In a move that will disappoint several burgeoning conspiracy theorists, President Barack Obama, retook the oath of office today (on Jan 21, 2009).
This time around, both CJ Roberts and the President said it flawlessly standing inside the White House. However, this time around he (BHO) did not use a bible, so the extreme "conservatives" are going to be whining anyways.
But that is not a big deal, because according to the US Constitution, Obama became the president automatically at 12 noon on 20th January. So the oath is mainly a symbolic gesture.
I also found out that the phrase "so help me God" is nonobligatory!
