Are you saying that if we get in this forum early we won’t get bumped off the forum during a “reload”?

Getting on early is not the issue. Once the recent debates have started FR has been overloaded. A reload might work but will usually fail.

"Live" debate threads of late have turned into "Unavailable" debate threads.

I’ll try to catch some of it between the baseball game and football game. I really enjoyed watching CSPAN’s reruns of the 1984 Reagan-Mondale debate (since I missed that one due to traveling) and then they had the Bush-Dukakis debate.

Already sooooo slow.

There’s time to reboot servers, clean out temp files, do whatever is necessary to get this show on the road before 9pm.

Please.

I really miss the Live Threads. Remember the days when we had to literally “speed read” to even keep up on the threads? I will hold positive thoughts that John can figure out what the problems are.

I can’t stand that I can’t get on during anything at all important. It stinks! Election night ought to be another disaster... I’ve always relied on FR for election night, but sure won’t count on it this year.

O’s best hope is to drag Romney into a dirtfight, and get him to say something outrageous, or appear petty and vindictive. Romney merely needs to sat above the fray and refuse to be dragged into a brawl. Refuse to go toe to toe, Mitt. Soar high and be Presidential, Mr. Romney and the victory will be yours.

“Brought to you by the letter O....... and the number 16 trillion.”

I think that was my favorite Romney line.

There, I got in before the shutdown and just in case I can’t get back on later, here’s my final evaluation of tonights debate.


-Romney demonstrated command over the subjects. At times Romney was humorous, but at all times he looked presidential. He was nicer than he needed to be and I would have liked it better if he had gone for the throat. Still, Romney won on content and competence. His leadership qualities overwhelmed Obama. At the end of the debate, I saw Romney grin, mostly with his eyes.

-Obama looked both angry and defeated. It’s clear that he knows it’s over, but he will continue to fight. Obama became confused and couldn’t keep track of all of his lies. Obama stammered more tonight than he did during the previous debates. When Obama was leaving the stage, I could see the tears of defeat in his eyes.

Overall, it is clear that Romney won tonights debate and his already storming momentum should overwhelm the Obama team during the next few days. This was clearly a battle between a soon to be ellected president and a failed dictator wannabe.

Michelle looks puffy tonight, perhaps her drinking is finally beginning to take it’s toll. Maybe it’s the stress of the race (no, not her skin color), the knowledge that she will be leaving the White House in shame and her lack of recent lavish vacations that is making her look so prematurely aged.

Ann looked lovely..... a real First Lady and a mother who loves her country.

I wasn’t surprised when Krauthammer droned on about the previous debate, “points, points, points....”. He’s smart, but it looks like he missed this debate, just like the last one.

R&R 2012.....

Obama has gotta go.....

The format calls for six 15-minute segments, each devoted to one international topic. Mr. Schieffer himself got to pick these subjects, and they are as follows:

• America’s role in the world.

• Our longest war – Afghanistan and Pakistan.

• Red lines – Israel and Iran.

• The changing Middle East and the new face of terrorism, Part 1.

• The changing Middle East and the new face of terrorism, Part 2.

• The rise of China and tomorrow’s world.

I can’t stand to watch the Kenyan weasel lie like a dog, either. I would prefer to follow the Live Thread on FR, but that’s not going to work.

I remember the good old days, when we could have live threads, and yell and make fun of Kerry, Pelosi, Dirty Harry, Clinton and their ilk all evening long. I think the night when Kerry was nominated was as much fun as I’ve ever had on a computer. We absolutely howled, he was such a ridiculous incompetent. Obama is ridiculous, but he’s scary ridiculous.

Those days aren't gone. You still have to "speed read", but in this case it is because by the time the page refreshes enough time has elapsed to allow a stupid number of old posts to hit the thread.

It’s already getting slow. I tried three times to reply to you, and kept getting the first page of this debate thread again. Thought I’d have to write you a private message if that would even go through. Doesn’t look promising for tonight. I’ve been here since ‘97, and this is the worst it’s ever been.

"am I the only one that can’t get through during these debates?"

Nope, lots of us do. Sometimes, I just quit, listen to the debate on the radio and DVR it in case it doesn't make it to YouTube like the others do.

When the thread slows down, or its tomorrow, I read and sometimes post then.

Two hours and counting down...see you there!

Amen. I pray that Mitt Romney will feel the presence of guiding angels around him all this evening, and that he will be calmed and invigorated by it.

"Obama wants to talk about anything but foreign policy. Foreign policy and the economy. Anything but foreign policy and the economy. And Fast & Furious..."

You are so right. He also doesn't want to mention terrorism, perferring to call terrorist murder to work place problems.

He also will not want to discuss Benghazi.

There are a lot of things this guy would prefer not to talk about. If it was up to him, the debate would last about 5 minutes and then he can rest up for early t-time tomorrow morning.

It can be slow, your best bet is to keep the live thread open and don’t close that window. Use other tabs or windows for live streams, etc.
