Obama's Candy
American Spectator, by George Neumayr

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/17/2012 6:15:00 AM

"Can you say that a little louder, Candy?" Obama craved more credit from the moderator, Candy Crowley, for her correction to Mitt Romney that the president had in fact used the word "terror" a day after the killing of his ambassador in Libya. "He did, in fact, sir," Crowley said to Romney. Obama savored his "victory" in that round, but it was a hollow and disturbing one. Either he already knew it was an act of premeditated terrorism -- in which case he proceeded to lie for two weeks about that on The View, David Letterman, and at the UN --

Time for CNN to fire the sow Crowley.

#1, I second that idea. When the camera opened on her, I thought her ample, square, body made her look like Orson Wells or Raymond Burr in the old Ironside tv series. What an embarrassment for CNN!

Seriously. folks. How hard would it have been for Mitt to turn to Candy and say ''I'm sorry Candy - no, he did not call this out as a terrorist act and your network failed to present the facts surrounding this event for more than a week after it occurred. And I'd ask that you restrict yourself to moderating and not participating unless you're a candidate!''

Sometimes we're just too dang nice...

Pardon a second post. #4 is right, I misspelled "Welles". Orson Welles was often overweight but became obese for the last decade or so of his life.

I had to look up Jabba the Hutt and you are right - that is big!

One of the worst "moderating" jobs I've ever seen. Everything from time management to impartiality to selection of questions. Butting her face into siding w/ Barry on Libya revealed her true colors. Forget she later walked back her comments; the damage was already done.

And what was that hot-mic moment all about, when we heard Ms. Crowley say "Yeah, right". Who was she speaking to? Her off-camera DNC coaches?

You are incorrect Mr Neumeyer. In the rose garden speech he did NOT say it was a terrorist act. He said 'acts of terror' in general. Crowley and Obama were wrong.

I knew this group of "undecided" voters would give Crowley plenty of opportunity to cherry pick Democrat inspired questions, and she did. To Romney AND Obama: How are you different from Bush Mr. Romney? She also made sure Obama could hype his worn out Lilly Ledbetter talking points. Just a couple of examples.

Is anybody surprised? Their Candy cannot keep her fingers out of the pie--or her voice out of the debate--why do we put ourselves through these ordeals when the moderator is sitting with the Nobama? We always wring our hands afterwards -- the writing was on the wall before it began. Ah ha, however, Governor and soon to be President Romney kept his calm and didn't call her out immediately! Nobama is a loser, will be the loser.

By the time they got to this question, it was so out of control, nothing would have surprised me. I couldnt believe Obama actually asked her to confirm he was right.. this is an outrage, but it took the wind out of Romney. He couldnt fight both of them. But, look out for the next debate. Its all foreign policy, and Obama cant continue to lie about the actually facts. Romney better drive this home.

Candy wanted desperately to go down in history as the best debate moderator of modern times. The list of her errors is growing larger by the minute. But what could we expect with 4 of the moderators chosen being known liberal Democrats? Bob Schieffer is no better than the rest! He knows how important the last debate is and he'll do everything in his power to make sure Obama comes out looking like a winner. I refuse to be discouraged over Obama's "stellar performance" as one of MSNBC's copycat analysts declared. Why don't these talking heads wait for the polls to come out, to see if Romney lost any of his women votes, to see if the numbers remain virtually unchanged from what they were pre-debate? If Candy had given Romney even part of the extra minutes she gave Obama, Romney could have answered her questions fully. Obama even lies when telling the truth would serve him better !!

How was it Crowley was so quick to jump in and side with Obama? If she was so well prepped, she'd have known what was in the transcript. It looks like her prep was to collude with the Dims, facts be damned. Backing off later is meaningless, the bell is rung. As bad as the old media are, this is their Watergate moment.

On NBC David Gregory 'agreed' whole heatedly with Candy.
Chuck Todd - weasel - used the scene as evidence that Romney 'stumbled'.

Candy walked it back on her own network after the debate saying Romney was right in the main but used the wrong word. In fact the Obama reference to terrorism in the Rose Garden was generalized and not applied to the Libya attack. Romney was totally correct and Obama was lying with the backing of Candy the moderator. This whole affair looks to me like a set up by in the tank media!

