Hey, did you just get an earthquake? Felt the biggest tremor I’ve ever felt on the east coast a few minutes ago. Heard it coming, like thunder, then the whole house shook for 10-15 seconds.

Posting now in case I can’t get onto the live thread.

I’ve been wondering lately if God in His justice has sent a spirit of confusion into the midst of Obama and his people. I could be wrong, but something about the way they keep digging their holes deeper and deeper strikes me. We need to keep praying for the outcome of these next two debates, and the election itself.

Prediction: This debate will be very similar to the first, as both men were themself in round one and any effort to change now will be seen as shallow and fake. Obama may try to throw mud, and if so, it will come across as petty and irrelevant. Romney will be focused, on message, will be declared the 'winner', and will have the knockout line-of-the-night.

MSNBC will then be on death watch.

I set up the thread but I doubt I’ll watch more than a few minutes, either. The thought of listening to barky puts my teeth on edge. I just can’t do it; its like nails on a chalkboard. I was able to stomach about 30 min of the delaware dork before I walked away. I won’t make it 30 min with hussein.

We will know rather quickly if Zero has been given the questions in advance.

If it’s a canned answer without his ugh, ugh, and, and, and. then we’ll know.

Nothing and I mean NOTHING would surprise me with these effing thugs.

Thanks for the links, etc. I’m at the southern end of Big Sebago lake, about 20, 25 miles from the epicenter. Well, that’ll be talk of the town for a day or two. Felt like one of those magic fingers beds. House is on a slab, so my feet were pretty well connected to the motion.

Of course he will have the questions in advance. What's to stop him? The whole debate process is part of the democrat machine. I mean they pick the moderators, the questioners, the questions, and try to steer the answers. I am quite certain that Biden had the questions also.

I understand where you are coming from. I could not stand more than 30 minutes of the first debate. Obama’s voice makes me sick. The Arlington VA Republican committee is having a debate party at a local bar. (Yes Republicans in Arlington, VA.) We saw the VP debate there last week and are going to the debate tonight there. The company should make Obama a bit easier to listen to.
