At the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, a camera caught first lady Michelle Obama clapping after moderator Candy Crowley told Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney that President Obama called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" soon after the attack on the U.S. consulate.

Nearly all of the audible applause came from those sitting away from the actual debate, but when FOX News' camera shot moved to a bird's-eye view it became apparent that the only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama. Mitt Romney's wife Ann was also sitting with the debate participants.

LOL!
Wonder why the moose wore the same color as Ann Romney, hot pink? I tend to doubt this was a coincidence. Psych game?
and pink has never been moose’s signature color.

No doubt the Mooch instigated the clapping in the first place. Worst first lady ever?

So she clapped on the bald-faced lie Candy later admitted to? This whole exchange was a set up they somehow managed to screw up even though they obviously spent some time planning it. His presidency in a nutshell right there.

“Nobody is more concerned with the safety and security of those folks than I am,” said Obama about the Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Obama blasted Romney for suggesting that the administration misdirected the public after the attack by saying it was triggered spontaneously instead of being a planned terrorist act.

“The suggestion that anybody in my team ... would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, Governor, is offensive,” said Obama, highlighting that he mentioned “acts of terror” in the Rose Garden the day after the deaths.

The quote proved to be a stumbling block for Romney, who questioned Obama’s words and was eventually overruled by moderator Candy Crowley, who injected herself into the debate and backed up the president.

“It took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act by a terrorist group,” said a flustered Romney

Rules, the Law, and common decency are not a part of The Messiah’s conduct, EVER. He lays out Executive Orders to dictate what can/will be done, cannot come up with Legislation that makes sense or is consistent with the Constitution, and has NEVER looked Presidential in his lifetime. His wife is an Affirmative Action poster child, having gained all her winnings ONLY because she is black. They BOTH believe that being black allows you to ignore the Law, that Whitey owes them a living, and there’s no reason success should not be penalized when it’s Whitey who’s the target.

Rather than applause the appropriate response from the floor might have been - “Point of order Madam Chairman; the chairman is debating.”

Don’t count on the 0bamas to play by the rules. Chicago politics dictate that rules apply to other people.

“It took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act by a terrorist group,” said a flustered Romney
***************************************************

To me Mitt saw the setup when Candy convieniently recalled words from a longer speech where O called it an attack in the first paragraph, and then used terror following some lead in remarks about 9-11

It did throw him off for a second but his line of long time saved the point for the next debate.

Also, time was running out as Candy didn’t give Romney the opportunity to answer Barry’s feigned offense.

Crowleys later walk back cements the followup at the foreign policy debate.

O may think he won the battle. Mitt will win the War

Breast cancer awareness is probably the reason both women wore that color.

Overlooked is the fact that Romney put an exclamation point on obama’s Libya lie when he said, “You are saying this FOR THE RECORD?”
After that, when obama and crowley doubled down, all they succeeded in doing was to compound the lie. It is on tape. They can’t take it back. And it WILL come back to bite both of them huge.

The Obamas never worry about rules or laws. They do not have to ever obey them.

Only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama.

The rest will give applause on November 6th when he’s gone.
