And the FOX I heard didn't say what you think they said.
You mean yet another lawsuit to be dismissed without comment.

It seems you owe several apologies.
You focus on something unimportant. It's just an official ceremony. Of course he's the president.

If Roberts recuses himself I'll pay attention to it, but either he wasn't aware of its existence yesterday, or it didn't bother him very much.

Unless, of course, that's why he bobbled the oath while swearing in President Obama.

How utterly profound.

Some constitutional lawyers are suggesting that Obama and Roberts have a private do-over. Apparently there is some precedent here, with Chester Arthur and Calvin Coolidge.

Experts say Obama should retake the oath

After all, it is more then just a ceremony, it is a declaration of the official Presidential duties. Years ago when I was sworn in as a LE officer, every single specific word had to be stated correctly.

LMAO We have read your posts before,so spare us that little joke.Where are all of your (wrong) pre election super secret sources now??? Back at Wal Mart as greeters?

Being sworn in as POTUS is a LOT different than being sworn in by Mayor McCheese at the local Ronald McDonald playland.You did realize that that was just a dude in a funny suit and that badge was a plastic one they give ALL of the customer's kids in there didn't you???
