Candy Crowley Calls Mitt Romney ‘President Romney’ [Video]

Candy Crowley slips, calls Romney 'President Romney'

CNN’s chief political correspondent Candy Crowley was criticized by conservatives during the second presidential debate when she fact checked Mitt Romney on Libya.

Now, they may think she has come over to their side.

On Sunday’s State of the Union, Crowley asked Ohio Senator Rob Portman, a Republican, what made him think Romney could win over voters in his state. She said:

“You have in Ohio a jobless rate that is better than the nationwide jobless rate, and you have an auto bailout that the President put in place that’s highly popular. What is it in this state that makes you think that President Romney, uh, sorry, Governor Romney can overcome those particular statistics and the feel of the voters?”

Portman — who played Obama during Romney’s mock debates — quickly responded, “I like your Freudian slip on President Romney. That sounded good.”

The two laughed and then continued their conversation.

The right was quick to criticize Crowley when she told Romney that President Obama did in fact call the attacks in Libya an “act of terror.” Crowley did say Romney was “correct” when he said it took Obama weeks “for the whole idea of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out.”

When asked if that meant she had backtracked on her comments during the debate, she said no.

Early voting results show that President Obama has a slight lead over his opponent, so Crowley’s Freudian slip may be the closest Romney gets to being called “president.”

    'Early voting results show that President Obama has a slight lead over his opponent, so Crowley’s Freudian slip may be the closest Romney gets to being called “president.”.

    It's widely known that many Democrats vote early, often due to "get out the vote" enticements. What matters are the results on November 6th. No matter what party affiliation, everyone should do their best to vote…

    Candy Crowley is clueless. She is a big, fat wannabee. It's time she started addressing our new President as President Romney.

    "when she fact checked Mitt Romney on Libya"……she did not fact check Mitt Romney; she demonstrated her left wing bias by repeating a discredited Democrat talking point. Pathetic mass media.

    All of these scumbag "so called jopurnalists" are for obama. They will cover up anything bad they might find to help his re-election.

    Are you kidding me? Liberal journalism is 'so-called'? Then what would you call Fox and Friends? or O'Reily Factor? Or Limbaugh? You don't know what you're talking about.

    I like to think that conservatives are above the tactics and behaviors of Liberals.

    Not to mention that a gallup poll has shown Fox news to be the most unbiased news provider. Intolerant liberals, such as Vinnie above, just can't stand it when any other opinion other than their own is voiced.

    Freudian slip or hopeful prediction? She is a Dumbocrat of course. Sounds like Crappy News Network needs to fire her for that mistake or prediction (whichever you prefer).

  24. Rick Crowley

    The Redskins lost yesterday. This may be another prediction that Obummer loses Tuesday or at least lose the popular vote. That would be irony, huh dumbocrats. You didn't think the last president should win that way and tried to cheat him out of the election. Now you may get one the same way. Maybe Republicans will say that power outages caused their defeat. At least that would be a better excuse than "missing or unpunched chads" being the excuse for the defeat.

    Unfortunately, her time has come and gone. On her "Stae of the Union" show she refuses to ask the hard questions, usually looks dishevelled, and a bit unorganized. Time for a replacement.

  26. Kimberly C. Wade

    Candy looks like she pushes all the food together on her plate, so why wouldn't she overstep her bounds as a moderator? Obama likes the sound of himself as Leader of the Free World but has fallen far short- he even admitted during that debate Mitt's' was bigger than his", (Mitts' portfolio, that is…) ROMNEY /RYAN 2012!

  27. Dave Lenckus

    Actually, it's pretty easy to discern who has the lead. While secretaries of state do not provide early-vote totals, they do release figures on the party affiliation of early voters. You can bet that nearly all early-voting Democrats cast the ballots for President Obama and almost all early-voting Republicans penciled in Romney.

  28. Lorenzo Toia

    Look, this is the closest I'll get to as inappropriate as the conservative voters I witness: If you vote Romney, you better believe that you are tearing the right of the majority right out of their hands. Combine that with the fact that no credible info has been spewed by neither Romney nor Fox, and you've got yourself an easy decision.

