“WASHINGTON – After the flub heard around the world, President Barack Obama has taken the oath of office. Again. Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the oath to Obama on Wednesday night at the White House — a rare do-over. The surprise moment came in response to Tuesday’s much-noticed stumble, when Roberts got the words of the oath a little off, which prompted Obama to do so, too.
Don’t worry, the White House says: Obama has still been president since noon on Inauguration Day.
Nevertheless, Obama and Roberts went through the drill again out of what White House counsel Greg Craig called “an abundance of caution.”
But something was missing…the Bible, but don’t worry, when you’re the messiah you can skip these things.
“The president said he did not have his Bible with him, but that the oath was binding anyway.”
Uh-huh. You wonder just how many other things will be “binding anyway”. At least the media is catching up as to who caused the flub.
“It happened when Obama interrupted Roberts midway through the opening line, in which the president repeats his name and solemnly swears.”
It’s going to be a fun four years eh?
