You hit GOLD here.
I haven’t looked but in these debates the next questioner is usually handed and holding a microphone. Was this Kerry guy already holding it?
Please assist. Backtrack to my points, then to top of thread, then circulate to highest level people you can find. This is a probable exposure of a serious scandal in the second debate. Thanks bro.
Only problem with this is that Mitt looks over at Kerry also, right when O does......but we noticed early on in the debate Kandy referred to Romney as Romley. Anyone else catch this?
It made the transcript (so far):
MS. CROWLEY: — I want you to talk to Carey Ladka (ph), who wants to switch the topic for us.
THE PRESIDENT: Okay. Hi, Carey.
Q: Good evening, Mr. President.
THE PRESIDENT: I’m sorry, what’s your name?
Q: It’s Carey. Carey Ladka (ph).
THE PRESIDENT: Great to see you, Carey.
He walked in his direction, looked right at him, and said hi kerry, then looked around to cover his mistake and asked what his name was again.
Just why do people contribute to the RNC, if we have to watch our guy be broad-sided every single effing debate? So basically there weren’t any legitimate questions? I know the first chick forgot the fifth part of her question, had to pull the notes from her pocket and read it ( she identified it as being the most important one to her.) Then we have the code pink babe who thinks with her parts rather than smarts. Benghazi n F&F were losers because bama-mama saved him. Really, was their one beneficial question for Romney?
This would disprove the scandal. Crowley would have mentioned the name before Obama. We need Obama showing knowledge of the name before anyone else. Do we have that?
To play devil’s advocate (literally? lol), an argument could be made that Candy appeared to motion her head to her left (essentially indicating “over thatta way)” as she began to introduce the new questioner. Obama then started over to that side, yet when Kerry hesitated in getting up (perhaps not sure when he was supposed to so) Obama started looking around to see if he had misunderstood where the question was supposed to be coming from.
bump for later.
If Carey was already holding the mike thus causing Obama to look in his direction, then why did Obama then look away from him and around to the other nearby members?
Very interesting how Obama walks over to Kerry’s section before Kerry stands up. I didn’t catch that while watching it, so good eye to the original blog poster. I believe many of the debate questions were hostile to Romney (especially the Bush one), but he handled them well.
Sorry, I don’t believe this. I watched it twice. What I saw was CC do a “tell” instead. When she started talking about “here’s Kerry with a question” or whatever she said, she first gestured with her hand toward Kerry, then nodded in Kerry’s direction. Obama naturally turned in that direction, said “hi, Kerry,” then did a double-take, obviously looking for a woman named Kerry (the same thing I did when I watched the debate originally). And then a *guy* introduced himself as Kerry, and they went on. I do *not* think Obama knew Kerry beforehand, judging from that bit of video.
However, the issue of WHY IN THE WORLD CC happened to have the EXACT RIGHT piece of paper in hand to “prove” Obama’s claim that he had called the Benghazi affair “terror” in his Rose Garden speech IS very weird, and even, I might say, suspicious. I sure would like to have THAT looked at in depth.
How did Obama know Crowley had the Rose Garden Benghazi transcript right in front of herÉ
To be more precise: when Candy looked to the left, Obama seemingly followed her lead and started walking in that direction.
-— . then, rut roh, . after an internal psyche trigger kicked in, President Obama does the ((oops)) *looks around* as if to say where am I going then asks whats your name? ——
Whoa Nelly! < /Keith Jackson voice>
*That* showed some coordiantion between CC and Obama Camp.
But the ‘hi kerry’ from Obama in the clip, by itself, is not indictive of a set up of Kerry Ladka. [For all we know, it could be CC already gave Obama the questions beforehand.]
The physical movement I can’t explain. I’m just saying we shouldn’t be too obsessed with seeing something that may not be there ....
What we need at a minimum is to view this event from some different camera angles.
My first thought on the night of the debate was that Obama heard the name Kerry, thought he was going to be dealing with a female questioner, and right away said in his little cute voice, “Hi, Kerry.” It was only when Mr. Ladka stood up that Prezzy was all, “wow, you’re a dude.” At the time, I thought it would become a lasting and classic oops moment for him.

They did as well as they could withg what little IQ there was to work with.
