The most telling moment of the debate.
(NY TIMES is calling it Romney's Rose Garden Moment)
where one saw clearly what a real dick Rrongney really is was when Benghazi
came up. Barack had just made his point and rebutted Rrongney forcefully invoking
the seriousness of the matter in a very presidential way. Crowley was ready to move on to another question but Mitt just had to, just had to get some dickishness in......!
ROMNEY: Yes, I — I...
CROWLEY: ... quickly to this please.
ROMNEY: I — I think interesting the president just said something which — which is that on the day after the attack he went into the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror.
OBAMA: That's what I said.
ROMNEY: You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror.
It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you're saying?
OBAMA: Please proceed governor. (that was a ninja moment for Barack!)
ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror. (Governor proceeding to put foot in mouth....)
OBAMA: Get the transcript.
CROWLEY: It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. So let me — let me call it an act of terror...
OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?
CROWLEY: He — he did call it an act of terror.
The crowd which had been very quiet and serious up until that moment, chuckled.
R R O N G N E Y!!!!!!!!!!!
Video of the carnage at CNN
Funny I just watched the clip again. I now think it was even more brilliant. I think Barack prepped the rope at the beginning of his response. He called Romney "Governor" several times forcefully while recounting his Benghazi response and I think it was meant to irk Mitt, who almost fell over himself gnawing to get a chance to respond!
Thanks for the Rec. It was a real gotcha moment of dickishness.
I just heard CNN talk about it as a fact check, but it was really
a window into the hole in the soul of the man and the contrast in absolute
intelligence, candor, and respect, that is our potus....
Good morning! Just seeing all the additional comments posted last night and smiling. I love the video posted by FONSIA below where in 2008 Obama had a warning Mitt should have studied.... but instead he got Crushed in his Rose Garden Moment!
