Karl Rove: The Kenyan ‘Birth Certificate’ Is ‘Likely a Forgery’

President George W. Bush’s political strategist put up a tweet this morning that’s a reflection of both how much play the forged “Kenyan birth certificate” is getting, and how embarrassing it is for opponents of President Obama.

Michael Patrick Leahy, the conservative #TCOT and Tea Party activist who has been dogging reporters to cover the birth certificate “issue,” has a good, rather annoyed post about Orly Taitz’s reckless strategy of posting this bogus document on the Internet and asking courts to “validate it.”

Ms. Taitz is asking a Federal Judge to authorize a fishing expedition for documents pertaining to President Obama’s birth that might exist in the Governmental files of the Republic of Kenya, and she fails to offer any evidence as to the origin of the digital image upon which this request is based ? If I were the judge, that is the first of many questions I would ask Ms. Taitz when she comes before me next in court.

Several of the lawyers and activists who are following or pushing this story have grown irritated with Taitz’s incompetence and wild antics. This might be a breaking point.
