Who says there is no god and justice? Obama has been porking us for two years now and now he called in the TSA to help out with the SEIU to stick it to the American people! LOL this is too funny.

At least he's getting some exercise. As for all you people that have the rude comments. You should be complaining to your congressional representatives. They are the ones voting on the passage of each law. He can veto them but it pretty much comes down to their voting power. You do understand how this works right?

How is this news?

I also question why he would need 12 stitches if he walked out of the gym with only a piece of gauze being dabbed to his lip. The mouth bleeds like crazy when it is just a little cut so a cut that would require this amount of stitches would bleed heavy and I would think he would have had blood on his shirt at least and on his face.

Also would love to thank the person that did this to the idiot. I know a lot of spouses and soldiers that are thinking it since this man is considering freezing our wages while we know he will get a hefty pay raise for himself.

"...saw the president in an upstairs window, pressing something white against his mouth."

Just slightly different from what happened during the Clinton years...

Come on people- this was an accident, I can tell by the comments made that they were all made by Republicans. Stop the hate, at least Obama won the election into office and it was not stollen.

Thank you for your service, truly. That said-why should you be getting raises during a recession? I think all federal wages should be frozen and, in some cases (non-defense), mandatory furloughs should be enacted.

I have not heard of Obama giving himself a raise and believe that is probably just a rumor. Something to think about, though, is the fact that the President's salary has remained the same since 2001. Have you gotten a pay raise in the past decade? Probably so.
