This is the first time ever that I have taken in the debates, both the presidential and vice-presidential. Currently viewing tonight’s debate, I’m thoroughly disgusted with Candy Crowley’s performance. And this is a performance. She appears to be too full of her role in the debate, taking it upon herself to restate questions and press for further answers—but allowing President Obama an extra opportunity to respond to the question. She has yet to give Romney such a chance and she’s absolutely wrong with regard to the timekeepers working to keep things on track. Perhaps if she shuts up, the timekeeping WOULD work and the people there who are waiting to ask a question could actually get their questions out!
Unlike four years ago, I’ve kept fairly quiet during this race. There is enough negativity going around without me adding to it. But again, this debate has just sent me over the edge! News personalities such as Lehrer, what’s her name, and now Crowley—they don’t belong in a moderator’s seat!
