Did Republicans Secretly Blackmail Obama About Eligibility To Extend Tax Cuts?

Posted on 12/08/2010 6:45:53 PM PST by Retired Intelligence Officer

Did the republicans secretly threaten Obama they would raise the eligibility question with him in order to get the Bush tax cuts extended? The president automatically did a about face to his democratic constituents and to the voters who looked up to him to 'Stick It To The Rich' so he could 'Spread The Wealth' as he said he would do on the campaign trail. There is a reason more sinister I feel on why he did this that has the democratic elite in D.C. up in arms. I personally think that the republicans (since they take over the house Jan 4th) pulled him in that meeting and gave him a ultimatum. I believe that they told him that they would go after him and expose his natural born citizen eligibility problem to the American masses and make him step down if he didn't comply and extend the tax cuts. It is a scenario that makes sense and it is something to really think about.

I doubt it. Unless he’s going to become totally leashed, why flash the nuclear option of eligibility over the first issue to come up?

If they did then they are slimeballs. If they have the goods on bambi they should run him out on a rail with it, not use it to negotiate.

But, I doubt seriously this story is true.

If so, then why did they accept any compromise, i.e., the extended unemployment benefits and the increase in “death tax”?

If it were true, why stop with the Tax Cuts? Use the Eligibility Investigation to invalidate EVERY Executive Order, EVERY Appointment (including the Supreme Court), EVERY piece of Legislation he signed, etc., etc.

There is no way that this story has legs.....

How did a trillion dollar spending bill become a win for the GOP?

TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY. CUT SPENDING. PROMOTE JOB GROWTH.

Did we accomplish ANY of these?

If Republicans had anything they could prove regarding Zer0’s eligibility they would play it. They don’t.

It doesn’t matter whether or not Obama is eligible, a communist or whaterve. If he were, the media would never report it.

I think Obama is pulling one on us.

If Democrats refuse to act on cancelling the scheduled tax increases, then nothing is done to cancel the tax increases -— TAXES GO UP ON JANUARY 1 and Obama gets what he really wants.

I’m calling this The Obama Gambit.

Maybe they will when they officially take over on Jan 4th when they can be in a position to have investigative committees.

It would be cool, if we had the spin to take over the puppet strings, but I doubt it.

He is trying to get re-elected, and he can't with a wrecked economy.

His only hope is to have conservative policies work enough to slightly improve the economy, get elected, then resume the destruction full throttle.

He is wicked.

The Repubs are complicit in Obama’s ineligibility. They knew all along, but there were questions about McCain’s birthplace, too, so they made a deal with the Devil. The Dems approved McCain, and Repubs ignored Obama’s vetting. Hillary thought she had the nomination sewed up. Repubs thought McCain could beat her. As a result, we all got screwed. Hillary lost her chance to be president. If they blow the whistle on Obama, they will have to admit their own guilt. That’s why many in the Tea Party think they should all be tossed out of Congress.

"why flash the nuclear option"

Because if he blinks, then there is something he is hiding.
The Repubs can renegade on this gentleman's agreement later due to it being a non binding agreement/contract. Contracts are void when a action is not legal...not being eligible for POTUS.

Don’t count on Repubs doing any investigations. They are as guilty as Dems. See #22.

I agree with you. I'm not buying this idea one iota. Obama is between a rock and a hard place right now and he is doing what he has to do for this time period. If you want to know exactly what is going on here, listen to Rush every morning and you will be enlightened on the whole scenario. A word from Rush is worth a thousand pictures.

I think they have something on him. There is no way in heck our intel community doesn’t know about Obama.

If anything, the pubs would let the rats hang him out to dry becuase at that point the media can no longer hide it.

The GOP isn't in charge yet so they have no authority over spending. But as of January 1 they will have the whole enchilada.

Why do you keep posting as though you think the Republicans are in charge? Did you work for the Obama Truth Squad or something?

If they were willing to play anything at all they could force the disclosure of the records via an investigation, and that would prove something, since the HDOH has already indirectly confirmed that they have no legally-valid birth certificate for Obama and the Factcheck COLB is a forgery.

We have to make them see that the country is in critical condition and this may be the resuscitation we need.

Doubt it. They would’ve done it before now. Unless they finally have some kind of proof. Problem is that they won’t do anything with it. And it’s a one-shot thing. If they don’t release it, they couldn’t blackmail him again, because they wouldn’t be able to go public later on without being accomplices in the matter. But what do I know? I just work for a living and pay taxes and vote for the other bozos...

Obama has already proved it for us. His parents are the reason he is not eligible. Place of birth does not matter.

Obama’s face turned red one two many times during the press conference. He was angry. Someone got something...but there are so many possibilities that the eligibility thing can be saved for last. Bohneur (?) is righteously indignant and he knows the troops are on the way. He’s playing for keeps, and he knows the tricks, because he’s been around. Obama has too many skeletons and his cover isn’t covering...

My money is on Bohneur—I have no idea how to spell his name—he’s out for redemption. I’m praying for his strength and resolve to not waver.

How could they blackmail him? It was no secret to any of them. They all received the fourteen page Congressional Research Office memo telling them how to fend off eligibility questions in April 2009. Also, every Senator signed Leahy’s SenRes 511 in Apr 2008 in which hearings Leahy agreed with Chertoff:
“My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen,” Chertoff replied. “That is mine, too,” said Leahy.”
They all knew and are all culpable. They will say nothing because they hope Obama will be defeated in 2012 and they won't pay the price for their perfidy. Some of us will remember. Vote everyone sitting in the legislature before Obama was elected out of office.
