This sounds about right. It makes perfect sense too. Thirteen states have legislation wanting candidates to prove they are natural born citizens in order to be on the presidential ballots for 2012 and beyond. It is a good idea so that we can have a fully qualified candidate that really is a natural born citizen. As far as the Obama constitutional eligibility issue is concerned, threats of withholding federal money from a vital Hawaii state government program are believed to be the major reason for Hawaii's state government's obstinate attitude toward multiple requests for release of Obama's birth and school records in the state's possession. This point should be made by the Republicans when ever the Democrats want to complain about cutting the Federal budget and Federal debt and explain how Obama can get away with withholding Federal money from states by holding them hostage because of the eligibility issue. Is Obama Bribing the States on Eligibility? « drkatesview Continuing to thwart the United States Constitution and the peoples will, the Obama-Jarrett administration appears to be bribing the states considering eligibility legislation. Already Georgia* and New Hampshires eligibility bills will be postponed to 2013, clearly to protect Obama. And although there are signs of improvement in the language of the Arizona bill, what do you want to bet that will be postponed too? The way the bribe is being set up only reinforces our own research that Congress is engaged in the cover up of the usurpation. The goal is to reduce or threaten federal funding for key infrastructure projects in those states that have eligibility bills. But in order to hide the extortion, the reductions in funding must appear to come from Congress, specifically the republicans in Congress. Whatever loophole is left the democrat-controlled Senate will fix. The bribing mechanism in place is to use sympathetic democrats who go along with republican budget cuts, only to have Jarrett use those cuts to extract compliance from of the state to delay eligibility legislation. This is the federal government extracting behavior out of the states by leveraging our tax dollars. It is power the Founders never wanted our federal government to have.
