Final presidential debate: Unanswered questions
How did Pres Obama know????
In the second Presidential debate, moderated by Candy Crowley, there was a heated exchange between the candidates about what was or wasn't said by the President about the murders in Benghazi.
Did Pres Obama call it a terrorist attack in the Rose Garden or not?
We can parse words and play semantics, but what hasn't really made the news is the President's actions DURING THE DEBATE ITSELF.
It appears that Pres Obama HAD PRIOR KNOWLEDGE that Ms. Crowley had the transcript and was ready to immediately offer a supportive counter to Gov Romney's claim!!!
Watch around minute 2:00 in the video on CNN's article. http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/18/politics/fact-check-crowley-critics-debate/index.html?hpt=hp_t2
The exchange was:
ROMNEY: You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you're saying?
OBAMA: Please proceed governor.
ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.
OBAMA: Get the transcript.
CROWLEY: It -- it -- it -- he did in fact, sir. So let me -- let me call it an act of terror...
OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?
Was there collusion between CNN and the Obama campaign?
How did he know she had the transcript?
How did he know she could and would obediently defend him immediately?
Why did he allow Gov Romney to "proceed" on this occasion, but not at other times, unless he was trying to "set him up"?
IMO, that exchange was VERY suspicious.
Do others see the same?
