WASHINGTON -- President Obama has been forced to cancel several debate practice sessions with Senator John F. Kerry, whom he tapped to play stand-in for Republican challenger Mitt Romney, leaving little time for them to spar ahead of next weeks first presidential debate.
The Massachusetts senator has held at least one mock debate with Obama to help him prepare for the first matchup against the former Massachusetts governor to be held Oct. 3 in Denver, but several others were cancelled due to the the presidents busy schedule, said deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter.

Fine, this is great news. Without the teleprompter and sufficient practice, this Empty Suit will babble incoherently even more.
Less practice = more self-inflicted trouble.
Romney is taking these debates very seriously.
These are not the actions of a candidate who the polls say has this election all wrapped up.
getting the excuse reading for poor debate performance ,I was working for you
Lowering expectations for Obama. No matter how lousy he does, it will be miraculous how well he did because he didn’t even have time to prepare.
Quote: “These are not the actions of a candidate who the polls say has this election all wrapped up.”
the teleprompter president, phoning it in since day 1!
He and Reggie Love need to get to the golf course to see if they can get a hole in one????
He’s making a decision between campaigning or debate practice. The debates will be the difference for Romney IMO. This is strange.
He’s losing, knows he’s losing, and is going to enjoy the benefits of the Presidency while being regaled upon by his supporters at campaign stops.
Only reason he’s still fundraising is that the DNC is broke and he doesn’t want to be on their bad side after this is all said and done.
This is the Dem setup in the event that Obama doesn’t do well in the debates. They will say: “He didn’t have enough time to prepare because he was so busy being our president, creating jobs, improving the economy and managing our foreign policy.”
They’re already floating excuses so that the MSM can cover for him if he bombs, which I hope he does.
Obviously he's working so hard at being President doesn't have time for silly trifles like debates.
(Look for the MSM to tell us how little debates really mean starting the morning of Oct. 4).
Here's Zero's public schedule today:

Doesn't look all that busy to me.
Just makes me wonder what the heck the boy wonder is up to.
Meanwhile, Romney has been practicing for months. Obama’s ego is so huge, he doesn’t think he needs prep. After all, he beat Haji Hillary and McLame. He’s a god!
Obama only has time for one meeting a day in his busy schedule, and he was shamed into having to spend it on his daily presidential briefings?
Demonstrates his complete arrogance and laziness.
I think the MSM is going to do its job on Wednesday night, and I don’t think Obama is going to like it.
Hope he loses his temper in public.
Obama Campaign’s Debate Expectations Game Jumps The Shark
Busy schedule? Fund raising, TV appearances, some campaigning. Who are they trying to kid? Not sure if it is an advantage to do the practice with Kerry or skip it.
Kerry is still prepping for the debates, alongside an empty chair
getting ready to cancel the debates ,sorry way tooooo busy working for you ,my people ,a phone in every pot
Some intrepid journalist will leak Obama the questions (poor guy, he's been too busy to prep) in plenty of time to have the teleprompter ready.
2) Lowering expectations
“Kerry is still prepping for the debates, alongside an empty chair”
He should be doing it next to a woodpile.
I hope they do. It won't sell as soon as people are reminded he misses intelligence briefings and spends his time on The View and jetting off to Las Vegas.
The obvious bravado that exudes from the Obama camp reminds one of the aura of confidence of a drunk about to walk a tightrope fifty feet above the crowd, without a net.
Naturally, The Won does not need the practice....
They cannot possibly cue up the Teleprompter quickly enough to provide smooth and relevant responses to what will be coming at him in the course of the debate.
No way do I believe this story.
It is just more pablum for the sheeple! He is not expecting to win, and can keep any money left for his "pResidential Library" in HI!
I've been too busy to debate Lurch ... and I don't really need to anyway cause the libtard newser moderators are taking their questions directly from DNC talking points!
I’m not worried. He’ll get a script from the moderators and the producer.
Seriously, these “debates” are way too staged and prepared in advance. I say let’s do surprise debate, where we tell them both on Monday that it’s gonna be Wednesday in a school auditorium with a pool camera and everybody’s smart phones. Sort of like the problems real life hands out.
Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner.
Obama: What can this loser (John Kerry) teach me?
His double is preparing so that Barry doesn’t have to do the work.
No matter. BO knows that his presstitutes have already written their articles proclaiming him the winner of all three debates.
After all, they all agreed that Reagan lost, Papa Bush lost, George Bush lost and I’m sure Romney will lose too. It’s a tradition with the Democrat media to see their candidate as the winner, no matter how lame the performance. Fortunately, 60% of the American people now refuse to believe anything these grifters report.
Why does he need to practice? He already has the questions, and his staff has prepared answers for him.
Obama got one mock debate and had enough. Either his ego wouldn't let him go through that again or he is just to lazy. This stuff about a "busy schedule" is horsehockey.
Who’s kidding who? Obama already has the questions that will be asked and has memorized his cute little digs and quips and one-liners. I could score 100 on any test if I had the questions in advance. The press/media know that’s the only way Obama could win the debate without his teleprompter telling him what to say.
Those two dufuses are made for each other too.
What are the days that were cancelled?
We'll check the white house's pResident's schedule ;)
the msm will just blackout the debates.
The NYT probably has their stories already in the can.
Well being short tempered will appeal to his base and that is who he has to gen up..
BWWWWWAAAAAHAHHHAHHAHHAHHHAHHAHAH (snort) HHAHHHAHHAHHHAHHAHAHHAHHA (choke) HAHHAHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHAHHHAHHHAH (choke) HAHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHH (gasp) HAHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHH
Hes losing, knows hes losing, and is going to enjoy the benefits of the Presidency while being regaled upon by his supporters at campaign stops.”
Interesting. I’ve noticed he’s looking awful, defeated. Kevin DuJan (Hillbuzz) also says this but more succinctly: “Look at Barack Obama. Just look at him. This is not a man who looks like he thinks hes winning. This is the kind of look people have on their faces when they stay awake night and day wondering if tomorrow is the day the Sheriff will knock on their door to evict them from their homes. He looks terrified. He has no idea what to do. He doesnt understand why his old magic is not working. The crowds are tiny. No one wants to hear the old soaring speeches. Outside of the corrupt, vintage media, nobodys legs are tingling. This guy is TOAST and he knows it.”
Truth is stranger than fiction.
Netanyahu Draws Israel’s Red Line for Iran Amid Secret Discussion With US On Spring Attack
Odds on a “crisis” that calls Obama back to the WH and prevents his participation in the debate?
The media is going ot carry his water; the “moderators” are going ot give him the questions ahead of time; the polstrers are going to give him the win. Why does he need any practice in these fake debates?
