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.

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

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.

To be clear, if the video of Crowley lying for Obama during the debate, followed by her video "correcting" herself after the debate isn't in an ad by 8am, someone isn't doing their job.

“every question was from someone religious or racial minority lib and the questions were soft balls for Obama”

When Obama addressed the audience member by the name of “Barry”, it looked to me like Obama assumed he had an ally but after the debate, there was Barry, smiling and standing next to Romney.

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.

Another part of that brilliant tactic is that they intentionally left the compound unguarded for the ensuing three weeks in order to fool the terrorists into thinking that the Administration was incompetent.

Neither terror nor terrorist is in that statement. He used the words outrageous and senseless violence and only in the context of religious differences. That’s why Romney pressed the point, which Obama fell for.

The Democrats have a real problem.

When Obama speaks ex cathedra, it is more than a simple lie. It becomes infallible doctrine that must be adopted by the entire party in order to preserve the fiction that Barack Obama is intelligent, truthful, and competent to be President.

An example of this type of statement is when he said in an early Democrat Primary debate in 2008 that he would talk directly with Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and that by doing so, he could defuse Irans nuclear and terror export programs. Instead of walking this statement back the next day, he enshrined this error as a cornerstone of his campaign and it became the fundamental weakness of his Presidential foreign policy.

Another example of this is his oft repeated promise that "If you like your doctor, you can keep him!" This was clearly and demonstrably not true under Obamacare, and the inability of the patient to continue current arrangements remains one of the primary reasons people resist the implementation of the rule. But Obama made this statement so absolutely and so emphatically that every Democrat was required to pretend it was true.

And now we come to his statement in last night's debate, full of bluster and high dungeon, that the suggestion that anybody in his team, whether the Secretary of State, our U.N. Ambassador, or anybody else, would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own, is offensive, and not what he does as President or Commander in Chief. This statement now becomes the new Reality According to Barack Obama. Unfortunately for the President, it is easily contradicted by any of a thousand easily verifiable sources. Defending this statement is going to lead to endless contradiction and will only make the President look like even more of a manipulative liar.

This was a calculated lie on the part of O’Bummer. Didn’t I read that Axelrod told Crowley that O’Bummer said that earlier in the day just to plant the false thought in her head?

That was the single most destructive moment of the debate....the Romney campaign MUST run an ad on this issue and run it across the country, using her words, his words and his regimes words to discredit this exchange as it looked bad for him even though it was p[ure lies.

Totally agree with you. Romney missed this opening on stage, but people are now going to focus on how many times Obama blamed the Benghazi attack on a riot sparked by a video. Susan Rice on five Sept. 16 talk shows; Obama and Hillary with the coffins; Obama at the UN.

Obama - and Crowley’s - assertion that he called out Benghazi as a terror attack is absurd. Doing so would interfere with Obama’s narrative that al-Qaeda is defeated and that he - as he promised in 2008 - has made the Middle East like America, all because of him.

Plus Crowley is now backtracking, trying to save her journalistic credibility, to the extent she had some. Get the popcorn

Here is the CNN story where Axelrod is false programming Crowley and trying to rewrite history:

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/10/01/axelrod-we-dont-need-a-president-who-shoots-first-and-asks-questions-later/

Speaking of chutzpah, Axelrod tried rewriting history in another part of the same interview:

“Well, first of all, Candy, as you know, the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened,” President Barack Obama’s chief campaign strategist David Axelrod told CNN’s Candy Crowley Sept. 30.”

Did anyone see the “crowd” of undecided voters clap after Candy said the President was right? Most of America knows that it took weeks for it to be called terrorism....they tried to force feed “it was the video stupid”.

Now, now, let’s not talk down the wonderful “undecided” voters.......especially the “undecided” voter whose question to Romney was about Bush.

Everyone in this house actually laughed when she said that. Undecided? really?

The debate is only remembered for Candy Crowley trying to help Obama by lying about a press conference. The moderator clearly lies and one of the participants encourages her.

GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

I don’t think he’ll even get a dead cat bounce. He is a nasty piece of work and that came through loud and clear. He’s a lying cheap shot artist and couldn’t have looked and acted more UNpresidential. Romney will answer with a devastating ad on Libya with a clip of candy admitting Obama lied. I thought Romney slamming him on going to Vegas bloodied him up good. I like that Romney was fearless and not intimidated in the least. Romney’s forthcoming ads will finish him off. We need a good one about women. How Obama paid them less. How Obama reduces women to contraceptives and abortions rather than their intelligence and contributions to their families, workforce and society.

The Obama crowd may feel they have “won” the debate — but they have lost the election with their skanky little tricks with Candy. It was so obvious to everyone watching that Obama was made VERRRY uncomfortable when Mitt pressed him and that Obama’s you know what was pulled out of the fire by Candy. My only disappointment with Mitt is that he appeared to have underestimated how far the White House would go with the press to lie and smear. I think he got an education last night!!!

Who makes these decisions, and when are you going to out them as the plants that they are?

Also the questions which were pciked were a joke, AK 47, woman’s pay but the best bias was the woman who stood up and said she was not hapy wth the last 4 years but it;s not obama’s fault it;s because of overseas and Bush, WTH WAS THAT ABOUT.

Obama never answered one question , not frigging one and he just kept lying about his record , drilling, Libya

Romney was great. Team Crowly-Obama sucked.

Candy was determined to take the spot light. She made it clear before the debate that she was not a “fly on the wall” and would disregard her pledge to stay out of the debate.

She jumped into the debate before then. From the start she simply refused to honor the rules she agreed to.
