    Something has been bothering me since Tuesday night’s debate with your CNN employee. It looks to me and any person who watched this that Mr. Romney was set up by her and the Obama camp. I have listened to Obama speech in the garden on Oct. 12 several times and it is quite clear that he was taking about N.Y. Trade Center attack and the brave men and woman that died on that day.
    She had no right as the moderator of the debate to intrepid what was said, especially when she was totally wrong. How did she just happen to have the transcript of the speech, when Obama tells him to read the transcript and she agrees with him, just a bit strange if you ask me?
    CNN then gives her time to support her possession on this matter, with no one to argue the statement she made. So much for true journalism, she should debate this with someone who knows what they are talking about.
