Obama tells Candy Crowley ‘get the transcript’ – she reads from transcript during debate on ‘act of terror’ to correct Romney’s claim (Video)

candy-crowleyWatch again the exchange between Mitt Romney and Obama during the last debate when the issue of Benghazigate came up. Listen to how Obama tells Candy Crowley to ‘get the transcript’ after Romney asks Obama if he called the Benghazi terrorist attack an ‘act of terror’ in the rose garden before he popped off the Las Vegas for a fund raiser. Like a good lapdog, Crowley retrieves the transcript to ‘correct’ Romney and protect Obama. She later appeared on the CNN post debate recap to admit Mitt Romney was in fact right that Obama never referred to the actual terrorist attack in Bengahzi as an ‘act of terror.’ But this begs the question. Why did Candy Crowley have the transcript with her in the first place, and how did Obama know she had it on her? Something very fishy went on here.

BTW, speaking of ‘fact-checking’ why didn’t Crowley ‘fact-check’ Obama when he falsely claimed that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms to women? No transcript provided there Candy?

    Heck with the transcript. Watch the video…no where does he say “this was a terrorist attack.” http://www.forextv.com/forex-news-story/full-transcript-of-obama-s-rose-garden-speech-after-sept-11-benghazi-attack At about 4:18 he talks generally about acts of terror, but he’s talking in generalities. For two weeks after this statement it was “video, video, video.” How many Libyans actually even saw the video?

      this is EXACTLY what i’ve been arguing on this site for a week and people still believe they saw

      -crowley waive blue papers at romney
      -crowley read from the transcript
      -crowley *showed* the transcript to romney
      -crowley handed the transcript to romney so he could read it

      -one guy even said ALL OF THE VIDEO ONLINE HAS BEEN EDITED to remove what actually happened and replace it with a version that has the transcript removed.

      these people……..they’re morons.

    This is really important. Why aren’t more people focused on this? Did the Obama campaign give her the transcript ahead of time because they were preparing this?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GMQNOW5SLTJX3KCRK5BEXR55DQ yahoo-GMQNOW5SLTJX3KCRK5BEXR55DQ

      “Did the Obama campaign give her the transcript ahead of time”

      no. and the evidence is that she didn’t have the transcript.

  • http://www.preciseNews.us/ Steven_W

    1) The Obama campaign clearly directed her ahead of time, gave her the transcript, etc.
    2) Next time you hear the 9/12 statement from the Rose Garden note that he first refers to 9/11 anniversary being the day before, then says “acts of terror” and then, after a pause, in the next paragraph he refers to “MORE Americans” dying in Libya. Thus, “acts of terror” clearly referred to 9/11 and “MORE” referred to the Libya incident.
    3) Romney was wise to note the statement and wait until Monday to NAIL Obama to the wall on this one. Now that Obama has admitted he knew, they saw the consulate events in real time to know, and then he went out and lied for weeks, sent his people out to lie for him and even went to the UN and never addressed the matter officially as an act of terror (still hasn’t formally submitted anything to the UN in these regards) and said it was the video. Obama set everything up and hoped to lay to bed. Unfortunately for Team-O facts are stubborn things!

    she did not have the transcript.

    where are you people getting this?

      From the video. You’ll have to open your eyes.

        not any video of that evening, because she did not have the transcript and obama did not tell her to show him the transcript.

        i’ve said this about 20 times now. i’ve posted videos, i’ve given specific timestamps for where to watch.

        now it’s your turn.

        post a link to a video and tell me exactly where to watch and what to look for.

        because honestly you are full of sh!t and are making up what you want to have happened, and not what happened in any reality the rest of us are living in.

            1:31 / 1:28 of what?

            i’ve said about 200 times that obama said “get the transcript” so i have no idea why you’re saying i didn’t. what I went on to say was ROMNEY said obama did not say it was a terrorist attack. obama then said, TO ROMNEY, get the transcript…..TO ROMNEY. crowley didn’t have it and she didn’t show anything to romney.

            if you want me to watch a video, tell me where to find it.

          • Jake

            He says “get the transcript” to Romney. Only a moron would go so far out of his way to fabricate such a stupid assertion.

