I wasn't on here when this happened but to me it was the most stunning thing I have ever seen on television.

Remember when Obama said to Candy Crowley during the debate: "Look at the transcript."

How did he know she had that transcript in front of her? Was that explained? Is it normal for the moderator to come prepared with supporting documents for potential claims made in debates? Is it normal for them to bring any documents besides the questions and debate schedule? If it is normal, is it normal for the President to have advanced knowledge of the debate moderators resources? Please help.

Don't we often say things like, "look at the Constitution?"

I don't know about you, but I don't know a single person that has a copy of the constitution on them at all times. I certainly don't have.

Interesting. So your explaination is: When Obama looked at Candy Crowley, gestured towards her with his hand and said "get the transcript" he was just using a figure of speech and it was merely coincidental that she in fact had the transcript in front of her? Is that right?

I would think so, yes.
Even if Romney had said it I would think so.

I should also point out how that is a terrible analogy since Candy Crowley actually DID have a copy of the transcript to a speech Obama gave in the Rose Garden.

I have no doubt that may be true. However there are always questions that everyone knows will come up. Isn't it extraordinarily odd that the moderator would have a stack of transcripts? I mean I expect her to go out of here way to defend Obama but bringing supporting documents was beyond shocking to me. Especially since it seemed clear that Obama knew she had those documents.

No I am just saying it seemed clear from his body language that he was motioning for her to grab something in front of her instead of using a figure of speech.

========================================

Crowley did not have a copy of the transcript.

How did they know that Romney was going to take exception to the statement that Obama called it an act of terror in the Rose Garden? If Romney hadn't questioned Obama there would have been no reason to reference the transcript. Romney thought he caught Obama in a big lie and doubled down.

Was Obama talking to Romney or Crowley when he said "get the transcript"

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/16/us/politics/transcript-of-...

Crowley was going from memory, not reading the transcript.

WOW. I think this Transcriptgate issue needs to get a lot more exposure. Do you think we can impeach Obama for it?

I'm guessing that Crowley's copy of the transcript was probably handed to her by secret Kenyan Muslims. Has anyone bothered to ask to see Crowley's birth certificate? . . .

The stench of Republican desperation and irrelevance is overwhelming.

I guess that means we can put you in the camp that thinks it is normal for debate moderators to bring a stack of documents supporting positions that may be taken in the debates? Alright.

Maybe she wanted to be prepared to point out that in the Rose Garden speech he said blah blah blah and ask why he's now saying blippty blippty blip? Maybe she wanted proof of what was actually said. That's called being prepared as a moderator. I would have done it. Why not?

Okay fair enough. Maybe we should just scrap the moderator and have opposing fact checkers. That would be more interesting.

You mean you don't remember the conservatives handing out copies of the US Constitution for people to carry at all times--and they claimed THEY always had it with them? Guess Romney is NOT a "true conservative". And that explains why he lost (another "white RINO" sacrificed).

Crowley is a White House correspondent; it is probable she was physically present when Obama spoke and thus didn't need a physical transcript.
