The co-chair for Presidential Debates said today what all of us knew the night of the second Presidential debate between Romney and Obama: Candy Crowley was a disaster.
As you may recall, she decided to toss the roll of moderator and actually began debating with Romney on Obama’s side. Not only that, but she was totally wrong on the facts, and was forced to admit it after the debate.
Frank Fahrenkopf, a co-chair of the Commission on Presidential Debates, said tonight that the Commission made a “mistake” by selecting CNN anchor Candy Crowley to moderate one of the 2012 presidential debates.
Fahrenkopf, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, was speaking at the Las Vegas Country Club in Nevada. According to Jon Ralston, the Nevada-based political journalist, Fahrenkopf told the audience there that he was proud of the 2012 debate moderators, but added: “We made one mistake this time: Her name is Candy.”
The debate moderators were all liberals, but Candy Crowley was by far the worst.
