Win the Debate Point, Lose the Ad Buy

The Libya question did not come across well for Mitt Romney in the debate Tuesday, particularly after moderator Candy Crowley jumped in. Now she's starring with President Obama in a Republican attack ad.

The Obama administration still doesn't have an answer that puts this issue behind them, and the last debate next week is on foreign policy, so it will be sure to come up again.

Notice that President Obama never actually acknowledges in the debate that he called the Libya deaths an "act of terror" in the Rose Garden on the day after. "Please proceed, Governor" was his actual response. But it came across as just such an acknowledgment after Candy Crowley jumped in to "help" the President.
