Obama tells Candy Crowley ‘get the transcript’ –she reads from transcript during debate
FireAndreaMitchell ^ | October 17, 2012

Posted on 10/18/2012 7:54:19 AM PDT by opentalk

Watch again the exchange between Mitt Romney and Obama during the last debate when the issue of Benghazigate came up.

Listen to how Obama tells Candy Crowley to ‘get the transcript’ after Romney asks Obama if he called the Benghazi terrorist attack an ‘act of terror’ in the rose garden before he popped off the Las Vegas for a fund raiser.

Like a good lapdog, Crowley retrieves the transcript to ‘correct’ Romney and protect Obama.

She later appeared on the CNN post debate recap to admit Mitt Romney was in fact right that Obama never referred to the actual terrorist attack in Bengahzi as an ‘act of terror.’

But this begs the question. Why did Candy Crowley have the transcript with her in the first place, and how did Obama know she had it on her? Something very fishy went on here.

BTW, speaking of ‘fact-checking’ why didn’t Crowley ‘fact-check’ Obama when he falsely claimed that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms to women? No transcript provided there Candy?

Obama chose the questions.
the applause was planned.
The Benghazi gotcha was a setup
The interruptions occurred after Obama said “Candy”
The transcript
The camera angles
EVERYTHING STAGED

This was collusion.

Someone needs to do some checking, WHY DID HE SAY GET THE TRANSCRIPT, and how did she just happened to have the transcript if this wasn’t a SET UP to smash Mitt.

I don’t like being lied to. What POTUS and Crowley said is a lie.

I wish Romney had said something like this:

You said ‘No acts of terror...’ you did not say: ‘This act of terror(ism)...’
With the 3 AM phone call you went back to sleep. Did you call the State Department, Secretary of State or go watch the live feed...? Did you open lines of communication with those responsible to you? No you did not, not according to the press reports - you waited for them to come to you and when they did not you want to pin the blame on them. Then you went on to a fundraiser.

You sent Ambassador Rice out to say the film was responsible. Had you not spoken to the State Department for 5 days? IF Rice and SoS Clinton went out, over the next week, without your permission or order we have a much bigger problem than blaming a film for the death of 4 Americans. The BUCK stops with you. Will you take responsibility?

That’s what I saw the other night, and wondered why it was not the headline of the evening. For me, it showed clear, premeditated collusion between the two.

Romney looked stunned, like his opponent had just asked the ref to deliver a rabbit punch, and she obliged.

To me, the dead giveaway of the set-up: when Obama said, “proceed, Governor.”

Obama knew at that instant that there was a good chance Romney would seize on the word “terror” and that Crowley was ready to assist.

Regrettable that Romney didn’t just move toward discussing Susan Rice, Jay Carney, The View etc.

Total set-up.

..interesting, at the beginning of the video when Obama mentions the Rose Garden...you can see Candy in the background quickly shuffling through her papers. Appears to be ready for the charade. Why have any papers. Her job is not fact checker.

This fraud is being pushed because of 65 million viewers, who will not see the corrections next day.

Let's be fair to that old Crow.

At least she threw a curve-ball question to Obama:

Since both you and President CARTER are DEMOCRATS, I fear a return to the policies of those years should you win this election. What is the biggest difference between you and JIMMY CARTER and how do you differentiate yourself from JIMMY CARTER?

I thought that was a fair question, didn't you?

What?

What do you mean I got it wrong?

Ohhhh......

Is there a reason this is not being discussed more, even in the conservative and non-mainstream media?

This was the most chilling and telling event of the debate, and blatant. And yet this is the first I’ve heard someone point it out.

Crickets. Why?

You are so right. On the camera angles, often when Romney was talking it went to a split screen, with Obummer looking attentive and leaning forward. When Obummer spoke you just saw a hazy image of Romney seated behind him. This debate was so staged and set up that I am sure a lot of “undecideds” will go Romney because they feel their intelligence has been insulted.

What I was suggesting is that Crowley was a pawn in a planned, meticulously produced charade. This was orchestrated down to the smallest detail—including the cutaway of Mooshell clapping. Even the camera angles were designed to place Obama in commanding positions relative to Romney. Crowley is a bit player in al of this.

And... I love how that old Crow told Romeny to sit down and STFU. (basically)

MS. CROWLEY: And we were. So quickly, Mr. President — if I could have you sit down, Governor Romney. Thank you.

(The governor meekly obliges, turns around and heads for his chair and sits down)

Not only did she have the transcript, but it must have had the sentence on terrorism highlighted for her to find it that fast in a couple of pages of transcript.

The convincing manner in which Obama lies is chilling.

It's called NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming.

Anyone can learn it. It is a very powerful communication tool. It can be used for good or evil - just like any other tool.

As much as I despise Obummer, I give him credit for taking the time and making the effort to learn NLP.

