It's time ...

... to start pushing back:

In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how the moderator of the Tuesday town hall has publicly described her role, TIME has learned.

While an early October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns suggests CNN’s Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday-night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested she will assume a broader set of responsibilities. As Crowley put it last week, “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?’”
I don't know about Mitt Romney, but I can't see Newt  Gingrich letting a moderator get away with violating the rules.

It's time that Republican candidates started calling the media out on their bias; forget that some may see it as a bullying tactic. A skilled debater could certainly work in a comment about how he's glad to be here and he hopes the moderator abides by the rules that both candidates agreed to for the debate. that right there would put the moderator on the defensive, because, having been called out at the beginning a candidate could simply start with "Well, Candy ... there you go again.".

Go big, SMitt ... or get sent home. h/t Ace's Top Headline Commentws
