After reading the comments from the left, apparently they are thrilled Candy came to the rescue of our flailing president regarding the attack of our embassy and killing of our Ambassador. Fortunately the next debate will be foreign policy. Mitt missed a chance, but Candy looked the fool. Most people probably are not that engaged in the Libya story since the media is giving it scant attention. Energy? Obama is a bigger fool, check out yesterday’s post. Obama cuts off drilling in half of Alaska national petroleum reserve. Candy didn’t feel inclined to correct this record. I am sorry we did not have a knock out punch
President Obama is campaigning as a champion of the oil and gas boom he’s had nothing to do with, and even as his regulators try to stifle it. The latest example is the Interior Department’s little-noticed August decision to close off from drilling nearly half of the 23.5 million acre National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska.
Have we learned anything about choosing the left for moderators? Here we go:
One of the big moments from Tuesday’s presidential debate between Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney occurred when moderator Candy Crowley of CNN injected herself into the discussion after Romney accused the president of refusing to refer to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi as a terrorist act.
“I think (it’s) interesting the president just said something which — which is that on the day after the attack he went into the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror,” said Gov. Romney.
“That’s what I said,” the president responded.
“You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you’re saying?”
“Please proceed, governor.”
“I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.”
“Get the transcript.”
“It — it — it — he did in fact, sir,” Crowley said, offering the president what looked to be a little debate assistance.
“Can you say that a little louder, Candy?” the president asked confidently.
“He — he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that,” Crowley said.
