So Kerry, what are you trying to hide?
PAYBACK: NOW GOP WANTS KERRY TO SHOW ALL RECORDS
Tue Apr 20 2004 09:50:22 ET
After months of Dems haggling over President Bush's military records, the GOP now moves to demand full-disclosure from John Kerry!
The day after Kerry told MEET THE PRESS he would make all of his military records available for inspection at his campaign headquarters, a spokesman said the senator would not release any new documents, leaving undisclosed many of Kerry's evaluations by his Navy commanding officers, some medical records, and possibly other material.
Republican National Committee Chair Ed Gillespie is planning to deliver a speech later today calling on Kerry to make good on his promise to release all his records, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
[The Bush military records commotion intensified earlier this year after DNC Chair Terry McAuliffe challenged Bush to show records after Bush made a similar promise on MEET THE PRESS.]
Coming Gillespie in a speech to be delivered in Ohio:
"John Kerry's pattern of caveats, qualifications, disclaimers, policy reversals and vacillation are not the qualities voters are looking for in times of change that demand steady leadership.
"The Boston Globe reports today that when a reporter went to Kerry's headquarters yesterday to follow up on the pledge Kerry had made on Meet the Press Sunday that he would make all his military records available, 'the campaign staff declined' and said 'the only records available would be those already released to this newspaper.' The campaign is withholding formal evaluations from superior officers and other documents they have yet to release.
"Guess it depends on what your definition of the word 'all' is.
"When President Bush committed to release all his military records on the same program, he kept his word. John Kerry should do the same. Voters aren't stupid, and he shouldn't treat us as if we are."
ON HIS WIFE'S TAX RETURNS, HE HAS SAID 'NO'. ON HIS HEALTH RECORDS, HE HAS SAID 'NO'. ON HIS COMPREHENSIVE MILITARY RECORDS INCLUDING NAVAL RESERVE RECORDS, HE HAS SAID 'NO'...
