The Obama-Romney rumble/debate of 10/16 was lively. Both candidates did seem to land some punches. Unlike the first debate, I did not see any definite winner. It was at best a draw. Though I have heard talking-heads make winner claims for both candidates. The moderator Candy Crowley certainly did her best to shield and advance Obama. One estimate I saw said she gave Obama 3 minutes more time talking than Romney. Plus when Romney had Obama fumbling for a straight answer about his knowledge surrounding the attack on our Libyan Embassy by terrorists ; Crowley stepped in to shield Obama by using her moderator control in shutting Romney from going in for the knockout punch. Evidently Crowley admitted –after the debate– that Romney’s statement was mostly correct but she stepped in because he worded his statement incorrectly. Huh! 🙄 Despite being the Clueless Socialist-wannabe that he is, I still think Obama will win the election. Obama’s worshiping disciples in the media, like Crowley, will use their media tentacles to push him into a second term.
