Palin campaign stonewalls on medical records

 Palin has not yet released her medical records.

LAKEWOOD, Ohio (CNN) – With less than 24 hours to go before the presidential election, Sarah Palin still has not released her medical records and there is no indication the campaign is planning to do so.

Two weeks ago, Palin’s campaign told several reporters traveling with the campaign that a summary of the governor’s medical history would be made public before election day.

Reporters were told that details on Palin’s medical background would be released early last week. Last Thursday, after that timeframe had passed, a campaign aide backed off the previous pledge, saying the campaign wasn’t sure when the information would be released.

John McCain, Barack Obama and Joseph Biden have all provided details about their medical history.

  4. REPUBLICAN for LIFE not by VOTE

    TO THE FELLOW HARD-CORE REPUBLICANS

    I CANNOT FACE ANOTHER FOUR YEARS OF MY PARTY. I AM THEREFORE VOTING DEMOCRAT AS A WAY OF PROTEST AGAINST OUT OF TOUCH LEADERS OF THE PARTY INCLUDING THE ONCE MARVELLOUS JOHN MCAIN WHO IS NOW TURNED INTO A MONSTER. BESIDES IF THE WAR IN IRAQ AND THE CREDIT CRUNCH HAS DONE TO YOU WHAT IT DID TO ME(because of our party's snobbish, self fulfilling policies), YOU WOULD EITHER NOT VOTE OR VOTE THE BEST PARTY FOR THE DAY. my vote cannot be taken for granted. If you vote REPUBLICAN (this year), YOU ARE JUST A FANATIC, or blind suppoter and God forbid we win again and this time it wont be a joke---WE WILL SUFFER. My vote is through Obama for the....(this is paiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Democrats.

  7. REPUBLICAN for LIFE not by VOTE

    CAN WE REALLY PROUDLY SAY 'FOUR MORE YEARS' BECAUSE WE ARE REPUBLICAN NO MATTER WHAT?

    WE HAVE NOT SUFFERED ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WE HEAR ABOUT TROUBLES NEXT DOOR, THEY HAVE NOT VISITED US YET. EVERY REPUBLICAN LIKE ME MUST VOTE SENSIBLY, NOT EMOTIONALLY. this is serious stuff, not a football game. How often do we see our top leaders endorsing the opposition? we should ask ourselves why???????????????

    Whatever...we know all we need to know about her anyway.

    That's because she has lied, over and over and over again about anything and everything. If her records are released, it will come to light that Trig is in fact Bristol's child.

    That's strange. It's not as if her record as a secessionist will show up on her medical history. One more day and this person is back in Alaska. Thankfully.

    I bet Trig grows up and calls Sarah Palin – Grandma – You betcha!
    What is she hiding?

    Palin isn't qualified to be VP and especially unqualified to be President. The American people do need to know the state of her health. What's she got to hide?

    What are you hiding, Sarah?

    You will not win the VP seat so you might as well let those records become public. I'm sure there are some people in Alaska very interested in seeing those records as well as the rest of the country.

    Wonder why? It would be interesting to see if they get released, probably not.

    Hopefully by tomorrow night this will be a moot point and no one will care about Sarah Palin's medical records! It does seems strange that she doesn't want to release them, though. The easiest way to avoid controversy on her medical records would be to make them public, if there's nothing there to hide.

    She's afraid the report will reveal that she does, in fact, not have a brain.

    She is a lying monster. I can only imagine the horrible things she is obviously hiding.

    She probably needed psychiatric help at some point in her life and they do not want people to know! Or maybe she had an abortion.
    Obama / Biden anyway!
    VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!

    Palin always has issues. I think think this woman is a push off and does not except to comply to any norms or rules – written or unwritten. I would ask the republicans to offer us better choices in future. She is always hiding something. American has better ladies who can lead and be trusted.
