We've seen the amateurish machinations of presidential debate "moderators," Martha Raddatz and Candy Crowley, in their efforts to put Obama in the best light and Romney in the worst. As the old saying goes, Romney came out smelling like roses. There are more intelligent people in America than Raddatz and Crowley thought, and they gave Romney a boost in the polls.

Now comes the crafty old liberal and Democrat attack dog, Bob Schieffer, to be moderator in the final debate. In 1976, when Jimmy Carter took a lead over Gerald Ford, Schieffer announced, "Well, that's good news!" Of all People, Dan Rather had to correct him and say "it's good news for Democrats; if you are a Republican, take a deep breath." On the same program, when it was announced that Ford might ask for a recount in New York, Walter Cronkite scowled, and in his quivering, solemn voice said apparently it would be "an exercise in futility." CBS has never apologized for their bold bias for Jimmy Carter, nor the damage Carter did to this country. Monday, Romney will defeat both Obama and CBS. I predict that Schieffer, in spite of himself, will give Romney another boost, although the mainstream media will see it in an entirely different light. They will try to make a silk purse out of a sows ear--the way they did the past two debates--but Americans are getting smarter in the last few weeks of this campaign..

We know of Schieffer's bias. All we have to do now is to wait to find out what machinations he will use to try to help Obama and hurt Romney.

By the way, Obama never called Benghazi an act of terror in his Rose Garden speech. He merely said that "all acts of terror" will be dealt with--it was used in his denial that Benghazi was an act of terror. He never admitted, until two weeks after the assassination, that Benghazi was an act of terror and not a reaction to some YouTube video.

"Pro_Sovereinty" I couldnt agree with you more. Scheiffer was at it again yesterday. He invited two people on Fact the Nation a female from Obama camp and a guy from Romneys camp. He allowed that troll to interrupt and speak over the guy from Romneys camp repeatedly, just as the other two trolls Raddatz and Crowley had done when they "moderated".

As for Libya, it doesnt matter if Obama spoke from the Rose Garden, Michelles vegetable garden or my back yard and declared terrorists killed our beloved Amercians or if the man in the moon killed them. The fact is they are dead and its because pleas for security were ignored dating as far back as last February. Obama is responsible.

Jimmy Carter isnt the only one who caused damage to this country. Look to Bill Clinton, too. Osama Bin Laden bombed the World Trade Center twice. The first time, he was taken into custody and Clinton let him go. Bin Laden was enabled to come back and strike again, the second time taking down the Twin Towers and killing over 5,000 people in the process. What do you think those bombings, the cost of clean up, reconstruction of events, investigations, the deaths, etc and cost our economy, let alone the war Bush waged on terrorism in order to protect our national security?

And by the way people, Obama did not take out Osama Bin Laden. Our brave troops who risk their lives, even sacrificing their lives, took out Osama Bin Laden, which began with Bush's campaign on terrorism which started before Obama stepped foot in the White House. I like giving credit where credit is due.

I guess we'll all have to wait and see what happens tonight.
