Crowley skews hard for Obama in disastrous debate

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Another debate, another debacle for America’s media.

In the runup to the second presidential debate, CNN [2]’s Candy Crowley [3] declared that she would not just be a “fly on the wall” as she played the tiny role of moderator, that she would step in whenever she chose to say, “Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?”

And boy did she, cutting off Republican Mitt Romney [4] repeatedly and often throwing the floor to President Obama with an open “let me give the president a chance here.”

More, she alone decided the topics for the debate, picking questions from the 80 so-called “undecided” voters chosen by the Gallup [5] polling organization. Her selections were tailor-made for Mr. Obama — Mitt Romney [4]’s tax plan, women’s rights and contraception, outsourcing, immigration, the Libya [6] debacle (which gave Mr. Obama to finally say that the buck stops with him, not, as Hillary Clinton [7] said, with her).

She even chose this question, directed to both men: “I do attribute much of America’s economic and international problems to the failings and missteps of the Bush administration [8]. Since both of you are Republicans, I fear the return to the policies of those years should you win this election. What is the biggest difference between you and George W. Bush [9], and how do you differentiate yourself from George W. Bush [9]?”
