CEDAR RAPIDS --- Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry won't be coming to Davenport and Cedar Rapids today. Instead, vice presidential candidate John Edwards will take his place.
Campaign officials say that Kerry's voice is strained, and he needs to conserve it for the debates against President Bush, the first of which is coming up a week from today in Coral Gables, Fla. The three debates are considered a pivotal juncture in the campaign.The Blogspirator recently had laryngitis. It lasted for three weeks.
At the point of one week, he couln't talk at all.
One week from now... the debates.
Maybe it has something do with internal Democrat polls?
The voice box is a mirror which reflects the ills of man. This includes stress. Stress can lead to misuse of the muscles around the vocal cords. This in turn produces hoarseness.
He sounded okay at his press conference.
Not surprising. Kerry's been looking exhausted for some time now. I don't think has the stamina and vigor to be President.
he has an opportunity to show he has desire and self-sacrifice, but he wimps out ... good for us
I saw him last night on TV... he was "horse." Oops, "hoarse"
He simply cannot take the prospect of working more than 3 or 4 days a week. His voice, body, mind, botoxed-face, etc, start to give out. Did anyone tell him the job of Prez is 24/7, that even vacations are generally "working" ones? This guy hasn't shown up at his day job in about 18 months!
This is not good!
Kerry's poll numbers always go up when he stops talking and stays out of sight!
Oh, the doom Oh, the gloom :-)
Kerry having voice problems as did Clintoon. Kerry could just show up and do his silly gestures. Better yet, Tuh-RAY-zuh could speak in his place. teehee!
Seems as though Kerry can't go the distance... Oh well, he probably REALLy didn't want to debate Bush anyway, and now he has an excuse if things keep going the way they are...
His voice is definitely cracking. And he does look tired and not into it. Maybe it's time for a shot of Botox and B12. Anyway, where is Edwards, can't he pick up the slack?
Kerry was just on Fox News calling the President of Iraq a liar.
He sure takes a lot of "rest time," doesn't he?
And he has all next week off.
Then he needs to shut his bloomin mouth today! He was just on Fox News lying as usual. Go home! John! You classless traitor! Go Home!
His voice was strong enough to spread his lies about Bush and Allawi on live tv just minutes ago. He bypassed Ohio because he's losing his ass there.
He could just show up and do that tongue thing that he does.
