Skip to comments.Crowley: Romney ‘Right’ Obama Didn’t Call Libya Terror,.. ["instinct forced her" call on Romney]
Posted on 10/16/2012 11:16:33 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
........I heard the president speak at the time. I, sort of, reread a lot of stuff about Libya because I knew wed probably get a Libya question so I kind of wanted to be up on it, said Crowley. I knew that the president had said, you know, these acts of terror wont stand. Or, whatever the whole quote was.
Right after that I did turn around and say, but youre totally correct that they spent two weeks telling us this was about a tape and that that there was this riot outside the Benghazi consulate which there wasnt, Crowley added.
He was right in the main, I just think he picked the wrong word, Crowley concluded. She went on to say that her instinct forced her to correct Romney even though his thrust was correct."...........

Yeah and I bet it was “instinct” for her to have that info on her to begin with..I tell ya that Candy Crowley is a psychic isn’t she..to already have that info sitting right there when she had NO idea what Obama would say about it, its like she already knew what Obama would say, like she rehearsed it with him, nah can’t be..she’s just so darn impartial/sarc
Just maybe there’s a reason why someone with an opposing instinct should moderate two of the four debates.
Imagine the Left agreeing to have four FoxNews talking heads doing the debates.
I’m guessing they’d think that was a bit fishy.
0bama DENIED security, Americans DIED then 0bama LIED. I do not believe for one second that 0bama wasn’t aware of the security issue, given prior MAJOR attacks on that embassy.
At the next question, the moderator lost all control. Candy, Mr. Obama said. Hold on. Mr. President, the governor said, Im still speaking. They mixed it up for a bit, then Ms. Crowley said: Sit down, Mr. Romney.
The most shocking exchange took place on the Benghazi attack that left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others dead.
Mr. Romney: You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror? It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what youre saying.
Mr. Obama made no defense. Please proceed, governor.
I want to make sure, Mr. Romney said. Get the transcript, the president said. Then Ms. Crowley jumped in to do her own fact-check, on the spot. It it it he did in fact, sir. He did call it an act of terror.
The truth is, he didnt. The day after the attack, he said only this: No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. It took another two weeks before the White House would label the attack an act of terror........"
I’d like to thrust her.....what a fat useless cow....
Yep. The administration’s misleading narrative on the youtube video
will stay in the news, as Crowley’s bad call will. It’s the equivalent
of the replacement refs blowing the call and screwing the Packers.
Crowley promised to mess this up, and she followed through.
Crowley is a Obamite b*tch so in the tank for Obama. Interfering with the flow of the debate to favor Obama. If she didn’t step into it, Obama would be shamed. Crowley should never be allowed to work this venue ever again. And she should forever be held to ridicule as being so blatently biased to lie to cover this president.
Crowley said she had prepared for the Libya topic. Quite right. She was prepared to help her boy and that’s exactly what she did. BUT, by interjecting herself so blatantly and INCORRECTLY in the debate, she probably did more damage to Bammy than Romney ever could have in one debate moment. For this topic will stay alive for days or weeks, extending into the next debate and making viewers even more skeptical of whichever liberal moderates that one.
Just watching that clip you can see she is struggling to explain what she did. She mentioned twice how she had also commented on Obama’s false assertion about the video; as if that evened it all out.
Instinct = liberal bias
It wouldn’t have mattered to a good moderator. A good moderator would have said “Mr. President. Would you like another 5 seconds to answer the question? The questioner wants to know who rejected the requested extra security.”
And since there was not a good moderator there, Romney Should have said it. I hope someone on his team sees this and gives him the line in the final debate on foreign policy.
what a fat useless cow...
I hate that Candy and the media
I agree, Romney could have really nailed Obama on Libya but for some reason did not. Bring up how the State Department had a memo on September 5th on their own web site that stated how even though they have no intelligence about an attack that might take place there should be more security..and how, if Obama DID say this was a terrorist attack, how come for TWO DAMN WEEKS they blamed this on the stupid video..Romney should have used the words “COVER UP” maybe he’s saving it for the final debate but he should start using those words
“.................Responding to Crowleys intervention, Obama said: ‘Candy, could you say that a little louder?’ That tense moment saw the audience burst into a round of applause - despite rules meant to restrict any displays of partisanship from the crowd.....”
