The Debate's Outcome In One Picture



Candy Crowley Fact Checks Mitt Romney On Libya

Presidential debate moderator Candy Crowley corrected a testy Mitt Romney after the Republican presidential candidate charged that President Obama failed to call the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi an "act of terror."

More than an hour into the debate, an undecided voter in the town hall forum asked the president about the recent attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three additional Americans.

When Romney responded to the question, Romney charged that it took Obama days to call the Benghazi attack an act of terror. This assertion was incorrect. Obama called the incident an "act of terror" during his remarks on September 12, just one day after the tragedy.

Obama interjected, telling the Republican presidential candidate to "get the transcript" of his remarks. When the governor doubled down on his charge, Crowley corrected him, saying the president "'did in fact' call the attack an act of terror.

12. Amazes me that he seems unaware there are CAMERAS in the room

In his role as candidate, and in a Presidential role, there are always cameras capturing almost every moment, and you can bet the best, and the worst, pics will be seen.
how can he be unaware of that????
