State Senator Ricky Hendon Resigns! But, Who Knew Obama Was An Ass-Kicking Stud? | Chicago Political Commentary

Obama’s famous in Illinois for his thin skin.  Below from the Sun Times in Chicago Political Commentary recalling one of the more famous incidents. 

Afterward, Hendon wrote, Obama came to his desk and "told me in an eerie, dark voice that came from some secret place within the ugly side of him, 'You embarrassed me on the Senate floor and if you ever do it again, I will kick your ass!'"

Hendon said Obama then challenged him to go to the rear of the Senate chamber out of the eyesight of reporters for a fight, and Hendon did so. "A little pushing and shoving occurred, laced with profanity too vulgar to write, from both of us, until Sen. Donne Trotter and others separated us," Hendon wrote.The incident, Hendon wrote, showed that Obama "will not hesitate to fight on behalf of the United States if it comes down to it, just as he tried to fight me because of his personal beliefs."

I recall Hendon suggesting Obama was Irish instead of African American by ridiculing the Obama as O’Bama and asking what kind of black name was that.  It wasn’t about kids.
