She knew she could get all the NY libs in the audience joining her if she began.

thought I was the only one who noticed it.

When Crowley jumped in and defend oabma I saw his wife start the clapping and cheering.

WHY IS THIS NOT NEING MENTIONED TOO?

She is a street thug, he is a street thug and both showed there was no class shown yet again.

I want to know why this is not being mentioned more.

SHe was supposed to shut up and not clap and yet she led the cheering and clapping when Crowley defended obama with his lies.

Moochie’s clapping was most likely scripted. But Axel’s ploy failed because the entire room didn’t join her as planned.

I heard the clapping and cheering at one point and thought...WTF?!

It really stood out.

I thought there was to be no cheering so much for an undecided voters and now it turns out it was Michelle and the reporters.

But many debate watchers on Twitter noticed that First Lady Michelle Obama — in bright pink in the bottom right-hand corner of the cutaway shown on Fox News (we’ve screen-capped it above) — clapped loudly, vigorously, and ostentatiously during the shameful Obama/Crowley tag-team against Romney over what the president said in the Rose Garden about Benghazi.

that whole fiasco last night was a disgrace, just as the Biden debate.

Both bullied and was rude, both lied, both ran away from the last 4 years and for his wife to start clapping and cheering was a national disgrace.

I have family overseas, and they have all said to me this morning via Skype that they thought the debate lacked class and looked to be two men who just wanted to disgrace themselves but even worse how the President looked and how aggressive he was and the butting and and being rude was a big turn off.

Education officials have withheld students'graduation diplomas for less. This should be an acceptable practice now that Michelle Obama has set the standard.

I saw her clapping as rwley jumped in defending obama.

The camera pans overhead and you can see 3 women, one being MO wearing her pink dress starting the clapping as soon as her husband is defended.

This was a national disgrace and for these talking heads on TV saying this was great, this was like boxing is pathetic.

This was a Presidential debate to the public for them to make their minds up and asking questions like how are you not Bush or AK47’s or even woman's pay was stupid

Au contraire...it was Mitt's finest hour. He stood alone, one against 100, and kicked a$$. This is what he's going to face when facing the Media the next four years as President. He showed me he can more than hold his own.

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.

So who, besides Michelle, was doing all the clapping? The press? Was there an extra audience somewhere?

Rules? The Obamas don't need no stinkin' rules. They are the Rulers, doncha know.

Always said...Michelle ain't no lady. What a pitiful example of respectable behavior she is. When those two are booted out of the White House the standard for morality, decency, decorum, and class will have to be picked up from off the floor. They have lowered it so much that it's no wonder today's generation treat people with such disrespect.

The Obamas have made an art out of ridiculing. They are professionals at it. And they claim to support anti-bullying - when all they know is how to make fun of, laugh at, or criticize others.

The room set aside for reporters to watch Tuesday night’s debate erupted into applause after President Obama ridiculed the size of Mitt Romney’s personal wealth.

Reporters Preparing to Cover Debate By Drinking Free Beer

http://politicker.com/2012/10/reporters-preparing-to-cover-debate-by-drinking-free-beer/

Some of the reporters covering tonight’s presidential debate at Hofstra University in Long Island may be F.W.I.–filing while intoxicated. Anheuser-Busch is apparently a sponsor of tonight’s rhetorical battle and the beer company has set up a “hospitality tent” outside the media filing center where reporters are being treated to free food, brews and souvenir glasses.

The beers being served at the debate are apparently Anheuser-Busch’s “small batch” brews. Bartenders inside the tent confirmed they were indeed quite “busy” this evening.

Along with the myth that this women is even remotely attractive, (and I know she really can’t help looking like Patrick Ewing, she was born that way) the media has tried to spin this image of the Mooch as the epitome of class and grace. Girl is just as butt-ugly on the inside as she is outside. Ugly to the core.

If you watch the video, at about the 19-20 sec moment, you can see several in the audience at the left looking to see who is clapping as Michelle ends her clapping.

Drudge has a headline, “Reporters applaud Obama slam on Romney’s wealth.”

He had another article about the free beer that was flowing to the reporters, wondering if they were drunk during the debate.

agree, ever noticed how republican Presidents disappear and let the new President do his job but Dem ex Presidents are always in the spot light, same as their wives but I have a feeling that big bum will be out there all the time running her mouth off putting down the next republican President.

An Romney has class, she has grace and she certainly can carry herself well unlike Michelle obama who has shown us her panty lines, legs open, her cleavage a lot and clothes which never seem to fit.

Is there a penalty for rule breaking? It’s like everything else with this administration. So 4 people were killed. “I take responsibility for that.” And that’s that. They do this over and over and over again.

The ‘Rules’ NEVER seem to apply to the Obama’s in particular & to the Liberals in general.

We were assured at the start of the debate there would be no outbursts-no clapping-no interruptions, etc.

Michelle & Barry do as they please.

Petulance & Narcissism—birds of a feather.

I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I noticed Michelle Obama had a pink dress on like Ann Romney. I wondered if her choice of clothes was a psyche out or a nose thumb to the Romneys.
