Telling video frame: Crowley shuts down "Fast & Furious" -- on command
dfmpolitics.com (Second Debate: Video and transcript) ^ | 17 OCT 2012 | Crowley & Obama vs Romney

Posted on 10/17/2012 3:23:58 PM PDT by TXnMA

ROMNEY: The — the greatest failure we’ve had with regards to — to gun violence in some respects is what — what is known as Fast and Furious. Which was a program under this administration, and how it worked exactly I think we don’t know precisely, where thousands of automatic, and AK-47 type weapons were — were given to people that ultimately gave them to — to drug lords.

They used those weapons against — against their own citizens and killed Americans with them. And this was a — this was a program of the government. For what purpose it was put in place, I can’t imagine. But it’s one of the great tragedies related to violence in our society which has occurred during this administration. Which I think the American people would like to understand fully, it’s been investigated to a degree, but — but the administration has carried out executive privilege to prevent all of the information from coming out.

I’d like to understand who it was that did this, what the idea was behind it, why it led to the violence, thousands of guns going to Mexican drug lords. OBAMA: Candy?

CROWLEY: Governor, Governor, if I could, the question was about these assault weapons that once were once banned and are no longer banned.


Romney stops speaking and turns away in disgust, and Øbozo grins like a possum -- because his obedient, overfed, trained attack spaniel has leaped to his rescue -- at his command.


Bias? What bias...?

During the live debate. I noticed that Lard@$$ Crowley shut Romney down when he got too hot on Øbozo's case -- but on review of the video and transcript, it is obvious that she did it at Øbozo's command!!

The captured video frame says volumes: Romney is disgusted that he has just been double-teamed -- and Øbozo is grining like an obiden eating green persimmons -- because his trained lapdog has just saved his sorry @$$...

IMHO, Øbozo's is a pretty obscene expression, considering the subject is the murder of hundreds -- including a U.S. LEO... :-(

Every time Obama brings up “47%” - Romney should bring up the “AK-47s from Fast and Furious.”

A small point to go along with Crowley ambush. Obama must have been getting signals from someone in the audience when Romney’s time limit was over or close to the limit to interrupt him. I doubt Obama had a stop watch in his head.

I read it as a grin of relief -- because he knows he is literally getting away with murder -- and with satisfied glee because his b---h barked when he yanked her leash...

There was a big countdown timer there. You could occasionally see it during the debate.

I also think Crowley's now-infamous "save" of Obama, over the Benghazi question, was possibly evidence of collusion between Crowley and the Obama campaign.

I mean, how did it happen that Crowley just happened to have a hard copy of the transcript of Obama's speech in her hot little hand -- at the very moment Obama demanded, "check the transcript"?

And how did Crowley plough through thousands of words in the transcript to find the word "terror" in there, within about one second?

Is there any innocent explanation for this?

Others on FR have noted this. Yet I haven't seen any discussion of it elsewhere, even in the conservative media.

Romney should have said:

“Candy, I heard the question and I’m going to answer HIS question.”

You can’t distribute thousands of semi-auto and full-auto weapons to drug lords, with no plans or provisions to track them, and then claim that distribution was part of a sting or tracking operation.”

“The Bush administration executed a sting operation, but had the foresight to place tracking mechanisms in the weapons, AND they notified Mexican authorities that they were doing so.”
“President Bush cancelled his operation after determining the tracking mechanisms were being removed.”

“This Administration did neither, and NOW, he’s going to tell you how hard he’s been working to control assault weapons!”

Look at the video. There are flat-panel displays in the aisles -- displaying elapsed times.

IMHO, those numbers should be displayed continually at the top of the TV screen (plus running totals per candidate) so everyone can see how the time is really being allocated.

Candy never asked Obama to answer the person’s question when bloviated for 2+ minutes. There were at least 3 questions he didn’t answer:

Libya

Voted for you in 2008, why should I give you my vote in 2012?

Why were the security requests denied and who denied them?

Zero’s way of dealing with AK-47s is to send them to Mexican drug cartels and then blame Americans when the weapons are used to kill Mexican teenagers and our Border Patrol Agents.

