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.

#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.

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 !

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.

Woman Killed In Capitol Hill

Six months after a Connecticut woman was killed in a hail of police gunfire on Capitol Hill, the federal investigation remains under wraps, even as new information has surfaced showing she was shot multiple times from behind, including once in the head. Three of the five shots that hit Miriam Carey, 34, entered through her back, and another struck her upper left arm, according to the official report of her autopsy, obtained by a lawyer for her family. An accompanying toxicology report shows that Carey, a dental assistant, had no drugs or alcohol in her system when she was killed.

For all the risky adventures Bran Ferren has chased in the past six decades—a list that includes a variety of hazardous undertakings, from traveling through Afghan war zones to working in Hollywood—there was one highly perilous pursuit he never dared take on: parenthood. “Having a family,” Ferren says, “wasn’t a priority.” It’s a late-summer afternoon, and Ferren—celebrated inventor, technologist, former head of research and development for Disney’s Imagineering department—is sitting inside a guesthouse-slash-storage facility on his ample East Hampton, New York, spread, drinking his third or fourth Diet Coke of the day.

Anne’s story is a theoretically happy one with a terribly sad ending: an art teacher and a former engineer in the British Royal Navy, she led, by her own account, a wonderfully full life, with a great deal of adventure and satisfaction. But her life began in the middle 1920s, and at the age of 89 she found adapting to the modern world not only impossible but undesirable — she recoiled in horror from prepackaged dinners on sale at the grocery store, from fast food, from declining manners, from a culture dominated by television and the Internet, from vulgar consumerism,

Al Sharpton: FBI Informant Claims

The reverend denies to The Daily Beast that he ever knowingly snitched on the Mafia to the FBI, but The Smoking Gun website, which made the charges, is sticking to its story. “If I brought down the Mob,” the Rev. Al Sharpton demanded on Monday, “I want my tickertape parade.” The civil rights activist and MSNBC host was referring, facetiously, to TheSmokingGun.com’s meticulously detailed, epic account, rife with court documents and law enforcement sourcing, of Sharpton’s apparent four-year career in the 1980s as one of the FBI’s more valuable mafia informants--a narrative that can best be described as The Sopranos meets American

Richard Griffin, the new general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, wants to give unions a veto over a unionized employer´s decision to relocate. If Griffin has his way, and he most assuredly will, some unionized businesses will be pinned in place at the discretion of their unions. The change Griffin is contemplating is unnecessary and inconsistent with both the law and the dynamics of our free-enterprise system. It will upset the balance mandated by the Supreme Court and should send a chill up the spine of unionized companies contemplating relocating an operation.

It´s a question that has been at the heart of the health care debate for the past five years, and one that has been the source of plenty of confusion and misinformation: How much does Obamacare actually cost? Over at the newly launched vox.com, Sarah Kliff has a piece attempting to offer an easy explanation of President Obama´s health care law. Kliff is always worth reading on health care policy, but when describing the cost of Obamacare, she writes, “Expanding health coverage to millions of Americans is expensive; it will cost more than $1 trillion over the next decade.” In reality,

“In the end, history is not kind to those who would deny Americans their basic economic security. Nobody remembers well those who stand in the way of America’s progress or our people. And that’s what the Affordable Care Act represents.” President Obama, who made that statement last week, has never uttered truer words. Obama’s signature legislation is plainly standing in the way of Americans’ economic security and progress, a fact for which he and his congressional allies won’t be remembered kindly. The federal government’s own Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), housed in the executive branch, tells the tale. In June 2009,

Members of that church have long contended that God hates homosexuality and America’s tolerance of homosexuality. They also claim that he sends disasters as punishment.

While doing a review of Rupert Darwall’s book “The Age of Global Warming”, Charles Moore does an excellent job of succinctly identifying the alarmist movement’s core origins and core identity: The origins of warmism lie in a cocktail of ideas which includes anti-industrial nature worship, post-colonial guilt, a post-Enlightenment belief in scientists as a new priesthood of the truth, a hatred of population growth, a revulsion against the widespread increase in wealth and a belief in world government. It involves a fondness for predicting that energy supplies won’t last much longer (as early as 1909, the US National Conservation Commission

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep.
