Obama still wrong on Libya;
Crowley blows it

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/17/2012 9:28:19 AM

In what surely was one of the weirdest incidents in a presidential debate, CNN’s Candy Crowley egregiously sided with President Obama on his false remarks on Libya, was repeatedly and decisively fact-checked post-debate as wrong (somewhere between “mostly wrong” and “pants on fire” in my book) and then backed away from her own incorrect assertion. As was the case in the vice presidential debate, the biggest story may be the after-the-debate tumult over White House misrepresentations on Libya. Here was the exchange:

Candy was determined to be the story. How was she singled out to be moderator? I can name 20 people more qualified, who would be better prepared and would move the debate along without interfering.

Romney will have his chance to nail Obama on this at the next debate. How will O back away from the eight or more times he said this attack was a response to a video(including in that speech in the Rose Garden).

Rubin has an excellent idea:

Romney would do well to simply recite the timeline to viewers, making clear the president was either dissembling or out of the intelligence loop (which quickly discarded the spontaneous video protest theory because, of course, there never was a protest).

This is one example of how and when a simple timeline can do more clarification than any wordy prose.

This is the thing that bothers me most. It is quite possible that last night was a draw or in favor of Romney, BUT FOR Candy Crowley attacking MItt on Benghazi. Why on God's green eatrth do Republicans allow far left moderators. Using Candy Crowley was like using a dumber Charles Krauthammer. Last lady moderator was almost like using Ann Coulter. I mean give me a break, whats wrong with us??

I heard it said best: “Debate moderator Candy Crowley wins the NFL replacement ref award”. Her “correction” of Mitt Romney of Libya was dead wrong. She later admitted such, but I suspect she knew all along. I found it odd that after Crowley's brazen attempt to rescue Obama, the "undecided" crowd cheered.

The only way to make these debates fair at this point is to appoint Michelle Malkin as the moderator for the third debate.

Call me Polyanna, but I think this is going to turn out like the Biden-Ryan debate--the media and other libs will initially crow about 0's comeback, but very shortly it will be seen that 0 didn't help himself much, if any, and may actually have hurt himself more. Crowley, too may have launched a boomerang at Romney that will come back and bounce off her fair-haired boy's noggin, by keeping the Libya story front and center. At any rate, I think 0 needed more than just a win to overcome his first pratfall, he needed Romney to fall flat on his face, and that apparently didn't happen.

I'm amazed ANYONE would think these "debates" are anything but TOTALLY RIGGED from the beginning.

The "Presidential Debate Commission" is a game run on the American citizen.

1. Originally created by the very left leaning League of Women Voters

2. Now owned by the Republican and Democrat Party (guess who wines those tug of wars)

3. Chaired by Mike McCurry and Frank Fahrenkopf (that's one sort-of Conservative)

4. Board members are - Howard Graham Buffett, J.C. Danforth, J. Griffen, A. Hernandez, C. Kennedy, N.N. Minow, R.D. Parsons, D. Ridings, A.K. Simpson

Danforth a Conservative? Make me guffaw. Simpson? Make me belly laugh.

And that "C. Kennedy"?

That's Caroline Kennedy. Whose only credentials for anything is being born into a mafia dynasty, the second half of which word is "nasty".

The "debates" are rigged, and you know it.

Obama: "Check the transcripts."
Candy: (gesturing wildly) "I... he did in fact, sir."
Obama: "Momm... Candy, Candy..."

(Some say) It's mighty fishy that Candy had this obscure, teeny factoid on the tip of her tongue at the very instant Barry called out to her for help.

On the choice of moderators: I am going to be forwarding this message to the RNC regarding future debates. Why did you agree to these left wing moderators and the format of the debates???? What was your goal, and was it accomplished??? Are we “pandering” to the left for votes or was this just a “miscalculation” based on the polls???? I am a Republican and have contributed to the Romney/Ryan campaign because I believe in them. I believe the “debates” I have witnessed for both of my candidates could have been much more beneficial to the Romney/Ryan campaign had the moderators not been guests of the VP and the White House within the past few days, weeks or months. Someone needs to go to the “woodshed” and come back with more useful tactics than what I am seeing. This message is from a very, very concerned voter who wants to live in a free country without worrying about what “Jug Ears” has planned for this country!!!!

That Crowley steppped in at all is outrageous. She should be reprimanded for this - but we know better don't we.

Did she step in to back up Romney on any of his facts? NO. But she did interrupt Romney repeatedly.

What Candy and Obama said on Libya defied two weeks of Obfuscation on the facts by the Administrations minions. The news for this period on the Libyan attack ran from the attack as an act of terrorism and those that payed attention know the Pres. lied and his people also lied.

Mark my words. We're going to find out that Obama knew in advance at least some of the questions, and had time to prepare specific sounding answers to them. Am I saying that Crowley lied at the beginning of the debate when she said that only she had seen the questions? Yes. That's exactly what I am saying.

