Skip to comments.Candy Crowley: Romney ‘Right’ That Obama Didn’t Call Libya Terror, thought He Picked Wrong Word
Posted on 10/16/2012 10:10:00 PM PDT by NoLibZone
CNN anchor and debate moderator Candy Crowley joined CNNs panel after the debate to discuss a moment where she corrected Mitt Romney after he claimed that President Barack Obama had refused to characterize the attack in Libya an act of terror for 14 days. Crowley said that Romneys was right in that the Obama administration spent weeks refusing to say that the attack was terrorism, but she thought at the time that he picked the wrong word.
I heard the president speak at the time. I, sort of, reread a lot of stuff about Libya because I knew wed probably get a Libya question so I kind of wanted to be up on it, said Crowley. I knew that the president had said, you know, these acts of terror wont stand. Or, whatever the whole quote was.
Right after that I did turn around and say, but youre totally correct that they spent two weeks telling us this was about a tape and that that there was this riot outside the Benghazi consulate which there wasnt, Crowley added.
He was right in the main, I just think he picked the wrong word, Crowley concluded. She went on to say that her instinct forced her to correct Romney even though his thrust was correct.
Watch the clip below via CNN:
Wasn’t she told NOT to enter the debate?
Another sham moderator.
BS, Obama said he called this an act of terror.
She is full of it, a complete idiot that thinks we are stupid.
i saw her say this and i still don’t understand what she means by, “picked the wrong word.” who picked the wrong word? Romney? Obama? who is she to say someone picked the wrong word? i knew it was a mistake to not have her adhere to the same rules the candidates agreed to...
What "instinct" would that be Candy, your pro-socialist anti-capitalist instinct?
Some people call such "instinct" B-I-A-S.
and how she is talking about how people are going to parse words... heck, isn’t that what she did when she decided someone picked the wrong word?
God works in mysterious ways.... interjecting herself, and being wrong, will keep this alive in the media until the next debate. Let them debate the semantics on TV the next few days. Not what Obama wanted.
And Mitt will be well prepared for it next week.
3 weeks from now, Obama will have conceded. And Mitt will be president elect. Wow.
It does no good to say she is not a professional. That does not matter to her and she proved it again tonight. She is a democratic hack.
Still parsing words. They can never just tell the facts or the truth. Romney was right but he used the wrong words. Crap.
The B__ch and obastard are both liars and the truth is not in them... anywhere.
Kerry Ladka was the man in the audience and asked the specific question ......Who was it that denied enhanced security and why?
I really wanted to know the answer. Why didn’t Romney put Obama on the spot and ask why he didn’t answer the question.
Only Obama and Crowley seem to know about the alleged utterance. As far as the rest of the World is concerned, he spent at least two weeks trashing free speech without any direct reference to a terror angle.
The bitch said real loud that Obama was right twice, and then said real softly that Romney had made a solid point.
Of course Obama was spouting off then too, so you heard none of the part where Crowly admits Romney was right.
The debate was supposed to allow responses to comments.
Several times Crowley cut off the debate without allowing Romney to respond.
Obama took a question and answered it. Romney got to respond. Crowly asked Obama a follow-up. He responded. Then she refused to let Romney respond.
Romney would up with three minutes less talk-time, and Crowly became the third debate member telling Romney he was wrong.
I’m so tired of the Leftist bull s—t.
The American People see right through it and on Nov.6th are going to make their views very clear.
I’d prefer that Judge Judy moderate the next one.
So, this is her version of Dan Ratherism, only with a twist. “Despite saying a wrong word, Romney was actually right.”
She had no business "correcting" ANYONE.
She's just an obvious party hack, doing what Rats do best - completely RAPING the responsibility they've been given, and then claiming victimhood, in order to CHEAT on behalf of their political faction. Gee, what a freeking surprise - a gutter rat BEING a gutter rat.
What an absolute piece of utter garbage she is - personally and professionally.
Ann Coulter liked Romney but she just isn’t grounded in reality enough, could you imagine if Republicans pulled the same stuff as Dems?
Like, Fast and Furious .... Obama, you are racist against Mexicans because you are supplying guns for them to kill each other with.
Obama, you are ok with gun control in the United States but you are ok with the US Government Supplying guns to the cartels.
The double standard is sickening.
So what the hell was the wrong word? Terror? I think that was the “thrust” of Romney’s point, you dumbass Leftist media stooge.
