They might also want to bring up the fact that Obama didn't use a Bible when he was sworn in the second time.

What do you mean second time? And what did he use, a Koran?

Didn't you hear?  He had to retake his oath because both he and the guy who read it to him botched it so badly...So much for his supposed status as a gifted orator.

Oh yeah, and when he took it the second time, they didn't have a bible handy.

Without his cue-cards he's a total imbecile, that's already been exposed time and again. This guy is about as clueless as they come, unfortunately, most of the voting age public is even more clueless than he is.

The White House has been seized illegally and even if they prove that in this lawsuit they're not gonna do a thing about it for fear of a civil war.


That's OK, I give him about 18 months before he really screws things up even more than they are and the country implodes.


Then we'll really get the change that we need.

If anyone really thinks Obama will be ousted by what will be considered by the modern political base of public educated morans a MERE technicality, your dummer then a bag of hammers.

There is no constitutional requirement to have a bible.  At the first inaugural it was decided (whether by the planners or by president elect Washington depends on the source) to have one, and a Masonic bible was used.  That same bible has been used at several presidential inaugurations.  George Washington added the words "so help me God", which are not part of the constitutionally mandated oath, and most presidents have followed that tradition.  Washington also kissed the bible after taking the oath, and that is reported to be a popular tradition to follow also, but Franklin Pierce and Dwight Eisenhower did not.   I'm not sure what the most recent presidents have done.

The web site Inaugurals of Presidents of the United States: Some Precedents and Notable Events reports that Theodore Roosevelt was sworn into office, after the assassination of William McKinley, without a bible, but only raised his arm.  I'm presuming that was because no bible was available at the time the oath was administered, which was the reason a bible wasn't used when President Obama took the oath the second time.  Again, there is no constitutional requirement to use a bible.
 
The above cited web source says that President Roosevelt was the only president not sworn into office with a bible, but Catholic News Service reports Records kept by the Architect of the Capitol suggest only one president in the 216 years since Washington was inaugurated did not take the oath of office with one hand on a Bible. Franklin Pierce, the 14th president, "affirmed"-- but did not "swear" -- his oath with one hand on a law book, instead of a Bible. Some historical records say Pierce did so because of a crisis of faith after his only remaining child, an 11-year-old boy, was killed in a train accident a few weeks before the inauguration.
The discrepancy between the two reports may be that the later is referring to official inaugurations following an election, while the first T. Roosevelt swearing in was the case of a Vice-President ascending to the office following the death of a president.

Indeed, there is no requirement to use a Bible. Sometimes a law book has been used. L.B. Johnson was sworn in with JFK's pre-Vatican II Roman Missal inside Air Force One after the assassination.
