Sure, Mitt Romney was out-matched, disjointed, and obviously agitated throughout the night, but Michelle Obama clapped for her husband of 20 years at one point in the debate! Gasp! Drudge siren!
Conservative media outlets including The Weekly Standard, The Daily Caller, The Blaze, Breitbart.com, and the Drudge Report have claimed that Michelle Obama broke the rules by joining audience applause at one point during the debate. Fox Radio’s Todd Starnes went so far as to call Michelle Obama unbecoming. These attacks come despite the fact that Mitt Romney repeatedly violated the debate rules. [...]
Prior to the debate, the campaigns agreed to a rule stating that “the candidates may not ask each other direct questions during any of the four debates.”
Nevertheless, Romney repeatedly asked Obama questions during the debate on a variety of subjects including oil drilling, the investments in Obama’s pension, and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
This is really pathetic.
Would Democrats be complaining today if one of the Romneys clapped during the debate? I highly doubt so.
And why didn’t any of them clap? Maybe because they were too busy clinching their asses. Or in the case of Josh Romney, entertaining homicidal thoughts.
I rest my case.
