Fox News, you have a problem. Your top political commentator is dug in over the Ruler’s birth certificate issue, and he won’t stop digging.

In Wednesday night’s viewer email segment on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly was asked how the Ruler could have a Connecticut Social Security card number when he had never lived the state. Buffo Bill said that “Obama’s father lived in Connecticut for several years, and sometimes the child gets the Social Security number based on the father’s address.”

The problem with Buffo Bill’s retort is that there is no evidence to support the claim that the Ruler’s father, who studied economics at Harvard in Massachusetts in the early 1960s, ever lived in Connecticut.

However, in an undocumented piece posted on the Yahoo blog “Associated Content,” Carol Bengle Gilbert wrote that “Barack Obama’s dad attended college in Connecticut and in 1977, Obama was college aged; is it beyond reason to consider that he might have checked out his father’s alma mater?”  

So it appears that Buffo used the baseless bilge pulled from a nondescript blog by one of his crack researchers to set the folks straight about the Ruler’s Connecticut Social Security number.

The credibility problem for Fox News is that Buffo Bill now has tripped over his forked tongue on two consecutive nights. On Tuesday, Buffo Bill told the folks that the Ruler’s birth certificate has not been made pubic, but Hawaii officials have it on file, which of course directly contradicts his November 2008 claim when he told a questioner that the Ruler’s birth certificate is legal because “We have a copy of it.”

What say you?  Is Buffo Bill a pinhead spin doctor or a bold fresh patriot lookin’ out for the folks?

Caution, be sure to check the sign post up ahead before entering the no spin zone next time.
