Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said school closures due to freezing temperatures caused by a deadly polar vortex were a sign that were getting soft. Fayette County and Jefferson County public schools in Lexington, Ky., closed all schools on Wednesday and cancelled all activities because of the dangerously cold temperatures and wind chill. Other school districts and many colleges also closed on Wednesday, when temperatures were expected to hover between a high of 11 degrees and a low of 4 degrees. In a radio interview with 840 WHAS on Tuesday, Bevin objected to that decision. Come on, now. I mean, theres no ice going with it or any snow. I mean, what happens to America? Were getting soft, Terry. Were getting soft, Bevin said in the interview with radio host Terry Meiners. Its better to

err on the side of being safe, and Im being only slightly facetious, Bevin said. But it does concern me a little bit that in America, on this and any number of other fronts, were sending messages to our young people that if life is hard, you can curl up in the fetal position somewhere in a warm place and just wait until it stops being hard, and that just isnt reality. It just isnt. Related Stories

Kids have to汶上最新房源 sit on bus stops and or walk a mile or more in that, Doug Stafford, Republican chief strategist for Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul tweeted. No one wants to hear your old man stories about walking uphill both ways in that when you were a kid.  Bevin, who is up for reelection this year, was also quickly criticized by his gubernatorial opponents. I wish there were better words to describe the things our governor says than dumb and mean. But there arent, Democratic candidate Adam Edelen tweeted. Protecting our children from freezing temperatures with subzero windchills is not something to be cavalier about, and it is not funny, said Republican candidate Robert Goforth in a Facebook post.
