  • Why is this even newsworthy.. I went to CNN earlier to read about N.K and S.k and see the breaking news scroll by saying President Obama got stitches.... sorry he got hurt but gee kids get hurt every day playing any kind of ball and dont make it on the news ya know? I am more concerned with the possiblity of war breaking out than a busted lip!

  • 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.
    __________________________
    It wasn't that big..the type of stitch they used took smaller stitches so the likelihood of a scar is minimized...and it looks like the Congressional Hispanic Caucus took the shot.

  • As much as I do not agree with Obama's policies, I still have compassion for him because man that had to hurt. That is a painful injury.
    I hope he has a speedy recovery.

  • Well, I got voted down, because I don't think he's a pretty boy. Childish and immature as usual ladies.
