|Steve Scmidt and wife Angela.|
This is what they relayed to me the other day:
After the airing of the movie "Game Change" Steve Schmidt's wife, a labor delivery nurse, expressed to certain Washington journalists her doubts about Sarah's story of Trig's birth, and revealed to them that she expressed the same doubts to her husband during the 2008 campaign.
Now just mull that over in your head for a little while.
This would mean that fairly early in the campaign Steve Schmidt would have had a very credible medical professional telling him that Sarah Palin's delivery story was simply not believable.
And do any of us doubt that if Angela Schmidt had bothered to do any research on the matter, and happened upon some of the babygate sites, that she would have similar doubts about the ENTIRE pregnancy? Yeah me either.
So if this information is credible, and I would be willing to bet that it is, then that would have made Schmidt's almost immediate "buyer's remorse" all that more understandable. He could not help but to have realized that he had a potentially explosive situation on his hands.
And just imagine how more convinced he was that she was lying about giving birth to Trig when after being asked by the campaign to produce a birth certificate to put the matter to rest (I have sources which say that did indeed happen), instead she proclaims that of course she is the mother because the only other possible birth mother is her daughter Bristol who was currently five months pregnant with her own baby.
I think that refusal to provide proof (At least to the campaign), and the totally bizarre note from her doctor, must have been more than enough to convince Schmidt that something smelled fishy, and it was more than the clothes the Palins brought with them from Alaska.
It ALSO means that "certain Washington journalists" have also heard that a medical professional with ties to the McCain campaign was very doubtful that Palin's story was credible. And that those doubts remain to this day.
So the question is, WHY is Schmidt still refusing to talk about this? Is it out of loyalty to John McCain? Is it out of embarrassment for how easily duped they all were by Wasilla's village idiot? Or is it something else?
I find it interesting that Schmidt's wife is a labor delivery nurse, because it was a labor and delivery nurse who first tipped ME off as well. I was just as ignorant of the deception as everybody else until I received an e-mail very late at night on the day she was picked, from a friend of mine, who is a nurse, telling me that there was NO way that Palin's pregnancy and birth story could have happened. NO way!
It was after I received that e-mail that I started to do the research, and do you know what? She was right!
Well I for one would like a journalist to actually ask Schmidt this question face to face. Schmidt can be evasive at times but I have to imagine that he would be unwilling to deny that his wife had these doubts if confronted.
