Debate Co-Chair Admits Creepy Crowley Was a Mistake

Better late than never. Frank Fahrenkopf, co-chair of the Commission on Presidential Debates, admits that selecting obsequious obamunist apparatchik of nakedly propagandistic CNN to “moderate” a debate — a debate which betrayed that she had coordinated a defense of Obama with his campaign in advance — was a “mistake”:

Crowley stirred controversy by intervening in the town hall-style debate to support Obama’s contention that he had referred to the Sep. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi as a terrorist attack the day after it had occurred. In fact, as Crowley herself later admitted, Obama had not done so, referring only to “acts of terror” in general. In a CBS interview taped the same day, Obama declined to refer to the attack as a terrorist act, and subsequently supported a false story about a protest over an anti-Islamic video that never took place.

Yet during the debate, Crowley had a quote from this speech lined up in advance to support Obama’s brazenly false assertion that he had always admitted Benghazi to be a terror attack rather than the outcome of some obscure video trailer from California.

After Crowley backed up the president, some members of the audience burst into applause, in violation of the rules. The effect was not lost on the audience, which scored the debate as an Obama win — nor was it lost on Romney, who was sufficiently chastened that he refused to bring up the Benghazi issue again in the third presidential debate, even though that debate was specifically focused on foreign policy and national security.

You can’t blame the third debate on Crowley — or even on Romney for being a shell-shocked weenie afraid to attack his opponent at his most vulnerable point. Here the blame lies squarely with the GOP for participating in the farce of setting up lame candidates to be ground under by the statist establishment.

If Republicans are capable of learning from the mistakes of the past two election debacles, two corrections will be made for 2016: 1) they will not agree to moderators who uniformly consist of left-wing ideologues and 2) the GOP candidate will be conservative and willing to win.

Conspirator in a farce.

On a tip from Bob Roberts.

    On behalf of everyone in the country to the Right of Dan Rather, may I be the first to say…

    Obama hires the best leftists propegandists comming from these leftists universities

  3. Sam says:

    And not a word about the leftists hired for the primary debates, which just made our side look like idiots for months on end.

    “at this point what difference does it make”?!?

  5. Skyfall says:

    The Republicans as a party are incapable of urinating on themselves. They are cowards. They are being so out-maneuvered in terms of public perception (via the press, social media, etc.) that they could (and I’d argue SHOULD) not win an uncontested race.

    I personally believe that Obama and those he desires to be in power cannot be touched at the moment, not only for political reasons, but due to a power beyond politics. That said, unless we get a new, conservative party run by younger, energetic people, the Repubs will be as remembered as the Whigs.

    But don’t discount Obama’s power. It’s real, it’s evil and he hasn’t even begun to show what he can do.

    Watch what happens with Obama in Israel next month. It might be obvious, it might be “between the lines”, but there is going to be big things resulting from that visit.

    Does it really make a difference….
    cheaters never win :

  8. RKae says:


    So when are they going to admit that Romney was a mistake?

    …Or McCain?

    …Or Dole, for that matter?

  9. Dr. 9 says:

    Be willing to win, and someone with the balls to fight back. Romney is a nice guy and “far more” qualified to be POTUS than the Marxist-in-Chief. But you don’t send a nice guy to a hatchet fight, especially when you know the other guy is holding most of the hatchets, as in, the MSM.

    But Carl Rove claims he is the one who can pick’em

    Dave, I found a better, more flattering picture of Creepy Crowley for you.

  12. The MaryHunter says:

    Does it make you physically ill, as it does me, to know that there is simply nothing that we can do to win away the Low Information Voters away from Government Propaganda MSM Machine? The very same voters who again gave us this abysmal so-called president?

  13. DebZeppelin says:

    Yeah, right. If future moderators were Maddow, Schultz, & Chelsea Clinton, the Republicans would STILL agree to it, wanting to appear as “good sports”. To have NOT brought up Benghazi during a debate on foreign policy and national security was made my head spin, and I can’t forgive the GOP for that, among many other things.

  14. T says:

    A long time after the fact wouldn’t you say. What are they going to do. Blame someone, it’s what people without the guts or balls do.

  15. name says:

    So sad that people still fall for that fairytale of the GOP as some sort of opposition party.

  16. John Knoefler says:

    I wish I had a dollar for every “conservative” that told me Ron Paul was “unelectable” over a truly inelegable Obama or told me to just hold my nose when I vote for Romney because he is the only chance we have of getting “our guy” in the White House. They played the same trick with Dole, McCain, and now the weak Romney. I saw this coming when Ron Paul was sidelined and ignored and then just gave up to avoid splitting the vote. I just decided to not participate and I refuse to participate until a truly conservative candidate is allowed to participate in ALL debates and not sidelined by “conservative” worshippers of the do nothing GOP. Even the TEA party is now being infiltrated by those who demand open borders. Open revolt and revolution are just around the corner. Stop funding these maniacs with tax dollars. Vote with your wallet from here on out.

    Fat, Hostile, Liberal, Lesbians can’t moderate.

    I love that picture of her. You know she’s well aware she’s full of shit and she tries to smile to keep a straight face.

  19. Jester says:

    None of this matters one whit. Obama’s re-immaculation had nothing to do with the “debates”; voter fraud was 100% responsible. Proof of this keeps emerging again and again, even now.

    “If Republicans are capable of learning from the mistakes of the past two election debacles”

    They aren’t. They’ve been doing it for decades. Anyone with an ounce of sense could have seen that one coming.
