Time Magazine this week set off a bombshell when it leaked a copy of Tuesday night's presidential debate contact to the media.
It said the debate moderator should just call on the audience and stay out of the way.
When asked about it, the moderator, CNN's Candy Crowley beat her chest and said she was more than a fly on the wall. She wanted to be part of things.
Well, sister, you were a part of the debate and you disgraced yourself.
Case in point: The tense moment about Benghazi.
Mr. Romney was making the point that it took 14 days for this administration to even say our four Americans died in a terror attack.
The President and his folks are going back to the Bill Clinton lawyer days of parsing what "is" actually is.
Mr. Romney said the President never used the words terror attack to say what happened.
Crowley, who had already lost control of the debate went to to the President's defense saying basically "yes, he did."
They are using this as an example:
In the rose garden the day after the embassy attaks the president said and I quote: "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for."
He used terror attacks in the plural. A broad statement.
He then dispatched our ambassador to the UN Susan Rice to shill for the talk shows that the attacks were all about a YouTube video....not terror.
He spent $70,000 dollars of TV time in the Middle East running a commercial saying the U.S. is sorry that a YouTube movie caused all this mess.
It took the administration 14 days to ever say the specific - in the singular - attack which killed 4 Americans including our ambassador was terror.
Now, starting in the debate last night, the Obama Administration is trying to run for cover by using the Rose Garden uttered word "terror" as a general statement.
Not only did Crowley let him, but agreed with the President.
She's the political reporter for CNN and she doesn't know any better?
Yes, Miss Crowley, you got what you wanted.
You wanted to be recognized.
But. you're being called out for being wrong... by CNN and Anderson Cooper of all people.
I don't have time to mention the extra three minutes she gave the President.
Last night Ms. Crowley was a disgrace.
Thats my point of view... what's yours?
