Here we go. Leftists are ruining another word that has well established meaning.
"Hate" is now akin to "racist": a hollow word thrown around by small minded people when their vocabulary isn't up to the job.

A candidate should welcome the chance to convince ppl of opposing views, even if they only affect a couple percent. A few percent is what swings elections in recent history.

All MSM is guilty of it on their websites but Fox takes the crown for this. You disagree because Fox is pro-right and it's a Democratic Presidential candidate saying it.
The truth about what Candy Crowley said.
However, the transcripts of the debate and also the president's Rose Garden address, as well as subsequent comments, show that, in fact, Crowley was correct.
ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.
OBAMA: Get the transcript.
CROWLEY: It -- it -- it -- he did in fact, sir. So let me -- let me call it an act of terror...
OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?
CROWLEY: He -- he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take -- it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.
But, as to the original accusation from the conservative critics that Obama never mentioned "acts of terror" until weeks after the attack, they were wrong. Crowley was right.
"I did turn around and say, but you’re totally correct that they spent two weeks telling us this was about a tape and that that there was this riot outside the Benghazi consulate which there wasn’t. He (Romney) was right in the main, I just think he picked the wrong word.”
“It was one of those moments, and I could even feel that here, you know, when you say something you’re not expecting,” Crowley insisted, admitting she simply couldn’t help herself from unprofessionally inserting herself into a heated dispute between presidential candidates.
“He was right in the main, I just think he picked the wrong word,” Crowley said
