Candy Crowley: Romney Was Right

After the debate, moderator and self-appointed fact checker, Candy Crowley, said on CNN that Mitt Romney was actually “right in the main” but “picked the wrong word”on how the Obama administration handled the attacks in Libya.

Here is the transcript from the debate where Crowley interrupted Romney when he discussed Libya

ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.

OBAMA: Get the transcript.

CROWLEY: It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. So let me — let me call it an act of terror…

OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?

CROWLEY: He — he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.

    Candy Crowley doesn’t want to call this a terrorist attack either. She calls it a riot that just went bad. She was totally in the tank for Obama and shame on her. I hope she never gets a chance to hold another presidential debate again. Furthermore Romney blew it by not asking the question about if Obama knew in fact that what happened in Libya was a terrorist attack then why in fact did he not clearly explain that and why did he for several weeks continue to state that the attack was committed by an angry mob that was despondent over a video if he knew otherwise?

    The actual questions was “Who dropped the ball in not providing extra security when asked for it.” Neither candidate answered to that question. As a matter of fact, there were more questions that were avoided. One was equal pay for women…POTUS turned that into a discussion on contraception. Another was the man who essentially asked POTUS: based on your performance thus far and the fact that I am disappointed in you, why should I vote for you a second time? He didn’t give a clear answer to that…he essentially told the guy that he was actually better off but just didn’t know it and Romney reinforced what he’s done wrong. POTUS also said that “we” are all in the same boat…but in actuality, his net worth has grown 600% in the last 3 years. How someone making $400K a year can accrue $10M in 3 years is beyond me….he must be one heck of an investor because I cannot imagine all that came from book sales….and certainly he isn’t getting paid for speaking engagements.
