Candy Crowley bias aids Obama lies, Romney succeeds despite Crowley’s efforts to select questions fact check Libya terror statement and cut off Romney, Crowley awarded 5 Orwells

“It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. … He did call it an act of terror.”…Candy Crowley

“But Crowley and Obama had it wrong. the Post’s Glenn Kessler explained:

What did Obama say in the Rose Garden a day after the attack in Libya? ”No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this nation,” he said.
But he did not say “terrorism”—and it took the administration days to concede that that it an “act of terrorism” that appears unrelated to initial reports of anger at a video that defamed the prophet Muhammad.”…Washington Post Oct. 17, 2012

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984”

This is a teachable moment. Candy Crowley’s performance in the Obama Romney debate last night was predictable. She has a history of liberal slant, she is a member of the mainstream media and she works for CNN.

Are there enough intelligent, informed and concerned Americans left out there to discern the truth? Obama lied again and Candy Crowley helped him.

From the Washington Times October 17, 2012.

“Another debate, another debacle for America’s media.

In the runup to the second presidential debate, CNN’s Candy Crowley declared that she would not just be a “fly on the wall” as she played the tiny role of moderator, that she would step in whenever she chose to say, “Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?”

And boy did she, cutting off Republican Mitt Romney repeatedly and often throwing the floor to President Obama with an open “let me give the president a chance here.”

More, she alone decided the topics for the debate, picking questions from the 80 so-called “undecided” voters chosen by the Gallup polling organization. Her selections were tailor-made for Mr. Obama — Mitt Romney’s tax plan, women’s rights and contraception, outsourcing, immigration, the Libya debacle (which gave Mr. Obama to finally say that the buck stops with him, not, as Hillary Clinton said, with her).

She even chose this question, directed to both men: “I do attribute much of America’s economic and international problems to the failings and missteps of the Bush administration. Since both of you are Republicans, I fear the return to the policies of those years should you win this election. What is the biggest difference between you and George W. Bush, and how do you differentiate yourself from George W. Bush?”

Ms. Crowley, who called Mr. Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as running mate a “ticket death wish,” asserted her unilateral power at the outset, telling the audience before the cameras went on that she planned to “give the debate direction and ensure the candidates give answers to the questions.”

After both candidates answered Question One, she blurted: “Let me get a more immediate answer” — whatever that means. But when Mr. Romney sought to correct falsehoods told by the president, she cut him off: “We have all these folks here.” In the end, Mr. Obama would get 9 percent more time.

At Question Two, Mr. Obama, asked by Mr. Romney how much he had cut federal oil permits, took over the floor — with Ms. Crowley’s silent approval. “Here’s what happened,” he said as he filibustered for a full minute. Mr. Romney sought to get the last word — as the president had the question before — but the moderator shut him down: “It’ doesn’t quite work like that.”

When Mr. Romney sought to counter Mr. Obama’s assertion after Question Three, Ms. Crowley again cut him off: “Before we get into a vast array….” she said before asking a completely different question.

The next question was pure Obama — workplace inequality (the president mention at every stop his Lily Ledbetter legislation). But the query gave him the platform to demand Americans pay for contraception for all women, saying the governor “feels comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the health care choices that women are making.”

For the record, Mr. Obama spoke for two minutes, then Mr. Romney, then Mr. Obama again. Ms. Crowley then rushed into the next question.

When the immigration question came up, both candidates gave their answers. Then the moderator once again butted in, ordering Mr. Romney to “speak to the idea of self-deportation.”

By then, Mr. Romney had had enough, and talked over her demands. “No, let — let — let me go back and speak to the points the president made and — and — and let’s get them correct.”

At the next question, the moderator lost all control. “Candy,” Mr. Obama said. “Hold on.” “Mr. President,” the governor said, “I’m still speaking.” They mixed it up for a bit, then Ms. Crowley said: “Sit down, Mr. Romney.”

The most shocking exchange took place on the Benghazi attack that left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others dead.

Mr. Romney: “You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror? It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you’re saying.”

Mr. Obama made no defense. “Please proceed, governor.”