Incidentally, some of the questions were absolutely terrible. Who in the hell decided which ones to allow? These "undecideds" were anything but undecided. Did you hear the applause when Candy sided, wrongly, with Obama on the Benghazi matter? And the anti-Bush question? What was that doing in the debate?

Republicans just can never get it into their head that liberals will cheat and lie as debate monitors. Crowley was given the freedom to select the questions; so she selected questions set up for Obama and questions negative for Romney. Of course she interrupted Romney many more times than Obama and allowed Obama 9% more time. Then broke in to stop Romney when he had Obama on the ropes with Libyia.

Liberals punish their own when they go off the reservation. If Crowley had not towed the line to assist Obama she would have been harangued mercilessly by liberal media, snubbed by friends and fellow professionals, looked down upon by her bosses at CNN and risked future plum assignments as well as few invites to the "right" Washington cocktail parties.

Crowley was well aware of this and few liberals can stand up against the liberal current. Republicans in the future should wake up and look at the real world.

Fox News's fact checker just labelled as bogus Candy Crowley's question on the "72 percent" differential between men's and women's pay. It seems that this "myth" (his words) came from the Census Department, where all full-time jobholders are lumped together and numbers run for compensation by gender regardless of the jobs held. By its own admission the Census Department's numbers are "loose".

Crowley: ''Gov. Romney, what distinguishes you from Geo. W. Bush? You know, the guy who my hero has been battling for the last four years.''

Crowley: ''Mr. President, what makes you most like Bill Clinton, Mahatma Ghandi, FDR, Abe Lincoln, George Washington and Jesus?''

I don't know which was worse last night. Having to put up with Crowley's obvious media bias as she shut down Romney's discussion about Fast and Furious and famously stepped in to rescue Barry's rear on Benghazi OR---- looking at her.

As an older woman I resent the Debate Commission and the media digging up the ugliest, most unkempt looking women they could possibly find. First Martha Ra-Ditz and now this Crowley witch.

Of course these debates have been rigged for the liberal. With MSM moderators how could they not be. The thing is Mitt won the first debate with a knockout and at worst he got a draw in this one. That means that for the series of three he can do no worse than a draw. Doing that in rigged debates against the incumbent is all he had to do. He has established himself as sufficiently presidential. Given Obama's record, he should win.

I think it was Krauthammer who said last night that Crowley was essentially functioning as Obama's teleprompter for him in the absence of a real one.
Obama can't fight one on one, and hiding beyond the nearest available woman seems to be a pattern - much as I suspect he has nothing but disdain for women in general - which makes it all the more ironic.
What a pathetic little punk.
Hides his personal life behind Michelle Robinson.
Hides from responsibility behind Hillary Clinton.
Crowley finishes his ''tests'' for him.
And Michelle again, leads an undeserved round of applause.
What a hero.

This situation is so easy to correct: There will always be two moderators, each candidate choosing one. There will be a large time clock, and huge penalties for usurping more that 50% of the total time used--say 20% penalty for each minute over the allotted time. Obama would have 60% penalty last night. He can blame his chosen moderator if he goes over. Moderators forbidden to intervene on behalf of his candidate on promise of permanent ban on ever being considered for moderating in the future. Ah, well. The current GOP elite will never have a backbone, but I can dream.

Hypothetical telephone conversation:
Hi Barry, Holder here. As we had expected, several of Romney's debate prep team left their batteries in their cell phones. My sources activated the wiretap feature and picked up their planning sessions. They plan to accuse you of not recognizing the Bengazi attack as terrorism.

So go ahead with plan A... Use the vague comment about "no acts of terror will yada yada" from the Rose Garden speech. Get a highlighted copy to Candy. She says she'll be watching for our info packet.

She promised to be on standby any time you use the phrase "check the transcript." Use that phrase, and she'll know to scold Romney and to affirm that you are correct.

We need Candy to get in at least one strong rebuke of Romney while appearing to be just fact-checking.

For those who heard the debate last night, below is a "reader's response" to an article about the Rose Garden speech Obama made. Check out the YouTube video. Did he call Bengahzi an act of terrorism? You be the judge.




Crowley and Obama are liars.
Watch the full 'rose garden' speech on 9/12/2012.

President Obama Speaks on the Attack on Benghazi
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Nu6VZ9DeVc

If you watch the full thing -- see that Obama was talking about 9/11/2001 just prior to referring to "Acts of Terror" -- this is a section of the speech after he announced the "attacks" by "killers" in Benghazi. It is clear he was referring to 9/11/2001 and general such “acts of terror” and did not define Benghazi in that way – and ALL of his and his administration’s words and behavior after that point referred to protests and a video as the cause of the Benghazi attacks for several weeks following.

The great part about Candy Crawly’s defense of the Won is that consciously or subconsciously the Libya mess/cover-up and the Bamster’s inept handling of it will remain in peoples’ minds. Bet Hillary is thinking she fell on O’s big stick for nothing, thanks to Ms. Crawly.

