Morning Tiger DID knock Madara, whom was IN Susan'oo, quite a few feet.
His intent was to kill Gai with that attack and possibly Bee.
"i will get rid of them for you."
So at that time he was serious. In fact I don't think since he entered THIS fight he has said that he wasn't. He arrived and basically said, "You kill them while I get the 9 tails".
also, "we need to kill them before we start the Genjutsu."
those are serious statements.
in other words in the previous situation he was trying to get Kurama and maybe Gyuki. Now he just wants to get started with his plan. Which means it maybe Meteor Bowling time and the Alliance are the pins!
Keep in mind he may be restricted due to being connected to the Juubi. So he may or may not be able to do all his jutsu like before. I don't see Obito phasing any attacks while connected either.
Also @ KYF. The other half of Kurama's chakra is sealed within Minato, inside the Death God dimension. This was stated in the Kushina flashback of the "birth of Naruto".
