Comments always aligned at column 67 despite comment-column set otherwis

I am new to emacs and really love the customizability, but on one front I
have grown really confused and frustrated.  

All I would like to be able to do is set the comment column and then when I
press M-;, for a comment to appear at that column.  I am trying to do this
by setting the variable set-comment-column.  Seems simple enough, but no
matter where I set this value, the comment always appears at column 67. 

Furthermore, the M-; command is supposed to also realign existing comments,
but in that case, it moves the comments to a completely different column
(neither 67 nor what I set it to).

This problem is absolutely driving me crazy.  Please someone help.

I am mostly using emacs for c++ code, which I think is using cc-mode with
the gnu style, but it would be nice if I could configure this behavior also
for perl and bash code.
