Crowley On September 30th: Administration Took Weeks To Admit Benghazi Might Be A Terrorist Attack
ace of spades ^ | 10.17 | drew m

Posted on 10/17/2012 10:09:51 AM PDT by RummyChick

@lochnar with a great catch from Candy Crowley's interview with David Axelrod on September 30th.

Here's the full exchange for context (video here). I'll highlight what I think are the important parts.

CROWLEY: I am joined by Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod. I want to pick up on what John McCain and I were talking about. There's a back and forth now about why didn't this administration -- why did it take them until Friday after a September 11th attack in Libya to come to the conclusion that it was premeditated and that there was terrorists involved. John McCain said it doesn't pass the smell test, or it's willful ignorance to think that they didn't know before this what was going on. Your reaction?

AXELROD: Well, first of all, Candy, as you know, the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. But when you're the responsible party, when you're the administration, then you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believes. This was -- this is being thoroughly investigated.

CROWLEY: But first it was, like, not planned.

AXELROD: We need to bring to justice--

CROWLEY: First, they said it was not planned, it was part of this tape. All that stuff.

AXELROD: As the director of national intelligence said on Friday, that was the original information that that was given to us. What we don't need is a president or an administration that shoots first and asks questions later.

CROWLEY: But isn't that what happened?

she forgot to wear her obama shirt last night but after she jumped in yet again stopping Romney from making a decent point and which most of America has never heard from this crap we call the media then did you see obama’s wife then start clapping?

Yea she was supposed to remain quiet but started clapping when Crowley came to her husbands defense.

What a crock that was and Romney after the biased for the most part crowd, the really mostly stupid questions like how are you different from Bush and then Crowley tag teaming Romney then Romney did really well.

http://nation.foxnews.com/rep-jason-chaffetz/2012/10/17/chaffetz-tells-crowley-her-face-its-not-your-place

“On Soledad O’Brien’s program on CNN this morning, Candy Crowley said she was simply trying to move the debate along when she sided with Obama on the Rose Garden speech. She said she did not think it a “leap” to interpret that the Rose Garden setting and occasion of Benghazi meant that the president, in his speech, was indeed referring to Benghazi when he spoke about “no acts of terror…” She said both Romney and Obama looked at her in a way that indicated they, too, had wanted to move on to another topic.

Rep. Chaffetz, seated at the same roundtable with Crowley, then told Crowley to her face, albeit respectfully, that “it’s not your place” to serve as fact-checker at that particular moment, and added: “I happen to believe your assessment was wrong.””

The false claims that it was an “American made” video that CAUSED the Muzzies to attack was too good a a chance for Hillary & Barack to kill two birds with one stone . . the 9/11 Benghazi Terrorist Attack explanations AND our Constitutional right to free speech. - What’s not to love?

NBC News correspondent Chuck Todd reported that the greatest complaint against Candy Crowley by other journalists was that she didn’t allow Romney and Obama to engage either other and often stopped debate to move on to other questions.

Chuck Todd is a panzy opportunist who panders to his idols Matthews and Mr. Maddow.

His spin that you posted is typical to get a tingle from Chris and Olbermann-in-drag Maddow.

Well she certainly STOPPED Romney from making rebuttal points, and encouraged Obama to do what he willed.

Candy was handy to Censor Mitt,
No apologies there, not one little bit!
“Keep Obama afloat” was her duty charge,
Keep censoring Romney and make Obama look fit!

The Censoring Liberal Agenda Media (CLAM)
Will give Crowley her reward,
The First Woman Referee in Presidential Town Hall,
Proudly, so proudly kept Obama from a bad fall.

And now the CLAM workers,
And all Axelrod’s men
Will spin Democrat glue
Over Obama’s thin skin.

I just learned that it was Michelle Obama who led the applause when Barry told Crowley; “Candy please say that again.”

Slightly OT:

AXELROD: As the director of national intelligence said on Friday, that was the original information that that was given to us. What we don't need is a president or an administration that shoots first and asks questions later.

If it is a case of someone attacking a U.S. Embassy or Consulate, with Americans' lives at high risk, I happen to disagree!
