Presdential Presidential Metaphor of the Day Decade [Rajiv Vindaloo]
— Open Blogger

(Yes I can spell. I just can't see the damn screen.)

UPDATE: According to Li'l Bobby Gibbs it was an elbow to the face that did it. That would probably do more damage than a basketball.

Place your bets now as to how long it will take for some leftwing blogs to accuse the poor bastard that did this (who's probably one of Obama's best friends) of being a Republican plant and try to destroy the guy's life.

Original post below:

President Obama + Baseball Basketball = 12 stitches to lip.

That's all we know thus far.

(Thanks Mr. Dave (and 845 other people after him; geez, you guys are sticklers for facts and stuff) or actually reading the one-line article and correcting me. I'm in a greenhouse shopping for fake Christmas trees and woozy from the Benadryl.)

I still want him to accept Scott Brown's daughter's throwdown. She basically, said, 'yeah, you, Obama. Me and my Dad -vs- you and whomever you pick'.

If he weren't such a thin-skinned prick he would have taken her up on her challenge.

23 12 Stitches on your face?!? Well the good news is, we won't be seeing Obama on TV for a few weeks.  12 stitches is alot, I don't know how many of you have ever had to have your skin sewn shut before. Depending on the area, I'd guess 4-6 stitches per inch.

actually, not to defend him, but this probably has nothing to do w/him being a lousy basketball player. if he went for a rebound at the same time as another player, he probably got elbowed in the mouth.

President Barack Obama received 12 stitches in his lip after being hit during a pick up basketball game, the White House said on Friday.

"After being inadvertently hit with an opposing player's elbow in the lip while playing basketball with friends and family, the president received 12 stitches today administered by the White House Medical Unit," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said, according to NBC News.

Gibbs did not release the names of the people playing with the president.

Obama had traveled to Fort McNair with a group of family and friends for an early morning game of basketball.

The president is a sports fan, roots for his hometown Chicago teams and has often gone golfing in addition to playing basketball.

44 President Obama + Baseball Basketball = 12 stitches to lip.

Someone needs to teach Barky not to try to eat the basketball ... even if he's really hungry.  Just because he watches Worf wolf down 5 basketballs at a time doesn't mean that he can do it, too.

No reason to feel bad. Accidents happen. I'm just really curious. That is alot of stitches for an elbow to the face though.

Anyone want to bet that this message is garbled? 1-2 stitches became 12.

B) He had a tumor in his mouth removed from smoking cigs all those years.Or

C) He puffed weed with Kal in the Situation Room and fell and hit his mouth.

Posted by: Don at November 26, 2010 10:00 AM (RiU19)

61 The pool report noted that "the medical unit that treated Obama used a smaller filament than typically used, which increases the number of stitches but makes a tighter stitch and results in a smaller scar. Obama was given a local anesthetic while receiving the stitches."

74 Obama emerged from the building after about 90 minutes of play, wearing short-sleeve T-shirt and gym pants, and was seen dabbing at his mouth with what appeared to be a wad of gauze. A few hours later, reporters who had gathered on the White House driveway for the arrival of the Christmas Tree saw the president in an upstairs window, pressing something white against his mouth.

I have no doubt that this is what they say it is.

It is interesting if you think about it though. Tiger Woods just one year ago to the day was in a similar incident. And that was reported as 'just a car accident'. And then the details emerged.

121 Mr. Love, is Mr. Obama’s body man, the personal aide who shadows the senator and anticipates everything he needs — and everything he does not need. He is not a bodyguard (security is provided by the Secret Service), but rather the ultimate assistant, rarely more than a body length away from the candidate.

Young, eager campaign aides are stock characters in movies and on television, but few have quite the élan of Mr. Love, who, at 6-foot-5, is about three inches taller than the tall candidate, fitter than the fit candidate (he can bench press more than 350 pounds) and cooler than the cool candidate.

“There’s no doubt that Reggie is cooler than I am,” Mr. Obama said, laughing, in a phone interview. “I am living vicariously through Reggie.”

Mr. Love, who played football and basketball at Duke, usually starts the day with Mr. Obama with a dawn workout in the hotel gym. They end the day more than 15 hours later, often unwinding before bed by watching ESPN’s “SportsCenter” or that night’s big game. (Mr. Obama sometimes flosses his teeth to ESPN while lying down.)

It is interesting if you think about it though.

Like about the accusations of the IRS being used to harass an organization whose policies aren't in line with those of the Obama Administration? And how Obama doesn't like being shown up by anyone? And how the star of White Men Can't Jump was recently handed a prison sentence for not paying his taxes?

144 It's more than a metaphor.  Two years ago, nobody playing basketball with him would have even thought of getting an elbow near the presidential face.

Also, do you notice how he spends so little time with his family?  Thanksgiving and he's playing basketball?  Being with the troops would be nice, but wouldn't you at least spend the day with your kids?

170 The White House has identified the person whose elbow injured President Barack Obama during a pickup game of basketball on Friday. His name is Rey Decerega and he works for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.

The White House also released a statement from Decerega, who says he enjoys playing basketball with Obama and is sure the president will be back out on the court again soon.




....Decerega also said something about Obama being a mariposa, which he said is a Spanish term for a great athlete.
