CNN's Candy Crowley the debate moderator is a credit of her station and to honest news reporters everywhere. In the moment of truth Crowley was not a coward and called an immediate live game foul against Romney when he told a lie that she personally knew to be untrue. (Video)
This I hope ends a long string of cowardly Reporters/moderators who unlike the general public know exactly when Romney is telling a bold face lie that he knows not to be true and that he knows the reporters know not to be true, but has the brass to lie right in the reporter's face. Up until now they for the most part have been sitting and taking it, not tonight.
I could see the wheels of reporting honesty and integrity turning in the courageousness Candy Crowley's mind, no he didn't. She fact checked him on the spot and I will not allow you to tell a bold face lie on my watch. She then called foul and corrected Romney on the spot. The President did call it a terrorist attack.
Let's Go To The Video Tape
Romney Caught in a anti-patriotic bold faced lie in prime time in front of some 60 million viewers.
Romney's disrespect for 47% of the American people and especially, reporters with his overt lies have finally caught up with him. You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you can not fool all of the people all of the time. For some will stand, the scraper from Scranton, uncle Joe stud up, now honest Candy Crowley stud up and we and all reporters stand taller. America stands taller.
I was pleased to see the President get in Romney's face when he lied or tried to steal time which, the moderator was having non of either. I would love to stay and have said the the President won round 2. However, the fact is that Romney lost and Crowley and the American people won.
If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything, Mark Twain.