Obama had deception written all over his face when Romney was questioning him about his Rose Garden comments, until Candy bailed him out. Once she did, audible cheers (from a ''non-cheering'' audience) arose. How likely is it that ''undecided'' voters would so readily cheer for one candidate?

Regardless, the quote will now draw more scrutiny; and Romney will have a chance to refute it at the final debate.

Lsat night's debate featured the Obama/Crowley team vs. Mitt Romney, and the outrageous unfairness of it did not go unnoticed. But then again, Candy told everyone she was going to inject herself into the game.

I wonder if debate viewers realize that Crowley and her backers at CNN really believe the American people are stupid and that her cunning ploys would be overlooked.

Instead we should take our outrage to comments@debates.org and let the organizers know that we want a fair, open discussion of the issues that face our country so that the informed voter can make a choice between candidates.

#38: I do too. And I want journalists to point out that Romney was essentially correct because Obama did NOT characterize the Benghazi attack as an act of terror in the rose garden that day. He vaguely referenced acts of terror after setting the meme for the press (which they slavishly took and adhered to) of the video being the issue and the "protest" being spontaneous.

Candy Crowley should never work in journalism again. Time to retire.

Did anyone notice how, during this exchange, Obama quickly said to Candy "Get the transcript Candy"? It was so quick and Candy was so ready that it smacked of collusion. Not a surprise, but a point that may add to the weight of the argument.

The questions weren't all bad; Mitt was excellent in differentiating himself from W and in explaining how he has been mischaracterized by many in the media and in the electorate. Having said that, he blew the Bengazi question by not simply asking why the officials were left unprotected on 9/11, end of story. Forget that Rose Garden baloney.

The Little Boy hides behind Hillary on Benghazi, behind Crowley as his overblown cheerleader and assistant in the 10/16 debate and behind Michelle as his, whatever. Apparently the only thing Obama can do all by himself is lie. This is what total emasculation looks like. It's not pretty and it's not what a successor to Washington, Lincoln, Kennedy and Reagan should look like.

The biggest loser in last night's debate is the American media, and yet the left will cheer her performance. What a sad, sad day.

That she (lamely) tried to walk the comment back later, that's akin to a newspaper placing their corrections on page 17-B. Useless.

When are the Republicans going to insist on a few pro-Republican moderators? Do we have to use a rotating selection of Liberal NPR, CBS, CNN types exclusively? Or better yet, why not eliminate moderating entirely? But if moderating is absolutely necessary, why not two moderators, one to help Obama as usual, and one to act professional?

Crowley's major offense against Romney was not a spur-of-the-moment and wrong comment on the word "terror," but the studied exclusion of the issue of Obamacare so detested by the majority of voters, as well as any question on the time-bombs of S.S. & Medicare.

Media and Crowley agree this morning that Romney was correct on substance. He could have phrased it better.

However, the point Romney made was that 0-bama jetted off to Vegas and other fundraisers while events in Libya were still unfolding. 0-bama did not address this point. His defense was that he made a speech in the Rose Garden the next day – as if that somehow absolves him of any further obligation. That deflected the exchange to a nitpick point as to whether 0-bama used the word “terror” in his remarks – which is 100% irrelevant to Romney’s original critique.

Romney also neglected to mention 0-bama’s OWN speech to the U.N. in which he mentioned the video at least 6 times, but never once referred to the attack as terrorism. -0- attacked the maker of the video, not the terrorists.

#15 tv is a visual medium and Ms crowley's appearance was very distracting. A viewer seeing this woman for the first time would spend a lot of time just trying to figure out whether they were actually looking at a woman or a man, dressed as a woman. In radio the voice is on display, in tv the appearance is on display. Aside from her unpleasant look her job as a moderator was criminal and she should be barred from ever moderating another debate.

Every single day since O got "elected" I've heard the same old song and dance. Lie after lie afer lie.

I'm so sick of it i could scream. I've also been in a very bad depression since that "man" was "elected".

Now at least I have hope where there was none before.

I pray to God Almighty that Mr. Romney is our next President of the United States of America.

Given the quality of the moderators during these debates, I'm surprised Honey Boo Boo wasn't selected as a debate moderator. She would have done at least as well as the others, and she did, let us not forget, endorse Obama on Jimmy Kimmel's show.

