Obama Pokes Fun at Washington’s Snow and Ice

January 28, 2009

You can take the Obama out of Chicago, but you cannot take the Obama out of Obama. Obama is a combination of Arrogance, Hubris and Ignorance.

After his daughters got a snow day Wednesday, President Barack Obama said that he wants Washington to show some “flinty, Chicago toughness.” Double WOW! One week in town and he’s already preaching to the people who voted overwhelmingly for him – his now hometown. This screed comes from someone who doesn’t have to drive anywhere in the ice and snow – much less drive to work. Where’s the compassion man, for those who do have to drive on streets that suddenly become sheets of ice between the melting and thawing temperatures? WTOP.com

Obama seems not changed at all from his younger days he wrote about in his books, when he was living in New York City and critiquing the natives there. They were so bourgeois that “We’d Laugh at the Faces.” He and his buddies entertained themselves laughing at the upper-class “white people from the better neighborhoods” because they were actually following the rules of the community in which they lived. Obama wrote it in his own words in “Dreams From My FatherBarack Obama Book,” pages 3, 4.

“I’d usually stop to talk to the boys who hung out on the stoop all summer long about the Knicks or the gunshots they’d heard the night before. When the weather was good, my roommate and I might sit out on the fire escape to smoke cigarettes and study the dusk washing blue over the city, or watch white people from the better neighborhoods nearby walk their dogs down our block to let the animals shit on our curbs — ‘Scoop the poop, you bastards!’my roommate would shout with impressive rage and we’d laugh at the faces of both master and beast, grim and unapologetic as they hunkered down to do the deed. I enjoyed such moments –” ~~Barack Obama in “Dreams From My Father,” pages 3, 4.)

Obama has probably already started writing his latest book: “Dreams from My Father for Washington – No Mo’ Snow Days.”
