I missed this order-of-happening in last night’s Hofstra debate, but Rush Limbaugh caught it. When Romney challenged Obama on how long it took Obama and his government officials to call Benghazi a terrorist attack, Obama, perched on his seat at the back of the stage, called out to Crowley, “Candy, check the transcript,” [paraphrased] and she did.
She just happened to have the transcript right at her finger tips (but she didn’t have Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s devastating quote on the administration’s lack of interest in rising energy prices). Obama called for the transcript and then Crowley flourished it. How ridiculous would it have been for Obama to tell her to check the transcript, if she didn’t have it? Crowley was advised by the Obama team.
