I missed the last couple of minutes. They were clearly, at least those that were chosen by Crowley to ask questions, not undecideds.

Anyone else notice how COWley and Hussein signaled each other a couple times with a nod, Hussein got three minutes more and COWley constantly cut Romney off.

I hope she takes a lot of flack for her lousy *moderating* in the upcoming daze.

Candy Crowley is like the villain of the planet Tatooine:

"Boonowa tweepi, ha, ha.

Mr Presidnet! Hay lapa no ya, Mr President!

Governor Romney, make-cheesay. Pa'sa tah ono caulky Benghazi. Yanee dah poo noo."

Do you think Crowley’s retraction was her doing the right thing—discovering she made a mistake and rectifying it—or was it politically motivated by, say, someone telling her that focus groups were saying during the debate: “Hey, even I knew he was being dishonest and the moderator was abetting it, so to h*** with that.”
It’s been less than two hours since the `town meeting’ ended. Considering the dishonesty of the media and her promptness in jumping in with, “He used the word `terror’!”.
I going to have to go with the latter.
Sorry MSM, but you haven’t given us any reasons to trust you or to give you the benefit of any doubt.

Crowley’s intervention will backfire, because it will be the talk of the news circuit tomorrow. Hence, Benghazi will be the focus of attention. And that’s the LAST THING Obama wants to happen. This will be dissected by the media and Obama will come out smelling like the turd he is. Then next week Romney can shove up Obama’s butt in the last debate.

Except the guy named Carey, who said he represented the *brain trust* [I love it ...aka water cooler crowd] at a telecom he worked at in Mineola. When Hussein aswered him, Carey had his head turned part way from Hussein, as if he couldn’t believe what he was hearing. [It was like a **EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!**]

When Romney took his turn, he looked at him face-on. After the debate and they were doing a meet and greet on stage, this Carey guy came up to talk to Romney again. If Carey was truly a undecided...looks like he fell into the Romney camp.

They’ll be ready and since foreign policy will be a main topic and it goes back to the regular debate format...it should be interesting. Problem is, it’ll be moderated by the liberal media again.

Hussein spent the whole time promoting the satus quo of the last four years.

I don’t believe for a minute that the *unemployed*, *pro-life*, *seniors* *those paying $4+/gallon for fuel*, and other minorities who will vote were swayed by Hussein.

Crowley was such an ill informed interventionist..... Does she ever watch CNN? Does she know what her own station has been reporting on Benghazi for the last three weeks? Maybe she’s just a mind numbed news reader who merely reads what is put in front of her without absorbing any of it

Either way she must never be allowed to moderate again

Smart Candy inserted her ignorance into the presidental debate. What an ego she has.

Leftist journalists love it when they can make themselves and each other the news. They are an unprofessional and stupid bunch of people.

Being smart for a journalist is to not go on television with the wrong information and make a total fool out of yourself. CNN is loserville.

Of course NOW the hippo admits Romney was right..she was Obama biggest cheerleader the ENTIRE night..she had that statement already prepared and ready to go before the question was even asked..but I think the majority of Americans who have an IQ above plant life know that Obama and his Administration have been covering up what happened in Libya from day 1

Candy was the worst debate moderator in the history of debate moderators. She was so annoying, distracting and unfair, especially when she pounded her heart with her fist and mouthed the words, “I love you” to BO.

She said Romney was right, but used “the wrong word”. That makes no sense.

In the end, Candy has helped to keep this issue alive for a few more days. Probably through the next debate since it is foreign affairs. So the news the next few days will be split between “Obama won”. and who was right on Libya. So exactly not what Obama wanted.

Just like Biden’s over the top mannerism, muted whatever points he may have scored. So will the Libya/Crowly/Obama mess up.

Immediate debate aftermath is a draw or small Obama win. But in the days to come, it will play against Obama. He screwed up and lied on too many things. And his comment about “some jobs are never coming back to the US” in the China discussion, was a big mistake. That will be all over the air the next few days. Basically it shows he is out of ideas.

Mitt is still chugging along. 3 weeks from now, Obama will have conceded and Mitt will be the president elect. I feel great.

I would like to know what hollow representation of a university conferred a degree on this stupid bitch and how in the name of Mephistopheles can CNN call her a reporter.

