I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear again…

Blame this on Chief Justice Roberts – Obama had a do-over today:

WASHINGTON – After the flub heard around theworld, President Barack Obama has taken the oath of office. Again.Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the oath to Obama on Wednesdaynight at the White House — a rare do-over.

Thesurprise moment came in response to Tuesday’s much-noticed stumble,when Roberts got the words of the oath a little off, which promptedObama to do so, too.

Don’t worry, the White House says: Obama has still been president since noon on Inauguration Day.

Of course the White House says that. But we know the truth. President Joe Biden was our 43.5th President, for a day :)

Here’s video of the flub:

(I assume that Obama used his middle name again the second time as he did the first…)

Saudis propose to relocate the Prophet's (saw) tomb from Masjid al-Nabawi
The above photo of the Mecca clock tower, or as I like to call it, "Big Bin", was during my hajj a few years ago. It is part of my general observations of the "Meccahattan"-ization of the holiest place in Islam, the way that the Saudi religious authorities are utterly obliterating the historical wea
