Crowley Helping Obama on Libya?

.

Moderator Crowley became focus of debate when talked turned to Libya

Charlie Neibergall/Associated Press - Moderator Candy Crowley talks to the audience before the second presidential debate at Hofstra University, Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012, in Hempstead, N.Y.






By Associated Press, Published: October 16 | Updated: Wednesday, October 17, 1:17 AMAP

NEW YORK — Candy Crowley’s signature moment as moderator of Tuesday’s rough-and-tumble presidential debate came when she was called upon to referee a dispute over President Barack Obama’s description of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya as an act of terror.
When Republican Mitt Romney questioned whether the president had done so, Crowley said, “He did, in fact, sir.”


Can you say that a little louder, Candy?” Obama said, as the debate’s audience broke into applause.





Similarly, there was applause when Crowley suggested that it also took others in the administration as much as two weeks to abandon the idea that the attacks were related to protests over an anti-Islam video.
I was trying to bring some kind of clarity to the situation,” Crowley said later.

She's just stating facts. Too bad Rmoney forgot to bring the facts.

One would think the focus of this issue was how wrong Rmoney got his facts? But hey, let's make it about the moderator.

LOL. I provide exactly what was said and how it happened. You, on the other hand say what you want it to be. Even Crowley later admitted..she was wrong. Will you?



Mitt Romney Debates President Obama And Candy Crowley
Political Realities ^| 10/17/12 | LD Jackson

It's really hard for any political candidate to debate effectively when they are debating two opponents at the same time. That's what Mitt Romney had to do last night and he had his work cut out for him. I'm not convinced he completely pulled it off, but he gave it a good shot. Candy Crowley was clearly in the President's corner. It was never more obvious than in the exchange over Libya. The President told a bald-faced lie when he said he called the attack on our consulate an act of terror the day after it happened.He did no such thing and it seemed everyone in the building knew it, except for Candy Crowley.

During the speech Obama gave in the Rose Garden after the attacks, he did not call the attack in Libya an act of terror. In the following days and weeks, he and his surrogates were all over the news shows and in front of the United Nations, making sure everyone one knew it was that stupid video. How long did it take them to admit they were wrong about that? About three weeks. How long did it take them to admit they have been openly lying to the American people about what they knew and when they knew it? To my recollection, we are still waiting for that part of the truth to emerge from their mouths. When Mitt Romney tried to call him out on that lie, Crowley shut him down.

Some conservatives are claiming Romney failed to drive the point home, but what was he to do, tell the moderator to shut up and let him speak?
After the fact and during the aftermath of the debate, Candy Crowley admitted she was wrong and Mitt Romney was right. Too little, too late. About 60 million people watched as she took sides with the President on Libya and prevented Romney from making a completely valid point. The number of people who see her retraction is sure to be much smaller. That's what I mean when I say Mitt Romney was debating two opponents at the same time. It is also why I believe the Republican Party and any future presidential candidate should refuse to participate in future presidential debates, unless there are changes made to the process of selecting the moderators. Us allowing our candidates to be grilled and lectured by liberal moderators, with no chance of rebuttal, is just plain foolish.

You are confusing two different issues, just as Rmoney tried to do.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for,"



Besides, the label on the attack is irrelevant. What is terror anyways? Why is it 'terror' when the attack comes from the enemy? How will calling it terror bring back the dead?

It doesn't. Rmoney is a pompous jerk.
