FirstNationalBastard: Taylor was religious, Polk was out the door, March 4th was on a Sunday, so technically, there was no President from Noon, March 4, 1849 to Noon March 5, 1849 when Taylor took the oath.


No. Technically, Taylor became president at the stroke of noon on the first day of his term, oath or no oath.

In the last inaugural, Obama was three or four minutes late because Yo-Yo Ma was totally shredding a cello solo and ran a bit long. For those few minutes we didn't have President Biden or Pelosi.

This time around, Obama apparently said the words a few minutes before his first term expired. In the words of the Constitution, Article II, Section 1, this is "cloſe enough for Rocke and Rolle."

You juuuuuuuuuust might get a Scalia* to listen to the argument that an unsworn president couldn't really do much with his presidency until he was sworn, the exact words being "Before he enter on the Execution of his Office..." But he is the president.

tl;dr: no.

* I don't mean "a Scalia" in the sense of a constitutional literalist, I mean "a Scalia" in the sense of a Supreme Court justice who was always willing to change his judicial philosophy around to screw Administrations of the opposite party.

dustman81: Coco LaFemme: If these inbred nitwits would read the Constitution, it says that the President's term begins on January 20th.  That is today.  If they waited until tomorrow to swear him in, we would technically not have a President for 24 hours.  So, they have the official swearing-in today to meet Constitutional requirements, and tomorrow is the ceremonial swearing-in at the Capitol and the address, and all the pomp and circumstance.

Also, Chief Justice Roberts better not fark up the oath this time like he did four years ago.  It's not that lengthy a spiel to memorize, sir.

Pretty much this. Reagan was sworn in for his second term on Sunday, January 20, 1985, with a ceremonial swearing in on the 21st.


If it was good enough for St. Ronaldus Magnus, it should be good enough for Fartbongo, right?

But...but... Fartb0ngo is a Kenyan muslin userper and he is not even qualified to be president. Sara Palin is automatically vice president and Zombie Reagan is king for life... or something

You know what is going to happen tomorrow? I got the dirt sheets.

Obama is going to be giving his speech, and he will mention that we are going to be entering a "New World Order". He is then going to rip off his suit and reveal a nWo shirt. Then, Kevin Nash is going to run in from the crowd and offer Biden a nWo shirt too. Just as Biden goes to accept it, Nash kicks Biden and gives Biden a Jackknife Powerbomb. Then, Chief Justice Roberts is going to pretend to be tending to Biden, and pretend to be about to help him up, but then he is going to kick him down and hit him with a steel chair, and rip off his robe and reveals a nWo shirt. Then, Romney and Ryan are going to interrupt and challenge Roberts and Obama to a matchup at Wrestlemania, with Joe Biden in their corner. And then Stone Cold's music is going to break and he will mention that he has in his legends contract a clause that says he can be the General Manager on this day only, and then says that the match will happen at Wrestlemania, only he will be the special guest referee, because "Stone Cold Said So ". Then he will come down and give Nash, Obama and Roberts a stunner and throw beers out to the crowd.

Oddly enough, the only ones who really seemed shocked by this revelation seemed to be the liberals who went full blown counter attack before an attack was even launched.

The satire seems predictably one-sided: safe to call off the war as the opposition never showed. Seriously though- I detect a hint of manufactured rage, but as usual the cons were not invited (or didn't care to show).

Or maybe after four years of the right screaming about everything from "secret messages" to mustard the left just doesn't give a shiat and views them as infinitely mockable go-tards.

When you act like a clown, people laugh at you. Do it long enough, and your mere mention will be enough to generate chuckles whether you're around or not.

DammitIForgotMyLogin: Lumpmoose: From the headline I assumed it's to avoid Roberts farking it up again but meeting an inauguration date requirement set in the Constitution is even more innocuous.

Obama should be impeached for daring to follow the rules set down in the Constitution.


That's why Romney should be President. He NEVER would've done that.

Big Pig Peaches was a biatcharacter in the Bloom County comic strip, in which a very girthy pig was an exercise instructor for Opus, and in one of the panels he did a series of "ear lifts" and then got very tired from the exertion.

God, if anyone from the year 3000 does a GIS for Obama Constitution while doing research...we're screwed.


See, I like that one. The ACCUSING finger. The GLARE.

It's not "I'm burning the Constitution, WEEEEE!"
It's "LOOK at this, you bastards, LOOK at it. I'm holding a BURNING farking CONSTITUTION here, and not a one of you is getting me some water to put it out with. ME, set it on fire? Do you see a lighter in my right hand, you moron? No, I'm POINTING at the FIRE that was going before I picked the thing up, and you all are just standing there agape."

Here's mine :)

I recall that President Johnson grabbed one of his dogs by the ears and hoisted him. Caused a bit of a kerfuffle.

That actually happened once, but I don't recall the specifics.


You are thinking of David Rice Atchison, because Taylor refused to take the oath on a Sunday.

I'm kind of a watch nerd. where can I buy a pentagram watch like that?

Satan's Gift Shop

I'm pretty sure they have a Groupon for it.


Holy crap, you can buy an exact full size replica of the Oval Office Resolute Desk.

I like this gift shop.

That's a bit harsh.

OTOH, if you were to describe the Farker who goes by that name as a "biatcharacter" I wouldn't bat an eye.

Humorlessness, prevailing sense of abandonment, martyr complex, and persecution fantasy.  You should run for Congress.

barneyfifesbullet: It's going to be fun watching lazy Obama get bored now that there is no campaign to work toward to anymore.


So you think he'll just sit back, do nothing, and keep cashing his government checks?
