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.

    Palin, another corrupt Alaska politician. I will be there with bells on as the American people send her back to the great white north where she and her husband can continue their SUCCESIONIST movement.

    Could it be that her medical records will show she hasn't had a baby in the last 4 years?

    Well we all know she was having children when she was too old. Hence a down's syndrome baby which is a major factor in concieving in your mid to late 40's. What a poor lack of judgement.

    What's she got to hide? Her stretch marks? And that's nothing to be ashamed of as she has birth 5 beautiful kids. Go ahead Sarah, and release the records, not that it will make any difference at this late stage of the game.

    Could it be because she has trouble finding a doctor willing to document her last 'pregnancy'. I find it odd that a pregnant 40 something year old woman with a high risk pregnancy would fly from Texas to Alaska AFTER her water breaks. And this woman is an advocate of abstinance only education but her own daughter is living proof that it doesn't work which proves that Palin is beyond stubborn and America has had enough of that kind of mentality.

    I got it!! She MUST be an alien. She MUST be!! She sure doesn't seem to be up to par with current events.

    Best SNL line, "My god, you're folksy!!"

    SHE NEEDS TO RELEASE HER MEDICAL RECORDS, HOWEVER, THERE IS NOT A DOCTOR WHO WILL LIE ABOUT A PREGNANCY. THEY WILL NOT TAKE THAT CHANCE, MAY BE AS A GOVERNOR OF ALASKA, BUT NOT AS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!!

    With the projected outcome for tomorrow and the rest of the GOP, I think her medical past is about to become a moot point.

    HMMMMM....I always knew she was a mental case. Looks like she doesnt want her electro shock therapy getting out in the open.

    Probably shows she isn't the Mother of the Down Syndrome baby or that she has had an abortion........something that she doesn't want the public to know........

    She isn't releasing her medical records because it will show that she was not pregnant and is not the mother of her last child. Then the whole world will know she was lying from the beginning.

  21. A Pattern of Stone Walling

    I don't know whether she has anything to hide or not but this is a clear example of how she and John McCain think that the rules don't apply to them.

    When they rolled her out, they tried to keep her sequestered from the news media. Finally, they had to give in and let someone with some level of intelligence talk to her ... like Couric and Gibson ... and look what we found out ...

    She is a stonewaller ... she tried to do that with the ethic investigation in Alaska but it didn't work ...

    I can't follow behind this woman ... and that's saying something.

    With John McCain being a 72 year old guy .... with multiple bouts of cancer ... I refuse to take the risk on Sarah Palin.

  22. curious

    Is it possible she's had a medical procedure that would be contrary to her public image? ie. an abortion even though she states that she is pro-life

  23. pray2008pray

    I wonder what she is hiding.........hmmmmm....."an abortion" or "a baby that is not hers"?

    Typical of this woman – how is it that she is above the law? Why is she not held to the same standards as everyone else? Why don't the rules apply to her as well?

    Why would you vote for someone like her?
