    I must be lame too, because I thought it was pretty cool myself.

    I thought Obama signing an accord with the Prime Minister of Munchkins to be an impolite gesture. It's like he wants the kids to slip through life, and replace us.

    Even though I don't like Obama, I'd consider meeting a Prez in person to be an adequate excuse for missing one day of school. Especially the last day, heck they don't do much the last couple days anyway.

    So the note says that she played hooky to see President Obama? Do you really think the school is going to believe that note is genuine? LOL.


    Article is here.
    Yup, it was duly recorded on TV. It was also the last day of school and in grammar scholl that's a day in which not a lot is done. Therefoe I would say that he kid probabl leaned more about civics and the interaction with government than she would have learned in class.

    Can we get over this bull**** already? For crying out loud, it's just an excuse note.

    Which Obama signed.

    Thus, it is an issue.

    Anything the president does is an issue.

    At some point, I expect some president in the future to be criticized on the number of times he/she uses the toilet each day. Or something equally inane.

    That if how criminals get started. First it's an excuse note, and then it's the pen that was used to write the note,

    Excuse me? What past presidents have done doesn't matter? Are you serious?

    She is referring to partisan hacks who dwell on everything Bush etc. He is no longer in office and has no power which makes him irrelevant to our world for all practical purposes.

    He is much like Bill Clinton or Regan etc, an historical footnote.
