AWFUL. CNN Moderator Jumps In to Defend Obama During Presidential Debate (Video) …Update: Gave Obama 9% More Time

Awful. At the Hofstra Presidential Debate Candy Crowley jumped in to defend Barack Obama. Crowley said Obama called the Benghazi massacre a terror attack in Rose Garden the day after the slaughter.

He didn’t.
And five days later, despite having video of the massacre, the Obama Administration pushed the lie that it was a protest gone bad.

Candy Crowley gave Obama 9% more time and consistently interrupted Mitt Romney.
What a disgrace.

    Obama never called it a terror attack….all said it was the video!!!!!

  • StandUpChuck

    Candy bar lied to cover obamas ass, complete bs. Wtf is she defending him for?

  • NeonKoan

    From Obama’s rose garden remarks:

    “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. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”

    ..So yes. He did. Have fun on the 7th!

  • JT

    I guess she didn’t read the transcript either. Sure sounds like he was blaming the YouTube video. The official transcript from the White House website:

    “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”

    At the bottom of the speech, after he blamed YouTube:

    “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.”

    Wow. What a forceful condemnation of Muzzy terrorism.

    He really did not specifically call it a terrorist attack in Benghazi but only used the word “terror” to speak generally.

    “Words have meaning”.
    Since it was another 14 days or so before he called it a terrorist attack after calling it something else. Did he tell the truth before he and others told the lies?

  • Sam Stone

    AND Obama tonight called it “a crime” which is telling since he wants to treat terrorism as crimes and not acts of war.

  • The key part where is blames it on the tape is

    “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.”

    He was blaming the attacks on the video for not respecting Islam.

  • Mad Hatter

    She lied for Obama. Obama never called it a terrorist attack while he was in the Rose Garden.

    He called it an “attack” “shocking and outrageous attack”, a “terrible act” but not a terrorist attack.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rKC_dzl3ksA

  • That quote above is paragraph 4, where act or terror comes 6 paragraphs later in paragraph 10.

  • Lilbby

    NeonKoan apparently can’t comprehend what he reads. Go take a reading comprehension class. Obama said no such thing about the Bengazi attack in that statement, and all the other lies he said REPEATEDLY FOR DAY AFTER about some dumbass video that didn’t have a damn thing to do with it say the real story. Nice try, nitwit.

    HUGE BREAKING NEWS: OMFG: OBAMA LIED AND CROWLEY SWORE TO IT: OBAMA DID NOT UTTER THE WORD TERROR AT THE ROSEGARDEN SPEECH!

    HERE’S HIS ENTIRE STATEMENT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE:

    I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.
    I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.
    On a personal note, Chris was a courageous and exemplary representative of the United States. Throughout the Libyan revolution, he selflessly served our country and the Libyan people at our mission in Benghazi. As Ambassador in Tripoli, he has supported Libya’s transition to democracy. His legacy will endure wherever human beings reach for liberty and justice. I am profoundly grateful for his service to my Administration, and deeply saddened by this loss.The brave Americans we lost represent the extraordinary service and sacrifices that our civilians make every day around the globe. As we stand united with their families, let us now redouble our own efforts to carry their work forward.

    OBAMA SAID AT THE DEBATE, THAT HE “CALLED THE ATTACK ON BENGHAZI AN ACT OF TERROR THE DAY AFTER THE ATTACK DURING HIS STATEMENT IN THE ROSE GARDEN” AND THE TRUTH IS HE MOST CERTAINLY DID NOT.

    SO OBAMA LIED IN THE DEBATE – AND CROWLEY SWORE TO IT!

    IF OBAMA DIDN’T LIE THEN HE’D HAVE NOT A FREAKIN. THING TO SAY.

    REPEAT: ROMNEY WAS RIGHT ON THE FACTS AND OBAMA WRONG. OBAMA LIED TONIGHT.

    ROMNEY WAS RIGHT.

    AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, OBAMA MISHANDLED THE ENTIRE BENGHAZI AFFAIR.

    Obama never said it was a terrorist attack when he was asked about it on The View.

    That was September 25th, 13 days after his Rose Garden statement.

  • Highlander

    The way I read it, Obama was simply doing what all politicians do … fence sitting. He covered all the bases by blaming religious intolerance (the video) and then going on to infer , without really saying it, that it was terrorism. Personally, I don’t think the semantics of this particular statement are really the issue …

    To me, there are two bigger issues. First, our embassy was left unprotected and poorly prepared for a threat that was obvious and well documented. Secondly, that the State Department ran with the YouTube explanation for days afterwards, in an obvious attempt to play down the fact that this was 9/11 style terrorism. THOSE are the issues that they need to HAMMER on ….

    Why, oh why do Republicans keep on tolerating this crap? Regardless of whether the Republican candidate is more than capable of holding his/her own against a biased “moderator”, there is no reason whatsoever to keep on allowing this sort of thing to keep occurring.

    Obama diminished himself with lies and sharky comments. He was appealing to EMOTION rather than trying to sell with facts. He was unable to connect or convince voters he has anything but more of the same.

