Mitt Romney Has Gerald Ford Moment During Over Obama’s Comments Morning After Benghazi Consulate Attack

Mitt Romney Has Gerald Ford Moment During Over Obama’s Comments Morning After Benghazi Consulate Attack (Photo credit: hkfuey97)


President Obama won the second presidential debate at Hofstra University decisively and the performance was strong. Mitt Romney has Gerald Ford moment when he said the morning after the attacks on the U.S. consulate on Libya he didn’t call it a terror attack but went off on fundraising stops. Candy Crowley had to fact-check Mitt Romney mid-debate, saying that he did mention terrorism in his statement in the Rose Garden.

Romney tried to bully Candy Crowley and it backfired in a big way. She, like Martha Raddatz, did a superb job. Romney’s facts just don’t add up and I am glad President Obama pointed them out decisively. Romney also made a huge miscalculation when he talked about being for the 100 percent in his closing argument. Obama scored a knock-out when he ended by slamming Mitt Romney for his 47 percent insult.

Mitt Romney was very condescending and rude to Candy Crowley and as a woman, I find it appalling and shows him to be the bully that cut his classmate’s hair. In closing, what are “binders full of women?” That comment was made by Mitt Romney and it is trending on Twitter. President Obama turned it around!

  • Evidently, you missed Candy Crowley’s retraction of the big moment.

      She did nothing of that sort.

        She did back-track. Yes.

        Here’s what she said during the

        “He did in fact, sir….He — he
        did call it an act of terror.”

        So, she stated it as an
        absolute **fact**. According to
        her, Romney was objectively, factually wrong and Obama was objectively,
        factually right.

        But here’s what she said on CNN
        with Anderson Cooper:

        ““Romney was right in the
        main, I just think he picked the wrong word.”

        So she has gone from calling it
        an objective fact, to equivocating by saying “I think” now.

        That’s back-tracking.

        She also made up a false excuse
        for why she jumped in to play defense for the president. She gave the following
        explanation on CNN with Soledad O’Brien as to why she stepped in during the
        controversial Benghazi segment of the presidential debate: “There was this
        point where they both kind of looked at me, you know, and then, you know,
        Romney’s looking at me, the president’s looking at me, and what I wanted to do
        was move this along.”

        Her claim is false and that is
        easily verifiable on the tape. They did not “both” look at her for help before
        she stepped in. There was only **one** debater who was looking at her at all
        when she stepped in: President Obama. Governor Romney only looked at her
        **after** she began to support President Obama – and understandably so. She’s
        supposed to be a moderator, not another debater.
