She seemed to have the transcript as if on queue
if not, a strange coincidence indeed!??? Obama saved by the girl?
I am not defending her actions -- I am saying that it is not necessarily an ambush pre-planned with Obama.
O’Reilly addressed that in answering a letter last night. He said that Crowley picked the questions, that she would have the transcript, and that it was no big deal.
Personally, I don’t think so at all. O’Reilly’s take is ridiculous.
First, the question was “who approved the removal of the security detail?” Is it possible that question would generate recrimination over when Benghazi was first called a terrorist act? Maybe, but not certainly. Would that cause Crowley to bring a transcript of a speech from Sep 12? I doubt it, and not even if she had a discussion with Axelrod on that subject.
BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY:
How did Obama know she had the transcript there?
Finally, in an interview with the dude who asked the question, he stated that he was undecided, but that he did not want obamacare to end, that the nation needed national health care. Then he tossed in a few lines about Romney’s business acumen appealing to him.
He’s no more an undecided than Mooch.
My understanding is that Candy interviewed Axelrod on CNN a couple of days previously and he tried out this line on her at that time. She probably got the transcript then to see what was said. So it is possible that it is not a coincidence.
It is very nice of you to give them the benefit of the doubt but of ALL the Libya statements made by ALL the people in the administration she just happened to have the one in question (in her hand)?
HE GOT HILLARY AGAIN...(You are not President...hahaha....I am....I won....)
At least it's a big girl.
The entire debate was tigged: the interruptions “every time Obama said, “Candy”), staged theatrics, selected questions favoring Obama, the transcript and the Benghazi gotcha. What we witnessed was collusion and corruption o the political process. Chicago politics center state: COLLUSION: CRIMINALITY.
Candy Cowpatty was unprofessiional at best. She should be fired or at the very least demoted to a off air office job.
Otherwise, I would not be shock if it was discovered that Candy Cowpattey and King 0bama Coordinated the whole debate as much as possible via e-mail.
If Obozo “knew” she had the transcript - can one assume he “knew” what questions were going to be asked? I read somewhere that only the moderator and her staff knew what questions were going to be asked. I’m betting she gave Obozo the list.
When Mitt brought up Fast and Furious Obama says Candy?. Immediately she interrupts Mitt and tells him to stop talking about it.
I wondered if anyone else noticed that. He was like a little boy calling for mommy to stop the meanie from calling him names. She stepped right in like a doting mother. This whole debate was a sham and shows how bad Obama really is. He still looks bad even with the entire media covering for him. He still can’t pull it off. Romney looked presidential inspite of overwhelming odds; he will need that ability in the coming years if he is to turn this mess around.
The "interpretation" by Axelrod of the President's Rose Garden statement was new. The administration changed their story and it it happened just before the debate, so it was fresh in her mind.
I just watched the exchange. Crowley named the questioner just before Obama said "Hi, Kerry."
Absolutely noticed it. I was so glad to hear Obamas response to the AK47, knew this would be Romney’s chance. She interrupted R and then O said, lets move on, people waiting with other questions. (something like that)
Boy, you are right. Not one pro-Obama comment, and this fron SF...
Clearly a gotcha trap. Straight from Chicago, you can bank on that.
What I am saying is that she heard the White House spin argument, looked up the transcript, bought into it, and then brought the thing to the debate on her anticipation that this issue would be raised
How did HE know she had the transcript? That’s why people suspect collusion. Too many questions.
Does the cow crap in the field?
Not only that but Obama then told Candy to say it louder, as if this was his chance to use that quote:
OBAMA: Get the transcript.
CROWLEY: It it it he did in fact, sir. So let me let me call it an act of terror
OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?
Ah....makes more sense. So this was a setup, whether it was Axelrod laying the groundwork to a moderator/supporter who desperately wanted to believe in the “won” or out-right collusion. The fact that obama said, “Get the transcript,” proves it. Whether he knew Can-D would have the transcript or would jump in to defend him, he knew the transcript used that phrase, “act of terror”, even though its meaning had nothing to do with what he was trying to imply.
Axelrod/obama - SLEAZY.
Crowley did say the question was from Kerry Latka just before Obama says “Hi Kerry”, but you are right, he did walk straight towards him before seeming to realize that was a giveaway and deciding to scan the audience.
Obama got in his "lie" and she got carried away.
Wish we had a camera on her through the whole thing.
