When I read that the site of the second debate between the Businessman and the Muslim was going to be at Hosftra University I knew the fix was in…
I went to that school (many, many moons ago) it is a commuter college on Long Island, bluer than blue bastion of intolerant liberal behavior. Now I like the Jewish People (at school I just loved the Jewish girls) but the actions of the New York Liberal Jew is a mystery to me. Add to that the proximity of a large urban black population which will, of course, be heavily represented in the audience and CNN’s Candy Crowley as moderator…Ambush!
Michelle Makin is trying to sound the alarm…
But Crowley is already making noises that she plans to circumvent the agreed-upon rulesand take control:
In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how the moderator of this Tuesday’s town hall has publicly described her role, TIME has learned.
While an early-October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns suggests that CNN’s Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday-night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested that she will assume a broader set of responsibilities. As Crowley put it last week, “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?’”
That sounds fair <sarc/off>
And then of course, they will be the shills…
I know why Mitt Romney agreed to this poison pit location, the Media has done a great job of shutting down all
favorable neutral not-negative coverage of his campaign. These “debates” are the only chance he is going to get to get his character shown to the American public, but this is going to be ugly, very ugly.
