    [fnny] in regards to Tango's post:

    I don't think Obama will have any problem swearing to this, he only needs to do this to the best of his abilities.

    Maybe the better question is - Which president has done the best job of living up to their oath to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution?

    barry will NOT swear in on a Bible - I guarentee that. So, will it still be binding if done on the islamic koran?

    I just can't accept that.

    Maybe Jefferson?

    One of my favorite of Jefferson’s quotes, "I hope we shall crush ... in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country<sup id="cite_ref-44" class="reference">"

    </sup>Too bad that wish didn't come true.<sup id="cite_ref-44" class="reference">

    I watched an HBO special with my favorite man ......the late George Carlin.
    In "It's bad for ya".....
    He discusses in his own way, the swearing on a bible.....
    Now that is something quite interesting.
    He hits some rather harsh nails dead on!
    For a comedian, he managed to get my attention!

    He was able to see through the BS........

    Doesn't the Koran say it is OK to lie to the infidels. I'm going to record that moment of his ceremony. Politicians don't take the "oath" seriously. The upstart isn't even elegible to be prez.

    This is what Pastor Manning said in a YouTube video. Most people dismissed him as a nut job for his anti-Obama rhetoric. We shall see.........

    I can't Wait for the people who voted for him on the basis of pulling out of Iraq and A big Financial Change to be completely perplexed when he does none of it, instead they watch the country fall apart on his watch. It will be so delicious in a terrible way to see their minds reel with the idea that they might have been lied to by their savior.

    I know I am in a vindictive mood with the man, and yes I realize that many of the die hards and the media outlets will blame the Bush Administration for the situation (and While they were partially to be blamed, not all of it can rest on him).

    At the Tail end of that however, Is the fact that I DO HOPE that Obama turns our down trodden economy around and we begin to rise from the grip of ashes to reignite our flame as a global power.

    Long Shpeal and I am good.

    I, too, would like nothing better than to eat a big serving of crow and see peace and prosperity return to this country. But my crystal ball doesn't show that happening.

    Lets hope o does actually manage to do something constructive during his first 'Hundred Days' - but I will not be holding my breath. The Democrat Party accomplished NADA during thier 'first hundred days' despite all the prior fuzzy-feel-good rhetoric and promises. Before that, the vaunted GOP failed to actually make hay on their "Contract With America".

    Both parties have failed miserably - I don't expect the new "Heir Apparent" to be any different - especially with padding his 'cabinet' with the same tired old junkyard dogs from the Clinton Misadministration, basically going "Back to the Future" in typical DC insider style. We end up having the same problem as before - one pack of foxes is replaced with a different pack of foxes to look after the United Henhouse. S.O.S. as a buddy on another forum often says.

    Gonna be an interesting Next Four Years - as in the old Chinese Curse...

    Yep, and when michelle HUGGED the Queen....!! A total disregard of standard protocol. ALL administrations before this misguided one have had an entire staff to make sure the proper rules are followed, to NOT embarrass our nation. This misadministration at best fails miserably in this, and at worst simply doesn't care! They do what they want to do - no worries on who they offend.

    So I guess we have four years of this utter incompetency to contend with - by the end, no American will be able to hold their head up when overseas. Our pride will be in the toilet. :rolleyes:
