Moderator Role Under Scrutiny — Before the Debate

In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how the moderator of the Tuesday town hall has publicly described her role, TIME has learned.

While an early October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns suggests CNN’s Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday-night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested she will assume a broader set of responsibilities. As Crowley put it last week, “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?’”

Hey Candy, you are only there to sing when the debate is over.

Why are ALL the moderators big time liberals??? Why no Chris Wallace, Brit Hume, Bret Baier.......

These are people with a history of being tough on people from both parties.

Better yet, Rush or Mark Levin (my choice).

Just imagine Rush Limbaugh as the moderator, AND he gets to pick his own questions.

After Martha Raddatz they should demand Rush for balance out of fairness. Actually, Rush would be more fair as a debate moderator than Raddatz.

Allowing the Candy Crowley pick is crazy.

Romney is up to the task though.

Obama has nothing to run on so he will have to BS like Biden.

We'll see, won't we?

FOX just announced that there has been a change in the role of the moderator (Candy) in the debate tonight. A question will be presented from a person and each candidate will hve two minutes to respond....THEN Candy can ask a question of her choosing.

I think that just served to make her intentions "legitimate".

oh well, as Heinlein's character Lazarus Long said,

"Of course the game is rigged, but you can't win if you don't play"

Look, if Obama is as retarted as we think he is (he is), Romney won't need moderator help.

It is hypocritical to be mad at Martha yet want Rush to do it.

Report: Rule Change Allows Candy Crowley To Steal Debate Spotlight

Fox News is reporting that Candy Crowley's desperate need to marginalize everyday American voters and steal the spotlight for herself during tonight's debate has just been formalized. Altering the original agreement with the debate commission, and under intense media pressure, both Obama and Romney have agreed to answer any questions asked by Ms. Crowley and her over-sized ego.

Regardless of whether the Fox News report pans out or not, Crowley's behavior these past few days has only served to reinforce every negative thing anyone has ever said about the corrupt media. Crowley's narcissistic preening before her media pals as she promises to insert herself into the debate and violate her contract, has been distasteful in the extreme.

Never before has a presidential debate moderator worked so hard to grab the spotlight and not let go. Crowley not only believes she's above things like her contract (her word); she also believes she's more important than the American people.

Another liberal moderator for the debates. Why don't we just declare the bama the winner and we can all become muslims.
