This is called schadenfreude.

People in the upper echelons of government are notoriously unpopular, so it's no wonder that some people raised a chuckle at the news that the POTUS had an elbow smacking him in the face which resulted in a busted lip.

People are so PC and easily offended. He suffered a minor scrape, that is all.

It would only be in bad taste if he was seriously hurt, which he is not.

It's like ''Dubya'' choking on a pretzel; mildly amusing.

Having said that, I don't find this incident particularly amusing, but I can understand why other people might do so.

Here is another link that gives a little more information:
Link to article

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.

The White House said the injury happened during their fifth and final game when Decerega turned to take a shot and hit Obama, who was playing defense, in the mouth with his elbow.

Wow, not even one post before someone has to mention Bush.

What does that have to do with the topic at hand?

Please stay on topic. Thanks!

Hmm, different rules now? Just yesterday you said that bringing Obama into a topic on Palin was OK.

Btw, I find it in poor taste to laugh at the injury of others. Be it Obama or anyone else.

Its a shame the teabaggers dont feel the same way.

Why is this news? The poor guy got his lip busted...pretty sure it isn't the only injury Our president has had in his life time.

...Oh, I get it...because it's Obama getting hurt. Lulz I forgot how much Republicans love seeing a Democrat in pain.

How would anyone like to be the plastic surgeon that got the job of stitching up his lip?
