Palin campaign stonewalls on 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.

    Please get out and vote! We can not allow this women anywhere near the White House. She's a pack of lies and anything but a reformer. What is it that her supporters see in her? Go vote!

    No offense to the ladies, but this sounds like Hillary not releasing her White House documents from Bill's administration to support her claim of 35 years of experience.

    If she can't tell the truth about something this simple, how can I expect her to tell the truth as Vice President?

    I've said it before, I was for McCain until he picked this woman. It's like they don't care at all.

    So she's pregnant again. No big deal. She'll be back in Alaska this time next week.

    Power-abuse, unethical, liar, subpoena-dodger, now trying to evade the medical records submission?

    She should comply with the rules or step down. Yes, they do apply to her too.

    Why does this surprise anyone? She is an unknown entity. McCain, Obama and Biden have been around the block for a few years and, as such, are known subjects. Obviously not well vetted by the RNC before her debut as VP pick, she carries a lot more volatile baggage than any of the other candidates and that baggage is going to blow up real good when it's opened. Her previous connections with the Alaskan secessionist party, the connection to wingy preachers, her "good ol' redneck girl" image, her ethics, or rather, her interpretation of ethics, her basic, just average, intelligence, her ignorance of the real world, of the American system of government, of politics and of good campaigning. And this thing about not releasing even a brief medical history is too suspicious to ignore. Too many things she will have to explain or cover, maybe too many people up there in Alaska who know the real story and are willing to talk about it. She's really is just a pitbull with lipstick, not at all a VP.

    I can't wait to see Sarah go back to Alaska. Her ranting and raving and shrill voice won't be missed. Her far right wing political and religious ideas indicate she is a dangerous person to hold public office and I will never understand why McCain picked her. OBAMA '08

    Well when no hospital in Alaska is permitted to give out any info on the birth of Palin's son – i't s no surprise to me that her Medical Records haven't appeared! I think there are many secrets veiling Sarah Palin.

    Hmmm what is she hiding. It is amazing how she continues to throw stones and hide her hands. It would not surprise me if she had her tubes tied and the last child in fact may not be hers after all. Could it be??? The daughter's baby?

    America deserves what they get if we vote McCain/Palin. The whole world will laugh at us and the USA will be the greatest loser in world affairs. Those crazy religious and racial sentimentalists will be the downfall of this country if McCain is selected by fraud at the ballot box. Mark my WORDS!
