12. That looks like it will be a classic.
The copyright says 2008. Was this a prophecy?

14. Wow that is weird. It was in my morning paper today.
I'm guessing Siers just put the wrong year.

27. i don't think it was a prophecy
but rather a statement on the fact that obama has inherited a constitution that was shredded by bush and friends

15. That is the illustrated part of the point I made yesterday for which I was called...
Fascist enabler. It is really past time to drop all this 'flub' shit no matter who flubbed it. It's time to drop the 'Obama is no Clark Gable' shit, and get moving the fuck on.

17. That explains why Roberts flubbed it.
He picked up the shreds in the wrong sequence.

32. You know...
John Roberts couldn't get it right--from memory, at his age (the youngest justice on the Court). Meanwhile...John Paul Stevens--age 84, I think--had to administer a much longer oath to Joe Biden, did it from memory, and got it--perfectly. It's funny how many right-wing nutjobs think that means Obama isn't really president. I'm almost surprised Chris Wallace over at FOX hasn't started an e-mail and letter-writing campaign.

At noon (when Barrack actually became president) I started tearing up (yeah, I admit it), turned to my wife and said: "It's finally over--the new era has started". It's really the most wonderful thing to be living during a Democratic Administration again! :D

B-)

34. Obama and swearing-in misspeak
Precisely, and thank you for saying it.

To everyone/anyone who thinks the minor flub in the swearing-in has any bearing on Obama's status as POTUS, the 20th Amendment to the Constitution explicitly states:

"The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January ... and the terms of their successors shall then begin."


The swearing in/oath of office is immaterial. Period. End of story. The freepers can just STFU. Now.

Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 10:13 PM by calimary
Just proves that not only can any qualified American-born person of any color be President, but any MORON can be named to the Supreme Court. :eyes:

All I can say to Supreme Court Chief Justice roberts: if you act like a jerk, you're gonna be treated like a jerk.

Asshole should resign.

43. And we pay Roberts $214,000 for doing his "job" - Tells it like it was - Not how it will be!
Thanks for posting this!

Here's to our future!

Can't we just declare all of the chimp's appointments and proclamations to be null and void?

Get rid of Roberts and all the rest of the chimp's goons? :smoke:
