Obama gets 12 stitches in lip for basketball injury

By Scott Wilson

A holiday hoops outing with friends and family on Friday turned a bit rough for President Obama, who ended the game with a visit to the White House Medical Unit for a dozen stitches in his lip.

Obama and his basketball crew, which included presidential aide (and former Duke University forward) Reggie Love and family in town for the Thanksgiving holiday, arrived early Friday at Fort McNair for a full-court game. On his return to the White House a few hours later, Obama headed for the doctor's office located on the ground floor of the White House, where he was sewn up.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said, "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."

The statement did not identify the player.

The medical staff that treated Obama used a finer filament than usual, allowing for more numerous and tighter stitches and, as a result, a smaller scar. Obama received a local anesthetic while he was being stitched up.

UPDATE, 5:35 p.m.

According to the Associated Press, the White House has identified the person whose elbow injured Obama as 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, AP reported.

The president maybe a skinny guy but he is a rough and has steel in his spine, his twelve stitches will be removed within two to three weeks just in time for Christmas, so what the fuss? He’s human, he need to relax and play hoops, sometime being elbowed, may hurt his vanity and ego more than the pain of recovery, but he will live through it and be a better sport about it.

Guys that play professional basketball or the guys that play on neighborhood rec’s understands the game and how to overcome mismatches on the courts. Good sportsmanship brings out the best in all of us. The foul was probably unintentionally and the president probably aggressive and pressing under the basket. It happens, every single day in around the world.

We all should be glad that the president do not play hockey, rugby or go hunting with his distant cousin Dick Chaney.

American and Canadian English grammar is generally atrocious even from many of your notable corespondents let alone the ordinary person. Stitches, sewn up, .....ever hear of the word sutures. How does one (that meana a person for the ignoramuses)get stitched up; is it possible to also get stitched down? Yikes and gadzooks!!!!!

These "Loser" RepubliCONs all seem to think, they could do better job than President Obama is doing, but, I ask you, when they had all the power in Washington, what did they do, besides line their own pockets and the pockets of their friends, at the expense of the working taxpayers of this still great nation??? ~ After so many years of RepubliCON abuse, American voters should be ASHAMED of themselves, for electing ANY of these "Low Life Loser" types, in the recent mid-term elections!!!


Remember folks, that there are only two things, that really burn a RepubliCON's behind: (1.) a flame about 2 1/2 feet high, and, (2.) the ironic fact, that we now have a BLACK man living in the WHITE house!!!


RepubliCONs just can't seem to deal with that reality, and, they will continue to cry and moan, until they have another one of their own stooges back in the Oval Office, so they can go right back to their old game, of STEALING from American taxpayers!!!


Continue playing whatever games you enjoy, Mr. President, and, my hat is off to you, for the GREAT job you are doing, in spite of the RepubliCONs, who have stood in the way, since your first day in office!!!

I like the "real" Obama - the guy I can relate to. I genuinely felt sorry that he got his lip cut but could relate! That is SOOOO huge. There has been so little for the American people to relate to with Obama that an elite pick up game is "cool" - a game many of us would have loved to be a part of.

I had this same experience when Obama first got in office. I didn't get all the starstruck celebrity thing, or the diamond studded vacations, but I did get why he enjoyed a Five Guys hamburger with jalapeno!

Sadly, between the burger and the rough and tumble basketball, there has been little for the American middle class to relate to.

The Court is wide open, and the opportunity for many retorts and puns are endless. I'm for the tact that it's not even worth my time commenting . When a bunch of Neanderthals and blind Caucasian College Girls put this misfit into office, I figured that any Comments would be wasted until the intelligent of this Nation who weren't victims of the " Pied Piper , got together and brought about his Impeachment . To wait until 2012 would be a folly to equal the travesty that was perpetrated upon us that fateful day in November , 2008 . If you weigh the destruction he has wrought the past two years , as he follows Soros' Dictum, and figure you have 2 years to wait before taking action, there may not be anything left to act upon. To yell out his penchant for playing little boy games, taking untold vacations and giving the " First Moose " and offspring a turn around the World with every breath , is pointless. Put a beggar on horseback and he'll ride to Hell . Did you expect to put this little boy in the candy store at night, and not see him make himself sick by eating too much ? Nah, the course of action is clear. The Republicans haven't had the guts to scream early and often about his outright destruction of the Constitution, and his assault on Legal Americans , those who still have jobs and pay their taxes. They have been too busy playing the , " One-up-manship " games . I got you on that one, or you got me on this" contest . There is no more 2 party system. The name of the one and only party destroying America today can be called the " Republicrats " and anyone who thinks that this past November at the polls will make a difference, belongs following the " Yellow Brick Road " to see the Wizzard.

Mortgage refinancing means re-funding the mortgage loan with better terms as well as conditions, most likely from a different lender. It is one way to save money. Search online for "123 Mortgage Refinance" they found me 3.1% refinance rate and also gave free analysis of my mortgage.

