Romney defeats both Obama and Crowley at Town Hall

by Doug Book,  staff writer

No one told Mitt Romney that he would be the lone Republican taking part in a three way debate on Tuesday night but, not altogether unpredictably, that’s the way it turned out.

According to debate moderator and part-time participant Candy Crowley, it was “instinct” which forced her to intercede on Obama’s behalf during the somewhat rancorous discussion of the Benghazi murder of Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans. When Romney stated quite correctly that it took the Obama Administration 14 days to call the Benghazi killings a terror attack, Obama protested and Crowley immediately came to his rescue, saying to Romney “he did, in fact, Sir (call it an act of terror,)”  referring to a statement given by the president the day after the killings.(1)

What Obama really said was “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.” (1) Although this was indeed part of a statement given the day after the Benghazi attacks, Obama had NOT referenced the Benghazi killings as the “acts of terror” he spoke of. Rather, it was a general statement which could have just as easily referred to the 9/11 attacks the president had brought up at the same time. And it is a fact that no one in the Obama Administration–including Obama himself—spoke of terror in relation to Benghazi for the next 2 weeks, opting instead to call the 4 deaths the result of an “anti-Muhammed movie” discovered on the internet. Certainly that would have been an odd tack for the Administration to take had the president actually referred to the Benghazi murders as “acts of terror” on the day after they had occurred.

Yet Crowley felt it her duty, or rather a matter of “instinct” to come to Obama defense at this key moment in the debate. (2)

Funny the instinctive moderator didn’t believe it necessary to correct Obama when he claimed that “…oil production has been up and that the oil companies have been granted permits to drill but refuse to do so.” (3) “We have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years,” said the president, apparently oblivious to the fact that oil companies have vacated the Gulf of Mexico costing Americans thousands of jobs. (3)

But Romney quickly corrected Obama, telling the audience that “oil production is down 14 percent this year on federal land, and gas production was down 9 percent. Why? Because the president cut in half the number of licenses and permits for drilling on federal lands, and in federal waters.”  (3) Yet, for some reason, Ms. Crowley did NOT admonish the president for his less-than-factual claims! Apparently she did not have these facts at her fingertips as she obviously did Obama’s Benghazi statement.

Mitt Romney won this debate, defeating Barack Obama and his obliging assistant with both facts and superior delivery. Of course, most of the media immediately declared Obama the victor, but that was to be expected.

So polls are not likely to change a great deal as a result of the town hall, unless a few undecided voters who paid close attention now decide to support Romney thanks to the smarmy antics of Candy Crowley.

One thought on “Romney defeats both Obama and Crowley at Town Hall”

  1. Another excellent article Doug. I watched that segment of the 2nd presidential debate and decided two things in particular.
    A. The media continues to boldly lie and apologize for Obama’s many lapses and this Candy Crowley act of supreme stupidity during “a purportedly unbiased” Presidential debate is no exception to that behavior since “The One” took office.
    B. Obama must lie as he has nothing of believable substance left in him to utter.
    And his cow of a wife, Moochelle, standing and clapping (when she believed her lying mate scored a point against Romney) when the rules of the debate strictly forbid such displays from the gallery where Anne Romney and mama moochelle were sitting….just goes to show how low-class the Obama’s really are….They BOTH believe that rules are made for other people…not themselves.
    So sorry I haven’t been contributing at all lately….especially where your articles are concerned, Doug…but you see, my friend; I’m currently undergoing Chemotherapy for what I am told is a fairly easy type of cancer to knock out. Plus I also had two surgeries on my upper left arm to place a Titanium rod down through the Humerus bone to keep my arm from fracturing, as apparently the cancer had thinned the outer bone wall enough to warrant the concern of my Orthopedic surgeon.
    All this has been on-going since discovery around mid-late August. A total whirlwind of tests, body and bone scans,surgeries, Pet scans, MRIs, bone marrow biopsy and Chemo-IV-Drip which started Monday October 1st; with my next chem-session due Monday Oct. 27th….hasn’t been a very fun experience….but I have excellent doctors, a great support system through my family and loving mate, Charlie……and yes! Even Cato, the kitty from hell…has been unusually deferential toward me of late.
    Began loosing my hair last night…a somewhat traumatic experience even though I was told it would happen….but then we women can be so vain about the precious little we are allowed to do with our bodies…hair-styles being one of the “biggies” !!
    Trying hard to find some small humor within different aspects of this strange trial in my life….My friend Judi McLeod, editor of Canada Free Press is going to send me a long-sleeved, red, Canada Free Press T-shirt which has the added words…”CHEMO SUCKS !!” printed on it…which I will wear at my IV Drip sessions…..
    To all of you out there who have managed to survive the effects of cancer and the medical treatments used to kill it….you are all my heroes…for you have helped to hone and refine the cancer treatments for the rest of us being used today.
    I will visit the CIR website but I may not actually do any posting each time…maybe now and again….’Til then Doug, Coach, Jim, Suzanne, Emmet, Raymond and Ron etal…know that I care about the cause and endeavor to oust Obama and pleased be assured that if I have to be “carried” into the voting place in November, I will cast my vote against the traitor, Obama. Love to all, Jo
