Bachman's comment came up as Katz was interviewing her about several significant issues developing in Washington, including Rep. Peter King's hearings on radical Islam in the U.S. and the trillion-dollar expenditures the country will face because of Obama's health-care reform law.
Bachmann said while she hasn't made a decision on a 2012 bid for the White House, she is visiting New Hampshire, which has the nation's earliest primaries.
She said the hearings scheduled by King address the obvious "common thread" in terror cases targeting the U.S. and its residents recently.
"We know there's a common thread. Why not look into it?" she said.
Muslim interests have accused King of "McCarthyism" for wanting to explore how and why radical Muslims are recruiting young Americans. King has cited, among others, the Fort Hood attack, the recent killing of a U.S. soldier in Germany and the suspect arrested in Texas who reportedly gathered bomb materials and carried a list of targets in Colorado and California.
The most important part of this column is actually an embedded audio player that plays the interview Jeff Katz had with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). The interview covers several topics, including Rep. Peter King's hearings on domestic terrorists recruiting, and ObamaCare. As you will know from reading this story from WND, one part of the discussion being about the fact that Jeff's kid had to provide more documentation to play little league baseball than Barack Hussein Obama (if that is his real name) had to provide to become President of the United States. That is when Rep. Bachmann assured Jeff that the first thing she would do, if she runs for President, is to provide her long-form birth certificate.
It is a great interview, and it isn't real long, so be sure to listen to it!

If Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., decides to pursue a presidential bid in 2012, it could offer some interesting debate moments now that she's promised that the first thing she would do is offer the public a view of her birth certificate.
Rep. MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MN)
"I'll tell you one thing, if I was ever to run for president of the United States, I think the first thing I would do in the first debate is offer my birth certificate so we can get that off the table," she told radio personality Jeff Katz on Boston's Talk 1200 Radio Station.
WND has reported since before Barack Obama's 2008 election on questions and lawsuits over his eligibility under the Constitution's requirement that the president be a "natural born Citizen."
In the last few weeks a campaign has sprung up among state lawmakers to adopt legislation that would require presidential candidates to provide proof of their eligibility. So far, the issue has been considered in 13 states.