Re the “how are you not like Bush” lady. — Susan Katz was on NBC. She said she voted for Obama in 08, thinks he’s done a wonderful job and will definitely vote for him in ‘12.
One problem. During the debate, she was lumped into the group of questioners labeled as ‘Undecided.’

Exactly. This was not amateur hour. The whole thing was designed to make Romney stutter and look bewildered. And what do you think the followup ppieces in the WAPO and Slimes are saying? Exactly what was planted by this charade.

My bet is that Crowley had shared the audience questions with Obama and outlined to Obama how she would handle the rebuttals from Romney. Obama’s comment ...”proceed Candy”... was a dead give away he knew she had the transcript and he had the audience question in advance. Crowley’s performance was despicable and patently biased toward Obama. However it is interesting that this has now blown up in her and Obama’s faces. Did they not think for a minute that this would be seriously fact checked and they both be caught in a lie?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In a word: Axelrod.

David Axel-hole had met just a few days earlier with that old Crow to cooordinate pre-debate subjects between her and Obama.

Knowing that the “terrorist” issue might come up, Axel-wad provided her a copy of the Rose Garden transcript to use in aiding and assisting FUBO in a “Gotcha” momemnt.

It worked.

Never mind the fact that - now - days after the debate we know what happened, the damage at that time - was done.

The Scripted Setup?

It is a shame that we have become so suspicious of our media but it is not without good reason. As you read the transcript below from the Hofstra University Presidential debate moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley, as yourself if this was a scripted setup by the media and our President to bait Mitt Romney. It appears the words were chosen wisely by the President and Crowley just happened to have the transcript of his Rose Garden speech at her finger tips. Furthermore, pay attention to how the President says ‘get the transcript’ and note when the applause occurs.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:

CROWLEY: Because we’re — we’re closing in, I want to still get a lot of people in. I want to ask you something, Mr. President, and then have the governor just quickly.

Your secretary of state, as I’m sure you know, has said that she takes full responsibility for the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Does the buck stop with your secretary of state as far as what went on here?

OBAMA: Secretary Clinton has done an extraordinary job. But she works for me. I’m the president and I’m always responsible, and that’s why nobody’s more interested in finding out exactly what happened than I do.

The day after the attack, governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people in the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened. That this was an act of terror and I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime.

And then a few days later, I was there greeting the caskets coming into Andrews Air Force Base and grieving with the families.

And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the Secretary of State, our U.N. Ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as president, that’s not what I do as Commander in Chief.

CROWLEY: Governor, if you want to...

ROMNEY: Yes, I — I...

CROWLEY: ... quickly to this please.

ROMNEY: I — I think interesting the president just said something which — which is that on the day after the attack he went into the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror.

OBAMA: That’s what I said. (Stated with confidence)

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?

OBAMA: Please proceed governor. (Stated with a smile)

ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.

OBAMA: Get the transcript.

CROWLEY: It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. So let me — let me call it an act of terror... (She is looking at a transcript from the Rose Garden speech - really, what are the chances)

OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (This coming from a man who always travels with a TelePrompTer - it’s starting to seem a little scripted)

CROWLEY: He — he did call it an act of terror. (Loud applause from the rear of the auditorium - which included the press and the First Lady. Note that due to the applause, the next part of Crowley’s statement was not heard.) It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.

ROMNEY: This — the administration — the administration indicated this was a reaction to a video and was a spontaneous reaction.

CROWLEY: It did.

ROMNEY: It took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act by a terrorist group. And to suggest — am I incorrect in that regard, on Sunday, the — your secretary —

OBAMA: Candy? (The President is asking for help from the moderator)

ROMNEY: Excuse me. The ambassador of the United Nations went on the Sunday television shows and spoke about how —

OBAMA: Candy, I’m — (Again - the President is asking for help from the moderator)

ROMNEY: — this was a spontaneous —

CROWLEY: Mr. President, let me —

OBAMA: I’m happy to have a longer conversation —

CROWLEY: I know you —

OBAMA: — about foreign policy.

CROWLEY: Absolutely. But I want to — I want to move you on and also — (The moderator now changes the subject)

OBAMA: OK. I’m happy to do that, too.

CROWLEY: — the transcripts and —

OBAMA: I just want to make sure that —

CROWLEY: — figure out what we —

OBAMA: — all of these wonderful folks are going to have a chance to get some of their questions answered.

“Romney looked stunned”

When Barack Hussein Obama was elected, a Chicago politician said the American people would get an education in the crooked Chicago ways of doing politics.

I’m hoping voters got educated from that debate.

What is really amazing though is that even with CNN's Crowley and Obama working together in such a way - Romney still did very well, in fact, Obama got no real bump from their act of deception.

Obama is having to scale down his victory venues, his disapprovals are way low and even the democratic polls, which constantly overweight in favor of dems, are looking bad for Obama.

I'd say he has lost his "magic negro" status.

He has jumped the shark.
