The debate&#39;s moderator, <strong>Candy Crowley</strong>, fact-checked Romney in real time and affirmed that the president had indeed referred to the Benghazi attack as an act of terror. The full exchange is below:</p> <div style="text-align:center"> <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" height="362" id="FiveminPlayer" width="500"><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://embed.5min.com/517509479/" /><param name="wmode" value="opaque" /><embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="362" name="FiveminPlayer" quality="high" src="http://embed.5min.com/517509479/" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="500" wmode="opaque"></embed></object></div> <p>Immediately, Romney supporters made multiple charges: that this fact check was false, that Obama did NOT in fact call the Benghazi attack an act of terror, that Crowley was interferring int he debate. Even <strong>Birther Tim</strong>, Speker of the Missouri House, <a href="http://www.firedupmissouri.com/content/orly-taitz-congratulates-rep-tim-jones-his-new-leadership-position">denier of President Obama&#39;s birth certificate</a>, got in on the action, claiming that Crowley was &quot;in the tank&quot; for the president and that Obama had not called the attack an act of terror:</p> <!--break--><!--break--><p class="rtecenter"><span id="cke_bm_312S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_313S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_314S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_315S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_316S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_317S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_318S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_312S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_313S" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><img alt="" class="noside" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8331/8097036837_80b18d66d4.jpg" style="text-align: center; width: 400px; height: 283px; " /><span id="cke_bm_313E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_312E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_318E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_317E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_316E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_315E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_314E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_313E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span><span id="cke_bm_312E" style="display: none; ">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="">But you see, here&#39;s the problem, <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/12/remarks-president-deaths-us-embassy-staff-libya">the transcript from&nbsp;</a><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/12/remarks-president-deaths-us-embassy-staff-libya">President Obama&#39;s remarks in the Rose Garden</a>&nbsp;the day after tragedy struck that Mitt Romney and his lackeys take issue with clearly show that the president referred to the attacks on our consulate as an act of terror:</p> <blockquote><p style="">No acts of <u><em><strong>terror</strong></em></u> will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.