  29. Larry Joseph

    Its makes me laugh that a journalism tells the truth based on facts and gets bashed. Unlike the Republican party that is always flip flopping the truth or stretching it one way or the other.

  30. Lorenzo Toia

    Naomi, you're wrong. Look at all the former Tea Party office holders scolding their own RECENT decisions in a sad attempt to get re-elected. Democrats stick together, they don't start extreme groups geared toward selfishness, with no interest in our country's integrity.

    Why can't you people accept the fact that Obama is going to win and win with over 300 Electorial votes. Romney has two to three views on every subject. It's going to be very quiet tomorrow night on the web for conservatives since the election will be called for Obama quite early in the evening. I can't wait to hear the excuses.

    Candy (She eats her share.) Crowley, is definitely full of herself! What a disappointment she must be to someone. Those types usually are. Probably, herself, if the truth be known. CNN's Chief Political Correspondent : She must be making somebody at CNN feel good and they must be easily impressed. Holy, crap!

  35. Marc Fischer

    You must to delusional if you think Romney is going to win. Wishful thinking? Obama will win with over 300 electorial votes. Get use to four more years of Obama! I am thrilled with Obama care, a women's right to choose and marriage equality. Get use to!!! Haha

    Candy Crowley is a hack! She never challenges anyone, especially Republicans, when they flat out lie during an interview. She just continues on which lets low information types to think those lies are facts!

  37. Marc Fischer

    You are a clown. Obama is way ahead in the electorial votes and will win without much of a struggle. Be on line tomorrow night and take Romney's defeat with a bit of class. I can't wait to hear all the excuses and how the democrats stole the election. It is not going to be as close as everyone thinks. Obama will win the popular vote by a small margin but the electorial vote by over 50 electorial votes.

  38. Marc Fischer

    Fox news is a joke and I doubt Candy Crowley gives a darn what you think. She has a contract with CNN and makes well over a million dollars a year. I am sure that is a bit more then you will make in your lifetime. Yes Mitt can buy it but then he will ship all the jobs overseas, strip the company of his resources and then sell it for a profit. He is a pig!

    Even this article is biased. " Early voting gives Obama a slight edge so Crowley's Freudian slip may be the closest Romney ever gets to being called president." Surely this journalist must know that early voting for Obama is way down from 2008 and way up for republicans despite the slight advantage to Obama. Surely this journalist must know that early voting always favors the Democratic candidate, even when the Republican wins. Look at the early voting in Ohio for instance. Obama holds the edge over Romney in early voting. However, fewer people cast an early vote for Obama in Ohio then in 2008 and more people cast an early ballot for the republican candidate. The net difference of these early votes in this election in Ohio is greater the the number of votes Obama won by in 2008. Thus, Republicans have completely erased Obama's margin of victory in 2008 with early voting despite Democrats having the advantage in actual early votes.

  41. Marc Fischer

    Rick: Obama will win the popular vote by a slim amount and the electorial vote by a large margin. Republicans will be making all sort of excuses tomorrow night. I can't wait to hear them.

Romney is a lying fool and Ryan is a neo nazi. You are lucky the President is going to be re elected. Obama is admired all over the world. Romney is a joke to the world and is a joke to any intelligent American.

  46. Marc Fischer

    Nope. Obama will win handily tomorrow. It's not as close as most of the polls state. Obama will get over 300 electorial votes. I guarantee when Romney loses, he will amend his taxes to reduce his tax burden. The man is a liar and a cheat. His political life will be over for good tomorrow.

In Spite of all the claims of liberal bias I've noticed how rare it is for a reporter to say President Obama where as they often called Bush President Bush. I think the deep seated racism is deeper and wider spread than anyone realizes. The general disrespect President Obama is shown is disgusting.

    Any way you slice it Candy Crowley is an idiot! As a moderator in the debate it was not her job to correct or speak out. She should have kept her mouth shut and allowed Romney to rebutt. She was obviously biased in the president's favour and threw that entire exchange out of balance. I wish her nothing but trial and tribulations for sullying the image of Presidential debate moderators and displaying a very bad example for women professionals every where.

