President Obama Needs 12 Stitches After Basketball Injury!

Filed under: Barack Obama

After playing basketball with friends and family on Friday, President Obama had to visit the White House Medical Unit to get 12 stitches in his lip.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stated:

"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."

While under a local anesthetic, the medical staff stitched Obama up using a finer filament than usual, which allows for more numerous and tighter stitches, resulting in a smaller scar.

As if he doesn't have enough to deal with right now!

Get well, Mr. President.

White House Attempts To Stop Judge From Issuing An Injunction To Ban DADT!

wenn5547396jb.jpg

So disappointing - and INFURIATING!

Earlier this month, following a non-jury trial that lasted three weeks, US District Court Judge Virginia Phillips ruled that Don't Ask, Don't Tell was indeed unconstitutional. She could possibly be issuing an injunction today that would ban the policy - but the White House is now attempting to STOP it!

WTF?

The White House apparently feels that the aforementioned injunction challenges Congress, and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explains in a statement:

"This filing in no way diminishes the president's firm commitment to achieve a legislative repeal of DADT – indeed, it clearly shows why Congress must act to end this misguided policy."

Phillips' injunction stems from a lawsuit filed by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights organization hoping for a nationwide ban, and are obviously very disappointed with the White House's current stance.

Their attorney, Dan Woods, says:

"It's sad and disappointing that the administration would file such a document days after it urged Congress to repeal 'don't ask, don't tell."

Agreed! We have the opportunity to BAN this foolish policy for once and all, right now, and now they're trying to throw it back into the shark tank for more debate?!

Unbelievable!

This is truly a sad day for the Obama administration. They should all be absolutely ashamed of themselves, after the tireless efforts so many have made to get the same HUMAN RIGHTS as everyone else.

Thoughts??
