It’s frustrating to have a “Live” thread inaccessible until the following day, which was my experience.

If my diagnosis is correct, then yes, this was THE problem.

Out of adversity... triumph! Good work John. Thank you for all you do.

"Is it just me, or is his face orange?"

When the camera zoomed out just a bit to show more flag behind him, he looked like he was jaundiced and heavily made up in an attempt to cover it. I didn't watch the "campaign spew session" (aka: SoTU), just saw a few of the following rehash clips. His weight and pallor makes him look ill.

The Republicans were foolish to go along with the “bipartisan” seating nonsense. They needed to show America that the new House majority they elected was united and committed to opposing the spending madness of the President and Democrat-controlled Senate. And they needed to have the public clearly see the Democrat seals clapping like fools while Obama spouted about more spending. The GOP will never learn and Boehner is showing all signs of becoming a typical GOP “compromiser” (i.e. capitulator).

I knew FR would be moribund, it usually is when there’s a live thread on an event of some significance. So I opted to avoid the echo chamber where functionality is inversely proportional to the participation.
And instead I watched a WW2 flick on youtube.
Guess what? It was the slowest load ever. I can still see the whirling dots that came on every 90 seconds.
Just goes to show, you cannot escape destiny.

This is Rush Limbaugh’s take on the GOP getting duped into the seating deception:

“Look, folks, this is not a good sign. It isn’t fatal, don’t misunderstand here, but it’s an illustration of what one incident — (unintelligible) — hell, I don’t know. Things can happen overnight in politics and totally upset and change the game, i.e., Tucson. A totally, by the way, nonpolitical event that has been converted into a political event that somehow the Republicans need to go out of their way and say, “Hey, hey, hey, wasn’t us, and to prove it we’ll sit next to you guys in the State of the Union and we’ll go along with this Obama moving to the center stuff.” But what’s the symbolism of sitting together? All it is is a trick that’s been dreamed up by the Democrats to make sure that the vast Republican majority is not seen during the relative standing ovations or lack thereof. So the optics will not show this massive Republican majority in the House of Representatives. So what is it symbolic of? Well, it’s symbolic of the GOP playing along, symbolic of the Republicans not wanting to show distinctions, not wanting to draw on the differences.”

Thanks for the ping; post. I didn’t watch, listen to, or read anything about the POSOTUS and his SOTU but I know this thread is a good one...so I am bumping it.

OK, all,

What I want to know is...did everyone enjoy the whack-a-mole pop-up speech?

Oh, and don’t we all enjoy DOJ’s Blogsquad DOS attacks? Come one now. These attacks are important in the expression of noblesse oblige free speech, no?

As my computer slows during a live thread, I, also, notice the time between posts increases. When there are two to three minutes between posts, I know it ain’t good.

My son: “Who’s that sad looking guy on Obama’s left?”
Me: “That’s Johm Boehner. He looks like that crying indian(from the 70’s ads about littering), doesn’t he?”
He looks like he has a bad taste in his mouth and can’t believe all the crap he’s hearing.


I thought the best part of the SOTU was watching Boehner's reactions. He gave a few obligatory claps for things no one can disagree with (our brave military, America's exceptionalism, etc.). He looked disgusted, but resolved, for most of the rest of the SOTU. Unlike many of the establishment Republicans that clapped for anything/everything, Boehner appeared he was actally listening to the CONTENT of o's speech.

I know it’s not really funny, but while border security was being discussed, the camera lingered on John McCain and he looked very uncomfortable. Kind of like each word was a little slap to his face. We almost fell out of our chairs howling with laughter at his reaction. He looked like he’d do anything to make that camera go away.

Yes, Pelosi incoherent at times trying to remember her talking points. Almost sad to watch. I looked around the crowd last night. . . there are the smiling career politicians and a few young bucks. Time for Term Limits!

Agree with Rush. We have many more RINOS in Congress than conservatives, and last night proved it.

After FR crashed, I sat in my recliner and promptly dozed off as Obooboo started droning.

Guess I didn’t miss much.

Can you help me out?

Ever since FreeRepublic crashed the early part of January I have not been able to access my FreepMails nor my Preferences. Sometimes I couldn't even get my postings.

Is there some setting in my computer I need to find in order to be able to read my FreepMail and set my Preferences or is there something FreeRepublic needs to reset for me?

I would appreciate all the help I can get........Thank You
