    The MSM never ceases to amaze me.

    My wife is a Diane Sawyer fan, so we watch the ABC Evening/World news
    with Diane Sawyer.

    Tonight she reported on the debate.

    She never mentioned the moderator Candy Crowley's at all when reporting
    on the debate.

    Candy defending Obama had to be the #1 talking point or the entire debate.
    Side with Candy or against Candy, you have to admit.... it was news !http://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...17b04c-1810-11e2-a346-f24efc680b8d_story.html

    ( I could go on & on with thes links - it was major news)

    At work, that is all anyone was taking about.

    What did Diane report on?
    She reported on Jeremy.... the dork who is worried about getting a job.
    Note to Jeremy.... If you want a job, stand up straight and have the
    hunch removed from your back.

    Jeremy is no longer undecided..... Diane with a big smile informed us that Jeremy is going to vote for Obama.

    Great !

    Just what we need.... Another food stamp applicant.

    Does anyone believe Jeremy was undecided before the debate?

    It used to be campaign news, now it's just campaigning. Fox does it for Romney and the rest do it for Obama

    I can't blame them for blaming Crowley for Rmoney's poor performance. Frankly, I thought Crowley's last question about what misconception do you think the other side is creating about you was a gift to Rmoney (that he also handled rather weakly). I suppose there are those who blame the refs for the Patriot's losses too. Are your colleagues like that? Out of curiosity what's the demographic makeup of these colleagues complaining about Crowley?

    Romney was not well prepared for this debate. He lost it. Candy's performance is a different issue entirely. The last question was like calling a make up, false start penalty after blowing the previous 10 calls with the game securely in hand for your team. She was out of line. Now it's obvious you're back to your white conservative male answer for everything. Please consider that white conservative males can be right about things just as much as other demographics can.

    I don't think she was at all out of line. There's nothing out of line about statements of fact. If anyone was out of line, it was Rmoney. A certain group of people are apparently upset that he got caught in bold face lie. lol

    This is what Crowley said:

    "He — he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that."

    As as far as white males, on the contrary, I'm speculating that Joe probably works with a highly diverse crowd of individuals. He's not all that conservative himself. It would be interesting to know what kinds of people he works with who are blaming the moderator for Rmoney's mistake. lol

    As much as you want it to, the medium is not the message...

    He did call it an act of terror but what Romney was clearly referring to was that Obama in the Rose Garden was painting a picture of a mob of insulted religious people overreacting to some Americans insensitivity to their religion. Crowley knew what Romney was getting at...that it was a planned terrorist act by a terrorist group, not a spontaneous mob out of control act of terror like what Obama had portrayed it as. The distinction is crystal clear and Crowley played along with Obamas mischaracterization. She realized what she had done and quickly tried to make amends by saying what you quoted. The point is the damage was already done and Romney looked like he was misinformed, even tough he wasn't. It was not her place to carry Obamas water for him especially when she knew damn well what Romney was getting at. Please try and keep things honest. Romney did not lie about what his premise was. He got dressed down over a word that Obama used in a completely different context than he is now claiming. It is Obama and a complicit Crowley that were out of line.

    This issue will be in the next debate somehow ... short of apologizing to the country for not being honest this is still an issue with some voters in this country. The question of the amount of security is one thing ... the question about the President's honesty is the crux of the topic ... and he lied and the country deserves answers.

    So are you trying to say that anyone who votes for Obama is on food stamps?

    The question is, would Diane & ABC have reported who Jeremy was voting for, if he had decided to vote for Romney? Hmm....:confused2:

    Is Diane Sawyer reporting that Obama never answered the Libya question?

    What do you think? Think about the entire Libya incident from start to finish. The media questioned nothing, and in many ways, still doesn't.

    The last debate is scheduled on the topic of foreign policy ... could be the best debate of all.

    Re: Diane Sawyer just told me Jeremy is voting for Obama, but she never mentioned Can

    Romney walked towards crowley and asked her to get the transcript, to which she responded "he did call it an act of terror".....Mittens Asked crowley for the correct answer, its not like she just jumped in on her own accord. Flipper screwed up its his own fault. Ive heard the rose garden presser at lest a half a dozen times today, obama does say no act of terroism, he does call it terrorism. Maybe the trouble is tha Mitt is relying on right wing web sites like newsmax for his information.

    Re: Diane Sawyer just told me Jeremy is voting for Obama, but she never mentioned Can


    If I'm not mistaken, he was referring to 9/11 when in the rose garden. Furthermore, as long as 2 weeks later, he was in front of the UN and repeatedly blamed the video for the incident. Meanwhile we've learned that there was no demostration. That it was a coordinated terrorist attack from the go. That there was word of the potential for an attack prior, and that the ambassador had requested additional security and was rebuffed. Yet the media, most of it at least, has remained quiet. I don't think the american public is being done any favors here. We were told that this was going to be the most transparent administration in history, yet here we have seen no such thing. Is it the end of the world as we know it? Will the nation crumble because of the attacks that day? Of course not. Life will certainly go on. Still, it would be nice to know we were being told the truth, or that since we actually weren't, the media would do it's job to expose that. The media can sit together at a Romney press conference and plot questions to ask a candidate, but when it comes to their wet dream, we get nothing.

    Ron Jeremy?

    If so thank God... balance in the porn community at last! Jenna Jameson signed on with Mitt. I always said, she'd swallow anything...

    Not anyone who votes for Obama is on food stamps but it's a good bet that anyone who is on food stamps will certainly vote for Obama.
