Mitt Romney was still harboring resentment toward Candy Crowley.
Hewitt asked about the moment in which Crowley corrected an assertion about the 2012 attack in Benghazi which she later admitted was a debatable assertion to make. "Did you feel she was unfair at that moment in the debate?" Hewitt asked.
"I don't think it's the role of the moderator in a debate to insert themselves into the debate and to declare a winner or a loser on a particular point," Romney replied.
"And I must admit that, at that stage, I was getting a little upset at Candy, because in a prior setting where I was to have had the last word, she decided that Barack Obama was to get the last word despite the rules that we had," he continued. "So she obviously thought it was her job to play a more active role in the debate than was agreed upon by the two candidates."
"I thought her jumping into the interaction I was having with the President was also a mistake on her part, and one I would have preferred to carry out between the two of us, because I was prepared to go after him for misrepresenting to the American people that the nature of the attack," Romney concluded.
Ann lamented what the country had lost out on.
Ann Romney isn't sad her husband lost the presidency for her sake — she's sad on behalf of America. And she still regularly runs into people who are sad Romney lost in 2012, probably at the country club.
The coulda-been-First Lady appeared on Fox News Friday morning to talk Mitt the movie (which is good) and, of course, Mitt the man who, his wife says, is "a pretty independent, wonderful guy."
Romney ("Best-selling author," per the chyron) "always believed [Mitt] was going to be the president of the United States," she tells Fox's Bill Hemmer. When he didn't: "We lost, but truly the country lost, by not having Mitt as president." Then she decides that she'll "be polite and nice and not comment" on how she actually thinks Obama's second term is going. We tried to guess her opinion on the topic and were unable to do so.
And last, but certainly least...
Sarah Palin continued to hold a grudge against Peggy Noonan.
"Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in '08?" Palin wrote, referring to Noonan's latest column.
"You joined the 'cool kids' in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we 'sit down and shut up.' Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..."
