30 minutes to get back into this thread. FR. Is utterly useless when it counts the most. I am frustrated because I do donate a lot here and these events are important to me to share with you all.

The last two FReepathons included higher donation goals to upgrade FR's servers before the debates and elections. Guess there is still work to be done in this area. (Speaking as a dollar-a-day contributor)

Don’t be fooled people...Romney is every bit the accomplished liar OButt is...more so tonight.

Just telling the lies you want to hear.

And with a air of suave upper crust European aristocracy.

Appealing physically to certain post-menopausal women reminiscing for what never was.

Don’t . He deserves what he gets..

Unfortunately, he won't get what he really deserves! Feeling sorry for a POS who hates America is over the line, IMO.

But Obama kept looking out into the audience, therefore he was getting couching from someone in the audience.

Romney looked directly into the camera in his finishing statements. Obama did not look into the camera. He looked away toward Lehrer.

Buh bye Obama. Heh.

“He looks like he is asking for Lehrer to step in and stop the debate.”

After Romney hit obama with a jab about solendra and campaign donors he visibly winced. Can’t wait to see the replay of that!

Rachel Maddow on MSNBC - "I honestly don't know who won this debate."

This means it was a slam dunk for Mitt.

> 30 minutes to get back into this thread. FR. Is utterly useless when it counts the most. I am frustrated because I do donate a lot here and these events are important to me to share with you all.

I've been on this thread too, all the way from a lone hillside in rural upstate New York, on backwoods DSL, and I haven't had delays more than perhaps a minute, usually more like 20-30 seconds, and often less. Under these circumstances, quite acceptable.

It's always easy to blame "the website server" at the other end. But it could be any number of other factors in between, that caused the trouble you experienced.

MOST TELLING MOMENT!!

Obammer and Moochelle LEFT THE STAGE FIRST!! Just the TWO of them scampered off stage left behind the Romney Squad!!

CNN on Mitt Romney: he "held his own" (lol)

MSNBC: the panelists are disappointed in Obama.

Don’t misread what I said. Romney beat Obama viciously and I liked that. Short of Romney falling of the stage and breaking his neck, he gets my vote. Even if he did break his neck Obama would not get my vote.

And they are both still socialists, one fast and one slow.