“I want to make sure,” Mr. Romney said. “Get the transcript,” the president said. Then Ms. Crowley jumped in to do her own fact-check, on the spot. “It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. … He did call it an act of terror.”

The truth is, he didn’t. The day after the attack, he said only this: “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” It took another two weeks before the White House would label the attack an act of terror.

The Obama people, of course, loved it — having blamed Mr. Obama’s dismal performance in the first debate on poor moderating.

“He’s back,” said Team O spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who lauded Ms. Crowley for her fact checking.

But then she caught herself and quickly added: “He was never really gone, but he’s back.””

  1. I sincerely hope that many Americans see this for what it is. The mainstream media propping up the empty chair & Obama caught lying again. I was pleased to find the Washington Post reporting the truth.

  2. All the “conservative” talking heads apparently didn’t pick up on the substance that even the panels of formerly pro-Obama or undecideds did….even on MSNBC…..were swayed towards….Romney after this Candyland debate.

  3. Crowley: Obama’s Teleprompter Substitute
    October 17, 2012
    President Obama’s weak performance in the first presidential debate could be attributed to the absence of a teleprompter. He was provided with a flesh and blood teleprompter in the shape of Candy Crowley for the second debate. More

  5. CW, America won’t see the issues for what they are because many people on the fences most likely switched stations. The blatant militant display the goons in the White House planned for weeks was nauseating enough to tune out.

    The Soetoro camp now knows Romney was prepared and trained for a Chicago-style debate. Barry fell back on the one technique they thought would win them serious brownie points. Unfortunately for them, they lost. Big time. If the best they could do was lock horns in a rigged debate, they are going to lose. That’s the last grab for power right out of the Chicago Thug Handbook. If you can’t beat them, throw your weight around and churn up negative emotions.

    There is one last play in their Chicago Thug Handbook. And it’s all about mudslinging. It will be an interesting 3 weeks.

    Bob, that is an excellent article at American Thinker. I thought that it was very peculiar that when confronted by Romney about O’s statement in the Rose Garden, immediately O said something to Candy to the effect, “You have the transcript….” How would he know that she had it? Talk about Candy, the teleprompter! It was such a setup. Then later she had to eat crow and retract her statement. Hmmm………CROW.ley.

  7. Debate summary:

    Christians v Muslims

    Capitalists v Communists

  8. Looks like Ms. Candy redeemed herself from being #1 on Mooch’s “Let’s Move” hit list!

  9. BTW, an interesting? side point is that in the mock debate practice for Obama, guess who took the role of moderator? Anita Dunn, the idol-worshipper of the murderous Mao. I had read it and then saw her marching along with Obama very businesslike towards probably the rehearsal site.

    Last night was the poorest excuse of a debate I’ve ever seen. Romney showed grace under fire and yet persevered with his strong points. There are mice and men. Romney showed that he is a real man, while Obama was……….well, ……the other.

    In dealing with the leaders of our worst enemies, Romney, imo, could be trusted to stand up and take no nonsense in the style of Reagan. If he could handle O and Candy like he did last night, he has the mettle to handle almost anything he might face on the world stage.

  10. Cliff Kincaid:

    “Obama’s Media Allies Struggle to Conceal Red Mentor”

    “A liberal writer named Elspeth Reeve, who writes for The Atlantic magazine, frets that Barack Obama’s relationship to Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis is getting more attention from voters and may constitute an “October surprise” that dooms the President’s re-election chances. She calls Davis only an “alleged communist” when in fact he was a card-carrying CPUSA member with a 600-page FBI file.

    Her story goes further downhill from there, clearly suggesting that Obama’s media backers are worried and desperate to conceal the truth.

    Practicing a new form of damage control, she acknowledges that “Davis was important to Obama,” because the evidence of the relationship cannot be denied, but claims that “Obama doesn’t seem to have been important to Davis.” …”

  11. Some hope?

    [EXCLUSIVE] 77% likelihood Romney wins popular vote, according to famous U of Colorado study

    The University of Colorado (CU) prediction renowned for perfect accuracy will predict a popular-vote win for Mitt Romney later this month, Campus Reform has learned.

