Skip to comments.Obama Sworn in... Again
Posted on 01/21/2009 7:23:11 PM PST by MeanGreen2008
At 735 pm [Tuesday], Roberts administered the oath of office again to Obama in the Map Room. Robert Gibbs said the WH counsel, Greg Craig, believes the oath was fine Tuesday, but one word was out of sequence so they did this out of a "an abundance of caution." "We decided it was so much fun..." Obama joked while sitting on a couch. Obama stood and walked over to make small talk with pool as Roberts donned his black robe. "Are you ready to take the oath?" Roberts asked. "I am, and we're going to do it very slowly," Obama replied. Oath took 25 seconds. After a flawless recitation, Roberts smiled and said, "congratulations, again." Obama said, "thank you, sir." Smattering of applause. "All right." Obama said. "The bad news for the pool is there's 12 more balls."
As a legislator, he is accustomed to having do-overs.
You mean, he didn’t say, “Present”?
Looks like John Roberts is not buying into the claim that Obama is not a natural born citizen.
I saw a quick picture of this second oath and don’t remember seeing a bible. So which one is legitimate??
Bet he didn’t have to provide proof of citizenship....
Look to see if the title was ‘Necrinomicon’.
Obama bumbled present on his first swear in.
Until I see a REAL C.O.L.B. BC,
he's just "PRES__ENT" Obama= Without"ID"
This does not bode well for our country. Can’t even get the oath of office right.
America, LOOK OUT.
Nobody is. It was a stupid claim that held no water in the first place.
No matter how many times he repeats the oath, that doesn’t make him an AMERICAN!
A bible is not required. Teddy Roosevelt didn’t use one.
What does that mean?
He is off to a super start. I can't believe I was ever worried.
Change, Hope, Change, Hope... all is well.
Don’t suppose we can consider yesterday a first term do you? LOL
No “abundance of caution” for the BC though.
I wonder if Roberts was nervous because he personally doubts Barry’s natural born status?
