CROWLEY'S FALSE FACT CHECK SAVES PRESIDENT, DERAILS DEBATE
Breitbart.com ^ | 10-16-2012 | John Nolte

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:

That's despicable on Crowley's part.

They had the wrong Crowley. They should have used Fox News commentator Monica Crowley, who would have asked tough questions of both candidates.

Ha! Candy effectively has taken the debate that BO did better in and has made the Libya part and her part in the debate what will be talked about all week. BO’s lying will now be the main topic of what came out of the debate. Thanks Candy!

How the hell can conservatives except a liberal moderator to be impartial? Time after time conservatives allow liberals to moderate ... what the hell!! Makes me want to scream!! Why do we continue to kow-tow to these folks? And we wonder why we lose elections.

With this attitude, we deserve to lose.

I’m still watching Fox... Hannity just mentioned something about Crowley now admitting that she was incorrect on the “fact check” of the Libya comment.

Too little, too late in my opinion, as the first impression will have more effect than even a televised correction.

Keep an ear out for more...

The debate ended when Crowley joined Obama in attacking Romney. That was BS.

I forgot to post the video of the Libya part...sorry.

She really sandbagged Romney. ALmost like it was coordinated. Just as the question which gave Obama the opportunity to mention the 47 thing when Romney couldn’t respond. Romney knew he’d do it which is why he mentioned it prior to Obama. Crowley sucked big time.

Hannity just said that Crowley has admitted that Romney was right on Libya and that she made a mistake. He didn't cite his source on it.

At this very second Obama's flak chuckers are assembling around their hero to protect him.. from truth. The "they did it because of the video was put out there by Hillary! the night before.

9/11/2012: HRC: "The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others."

Yes Obama said the word terror.. but in a generic sense of everyday terror of mobs in Islamist countries around the globe.

I heard one of the msm float a new wrinkle on the Obama lies today.

He said that possibly the Obama administration knew immediately that it was a terrorist attack but they were putting out the false narrative to fool the terrorist. Our people would then be able to apprehend them more easily if they thought they had gotten away clean.

It was all a brilliant tactic you see?

A few of the comments on Breitbart mentioned that Michelle Obama led the clap for Obama and that she also had a sign which said “laugh” on it. I didn’t see the whole debate...did anyone notice her antics?

The 47 percent comment failed badly..on CNN they had a graph which showed the response from people who were watching the debate, the second Obama mentioned the 47 percent he flat lined..people are sick and tired about hearing about the 47 percent..most people with a brain understand what Romney meant and agree with him

Not only the tag team sandbagging of Obama&Crowley on Romney, and now she coming out saying that Romney was right and that she lied.....
But ?
This is the last thing that Obama and this Administration wants is more air time and attention given to what happened in Benghazi.
This just kicks the can farther down the road of news cycles for Benghazi and this will stay in the news even up until the election and after.
This is the last thing they wanted.....
Romney can hit this out of the park at his campaign stops and if Obama says " I didn't say that " ... all Romney has to say is: " that Crowley admitted she was wrong and that Romney was right...... now Obama ? who's telling the truth here ? " ..... ROMNEY CAMPAIGN ? taking notes ?

Romney campaign ? this is a Golden opportunity for you now to hit this Benghazigate out of the park and keep it in the news cycle until the election.
Yes, Romney campaign ? all Romney has to say is : " Obama ? even Crowley admitted she was wrong and I was right, now who ? is telling the truth to the American people ? "

The silver lining on this is that all everyone will talk about about this debate tomorrow will be how Mitt was right and both Obama and the Moderator was wrong, and will put Libya as a focus issue for the next 3 weeks.

So in a way it will work to our benefit.

LOL. I missed the debate. It sounds like Crowley is what I thought she was. This comment reminds me of South Park quote.

Kyle - Cartman, you have such a fat ass, that when people walk down the street they go, *** damn, that's a big, fat ass.'

Cartman - No, they don't, you jealous weakling.

Passerby - *** damn, that's a big fat ass.

Or deny the terrorists the satisfaction of seeing their terrorism being trumpeted by their targets, though that would be a more likely explanation if it were a GOP president.

It was never, ever a real debate to begin with. It was moderated by a known Democrat supporting liberal with an audience made up nearly entirely of 2008 election Obama voters and answers stage managed to support Obama’s reelection.

It is simply a propaganda set-piece which makes Romney’s performance all the more remarkable. I started out supporting Romney by simply voting against Obama, now I’m voting for Romney.

Notice how these debates are aired on every normal channel?

If they had one conservative moderator, the broadcast networks and MSNBC and likely CNN would drop out.

Haven't watched SP in years, but I remember that, along with the alien probe, Jesus boxing the devil (my favorite), and Sparky the gayest dog Cartman's ever seen.

It wouldn't shock me in the least if Crowley rigged it. I saw this one article on redstate the other day that basically showed how inbred DC Journalism is these days. The bias was worse than I thought, and I've at times worked in the business (local political).

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.

"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve..."

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 administration’s line for days following Obama’s Rose Garden statement suggested that the attack wasn’t premeditated."

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