    The poll has accurately predicted every presidential election since it was developed in 1980. It is unique in that it employs factors outside of state economic indicators to predict the next president.

    CU Political Science Professor Dr. Michael Berry, who spoke with Campus Reform at length on Tuesday, said there is at least 77 percent chance that Romney will win the popular vote.

    Professor Michael Berry from the University of Colorado told Campus Reform in an exclusive interview that there is a 77 percent chance Romney will win the popular vote.
    “Our model indicates that Governor Romney has a 77 percent likelihood of winning the popular vote,” said Berry.

    That number is significant, not only in its size, but because of the fact that only four presidents since the nation’s founding have won the presidency without capturing the popular vote, the last being George W. Bush in 2000.

    Threats to Assassinate Romney Explode After Debate

  13. There was something about the debate that troubled me on a deeper level than the obvious. I wasn’t sure what that was at first. So I had to do some meditation–let things settle.

    For awhile I was stationed in a unit in Germany in an assignment that was outside my usual work. I was assigned to a unit that had a drug and alcohol problem and was assigned to assist as a drug and alcohol education specialist. This involved a rehabilitation for those who could handle it and elimination from the service for those who couldn’t.

    As a result, I saw a lot of addicts and alcoholics–got to know them pretty well. (The disease model, by the way, given by Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous can work for rehabilitation and is the only known treatment with consistent rehabilitative results.)

    Anyway, I finally had to face what I observed that had nothing to do with content of the debate, except that untreated addicts are chronic liers. Obama acted like an addict not in rehab–just maybe “dry” for the moment. The look in his eyes, his mental fuzziness, his plopping in his chair right at the start, and yes, his addiction to lies over and over again–his overall “vibe”–reminded me of burnouts on coke and other drugs I have dealt with.

    I was really demoralized after this debate, really depressed, and I didn’t know why. Romney was a gentleman and a man. But the President? I felt pity and embarassment for him as I did for him during the first debate.

    The media pundists are all trying to cover for him. In addition, however, to being a Muslim Communist, he is, in my view, a drug addict. That is sad. That means a lot of very, very bad things. He is not his own person.

  14. Whistleblower

    Keep an eye on this, it is about damage control for Obama. This is about keeping the Jackson’s silent about what they know about the Obama’s And how Patrick Fitzgerald and the Tribune protect Obama..

    Latest Jackson Jr. probe clouds political, legal future

    As Obama’s cover story comes down, the curtain goes up on the USAO’s cover-up of J.J., Jr.’s role in the Blago story

    An October Surprise
    One of your presidential candidates isn’t being honest with you. Stay tuned to find out which one it is.

  16. Isn’t this pitifull? Candy has identified herself as a liar and cheat before millions for of all history. She traded her credibility for a worthless piece of turd. The whole world now knows forever that Candy Crowley’ slutted’ herself, her honor, an even her career for a traitor. What does that make her? Candy Crowley is now a name synonymous with liar, cheater, traitor, and whore.

  17. CitizenWells,
    I searched on the internet to see if Candy Crowley was part of the infamous Journ-o-list email group that was subversive in the last election. I did not find a specific reference to her name on the internet, but I don’t have the entire Journ-o-list group listing. This is the last update on American Thinker.

    I’m going to stick my neck out and guess that Candy Crowley was part of the Journ-o-list group, but managed (for obvious reasons) to keep he name from becoming public. The conspiracy in the Media now requires government investigation, much like the communists were investigated in the 1950’s, as it has become a national security problem. ESPECIALLY if the attack in Libya was a administration staged Red Flag to give Obama what Jimmy Carter lacked before re-election (hostages that were returned) and degraded into a murderous debacle.


  18. Did anyone notice the deep scars on Obama’s head last night?

    Could that have been the results of a serious car wreck in Hawaii in 1980?

    There is a police report for a Bari Shabazz for a serious car accident in Hawaii in 1980. The open case was closed in 2003, shortly before Obama ran for public office.

    Is there a connection here?

