"Can I make a comment that is unrelated to the economy very quickly?" the new president told reporters at a gathering with business leaders. "And it has to do with Washington. My children's school was canceled today. Because of, what? Some ice?"

What a pr_ck. He knows better about everything than everyone else. Jeez. I hate guys like this.
Not everybody can have a detail of Secret Service Agents safely escort their children to school in dangerous weather conditions.
But who would expect the Obamessiah to know this?
Same thing happened here last week. The parents of the other kids in my daughters’ gymnastics class were outraged. What’s the use of free daycare - not to mention the service the Obamas are paying for! - if it’s not open when you don’t feel like having your kids around?
“I won. Open that school.”
Kindly be sensitive when addressing people who are not accustomed to snow and ice.
Anyone who can afford Sidwell Friends can pay *somebody* to take their kids to school, in a snowplow if necessary.
WaPo will robotically agree and call the entire Metro area a bunch of wimps.
D.C. has like three snow plows.
Mocking. So attractive in a leader. Guaranteed to go over at their school, too, I bet.
The DC schools were on 2-hour delayed opening
But hey, if the Secret Service armored limo caravan can get through the ice to Sidwell Friends- all those public school parents and teachers should just suck it up and report on time
Has it occurred to him the Chicago is flat as a pancake with square blocks, and Washington is hilly with lots of curvy roads?
Hey Welcome to Washington Obama
Where wimps unite and don’t seem to be able to handle anything!!!! You’ll fit right in.
Doesn’t anyone see what an arrogant SOB this Obama is?
“People who are not used to snow and ice.” I imagine they don’t have the snow plows, etc., in place to deal with unusual weather, either. That’s what usually happens.
Gee, what a jerk!
Perhaps he’s not aware that the mayor of DC, Adrian Fenty, is a black Democrat, just like him. Over the years Mayor Fenty’s grown in my respect. While I don’t live in the city, I do work here, and the services I’ve seen have improved under the Fenty administration.
the media in the room laughed like it was a don rickles show. my god, they really are totally in the bag.
it was like that kiss-ass in the office who laughs at every lame joke the boss makes.
Making friends wherever he goes.
Mr. President, we’re got some tough times on our hands. Beating up the DC School system isn’t going to make things better.
This man is a snob.
