CNN and The Obama Administration Weapons of Misdirection
The Conservative Treehouse ^ | October 17, 2012 | Sundance

Posted on 10/17/2012 7:07:08 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

Watching it unfold on live TV it did not seem right. It was awkwardly and comfortably scripted, and too smooth in execution. But watching it on replay the agenda filled manipulation was obvious. It appears Candy Crowley and CNN together with the Obama Administration scripted the Libyan injection into the Presidential Debate.I’m not just talking about Candy Crowley interjecting on behalf of President Obama, and interrupting Mitt Romney, I mean the whole segment was a set up. So we did a little research:

Candy Crowley told Erin Burnett on CNN’s show Out Front, Monday Night 10/15, that she had collected the questions from the invited and vetted debate audience at Hofstra University and was reviewing them. This was Monday on the 7pm broadcast of Erin Burnett.

When the question on Libya was asked by audience member Kerry Ladka, he prefaced the question by saying:

….this question actually comes from my, err, um, a brain trust of my friends at Global Telecom Supply in Mineola yesterday, we were sitting around talking about Libya…

If Candy Crowley already had the audience questions assembled the day before, how could Kerry Ladka and his brain trust friends have been writing one?

After so many lies, the ‘house of lies’ cannot stand under its own weight of scrutiny. They lie with so much abandon now, that they don’t have time to cover their trail. It’s so obvious now. They are all SERIAL LIARS!!!!!

After thinking about it I think Romney got a gift on the Libya issue last night. Up until now the adminstration position has been that they simply never really knew it was terrorism. They said they had bad intel every time they said it wasn't.

Last night Obama said he claimed it was terror on Sept 12th. Romney made him own that by asking him to repeat it. And Candy Crowley made it unforgettable. Okay, so Obama now is saying that he knew on Sept 12 that it was terror. Then that means he lied on "The View" and at the UN and every where else he went and said it was over a video. And he can't walk that back now and say "well when I said that the intel was saying..." unless he says he lied at the debate when he said he knew it was terror on the 12th.

People say Romney made a mistake by asking Obama to get it on the record about the Rose Garden speech. Maybe, but the result is that Obama admitted to participating in a false story (i.e. a coverup) in the weeks that followed.

The MSM will not hold him accountable for lies—the LEFT believes that lies are just strategy, and truth is merely an inconvenience.

CNN has a multi-million dollar appeal languishing in Obama’s stacked NLRB (NLRB Case 05-CA-031828).
the administrative-law judge (an Obama donor) already ruled against CNN in 2009 .
Their appeal has since set before the 4 member NLRB board: 3 of them Obama appointees.

Tonight was a 2+ million dollar payday (I estimate- not a labor lawyer) for CNN.

“The American People are offended that you would pretend a video is responsible for your foreign policy failures!”

Romney should have said......

“I am an undecided voter and after witnessing the failed policies of Fidel Alejandro Castro, who is of the same party as Mr. Obama, I would like to know what makes you, Mr. President, any different from Fidel Alejandro Castro the Cuban communist revolutionary and politician, what policies makes you any different then Fidel Alejandro Castro?”

Never never never forget that the missing anti-aircraft missiles happened on Obama’s and Hillary’s watch.

Oh, it's going to come back alright. Bigtime.

**********************************************************

MR. ROMNEY: Yeah, I — I certainly do. I certainly do. I — I think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror. You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed.

MR. ROMNEY: Is that what you're saying?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed, Governor.

MR. ROMNEY: I — I — 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.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Get the transcript.

MS. CROWLEY: It — he did in fact, sir.

So let me — let me call it an act of terrorism — (inaudible) —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (Laughter, applause.)

MS. CROWLEY: 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 of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.

MR. ROMNEY: This — the administration — the administration — (applause) — indicated that this was a — a reaction to a — to a video and was a spontaneous reaction.

MS. CROWLEY: They did.

MR. ROMNEY: It took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act by a terrorist group and — and to suggest — am I incorrect in that regard? On Sunday the — your — your secretary or —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Candy —

MR. ROMNEY: Excuse me. The ambassador to the United Nations went on the Sunday television shows and — and spoke about how this was a spontaneous reaction.

This from one commenter:

This is absolutely too much. Get the transcript !!!

Why would the moderator just happen to have that particular transcript?

How would Obama know that she had the transcript to tell her to get it?

How could she produce one particular transcript and read and digest it so quickly if she was loaded down with multiple important transcripts?

But then again why would a moderator have a collection of transcripts?

She is not a fact checker. It is just not her job.

This stinks of collusion

Strike the middle name. It kills the impact of your otherwise devastating analogy.
