Romney needs to do a preemptive strike against media bias . His opening line should include:”If you Candy Crowly interrupt me or allow Obama to interrupt me , if the questions you picked are gotcha questions against me then you prove the media is biased to the American people” and every time Candy interrupts him , he should call her out for media bias.

I just heard on Fox News that Candy will be able to ask follow up questions even tho both sides didn’t want that. I won’t hold my breath for fairness. I think Mitt will hold up to whatever is thrown at him. He is pretty sharp.

How to stop that Candy moderator from talking over Romney?

The first time she 'interjects' into the debate, Romney (or Obama) should just say to her and the audience that 'this is a townhall where the people, not the moderator, asks the questions' and then ignore her injection/question.

Yes and call her out for media bias.

Romney needs to do a preemptive strike against media bias . His opening line should include:”If you Candy Crowly interrupt me or allow Obama to interrupt me , if the questions you picked are gotcha questions against me then you prove the media is biased to the American people” and every time Candy interrupts him , he should call her out for media bias.

Yep, the fix is in; however, people are not dumb. The undecideds will break for Romney even as the media proclaims Obama the big winner.

I keep my page number at 50 and it works fairly well (all things considered). Last debate, I would hit the refresh button and if it connected, it would happen after about 8-10 seconds. If it took as long as 15 seconds, I ususally got the “failure to connect” message, so after a while I would just automatically hit the refresh button again after 15 seconds. I think the longest I was out was about 2-3 minutes.

[ That audience will have so many ‘plants’ in it that it could be mistaken for a garden. ]

Undecided voters lean left. The entire audience will favor Obama. iI won’t be surprised if they cheer Obama and boo Mitt. Informed voters are Romney coters not undecided.

I expect the entire debate to be fixed including the moderator, the questions, and the audience. Obama already knows the fix is in.

We were saying that about the last debate. It turned out we were WAY off. I am not too worried about the "fix" being in this time. I am more worried about the actual questions coming from the audience which will be almost exclusively "What are you going to do for me?". The only real answer a true conservative has to that question is "I will get out of your way and let you live how you want to live." With the entitlement mentality of today's voters, that answer is not good enough to get their vote.

My mom just brought home a bottle of wine .... she’s so worried about the debate she’s decided to play a drinking game .... got some words from a local DJ - at least one of the words is not “I”. She has the bottle she brought home plus one she got for her birthday last month (sounds like she’s thinking she’ll need both bottles!). I’m gearing up for a run to the ER ... she’s 79.

looking at that picture of Ms. Crowley shows a lot of plastic work has been done, and she looks stiff and awkward..and what is with all these ‘oldies’ with the long hair styles??? seems CNN is trying to copy the FOX chicks, and no way can they achieve that...

yesterday I was stuck at airport in Atlanta, GA and of course nothing but CNN and after three hours it was disgusting to watch...the one journalist?? Ashleigh some one was so ugly she made viewing painful!!!.. I now better understand why their ratings is in the basement...

so do I expect fairness from Ms. Plastic...NO...
