    President Obama SLIGHTLY bumped his head while getting into Marine One:

    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - President Obama bumps his head - Blogs from CNN.com

    Is this really breaking-news worthy? The President bumped his head!?! I like the guy and voted for him but this is getting out of hand. With the unprecedent economic crisis, global warming, crime, starvation and poverty in the world I am sure CNN could have found something of more substance and importance to report on.

    Yeeeeesh!

    believe the history texts are full of references to Gerald Ford's bumps and bruises

    But, you know, swordfish, it cuts both ways.

    Is this thread really news worthy?

    With all the goings-on in the world ("unprecedent economic crisis, global warming, crime, starvation and poverty") couldn't you have posted something more substantive than CNN's coverage of the president's bumped head?

    I'm pretty sure the last 10 presidents bumped there head on that exact same spot.....You would think that by now there would be a rubber bumper there.

    Stupid?- Check

    Clumsy?- Affirmative

    Empire?- Democrat party.

    He didn't bump it nearly as hard as Bush did that one time. In fact, it looks like Obama started to almost bump it, but he did a maneuver haha.

    Wait till the shiite hits the proverbial fan, and this admin resorts to press conferences over the most mundane of over-comings.

    Then, by your own admission, no 'shiite' has hit the fan as of yet. I'm glad you agree that things are going swimmingly with the new administration.

    Cheers.
