Michelle Obama Claps For Romney

Michelle Obama Claps For Romney

When Tuesday’s debate moderator Candy Crowley interjected and said that President Barack Obama did in fact call the attack on Libya an “act of terror,” applause erupted. She then said it took two weeks for everything to get sorted out and Mitt Romney was correct about that. Michelle Obama clapped.

That’s like clapping when the team you’re rooting against scores. To add insult to injury, it was against the rules to applaud during the debate. A tip for Michelle: If you’re going to break the rules, at least support your hubby.

Both campaigns agreed that there would be no applause during the debate. Article 9, Section A, Subsection 7 of the memorandum of understanding states:

All members of the debate audience will be instructed by the moderator before the debate goes on the air and by the moderator after the debate goes on the air not to applaud, speak, or otherwise participate in the debate by any means other than by silent observation, except as provided by the agreed upon rules of the October 16 town hall debate.

In the video below, when Crowley shows her bias and interrupts Romney there is applause from multiple members of the audience. That’s understandable behavior from those on the left. I realize that liberals have trouble following instructions. But then Crowley goes on to, in a roundabout way, support Romney’s statement that it took a while for the administration to call the Libya attack a terrorist attack. “You’re correct about that,” Crowley adds. After affirming Romney’s statement, somebody in the audience starts clapping loudly. When the camera pans back, it’s none other than the first lady.
