Skip to comments.Moderator Role Under Scrutiny Before Debate (Crowley wants to interject into town hall debate)
Posted on 10/15/2012 6:01:39 AM PDT by mrs9x
In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how the moderator of the Tuesday town hall has publicly described her role, TIME has learned. While an early October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns suggests CNNs Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday-night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested she will assume a broader set of responsibilities. As Crowley put it last week, Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?

“Broader set of responsibilities” = tag-team Romney and throw lifelines to Obama.
Interject on behalf of obama? After Biden’s disrespectful performance at the last debate, I imagine Romney won’t be taking any crap from Candy or obama.
........In truth, this is exactly how the members of the media see these debates in their heads.
The best we can hope for is that the electorate now recognizes that the rabid, spittle-infused, gattling-gun approach to debate favored by liberals contains no truth.
Yo, Candy! NOBODY — with the possible exception of your mother — is tuning in to watch YOU. Get over yourself and let Obama go about making an ass of himself. Again.
Let's hope Romney can fashion a noose for one of those lifelines for Obozo, so Barackwards can hang himself again in public.......
ALL of them should be under scrutiny . . . why the hell the Stupid Party has anything to do with these 4 straight highly liberal commentators moderating a so-called debate is beyond me. What the hell is the matter with the Stupid Party?
Why don't they just say that until they have a 50-50 participation (perhaps with Rush, Hannity, Levin, Malkin) as the co-moderator or perhaps as the ONLY moderator of at least 1/2 of them, then they can go to hell.
All these things are anyway is an attempt to get the conservative debater to say or do something stupid. My God, don't they Republicans get it?
The obvious answer is to fire her, but no one will have the nerve to do that. The GOP, in particular, has a long history of playing on the enemy’s battlefield.
I can see him stuttering now..... uh uh uh .... blah blah blah. Romney is far superior in intellect and he knows how to every so nicely deliver the zinger responses. He also didn’t let them get away with lies at the last debate. He talked over who he had to talk over and refuted each lie point by point. Obama will go in over confident and blow it.
She is one of the worse liberals there is. Romney needs to stuff a sock in her mouth.
It will be a hall packed with Pony Tail Guys moderated by a Lib reporter. Romney will be under assault from the get-go.
Oh, you mean the way Martha Raddaz did, huh? What a biased tool she was. And yet, Alan Simpson and the GOP RINOs keep agreeing to these debate moderators year after year.
How very politically INcorrect of you! ;^)
Her future in the media depends on Obama winning this thing. He wins, she keeps her show, he loses she gets a gig on Al Jazzera, RT or Current TV.
She’s an umpire that owes the mob a bunch of money and they’re sitting in a van outside his house awaiting the outcome of the game. Funny thing is that the fans in the stands know this.
Goes to show that the remaining two debates are excercises in futility. Nothing new will emerge and Obama will demonstrate his frustration with the fact that he has to attend the debate in the first place.
If the story on the eve of the debate is the moderator, then it is further evidence that the debate is meaningless.
I hope Cany interjects and tries to save Obama from himself, but after Joe Biden’s foolishness, the only people tuning into the debate will be MSNBC and DU Dummies.
If we are going to play these debates like this then we should get moderators on our side. Let Limbaugh and Levin moderate 2 debates and let the Candy Crowley’s of the world moderate the other 2.
That would be entertaining!
It would be hilarious if Romney would just totally ignore any of her follow ups and keep answering the question as asked by the debate participant as if Crowley didn't exist (yes I realize it would be difficult to pretend something so large didn't exist).
Romney should come out and present Crowley with a big bag of halloween candy. That will keep her quiet the whole debate.
