Flinty Chicago Tough Guy Scratching His Face with His Middle Finger Again

"My children's school was canceled today," Obama said, speaking to reporters before a meeting with business leaders. "Because of what? Some ice? . . . We're going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town." . . .

Obama he kept at it. "I'm saying that when it comes to the weather, folks in Washington don't seem to be able to handle things."

WASHINGTON — The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Do you really think that President Obama, et al. could give a rat's ass what you think about him contemptuously calling you a wimp about the cold weather and demanding that you sacrifice, while he cranks up the heat?
