The Obama-supporting Politico sees this as being a big win for the president.  The moderator (i.e., someone who is there to preside over the debate) in last night's debate shamelessly came to his defense:

President Barack Obama scored a technical knockout on foreign policy Tuesday night, dodging and weaving his way through a tricky question on Libya until debate moderator Candy Crowley declared him the winner.

America sees it as being a good reason to never have a "moderator" sit in on a presidential debate again, if he or she can't keep from taking sides.

The fact that Crowley later tried to worm her way out of the awkward and tactless faux pas she committed only heightens America's disgust with her actions.

* By the way, to translate that "Obama ... dodging and weaving his way through a tricky question on Libya" turn of phrase into plain English, Obama simply didn't answer the question.  Go figure.

See "Another debate, another debacle for America’s media."  They will stop at nothing to get their man reelected.

See "Candy Crowley Jumps from the Bench to Tackle Mitt as he Races for a Touchdown." I'm not sure, but I don't think that's what a moderator is there to do.
