Obama Knocks Romney for Not Releasing Medical Records, Hasn't Disclosed His Own
Breitbart ^

Posted on 08/20/2012 6:48:00 PM PDT by chessplayer

"This was brilliant timing on the president's part. All last week the Romney campaign was on offense and Obama was dealing with Vice President Race-Baiter and a campaign that had gotten so vicious it had finally backfired. But with the media all excited and eager to use GOP senate candidate Todd Akin's rape comments to damage the Romney-Ryan ticket and the GOP as a whole, Obama picked the perfect time to come before the White House press corps."

"First off, by surprising the media, Obama knew the few good ones in there wouldn't be as ready to hit him with tough questions as they would with some notice. Secondly, Obama knew that he would be asked about Akin and that his response would be what got all the media attention afterwards --"

"The President was asked about Akin, his negative campaign and the economy, but it was NBC's Chuck Todd who did Obama's bidding and lobbed a sweet softball right over the plate about Romney's taxes. This is when things got bizarre, because this is when Obama said something inadvertently hilarious. Yes, the least vetted president in the history of our great republic said that president's should be "open books," and then specifically cited tax returns and medical records."

While Obama has released a decade or so worth of tax returns, otherwise, he is the furthest thing from an "open book" when it comes to his medical records -- which he refuses to release. And yet, there stood Obama unchallenged by the lapdog media as he implied he's an "open book" about those very same medical records. And these records are important and relevant, especially in light of the fact that Obama is a former smoker (so we're told) and an admitted illegal drug abuser (including cocaine).

Romney /Ryan and the GOP voices need to move on this very quickly and demand the big “O”s medical records and drown out all of the media flack and sophistry that happened today.

The Mystery Man from Kenya wants Romney and Ryan to release their entire life histories. They need to make an ad standing side by side telling Barry the Kenyan Guy to kiss their @$$. Who the hell is Barack Hussein Obama? Americans haven’t a clue who he is.

If I were Romney I would make a huge production over this hissy fit of Herr Obama. Tell him to kindly shut his fat mouth. Tell him that those records are sealed as his own educational records are sealed. Obama is losing what is left of his “choom” infested mind. The bada$$ weed and the coke he snorted have burned out all central thought processing. Take off the gloves, Romney. This nation does not need another John McWimp or four more years of the Chicago thug-in-chief.

I wish Mitt would take the gloves off and start hammerin him.

He’s an absolute psychopath who feels no shame or irony in calling out Romney for not releasing HIS medical records! How many people could do that? Only psychopaths!

It is a setup. He has decided to release his own records, but wants to play this game and ensnare Romney.

The media has vetted Paul Ryan more in a week than they have vetted the King for his entire political career.

It's a tradition. Clinton never released his medical records. Democrat candidates are not expected to--only Republican candidates.

We knew more about Joe the Plumber than about Obama at the time people voted in 2008.

I’d like to know what drugs Obama is on. Bet he’s been on them for years. Part of why he has to use a monitor..He gets mixed up.

POS-POTUS

I think Romney is playing rope-a-dope, allowing THIS dope to keep making statements like this...and then WHAM, he’ll throw down every piece of his own info, from the LFBC to every transcript and application and “tax return” from his 65 years. and then he’ll say: “MATCH ME, SUCKAH!”

(or is that raaaacist..??)

We know that that for many years Obama was a known smoker of cigarettes—I believe he quit only recently. I’d hate to imagine what the doctor has told him in regards to a shorter life span from all that smoking!

Its time to hold the attackers of “Birthers” responsible for this continued nonsense of the Dems going after every Romney record.

The only response to these attacks on Romney are “Obama, release your Birth Certificate, College records, immigration information...”. Yet we still have PhonyCon Liberals in talk-radio and other GOP media who attack nconservatives who mention Obama Birther/Eligibility/College Records

Mr. Transparent....If I am hiring a mid-level manager at my company I would require college transcripts (If I am paying for a college grad, I want to see his/her records)

I think that I would require some previous employment records and I would probably be interested in his/her leadership qualities. How well did your Cub Scout troop work out ???? When you managed your first small business, were you promoted, did the business succeed, would your employer recommend you to your future employer??

Why does my prospective employee have more than one social security number...??? Can I, please, see your Selective Service records??

When you were very young, you traveled to countries that the U.S. did not approve of...why and how??

You are the child of a single parent without a significant income. How did you get to college, particularily the esteemed institutions that you CLAIM to have attended.

You claim to be Christian....your Baptismal certificate is where?

I would like to see these items Long before I need to see Romney's tax returns...(like a person in his shoes would cheat) and if he didn't cheat, who the hell cares what they say???

I should remind you that a huge fraction of the people passing away from the 1970's on often died from the effects of smoking WAY too many cigarettes. Remember, during World War II, the tobacco companies gave away a HUGE amount of unfiltered cigarettes to members of our armed forces around the world or sold them at very cheap prices at overseas bases, and as such got the entire World War II generation hooked on cigarettes after this war ended.

No, Romney needs to ask for everything BUT the birth certificate. He needs to scrupulously avoid asking for that, otherwise team Obama will focus on just that and use the 'crazy birthers' line to deflect the whole argument.

I am a birther, but I agree with you. This is not the way to bring Obama to justice for being a usurper. He is trying to bait Romney to talk about his BC because any talk about Obama not being a natural born citizen has, by the MSM, successfully been turned into a charge of being a tin foil lunatic.

Ask for all documentation at this time, except the BC.

Any records released by Obama will be doctored to include what he wants us to see only. There is a reason he has thus far refused to release these records.

The dope sticks his head out for a semi-annual press conference during a GOP backfire. The press grovels, fawns, flirts... pathetic.

Obama is the result of an ignorant, disengaged public who allowed (allows) themselves to be told what to think and how to act by a fully Left wing compliant media.

We have the government we deserve.

Doesn’t he also have some massive scars on his leg also? I don’t believe he’s explained how he got them.