  19. Pete……………
    I would suspect that to search the past of MMMMMSSSSS. Crowley you would only have to enter “Female liberal activist dirigibles” into
    your search engine…….alias (LARD A$$), then hit SEARCH.

  20. RMINNC…………..
    It would seem to me that somebody with a few bucks to spend could go to Hawaii and make some quiet inquiries at the various EMERGENCY hospitals,or at the hospitals that handled most of the emergencies in the eighties, and maybe for a couple of bucks more or a joint, you might even come away with some documentation. Hawaii has a real drug problem,and the uasers always NEED MONEY…….I am sure there are a few who work at emergency hospitals. A druggie will sell their very souls.

  21. “After Klein shut down JournoList, a new group, calling itself “Cabalist” was started by Jonathan Cohn of The New Republic, Michelle Goldberg and Steven Teles, a professor of political science at Johns Hopkins University. The group, which had 173 members by late July, was made up mostly of former JournoList members. Its existence managed to stay secret for several weeks, until The Atlantic magazine correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg revealed its existence in a blog post on July 21. Goldberg reported that one recent discussion concerned whether or not members should ignore the articles on The Daily Caller website. “In other words, members of Journolist 2.0 were debating whether to collectively respond to a Daily Caller story alleging—inaccurately, in their minds—that members of Journolist 1.0 (the same people, of course) made collective decisions about what to write”.”
    “Is Putative President Barack Hussein Obama II Really Bari Shabazz, Fugitive from Justice For 21 Years Following An Auto Accident in Honolulu County, Hawaii on March 12, 1982?”

  22. Such a slash in someone’s scalp would have required suturing. I am doubtful that Soetoro sewed up his own scalp. If he was admitted to an ER there would be a record of his visit. Just a matter of convincing somebody on the inside to take a lengthy,and quiet look. A medical person having a drug problem would be ripe fodder…..and probably for hire.

  23. Did anyone notice those deep lines on Obummers face from nostril to lip line seemed not as deeply etched? And his makeup was lighter and less orange than usual, and the hair was more neutral…a gray mixed with a sandy color? I think a good part of his prep was botox and a make over. Don’t know for sure, but read that most of the audience were comprised of Obummer voters. I felt Romney did so well considering he faced hositility on all fronts…had to debate against Crowley, Obummer, and Crowley’s hand picked, hand chosen questions from the group on the stage, AND endure the audience led into forbidden applause by Mooch several times.

  24. Could the OCTOBER SURPRISE be the American people will finally be treated with undeniable proof as to exactly who this fraud in the White House is ?

    I think the American people, black, white, yellow, and red, will be very angry when his REAL identity is finally presented.

    Were I in Obama’s shoes, I would have a very hard time sleeping at night, knowing this was hanging over my head, and that eventually it would be exposed.

  25. I agree with Rush.
    Romney won the debate.
    I will add.
    Obama was a better hustler.

  26. Hi Kiltie and RM,

    Yes, I noticed how horrible he looked; ashen complexion, gray hair, and oh, that deep scar on the left side of his head just above his ear. He looked emaciated.

    I’m thinking that he’s either on a steady supply of drugs, or is very sick. It was pathetic to watch him last night, both physically and intellectually; the lies were coming at a ‘Fast and Furious’ pace and it seemed at times that his balance was off.

    Just goes to show what happens when your life is a total lie.

  27. I agree Oldsailor……..for a price, you can get anything in Hawaii….

    It is very odd that a young man named Beri Shabazz did have a serious car accident in Hawaii in 1980, and it is very odd the outstanding warrant for Mr. Shabazz was finally settled in 2003, right before a man named Obama ran for public office in Chicago.

    It is also very odd the young man named Beri Shabazz came up listed as DEAD, shortly after Barack H. Obama was listed as a candidate for public office, However, no cause of death, no death certificate for Beri Shabazz, no place of internment, no witnesses, no announcements….no nothing. Now this sounds like the Chicago way of doing things too me.

    Personally, I think SOMEONE bought a fake birth certificate for a Mr. Barack Hussain Obama, and a death certificate for a Mr. Beri Shabazz.

    The truth will come out.

