Candy Crowley admits Romney was right during the debate [VIDEO and FACTS] ^ | 10/19/2012 | netWMD Staff

Posted on 10/19/2012 9:38:25 PM PDT by forty_years

The truth is out there and the moderator of the second presidential debate, Candy Crowley, has grudgingly admitted that Mitt Romney was correct when he said President Obama did not call the Benghazi atrocity, in which a U.S. ambassador was raped, killed, and dragged through the streets, a "terrorist attack." Her admission is shown in a video. But let's look at the facts, first:

BS: President Obama said during the debate that, "The day after the [Libya] attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror."

TRUTH: CBS obtained Obama's Rose Garden transcript and conceded that, "It shows that the president did refer to 'acts of terror' -- but not specifically in reference to the Libya attack. Instead, he made a broader statement about American defiance." CBS also admitted, "The questions during Tuesday night's town hall debate, which were chosen by Crowley, more often than not played into the president's hands -- perhaps reflecting the fact that the town hall was held in a blue state. And Crowley's decision to side with the president over whether he had deemed the Libya attack an act of terror, when the reality was not so clear cut, was a misstep." Even more damning, while Obama spent weeks concentrating on some silly, amateurish video "upsetting" Muslims and trying to spin the savage murder of our ambassador, we know that, "Recently obtained memos show Ambassador Chris Stevens asked the State Department repeatedly for more security in Libya before he was killed in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi..."

I love how Candy Crowley just happened to have the transcript of the Rose Garden statement by Obama right at hand. Obama also new she had it as he asked her to check it. Now without really checking it she said Obama was right. I think this was planed if it came up.

Yes, very interesting isn’t it? I’d suggest an investigation but it would only prove what we already know.

A little too late of an admission from an Aleister Crowley look alike in a wig.

I’m reading on different outlets the following theory:

Obama left the US consulate in Libya unguarded on purpose knowing and planning with the Muslim Brotherhood in advance the kidnapping of our Ambassador. Following a big drama played out on TV, Obama was then going to step in and trade the ‘blind shiek (from the first World Trade Center Bombing)’ for the ambassador. It was the perfect October Suprise only Obama didn’t count on two brave security men stationed away from the embassy coming to the Ambassadors rescue and foiling the abduction and bravely dying along with the ambassador .

This makes perfect sense. Obama would have come out a hero on the international stage and coasted to victory in the election. Instead, it blew up right in his face and the whole administration has been in CYA mode ever sense...hence the fake video story. I bet the stress and the poop has really been hitting hard behind the scenes which also explains his poor debate performance in Denver. The video story was so much B.S. even his loyal political allies must have choked on this plan when he gave them their marching orders.

I’ll be honest, I have no idea if this is true or not but, my distrust of our current President is so deep I have to admit I don’t put this sort of thing past him. We’ll all have to wait and se if this comes out in the months ahead.

Is anyone out there hearing other stories about the real reason Obama went into ass covering mode on this issue?

Rather scary theory! Where did you hear/read that from?

The truth is that even though it seems so far fetched, I can actually believe it from this President. Wow! What does that say?

Yep, first get the wrong information out, and then correct it later after the damage is done. Nobody will be the wiser.

I’m trusting this is the reason the enemies’ plans are falling back on them :)


12 The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.
14 The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
16 Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
17 for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the LORD upholds the righteous.

The current occupant of the oval office deliberately refused to provide protection for the ambassador so as not to annoy 0’s co-religionists. The media is complicit in protecting him from the consequences of sacrificing the ambassador on the altar of political correctness.
