The New York Times seems miffed that Barack Obama didn’t release his full medical records–just a one page doctor’s letter missing key answers to obvious questions.(e.g. How much did he smoke and has he really quit?) It seems downright odd that he wouldn’t have released all his medical records. After all, the old guy with a history of cancer put it all out there. Why all the cloak and dagger?
The Clintons perfected the art of making nondisclosure an end unto itself, a tactic that often seemed pointless and counterproductive. If there is not some deep dark secret in Obama’s medical records why conceal all of them from view? It makes as much sense as the Clintons sitting on their tax returns and the White House logs for a year.
One wonders if Obama learned the wrong lesson running against them.