    Romney kept his cool, defended his record, and called out Obama’s record of failure in very detailed, measured tones. There is no way that Obama can defend what he has done to this country with his failed policies.

    Advantage Romney.

    Now, Obama has a LOT of explaining to do. AFTER that Rose Garden admission, he addressed the UN and repeatedly blamed the YouTube video, and then he let the State Department run around for another week spouting the same nonsense, trying to convince the American people that this was NOT another 9/11 style terrorist attack.

    This man is a shameless liar. He is obviously willing to do or say ANYTHING to get reelected. I hope the pundits make hay with this over the next few days …

    Transcript = “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. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”

    Commentary = “No acts of terror will…” is a general reference to any act of terror. Whereas when he describes “…this terrible act” he is referring to the BENGHAZI circumstance which he did not describe as a terrorist act.

    Combine that with his Press Secretary who in response to a question asking “What happened at Benghazi” said at 9/14/2012 press conference ” We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive.”

    Q At Benghazi? What happened at Benghazi? MR. CARNEY: We certainly don’t know. We don’t know otherwise. We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive. And while the violence is reprehensible and unjustified, it is not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of, or to U.S. policy.

    In the same press conference CARNEY said:

    CARNEY: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.

    Candy Crowley, Moderator:
    -repeatedly refuses to let Romney rebut Obama, giving Obama the last word
    -repeatedly interrupts Romney
    -allows Obama to interrupt her and continue his answer, but not so for Romney
    -selects a question tying Romney to Bush (is it 2008 again?!)
    -gives Obama 9% more time
    -defends Obama’s lie about whether Libya was a terrorist attack (then changes her story AFTER the debate)

    YET, Romney still destroys Obama on the economy, jobs, taxes, deficit and “who has a better vision for America”

  • we have had three debates, in each one the democrat was allowed more time to speak, the moderator was biased in favor of the democrat constantly interrupting or cutting off the republican. when the debate schedule was announced everyone that comments here knew this was going to happen, but somehow no one at the RNC had a clue. obama is not the only incompetent politican out there.

  • Obama danced all around calling Benghazi terrorism the next day.

    http://bluecollarphilosophy.com/2012/10/obama-and-crowley-grossly-exaggerate-obama-calling-benghazi-an-act-of-terror-video/

    Obama in his White House speech is referring to general acts of terror, not specifically calling Benghazi an act of terror, he missed that chance at the start of the video by calling them “violent” and “brutal”. That was the time to call the a terrorist act. Obama then further softens the usage of the word by calling it a “terrible act”. A lot of things can be such an act but not terrorism. Mitt Romney was right on this.

    Obama “acts of terror” @ I:53 mark..

    seriously, if Obama did say that, then he has just tightened the
    noose around his own neck, and CC helped him do while millions
    watched and listened..

    Obama can NEVER say he didn’t know that the consulate was attacked
    by terrorists on September 11, 2012, not that we didn’t already know
    that he already knew on September 4, 2012, and have proof of it, but
    it’s a beautiful thing when the truly guilty admit they LIED, even if, and
    especially when, they don’t realize it..

    September 14, 2012

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed
    that White House officials apparently received warnings that there
    were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the
    Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early as September 4
    . Sources also revealed that additional warnings were received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]

    also posted another link, not that it’s needed, but

    First off, the president was absolutely correct in his comment when he said it was an act of terror…look at the transcript/video of that rose garden speech and it clearly says “no acts of terror”. Secondly, the speech he presented the next day also include the line “no act of terror” so all of you from a technical standpoint are incorrect as those were the words Obama did use. Now in how you read into them is different, not once in the debate did he say that an act of terror = terrorist attack…he simply stated that he would discover what happened, said it was an act of terror (usually related to a violent societal/war crime) and that he would go after those who did it. You may say what you like about Candy Crowley’s position on the matter but you in reality the reason there was “more time” alotted to the president is because he had more to say. Most of Romney’s comments were “filler” with no direct points or meanings. He did not describe anything, he basically reiterated what most basic economic models state however, did not give a foundational reasoning as to how it would happen…numbers = proof and his numbers do not work. So yes, think what you like about how the act of terror line is perceived, but when Obama mentioned he had said that he was not lying as those were his words.

    A note to everyone…you can pull up the; September 12, 2012 Rose Garden Speach,
    on youtube. It is right there. Obama was refering to the 2001 terriost attack when mentioning the word “terrior.”
    I’ve been watching and listening, every single day, since the day of the “terriost attack” on our American Embasy and as everyone with ears, half a brain and any shred of common sense knows, it took almost 2 weeks before it was stated that, and I forget the exact words used, basically; Um, DUH! It was obviously a terriost attack! After covering up what really happened that whole time. I swear, this guy who is our president, his administration and the awful lying for Obama media BANK ON people are not paying attention!!!! So, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!!!

    It is obvious that Obama was speaking in generalities when he used the phrase “acts of terror”. Specifically what Romney said was that Obama did not say an act of terror, which would have been specifically talking about Benghazi. The President and his handlers use this kind of wording all the time. It allows them to twist statements. Notice how tonight he manned up and said ultimately he was responsible to inadequate security AFTER Hillary said that she is responsible. This is another tactic. Spread out blame and take no action.

