President Barack Obama Pardons Fifth-Grader Who Skipped School
"Turns out President Obama signed a pardon recently -- for a 11-year-old Minnesota boy who cut class to see him in the flesh.
`I was sitting in the front row,` said Tyler, whose father introduced Obama`s speech. `It was pretty exciting.`
The note reads: `Mr. Ackerman, Please excuse Tyler. He was with me. Barack Obama.`"
When Obama shook the young boy`s hand, he told him, "You must be missing school." The president then asked the kid his teacher`s name and he wrote the note that the young man will treasure for the rest of his life.
Conservatives reacted with faux outrage, you`d think Obama has signed a pardon for the zombie cannibal killer. The young scholar isn`t going to turn into a delinquent because he missed one day of school.
The kid`s father did the right thing, letting his son miss a day of school so he could meet the President of the United States.
Hell, I would call in sick to work for a chance at meeting Angelina Jolie, or even a fourth-rate reality star like JWoww.
