Is this for real?

From NewsMax.com
"Kerry: Bush Still Hiding His Guard Records
Though he has yet to fulfill his promise to 'Meet the Press' host Tim Russert 12 days ago to sign Pentagon Form 180 releasing all his military records, Sen. John Kerry complained this week that President Bush is withholding fitness reports from his days in the National Guard.

'All of my medical records and all of my fitness reports, every fitness report involving each place I served, is public,' he insisted to the Boston Globe in little-noticed comments last Sunday.

'Where are George Bush's still? Where are his military records?' Kerry demanded.
The failed presidential candidate continued to maintain that all his records had been released, telling the Globe, 'Let me make this clear: My full military record has been made public.'
The paper didn't press him on a Washington Post report last year, which revealed that more than 90 pages of his own file can't be released until he signs Form 180. The Globe asked only if he would sign it.
Kerry said that he would, and repeated the promise to radio host Don Imus on Monday.
Four days later, there's still no report that Kerry has signed the release."

What records could Kerry be referring to? Bush signed Standard Form 180 authorizing the release of all of his military records quite some time ago while Kerry has refused to do the same. Maybe Kerry has been hanging around too much with Dan Rather who is also still looking for the "real" guard records.

What a great title! Did they really interview John Kerry on Meet the Press recently?! Why? Who cares?? It's outrageous that he's still getting a pass on the non-release of all of his service records but, to my mind, even more outrageous that that's even considered newsworthy. Boortz had a link to a New Yorker (I think) article the other day where the MSM was lamenting the idea that most people don't trust them or care what they are saying anymore. This kind of "reporting" on Meet the Press is why!
