This happens when there are too many Democrats on the site looking to increase their badge count and looking for free stuff from the rest of us.

She can dish out her petty attacks on people, but she sure is thin skinned when you do it back (justifiably) to her.
If you're lucky you'll get put on her "permanent" ignore list, although I have yet to see her permanently ignore anyone.

You're a liar and creep--knock-knock engine? Can that be you? What-ev', you're obviously taking your talking points from Breitbart and, thus, will be just as incorrect as he always was before you join him for your final reward. Rubin is a poor journalist--maybe she could get some play on Faux if she were better looking.

"Huh? Romney messed up and Crowley caught him: Conservatives are upset because their guy got slammed, says James Poniewozik at TIME, but disputing Crowley's fact-check is a losing game. Obama directly spoke of the dead in Benghazi immediately after his line about "acts of terror." Romney got caught because there was a knowledgeable journalist there to keep him honest. Kudos to Crowley.
"Debate Watch: The fact-check heard round the world"

Obama did call it an act of terror, but not when Crowley said: Romney's supporters are right about one thing, says Josh Rogin at Foreign Policy. In the Rose Garden on Sept. 12, Obama really "did not explicitly refer to the Benghazi attack as an 'act of terror,' though he did use those words." He did, however, specifically call the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" on a campaign stop the very next day. Regardless, Romney's claim that Obama took 14 days to call Benghazi terrorism is wrong.
"Obama did call Benghazi attack an 'act of terror'ó in Colorado"

Face it, Willard Mittens is a cold, unattractive, and arrogant fool who couldn't "fool" fifty-one percent of the people. You losers surely can pick 'em...

I don't know John. That was the first time I know of where a moderator went way out of bounds like that and teamed up with Obama in a lie. He was put in a totally unfair position.

I think the lesson to be learned from this is that the Republicans know that a Democrat in the tank cannot be used as a moderator as the Democrats do not play by the rules.

The Republicans in general need to stand up to them and no longer allow the so called mainstream media people to moderate debates. Too bad that debate wasn't with Newt. He would have nailed the slob Crowley big time!

We have known for a long that lamestream media moderators have gone slightly out of bounds, now we know first hand how far they will go. It's not like it's a surprise that the leftwing media is corrupt.

Might you be referring the 30 Republican Governors vs. the 19 Democrats? Wait a moment, that doesn't add up to the 57 states Obama has he visited.

Or maybe you are referring the Republican controlled House of Representatives?

If Republicans refused to be interviewed by Crowley, her employer would defend her for a while and then quietly replace her.

No, I said "brand" such as Trump, Palin, Rove, etc.; your congressmen just steal money doing nothing but get in the way.

We call it Colorado Kool Aid__doesn't matter it's the official beer of NASCAR. Taste's good and can barely get a person tipsy much less crazy. Healthier than Coke or Pepsi too.
