Crowley Crushes Romney On Libya

Moderator Candy Crowley spent all evening trying to avoid getting ‘Lehrer-ed,’ but her shining moment came when she shut down Romney on Libya. When the GOP candidate claimed Obama didn’t initially call the attack on the American consulate in Libya ‘an act of terror,’ Crowley corrected him. ‘He did in fact, sir,’ she said. ‘Can you say that a little louder?’ added Obama. UPDATE: while the president did, indeed, refer to 'acts of terror' in the aftermath of the attacks, some are disputing Crowley's characterization of his response.
