Georgia. The black women had on heavy coats and us whites (male and female) were in short sleeves. The vote always ran down racial lines and we luckily had one more vote. Still work with a few of them and they are always freezing. God has a sense of humor though...the women are all starting to have hot flashes!
