Posted on 10/17/2012 10:24:47 AM PDT by maggief
Debate moderator Candy Crowley defended her decision to interject in a heated moment about Libya during last night's presidential debate, saying she was not trying to "fact check," but just trying to move the debate along.
"It didn't come to me as I'm going to fact check that. It came to me as let's get passed this? To me I was really trying to move the conversation along? This is a semantic thing," Crowley told the hosts of "The View."

If Candy Crowley is on The View it must be in panoramic
Vapid idiot....she can’t even talk in coherent sentences....
well, it was originally designed to handle Rosie.
It is obvious that she is dangerously oblivious to her ignorance.
Rinse, repeat, for next moderator.
Heck, for future moderators ..... till the cows come home.
Why Crowley is allowed to call herself a “journalist” is beyond me! She is nothing more than a liberal agenda with a big mouth. She jumped into the Libya discussion last night while tens of millions of people watched and disseminated incorrect information in defense of Obamao - that is inexcusable. When she did so, the wookie was in the audience and initiated a round of applause which violated the rules for those in the audience. Both of these fat A$$ heifers knew what they were doing and I find it to be disgusting.
So now Candy is on The View, continuing to make the presidential debate all about her. Is a book deal far behind? “No Fly on the Wall: The Candy Crowley Story”
Darn right she wanted to move on, because she knew that Obama was in trouble if the issue continued to be discussed.
The entire Benghazi debacle was a carefully orchestrated set-up between Crowley and the Obama campaign. You’ll notice that like a good straight man, Obama sets Crowley up and cues her when it’s time. Then when she is finished, he throws in the clincher.
It was a set-up — and a very transparent one at that. And it was intended not just to throttle Mitt, but to take the entire Benghazi issue off of the table.
I don’t think it was ignorance. Crowley planned to take the issue of Libya away from Romney in cohoots with the Obama team. It was preplanned. That’s why when Obama prompted her “say it louder Candy” she had her sheet in front of her immediately ready to back him up and silence Romney.
She was willing to take one for the team there, get the “big win” for her side and spin it later as merely trying to move the debate along.
These folks are not clueless they are calculating.
Here’s the bottom line, the only line. Does Obama look presidential or not? He clearly doesn’t. He may have used the “word” terror but clearly for days following and especially at the UN he said the video was the cause of the spontaneous uprising.
He and Hillary got busted. No president in my lifetime, even Clinton, lies like this presidnet does. He comes across as snarky and petty. He embarrasses me.
Anyone seeing this guy in the light of presidents who have gone before us, as being on a par with them is not a student of history or human nature.
Candy tricked Mitt and treated Obama.
How does one defend the indefensible?
“don’t become apart of the story”... a pretty big rule in journalism. Too late now for her.
". . . he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him." - Jefferson
When a man stands before the world and makes claims which are as easily disproven as those made by the President last night, then, truly, "his infamy becomes more exposed."
The 5-minute Rose Garden statement was on FOX Radio this morning, and it reveals that both Crowley and the President might take Jefferson's warning to heart: "Nothing is so mistaken as the supposition, that a person is to extricate himself from a difficulty, by intrigue, by chicanery, by dissimulation, by trimming, by an untruth, by an injustice." American voters saw the "chicanery," the "dissimulation," the "trimming," the "untruth," and the "injustice" attempted by avoiding the real question from the audience, and on November 6, both may see that the President did not "extricate" himself from the "difficulty" of his attempted cover-up of a terrorist attack on his watch.
She reminds me of the guy on Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life...”bring me a bucket”.
Oh how cute..the hippo goes on The View..I guess to show how impartial she is/sarc
Crowley was absolutely disgraceful last night..but not a surprise, she is a liberal..she did everything she could to protect Obama’s ass and it failed because now everyone will be talking about Libya for the next week and that is something Obama does NOT want to discuss
You beat me to it but same point I agree with you completely.
She also got cues fro Obama to stop the line of discussion on Fast and Furious and Obama’s pension among others, always when Romney was in the middle of making an obviously solid point.
“the wookie was in the audience and initiated a round of applause”
The must know that it is truly their weak spot.
she must have been pre scheduled for the view..maybe thats why she put on such a show at the debate..she might bew trying for a job with the gals.
Of course, any person seriously intending honesty finds that countless resolutions are not up to the task. A higher presence in one’s life is the best help.
When Candy Crowley goes camping, the bears hide THIER food in the trees.
Bravo Sierra, Ms Crowley. You served your master well.
Liberal logic = ‘If the word “terrorism” passed OUR President’s lips at any time in any context after the Benghazi attacks that is the same as saying the attack was a terrorist attack and it is a lie to say that they were trying to claim it was an unplanned response/demonstration against an obscure video.’
That's too nuanced for my feeble brain to comprehend.
Obama pussyfooted Benghazi. It was too much like his usual M.O. writ even larger than before, for any honest observer to believe this was done for any other reason than irrational denial that these wonderful Muslim Springers could ever be Terrorists too.
Candy also announced that she was starting a new job next year. A White House Intern position.
Yep, Crowley definitely played Costello to Obama’s Abbot. In fact, the foursome actually looks something alike (only Lou was much better looking than Crowley).
My eyes deceived me. I thought the title said...
Candy Crowley Defends Her Liberal Communist During Presidential Debate (on The View)
It has come about that way because of the general lowering and coarsening of society. These aren’t our grandmothers’ suffragette church committee ladies. These are, in greater and greater proportion, loose disordered hateful sluts.
I didn’t get to see “The View” today. Did they replay this; where Obama refuses Clinton’s take?: http://freebeacon.com/sept-25-obama-refused-to-describe-benghazi-attack-as-terrorism/
Don’t you mean Landscape. LOL.
Anyone else catch a glimpse of Axelrod feeding her smelt during the debate?
In 20 days we are going to have a referendum on the media, who are not going to like what they see.
I'm glad Candy finally removed any remaining doubt as to the purpose of her interruption with the blatant lie she just told on "The View".
Kick back, everyone, we're looking at a landslide. 0bama and his boot-licking lamestream media will not be able to stop the avalanche which is coming.
In a way, it's been good for these enemies of Freedom to fully expose themselves. They have helped assure that the repudiation of their dangerous ideology will be both thorough and exhaustively deep.
Reality is quite the opposite, isn't it ?
Just ask WOODWARD and BERNSTEIN.
Odd how these spontaneous decisions always seem to favor the democrat.
Maybe so, but methinks they have seriously miscalculated in this instance.
Yep. Thems was “some antics” she was involved in last night.
Correct! I’m sure the obozo robots are groaning...this issue was fading from the reluctant lamestream media, now it is back on the front page and every word of what obozo has uttered is being micro examined.
Talk about unintended consequences...LOL!
With the selected questions, the practiced theatrics and the Benghazi gotcha, we may have witnessed collusion and corruption of the political process.
Now would be a good time for the video footage of Stephens being ceremonially raped to appear. Add to that the fact that just about everyone in Libya knew about it or saw it on TV, while it was kept from the US viewing audience.
Put it on YOUTUBE and call it 'The Innocence of the Libyans'.
You certainly 'nailed' the President's 'technique'.
It's all about muttering KEYWORD PHRASES that SOUND GOOD, that RELATE to the issue, but somehow never lead to responsible action.
