Posts Tagged ‘Presidential Oath’

Along the campaign trail, when introducing Senator Joe Biden as his new running mate, Barack Obama slipped and almost declared the Senator from Delaware as the next Commander-in-Chief:

“Let me introduce to you the next President — the next Vice President of the United States of America, Joe Biden.”  http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2008/08/23/barack-america-and-president-biden-ooops/

When Senator Biden got on stage he upped the ante declaring Barack Obama to be, not just the next President, but the next Super Hero.”A man I’m proud to call my friend.  A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!”

Mr. Barack Hussein Obama had it right after all, as Joe Biden was the 44th President of the United States of America at noon on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009 and through January 21, 2009 until 7:35 pm, when Obama re-took the Oath of Office.

Article 2 of  The Constitution-if the President-elect shall have failed to qualify, or alternatively  if the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term, being 12:00 Noon which ability and/or qualification includes that he take the Article 2 Oath “before he enter on the execution of his office,” then either the Presidency shall devolve on the Vice President under Article 2 or the Vice President shall act as President under the 20th Amendment.  http://www.constitution.org/constit_.htm 

Vice President Joe Biden already took his Oath of Office before Obama completed his oath at approximately 12:05 PM.  To top it all off , we are well aware of the flub in reciting the Oath by Justice Roberts.  The misspeak was a huge flub which led some to question the authority of Obama’s Presidency from the first moments. 

As commentator Ted has pointed out, “This is significant because at such time that the Supreme Court finally rules on the merits on Obama’s disqualification as not being an Article 2 “natural born citizen” (clearly he is NOT), [emphasis is Ted’s] Biden’s automatic status (without needing to take a separate Presidential Oath) of being President would be predicated upon four different bases: First, having been Vice President under Article 2; second, having been Vice President-elect under the 20th Amendment; third, having been actual President in the hiatus before Obama took the ‘oath(s)’; and fourth, retroactively deemed President during the full period of the Obama usurpation so that the acts of the Federal Government under the usurpation can be deemed authorized and/or ratified by Biden’s legitimacy.”

Holy Batman, would Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi fill in as Vice President?  By law, I think Nancy Pelosi, but it would be a good cat fight.  Poor Joe Biden. 

All for naught.  Obama re-swore The Presidential Oath given by Justice Roberts a day later, and this time correctly- putting away any constitutional doubters.  They did this out of “ an abundance of caution.”

The only doubt remaining,  is Obama qualified under the the natural born citizen clause of The Constitution?  If Obama is not, Biden could be, on a technicality the 44th, 45th and 46th President, without even running a campaign. 

Hail to the Chiefs.

Close enough, but no cigar with regards to President Obama taking the Oath of Office as the 44th President.

The Constitution requires:  “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”   The Constitution requires that he is a natural born citizen as well, but the jury is still out on that one .

With less than five minutes into Obama’s Presidency, the first flub of the Constitution began with Chief Justice John Roberts saying the oath incorrectly.  Obama caught it and gave Roberts a moment to recover but still did not do it right.

The oath includes the phrase “That I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States” but Roberts didn’t say “faithfully” until after saying “president of the United States.”  http://www.nypost.com/seven/01202009/news/politics/roberts_flubs_swearing_in_oath_151047.htm

They are simple words and yet on this most historic of days, already our Constitution is thrown side for a statement that is close enough.  I thought close enough only counted in the game of horse-shoes.  

“I, Barack Hussein Obama,” totally jumped the gun and cut off Chief Justice Roberts before he had completed the line.  It didn’t help when he called Obama as “Senator”.   When the noon is passed, the President-elect automatically becomes President without taking oath.   Calling him Senator was only the first mistake.

See the video of the swearing in of Obama at- http://blog.coincidencetheories.com/?p=962 .  The text can be found at http://blogs.abcnews.com/theworldnewser/2009/01/the-inuagural-o.html  

In post news analysis, Fox News noted that Obama may have not completed the oath as required by the Constitution but more than likely, Justice Roberts would throw out any case against him.  I can’t wait to hear what Rush Limbaugh has to say since last weeks commentary, “”I’ve been listening to Barack Obama for a year-and-a-half. I know what his politics are. I know what his plans are, as he has stated them. I don’t want them to succeed,” he said. http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hxpMXOB6U__wIxx8Cub3uWAR6kPg 

Obama and Roberts are, after all, becoming close associates, only last week Obama got a tour of the Supreme Court in a closed session.  Lingering court cases regarding Obama’s citizenship have been shuffling around the Supreme Court for months.  All have been denied or denied without judgment, so far.   https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/01/14/obama-meets-with-supreme-court-justices/  I find it an insult to justice and pretty stinking crappy that a judge would meet behind closed door with a defendant in a lawsuit- even if that man would be Obama.

Wasting no time,  http://www.whitehouse.gov/ the White House’s main web page is all Obama.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents/georgewbush/ President George Bush has been relegated to the list of  previous presidents.  From the site, “The Bush family also includes two dogs, Barney and Miss Beazley, and a cat, Willie.”  Surely it must have pissed of President William Clinton, aka Slick Willie, to have had a cat named after him living in the White House.

The amusing footnote in history is noted, let’s  move on.

Since the Main Street Media is so stuck on the fact that a black man has been elected and sworn in at President, I thought I’d take a moment to remind readers that President Barack Hussein Obama, is half white.   Whatever his skin color, I pray he leads us toward safety and prosperity, preferably without our having to pay more taxes and redistributing what little bit of wealth we have left.

God Bless America
