Snow forces Eagles-Vikings game to Tuesday Night
Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell:
“We’ve become a nation of wusses,” Rendell told Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic on Monday. “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.”
“My biggest beef is that this is part of what’s happened in this country,” Rendell said. “I think we’ve become wussies. . . .
“What do you think Lombardi would say? He would say that we’ve become a nation of wusses.”
AND Obama’s Praise!!!
The White House says President Barack Obama has commended the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles for giving quarterback Michael Vick(notes) a second chance after his release from prison.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton says the president told owner Jeffrey Lurie that while he condemns the crimes Vick was convicted of, he believes people who have paid for their crimes should have the opportunity to contribute to society again.
The Eagles signed Vick last year after he served an 18-month prison sentence on charges related to a dogfighting ring. Vick has led the Eagles to the playoffs this year after assuming the starting job.
The White House says Obama also applauded the Eagles’ plan to install wind turbines and solar panels at their stadium to reduce energy consumption.
