From Hot Air:

Barack Obama today told Washingtonians they needed to toughen up and send their kids to school when the roads ice over:

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 Chicago, not only is school never canceled for snow, “you’d go outside for recess. You wouldn’t even stay indoors.”

He concluded by saying: “We’re going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town. I’m saying that when it comes to the weather, folks in Washington don’t seem to be able to handle things.”

Oh, and he signed his first bill today requiring equal pay for women. But we know Michelle Obama had her hand in that because she's the one who really wears the pants in the family.
