(Associated Posers)- LONG ISLAND, New York Mitt Romney showed up on time at an Obama campaign rally held at Hoefstra University. Obama sycophant Candy Crowley led the so-called debate in as pro-Obama manner as possible, filling in for the role of his missing TelePrompTer.
At one point Republican candidate Mitt Romney accused the President of taking almost two weeks before he called the attack in Benghazi, Libya a terrorist attack. Obama and the moderator said this was not true. Get the transcript Obama said, in what was almost surely a scripted move, because Candy Crowley just happened to have one, although from a faulty source- the administration.
On Que Michele Obama led the applause for the President from the undecided audience that was later revealed to almost all be Obama 2008 voters. The problem was that Romney was correct, but Crowley only admitted this after the program when tens of millions of eyeballs were no longer watching.
Even with the deck stacked against Mitt Romney and being inundated with so many falsehoods that he couldn't challenge all of them, he still managed to virtually tie the President according to insta-polls from the TV networks. On the economy NBC gave Romney the win by a 54-40 margin. President Obama continued to argue that people were doing better than they were four years ago, contrary to all evidence.
The so-called moderator Candy Crowley interrupted Mitt Romney 28 times and President Obama only 8 times, usually to helpfully offer liberal talking points.
CBS Instapolls said Obama narrowly "won" overall, but on the issues it came out as... Economy: Romney wins 58-40% Health care: Romney wins 49-46%. Taxes: Romney wins 51-44%. Deficit: Romney wins 49-36%. Strong leader: Romney wins 49-46%.
No, the audience already had them.
Completely predictable outcome.
Here’s all we need to know. When Crowly interjected with her false Libya statement, a good portion of the crowd cheered. That tells you how ‘independent’ the town hall participants were.
Michele Obama led the cheers too
Yes it was. Romney might need to opt out of any more similar encounters.
He should also keep pointing out that Class Warfare is fundamentally unAmerican; that most of the Founding Fathers, who we honor (we being the rooted American population, not Obama) would fall in the 1% category that Obama continually scape-goats. Because Obama really hates the American tradition, this would have Obama internally steaming, and greatly interfere with his ability to be the effective demagogue, that won election in 2008.
The blame for the debacle rests with the Republican Party leadership. The collusion we witnessed between the moderator and the DNC may have been criminal—but should have been completely anticipated.
Miss Candy already had her Obamaphone; in her pocket with the buzzer on. - As Rush said yesterday, if Obama didn’t do anything last night but show up breathing, he would still be declared the winner.
Next debate, Romney has to bring up a couple issues:
1. USA credit downgrade twice since this president took office. first credit downgrade in our history.
2. Obama missing more than 60% of his security briefings.
“CBS Instapolls said Obama narrowly “won” overall, but on the issues it came out as...
Economy: Romney wins 58-40%
Health care: Romney wins 49-46%
Taxes: Romney wins 51-44%. Deficit: Romney wins 49-36% Strong leader: Romney wins 49-46%”
Romney wins on the most important issues that are top on everyone’s minds - so how exactly did “0bama narrowly win” ?
I think Obama telling her to “get the transcript” wasn’t quite scripted. I think he tipped his hand, that they’d pre-arranged that. I can’t believe he was told to be that obvious. He just couldn’t help himself, and jumped in with that without even thinking how it would look. Sadly the kneepad press aren’t going to follow it up.
That was just such an obvious plant - what are the chances that she would:
a) Have the correct "transcript", and
b) Obama would know that she had it.
Agree—both are damning points. Romney did a great job of blowing Obama up regarding the economy though. Let’s hope Bob Schieffer doesn’t collude with the DNC the way Crowley did.
