The President bumped his head as he stepped into Marine One Monday morning at the White House.
WHITE HOUSE (CNN) - There was a minor bump on the road - actually a minor bump on the head - as President Barack Obama departed Monday for Elkhart, Indiana to sell his stimulus plan to Americans.
While boarding Marine One on Monday morning, the president turned to wave goodbye and ever so slightly bumped the left side of his head on the doorway to the helicopter. He seemed to recover quickly, then ducked before boarding the helicopter that would take him to Air Force One. Unfortunately for Obama, there were many cameras there to capture the accident.
This isn’t the first time a president’s head has collided with Marine One: President George W. Bush hit his head on the side of the helicopter while boarding shortly after taking office — also in full view of a row of cameras.
Luckily for both men, no visible signs of injury resulted from the minor mishap.
If that is all you can report on, you should get a pay cut!
lol, let the bloopers begin.
We have hungry people in Alaska.!!!....the President bumping his little head is not significant.............why aren't we getting supplies to these folks.....what is wrong with this government....looks to me like CNN has more power than our government...you report your opinion and it happens...why don't you report why we are not fixing our hunger problems ...give the opinion that bail out money for hunger is more important .....What is Palin doing about this?
I am pretty sure nobody really cares about his minor head in the bump right now...
People are pretty miserable...and they need something more meaty..story.
Hopefully it knocked some sense into the man about this so called spending, I mean "stimulus bill."

Wow, all you hateful right wing jerks stoop even lower. Instead of feeling sympathy and wishing well for the President and being thankful that he wasn't badly hurt, you guys continue to attack/ridicule him and now you're attacking CNN as well! Unbelievable. You neo-cons really need to deal with your hatred.
Yes because the democrats were always so respectful of Bush. By the way, this has been reported for all presidents since Ford at the least. Why should it be different for Obama?
I'm sure if this was serious and his head was busted open it would instantly heal.
And why is this news? He just bumped his head. It's happened to all of us.
News is when BUSH tries to open a locked door. Obama bumping his head is not news.
CNN- are you serious? There's an old saying that "You shouldn't speak unless it improves the silence." I'd say the same goes for "reporting" (I use that term loosely) things like this.
News Flash: Obama pulled the shoelace on his left shoe this morning while getting ready, and it broke. He got a replacement from a drawer, re-laced his shoe and went on about his day. No injury was reported.
COME ON!!! AND YOU WONDER WHY MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS THE REPUTATION IT DOES?!?!?!
Unbelievable. I cannot believe something so minor & stupid would make CNN. Find something important to report on!
Please tell me that real journalism hasn't died. It's ok to report it as a oneliner, but come on, please don't feature it as Breaking news.
What's the matter CNN.....run out of Republicans to give air time to about the stimulus?
