Skip to comments.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.
....one of the first thoughts that I ran through.......
I hope so. The GOP better do anything and everything to stop The Dream Act or it is over.
No source.....but Bump.....
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 they should have gotten a lot more for their troubles......
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”?
There is no way that this story has legs.....
Lol...The source is my brain.
If so . . it’s about freakin time
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.
...a good blackmailer never ever gets one thing for the bounty
Blackmail? Isn’t that racist?
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.
My thoughts exactly. They would be cheap dates considering what they gave away
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 would love it if they did... but this is the republicans we are talking about... they have not the brains nor balls to do this... no way.
That's all it is, a story.
Interesting conspiracy theory.
This isn’t News nor is it Activism. Behave.
“The source is my brain.”
If you know a good hacker, I bet he could find a State Department cable confirming this on the Wikileaks site.
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.
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...
If they did, they have him by the short hairs for the rest of his term!
Obama has already proved it for us. His parents are the reason he is not eligible. Place of birth does not matter.
Yeah... if they were gonna play that card they didn’t need to extend unemployment....
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.
Your supposition makes no sense whatsoever.
I do hope you are enjoying your retirement.
Simple logic. Corrupt courts trump logic.
I think it was the Illuminati.
Pssssst!...Better give it a rest!!
Except that it's his intel community.
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.
If they did, it’s because the don’t have the balls to use it even if thousands of American lives depended on it.
No, I don’t think so.
sorry..i cannot bite on this one
