I must educate Mr. Reilly about the birth certificate of President Barack Obama, born in Hawaii. First off, the tea party group as a whole, has done nothing to make America a better nation. Instead they have spent their every waking hour trying to prove something even the Supreme Court doesn’t believe and that’s the lies spread by the so-called “birthers,” about President Obama and his birth location. The SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) has on at least four separate occasions declined to hear any of the non-sense about President Barack Obama. Now that to me is very telling. If the SCOTUS, which we all know is VERY conservative refuses to hear this challenge even with a member of the teaparty sitting on the bench (Clarence Thomas’ wife is a tea party member, so he must be,) then its time to stopping wasting the courts time and focus on the real challenges facing America.
