Who Met with Bob Schieffer Today?
RushLimbaugh,com ^ | 10/22/12 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 10/22/2012 4:12:52 PM PDT by Evil Slayer

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: My question, who from the Obama team is meeting with Bob Schieffer today? Why would I ask? Because I think somebody from the Obama team met with Candy Crowley and reminded her -- see, if you go back, if you look, two weeks before the debate, Candy Crowley herself knew that Obama did not call Benghazi a terror attack, and then somebody, two weeks before the debate, called her attention to the fact that he had and gave her that transcript. I watched the debate, and Romney hears Obama say that he called it a terror attack, and Romney knows he didn't. So Romney pauses and looks at Obama, "Wait, you are saying that you called it a terror attack, we have that on the record?" And Obama says, "Please proceed, Governor Romney." Urges him to keep going on this. "Keep going, Governor Romney, keep going. It's all right. It's okay. Keep talking."

So Romney keeps making the point that Obama didn't call it a terror attack, and then out of the blue Obama points at Candy Crowley and says, "Check the transcript, check the transcript," and she has it! She holds it up and says, "You know, he's right, Governor Romney, he did use the word," and whatever rhythm Romney had was halted or changed, and when something like that happens and you're near the time limit, you have the time limit showing, the moderator inserts herself in the deal, you instinctively know you can't go after the moderator. That will not look good. So you have to let Crowley do what she does.

Let's put it this way. There could have been coordination a week before as they just walked her through, she's a reporter, she hosts that show. Axelrod could have pointed, "Look, he said terror attack, if it comes up in the debate." It came up, interesting she had the transcript right there. What are the odds? You don't think so? Well, I do.

Schieffer has been pimping for the “death to America” crowd for a long time.

He doesn’t need any coaching.

Anybody and everybody who can help Obamagabe in the debate. I don’t give it much hope unless like Crowley he’ll shut down Romney whenever he makes a telling point.

Romney should take a good look at Newt and the way he handled somewhat the same situation during one of his debates. Schieffer should get his ass hit hard the first time he makes a misstep.

I wonder if Schieffer will say - “The questions are known to me and my team only. Neither the commission, nor the candidates have seen them.”

Is it possible for Obama to be getting the questions in advance?

It was definitely coordinated hat was evidenced by the smug, evil look on Obama’s face when he told the Governor to continue.

I wish that Rush Limbaugh would hire an editor. What he is saying is important enough often times that it should not be conversational English

One suspects that the fourth estate and lock-step fifth columnist Schieffer has his instructions from the Obama "team", and will dutifully carry out orders in a manner to be as "useful" as possible. Most likely deception? INTERRUPTING Governor Romney at every key point with a (ahem) clarifying question. Second-most-likely deception? PROMPTING Mister Obama each and every time he gets lost with another (ahem) clarifying question.

One also suspects that Mister Obama's performance will be less certain; as he might just forget his lines and crumble in the high altitude of Boca Raton, FL.

Don't know any of this for certain, of course; however these are my suspicions and you are welcome to them.

I really want to hear Mitt say, “Stay out of this Bob – I know you moderators like to jump in and help the president when he’s having trouble, but tonight’s not the night for that.”

It is a transcript of Rush Limbaugh speaking on his show. Only Rush can edit what he says.

called her attention to the fact that he had and gave her that transcript.

This is my one quibble with Rush. A fact is a true thing. By using the phrase "the fact that..." he admits that the untrue argument he is trying to refute is actually true. I understand that the public school graduates of the last several generations have much less connection with grammar and the English Language (with the caps) but they also lose thereby the ability to think clearly and to express their thoughts clearly. For a politician it lends itself to trumpeted quotations of things the politician actually said but not what he thought he said.

Glad someone else noticed that. He was happy his little cheap trick was in play.

To me part of the Romney surge is people now clearly understanding Barry is a fake, weasel worder , and not someone you want to stake your future on.

I want to know who wrote the questions that Schieffer will read tonight.

They chose the old guy because they want the scam to look dignified. If the dem pros who wrote the questions also had to read them, everyone would catch on to what they’re doing.

Sorry about that. At least I got the spelling corrected on the second attempt.

Was that a serious question or were you trying to be funny?

Serious. I am curious to know if my suspicion is held by my fellow FRiends. My suspicion is correct. Any way these weazels in the Lame-stream Media can help their guy, they will.

How? You would have to have the latest government technology, and tons of trained government agents who could spy, bug, trace, tap, any use of a digital computer or cell phone. You'd have to have equipment that can see through/hear through walls, and the ability to control the justice system to conceal what you are doing. Who has the ability to do such a thing ?

In all seriousness, the 'outline for discussion' , shown before the debate, pretty much covered the same territory as the actual questions.

Both candidates knew, basically, what the questions would be about.

IIRC, HE DID say that, in different words.

Mitt stated he was going to finish, and that Bob and Balloon Head could talk when he was done.
