Mitt Romney Schooled by President Obama and Candy Crowley

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

One of the highlights of last night’s presidential debate was this exchange between President Barack Obama and his challenger, Mitt Romney.

Mr. Romney tried and failed to politicize the tragic Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack on the U.S. Embassy that resulted in the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Romney insisted — incorrectly, that it took Obama 14 days to refer to the attack as a terrorist attack.

“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.”

In fact, Obama said the attack was an act of terror the next day in the White House Rose Garden.

“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.”

Even Candy Crowley, the debate moderator, fact-checked Romney and said that Obama “did in fact call it an “act of terror.”

The debate effectively was over at that moment and President Obama won.

    Romney came across as a schoolyard bully. You could see him coming in for the kill but President Obama turned the tables on him and knocked Romney on his ass. I agree, the debate was basically over at this moment. I think this will go down in debate history as a great moment.

  2. The Real Adam says:

    I read today the Romney camp is planning on filing a complaint with the Debate Commission.

    They think Candy Crowley favored President Obama over Mitt Romney. I find it interesting whenever Romney loses a debate he blames the female moderator. He definitely has issues with women.

  3. Brigadoon says:

    Ann Romney believes Mitt should be anointed president by now. Poor thing. She thinks her husband was chosen by God to be the leader of the Free World. Heffa is delusional.

  4. Unconditional1 says:

    Romney is a sniveling little spoiled brat who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. as an adult he comes across as a sniffy, arrogant dweeb!

    One more debate and then the election. I can’t wait to reelect President Barack Obama and send the Mormon back to obscurity. The presidency is one job Willard won’t be adding to his CV. The voters have made mistakes in the past (reelect Bush in 2004?) but they’re no so lame as to elect Romney.

  6. enchantedrocker says:

    Again, R-money displayed what a whiny little bitch he is by complaining about everything he possibly could. In demanding his fair share of “turns”, he proved that he keeps score with a vengeance and anyone who dares challenge him will incur his wrath (spitefulness, a get-even mentality). I was simply incredulous when he told President Obama, “Wait a minute, you’ll get your turn”. This is the true face of someone who feels “entitled” to what he has already amassed, and now he’s ready to go after what everyone has and make THAT his, too. He has obviously never had to compromise, nor has he ever wanted or needed something he didn’t or couldn’t have/get. Let’s show him what that feels like as we help President Obama win reelection.

    My favorite debate moment!

  8. Peace Nick says:

    Candy Crowley was excellent. What an improvement from Jim Leher.

    What was so great about last night’s debate is, the more President Obama pushed Willard, the more we got to see the essential man. He’s full of rage and not suited to be president. Meanwhile, Obama was kind, fiery and poised.

  9. feminazi says:

    Truth be told, I was too nervous to watch. I was fearful we would see a repeat of the first debate and I just couldn’t take it. Now that President Obama delivered a great debate, I will watch the repeat on CSPAN this weekend.

  10. The debate moderator is supposed to be a neutral third-party. Why did the moderator interject herself into the debate and fact-check one party if she is indeed neutral?

  11. DMason says:

    Martillo de Chicken – Crowley had to reign in Romney would came out of the gate to take charge of the debate. Romney broke the rules, interrupted Crowley and most troubling to me, interrupted the President of the United States. Romney behaved like a childish asshole.

  12. Seabec says:

    Obama delivered the goods. He was in rare form and basically squashed Romney. I almost felt sorry for Mitt. He revealed himself to be unsuitable for the presidency.

  13. Tiny Dancer says:

    Debate Number Two was Romney’s meltdown. Just stop and ponder for a moment what it would be like having this Bozo as president? Then compare and contrast him with the steady, even tempered Barack Obama?

  14. Randy Arroyo says:

    The best debate ever. Hands down. President Obama was fiery and forceful. Mitt Romney came across as a mean bully. Reelection for Mr. Obama should be a slam-dunk.

  15. ajihani says:

    President Obama made me proud. He walloped Romney and I cheered.
