Barack Obama, our next President

Candy’s not dandy
October 17, 2012

Media bias is more often sensed than seen, but America got its faced rubbed in it Tuesday night — by debate “moderator” Candy Crowley.

CNN’s Crowley selected both questions and questioners — both of which largely skewed left. She let President Obama dominate, giving him 4 minutes and 18 seconds more speaking time.

She interrupted Obama nine times, but she squelched Mitt Romney fully 28 times — repeatedly cutting him off just as he was scoring points. Once she told him to shut up, telling him:“See all these people? They’ve been waiting for you. Make it short.”

She never did that to Obama.

She flat-out ordered:“If I could have you sit down, Gov. Romney”— but never asked the equally aggressive Obama to sit.

When Romney tried to respond at several points, she cut him off, saying “it doesn’t quite work like that” and promising to “give you a chance” later on.

Needless to say, she never did.

But the most blatant evidence of bias was her instant “fact checking” of Romney’s quite correct insistence that Obama took weeks to call the Benghazi debacle a terrorist attack. She jumped to Obama’s defense, saying “he did call it an act of terror.”

But she was flat-out wrong.

Which is why a grinning Obama urged:“Can you say that a little louder, Candy?”

But Obama’s reference was to generic “acts of terror” and framed in the context of the 9/11 attacks of 2001— and not the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi atrocity.

Not until 17 days later — after endless administration distortions — did Obama acknowledge that it was a planned attack.

Yesterday, Crowley belatedly acknowledged,“The president did not say it was ... an act of terror.” But the damage was done.

Ironically, though, not so much to Romney — even the most casual observer long knew the facts — but to Crowley herself.

And to the media.

It has long had its thumb on the scale — but rarely so publicly, nor so shamelessly.

Way to go, Ms. Crowley.

ROTFLMAO
So you can 'smell' a conspiracy in the making??
Then how come you're not working for Breitbart?
you're about as full of it as every birther i've ever made a fool of. your leaps of faith are of the kangaroo variety. how you can post anything without being air sick is a wonder to us all.
I am reminded of one of Saul Alinsky's rules:

Saul Alinsky rule number 5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."

Here is my reaction "to your advantage."

You forgot to answer the post. There are many statements in the post. Pick any out and tell us why you disagree.
I'll help you. Here's the post again:

Nobody believes that. Obama is completely out of touch. He's not in charge of anything. He says only what he's ordered to say. Everything is scripted for him. That's the legacy he'll leave. We have never had a president that was so inconsequential.
I smell Vallerie Jarrett. She decided we didn't want to offend the terrorists we knew were organizing in Libya, so she ordered the ambassador to be with very low security.
Now, let's get to the real issue:
It's obvious Al Qaeda trained their assault team very thuroughly in some mock-up facility of the exact location of the attack. All you have to do is observe the precision of their movements through the facility to deduce this. This was a very precisely planned attack requiring coordination of movement during action through multiple locations.
This requires precise timing. The timing is based on the location of the American ambassador. The assault team has to be assembled. They're not just hanging around at the assault point fully armed for weeks waiting for the ambassador to arrive. They know they will get a signal from somewhere that starts their attack. Their attack starts with the notification of everyone in the assault team, everyone involved in the placement of the heavy weapons, the diversionary fire team, and everyone involved in the communication between the different elements of the attack.
They have to know exactly when the ambassador will be at the consulate.
If they did not have information directly from the US government, and I suspect Vallerie Jarrett, then it would have been impossible for them to execute this type of assault. Without someone in either the State Department or the White House giving to Al Qaeda real-time location information of the American ambassador, they would have attempted to kill him at the usual location, the embassy in Tripoli.
This is too much like the very next "secret" mission of SEAL Team Six when their helicopter descended to disembark the SEAL team at the "secret" location right into the sights of a lone Taliban waiting for them with a rocket launcher.

2 great posts:

* At Tuesday’s debate, President Obama pulled off the magical feat of making his credibility completely disappear. Does he imagine the American public is so stupid that we will simply forget his many assertions that the attack in Benghazi was a response to a film and not a carefully planned and executed attack by terrorists?
(guess this poster never read the O'bot posts on here)

* The President said gas cost less in 2008 because of the recession. Let’s have a permanent recession, since it will put more money in our pockets.

Please tell us about the cost trend leading up to the recession caused by the Democrats' lunatic subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.
Then, kindly explain to us how stagnant economic growth creates sufficient increase in demand to double the cost.

You may add to your explanation the effect of Quantitative Easing, or simply put counterfeiting US currency, causing the US dollar to be devalued, thus the number of dollars required to purchase any product of unchanging value will increase.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Poor people don't lend money. Wall St. millionaires took the bad loans the bank millionaires made and sold it to the world. That's what caused the housing collapse. Millionaires and billionaires.
Same thing with ALL the jobs shipped to China. The workers didn't ship them. It was people like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Two of the richest people EVER in America. The rich are killing America but you Repubs defend them each and everyday.

The right-wing media hates Alinsky, except when he's shaping their movement
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2010/02/01/the-r...

Inside The Tea Party Factory

Conservative groups train their cadres in Dallas, where it's one part Hayek, one part Alinsky, and one part Henry Ford.

“We’re out-Saul Alinskying the left,” Matt Kibbe, the group’s director in a radio interview in Dallas the day of FreePAC. Steinhauser also quoted Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals in his speech:“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."

"Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”

Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” Never let a Republican stop you from voting.... carry your gun in November....

I guess binders are not as big of a deal as many make them out to be. Over half of Rommney's top administrators in state government were women. Beats the hell of the White House numbers doesn't it?

Please note dates on some (not all) of these articles were prior to debates (meaning not driven by the debate like some current articles have been).

Keep believing Obama really cares about you and fair pay for you and not just your vote when he does not apply equal pay and opportunity in his own administration.
