Laura was heard to mutter, “Better a missed graduation than a missed period…”
Jenna goes AWOL:
President Bush wasn’t the only one who skipped the pomp and circumstance of his daughter’s graduation from the University of Texas on Saturday. Jenna Bush did not participate either.
Despite her name being listed on the commencement program, Bush was not among the more than 150 English majors receiving degrees Saturday afternoon at the Austin campus. Attendance at the event is not required to graduate from the university.
A White House spokeswoman said she did not know why Jenna Bush did not attend the commencement but added that the administation declines to comment on matters related to the president’s daughters.
Jenna claims that she instead attended graduation ceremonies at the University of Alabama…but no one remembers seeing her there.
