Obama: Presidential Oath Reloaded

 

President Barack Obama was sworn in today for a second time by Chief Justice John Roberts, after they bungled the constitutional oath of office at yesterday’s inauguration.

Witnessed by more than 1 million people on the national Mall and millions more worldwide, Roberts misstated the oath as “execute the office of president of the United States faithfully” and Obama followed suit.

Officials believed the oath was administered properly yesterday but they decided to ask Roberts to swear Obama in again out of “an abundance of caution, because there was one word out of sequence.”

  Darn beat to the punch  
 
Had myself talked into submitting my first article instead of being a comment junkie...you beat me to the punch. Interesting how one word out of place can make such a difference. Yet an oath is an oath and if we're going to follow the Constitution better to retake it than to sweep it under although I am not sure that most Americans would know it verbatim or even realize the error.

  So much attention to detail  
 
For a man who refuses to release his true birth certificate for inspection by public officials charged with its review!

He may be a President or a he may be an imposter acting as President in violation of the Constitution, and he dosen't have the courtesy to quell the controversy and settle the issue by releasing the damned document!

What a farce this ceremony is, I tell you.

You can quell the controversy yourself. Just start taking your medication. When the fog lifts, you'll realise that you've been upset over nothing.

There's no controversy. Like evolution, it's a manufactured issue.

I'm sorry you feel the need to grasp at straws for your non-issue Republitard conspiracy theory. I'm also kind of sorry that your party lost because America wasn't ruined enough over the last eight years that we needed more economic and social ruin. If it makes you feel any better, the Republicans may have lost the election, but America won. Get over it.

Truth is time will tell. Just as BigBird may realize he has been upset over nothing, the opposite could hold true, and we could all wake up and find we just been misled into a mess. Seems to happen to some degree with all the presidents we elect. Bottom line is, neither you nor I knows anymore then a flower does about what will be.

".. and we could all wake up and find we just been misled into a mess."
Yes, these two options seem equally likely. It's basically a 50/50 thing, isn't it? I mean, there are two options, after all.
