Next up is the dreaded “Town Hall” debate format. Or at least it used to be dreaded. Tuesday’s debate will amount to little more than faux spontaneity. The supposedly random questions are all pre-screened and rehearsed and will be directed to pre-selected members of the audience.
This debate is so controlled that both the Obama and Romney campaigns have lodged complaints with the Commission on Presidential Debates because the Moderator, Candy Crowley of CNN, had the TEMERITY to say she would ask follow up questions based on the candidate’s answers.
And the Commission ruled in the candidates favor and have kiboshed Ms. Crowley’s wish to question the candidates off the pre-written script.
ORWELL, PAGING GEORGE ORWELL…
I can see why Romney would be concerned. But Obama! She’s a CNN correspondent! The only thing I can think of as to why Obama would be concerned about Ms. Crowley is if it’s some kind of “Psy-Op” where the President wants to act like they were concerned about her too when she sets up Romney for the fall.
For some unknown reason, I’m not worried about Ms. Crowley.
I find her to be kind of a loose cannon. And CNN didn’t do Obama any favors by publishing excerpts from the dead Ambassador’s diary from our Consulate in Benghazi. Which is irrefutable evidence that they needed REAL security and it was not provided.
She’s been a great Secretary of State- dare I say the best since Kissinger?
Why would she take the fall for this if she still wants to be President? I voted for her in the primary and wish she was in the White House over Obama to this day!
What can Obama do on Tuesday to reverse the calamity that was the first debate?
And any changes made by Obama may appear desperate and/or a flip flop by the President…
