Today's column for the Daily Banter takes a look at what could very well be the cause of Mitt Romney's screw-up on Libya during last week's debate.
If this really is the case, it's definitely cause for concern and the best example yet of how media outlets that cater only to conservative biases are poisoning our politics.
Here's the opening shot:
"Last week on the Bob & Chez Show podcast that I do with him, Bob Cesca brought up a fantastic point about the second presidential debate that I have to admit I’m ashamed I hadn’t considered myself. It had to do with Mitt Romney’s epic blunder on Libya, wherein he tried to call Barack Obama out for supposedly lying about how long it took to label the deadly attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi an act of terror. Romney really thought Obama had walked into a bear trap by bringing the whole thing up, since as far as Romney was concerned it took 14 days for the president to call the attack terrorism, but in short order he found that it was he himself who’d carelessly stumbled into the trap, since his attempted 'gotcha' moment was debunked on the spot by debate moderator Candy Crowley; the truth was that Obama had called the incident an 'act of terror' almost immediately after it happened.
The question is, why was Romney so sure he was right? Why was he 100% confident that Obama hadn’t, in fact, mentioned terrorism following the Libya attack until two weeks after the fact?"
