Here is a case of another Government Official who cares more for PROFIT then the safety of Americans, now if it was a small storm, that would be one thing, but when you get the magnitude of the storm that went through, this is a case of to hell with health and public safety, and the comment sounds just like what democrats think of Americans, and people like this should be removed from office.

Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell spoke out against the NFL’s decision move the Minnesota Vikings – Philadelphia Eagles game to Tuesday night because  of the blizzard. As Cindy Boren reported:

After calling the postponement “a joke” and saying that “Vince Lombardi would be spinning in his grave,” on Sunday, his anger was unabated Monday, when he made frequent use of the “w” word.

“My biggest beef is that this is part of what’s happened in this country,” Rendell said in an interview on 97.5 radio in Philly. “I think we’ve become wussies. … We’ve become a nation of wusses. The Chinese are kicking our butt in everything. If this was in China do you think the Chinese would have called off the game? People would have been marching down to the stadium, they would have walked and they would have been doing calculus on the way down.”

He needs to focus on the big picture: Moving the game to Tuesday — the NFL’s first on that day since 1946 — means that there have been NFL games on four of the last five days. Who doesn’t like that?

Jonathan Capehart agrees with Rendell, mostly:

“A nation of wusses”?! Ouch! But he’s got a point. With our padded playgrounds and safety helmets, the next generation perhaps will never know the joys of and lessons learned from a skinned knee or an ill-advised trick on a bike, rollerblades or skateboard. What I take issue with is Rendell’s musings on the Chinese. Yes, the people would have been marching down to the stadium — by order of the state.
