BREAKING NO SPIN NEWS: Barack Spokesman Calls O'Reilly A Hypocrite For Demeaning Obama's Faith

During a New Hampshire visit to a Barack Obama rally, Fox News host, Bill O'Reilly, followed his "Don't block the shot" moment (and imminent t-shirt blurb), by asking the candidate if he would come on to his Factor show.  Obama told Bill he would consider it AFTER the primaries. 
While some might take putting off the visit until after the primaries as something of a snub, O'Reilly considered it a coup. That coup just might have run out of ammunition.
Just before last week's debate, O'Reilly said on his TV Factor that Obama goes to Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church for only one reason -  political expediency.
"Obama built his power by hanging around with the left.  That's why he was in Wright's church. He didn't care who Wright was, it helped him politically, so he hung there."
I asked Bucks County U.S. Congressman, Patrick Murphy, the House's first Iraq war veteran, who has been on the Obama team from the outset, to comment on O'Reilly's statement.
"I'm an Irish Catholic," said a smiling Murphy.  "O'Reilly's an Irish Catholic.  For him to think he knows why (Obama) goes to his church is hypocritical."
Asked whether Obama, after knowing that Bill had said that he uses his church for political convenience, will hold to his pledge to go on O'Reilly's show, Murphy  told me that I'd have to ask Obama. 
So, Barack, what say you?
