Ray Decerega of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute did not have Secret Service guns drawn on him, he was not wrestled to the ground. He may not be getting any legislation through the White House in the near future, but it could have been worse.

Decerega caught President Barack Obama with an elbow during a Fort McNair pickup game, according to the Associated Press. (The White House did not say who it was with the elbow but CNBC’s Darren Rovell reported the name.)

Obama was treated back at the white house, where he got a local anesthetic and 12 stitches.

Best joke comes in a tweet by Eric Stangel: Republicans already saying it was a charge.

      I don’t know you—you don’t know me, either—but comments like this and the one the other day make you sound like a complete moron. I’m not saying you are one. Hell, you may be a bright, non-idiotic person. But if that is the case, then these comments are doing you quite a disservice.

      This had nothing to do with Dubyass. As far as I know, that idiot—quite a bit of evidence to support that—was not on the court or in the vicinity, for that matter. We only blame him for things that ARE his fault (Iraq, Afghanistan, economy, debt, and on and on and on ad nauseum). As opposed to right-wingnut morons who blame everything on Obama. (He was NOT the instigator of the Iraq War, jackasses!!!!!) Crap like that just makes you look idiotic and childish.

      By the way, “tree huggers”? What does environmental responsibility have to do with the idiocy you are claiming?

    Under NCAA rules, would “inadvertant” elbow from Rey Decerega have been considered a flagrant foul? >> http://clicky.me/3Ij5
