“The president had gone to nearby Fort McNair to indulge in one of his favorite athletic pursuits, a game of basketball. It was a five-on-five contest involving family and friends and including Reggie Love, Obama’s personal assistant who played at Duke University.
Obama emerged from the building after about 90 minutes of play, wearing a 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 an ice pack against his mouth before he stood and walked away.

Obama had no public events scheduled during the long holiday weekend.”
Obama is too busy to actually work. Hillary Clinton worked today:
“Beijing held phone talks with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday on the tense situation following North Korea’s deadly bombardment of a South Korean island, the Chinese foreign ministry said.”
Hillary worked, Obama
golfed basketballed. Perhaps Obama was thinking of his thumping in 2010 or the thumping to come in 2012 and went to play games and escape Michelle Obama.
Now FoxFan does note that Bush was much targeted than Barack's been. I agree with that. I called out Bush loudly and regularly. And I was far from alone.
But FoxFan might try wearing a thinking cap. IAmBiggie plays the race card.
I'm so damn sick of that.
Read through the comments and find a racist remark before IAmBiggie cries racism.
There was none.
This is the mentally crippled and they need to be called out.
I'm not in the mood, I don't want to hear that some White person is sympathetic and that's why they rushed to make the call.
I'm Black, I have to live with this s**t and "this s**t" includes people growing weary of the race card being played at the drop of a hat.
There is real racism in this world and a number of us will experience it. We do not need Barack's Cult to keep screaming "racism!" over and over when there's no racism there.
I'm so sick of this crap.
I didn't like George W. Bush and it wasn't because he was White. It was because he was a War Hawk. I don't like Barack Obama and it's not because he's mixed. It's because he is a War Hawk.
When White people scream racism over and over falsely it makes me wonder if they're not feeling some guilt? For their own actions? Maybe. Or maybe over the fact that they only support Barack because they see him as Black?
I have no idea but I know they're not helping and they need to stop. They need to stop immediately. They're not helping anyone.
2010 is almost over. Hopefully that means only two more years of Barack in the White House. And I thought Bush was the worst we could eve endure . . .
