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.

    So much for Ms. "transparency", "I have nothing to hide", "I am an open book" Palin.

    What will be revealed is a history of mental instability. I bet she takes various prescription drugs.

    I believe it will also reveal that Trig is Bristol's child.

    This is just so sad from the campaign of transparency and the candidate who claims to be truthful

    She is hiding something, but what? Abortions she had? Not being the mother of her youngest? Whatever she is hiding, she must be hiding it because she knows it would lose her votes, so let's just trust her on that and vote for someone else...

    Sarah Palin is the ultimate republican tool, another of many stunts from McCain, a political calculation to supposedly bring votes from Hillary supporters (actually their beliefs are the opposite), feminists (even though she's far from the feminist ideology), and those independents who can be easily fooled or some Jerry Springer fans who don't pay attention to details and just see cute faces and are only capable of understanding keywords and catch phrases ("joe six-pack", "maverick", "hockey mom", "he doesn't share our values", "pallin' around", "job creation", "drill baby drill", "socialists", etc).

    We have seen during the last weeks that she's not, and probably never be, ready to be President or VP. She can't even answer questions that my 14 year old niece can, she barely survived the debate by repeating lines that someone wrote for her, giving non-answers and dodging the questions. Moreover she is already involved in corruption, unethical behavior and abuse of power. Palin DOESN'T EVEN KNOW what the VP POSITION CONSISTS OF... or what the 1st AMENDMENT REALLY IS!!!!

    We need someone above the average... she's intellectually just alright. We cannot afford a "just alright person" for the hard times ahead. McCain put his political calculations first, not our country! McCAIN SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER, SHAME ON HIM! McCAIN KEEPS SHOWING US POOR JUDGMENT AND ERRATIC BEHAVIOR DURING THE CAMPAIGN, WHICH HE CAN"T EVEN CONTROL!!!

    For JUDGMENT and EXPERIENCE vote OBAMA / BIDEN '08!

    As the youngest, presumably healthiest candidate of the four, why has she not released these records? It seems as though she'd have the least to be concerned about...not releasing them gives the appearance of trying to hide something...just makes me curious.

    Aw gee! And she promised she would release the records. All talk, no substance. When McCain runs again in 2016, he should at least vet his vp candidate.

    I didn't think there was anything there. Now I am beginning to suspect there's a bombshell in those records.

    However, who needs any more reason to vote to make sure Sarah Palin never gets anywhere near the White House. Extreme views, totally unquailfied, and the fatal combination of ignorance and arrogance. All bluster, no substance. And the dirtiest of the dirty campainers for McCain. She has told more lies in two short months than anyone I have ever seen.

    No way, no how, no McCain, and no Palin. Obaba '08. Yes We Can.

    We are America and we want our country back. Go out and vote!

    I kind of figured that this lieing densed woman wouldn't released her records after all.

    i'm more than sure NOW that Sarah Palin is hiding more than a yeast infection.

    release your medical record Palin!!!

    Because she was pregnant when she got married, that's one of the major reasons. She doesn't want the evangelicals to know she's a hypocrite. But then again, they don't read anyway. They just believe what McCain & Sarah have told them.

    And just what makes her so special? Not vetted – now this! You're kidding! How much more foolery from this "I have nothing to hid" woman!

  24. lovable liberal

    Didn't the McCain campaign vet her at all? Doesn't look like it.

    Frankly, America has already had too much Presidential decision-making by gut. President Obama will give us intelligent decisions for a change.

  25. CA for Obama!

    I guess they don't want anyone to know about that abortion she had in college.
