(Newser) – Kids cut school every day, but usually for reasons like "Meh, I didn't feel like going," not "I was hanging with the leader of the free world." Such is the life of 5th-grader Tyler Sullivan, who got a written excuse from none other than President Obama after he skipped out to attend a presidential appearance Friday. "Please excuse Tyler ... He was with me," reads the note. Tyler's dad introduced Obama at the Minnesota event, notes HyperVocal.
