Shameful: Lapdog Media Cheers Obama at Debate

Posted by on Oct 17, 2012 at 7:33 am

We could have sworn the folks at the debate were instructed by that hack Candy Crowley not to cheer last night, but apparently the media doesn’t have to play by the rules.

The room set aside for reporters to watch Tuesday night’s debate erupted into applause after President Obama ridiculed the size of Mitt Romney’s personal wealth.

Mr. Romney was trying to make the point that both his and Mr. Obama’s investment funds probably include investments in China — something the president has attacked Mr. Romney for.

“Mr. President, have you looked at your pension?” Mr. Romney said.

“You know, I don’t look at my pension. It’s not as big as yours, so it — it doesn’t take as long,” Mr. Obama retorted. His reply prompted laughter in the debate hall where the two men were squaring off — but across the way in the separate room where the press was stationed, a brief round of applause broke out.

Yeah, imagine our surprise Obama lapdogs cheered. Meanwhile, his wife also helped lead the applause another time.

At the very beginning of the Hofstra University presidential debate, “moderator” Candy Crowley announced the rules of the road and noted that the “audience has agreed to be polite and attentive — no cheering, no booing, or outbursts of any sort.”

But many debate watchers on Twitter noticed that First Lady Michelle Obama — in bright pink in the bottom right-hand corner of the cutaway shown on Fox News (we’ve screen-capped it above) — clapped loudly, vigorously, and ostentatiously during the shameful Obama/Crowley tag-team against Romney over what the president said in the Rose Garden about Benghazi.

Rules are for the little people.

Much like the VP debate, this was a tag-team affair against the GOP. Shocker, huh?

Meanwhile, Crowley later admitted she was wrong with her pathetic attempt to prop up Obama.

Considering how slanted the questions were (all selected by Crowley herself), that Romney didn’t bomb is a plus for him, so even if undecideds see the debate as a draw this won’t move the needle back toward Obama. But the GOP, moving forward, needs to get with the program and avoid this absurd town hall format. The deck is always stacked against them.

    I don’t know how this country will survive with such biased media, which is so dangerous for our country. Does MSM not understand that the tables can turn on them? I think somehow, someway the American people need to get educated before the country is destroyed from within. By the way, BHO got 4 more minutes than Romney. Same with Biden/Ryan debate.

    When/if Romney wins the election, every WH press briefing should begin with asking the press corps to be seated. This tape then runs. Then Press Secretary Gingrich should commence speaking……

    Life imitates art! The Republicans remind me of Charlie Brown naively trusting in Lucy not to pull the ball away at the last second. She always does, and he always ends up flat on his back.

    Republicans keep agreeing to these ridiculous debate set ups with liberal shills acting as moderators, but then they are genuinely shocked when they are sandbagged by the moderators.

    Democrats cheat. It’s in their DNA. Best get used to it and plan accordingly. Mitt did fine, considering the deck was thoroughly stacked against him. He may have landed flat on his back, but he got back up, dusted himself off, and charged back into the fray. Good on ya, Mitt!

    What a disgrace. This is the way this woman decided to end her career. It was either here or an In N Out with a $50 bill.
