Brilliant play on Charlie Brown's words, Rick!
“Fact checking” (especially when it’s wrong) by a moderator during a debate would have been a career ender not too many years ago. One would (and should) find themselves going from CNN to channel 14 in Podunk, California pretty quickly.
With the “He did call it an act of terror” statement by Crowley during one of the most heated parts of the debate, it was apparent that Ms. Crowley immediately realized her gaffe. She goofed. She knew it. But, with the help of CNN praising her performance, she has defended herself.
Other than the awful mistake of letting her inner progressive out at the worst possible time, she did a pretty good job. It’s tough moderating a tense debate under such a bright spotlight. I wish she had been able to handle it.
Romney should have refused a CNN stooge as moderator and stood his ground when the fur started flying.
It's the GOP's biggest flaw, IMO: caving to the whining and threats of the Lefties. We keep hoping for better and never seem to get it, even when the GOP completely has the reins.
