Matthews imagines ‘the hell’ Candy Crowley would have taken if she were wrong on Libya
The Daily Caller ^ | October 17, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 10/17/2012 4:22:59 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

On MSNBC’s post-debate wrap-up from Hempstead, N.Y., anchor and “Hardball” host Chris Matthews praised CNN’s Candy Crowley for making a charge that Republican nominee Mitt Romney was wrong in challenging the president’s “terror” description in his response to last month’s Benghazi, Libya attack.

And even thought Crowley later admitted Romney was “right in the main,” Matthews and his panel praised Crowley for her courage.

“Do you realize, Joy — you’re a woman here, let me tell you, do you realize the guts it took for Candy, even crystal in memory, knowing he had said ‘an act of terror,” Matthews said. “Knowing it was on her mind, that it had been in her notebook and that she had been there. If she had been wrong on that, the hell she would have taken from all of these media watchers from the right. I mean, unbelievable.”

Matthews’ panel, which included The Grio’s Joy Reid and the Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman, elaborated on why they thought the “Hardball” host was right on target with his observation.

REID: She is anyway.

MATTHEWS: What’s their case now? She was right.

REID: In the spin room afterwards, a lot of the complaining was about her.

MATTHEWS: Why?

REID: And people insisting she was wrong, but you know what she wasn’t wrong. She’s a reporter. That’s why it’s important to have a journalist in that situation. And it provided Romney’s I think most embarrassing moment of the night because he sat there. He leaned his chin out, he literally put his eyebrows up. And he was wrong.

FINEMAN: He thought he was moving in for the kill at that point.

MATTHEWS: And I think the president lured him in, so he said let’s move on. Let’s move on, like I really don’t want to test this moment.

Technically she was right, but she conceded the substance of Romney’s argument in her very next breath. But these debate circuses are all style over substance so the gotcha moment in Obama’s favor is all the general public will remember.

Not surprising that gets it 100% bass ackwards.

Mitt’s takeaway is great material for pressing the FACTS in evidence on Benghazi. And FACTS are troublesome things for liars.

To me, his first utterance of the words “act(s)of terror” followed by a long diatribe about condemning freedom of expression missused to attack a perfectly harmless religion isn’t recognition that the attack was planned by terrorists for reasons completely different than that BS little movie no one has seen. Because ‘terror’ was mentioned in no way technically translates to ‘terrorists’ with a planned agenda.

Crowley was wrong when she 'corrected' Romney. During the Rose Garden talk, Great Leader used the phrase, 'act of terror' exactly one time and it was to the effect that 'no act of terror would' and never specifically called the murder of the four Americans a terrorist attack. And then he flew off to Vegas to make some money. Romney was right. Candy is a b-eye-itch.

The other two times, I saw, she skewed heavily to the left (and for a woman of her girth, skewing heavily seems to come easy) was when she gave up the 'how are you different than Bush' question, and then how she put the pedal to the floor and got Romney off of fast & furious as fast as humanly possible - veering into 'oh, so you would be for an AK-47 ban if...' territory.

This “dust-up” will keep Libya/the cover-up by the administration of why 4 Americans were murdered, in the news. The Matthews and Crowleys of state media [snug as bugs in bed with the Obama-Biden racist-socialist agenda] will sink even deeper into the world of lies and deception, trying in vain to hold on to those voters who are now stampeding to Romney-Ryan.

I think the mention of terror in the Rose Garden was just a fortuitous insertion by Obama overwhelmed by his broader words and deeds. But Romney made a tactical mistake by emphasizing a relatively narrow verbal point over the broader substance of the issue. The sad thing is that the superficial debate theatrics arising from this error is going to hinder any further needed discussion on this issue.

Why does the “Party of Stupid” always agree to the most liberal moderators to host the debates. Then we wonder why they tag team the conservative speaker. Crowley was way out of line with her well timed interruptions not to mention her poor performance as a fact checker and debate timer. Bamby got over 3 minutes more time to invent his facts.

