Green Bay, Wis. -- Ten-year-old Kennedy Corpus has a rock-solid excuse for missing the last day of school: a personal note to her teacher from President Obama.Her father, John Corpus of Green Bay, stood to ask Obama about healthcare during the president's town hall-style meeting at Southwest High School on Thursday. He told Obama that his daughter was missing school to attend the event and that he hoped she didn't get in trouble.
"Do you need me to write a note?" Obama asked. The crowd laughed, but the president was serious.On a piece of paper, he wrote: "To Kennedy's teacher: Please excuse Kennedy's absence. She's with me. Barack Obama."He stepped off the stage to hand-deliver the note -- to Kennedy's surprise.
"I thought he was joking until he started walking down," Kennedy said after the event, showing off the note in front of a bank of television cameras. "It was like the best thing ever."The fourth-grader at Aldo Leopold elementary in Green Bay already knew what she was going to do with the note: Frame it along with her ticket to the event. She said she'd make a copy for her teacher.Kennedy said she had never seen Obama before. "He's really nice," she said.
** OK. Maybe it's no big deal.... but here's the stuff...... About five years ago when Bush was running for re-erection he visited Oshkosh. Sorta. I mean, there was a 'set-piece' show.... and then the whole fucking motorcade 'sped' through town. Nobody really saw him, except for a few Republicans at the meeting. And some of Max's friends who happened to be working at Leon's
...Well somebody must have told Bush that they have really good custard, and they do, so the Presidential motorcade pulls into to Leon's for a couple of cones ..
(Hey! I am really not making this up!)
Well.... I guess he needed the spare change for the war or something..... rather than a tip for a poor High School Student. Cheap son-of-a-bitch!
But here's the real deal.....
Dear President Obama
Would you please write a note to my boss telling her that I need to leave work early today?
