About the oath of office for president.
So let us assume that Obama does a bunch of presidential acts without redoing the oath of office. Even someone sues him saying none of his acts are valid because of the first flubbed attempt, who is going to determine that? Would the Supreme Court would try to invalidate all of Obama's acts? They would make their own Chief Justice look like an idiot if they ruled against Obama or let a lower court ruling against Obama stand.

3. he became president at noon before the oath
it's in the constitution that he becomes president at noon, oath or no oath, so I wouldn't think someone could say none of his acts were valid based on a flubbed oath.
