Response to Oilwellian (Original post)

28. Great post (and LOVE THE PICS! Especially the 2nd one), but I don't see how really. Only because

it doesn't work quite as well without Candy doing the "on-site fact checking". And he couldn't have known she was necessarily do that.

Just incredible instincts at an incredible time. Without her doing that, it could have become just another "Yes I did" "No you didn't" type of moment. President Obama hit what GWB would have called a "trifecta": a brilliant President Obama sensing the moment, a fumbling, bumbling Mitt to step in it, and Candy to call him out on it. My favorite moment of ANY debate in HISTORY. Well, except for maybe Bush the Smarter checking his watch.
