President Obama is putting a symbolic twist on a time-honored tradition, taking the oath of office for his second term with his hand placed not on a single Bible, but two -- one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and one by Abraham Lincoln.

Will they cancel each other out somehow?
There’ll be a Koran sandwiched between them.
And will he drop out the “. . . and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”?
When barry touches the Bibles will it leave blisters on his skin.
And this time, no sand statue?
He needs two Bibles to convince us that he’s telling the truth. It won’t work. We know him well by now.
What? Did he misplace his mother’s Bible from the little red church?
Who gives a flying flip? The Bible means no more to him than the Constitution. It is all for show.
Anyone know whatever happened to that koran that Saddam Hussein had penned in his own blood?
Barry is afraid that if he touches a Bible, it will burst into flames. He needs a backup, just in case...
When will they start building the giant statue of Obama next to the great saint Lincoln ?
Obama is a narcissistic idiot and proud of it.
Why not just use his Koran with a fake Bible cover?
What a pandering egotistical narcissistic moron.
I vaguely remember an episode of an old western (maybe Big Valley?) with a court scene. The Chinese witness offered to swear on a stack of Bibles. The attorney, knowing the witness was a Buddhist, offered to let him swear on, IIRC, a dead chicken or some such thing. I wonder if this show by BO is along the same lines? IE, doesn’t matter how many Bibles he uses if he does not believe in the power of the one true God.
Martin Luther King, Jr. would be appalled at what Obama’s policies and rhetoric has done to race relations in this country and the black community in general (unemployment rates, crime rates, etc...). Obama is obviously unaware of the teachings of that great man to think that he is somehow worthy to connect himself symbolically to Dr. King in any way.
I can’t believe that Dr. King’s family supports this.
nobama should be fingerprinted and jailed...not sworn-in.
Maybe he should stop using the Bible as a coaster and open it...
Ya think his conscience has been dulled just a little?
You can bet that he will force Chief Turncoat Roberts to swear him in a second time with “THE HOLY BIBLE” noticeably absent and probably “THE SATANIC KORAN” under his right hand!
