Oops!… It Looks Like Obama Fibbed About Giffords “Opening Her Eyes for the First Time”

In one of the most memorable moments of the memorial last night in Tucson, Barack Obama told the pep rally audience that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords had opened her eyes for the first time on Wednesday night.
It was very emotional moment:

But, unfortunately it was not true.
The Sonoran Chronicle reported that Rep. Giffords could open her eyes on Sunday.
(The Sonoron has since pulled the article.)

The bullet “traveled the entire length of the brain on the left side,” said Dr. Rhee, Chief Trauma Surgeon at the University Medical Center, at a press conference on Sunday. In terms of being shot in the head, this is “about as good as it’s going to get,” said Rhee.

Giffords can open her eyes, but because she is on a ventilator she can’t speak, said Rhee.

The surgery took about two hours, said Rhee.

Rhee attributed Giffords’ surviving the gunshot wound to a variety of factors, including a fast response by paramedics, proper care by the hospital staff, and luck. The bullet did not cross from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, nor did it go through the geometric center of the brain.

Would someone please tell me this was not planned.

More… The Tucson Sentinel also reported that Gabby could open her eyes in their Tuesday article.
