No one doubts that the Obamas had a frightening scare with their daughter Sasha when she became ill, but a few years later, they're having trouble getting the story straight.
Here is video showing that President Obama either misrepresented the facts in telling a personal story about his daughter Sasha having been "diagnosed with meningitis," or he simply did not know the facts. At any rate, theNew York Times reported:
In her speech, Mrs. Obama also told the story of how her daughter Sasha would not stop crying when she was 4 months old. A doctor’s visit revealed she might have meningitis;she ultimately did not, but the illness produced a scare.
Thankfully, she did not have meningitis. But why would Obama say she was "diagnosed with meningitis."
This is not a huge deal, but for a President who has felt so free to chide opponents for not getting facts straight, it would behoove the President to be more careful himself.
