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.

Agree, SkyDancer - probably doesn’t have a real bible of his own anyway. He could swear on all the bibles in the world and it doesn’t mean JACK. Interesting that he would swear on the bibles of two Republicans. He probably thinks they both belonged to the jackass party.
You assume he had one to begin with! ;-)
Both men were assassinated.
SOB still thinks hes a historical republican figure.
Also, remember he has stopped the national day of prayer but celebrates Ramadan in the White House. And, he says the call to prayer for Muslims is the sweetest sound on earth.
I am a woman and don't have much physical strength at my advanced age - some burly guy needs to remove him from the White House and drop him in Mecca where he will be happy listening to the call to prayer every day. Don't they do that twice a day? Sorry, not up on Muslim call to prayer and not going to look it up.
Actually, it will be two Ko-tex’s with Bible covers over them.
Stalin attended seminary in his youth. He should have gone for the trifecta.
I guess he needs to borrow someone else’s since he doesn’t have one himself.
Why in the world does he do 2 swearing ins? HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND WHY?
Whose koran is the son-of-a-b**** going to use?
It speaks volumes that he is more concerned with who might have owned a Bible than with its content.
Good catch. That is what both the owners of those Bibles have in common.
Because 2 Bibles will remove any doubt of Dear Leader’s Christianity and devotion to Christ. At least, that’s what Obamao hopes you’ll believe.
Bibles from 2 Republicans - one who persevered through a war that was dividing a nation based on economics and resulted in freeing the slaves and the other who marched at risk to himself (no secret service) and asked that people be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.
Just how does Barack Hussein Obama, of questionable citizenship and distributor of working people’s money to the non-working (frequently of color)voting base and political cronies, identify with these two men?
Oh, I know, because they are revered and that’s what he thinks of himself.
Not enough Bibles. Need many many many more.
Probably thinks that two will give him more power like in a video game.
No there has to be another reason.
Martin Luther King dreamed of the day that all of God's children could sing, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
Barack Obama says his people should not be left to "fend for themselves," ie., live as responsible, self-sufficient, free citizens and would rather they be housed, clothed, fed and cared for on government plantations (and provided with "free" ObamaPhones).
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition, Matthew 7:22/23
Is he going to stick one of them in his *ss?
If so, he’ll have to move the Constitution out of the way.
