Does Obama Have Cancer? – Part II

October 30, 2008

On October 5, I asked the question “does Obama have cancer?”.

I was wondering why Barack Obama will not release his medical records. Here is a seemingly healthy man who is running for president, but will not tell us his medical history. John McCain has, and he has had cancer.

Obama smokes and has a much higher risk of cancer. I just have to wonder if he already has it…

Just asking.

Today, Ed Morrissey at Hot Air is barking up the same tree.  He is wondering where the complete medical history is of a presidential candidate who is a longtime smoker while the press is having fits for Sarah Palin’s records:

While ABC frets over the medical records of a non-smoking 44-year-old mother of five, where’s the concern over the smoker who’s running at the top of the Democratic ticket?  Why hasn’t the national media shown the slightest interest in Obama’s health records?

Good to know I think at least a little like Ed Morrissey…

    Below and attached is a letter from Senator Obama’s physician detailing a summary of his health records.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I am David L. Scheiner, a board certified general internist licensed to practice in the State of Illinois. I am on staff at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Rush University Medical Center. I have been Senator Barack Obama’s primary care physician since March 23, 1987. The following is a summary of his medical records for the past 21 years.

    During that period of time, Senator Obama has been in excellent health. He has been seen regularly for medical checkups and various minor problems such as upper respiratory infections, skin rashes and minor injuries.

    His family history is pertinent for his mother’s death from ovarian cancer and grandfather who died of prostate cancer. His own history included intermittent cigarette smoking. He has quit this practice on several occasions and is currently using Nicorette gum with success.

    Senator Obama’s last medical checkup was on January 15, 2007; he had no complaints. He exercised regularly often jogging three miles. His diet was balanced with good intake of roughage and fluids. A complete review of systems was unremarkable. On physical examination, his blood pressure was 90/60 and pulse 60/minute. His build was lean and muscular with no excess body fat. His physical examination was completely normal.

    Laboratory studies included triglycerides of 44(normal under 150), cholesterol 173 (normal under 200), HDL 68 (normal over 40), and LDL 96 (normal under 130). Chem 24, urinalysis and CBC were normal, PSA was 0.6, very good. An EKG was normal.

    In short, his examination showed him to be in excellent health. Senator Barack Obama is in overall good physical and mental health needed to maintain the resiliency required in the Office of President.

    David L. Scheiner, M.D.

    Since you double posted, so will I.

    A summary doesn’t cut it. McCain released something like 1200 pages and that still wasn’t enough for many people. I don’t see why he won’t release the full record.

    Oh, and his last check is now almost two years old.