The Thanksgiving truce was short-lived. The nasty, mean-spirited comments are flying again; so much for good will. The President suffered a minor injury; on his return to the White House he checked in to have a cut lip stitched. So why is this a reason to bad-mouth him? Some people begrudge a few hours of holiday time, then mock his injury. No class at all, folks. Give your hatred and bad manners a rest; it ill becomes you.

Mr. President, as chief executive of my country you have my support.

But it's not a race thing.. I do hope, however, that karma gets him for all the Predator Drone civlian deaths he's directly responsible for in AfPak - he's killed thousands of innocent people via flying robots..

Or friendly journalists, both would be equally effective. And the journalists would report that he can dunk,and that he walks on water, but which makes it tough to take a shower since he repels water so well.

RIPLIBS "Hope it was a Marine who put a hurtin on the Messiah!"

DC Sage wrote: President Obama is the Commander in Chief of all U.S. Armed Forces. Marines usually afford the same respect to the Commander in Chief that they afford to the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Marines are generally not stinking yellow traitors who rail at their chain of command.

On the other hand, the President's stunning series of victiories over the do-nothings has left some do-nothing flunkies down on their knees and muttering that he must be their "Messiah" to have opened up so many cans of whipass on the hapless do-nothing gang that can't shoot straight.

Take a cue from their Fox newscasters, and beat it into their feeble minds with short, easy words. "Bad problem take long time to fix. Old way not work. Ideas good... poop throwing bad. Opinion not facts. Opinion talk show not news. Opinion talk show host just bully. Bullies are dumb. Bullies talk loud and point fingers. Bullies don't fix things. Bullies break them."

You can bring a fool to the internet, but you can't teach him how to research, or fact check, or verify his sources, or consider that he may be getting manipulated by the idiot box. He just thinks whatever radio/tv news host yammers on the loudest is the most righteous.

screwjob22: "Barry the incompetent boob is basking in the glow of his phenomenal 39 percent job approval rating. Latest poll is by Zogby the Demobrat pollster. Way to go Barry. Simply outstanding."

DC Sage wrote: Some white racist bigots continue to revisit the old racist stereotype that all African Americans are dumb and all white people are smart. President Obama's competence and cool is so unnerving to one white racist bigot that he repeats the racist stereotype over and over again "Barry the incompetent boob".

Yes the President did break the 100% white guy quota on the U.S. Presidency and yes he is quite competent and has done a very good job in the past two years. The President's competency and courage in the face of so much white racist bigotry and bloody-jawed white racist hate is a daily reminder to bigots that just being white no longer trumps lack of hard work, lack of qualifications and a lack of a higher education in America.

I've been a fly on the wall in conservative white society since I was born. The hate and vitriol always goes hand in hand with denial. Tell someone who just used the 'n' word they're a racist, and they'll immediately say "no I'm not, one of my best friends is black!"
Tell them you knew how they'd react the first time they saw a black man even getting close to being elected. Predictably, they'll claim it's all about socialism. Or the big bad tax goblin. Like their messiah Glenn Beck, they'll even have the gall to say that the President is the truly racist one.
Read up on developmental psychology and you'll learn racism is developed by the adolescent mind as a way of identifying with one's group. Well adjusted psyches then grow beyond only being able to respect people just like themselves.
The rest end up stunted, shallow, narrow-minded bigots.
I can respect the conservative who can actually explain their economic stances, giving precise examples of the policies that upset them. But these packs of wild animals that have taken over the limelight are scary. They're one pitchfork away from a lynch mob.

With the actual fire crossing the border of the Koreas shouldn’t the President be on the phone exhausting every political tool to advert the possible outbreak of all-out-war on a peninsula where 37,000 U.S. troops are stationed? I understand that a man deserves some time to spend with family and friends, but how often have you, your spouse, your father or mother worked late to put out a “fire” at the office or meet a deadline. The President owes it to those stationed in Korea along with their spouses, children, family and friends – not to mention the nation as a whole - to sacrifice his time with own family. Ultimately President Obama has made a bad and very selfish choice. For today, and days like today President Obama needs to get off the court and in the office.

I understand that a man deserves some time to spend with family and friends, but how often have you, your spouse, your father or mother worked late to put out a “fire” at the office or meet a deadline. The President owes it to those stationed in Korea along with their spouses, children, family and friends – not to mention the nation as a whole - to sacrifice his time with own family. Ultimately President Obama has made a bad and very selfish choice. For today, and days like today President Obama needs to get off the court and in the office.

These "Loser" RepubliCONs all seem to think, they could do better job than President Obama is doing, but, I ask you, when they had all the power in Washington, what did they do, besides line their own pockets and the pockets of their friends, at the expense of the working taxpayers of this still great nation??? ~ After so many years of RepubliCON abuse, American voters should be ASHAMED of themselves, for electing ANY of these "Low Life Loser" types, in the recent mid-term elections!!!


