Eric Bolling And The Case Of The Time Traveling Doctor

Last night on Fox Business, Eric Bolling hosted Pamela Geller to discuss in all seriousness whether Obama's long-form birth certificate was “photoshopped.” Geller has been making a fool of herself over Obama's birth certificate for three years now, alleging that Obama's certificate of live birth was a “forgery” that previously belonged to a “female.” Nonetheless, Bolling apparently thought she was an important voice to include last night.

After pointing at a blown-up version of Obama's long-form certificate and discussing whether the borders were “Photoshopped,” Bolling concluded that “it may or may not be, but it certainly opens up the can of worms that there are at least questions.”

Here's an example of the kinds of “questions” Bolling now has. After noting that the doctor that signed the birth certificate had “passed away,” Bolling pointed out that the doctor's wife and son both were unaware that he had delivered President Obama. Bolling asked: “If you gave birth to the president of the United States, don't you think your family would know about it?”

The doctor died in 2003.

Let that sink in for a second.

At the time, Barack Obama was a little-known state senator in Illinois. If the doctor had told his family before he died that he delivered the future president, that would have spawned a much more interesting conspiracy theory (he's a wizard!). Apparently Eric Bolling thinks obstetricians give their families a list of the most interesting people they delivered -- with a special section for “potential future presidents” -- before they die.

Stop digging, Bolling. You're embarrassing yourself.
