agreed...it’s basically impossible

and I thought our alexa traffic stats were down markedly from the old days

hence why are we so slow

this thread is only a 1200 posters run

back in the day...yes kids..i’m old...we had huge running threads of 1000s and more traffic in general

what gives?

I hope the dem-voting Catholics have their consciences set on fire tonight.

It was good vs evil/Devil vs God/wheat vs tares, plain as day.

My favorite Bidenism of the night: "These are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. Or cripples. Or history."

The above quote is from my recollection and may or may not match the transcript as I was laughing too loud.

Interesting to note all the Leftist propaganda outlet AND ABC News were out with headlines about “Smiling Joe steals the debate” within minutes of the ending. Seems that is the pre programed propaganda line from the Obama Regime tonight.

Seen on another website:

"The Department of Media, another Obama cabinet position"

Well, it pays to be attractive and polite... who’d have guessed?

Biden was giving libs the red meat they didn’t get at the first debate, Hope it cost him moderates.

It seems the Obama campaign is more interested in firing up it’s base than reaching out, not a good sign at this late date.

In my case, I’m sticking with uncle as I always have.

My own personal psycho was “lovable”, loud, grinning, intelligent, funny, verbose and over-talked everybody to get his “punchlines” in.

He was also a serial pedophile.

“Creepy uncle” is hard-wired into my psyche.

If I were a betting soul, I would bet the MSM sees the scales are a’falling from the public’s eye, in regard to the fact they did their best to ignore the murders and chaos in Libya and the rest of the Middle East. Since then, the Obama administration has continued to lie, and to spin.

The Press know their collective tushies are on the line and they are sick and tired of the Democrat lies and distortions.

John was monitoring the system during tonight’s debate. Still has not specifically ID’d the bottleneck.

Here was his response when I asked what was happening:

“Database is nearly completely idle (0.25 load average) and web servers aren’t very busy. I don’t know why its screwed up. It doesn’t make sense. It must be a network problem.”

I saw myself that the load average was not high and that the cpu’s were mostly idle all night. I asked him if it could be a DOS attack or a configuration problem and he said could be. He’d look into it. Said the system was not overloaded and it would be a shame to buy a new database server and not solve the problem.

I’m in favor of swapping out the system a piece at a time until the bottleneck is found, but that’s just me. Don’t know what John’s going to do.

I am a woman and a conservative but it’s interesting that i was cooking so just listening but my husband said, “What the heck is Biden doing? He is laughing and smiling like a crazy person!” It was then that I looked up and saw what he was doing. Frankly, I couldn’t watch. It was just too ugly. Nothing he said impressed me though. It was class envy, class envy and more class envy. Like a broken record, they have nothing new to say. Bleh!

To me, for most of the debate, neither man seemed to “project” as a strong leader, to take over if the Pres’ is down or out. To me that gives Biden the advantage, since he IS already “in”. Biden was more “forceful”, but it came across as arrogant, to me.

I was SO wanting Ryan to smack down Biden on the Embassy Security issue: Yesterday, in the Congressional hearing, Obama’s own Undersecretary clearly stated that security decisions for Libya were NOT constrained by funding (shutting up a couple of the Dems who’d tried to make hay with that funding issue.)

Further (from the hearing), a General Hamm, I believe, offered the Embassy Security officer essentially anything they needed for security, and that assistance was (is) totally independent of State Dept. funding. State turned it down.

I so wanted to have Ryan say to Biden “If our ‘intelligence’ was still telling the Administration that the killings were due to a video, several days after everyone knew what had really happened, then what in God’s name has this administration done to our intelligence agencies?

I could go on, but most here likely had similar thoughts in many areas.

In their closing remarks, however, Ryan clearly made a better presentation than Biden, so hopefully the last impression will be the one people remember. :-)

I highly doubt they’re “sick of the lies” since they repeat and promote them so well.

I’d bet they’re more concerned with their future paychecks...should they manage to have any.

The Press may be feeling a bit pressured, right now.

Our last horse (after 40 years of always having horses on the farm) went to a retirement home last summer ... 3 kids, lots of attention, apples every day, grass up to her knees.

That being said, here’s a synopsis of Biden’s behavior that you missed ... even the horses would find it obnoxious if they could watch TV:

Then it's external. Have you ruled out a Denial Of Service (DOS) attack? Is someone clogging up the traffic before it arrives at your servers?

Whatever it is, it seems to be over. That in itself is a clue that the problem was external, which makes it deliberate.

They know bloody well that Roe v Wade can’t just be suddenly “overturned”.

It would takes years, if not decades, even with an entirely conservative SCOTUS.

I just barely hung on during that debate. Barely could contain myself from throwing my wine glass at the TV.

Biden’s behavior was INFURIATING to me . . . a smirking, condescending JERK. He had NOTHING to defend his record with, so he just did what he usually does and that is to spin long winded strings of one lie after another.

He’s the EPITOME of everything that’s wrong with Washington. Everything — such a lifer/loser political hack if there ever was one.

This debate, and Biden, will always be remembered for how he treated Ryan in this debate ...people will long forget what was actually SAID.

And I 'watched' and agree, also!

I don't believe it was emotion that Ryan was missing though.

I would have liked Ryan to tell Biden what he excepts of him when he's speaking! It was Biden that was missing something - respect for the other person and that includes every American. And we wonder why obamacare was pushed through and then before even reading it?

Arrogance, disrespect - Biden showed what it looks that.
