I guess Roberts and Obama will have to do this every morning until they get it right.

BREAKING NON-NEWS!

Of course he’s not the President... the proper term is “King”

One of my children told me today that no one cares about
the constitution.

Sadly, I think she might be correct.

What a legacy!

The Messiah King doesn’t need to be bothered with any trivialities such as a presidential oath.

Yes Obama needs to recite the oath perfectly.....the birth certificate is just a minor detail.

The other proper term is “Dear Leader”. Kim Jong Il should be proud.

During the re-administration of the Oath at 7:35 pm January 21, 2009, what was to be the official Constitutionally correct swearing in, a Bible was not used. Therefore, Barack Obama has yet to be Constitutionally sworn in as Commander in Chief.

Apparently now a lack of a Bible this time queers the deal.

I’ve heard that in Chinese numerology and Fung Shui (not that I believe in either one), the number 4 is considered unlucky because “the pronunciation of 4 is a homonym with the word for death or suffering.” (Wikipedia)

So the number 44 would be doubly unlucky?

So far he’s not having much luck with the oath...

This is ridiculous.

First, you'd think that a Bible is not necessary for administering the oath. I bet Michael Newdow would back me up on that.

Second, with all these Balls being held at swanky DC hotels, you'd think that somebody could scrounge up a Gideon's Bible somewhere...

Look at the bright side. Obama’s new executive orders should be null in void.

fo (4) does rhyme with ho. That doesn't sound like a good omen.

Or 4 + 4 = 0

Without a Bible it looks like a high five rather than being sworn in.

That’s good to know since 0bama only owns a Koran and had to borrow his last Bible.

Gotta be a natural born citizen according to the law.
Kenya isn’t a state and has never been.
So the oath don’t matter if he’s illegal. it’s just breaking another law.

Now we know that Lincoln wasn’t too happy with his Bible being used. Otherwise saying the oath would had gone smoothly.

Though its worth arguing over the eligibility of Biden since he was an Obama nominee would it surprise anyone of a possibility that the inauguration was just for show, that the real POTUS and apparently STILL POTUS is Biden?

His ceremony was performed properly and the continuation of office takes effect.

Hah, I bet this goes on every day, next they will say its the wrong bible or it has to be a King James.

Let it happen, they are buying it, see, no riots.

Anyhow we all know the real goals, this is just smoke and mirrors.

Surely there must be a Bible, any Bible in the White House, even a kiddie Bible, no?

Weren't they in church this morning? couldn't they beg, borrow or steal one?

Simple, if neither Obama or Biden are legal, then the Speaker of the House is next in line. Calling President Pelosi....

"So what did Obama mess up this time?"

Actually, it was Roberts that screwed up on the Oath of Office. If Hussein had any sense, he would have said it correctly in spite of what Roberts was saying. I think he was trying to, but was thrown off track by Roberts trying to correct himself.
