Is CNN defending Obama getting more time during the debate on Tuesday night because he speaks slowly? Probably because all the dumb rubes wouldn’t be able to understand all his nuance-y nuance otherwise, right, CNN?
CNN internal memo explaining why Obama got more speaking time- “Obama speaks slower”.

A memo about it, even!
CNN: Candy Crowley gave Obama more time during the debate because he talks slower or something dailycaller.com/2012/10/18/cnn…

More from The Daily Caller, on a CNN memo reportedly obtained by TMZ. Yes, TMZ. How sad that they are doing the job that “real journalists” don’t want to do.
And then the best part. Whitaker actually wrote down these words and sent them to people who work for him:
“On why Obama got more time to speak, it should be noted that Candy and her commission producers tried to keep it even but that Obama went on longer largely because he speaks more slowly. We’re going to do a word count to see whether, as in Denver, Romney actually got more words in even if he talked for a shorter period of time.”
A word count. Seriously
So Obama had more time to speak because he talks slower than Romney. Now I understand

Hey, does Joe Biden speak slower as well?

We know he doesn’t speak well, but slow? Sorry, lapdogs, can’t use that pitiful excuse there, either.