I love this country as much as you do, served my country in Vietnam, and am very proud of the way the President represents us abroad. He isn't a moron like George Bush. I am proud that the war in Iraq is over. And my busness has thrived since Obama took office as did my 401K since the stock market is up over 70% from the day he took office. Get your facts together and stop watching Fox news. Obama will win tomorrow and we will witness an improved economy.

    There is a lot to be said for 'Freudian slips'; subconsciously Mitt came across as the most informed, most composed, and most natural leader in the auditorium. In her eyes, and the eyes of others, Mitt is the man who has emerged as the one to follow.

  56. Lori Chillemi

    That's good she finally recognizes Presidential material when she sees it. Now she just needs to clarify the statement about the auto bailout in Ohio. Specifically that the lower unemployment rate in Ohio is a direct result of the hard work the Governor and his team implemented with their monthly round tables with small businesses all across the state. Of 112,000 jobs added in Ohio, only 400 can be attributed to the auto industry. Even Ohioans need to be made aware of that fact. This is not an Obama success-this is hard work at the state level-give credit where credit is due.

Fox sued the FCC for the right to lie, seriously, the right to make up "news" and feed it to your ever so eager pie hole, and they won. So yeah, unbiased if you mean they don't discriminate on how much they lie to your face…

    You lying bastards. Crowley didn't "fact check" Romney, she gave the debate losing Obama an assist AND SHE WAS WRONG. YOU DON'T "FACT CHECK" SOMEONE BY SPINNING AND LYING, IT TAKES REAL FACTS TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT. The fact is Romney was right and Obama was lying and Crowley supported his lie about the administration's claim that the Benghazi atrocity was just a protest that got out of hand and esclated into a murdering rampage. When Obama mentioned "terrorism" the day following the attack he was speaking about terrorism in general, not terrorism specifically related to the killing of Ambassador Stevens and our 3 other heros who were murdered at Benghazi. In context it is clear Obama was not calling the Benghazi attack an act of deliberate terrorism, and he and his lying minions kept repeating their lies for the following 2 weeks about how some stupid video sparked the attack when that was a bald faced lie. He even spent 70 thousand dollars on an ad apologizing muslims for the stupid video that had nothing to do with the attack. If Crowley and our corrupt media had been around at the time of Watergate and had done for Nixon what they have done for Obama, Nixon would have never been impeached. The days of a free press in America are over and the dumbing down of America continues with articles like this one being foisted off on an apathetic and ignorant public that doesn't know they're being lied to. At least today we have the chance to take a little bit of America back… hopefuly it will happen. We the people will talk back to the liars today at the polls…. We'll be the ones to send the message to our corrupt media and politicians that we don't trust them at all anymore and we are the ones doing the fact checking on them. We don't need liars "fact checking" for us anymore.

    The CBS video clip, just released yesterday, extracted from a 60 Minutes piece, proves that the President wasn't being honest when he said he called it terrorism in the Rose Garden speech. He was referring back to the 9/11/01 terrorist attack. I think CBS is just trying to cover their backside, because there WILL be an investigation and the truth will come out. The administration could have provided security and didn't; could have done more to stave off the second wave of the attack and didn't. If he does win, the media is culpable….lets see how long it takes for them to realize it and turn on Him (note the cap H, he is their God).

    If Obama loses? it would be as special as the Browns winning 5 superbowls in a row?

    Marc Fisher I was pregnant when George W. Bush was President. I could have had an abortion if I wanted to but didn't. A friend did have an abortion when either Reagan or George H.W. Bush was President. Women will still be able to have abortions no matter who wins. I hate that Obama supporters like to scare women like that.

    Ms. Crowley again proves that she is a witless stooge! However, she is in good company at CNN (Clown News Network). As Lyle has correctly pointed out, the "so called journalists" of the mainstream news media are in the tank for Obama. No news reporting on Benghazi, no reporting on the deficit, no reporting on the fact that he has not kept the promises he mad in 2008. Crowley talks about the improved economy and improved jobs; yes last month we saw minimal, insignificant improvement. And of course, Ms. Crowley did not point out that most of the increase in jobs is due to seasonal employment for the Christmas holidays which will disappear on Dec. 26th.
    Crowley is like the 200 Lb. woman who goes on a diet and balloons to 280 Lbs. and then one week drops to 279 Lbs. and boasts that her diet is working.