The debate transcript really highlights, in quite shocking
fashion , how often that Crowley stepped
in to shut down Romney and
fluff up Obama.
I thought Radditz was the worst moderator in history , Crowley now wears that title and the gold belt.
The pressure is now on Schieffer .
Next debate , he can act in a professional manner like Lehrer.
Or he can act like the women and make a national fool of himself.
The president of the United States often asked " Candy " to intervene and rescue him ,
which she always did.
I immediately found it strange that Obama directed Crowley to look at the transcript and her quick response indicated that she just happened to have that particular piece of paper right
in front of her.
It's hard to consider this coincidence and not collusion between the Obama campaign and Crowley.
Gallup is also going to get mud on them
if this turns out to be true.
Despite Crowley holding Obama's hand, Romney still dominated.
Rubin recognized that, unfortunately most at MSNBC lite ( except for Hannity, Greta and Rove ) seem
to be modeling themselves after Chuck Todd, even Hume.
C -Span is the best way to view the debates.
We get to decide.

It’s the bland leading the bland as Obamacare enrollment (sort of) ends. The front page of Monday’s Washington Post carries the headline “New fronts in health battle: Challenges after sign-up milestone.” (Yawn.) The pull quote inside on A-2 is “The unresolved issues mean it is far too soon to know how President Obama’s signature domestic achievement will turn out.” In that case, why use the word “achievement”? Did they describe the Iraq War as Bush´s "signature achievement"? In doing so, the Post sounds just like Obama adviser David Plouffe, whom they quoted from ABC saying “The law’s working” and it’s

FRANKFORT, Ky. — In one of the poorest areas of Appalachia, about 2,500 people have signed up to get health insurance over the last six months — a number that represents more than a tenth of Clay County’s residents. One-hundred-and-twenty miles way, the county’s state senator, Robert Stivers, is laying out his plans to gradually gut the Affordable Care Act in Kentucky, which provided his constituents with insurance. The soft-spoken 52-year-old Republican is hardly a fiery Tea Party type: He first joined the state Legislature in 1997 and slowly rose through the ranks to become the state Senate president. In

US autism estimate

The government’s estimate of autism has moved up again to 1 in 68 U.S. children, a 30 percent increase in two years. But health officials say the new number may not mean autism is more common. Much of the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift, with doctors diagnosing autism more frequently, especially in children with milder problems. “We can’t dismiss the numbers. But we can’t interpret it to mean more people are getting the disorder,” said Marisela Huerta, a psychologist at the New York-Presbyterian Center for Autism and the Developing Brain in suburban White Plains, N.Y.

The state with the most segregated public schools is New York. Other states with exceptionally segregated schools include California, Illinois and Michigan. These findings come from a longitudinal study of enrollment figures conducted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports. The period studied was 1998 through 2010. New York, California, Illinois and Michigan are traditionally among the most reliably Democratic states in the union, as an interactive 2012 map created by Slate shows.

A law firm hired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday that the governor was not involved in a plot to create gridlock near a major bridge as part of a political retribution scheme. The taxpayer-funded report released by former federal prosecutor Randy Mastro relies on interviews with Christie and other officials in his administration and 250,000 documents, many of them emails and text messages. "We found that Gov. Christie had no knowledge beforehand of this George Washington Bridge realignment idea," Mastro said at a news conference. His report comes out ahead of any results from independent investigations by federal prosecutors and

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

MSNBC’s ratings are sliding, according to a new Pew Research report. While primetime audiences are down for CNN, Fox News and MSNB, it is MSNBC that “dropped 11% to about 3 million, the smallest it has been since 2007.” The report continues, “The Nielsen Media Research data show that the biggest decline came at MSNBC, which lost nearly a quarter (24%) of its prime-time audience. CNN, under new management, ended . . . in third place, with a 13 percent decline in prime time. Fox, while down 6 percent, still drew more viewers (1.75 million) than its two competitors combined

Russian forces completed their take over of the Ukrainian navy’s assets in Crimea with the storming of the minesweeper Cherkessy. The Ukrainian navy has been reduced to only 10 vessels, with the other 51 it held at the beginning of this month, including its only submarine, now flying the Russian flag. But of all the Ukrainian military assets Russia has seized during the annexation, none is quite as unusual as the combat dolphin program. The Soviet Union began training dolphins and other marine mammals to locate mines, mark underwater and obstacles and detect – and if necessary kill – enemy frogmen in the

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

The horrific effect that drugs can have on addicts have been highlighted in a series of disturbing pictures and video. The photographs show American users of cocaine, heroin, oxy-codone and crystal meth in various stages of addiction. The before shots all show healthy-looking individuals prior to their becoming involved in substance abuse. The after shots show the same faces with terrible, blotchy skin, gaunt and hardened features, wrinkled skin and wild eyes. The campaign was launched by Rehabs.com, the organisation that ran the very successful Faces Of Meth campaign in 2012, which showed the devastating impact of meth addiction.

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
