26. Thanks-I heard he wore his here-come-the-judge robes, too. So
this was serious. And now it's officially history. President Obama has a great ring to it.

21. That's my question and exactly what
time? If you're into astrology like I am..yesterday at any time before 12:30pm the Moon was VOC and not a good beginning but today is so much better for the start of Obama's Swearing In.

So, according to me(and others) Robert's actually did us a favor. I also think Hillary's confirmation was much better for today than yesterday morning. Call me crazy or whatever but I find this amazing and another freakin' miracle.

28. Then again, they couldn't make that argument without admitting that the first oath counted.
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 09:31 PM by Ken Burch
And that would mean arguing that the oath was a legal negative. A "double affirmative" would STILL be an affirmative.

34. If Roberts fucked up his own oath when HE took it.....
...does that mean he's not REALLY Chief Justice?

Using the Freeper "Logic" it would have to mean exactly that.

Now if we could just get rid of Fat Tony and his sidekick Clarence the Clown.......

this with millions of people watching.

16. I'd like to think that.
But I've become so paranoid over the last 8 years, that it is a knee jerk reaction now.

31. I have a different take on this..
I like the timing better today for Obama to be officially be Sworn In.

<snips>

"WASHINGTON Chief Justice John G. Roberts was ushered into the Map Room of the White House on Wednesday night to re-administer the oath of office to President Barack Obama because the original oath on Tuesday had a word out of sequence.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the move was made out of "an abundance of caution" in consultation with White House Counsel Greg Craig. Obama's second swearing-in, devoid of the pomp of the initial event, took place at 7:35 p.m. in the presence of a few aides and a press pool. The chief justice was wearing a court robe. "Are you ready to take the oath?" Roberts said. "I am," Obama said, "And we're going to do it very slowly."

It capped a packed first full day for the 44th president, and comes on the heels of Obama's expected signing of an executive order, as soon as Thursday, shuttering the terrorism detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.

Obama began the day by attending a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral, a tradition for new presidents.

He also celebrated a political victory as his former presidential primary rival, Hillary Clinton, was confirmed by the Senate as secretary of state, with a vote of 94-2."