    Craig, why are you worrying about what rednecks do? Putting people down because of their economic status says a lot about you and what kind of people support your fool of a president

    @Marc, I don't know about Brian, but you have me pegged. I am bitter, a republican, and White. Although I am not sure what race has to do with any of this. Fact Obama has NO business experience, unless he plays monopoly, and I am sure he sucks at that base on the dept he is directly responsible for in His 4 years as president. The fact is, he stated that his administration would be transparent about their objectives for the USA and he has been anything but transparent. He is a liar, he is evil, and he wants the foundation of this country to crumble while blaming someone else. The saddest part about all of this is people like you believe it because you are too blinded or lazy, you pick, to understand the truth. Period!!!

    Marc Fischer Why would I accept a lie? Now, if you did what Ms. Crowley did and substitute the word "Romney" in place of "Obama", it might have more credibility.
    I do enjoy these back and forths, but we'll know later today, won't we.
    Then all the guessing will be over, and President Romney can start to get to work.
    Be nice to finally have a President who works like one instead of going on Talk shows, don't you think?
    Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot….
    You don't, do you.

    After reading the comments on this board, it is obvious to me that we should be emphasizing education considerably more in this country. With comments including the terms "jopunalists","foerces", and let us not forget the person standing up for themself and declaring that they are not a "scunbag", it is incredible to believe that these are the individuals who will be deciding the next leader of the free world. Anyone else out there think we should have a constitutional ammendment obligating voters to prove that they are at of least average intelligence, and sober?

    Marc Fischer They can not accept facts because they watch Faux News. Dick Norris has told them that Romney wins with over 300 electoral votes. If it proves to be false, they will some how have been cheated.

    Crowley is a scumbag. The "conspiracy" with Obummer at the second debate was a disgrace. It literally made me sick. Let's hope karma takes care of trash like Crowley, Obama, Axelrod, Pelosi, Reid, Wasserman Schultz, Gates, et al.

    Yes let's throw out all Democrats! Because if history has taught us one valuable lesson it is that giving one group of people all the power is ALWAYS A GOOD THING.

    Seeing how votes can't be counted until later tonight…maybe its a bad idea to state who does and does not have a lead…that's like trying to predict the first snow for NEXT winter…what if we just stuck to what we can say and what we know for sure…those things are called facts…and when you report those its called journalism…

    @Lloyd Brooks—- no facts KNOW FACTS but that all sounded polyannish in a unicorn dimension, instead you just spewed all BS from Fux & friends <get on back to your beer and belly scratchin'>

    HMMM Early voting results huh? Well no one is allowed to see any of the ballots until they are counted tonight. So…if CNN has seen the ballots…that means they have committed voter fraud…what they actually did was ask voters coming out of the polls who they voted for…which is unethical and rude…and I believe that it is illegal…but I am not sure….

    you know Bill Gates gave a billion dollars to India to better educate their children, but as far as I know not a dime tohelp any of our military who are struggling all the time.Oh, that's right, he's a liberal.I forgot.

    Marc Fischer I love that – "Romney has two to three views on every subject" – you are SO correct! Personally, I am FASCINATED that any Republican would vote for him when they don't even know what he stands for!

    Well…she called Romney, President Romney, so I don't think she is on the side of the liberals.

    You are quite the angry little man aren't you? Didn't you get chosen in gym class to be on any of the teams that you are such a vile human being? You don't know anything about me or my family to make asinine assumptions. For that matter- I'm glad we had what you refer to as the "WRFCC" or we would have been 36 trillion in debt instead of 16. I don't speak for foot in mouth politicians or endorse them any more than you do Joe Biden I'm sure, so your God-rape endorsing hubby and brainwashed kids remark is a pathetic comment to make coming from someone who purports to be educated.
