Think Progress did the math so we didn't have to. It was none other than "objective" Megyn Kelly who started the spin.
And the questions! 11 questions asked in all, and some of which will certainly be discussed tomorrow. Topics that we haven’t heard much about at all in this campaign — equal pay for women, in fact there were a lot of women’s issues discussed…abortion, contraception, women’s pay, as I mentioned. Some might argue it was obvious pandering to women because the female vote is so important in this election. As separate and apart from equal pay for women, we heard a discussion about assault weapons bans, a question to Mitt Romney about how are you different from President Bush, and then a question to President Obama,"What have you done to earn my vote?' The one question on foreign policy by my count was about Libya, and seemed to cover ground that we already knew the answer to: it was who denied the request for increased security? Well, we heard great testimony about that last week, there were State department officials who answered that question. So there will be some questions about those selections.
Yes, and we know who will be raising those questions endlessly in the week to come.
Oh, wait- that requires a desire to present facts. Carry on with your empty rhetoric.
Please let Mitt stand on his own two feet & take responsibility for his life. If you people at Fux Noize keep speaking for him he’ll look like one of those 47%-ers he’s written off.
“Some might argue” = “some people say” — Fox “News’” most trusted source
The left and moderate right were NOT happy with him- aside from his legendary level of incompetence, there were points where it was clear he would have given it to Romney on that question. Even if Romney’s response was throwing doody at him. The conservatives, on the other hand, were estatic. They knew that, even with his performance, Obama would have won on facts with a competent moderator, so that threw them a bone.
Fast forward to last night: Obama’s back in form, Romney’s still the same whiny bullyboy, and Candy Crowley isn’t in the mood to put up with shit from either of them. There were points where you could tell she wanted to tell him to stop wasting everyone’s time with the anectdotes, and she slapped down every attempt to “Leher” her.
Fox News can’t stop bashing her, Fox Nation is churning out hate towards her at a pretty rapid rate. Because she didn’t let Romney push her around. Stewart’s gonna have a field say with this, assuming he doesn’t dedicate all his time to Romney’s comments about women binders and self-deportation tonight.