  • ASDF

    You can see her actually looking at the transcript, which initially was in front of her then she moved it to HER left, then shifted it back in front of her.. She was looking at in advance of confirming the ‘act of terror’ quote. Watch her paper-shifting in the video.. IT’S CLEAR THIS WAS A COORDINATED OCCURRENCE BEFORE THE DEBATE. WOW.

      “You can see her actually looking at the transcript”

      no you can’t, because it wasn’t there.

  • Mike

    I want Obama out, but I did not see Candy with the transcript. She had the general outline of what the next question would be and who was going to ask it. If she did have the transcript, she wouldn’t have backed up Obama.

    Crowley was obviously in on the fix. She’s a stooge and confederate for the Obama team in this. Yes….the fact that Obama directs her to the transcript of a speech he gave weeks ago is fishy. In fact…it stinks on ice. I wish Romeny’s team would focus on this….and make sure Americans know the collusion that took place here.

      said, TO ROMNEY, get the transcript…..TO ROMNEY. crowley didn’t have
      it and she didn’t show anything to romney.

  • tyrone

    All of you who deny Obama called the event an “Act of terror” are so stupid! Lol. He said it on the 12th and again on the 13th. Romnesia has affected all of your brains. His whole speech was addressing the event in Libya. It doesn’t matter how all of the other folks had different opinions for days afterward. His initial opinion on the situation was “Acts of terror”! Bottom line!

    Let’s look at what bush said on 9-11:
    Good evening. Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices — secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers. Moms and dads. Friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

    (Just like Obama he did not say where until lines down the speech, yet you all found a way to “ASSUME” he was talking about New York because he was giving the speech after the event.)

    I asked this question day after the debate. No one is talking about it at all.. Why did she have the transcript and how did O know? And, yahoo-GMQNOW5SLTJX3KCRK5BEXR55DQ, what is the evidence she did not have the transcript. O said to get it…

      where is the evidence she didn’t have a bengal tiger in her skirt?? prove that she didn’t!!

      (i can’t believe you asked me to prove a negative)

      ROMNEY said obama did not say it was a terrorist attack. obama then said, TO ROMNEY, get the transcript…..TO ROMNEY. crowley didn’t have it and she didn’t show anything to romney.

    • Jake

      What makes you say she had a transcript? There is absolutely no evidence she had a transcript. She didn’t even want to contradict Romney, he forced her to by returning to the subject over and over again.

    0bama hatched a plan with the Crow to pull this stunt off when Romney called him on the carpet for this.

  • scruffthemuff

    Obama & Cindy Crowley are in cahoots! Cindy Crowley drove her teenage daughter across state lines to see Obama announce his presidential election in 2008! She did a terrible job being a fair and balanced moderator and hopefully will never have the honor in future presidential debates. The point is Obama is an incompetent president and is in ‘over his head’ and is not truthful to the American people.

    • Jake

      Hey that’s all great, but who’s Cindy Crowley?
      Anyone who would go through all the trouble of writing up a post on a subject where he doesn’t even know the subjects name may actually not have much credibility.

    • Cathy

      The Republicans were fools to agree to have all liberal moderators for the debates. Fox has some excellent people like Chris Wallace, Brett Bair and Megan Kelly who would have done a good, fair job. Crowley just happened to have Obama’s quote in front of her. Give me a break! I saw that one coming, and if I saw I, everyone else should have, too.

      I think we should all boycott the liberal media until they inject some fairness into their coverage. Of course, I am already boycotting them as I don’t read any of the liberal papers or watch their junk shows. If we had a good journalist out there, they could do a great expose like Woodward and Bernstein did on Watergate. Bengahzi is another Watergate only it has four dead Americans. Obama needs to be impeached because he has lied about this entire thing, but no one will ever tell the truth. He is one arrogant SOB.

  • Jake

    The President didn’t tell Candy to get the transcript, he told Romney to “read the transcript”. Candy clearly didn’t read a transcript, she merely knew that the President had referred to the attack as an act of terror the following day. You guys are grasping at straws.

  • Jake

    Planned Parenthood refers millions of women to doctors who perform mammograms.

  • LSCHULZ101

    I am very surprised nobody pointed out, whether he said it or not, and let’s just say he did….Act of Terror NOT Terrorist Attack….Act of Terror could be rape, assault, kidnapping, assault, murder…..Act of Terror is very general in itself and does NOT MEAN TERRORIST ATTACK. PERIOD.