Not mentioned yet was the time alotted to Gov. Romney and Pres. Obama.

I remember the clock being on screen when Romney was speaking, but not so much when Obama was speaking.

Romney was continually being interrupted by Crowley and told that he would get his time later, to just wait. But that never happened. In the end, Obama had minutes more time than Romney. But from what was said, and shown, I really thought Romney was getting the lion's share of the time.

For the truly undecided, this shold have been eye opening, if they wanted their eyes opened.

Maybe the GOP wll finally get serious about who they permit to moderate debates. They've allowed the libs to dominate the process far too long. Time to quit being the Stupid Party when it comes to debates and demand balance and objectivity in the choice of moderators.

And did anyone mention the applause from the reporter's section (as reported on Drudge) when Romney's wealth was mentioned. No bias there. Now wonder there is no respect left for the Press, and that of course includes Crowley, who a week earlier on HER program had asked why Obama insisted on saying it was an attack based on that video when it had been concluded everywhere else it was a terrorist attack. She really is ethical, eh.

Everyone knew damn well what she was going to do so nothing will be done to her. Note the next moderator will do the same or worse they are all in the tank for the far left democrats.

I had an elderly aunt like Candy Crowly. She always tried her best to be outstanding but something always rained on her parade.She was lots of fun but never had all the pieces together at the same time.
We had some great laughs together but, for some reason, I always felt sorry for her. I still laugh about the time she made me a birthday cake and forgot to use the baking powder and then forgot the candles..We just piled ice cream on it and had a blast. I miss her, even after nearly fifty years. Enjoy your retirement, Candy. You've earned it.

Yes, the name calling is not really necessary. From this part of the world, I was really shocked to see how the moderator was behaving. One wonders whether she was not paid before the debate to do what she did. Or even promised something. I tend to believe either one because of the way Obama looked her straight in the eye and said "Can you say that a little louder, Candy ?" That was a set up against Romney. However, I'm sure I'm not the only one to have seen this and I don't think the hardworking, decent, law abiding Americans who have ethics and values missed what happened. Romney did very well considering what he had up against him. He certainly didn't come across as being arrogant, disdainful and disrespectful, all the while showing us that he really means what he says, that he's going to try and put America back on track. OMG, Obama Must Go !

The name calling stays! If they don't like it the Øtard-loving bunch of hypocritical, trolls can go find a nice cliff to lemming off of and make everyone's life a little nicer. You people that like to continue to fight like little girls need to wake up and smell the coffee. We're in a street fight. Are you wanting a remake of Bob Dole and John McCain's campaigns? Don't come blubbering that we lost the fight but we fought it nicely. Sheesh. Find Mike Royko's definition of a "Whoogee".

Candy is proof positive that parents should be careful when they bestow a name. Having seen her in action, I must say there is nothing sweet about this woman.

#48, you're correct about this site. Many times I have admired a clever remark by a fellow L-dotter, only to hear it parroted later on by a talk show host, without attribution.

Crowley's unfortunate physical aspects are very much germane to this discussion. She is one of a class of women who are bright and hardworking, but, because of their appearance have a definite pathology. I am a normal sized, smart, and yes, fairly pretty woman and I have been dealing with the unattractive heavy smart girls all my working life. Some of them are true joys to know and work with and their inner beauty shines on out, but, others like Crowley are simply OUT TO GET someone BECAUSE it is THEIR TURN or WHATEVER. Yes, that was shouting, because that is how they are.

This was Crowley's turn in the spotlight and she blew it big time because she wanted the kool kids in the DNC to like her, and to really see her. Instead she goes down in history as a joke who sold out her integrity and professionalism in order to participate in some very cheap tricks. I think it all hit her in the light of day just how much she threw away and that is why she so desperately tried to walk it back all day. If she had simply done a good and fair job, she would be the object of admiration instead of just another sell out and thus the subject of a lot of fat jokes.

*Candy, I call my sugar Candy
Because I'm sweet on Candy
And Candy's sweet on me

She understands me
My understanding Candy
And Candy's always handy
When I need sympathy

I wish that there were four of her
So I could love much more of her
She has taken my complete heart
Got a sweet tooth for my sweetheart*

By the way, the moderator for the third and final debate is Bob Schieffer of CBS.

He'll likely make Crowley look positively neutral.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