  28. I agree with you CW……Obama was the better HUSTLER……

    Hustling is a MAJOR for the “Community Organizer Degree” at Harvard.

    You are too kind to the creature Crowley.

  30. Candy Alt Crowley was clearly assisting President Obama to win the second debate .She gave the President a time edge and seemed to care about time when Mitt Romney was speaking.

    Moreover when President Obama avoided to answer the Libya question directly the debate moderator Candy Alt Crowley kept silent and made it easier for Mr President to modify the question the way he intended. It is sad to see the debate moderator supporting one party on Live Tv in a coverage that is having a national significance .

    Presidential debates are important for the Americans and debate moderators should honor that . I am disappointed by Candy Alt Crowley performance as I expected her to be more neutral during the whole process.

  31. RMINNC…………..
    There is something else about Hawaii that isn’t generally known. It has more JAPANESE living there than Polynesians. Just the surnames tell the story….NISHIMURA, FUKINO…..I could go on,and on.

  32. Time for me to go home, sold most of my woodworking machinery today. Once my personal property is gone then I am out of here at least until I can acquire a computer for my apartment.

  33. Sam Eliot, (a great American Texan) comments on:
    The Government’s Slow Response to an Emergency

    “While hiking down along the border this morning, I saw a Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River. He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying.

    Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of a backpack strapped to his back that was full of drugs.

    If they didn’t get help soon, they’d surely drown.

    Being the patriotic citizen that I am, I notified the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, the Border Patrol, and the Homeland Security.

    It’s now 4 p.m. and I have not heard from any of the agencies I notified. I’m beginning to think I wasted three stamps.”

    OldSalt, It is SO good to see your posts again! We’ve missed you and are looking forward to when you can get set up with your own computer. God bless!!

  35. RMinNC,
    Great joke!! You are on a roll today.
    Personally I take Dean M.’s assessment of Obama’s condition last night very seriously – That he well could be a drug addict. What a combo! Marxist Muslim and drug addict. We have heard before from various sources, that he never quit the coke. Remember all of the itchy nose episodes while he would be speaking in the past? Need I say that this piece of humanity is about the worst that could be in the W.H. if for nothing else but national security reasons.

  36. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,

    “until I can acquire a computer for my apartment”

    Maybe there’s a Government program………………………….

    Just kidding, it’s been great seeing your posts again oldsailor. We ALL wish the best for you, and care about you in a personal way. You come across as a FRIEND. I’ve always thought that a FRIEND tells you what you NEED to hear, and NOT what you WANT to hear. And you do that. Thank you.


    I just can’t believe the most BLATANT LIE of the night.

    That being:

    “As most of you know, I was RAISED BY A SINGLE MOTHER”.

    I mean come on people, how can you not see as clear as the nose on all of our faces, how much of a MADE UP STORY this man is?

    According to wikipedia Stanley was married to Sr from 1961 to 1964 (although we ALL know they didn’t live as husband and wife), and she married Lolo in 1965 and stayed married to him until 1980.

    So from the time Obama was born, until AFTER he turned 19, Stanley wasn’t SINGLE except for one year. And on top of THAT, Obama was sent back to Hawaii at the age of 10 to be raised by his Grandparents. Stanley STILL lived in Indonesia in 1981 when Obama went to Pakistan, because according to the “story” Obama stopped in Indonesia for a month on the way to Pakistan, when he PROBABLY as a citizen of Indonesia, aquired an Indonesian passport for his travel to Pakistan.

    But Obama wasn’t raised by a “single mother”. He was raised by Stanley (as best as we can figure) for the first 4 years of his life, then was raised by Stanley and Lolo until he was 10 and then was raised by his Grandparents until he went to Occidental.

    I just can NOT understand how this media can let such a BLATANT LIE go without answer.

    And Romney isn’t doing himself any favors by allowing this LIE to go unanswered.

    As John Bradshaw Leyfield on Monday Night Raw says:


  37. Dear Old Salt,
    Please remember you can use the computers at the public libraries! WE love hearing from you. I’m so sorry that you are going thru such difficulties. Know that you are in our prayers.
