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.

    Would seem to imply that she has something to hide...

    I always thought the whole "it's really her daughter's kid" story was a bit of a stretch, but unless you are afraid of something bad getting out before election day, why the delay?.... I guess it is just more reason not to trust her - not that there was much of a reason to believe her in the first place...

    Why is it such a secret if you have nothing to hide. Is she afraid that the report will show that the baby with Down's is not hers. Or some other problems during her college days.

    What they'll show is that she was pregnant when she got married. She, obviously, could have used some sex education when she was a teenager. Something she opposes now.

    She can't release the records...everyone would find out that Trig is really Bristol's son, and not hers.

    This just confirms my suspicion that the down syndrome child is really her daughters and they are covering it up. What 43 (at the time) year old motherhas a new born baby then decides to run for VP before the babys 2nd birthday? Either that or she was really born a moose and she now kills them for fun to get revenge on them shunning her as a young moosling.

    ...Lending even more support to the hypothesis that she was never pregnant with her youngest child.....
    It's not the behaviour–it's the hypocrisy. She just doesn't get that, and probably never will.

    And are we surprised? Whatcha hidin' Sarah? Actually, what else are you hiding, Sarah, and why do you keep lying to us?

    How anyone could vote for this woman is beyond my comprehension. Google dominionist and see what type of religious beliefs she follows. And she could become privy to the nuclear codes! Wake up, America.

    Ok, if JOHN MCCAIN and JOE BIDEN can release their records....and Palin cannot? Something is seriously wrong here.

    Either she has herpes, a history of drug use or something...way too fishy.

    A refusal to release medical records should at best be a mea culpa for Palin, and in reality, a disqualifier for her candidancy. With a 72 year old running mate, her refusal to establish her "state-of-health" is unacceptable.

    You liberals are the most insane individuals. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for the vile hatred that your sewer ridden mouth spew at this woman. You will all be judged one day and harshly...

    Let's think for a minute dems, I klnow it's hard for you to do but where is Obama's Birth Certificate(the real one), where are his tax returns and his medical records?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You do realize what an ignorant fool you seem like at this stage. Everybody knows Obama birth cert. is real, he released several years of his tax returns and his medical records as well. Where have you been?

    Thinking with your head instead of your brain I imagine.

    Make the wise choice – Vote Obama.

    Why they won't release her medical records? Because they don't want people to find out that "her" youngest child really ain't hers at all, it's her daughters. Airhead Palin has more skeletons in her closet then a cemetery.

  14. NO Palin

    Could it be becuase she did not give birth to her last child and it was her Daughters???? Crazy Right!!!

    I guess we will have to think that since she did not release her recordds and is hiding something.

    She's hiding something. I guess she under estimated the amount of time it takes to forge medical records.

    With Mccain being 72 years old and having reoccuring cancer There is a chance Palin could be President we the people should know the State of her Health!

    First, it would show that her wedding was "shotgun" because of her first child. Then, I can only imagine, there is probably some psychiatric information in those records. By hiding them, she's, at the very least, showing that she can't be up front about herself and her qualifications, but also, if she's "hiding" something like psychiatric help, she's making that shameful, and that is very damaging to those who are helped by psychiatric care. She is not smart or mature, but instead, is a self-serving liar.

    She either has not had a baby in the last year or she HAS had an abortion in the past.

  24. The dems on this board are disgusting

    You call yourself people? You are animals. For all the complaining of a dirty campaign, I have changed my mind on this campaign base as well in part on the hate spewing, name calling Obamabots on this board. Thanks!
