Yeah, the moderator has NO business interjecting ANYTHING like that. She could have easily been wrong herself and impacted the integrity of the debate.

Candy showed her bias and her CNN brainwashing. Someone had to clue her in on the real truth since CNN makes up their own truth.

Leave the personal attacks for the libs and go after her for something substantive, like her bias. She had no business defending anyone. As moderator she needs to be completely objective which she failed to do.

You will lose credibility with your middle-school level jokes. Come on, man.

I'll third that. Her weight has nothing to do with her failing as a moderator.

She completely lacks credibility and even admitted she came prepared to defend Obama on that question, then when they had to admit she was completely wrong, the debate was over and she successfully derailed Romney's point (which was correct) he was driving home with Obama. She is now a laughing stock actually.

However, I blame the Republicans for always accepting the debates and moderators handed them, knowing they will be biased. The rules for this format were changed last night at the 11th hour and the RNC let them do it. Crowley was not supposed to be allowed to interject into the discussion and they changed it so she could. That is their own fault for agreeing to it.

The roll of the debate moderator is to keep the debate moving. Unfortunately, most in the media are all opinion and not journalism. I think if Candy Crowley turned on FoxNews shortly after the Libya ordeal she would have been informed Obama/Clinton/Rice and so many others were blaming a video. BTW: it was reported at the time of the attack, the video was seen by less than 300 people. She should be fired, just like Dan Rather.