This is true. However, Candy Crowley did not escape unscathed either in this and had to walk back her impudent interruption. On balance, while Romney attacked too narrowly, multiple days of rehashing this argument gives his side the opportunity to back up further discussions about his with the constant lock-step wag-the-dog accusation that this planned terrorist attack was not due to an unforseeable movie, but due to utter incompetence within the Executive Branch and State Department.

Actually, the "hell" was what Matthews and his ilk gave to Jim Lehrer, and Candy Crowley knew full well that her colleagues would ensure that there be no downside to her assisting Barack Obama. In their - and that lovely group of "undecideds" at Hofstra... HOFSTRA, for crying out loud - eyes, the only way Crowley could have been "wrong" on Libya would have been for her to not give cover for Obama's semantics, and she made certain of that.

Last night's format, venue and moderator facilitator was astoundingly detrimental to Mitt Romney (and in fairness, to any Republican), yet he was still able to do well. Nevertheless, the abject willingness to roll over for the opposition in setting up these "debates" has reached the point where Alan Simpson and John Danforth need to be sent to the political glue factory by the GOP.

You’re right — and I’m afraid the takeaway from this one will be a big plus for Obama. Our guys lost in that exchange, and like a real sports pro does after he makes a bad play, sometimes you just have to suck it up and let it go.

This will cost Romney points in the polls.

If Obama said it was an act of terrorism from the beginning, why did he and Hillary spend $70,000 on an “apology” video to Muslims, and had an American citizen arrested for this video? Then sending Jay Carney, Susan Rice, and Hillary to lie for him. I just wish Romney mentioned the 70K apology video and asked when the American people are going to be reimbursed for it.

As ‘moderator’, it was not her place to take one side or another in any kind of difference of interpretation, or anything else either.

It was wrong for her to come down one way or another on it. I can't believe there is any perception of proper conduct on her part.

So now how is saying he did call it an act if terror the first morning?

1 then what was the video tape story all about? And

2 why would you then run off to Las Vegas for a fund raiser rather than gathering the security council?

he digs his hole deeper and Candy handed him a better shovel.

you got that right and nail on the head.

One woman asking about pa.
Another woman asking about AK47’s
But the trump of them all is when the woman stood up and said she is not happy with the last 4 years but blames it on overseas and Bush. How was Romney different from Bush because he;s a republican, you'd think Bush was a demon from hell or something the way she spoke,
WTH was that about, , these questions were pathetic, Crowley got it wrong, she picked the wrong questions and her bias was out there for all to see and she got bullied by obama just like Biden bullied his way through his debate.

You also got it right about when Romney was making a point about Fast and furious, as soon as Romney tried to talk about this she cut him off but let obama talk and talk and talk and talk and talk.

Romney killed the Marxist on the economy and deficits. Libya is down the list of issues that matter to the mushy undecideds. But there is no way Obama can “win” on this issue, as the facts are the facts. An ambassador is DEAD, and Obama and his sociopathic minions all lied. Further, the next debate is all foreign policy, and Romney (hopefully) will set the record straight in very clear terms:

1. Security was asked for.
2. It was not received.
3. An ambassador and 3 others were brutally killed.
4. You blamed a video. Your minions blamed a video. On TV and to the UN.
5. Against all evidence that was in your hands you never called it a terrorist attack until weeks later.
6. Your foreign policy is based on illusion and deception, and fails to recognize the realities of the world. Al Qaeda and its derivatives are quite alive and well.

The administration (AND “O”) was NEVER clear or consistent in their response to this.

It is typical of the way “O” has handled EVERYTHING.

He is so disinclined to the idea of personal responsibility, so unqualified at decision-making and incapable of commitment that his responses ALWAYS take on this imprecise, ill-defined and ambiguous character.

It is INVARIABLY the way he responds to a challenge or a question!! I have had enough of this and it’s time for a straight forward leadership!

like half of those women asking questions were undecided, like those questions picked by Crowlet was not bias and like having it up in NY was nto going to be bias and like Crowley not letting the public hear about fast and furious or even Romney talking about Libya etc.

