White House press secretary Robert Gibbs expressed doubt that "President Obama will take the oath of office again, to rectify any lingering concerns over the legality of the mangled version".
Per Drudge: "At 7:35 pm, Roberts administered the oath of office again to obama in the map room."
First lesson from this new administration: Ignore every utterance from press secretary Robert Gibbs' lying pie hole.
Quick poll question:
Since the first oath was flubbed so badly that a do-over was necessary, who was president between the oaths? Was George W. Bush still president by default, or is it non-negotiable that the exiting president's administration expires at noon on Inauguration day? Maybe we were rudderless and without our messiah-in-chief for over 30 hours!
*HORRORS at the thought!*
Caroline Kennedy told the NYT that she was, you know, available to run things, you know, temporarily.
Al Haig sent Obama a text message to his Blackberry after the initial oath stating, "As of now, I am in control here."
"We're going to try to seat Al Franken," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Meanwhile, George Soros quietly continues to pull the strings behind the scenes as the true power of the party.
"It's all moot now, as Obama is most certainly MOTUS after the second oath was flawless," stated White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. I guess that settles that then.
Obama has officially assumed his Throne (formerly known as "chair") in the Oval Office. Sitting behind a cleaned desk, he makes a few quick phone calls. Reports state he made his first call to President Abbas. I would venture to guess that his next calls were to the rest of the Arab world, Castro, Chavez, Ahkmadeenadude, and possibly Oprah. Not sure of the order.
At some point, Obama opens a desk drawer and finds an envelope marked, "To: #44, From: #43". As is tradition, it was a personal note from the exiting president to he incoming president. What did it say!? Your guess is as good as mine.
"It simply stated 'MISHUN AKOMPLUSHED' scrawled with a crayon in big block letters," said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.
Shut up sir. You have no credibility here. As for the note, we can be confident that it was full of class and sincerity, just like the man who wrote it.
