After the debate, debate moderator Candy Crowley said Republican nominee Mitt Romney was right in the main but picked the wrong word on the Obama administrations immediate response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.
Crowley interrupted Romney during the debate, insisting that President Obama had in fact called the attack an act of terror.
ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.
OBAMA: Get the transcript.
CROWLEY: It it it he did in fact, sir. So let me let me call it an act of terror
OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?
CROWLEY: He he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.
In a statement given in the Rose Garden on Sept. 12, Obama emphasized an anti-Islam video, before saying that no acts of terror would shake the resolve of this great nation.

Yet another MSM moron who thinks she is a genius.
Oh, he hinted something vaguely similar, that has to count in today’s waffly weight world.
Send her to a Fat Farm to dislodge the weight on her “brain”.
Where do they get these people? She is as big as a frig too. Poor woman...
True. But by the end she was confused. She started out trying to help Obama, but then he ran over her. And Romney wasn’t who she thought he was.
She’s probably still confused.
PS Mitt won this debate Hugely with women and independents...
He has no plan for the future, no reason given on why he should be reelected.
Sorry for the GOP, but I don’t have any sympathy. Every 4 years they allow the partisan debate commission and they always chose moderators who are leftists. Not a peep comes out of the GOP to fight this. It’s no coincidence that a moderator from FOX is not chosen. When will the GOP finally stand up and say enough?
I did not watch the debate so I have no opinion who won.
it has been my perception over the years the the losing side complains about the moderator, if you believe your guy won complaining about the moderator undercuts that view...
i have a lot of four letter words to describe candy but the only one that is printable is wildabeast. hard to imagine a more partisan job, now trying to cover her obvious mistake. if obama wins he can appoint her to take jay carney’s job.
The question that cannot be ignored for the next debate will be... Why did they continue to use the red herring about the video if they knew it was an act of terrorism the next day?
Ugly, fat slob, dim hack.
Saw that mentioned on a couple of other threads, too. I agree, he's hosed either way.
Lots of talking heads are saying this was Romney’s big mistake. I assume they’ll be crawfishing tomorrow.
I didn’t see the debate but from what I’ve read, Romney’s mistake was pushing specifically on whether Obama called it terrorism the day after instead of making a broader criticism. Apparently Crowley tried to move him along but he insisted on making the point repeatedly. At that point she finally made her comment.
Either way it was not her place to correct Romney.