Remember folks, that there are only two things, that really burn a RepubliCON's behind: (1.) a flame about 2 1/2 feet high, and, (2.) the ironic fact, that we now have a BLACK man living in the WHITE house!!!


RepubliCONs just can't seem to deal with that reality, and, they will continue to cry and moan, until they have another one of their own stooges back in the Oval Office, so they can go right back to their old game, of STEALING from American taxpayers!!!


Continue playing whatever games you enjoy, Mr. President, and, my hat is off to you, for the GREAT job you are doing, in spite of the RepubliCONs, who have stood in the way, since your first day in office!!!


(I just wonder, how Mr. Boehner would look, with a fat lip???)

I feel so bad that this happened to President Obama. I know how much that hurts, and how difficult it will be for him to talk,
especially now with Congress starting again.
I am tired of him being made the scape-goat for all the wrongs in our country. If you google his accomplishments of our President, you will see all the good things he has done.
Now we need to pray that he has the spine to stand up for what he believes in, and not give in to the demands of the Republicans.

Pretty interesting to see the enlightened comments in here by so many folks who forgot to take their medications and for some unknown reason didn't remember that they couldn't remember whether their mothers were actually their sisters or perhaps some other relative. One thing is certain.....they were all wearing their white sheets secretly where nobody else could see them while making their comments as all of them are cowards, and serious cowards at that.

I am no great fan of the President's but some of the racist filth being directed against him is just plain wrong. If you can't refrain from leveling racial slurs against the man for the sake of our common humanity, our public discourse or just plain good taste, then at least knock it off for the good of your own cause.

Hey Truth35: Make up your mind. How can Obama be pushing "the most dangerous, radical, liberal agenda" that is "fundamentally altering the nature of the American government's role in people's lives" (to quote one of your fellow knee-jerk Obama-haters), AND simultaneously be doing nothing but "play[ing] golf or basketball" (to quote the knee-jerk Obama hater that is you).

Do you see why people laugh at your type? It's not simply because we disagree with your point of view. Criticism is fine, if it is based in fact and makes sense. Try inserting some logic into your statements and maybe, just maybe, they'll have some credibility.

Speaking of facts, nice name there, Truth35. If you have to put the word "truth" in your screen name, chances are truth is exactly what's missing from your comments.

I'm glad to see so many people who spend the day, from the sound of it, at work -- and taking time to read the internet and make ignorant comments while there, too, it seems. What a great workers YOU all are! What difficult jobs you have that you have time to do this -- or maybe you're sitting at home and don't think the President deserves to celebrate Thanksgiving break for a few hours. And I'm sure you are regularly asked to work in the middle of the night like our President is. I'm sure you're awakened from your sleep, and asked to make life-and-death choices too, right? And if you are off today -- how many times did you check in with your office? I can guarantee you that the President has had to review a number of things, take calls, and sit for briefings just today -- the guy never gets weekends like you do. So, God forbid he take a few hours to get some exercise -- since his job isn't really that stressful, right?

It was weak when the left picked at Bush for how he used his time; and unless you also made the same comments about Bush at the time on his MANY, MANY, MANY vacations, it's hypocritical too. The President is in DC and working this weekend. Unlike Bush who spent A LOT of time in Texas while Cheney ran an unelected shadow government.

Someday there will be another Republican President. When this happens, you'll want to those that didn't vote for him or her to show respect. Why don't you try a little of that? At least use some common freaking sense and criticize the guy on something worth criticizing.

Our country is NOT falling apart! We live in an amazing country with lots of opportunities and a Leader who makes us proud to be American! You need to lose the 'loser attitude' and do something to help improve the situation created by the past government of Bush/Cheney screwed up policy!

There is just something very unpresidential about this man. He looks like any other young black (okay, half-black) man in the 'hood playing basketball, strutting down the street, rapping, etc., etc. What were the people who voted for him thinking? Oh, silly me! They weren't thinking. Anyway, note to all liberals: We Republicans are not going to fall into the same trap by choosing the female equivalent of Obama, Sarah Palin, as our candidate for the 2012 elections. It will be a new face for a new generation of conservatives. And we're going win, because nobody wants the half-black equivalent of Sarah Palin to stay in the White House past 2012.

No truth35 the answer is that the country fell apart during the Repuclican Congressional Control and Republican Executive Control. It was under the control of the Republicans that a surplus was turned into a deficit with unfunded tax reductions, a tillion dollar unfunded medicar part D law, and two wars that were not put on the books, one of which was unprovoked. It is under Obama that the country has rebounded albeit slowly. That is the truth and the country is so stupid that they want to cede power back to this same bunch that has said that they will do nothing different.
