Candy Crowley says she's not backtracking on her (mistaken) confirmation of the president's Rose Garden statements, but at the same time she offers clarification that sounds like she's backing off.

I was trying to move this along... there is no question that the administration is quite vulnerable on this topic... that took a long time, and then we got hung up on this... what I wanted to do was move this along...

George Will says this was the best debate ever!

A key area of dispute in Tuesday's debate was whether the president called the Benghazi attack an act of terror in a Rose Garden speech the day after the September 11th killing of four Americans. Candy Crowley sided with Obama's claim that he did call it an act of terror, throwing Mitt off stride, but the president didn't, specifically, call the event an act of terror.

The president did use the word terror during his remarks, but didn't specifically call Benghazi an act of terror.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.

Here are the president's Rose Garden remarks. The key portion happens at about 1:15.

Mitt confronts the president on energy policy and the two bicker. Romney's aggressive posture may have made him lose the debate by a few points, but it made it impossible for Obama to get the turnaround he sought.

Karl Rove's assessment of Debate II: Advantage Obama, but not what the president needed to change the course of the election.

George Will wonders whether the Romney lead will be evanescent. Which depends on what the meaning of inchoate is.

If it is durable, it will be because I think usually what happens in debates that matter is they catalyze an inchoate feeling the electorate had and that and that it becomes articulate and present and powerful. 

Inchoate means 'Just begun and so not fully formed or developed.' Evanescent means 'Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.'

Battery maker A123 declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy Tuesday, announcing it would sell off it's assets.

A123 received more than $250 million in state and federal funding to help it run its operations providing batteries for electric cars and other products. But it has also faced many problems, including defective products.

A123 today said Johnson Controls (JSI) will help finance the filing by buying A123's automotive business assets for $125 million. As part of the transaction, A123 will receive $72.5 million from Johnson Controls to continue operating during the process.

A123 is not the first government-funded alternative energy company to file for bankruptcy. Ener1, another battery company, filed for Chapter 11 in January. At that time, it cited slower demand for its products due to lower-than-expcted adoption of electric vehicles. And energy-storage company Beacon Power and solar power manufacturer Solyndra filed for bankruptcy last year.

Was Joe Biden a college football player? He seems to thinks so, but that's apparently not what the record shows.

Truth is Biden never played for University of Deleware football. All them Biden college football stories were just Biden folklore made up by Biden.
