Skip to comments.CROWLEY'S FALSE FACT CHECK SAVES PRESIDENT, DERAILS DEBATE
Posted on 10/16/2012 8:52:50 PM PDT by bronxville
The lowest and most dishonest part of Crowley's disgraceful "moderation" was when she actually jumped into the debate to take Obama's side when the issue of Benghazi came up. To cover for his and his administration's lying for almost two weeks about the attack coming as the result of a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video, Obama attempted to use as cover the claim that he had called the attack a "terrorist attack" on that very first day during his Rose Garden statement.
Romney correctly disputed that.
Crowley, quite incorrectly, took Obama's side and the crowd exploded.
Here's what Obama said that day:

Misinformation is the vehicle the Left uses to hold onto power. It’s no surprise.
I don't watch the alphabet news channels, do they even report this story?
After the audience clapped when Candy Whorely lied to save Obama (from his lie), I wish Romney would have looked up at the audience, then looked squarely at Whorely and said: “Looks like all these (insert hand gesture for quotes) undecided voters didn’t get the no-applause memo.”, just to let the TV viewers know how biased the audience really was, and that we’re on to it.
yet another woman dives in front of the bullet for zero.
>> Yeah, she came to Obamas defense during the debate in prime time, at midnight says oops! I’m wrong.
He’s on record as lying. This incident will only help to highlight the gross negligence and deceit that followed.
See 46 above...
One could take that as a reference to acts which include the tragedy in Benghazi, obviously, but there was clearly no effort made to label it an act of terrorism. One reason why this might be: According to U.S. law, acts of terrorism are premeditated. The Obama administrations line for days following Obamas Rose Garden statement suggested that the attack wasnt premeditated."
I didn’t watch... what does “ and the crowd exploded “ mean?
It was a sham....every question was from someone religious or racial minority lib and the questions were soft balls for Obama
except one apparently non liberal Jewish exception and God bless him...Mr Epstein who asked about Libya..he deserves MVP for tonight
does anyone think anyone is really undecided right now?
that one black dude seemed shaky for Obama
one thing...except for Epstein they were all about “What can the government do for me..as a woman...as a latino etc?”
and people like that are not libs or undecided?
i ain’t buying it
that slattern Crowley should be ashamed
I took it to be a planned signal when Obama said to Crowley, “I’m happy to have an extended discussion...” (or something to that effect) and Crowley immediately responded with, “I want to move you along” and went on to another question.
Despicable BS. Obama looked triumphant when Crowley joined in to attack Romney:
"Can you say that again... a little louder, Candy?"
It almost looked rehearsed to me...
Exactly! It's as if Obama and Crowley rehearsed the whole thing...
My wife said...dang that’s a big woman. I told her that I have seen her on TV for at least 20 years and this is by far the best she has ever looked. They must have had a dozen sheep groomers working overtime to soften her up appearance this much. I mean look at how much better she looked today than usual.
Nobody will remember the debate. What they will remember is that Obama lied and the moderator tried to give him cover by calling Romney a liar and failed. By admitting later that Romney was right, she has effectively been forced to call Obama a liar.
Candy Crowley made the debate about herself. She made an ass of herself, which wasn’t hard because she is an ass and always has been.
Obama will get a dead cat bounce from the phony polls that claim he won the debate. In fact, the bounce will be over before the sun rises tomorrow. Tomorrow the story will be about how Candy Crowley is an Obama hack.
I agree with you. She actually did disservice to her master. The whole week people will talk about this, and on the debate next week it might come up big time. Looking at her admission after the debate, I start to wonder if she realized that she was helping instead of damaging Romney. In any case, when even Anderson Cooper tweeted that she was wrong, she probably realized she has crossed the line.
I suspect this was the condition of Obama holding 3 debates. Obama knows his case and grasp upon reality, facts, & reasoning is weak to say the least and thus does not stand well to debate. Mitt probably had to do a lot to get him to attend even 1 debate much less 3.
Namely Obama probably named “moderators” he felt would be friendly to him as Crowley proved to a fraudulent extreme.
“Why do we continue to kow-tow to these folks?”
Without “safe” moderators there would be no debates, and the Dems control the media (for the time being). Don’t expect to see Lehrer moderate again - he’s done.
Remember that BJ Clinton was elected, and re-elected, with the help of a media that ensures he would never be asked unscripted questions. Later in his presidency it became clear as o why that could never be permitted - they could never have someone ask him if he went on to smoke the cigar, etc.
And it did save zerO because Romney was probably thrown off his entire Libya attack and zerO got to be the sarcastic asshole his worshipers love and adore and even applauded with his “Say it louder” bullshit in which Crowley complied. That was really the turning point for the debate because up until then Obama was sputtering trying to explain the economy and his energy polices.
