Does Candy Crowley work for CNN or the Democratic Party?

It was tough to tell Sunday when after the State of the Union host asked guest Rand Paul (R-Ky.) if recent polling indicated the beginning of the end of the Republican Party, she actually asked him if he’d ever consider becoming a Democrat

During her conversation with Paul, Crowley predictably showed a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing Republicans taking the brunt of the blame for the recent government shutdown.

“Do you think, as many have now started talking about, and I grant you a lot of them are Democrats, that there has been irreparable harm done to the Republican Party?” asked Crowley. “People talking about how this is the beginning of the end of the Republican Party as we know it.”

So now this CNN host is even admitting that she’s using Democrat talking points on a Republican guest.

Paul just laughed and said, “I think our demise is a little bit overstated. I would say that both parties are going to catch a lot of blame on this.”

Crowley pressed, “Do you agree that Republicans are taking a lot?”

“Well, I think both are,” responded Paul, “and I think Democrats who think this is a parlor game, who think this is fun, here’s what the Democrats think. They think we'll send a bunch of government workers out there to close off the roadside viewing of Mt.Rushmore because that is funny. I don't think it is funny, and I think that Democrats and Republicans are going to catch blame.”

Then came the money question from Crowley.

“Do you see yourself at any point in the future being anything other than politically a member of the Republican Party?”

Paul once again laughed and said, “You mean, you're implying a third party or some other party?

“Or if you wanted to become a Democrat,” Crowley actually clarified. “There are lots of sort of parties out there. Just wonder if you see yourself being anything other than a Republican?”
Paul once again laughed and responded, “No. I've always been a Republican, and I'm one of those people who actually is a real lover of the history of the Republican Party from the days of abolition through the days of civil rights. Republican Party has a really rich history. In our state, I'm really proud of the fact that the ones who overturned Jim Crowe in Kentucky were Republicans fighting against an entirely unified Democrat Party. So I am proud to be Republican. I can't imagine being anything else.”

Bravo, Senator.

As for Crowley, CNN really needs to consider putting a D next to her name whenever it appears on screen because her behavior lately indicates that at this stage of her career, she’s nothing but a Democratic shill.

CNN needs to label this show "The Democrat Talking Points With Candy Crowley."

"You know, senator, once we succeed in turning this into a one-party country, you'll have to be a Democrat to sit in the politburo.  Won't you please become a Democrat then?  Please?"

I'd like to hear her ask that question to a few of the other republicans.  John McCain comes to mind...

 through the days of civil rights......

Too bad she is probably too danged stupid to understand that part of his sentence... the fact is Eisenhower started the civil rights bill and LBJ killed it in the senate only to resurrect it when he was president and have it passed as HIS legislation.

@SenRandPaul Paul: "I am ok with not raising the debt ceiling." Media: "Paul said he's ok with default." There is your problem.

Crowley:
“People talking about how this is the beginning of the end of the Republican Party as we know it.”

One can only hope.

Clean it out and start fighting.

Almost like the Army of the Potomac, before Lincoln dismissed McClellan...

Romney should have nailed her butt to the floor in the Townhall Debate..  she needed to be taken down a peg or three.

And if you don't convert - liberalism is, after all, just another secular religion - then you'll find yourself in the psychiatric hospital for "political madness".

Beck just observed that in acknowledging the GOP's history, Sen. Paul implied criticism of today's GOP-e.

There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open."

What about Kennedy? LBJ stated at the time he was following through with JFK's intention re. civil rights.

This cow again. What an insulting question but (not eye) Candy was pwned by Rand Paul in the exchange. He was too polite to ask her if she'd ever consider losing two hundred pounds but I sure hope she never gets to "moderate" another debate.

I actually think JFK believed what he was doing re: civil rights.  I could be wrong, after all we only have two years to judge the man, we have a much longer career to judge LBJ and you cannot deny that as leader in the senate he bent over backwards to kill what Eisenhower wanted to do and the bill he eventually passed was almost identical to the Eisenhower plan.
