Town Hall debate.

The debate can also be watched at these links:
Places to watch the debate:
Well I likely won’t be adding to the bandwidth later tonight, I’m sitting by a pool in Maui (it’s just 2PM here) and around the time of the debate, my wife and I will be showering off and heading to a luau where I will imbibe large quantities of rum-based drink and pulled pork. I hope to come back later tonight to hear that once again Romney kicked Obama’s butt - good luck Romney and good luck Free Republic live thread!
but.......don’t hold your breath, doesn’t look like it will happen in our lifetime!
I’ve just modified the drinking game rules.
No longer drink when the servers don’t respond.
Drink when FReepers complain that the servers don’t respond.
See, the glass is not only too big, it’s irrelevant.
The real question becomes: how big is the bottle?
Amen and Amen.
***Which one will appear at tonight’s debate?***
One is cardboard, the other plastic, so who knows...
The loathing engendered by learning of the maggøt back in '07 has matured to a well-rounded, full-bodied hatred.
I guarantee Obama will be on the LEFT this time.
You are so lucky!
Obama to announce that he'll abandon his "leading from behind" foreign policy strategy in favor of his new strategy of "trailing from ahead"
Firemen in Chicago in 1871 were not carrying as much water as the media is for Obama
Before the thread crashes, I’m eating chocolate covered graham crackers (cookies) and drinking Bailey’s Irish Creme. Don’t ask about my sugar level, I don’t care.
Are you guys being good and eating/drinking right, through this battle?
“Cant watch it! Bamas voice pegs my blood pressure, and trips a mental circuit breaker. Will count on reports here.”
I’ll try but I don’t expect to make it 20 min.
“You can pretty much guarantee that the people in the audience are liberal plants..you can tell right away by the questions they ask.”
Back in my banking days, at our annual stockholders meeting they used HR staff as plants to ask the CEO scripted questions. Unfortunately for him the plant asked the question backwards which totally threw him off. Hilarity ensued, at least for us! Let’s hope that’s what happens to the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers tonight and that Big Mama stays out if it! Go Mitt!
Just now joining the thread.
Any sightings of Ponytail Guy yet?
I hope Romney gets the chance to say, “When I’m president, the buck will stop with me.”
“Bald eagle ping! Love the pics!”
Make sure you check out the Decorah Eagles site...you can see the Eagles every season,,live cam in the tree,,watch them lay eggs, raise their babies, fledge and watch the young ones fly away. This particular pair has been together a long time.
The have flow away for the rest of the year,,so nothing is happening now, site is down. However, around Jan Feb,,they will return, same eagle pair, same nest,,,wonderful to watch. Amazing!
I’ll not add very much to the chatter or erudite comments.
I’m planning to try to pay close attention, by sitting away from my computer, until I get stark, raging MAD!
I hope to be cheering like all get out for Romney, with minimum swearing at the Marxist, Crowley and my TV.
45 minutes BEFORE the debate...and FR is ALREADY slow as molasses in January...and I have a cable connection.
“Are you guys being good and eating/drinking right, through this battle?”
Eating correctly: leg of lamb on the barbie, green beans on the stove, Yukon gold taters in the oven, Tennessee whiskey and branch water on the table. We are being good! Thank you.
Thumbs up! Enjoy!
You GO girl! God bless and keep you!
Wish I had Bailey’s Irish Cream on hand.
Audience Question: “Ms. Crowley, please ask Gov Romney what he will do to cut down on fraud and waste in the entitlement system”
Candy to Gov Romney: “Gov Romney...the question is...have you stopped beating your wife?...yes or no answer please”
The forum’s slowing down for me, and I’m getting the error message. Dang.
[ Are you guys being good and eating/drinking right, through this battle? ]
I’m gonna run through the entire debate like I did last time!
I can’t watch live, it’s too stressful!
Since I have been unable to reach FR during the last two debates, I’ll get my post in now and say I hope Romney can hold his own if not best Obama in debate #2. While Obama just needs to be charming for his base to be happy, Romney is being put to a higher standard.
Not the 30% stuff but the 100% stuff!!It will keep you up!! From the looks of how slow this thing is moving here I'll be at Hot Air before 9:00 Eastern.
I think I’ll gather all the empty chairs in the house around the television to see if they rattle and shake when their President starts talking.
Oh man, I wish I was there in Maui. Have a rum drink-have one or two for me!
My favorite! With peanut butter in between?
Praying along with you Bailee however we must also remember that He is in control and the outcome may not be what we wish for. Lord gives me the ability to accept whatever is your will.
NH just had a rumble....it was all of us falling to our knees!!! GoD be with us
Wow!! Impressive. I can run about 15 minutes before I need a break. I'm doing a 5K on Saturday and I am still trying to figure out how I got roped into it. LOL
Oh do I know that! lol. I have lived through 3 quakes over 6.8 and 7.0
Obama is mentally unstable. I firmly believe he’s going to screw it up, no matter what he tries to do.
Bailey’s Mint over chocolate ice cream is my choice.
Will be on a plane....can somebody post the Luntz and CNN focus group results and flash polls after?
I’m watching by Proxy...from you all. It was a blast last time, until we went to a complete stop....I was biting my nails, eating cheetos and drinking cheap wine.....hmmm sounds like a country song!
'she who must be obeyed' ;-]
I wonder if it is a software issue and not a hardware issue.
