Obama's official inauguration will be private
The Washington Times ^ | Dec. 6, 2012 | Stephen Dinan

Because next year's inauguration falls on a Sunday, President Obama will hold only a small, private swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, and will hold a big public redo the next day.

The Inaugural Committee announced Thursday that activities will last three days: a day of service on Saturday, the small private ceremony on Sunday, and the public swearing-in, parade and balls on Monday.

No, he wants privacy to tongue wrestle his best boyfriend SCOTUS CJ Roberts...the man who put America's freedom in the claws of a fascist tyrant.

Soros is his sugerdaddy.

The official part of the oath is given to Roberts himself. It’s important that the public know about it, but not necessary they see it. The assurance that he’s not lying is supposed to be not the publicity but the fact that it is taken on the Bible.

By the way, why the hell do we still have oaths? No one believes in them anymore. Read Hamlet or something else old and they’re swearing to something every other page. That was for a society of status and religion. We have neither, much.

Now we are a society of contract. You can take me to court to enforce promises, but mostly I can break my word when I feel like it. Unless I’m in court, because the law id pretentious, of getting married, because children are important and fighting over crappy collections of nicknacks is bothersome.

It’s also the day of the AFC and NFC championship games so he probably does not want to be upstaged.

Sucha deal, a day of work and then a 4 million dollar
vacation. Not bad for an activist.

The same way he got sworn in the last time. The first oath was rendered invalid because of Roberts' (deliberate, I think) botched delivery of the oath. So Obama was sworn in again, in private. No video or audio of the second swearing in were provided, as far as I know.

We are so screwed.

When the Communist, Benghazi-Coward Obama is installed as the titular head of the Obamanation Regime on January 20, 2013, the only question remaining will be “When will the Obama Regime achieve Absolute Power over the United States of America?”

. . . and in the private swearing in, I wonder if he will omit the words, “protect and defend the Constitution”. It will certainly give him an out in his second term.
