Skip to comments.Final debate LIVE THREAD
Posted on 10/22/2012 2:44:46 PM PDT by GeorgiaDawg32
Available to watch on any news channel. 9 p.m. Eastern time.
Yes it's early but NCIS is a rerun.
WA Post-ABC tracking poll has Romney up 52-46 in swing states!
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.
“In for at least one post tonight.”
That’s all I’m sayin....
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.
I’d just be happy to ACCESS the posts.
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.
It already seems a little slow... I need to find a plan B for tonight.
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.
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:
Americas 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 tomorrows world.
Please let me know if you find one.
My plan B is in post 62. LOL
I’ve been monitoring debates and elections since 04 on FR and never had any problem.
But this time around PU!
I can’t stand to watch the Kenyan/weasel so I guess the dog and I will go shopping tonight.
See you all later!
The system handled the R primaries just fine. Something has happened...like some entity attaching packets to every back and forth page load and post.
(In Before the First Obama Lie)
Have fun shopping. ;>)
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.
I’d like Bob Scheiffer to ask both of them when they think Maalox will be back on store shelves.
Mop the floor with him, Kumbaya....
Make him cry like a girl, Kumbaya...
Oh, Lord, Kumbaya" (with thanks to Mark Levin for the vision, Kumbaya)
Hot Air, they have a live thread!
< / smartass . . no, it's most of us . . the patience of Job will likely be required of you tonight, again . . LOL >
In Before This Site Slows Down To A Slow Crawl.
2 hours and seven minutes to go.
Praying for Romney to deliver a knockout blow.
If this is in fact to be The thread, perhaps insertion under Breaking is called for ?
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.
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!
“Hot Air, they have a live thread!”
Yup, that’s where I was last time and that’s where I’ll be tonight! See you there!
“If this is in fact to be The thread, perhaps insertion under Breaking is called for ?”
That ought to cause the final crash of this thread, LOL!
I didn’t know you didn’t have TV.
I’m on DirectTV.
You have a direct link? I’m not finding it 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.
I can’t find the Hot Air live debate thread, either!
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.
“I cant find the Hot Air live debate thread, either!”
I can’t either!
That is because it is a bunch of hot air. /sarc
I am not having any reload or posting problems. Is anyone else finding it easy to do the same?
I think it's a kinda chickensh!t move myself, but they didn't ask me . . .
I haven’t had TV for about 5 years. Lousy service, they kept cutting stations and charging more. I dumped it.
I’ll check the thread after the Cardinals-Giants game to see how it went (Hopefully while celebrating a Cardinals win, but that’s another issue)
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.
