Obama: Hardest moment in my life was Sasha's illness
Politico44 ^ | 3/30/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 03/30/2012 11:22:31 AM PDT by ColdOne

President Obama reflected on the hardest moment of his life in a video released by the campaign, pointing to his daughter Sasha's illness when she was an infant.

"People ask me what was the hardest time in my life — they ask, well what about during the debt ceiling debate and this and that and the other thing," Obama said. "Sasha got meningitis when she was 3 months old. I still remember going to the hospital together and they had to give her a spinal tap."

"Your world narrows to this very small point," Obama said, about her illness.. "There's one thing you care about and you don't care about anything else."

Obama's remarks came during a dinner with six supporters at a Washington D.C. restaurant earlier this month

Was this before or after his vote for infanticide?

What a filthy piece of garbage. If Moochelle and he didn’t want her to be delivered 3 years before, he’d have had her slaughtered in an abortuary. What a jackass!

The hardest time in this illegal alien’s life has got to be his trying to pretend that he’s an American.

What a mawkish, maudlin POS this guy is! I guess the second most horrible moment was when he learned that his would-be son Trayvon was shot.

Good for Sasha that she got well. Too bad her daddy resumed caring about destroying the U.S.

I thought we were supposed to leave his kids out of the discussion?

Anyway, it’s lucky for her we didn’t have Obamacare at the time.

If he would have just had her aborted, he would have avoided this. Of course, he wouldn’t have the opportunity to use it for political purposes.

I disagree with almost all that BHO says and stands for, but on this one small strand I think most can agree a sick child is one of the most terrifying things in a parents life.

If that really happened — and you have to question it — I can sympathize with him in such a trying time.

Still, I have the feeling that he would sacrifice little Sasha to Molech in the blink of an eye if he thought it was necessary and would work to get him reelected. You know, for the greater good.

False, she didn’t have menegitis. It was a scare. I went through the same thing with my 6 week old daughter. It was a bad expereience but not the hardest moment of my life by far. If this is his “hardest” moment, then wow, what a wuss.

One would think he doesn’t have to play this card unless he were behind Romney. With him up by double-digits in some polls, it strikes me as a bit odd Obama would pull out the “I’m really human” tactic.

I imagine it’s pretty hard for Sasha to know her manchurian daddy is a *(&^*%$)ing illegal, lying purple lipped alien bent on distroying the country.

Oh, I dunno, If I was potus the hardest part of my ife would be comforting the parents and widos and children of young soldiers who died in a senseless war while I was negotiating secretly with the enemy to save my own political career

But then, maybe that’s just me

Okay, I'm starting to see a pattern here.

Over the past month or so, Obama has invoked his children repeatedly, clearly bringing them into the political conversation.

This guy doesn't do anything by accident. I just haven't figured out why he's doing it. Family values??

“Sasha got meningitis when she was 3 months old. I still remember going to the hospital together and they had to give her a spinal tap.”

sniff.
I guess if he brings it up, we can talk about that, right?

So if she’s about 7, then he “still remembers” over 6 whole years ago going to the hospital when his daughter nearly died?Wow, that’s a really impressive memory.

Before we can believe this story to be true, we need to demand to see Shasha’s medical records to see if she really was in the hospital and if she really did have meningitis.

With all due respect Mr. President I suspect that the majority of 300+ million Americans would say that your America-hating policies have made the last few years more miserable for them then was necessary.

Quit whining, grow up, and get lost.

Once again using his kids for political gain. He is trying to gin up sympathy as a “concerned parent”. A victim to be pitied that his daughter was once sick, as if no one else ever had to sit through a child’s illness. What an a**hat.

Too bad her daddy cared so little for new borns that he voted to allow them to die when an abortion failed.

We (the Obamas) can use our kids for campaign purposes but no one else can mention it when we use taxpayer’s money for their damn vacation!

******

The President’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, said she’s astonished the Republican presidential candidate would criticize Obama for allowing his teen daughter to go on a school trip to Mexico.

She argued children shouldn’t be targeted on the campaign trail.

“I think that children, for candidate purposes, have always been off-limits in presidential campaigns, and really any campaign,” Cutter told MSNBC on Wednesday. “I’m surprised that Rick Santorum wouldn’t agree with that.”

“” It was terrible.

Here, I was sitting with Bill and Bernadine, listening to old tapes of my pastor, going through the edit of my book, and we gets a call from Moochelle, screaming for me to git my ass home to take my daughter to the hospital, cause she couldn’t get up and leave her lobster to git cold.

So’s I put out my cigarette, down my beer, give Bernadine a kiss and rush back to “she who must be obeyed” to take my daughter to the hospital.

Man, I never ever wannta piss off Mochelle like dat ever again. Wookie scare da shit outa me!””
