During an appearance on the radio show of Fox News’ Alan Colmes, prominent tea party leader Tom Tancredo made it clear he believes President Obama may not be an American citizen, Think Progress reported.
The former GOP congressman responded to questions about a statement he gave to a group of tea partiers: “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?”
Later in the interview, Tancredo suggested the Obama administration will not release the president's birth certificate as a ploy to cast tea partiers in a negative light.
TANCREDO: Now they very well not want to show it because they want to propagate this whole thing that’s going on about birthers. … They may be doing it for that reason; I don’t know why they don’t want anyone to see it. … They want it propagated because you know –
COLMES: It makes your party look nuts!
TANCREDO: Yeah well maybe that’s why they don’t produce document, I don’t know.

Just because one guy believes it doesn't mean all the members believe it.
I don't believe it is true, but you have to admit the hospital in Hawaii says they have it and they have seen it, but they won't show it is a little weird.
If Obama truly wants this mess behind him then all he has to do is sign a release of information, open the vault, take out the paper and have a press conferance.
Hold that piece of paper in front of him and say "here it is, shut up about it and move on".
I believe this is just a tool used by the left to paint those who believe this as racist republicans and they don't see any reason why they should put this thing to rest. Its a powerful tool for them.
