The entire night Obama was interrupting and shouting 'not true' 'not true'...until Romney answered this one question on Libya...Obama sat quietly with a smug look on his face and said 'go ahead governor'. He baited Romney to continue. Then he quietly looked at Crowley and said 'get the transcript'. How did he know she had the transcript? This was so obviously planned even as it was happening, my jaw was dropping. How is it that no one has addressed the elephant in the room?

Just how badly did CNN's Candy Crowley destroy her first (and hopefully last) attempt as a presidential debate moderator? More than 65 million people saw that she is to debate moderation as CNN is to "news."

Barack Obama made a fatal mistake when he lied, claiming he'd labeled the Libya attack as an act of terrorism. The look on Romney's face said it all: Mr. President, here comes checkmate.

Then Crowley leapt to Obama's defense, declared a lie a truth, changed the subject, and Obama was free.

It was a travesty.

Let's get beyond the perennial partisan toe-taggers Rachel Maddow...
