Well that didn't take long


Chris Wallace of Faux News speculates Obama isn't really the president because Roberts flubbed the oath and Obama didn't say it exactly as it is in the Constitution.

And here I thought it was just the Free Republic loonies! :)

There's so much WTF there. Although Wallace is probably also a Freeper.

Oh how I long for an icon of, "It's a trap!"

Apparently there's been some noise at TrekBBS about this foolishness as well. (I haven't logged on since Monday night, so I haven't actually seen it.)

As someone else pointed out, Obama's birth certificate could be made of tissue paper at this point, it's all kind of moot now anyway. :)

There was an article about it in this morning's paper.

It is in fact very simple:

Power officially passed to the President Elect at noon on January 20th, regardless of whether the oath had been taken yet.

If the oath as professed publicly was flawed, it is simply re-administered privately in front of witnesses at a later time (like in the Oval Office).

It's happened at least three times.

One could hope that perhaps even they can't swallow all their bias without choking once in a while.

To paraphrase Leno: why are they worried about not having a president for a day, when we haven't had a president the past 8 years?
