CNN: Crowley gave Obama 9% more time because he speaks more slowly

CNN: Crowley gave Obama 9% more time because he speaks more slowly

By Albert N. Milliron If any of you wondered why Obama got nearly ten percent more time during Tuesdays Town Hall debate, it was because President Obama speaks slower than Romney and needed more time to respond to questions.

No Haymakers in Hofstra

No Haymakers in Hofstra

By Joe Keck Well, Mitt Romney again came out swinging against CNN’s Candy Crowley and Barrack Obama in last night’s heavyweight match-up. You know it’s ironic. One of the guys I was watching the debate with mentioned that Ms. Crowley was doing a fine job as moderator, and I agreed.

It’s how we landed here that’s most interesting. Mitt Romney received a negative bounce out of the GOP convention and his 47% comments further eroded his support. Then came last week’s debate in Denver and the president’s [...]

The program will be replaced at the end of the month by “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” which [...]
