Obama Gets Elbowed in the Mouth, 12 Stiches in Upper Lip While Playing Basketball


Obama takes yet another smack in the mouth …

First Barack Obama took one on the chin during the 2010 midterm elections, now The One takes an elbow in the mouth and receives 12 stitches. I guess Obama should have stuck to the golf course instead, rather than trying to play basketball. However, the 12 stitches and crack in the mouth isn’t anything compared to the butt-kicking Obama suffered recently with the loss of 62 House seats, 6 US Senate seats, 6 Governor seats and 680+ state legislature races.

What a photo-op … could an aid have told Obama to get away from the window?

What an image for the leader of the free word

President Barack Obama needed 12 stitches in his upper lip after taking an errant elbow during a pickup basketball game Friday morning with family and friends visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday, the White House said.

First word of the injury came in a statement from press secretary Robert Gibbs nearly three hours after the incident.

The White House did not initially name the person who caused the injury, but identified him later Friday as Rey Decerega, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.

Obama received the stitches under local anesthesia in the doctor’s office on the ground floor of the White House after returning home. Doctors used a smaller filament than typically used, which increases the number of stitches but makes a tighter stitch and leaves a smaller scar.

The president had gone to nearby Fort McNair to indulge in a game of basketball, one of his favorite athletic pursuits. It was a five-on-five contest involving family and friends. Among the players were Obama’s nephew, Avery Robinson, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Reggie Love, Obama’s personal assistant, who played at Duke University.

So was this an inadvertent elbow or a message as questioned by Macsmind? As it turns out the culprit was Rey Decerega, he works for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. Maybe this was a message to pass comprehensive illegal immigration?

      and I’m curious as to how a doctor inputs 12 stitches in the side of one’s mouth. Seems they could have stitched up his entire orifice with 12 stitches.

      He didn’t need a busted lip. Now a pie in the face, that’s a different story. RIP, Soupy Sales.
