Biased Moderator, Candy Crowley, Sides Incorrectly with Obama

This year, Americans will be subjected to another presidential election season of unfair and unbalanced debates.
After two debates, the American public has seen liberal Jim Lehrer of PBS exercising no control over the proceedings and liberal Martha Raddatz of ABC allowing Vice President Joe Biden to interrupt Congressman Paul Ryan 82
At other times she was the seasoned ABC News war correspondent who kept the two guys in suits taking snarky swipes at each other in line.
“What does that mean, ‘a bunch of stuff?’” Raddatz asked Biden.
Moderator on the hot seat The role of the debate moderator Perspective from a moderator The 2012 debate moderators Raddatz also pressed for specifics such as when she demanded of Ryan: “I want to know how you do the math and have this increase in defense spending?”
Lehrer, the moderator of last week’s presidential debate in Denver comes under continued fire from his professional colleagues, radio giant Rush Limbaugh is predicting a different tack by the media in charge of the next debate between President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
“Here’s the thing to look out for. The thing to look out for is the moderator in the next debate,” Limbaugh said Tuesday afternoon.
I knew President Obama was miserable when he tried to give debate moderator Jim Lehrer the Puss-in-Boots eyes. “You may want to move on to another topic,” Obama implored Lehrer, a bit like a motorcycle thief begging a cop to take him into custody rather than let him stay with the surly biker gang that caught him.
I had halfway noticed this situation during the debate but didn’t really consider the implications until she commented.I went back and fast forwarded through the debate. Romney would look at Obama for significant periods, but Obama only occasionally glanced at Romney before looking away or looking down.An obvious explanation for Obama not looking at Romney is that Obama felt intimidated by Romney.
The debates cannot resolve differences on issues because the responses are too short. Romney apparently recognizes that the debates allow a candidate to show who has the strongest personality and would be best able to stand up to the leaders of other countries, the leaders of special interest groups and congressional opponents.Watching one’s opponent is important in verbal combat as well as in physical combat. A boxer watcheshis opponent to look for an opening for a punch or an indication of what type of punch the opponent may throw.
