Candy Crowley: ‘I’m not
a fly on the wall’

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 10/15/2012 11:11:57 AM

The town-hall debate is the one presidential faceoff in which the audience gets to ask the questions. But don’t tell that to moderator Candy Crowley. Like any journalist worthy of the assignment, Crowley concedes that the debate on Tuesday night isn’t about her, but she just as eagerly acknowledges her role in it. “I understand that I’m there. I’m not a fly on the wall,” she told Politico recently. “We don’t want the candidates to spout talking points. That doesn’t help voters … I’m going to react organically to what’s happening.” In a move that has unnerved both campaigns,

Let this be a lesson to Republicans all over the fruited plain. We will no longer accept extreme liberals to be in control of debates. Paul Ryan was prevented from making excellent points in the debate, thanks to Biden and the moderator.
We must demand that Mark Levin and other conservatives are part of the process next time.

I've seen pictures of Candy Crowley.

The phrases "fly on the wall" and "react organically" bring some really repulsive images to mind.

Both Crowley and 0bama are going to overreach tomorrow night and it is only going to help Mitt because he will be viewed as the only adult on the stage.

Her statement about not allowing the candidates to spout their campaign talking points is a red herring.

She sees herself as the one who gets to determine what is a talking point and the one who gets to stifle that point and steer the conversation to a direction she thinks it should go.

In other words, she thinks she is a part of the debate rather than a sideline official that monitors the clock.

We all know how these ego-maniacal lib reporters think. She will obviously interrupt Mitt and claim she is doing so because he is spewing talking points--then she will try to throw him a curveball question full of spin and innuendo. For Obama, she will interrupt once or twice, but it will be because he is floundering and she will try to throw him a lifeline.

Seen it all too often...

“Organically”? Try “Progressively”!

Recent commentary…..

CROWLEY: We’ve already had this debate. All they have to do at Obama Reelect is open up the files because this debate has already happened. They just bring it back, it goes, it is, you know, what they talk about. But I think the other thing that’s worth pointing out is not every Republican has signed on to this kind of, I mean, they will publicly. But there is some trepidation…

GLORIA BORGER, CNN: They're afraid.
CROWLEY: ...that this might be, looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish.

CROWLEY:
This is the same woman who eulogized Kennedy by dismissing Mary Jo Kopechne like this: It's an imperfect story of an often reckless young man who lived hard and as a U.S. senator drove a car off a bridge after a party, killing a young campaign aide.
Imperfect story? And he didn’t just kill her by driving off a bridge; Kennedy left her to suffocate to death. In the Senate was redemption. In the Senate, the dream came alive.

CROWLEY:
Try this: in June of this year, defending Obama’s national security leaks, Crowley actually said,

“Usually you kind of give the President a pass on leaking confidential stuff.”

No one should give Crowley a pass on anything.

When Crowley "reacts organically" to Mitt during the debates, Romney should look directly into the camera and say to the American people:

"Ms. Crowley wants to "organically" redirect my message to you".

"I have been on the campaign trail listening to you and you want solutions to our economic and world leadership problems."

"Here they are." (5 point plan)

Then he should look back at Ms. Crowley and invite her to join him on the campaign trail so she can better understand why her "organic" participation is out of step with teeh American People.

Ms. Crowley's aspirations are high enough for her to file and run as a candidate herself. That is really what she ought to do instead of exploiting her role as moderator to join in the debate and express her own opinions. But it may work to the public good to have her be the Joker in the deck. It is bound to keep the real candidates on their toes.

All of this conflict and confusion about moderators could easily be avoided in the future by eliminating the role of moderator, which is an unnecessary and intrusive encumbrance in the first place. There is no need whatever to have a third party, and a journalist of all people, sticking their nose into a presidential debate. Moderators merely get in the way and obstruct the view. They deprive Americans of the opportunity to see how the candidates would handle themselves in a free exchange of ideas and insults.

Again, here we are trying to make the best of an unfair debate process and obviously biased and compromised moderator. The point isn't that Romney will probably do great. Of course he will. Question remains as to why the GOP has given all decision-making about Presidential debates to the Democrats on a silver platter. The other side merely takes advantage of our cowardice - again.

If Candy "Sam Kinison" Crowley acts up Mitt can always ask her what she meant when she uttered on air "Romney/Ryan...that's a death wish" moments after Romney officially announced his GOP running mate.

Are professional journalists required to subjectively question and condemn candidates like she did...?

The point is that Ms Crowley favors one side and is not an independent minded journalist.
WHY can't the GOP insist on a neutral moderator. i think that they agreed to ANY moderator so that the debates would take place.
Otherwise, Obama may have just declined to debate. He figured he had it in the bag with moderators that leaned his way.

When I saw the list of moderators I shuddered. Who agreed to this? This is not going to turn out well. After the debate is done and the words are exchanged it is done. Nothing afterward can fix it. I saw the look on Ryan's face after the debate was over and he looked sick.

Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.
