CNN's Candy Crowley is being called all kinds of names, with one Republican strategist saying she was blatantly "wrong" in correcting Mitt Romney's comment during the second presidential debate on Tuesday night. 

"Candy Crowley became a participant in the event - kind of the teacher helping the student, especially the Libya response from the president," Bradley Blakeman told Newsmax. "Candy Crowley was wrong. The president used the term 'terror' generically, not specifically. And if the president is telling us today that he knew when he entered the rose garden that it was an act of terror, then why did he let his subordinates go out and spin the story that it was not?"

The incident during the second debate happened as follows: Romney made the assertion that a day after the Libya attack, President Obama blamed an anti-Muslim video as the underlying reason behind the event rather than calling it an act of terrorism. However, Crowley interjected, in defense of Obama, and said, "He did in fact sir" state that the attack with an act of terror.

But according to Blakeman, "Romney was correct in calling the president out for misleading the American people."

"The president - if you go back and listen to his remarks - he used the remarks 'terror' generically and not specifically to what happened in Benghazi," Blakeman said. "And even on Univision, he said 'we're still investigating.' Well if we're still investigating, then it wasn't an act of terror Mr. President, was it?"

Crowley, who is currently positioned as CNN's chief political correspondent, served as mediator in the second debate. 

Her interjection on Tuesday is receiving much backlash, with Media Matters for America stating that she committed "an act of journalistic terror," is "disgraceful," and acting equivalent to "blowing up her career like a suicide bomber."
