There are a few FReepers who think we should pander to them too.

He places his hand on the Constitution every day, when He wipes his azz with it.

I agree he should not swear on the Bible or swear to God. God is not his god so it means nothing. make him swear to Allah. Not that that would mean anything to him either.

Obama can lie to any god, like he does to us.

It is the new Roman Empire. Maybe he should swear to Jupiter.

Article Two, Section 1, Clause 8:

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

You will note there is no reference to God here in the Constitution.

A. Lincoln is the first president known to have added the phrase, based on contemporary reporting, at his Second Inaugural.

“Affirm” was put into the Constitution specifically for people who did not want to “swear.” And John Quincy Adams took the oath of office with his hand on a law book, not a Bible.

While you're at it, why not place your hand on the Constitution instead of a bible?" FFRF attorney Andrew L. Seidel wrote in the letter.

Why not just place your hand on your crotch like you do when they play the national anthem?

That's like arguing why worry about Islam if Allah doesn't exist.

“I, Barack Hussein Obama do solemnly swear that I will execute the Office of President of the United States faithfully and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.”

Actually he’s hasn’t done anything after the first word “States” so why not stop there.

Obama may replace the phrase with “Allah wills it”.

It was General Washington who added that phrase at his first inauguration. Like so many of his firsts, he was right again
