It's not because the kindergartners were demanding the release of Dick Cheney's memos or anything. It's just that they were late. So they were told to hit the road.
And just like the Obama-Cheney feud, there are two sides to the story. Both will agree that the kids arrived late. The White House is saying that the appointment was scheduled for 9:30. Parents say they were told to arrive at 10:15.
Either way when the school buses arrived at 10:25, they were denied entry.
The parents were reportedly told that staffers were preparing for the president's event with the Pittsburgh Steelers and there wasn't enough time to accommodate the tour.