She is without a doubt the biggest dumbass to EVER moderate a debate and deserves to be relegated to weather reporter status in freaking Peoria. (no offense to Peoria intended)

Having been a volunteer parent judge in high school debates, it is expected that both sides will debate well. However, in the end, there can only be one winner. (Well, there is an exception, but it isn’t important here.) To me, Romney clearly won on points. He successfully attacked Obama’s record for the past four years, and successfully offered his own plan to solve things. Obama may have been more alert and aggressive, but he did not win the debate. He lost again.

The question that must be answered though is if Obama has a foreign policy record he can defend. And time needs to be spent on what he meant by being more flexible with Russia if he wins again.

"Crowley was such an ill informed interventionist...."

This is from her opening statement tonight:

Crowley: "My goal is to give the conversation direction and to ensure questions get answered."

She overstepped her own guidelines a bit didn't she. Must be she believes interfering, taking sides, and affirming false info is giving the conversation direction.

He!! her ovaries have been dead and flat for well over ten years...she is no spring chicken and her plastic face has to be thanks for advice and referrals from Nancy Pelosi..

I can remember Candy Crowley from way back and she is as phony looking as B.Hussein Obama is as a President.

I sent an email to CNN..just for the fun of it...stating that some how, some way the Presidential Debates in the future need some new policies in selecting moderators...they just can't all be ONE SIDED.. I personally though she did a terrible job, lost control and looked very un-professional for a so called journalist or network spokesperson...what ever her title is... I never watch CNN any longer...say ten years or so, just can't tolerate them......

your photo of Candy Crowley is a good picture of how she use to look...most definitely she has under gone facial work, and looks like all the old chicks are trying for the Hillary longer hair style....

as a hairdresser for over 42+years I suggest ‘when older, shorter is better and more stylish’ but hell I'm just an old lady saying that...

And easier to care for. I'm 65, and have worn my hair short for many years. I hadn't thought of her going for the Hillary look until you mentioned it, but you could be right. Sadly, it doesn't work for either of them. It only makes them look worse than they already are.

“Pay inequality for women”

Well, it was just a stupid kid who asked it. Funny enough, both kinda admitted it’s due at least in part to actual differences between men and women, so that the 72% or whatever figure is BS for comparing apples and oranges. Shocking to me was how Obama saved the “war on women” bit for the second round.

By the way, why did so many stupid kids ask questions? What percent of voters are 20 year-olds? Negative 5?

I keep hearing stories about a debating commission with members from both sides endlessly nitpicking over every detail down to the Colorado of the carpet. So why do we always get moderator’s like her? Aside from the MSM being overwhelmingly lib and consequently the pickins being slim, what’re the odds? And why do we stand for it?

I've tried everything over the years and had just about every color other than Black...and recently because of bilateral cochlear implants decided to let my hair grow a bit...hairdresser daughter saw me recently..said...NO WAY MOM, THAT HAIR HAS GOT TO GO...AND SO IT DID...

Hillary is right to use the lighter color but the length and style of her hair is for one maybe in their thirty's or forties but not one climbing up on seventy... just one more comment...I thought after ten minuets that Obama had advance notice of all questions, his answers just too fast and pat down...then by ten p.m was sure this was a fixed debate and FAKE, PHONY, AND A FRAUD....

Yes, I was hoping Romney would come back with: "I won't accept that as a premise. Given a level playing field, we can compete with anyone. America has its people, its freedom, fabulous resources if allowed to tap them, and even many geographic advantages. We can succeed economically against anyone, if we just take off the chains that are dragging us down. I refuse to give up on any jobs, and I will fight every day for good jobs for everyone who wants one."

The point should also be made that once one can create high demand for workers, instead of high demand for work, the businesses needing workers will find ways to accomplish worker training, rather than have the Gov't try to guess what will be needed.

BTW, I am not just talking about in-house training, though much more of that used to occur. Businesses can also harder and contribute more in a variety of ways with local colleges, technical schools, and the like.

When it’s an employers’ market, though, employers will often wait for the “perfect” applicant to show up.

The problem with this is: Romney could have hit harder. The fact is, that Obama did say “terrorist attacks” in his Rose Garden speech when he addressed the Benghazi murders.

Now, the waters are muddy when we were making headway.

This will definitely be addressed in the next debate, which is all about foreign policy
