Sorry but whether true or not, this is a stupid thing to say. DC and other places may be over cautious but Obama gives the impression that there should never be snow day cancellations which is simply dumb.

Chicago and other urban areas don't have the hills and dangerous curves such as NH or VT or Maine or...etc. It's easy to poo poo all the non-urban school districts that have more dangerous terrain and longer bus routes as opposed to urban areas, like Chicago, where a lot of 90 degree turns on relatively flat terrain are a safer bet.

I can't wait to see the reaction of the locals bacause Obama gave a broad-faced slap to his Peeps.

I guess people move south just to beat their chests over snow days? Kinda stupid. Just embrace the local custom and enjoy an unexpected day off.

Besides, nobody, and I do mean nobody, can drive on black ice. You’d have to have cleated chains or studded tires to even keep the vehicle remotely under control. You can’t even remain stopped on an incline on black ice, the vehicle will slide downhill.

Oh those denizens of Illinois are so tough but they obviously can't take being laughed at!

Gee — isn’t anyone going to comment on the satirical aspect?

Didn’t anyone chuckle at the notion of how “political correctness” could be stretched to apply to almost anything?