    The real injustice (among other things) is that Candy Crowley will be able to walk this back and salvage her reputation with a dismissive liberal apology, but only a fraction of the people will ever hear about it. The damage is done.

    And that’s the liberal style of politics. Put out the lie, put out the lie.
    Apologize only if absolutely necessary, and only then in a dismissive way.
    But rest easy in the knowledge the lie will reach more people than the apology.

    RNC, what is your problem? Stop agreeing to these same libs moderating our debates over and over. Conservatives are half the country. We deserve to have at least half the debates moderated by conservatives.

    Conservative moderators are fair, liberal moderators show bias. There is no way to have a moderator who can offset the liberal bias of other moderators.

    And thanks for nothing talking heads at FOX News. I’ve been saying for a while, we need an all-Conservative news network, not a “fair and balanced” one. No Juan Williams, Kirsten Powers, Joe Trippi, and no squishes like Brit Hume and Bill O’Reilly alternately inflating and deflating our side. We’re tired of it already.

    time mark: you hear her at 0:56 but see her at 0:58/59

    One other observation on last nights debate. . .

    Though Obama showed up this time unlike Denver two weeks ago. . .the person we saw was not the likable sincere guy or the presidential man. . rather he was a lying angry bull$#!++er. . . .

    Notice in the debate, when Obama had to defend his record or explain what he did or how it has helped Americans or the country he stuttered and rambled in a very quite tone yet when attacking Romney, out-right lying or spewing propaganda he was loud and aggressive and in his game. . .

    Why? because he acted natural in what he was most comfortable with. . .Because Obama has contempt for us as Americans

    His mama said so on p 47 of DREAMS FROM MY FATHER written by Obama
    When asked by her Indonesian Husband to join him at dinners and functions with fellow Americans, Obama’s mama said “They are NOT HIS People”

    Ergo, he is NOT our President and come November 6 2012, the world will see!

    Imagine Obama negotiating with Russia or China. . who would be there to help him Like Crowley did last night?

    Romney has next debate in a week on Foreign policy. . .

    – Needs to nail Libya fiasco
    – Fort Hood as a terrorist attack
    – and link strong defense to a strong economy. . . to go back & attack Obamacare (2700 pages to his Romneycare only 70 pages)
    – How vulnerable we are to oil disruptions since Obama killed canadian pipeline or preventing drilling or killing coal

    But most of all, needs to highlight how under Obama we have Jimmy Carter II. .on steroids!!!!

    Romney needs to stay focused on the BIG Issues. .

    Romney will win on the issues because Romney knows how to solve problems and run a business. . not just agitate like a community organizer who plays too much golf. . .

    I do think Romney could have done even better during last night’s debate by being clearer and more direct with the issues. . . and create more gap and distance between him and Obama’s failed record.

    On Healthcare, Romney needed to say to Americans when Obama touted that they copied Romneycare from Massachusetts:

    Mr President, how then did you take my Bill of 70 pages and turn it into 2,700 pages that no one read before passing. .that we are still trying to figure out?
    or
    Mr President, under your bill there are so many NEW taxes on the Middle class, that you will be way above the Clinton rates you keep proposing
    or
    Mr President, Waiting for care under your plan will be worse than standing in line at TSA checkpoints in airports with long queues while lanes sit idle and are unstaffed. . .or where you interrogate 80 year old granny and her colostomy bag but give a pass to a young middle eastern male with an underwear bomb

    And on Leadership, Romney should have hit the message home. . .
    Mr president, under your leadership these past four years, we have Jimmy Carter II. . on steroids with unemployment skyrocketing and jobs declining as well as our dollar and credit rating while world spins out of control and our embassies are attacked, stormed and an Ambassador is killed.

    In a recent interview, you gave yourself an incomplete for a grade. .
    looks more like an “F” for failure!

    Think Jimmy Carter II . . on steroids

    Crowly even tried to help Obama with gas price . .Obama has no clue what the price per gallon is. .only that he want’s it to be closer to Europe’s $7+/gal. . .

    When there is an “attack” on an embassy, and it is referred to as “an act of terror” by the President, it means “terrorist attack.” And who cares about the semantics. Our Embassy asked for help, they were denied help. It isn’t like no one in the white house didn’t know what was going on. The current administration is in chaos (big signs everywhere). They don’t know how business works, they don’t know what the other hand is doing so they resort to blaming. Obama thinks he is RobinHood…steal from the Rich and give to the Looters. That doesn’t make a country strong, it bankrupts them and makes them weak. Mitt understands the fundamentals of making a country strong. Obama knows how to spend other people’s money and blame…

    That hog had no right to interrupt a presidential debate! If Obama can’t defend himself in a debate how can he defend US citizens on acts of terror or “reactions to you tube videos”.

    NeonKoan, your comment:
    _______________________

    From Obama’s rose garden remarks:

    “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. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”

    ..So yes. He did. Have fun on the 7th!

    Incorrect.

    Obama was referencing the 9/11 attacks as “acts of terror.” He described Benganzi as a “terrible act.”
