Student Gets "excused absence" Note from President
WXOW News ^ | June 11, 2009 | WXOW Staff

GREEN BAY, WI (WXOW) - 10-year-old Kennedy Corpus had a really good excuse for missing the last day of school-a note from the President of the United States.

Kennedy's father took her to the President's town hall in Green Bay Thursday. When John Corpus was called on to ask a question, he mentioned that his daughter was missing her last day of fourth grade to see the speech today.

"I hope she doesn't get in trouble," Mr. Corpus told the president. "Do you need me to write a note?" the President asked and then proceeded to ask the girls name, take out a pen from his pocket, rip the corner of a sheet of paper at the podium, and then begin writing. The audience applauded and Mr. Obama went on to answer the father's question.

Later, the proud fourth grader showed off her valuable excuse note, which read, "To Kennedy's teacher - Please excuse Kennedy's absence. She's with me. (signed) Barack Obama."

The parent’s discretion isn’t good enough, but a note from Obama is?

It will be worth a lot in a few years when Obambi is known as the usurper who tried to destroy America.

That's too funny. Europeans put a line through an 'O' to designate a 'zero'.

Nice PR move for Obama.

It’s cute, funny and it aims to show that he is connected with the people.

Such a move would have worked for any president, except for perhaps Nixon. Okay, there is no way Nixon would have done such a thing.

What a setup......
What was Dad's question anyway ? And who gets in trouble for missing the last day of school, which is usually only an hour or two. At least it was when I was in school.

10-year-old Kennedy Corpus had a really good excuse for missing the last day of school-a note from the President of the United States.

It said, "I'm ending the D.C. voucher program. Get this kid down to PS 2568 down the street."

A nice move, a warm move. It also shows that Obama CAN react quickly on his feet, without TOTUS telling him what to do.

Bravo, Barack, great showmanship!

That scrap of paper will be valued, I’m sure.

I wonder, if Kennedy had asked a serious tough question; would he have gotten the note?

Are you kidding? Where is that? All the schools in my area are still open and my brother's kids' school in south jersey doesn't let out until the END of next week.

Wow, I guess it does have to do with snow days, but I think we only had 2 or 3 up here in Pa. Doesn’t seem like enough to account for such a big difference. I guess state school boards determine holidays and inservice days? Maybe the schools up here have more days off during the year. Seems weird.

The audience applauded and Mr. Obama went on to answer the father's question.

I don't suppose the question was about the birth certificate?

Unless demonstrated otherwise, all Lord Zero’s “town hall meetings” are fully and completely orchestrated. Don’t be surprised when he starts healing the sick and blind through the laying on of his hands.

Stupid liberal.

It's my kid and I'll take her out of school whenever I damn well please, cuz I'm the parent, and its MY decision.

If my kids stay home because I want to take them to a political rally, or to take a family field trip, or I'm too hung over to drive them to school, that's MY choice.

Get in trouble. Bump that.

I agree. That kid and her Dad were a plant. Our side controls these types of events, too. Too bad Biden wasn't there. It would've been another 'foot in mouth' fest, LOL!
