Skip to comments.Crowley’s Interference Saved Obama From Another Shellacking
Posted on 10/18/2012 5:51:21 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Candy Crowley, the moderator of the presidential debate at Hofstra University on October 16, interfered in this U.S. presidential race in a way no one ever has before andlets hopeno one ever will again. Crowley loudly validated President Barack Obamas version of realityand contradicted Governor Mitt Romneys recollection of actual realityregarding what the president said in the Rose Garden about what happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2011.
During the debate President Obama said he called the murder of four Americans an act of terrorism. Romney said he didnt. Crowley said he did. And Crowley told them they had to move along.
And then the debate did, in fact, move on. And the one opportunity during this debate that voters had to understand what Obama knew, when did he know it, and what did he call it, was lost.

whenever i bring this up before libs, they always say, “who do you want? someone from Fox?” well, why the hell not? for at least one of the four debates... damn!
Everyone has a bias. What we need is people of integrity that will not let their bias interfere with their performance.
From Fox at least, for one of them. Of course, with Ailes’ “course correction”, they might be left of center . . .
As Rush said, in normal media days, she would have already been fired.
Instead, CNN is applauding her performance, and will likely give her a raise.
Libs reward incompetence(Just look who the VP is)
Voter aren’t blind they saw Barry get shellacked regardless of the Jabba the Hutt trying to save him.
She used the Jedi mind trick on Romney but he snapped out of it.
Obama hid behind Candy’s skirt - did the same with Hillary and Rice. Pretty disgusting ...
2012, Not 2011 as the article states.
“Who do you want?” Ask the libs !
We want normal fair and professional journalists !
One should ask them , who do they want and what do they want !
A WONDERFUL WORLD with no free speech and big medias wich are the servants of the power and owned by foreign money and interests....?
We need 1 impatial FOX and one right of center RUSH before we even begin to make it more fair
The moderator did more harm to Obama than good.
Romney pushed her buttons. she reacted as if on a string. She became the issue.
Tucker Carlson who worked over at CNN said he had been told by some who he still knows over there that they are cheering her and saying well done.
What a disgrace she and CNN and the NBC’s of this world are.
Biden and oabma have now bullied their way through this and obama’s wife clapping when Crowley came to the rescue , the questions picked, the show them the transscript Candy, the crowd picked from liberal NY.
It’s all been a farce and a set up by this corrupt media.
If we win this then this will be one of the greatest victorys in history
Exactly! I was just trying to think of a conservative in the media who lies like the ones on the left have. I cannot find one. They all seem to have the truth on their side.
Can anybody think of a right winger on our side who lies? We need him or her to moderate for the balance.
The an honest moderator from either FOX or EIB.
Integrity? That is a conservative trait, and therefore would be biased.
No, I want Rush Limbaugh, or John McLaughlin, or Michelle Malkin, or Pat Buchannan, or Michael Savage etc.
It would have been hilarious if Romney had looked her square in the eye and said, show us all this information you have chosen to share with us as a third debate participant.
So he has a woman come in and save him in the debate because he can’t stand up like a man ?
I saw a shellacking, anyway. Romney did grest! He must be, he’s not pulling funding from a bunch of states and his team isn’t talking “re-trenchment!”
What we need is people of integrity
And now from Southern Soup Kitchen University
we bring you tonight's debate moderated by 0bamaphone Lady.
You suck, Rommy! You ain't getta talk.
Preach it, Bama. You in president so lay da smack down on him!
Anyone who actually LISTENED to the debate knows obama got his butt handed to him despite his little in the corner muderator and obama’s prescreened questions and question askers.
The problem is half the country will never realize it because they don't know how to THINK.
This country is in deep shit, and I blame it on pubic education.(that's not a typo)
Greta would be good. Why is it a given that the moderator has to be a media personality though?
I think she damaged him even more, because the topic today is Benghazi and the word “terrorism.” In contrast to Obama’s flat-out lies.
There is NO WAY this “helps” Obama.
The first problem is the pool from which they draw the moderator...journalists. Find another profession to draw from. Ministers? CEO’s? Hell Donald Trump would bust his butt to be impartial, because it would be a question of manhood and integrity.
Would like to see Candy Crowley before a congressional hearing to decide whether or not she lied when she said, “The questions are known to me and my team only. Neither the commission, nor the candidates have seen them.” For the record I just printed the transcript!
I’ll settle for Brit Hume. With his credentials, the establishment would be hard-pressed to say no to him.
Romney should have been prepared for the quote in question that she was referencing. Like this :
O :” I said it was an act of terrorism on day one ”
R :” Yes, and on day two to day 21 you and your staff told the public it was a mobs reaction to a youtube video. You just admitted you knew you were lying. Thank you for the rare honest admission Mr President even if it was unintentional. ”
As I said before, whining is not winning. Dems see the whining and interpret it correctly as an admission of losing.
Chris Wallace would probably do a good job as well--a bit on the liberal side but I think he would treat both candidates fairly. Major Garrett would be another one.
Mrs. Crowley...what went wrong in your head?
Oh, Mrs Crowley, did you bring Obama back from the dead?
No reason, really. Greta is just the first person that flashed to mind with integrity.
She’s serious and professional and I think she would go out of her way to be unbiased.
I sincerely can’t think of many people with great integrity. Can you?
Thomas Sowell would be good. Maaaybe Condi Rice.
I see a few good suggestions upthread between my last post to you and your last post. I wasn’t putting the suggestion out there as a challenge to your choice of Greta. I think she has the integrity and she is also tough enough and diplomatic enough to impose discipline on the participants. She has good interrogative skills too.
I didn’t take it as you challenging me, I hope I didn’t come across as a chit. Sorry about that if I did. I haven’t read much of the thread because FR is loading slooow for me.
I am seriously shocked at how hard it is for me to come up with people that I believe have the integrity and would moderate without bias but still have the smarts and firmness to get the job done.
the Romney campaign should insist that the next debate on Monday open with Crowley live, retracting her comment and elucidating what was and what was not said. And confirming, of course that POTUS moved right along to his Las Vegas fundraiser.
Bill Bennett. The man's an elite-educated polymath and mandarin-in-good-standing, they can't tell him "no, you're not good enough".
Bennett would make Barky lose his water, just sitting there looking at him. If Barky tried anything like the last debate, Bennett would gently pull Barky's testicles out through his windpipe. With the greatest respect and deference for the office, of course.
Gee, I wonder why CNN’s ratings have fallen off the map. /sarc
What about this? Is this related to Murdoch's trial?

I don’t think the phone hacking thing is related.

Candy Crowley, proud member of CLAM, Censoring Liberal Agenda Media.
Crowley proves that NO member of ANY Media should ever be a Moderator again.
Get a History Professor to be the Moderator, or have no Moderator at all.
Could you please remove the redundant post?
How many history professors are themselves not left-leaning and into “revisionism” though . . . ?
Well, you’ve got admit, hiding behind either one gives damned good cover. Him and his bus.
She did Bobo no favors, as her Benghazi bias ate up the next morning’s news cycle...
How about Professor Larry Sabato at NC, and appears on Fox from time to time as a political expert?