Why do Republicans participate in these rigged “debates?”

Because the debates allow expression of good ideas to a wide audience, albeit under hostile circumstances. A better question might be, "Why don't liberal Democrats participate in a debate with Rush Limbaugh as the moderator?"

Republicans have met liberal Democrats on their own rigged turf and still wipe the floor with them when it comes to ideas that are best for a people who love freedom, smaller government, truth, and general moral rectitude.

“Don’t let her read her poetry!”

“Vogon poetry is, of course, the third worst in the universe. The second worst is that of the Azgoths of Kria. During a recitation by their poet-master, Grunthos the Flatulent, of his poem ‘Ode to a Small Lump Of Green Putty I Found In My Armpit One Midsummer Morning’, four of his audience died of internal haemorrhaging, and the president of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council survived by gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos was reported to have been “disappointed” by the poem’s reception, and was about to embark on a reading of his twelve - book epic entitled ‘My Favourite Bath-time Gurgles’, when his own major intestine, in a desperate attempt to save humanity, leapt straight up through his neck, and throttled his brain. The very worst poetry of all perished along with its creator, Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Greenbridge, in the destruction of the planet Earth.”

If she tries, perhaps her “own major intestine, in a desperate attempt to save humanity, (might) leap(t) straight up through his (her) neck, and throttled his (her) brain.

Given their relative differences in size and strength due to frequency of use, I believe that her own major intestine might just be up to the task.

On C-Span, a running total for speaking time was displayed at the bottom of the screen, and, in the end, Obama received about 3-4 minutes more of speaking time than Romney.

First, I agree! Let the audience know the truth, so that the Dems can't use this as an excuse to cut into Romney's answer time (which is one of the reasons Obama does it).

In all three of this cycle's debates, the Dem participants have continually begged the moderator to ensure they get their time. At the end of each debate, we have seen that the Dems had MORE time than the Reps. I think they mention their time tracking as a sort of "pre-emptive strike" and a subtle, subliminal message to the audience to suggest that they are getting shorted on time.

At the next debate, as soon as Obama mentions his "time concerns," Romney should tell Obama that he has had four years and an extra four minutes through the last two debates and he still has NOT explained his plan for the future other than doing the same thing as the last four years! SLAM him with that crap!

The video should be reviewed in great detail looking for this:

did zero have the questions in advance ?

I only saw a few barfy minutes of it, but IMHO, bozo came across as though he had thought about his answers to the questions beforehand.

It would not take much for Ol’ Crowly to zip off a copy to someone who sent them to someone, etc., as soon as she decided on them.

I don’t know when (for a fact, not a guess) when Crow received the questions to select from.

Maybe I’ll look for this for a few minutes.

Maybe Univision will come through for the truth again. They are extremely left wing, but they were angry about the murder of so many innocent Mexican citizens. Let's hope this sets the lousy POS back among Hispanic voters by a LOT!

I did a search for all occurrences of "OBAMA: Candy" in the transcript and...

Listening to the debate with the marked-up transcript in hand makes it pretty obvious that "Candy" from Øbozo -- while Romney was speaking -- was a genuine, pre-arranged "dog whistle" meaning that Crowley should interrupt Romney...

"Collusion" is the mildest term I can come up with to describe that perfidy...

~~~~~~~

Anyone know how we can get this in the hands of Rush or Levin for tomorrow's show prep?

Do you remember the applause at this point?

The audience had been instructed not to applaud during the debate, but applause did happen here.

And guess who initiated it?
FLOTUS did it.

As if FLOTUS would really remember the exact wording of that speech ..... unless the whole lot of them had been discussing that wording directly prior to the debate.

FLOTUS played her part by making it appear the audience was behind Obama.

I could not agree more. As far as getting in touch with Rush, I think he has 'Premium' site members that can get his attention through his channels. I may be mistaken but I believe that Kaslin is one. I have pinged him to this post.

Listen closely. I have several times. For a brief moment their were 2 or 3 that were clapping. There was only one set of hands that kept on clapping. Those belong to MO.

I would like to say more about it but I really need to shut up.
