Barack Obama surprised everyone when he wrote a note to excuse a girl from school today. John Corpus brought his daughter with him to attend a town hall meeting to hear Obama speak in person. When Corpus stood up to ask Obama a question about health care reform, he mentioned that his daughter skipped school to attending the meeting. The President replied, “Do you need me to write a note?” To everyone’s surprise, the President was serious. He asked Corpus for his daughter’s name, wrote the note, and then handed it to her.
We have the entire exchange on camera. Take a look.
