    There is serious concern about the moderator chick. Please read her statements.

    “. . .While an early October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns and the bipartisan commission sponsoring the debates suggests CNN’s Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday-night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested she will assume a broader set of responsibilities. As Crowley put it last week, “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about
    X, Y, Z?’”. . .

      Wow! Thanks for this info, Sam. My question is and has always been, why do the liberals always get the moderators in these debates? Last week with the VP debate, Martha Raddatz cut off Paul Ryan each time he tried to respond to the clownish histrionics of Joe Biden. Tonight’s moderator Candy “Big Hunk” Crowley is the sister-in-law of uber liberal Alan Colmes.

        that is monica crowley who is related to alan colmes.
        this broad displayed all the left leaning favoritism without being related..

    We’ve all heard that this is the most crucial election in our lifetime, and that couldn’t be more true. Paul Ryan did us all proud in the VP debate last week. And tonight, Mitt will get another chance to show America what’s at stake on November 6th — four more years of what simply hasn’t worked, or a new path leading to a real recovery.

    Gallup’s polling — never known to be with conservatives….most recent numbers show Romney at 50%, and Obama dropping to 46% among likely voters. Romney is also coming in strongly among women. It’s great news!

    Once again we saw why people call the GOP “The Stupid Party.”

    The jackasses and fools who make up the GOP leadership allowed not one, not two and not three of the moderators be liberal Democrats; they allowed all four.

    “Reince Priebus” is Lithuanian for “Kick me.”