The whole thing was a farce.\\First Biden bullies and now obama bullies the mod and now my local news is saying that Crowlet said read the transcirpt as he said it.
course no mention from the local news that he did not say it, Crowlet got it wrong or even how he kept saying this was a you tube video.

We might as well have Levin moderate, down in so called un decideds in SC, or even MS,AL, OK

Excellent summary.

This will be the line of rebuttal from Mitt.

That coupled with “ flexibility comment” and relating F&F to foreign relations
will put O where he belongs.

He’ll bob and weave, put out some lines assisted by the moderator, but the
thinking public will see right through it.

Google search www.whitehouse.gov / Benghazi

On each item, like speeches before the coffins, order to lower flags to half mast, etc., the word "terror" (or "terrorism") only appears in that one generic statement made from the Rose Garden - and I don;t think Obama wants to say that he jumped to the conclusion it was terrorism, when the administration line was that investigation had to be done.

Crowley was wrong but the press is carrying her water.

CURL: Crowley skews hard for Obama in disastrous debate..............

By then, Mr. Romney had had enough, and talked over her demands. “No, let — let — let me go back and speak to the points the president made and — and — and let’s get them correct.”

At the next question, the moderator lost all control. “Candy,” Mr. Obama said. “Hold on.” “Mr. President,” the governor said, “I’m still speaking.” They mixed it up for a bit, then Ms. Crowley said: “Sit down, Mr. Romney.”

The most shocking exchange took place on the Benghazi attack that left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others dead.

Mr. Romney: “You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror? It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you’re saying.”

Mr. Obama made no defense. “Please proceed, governor.”

“I want to make sure,” Mr. Romney said. “Get the transcript,” the president said. Then Ms. Crowley jumped in to do her own fact-check, on the spot. “It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. … He did call it an act of terror.”

The truth is, he didn’t. The day after the attack, he said only this: “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.” It took another two weeks before the White House would label the attack an act of terror........"

I hope and pray you’re right. I really, sincerely do. But, I think the Benghazi moment was extremely destructive. Obama and Crowley played it to the hilt — and in doing so prevented Romney from exploiting the issue as he could and, I believe, would have. Obama is now off the hook on Benghazi — and Mitt looked like he was misinformed.

As to the lies, you are absolutely right: Obama lied like a rug. The problem is, he did so with sufficient panache that to the average viewer his lies looked plausible.

In boxing terms, the debate was a split decision. And in split decisions, the match is awarded to the reigning champion.

That said, remember that in Rocky I, Rocky won just by being on his feet at the end. Could be, that’s all that Mitt needed from this one.

Truth is meaningless to Hissy Matthews. He’s been saying for two weeks that unemployment was ten percent when Bush left office. The truth is that it was a less than seven percent at the time, but Tingles just keeps doubling down on the wrong figure because he knows the ignorant proletariat that is his audience will believe it. Thankfully they’re a very small bunch.

That’s good news. I’m glad to hear it. Hopefully, the whole Obama-Crowley ambush (and I firmly believe it was a set-up) will redound to Mitt’s favor. The RNC needs to flood airways with ads emphasizing Obama’s lack of leadership in the whole Benghazi tragedy.

Wait till the polling comes in post debate...if it’s anything like the focus group Frank Luntz interviewed yesterday from Nevada (all former Obama 2008 voters), Obama’s toast.

Because it signaled that 75% of the Obama voters now considering themselves independent are going to vote for Romney.

One lady said it was not undecided whether to vote for Obama or vote for Romney, she was previously undecided about whether actually going to go vote for Romney rather than not casting a vote.

The fact that John Candy Crowley even came to Obama’s defense is the bigger story.

She certainly didn’t do the same for Romney when Obama lied his ass off about his energy “facts and figures”. I mean, c’mon, Obama has created coal jobs? That alone was a squealer.

“This will cost Romney points in the polls.”

Just the opposite friend...look at the polls conducted just afterwards on MSNBC and even on CNN...all admitted he won on substance and the ONLY mistake Romney made in the debate was to ask questions of Obama.

On the other hand Obama’s ONLY mistake was discussing his record...publicly.
