Lots of kids have come down with the dreaded obamaphobia today. They caught it from their parents. Where are the truant officers? The schools probably can not afford them.
Isn’t it Virginia state law that kids go to school? Compulsary attendance laws specifically list what constitutes an excused absense and what the attendance laws are. I don’t think Obamaphobia is on the list of excused absenses–at least I didn’t see it.
What I find amusing is that most of the people who are keeping little Johnny and Jane home today are the very people who have been stridently going around screaming RULE OF LAW any time the subject of illegal immigration comes up or if they see someone they think might be illegally in the United States. Funny how rule of law suddenly becomes a convenience. Maybe this one time, on the first day of school, rule of law can be wink wink nudge nudged away…for a greater cause.
Video of the President’s speech will be posted as soon as it is available.
