My question is, why did Candy, just happen to have the transcript of the rose garden speach conventlionally ready to support his story ? I thought the definiton of a moderator {according to Webster} was a nonpartisan presiding officer.

Not only did she "just happen" to have the transcript, Obama "just happened" to know she had it.

It was planned ahead of time, obviously.

In form, President Obama came back strongly in Tuesday's debate with Mitt Romney, but substantively he continues to lag behind the Republican candidate. That's because the president has a record to defend and it isn't a good one.

Television being what it is, the president looked and sounded good, but the air seems to have gone out of his messianic balloon as voters focus more on facts and less on spin.

If promises mean anything -- and they don't to most politicians -- Romney hit the president where it hurts: on his failure to live up to most of his promises.
