Does this mean Donald Trump is automatically President and Nancy Pelosi is relegated to Walmart Greeter?

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.

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.

I'm afraid to go on Facebook to see what my idiot relatives have already posted about the "Secret Inauguration"

Which, by now, thanks to the magic of FW:FW;RE;FW and "telephone" is most certainly the "Secret Inagguration where Fartbongo got down on one knee and, his hand on a Koran held by the president of China, used that there African clicking language to swear eternal fealty to Muslin Socialisticism and promised to use his mind control ray to make Real Muricans think the American flag is a 'Magic Eye' poster close-up of the Ayatollah's butthole!"

Jesus wouldn't have made the 20th the inauguration day unless that was when he wanted to ceremony to be held.

They covered this on NPR the other day. He memorized the whole thing and all the planned pauses, the problem was that nobody ever got the plan from Roberts to Obama's team so Obama was unaware of the specific points where Roberts planned to stop for a response. Obama wound up responding earlier than Roberts expected which caused him to flub the next line. Obama knew the line was wrong so he paused in confusion which just messed things up even worse.

They also pointed out that it's been messed up far worse by others in the past.

What secret ceremony? It was just on C-SPAN live 15 minutes ago. Simple- it was all repeat after me and congratulations Mr. President. Done. Headline fail. Not sure why party day is tomorrow for all this, but whatever.

Wasn't there a Freeper "Constitutional Scholar" who had it all figured out, that Roberts' oath-mangling was a last-ditch effort that actually made Obama's election null and void, and we've secretly had President Dick Cheney since 2009?

You don't actually expect the "strict constitutionalists" in the derp brigade to actually know what the constitution says do you?

Seriously; I have never seen people who scream so much about the U.S. Constitution being violated, yet seem to have no idea how the government actually functions as described in the U.S. Constituion. Then they build elaborate yet realistically impossible conspiracy theories around that ignorance of the U.S. Constuitution, living in fear of their government for no reason.

How dare they have a dignified, low key ceremony in these troubled economic times? Don't they realize that they're literally taking food out of the mouths of fox news contributors who would otherwise be on TV decrying all the taxpayer money being spent on security to protect Obongo from fox news' more rabid viewers?

I think he's president oath or no oath, as strictly speaking he hasn't been released from his 2009 oath. You're probably right about the reason they do this, though, I guess. Looks cleaner on paper.

You've read the Constitution, right?  The President's term begins at noon on January 20th.  Inaugurations are not held on Sundays, so he was officially sworn in today and will be ceremonially sworn in again tomorrow, where he'll also give his inaugural address.  That's just how we do things.  It's not a big secret.

Yes, I have read the Constitution, and the 20th amendment, as it would seem that you have, too. My points were simply that there was no secret ceremony, as it was broadcast live from the Blue Room of the White House with Chief Justice Roberts administrating the oath; everybody knew this. Secondly, BFD that today is Sunday, why can't we have parades and the public swearing-in stuff, etc., today? So what that it is Sunday? My readings of the Constitution doesn't make any mention of Sunday in relationship to the oath-taking or inauguration, just reads the 20th of Jan. That was done. The law was carried out duly and on schedule. All is well with the Republic. I don't know any constitutional laws in regards to my comment about why have the big ceremony tomorrow as you imply in your snark about my reading the Constitution. So what that in the past, the big ceremony stuff wasn't conducted on a Sunday (and yes, I know the historical reasons)? It would seem to me that whatever day is the 20th of January is a good enough day for a party.
Also, there was no secret ceremony.

I'm kinda shocked we haven't heard about a True Patriots' "Inauguration" where Chief Justice Orly Taintz swears in Rand Paul and Sheriff Joe as the "real" Prez and VP
 
2013-01-20 01:19:59 PM  

simplicimus: fugeeface: Coco LaFemme: fugeeface: What secret ceremony? It was just on C-SPAN live 15 minutes ago. Simple- it was all repeat after me and congratulations Mr. President. Done. Headline fail. Not sure why party day is tomorrow for all this, but whatever.

You've read the Constitution, right?  The President's term begins at noon on January 20th.  Inaugurations are not held on Sundays, so he was officially sworn in today and will be ceremonially sworn in again tomorrow, where he'll also give his inaugural address.  That's just how we do things.  It's not a big secret.

Yes, I have read the Constitution, and the 20th amendment, as it would seem that you have, too. My points were simply that there was no secret ceremony, as it was broadcast live from the Blue Room of the White House with Chief Justice Roberts administrating the oath; everybody knew this. Secondly, BFD that today is Sunday, why can't we have parades and the public swearing-in stuff, etc., today? So what that it is Sunday? My readings of the Constitution doesn't make any mention of Sunday in relationship to the oath-taking or inauguration, just reads the 20th of Jan. That was done. The law was carried out duly and on schedule. All is well with the Republic. I don't know any constitutional laws in regards to my comment about why have the big ceremony tomorrow as you imply in your snark about my reading the Constitution. So what that in the past, the big ceremony stuff wasn't conducted on a Sunday (and yes, I know the historical reasons)? It would seem to me that whatever day is the 20th of January is a good enough day for a party.
Also, there was no secret ceremony.

Don't they realize that they're literally taking food out of the mouths of fox news contributors who would otherwise be on TV decrying all the taxpayer money being spent on security to protect Obongo from fox news' more rabid viewers?


Don't worry, the public ceremony is on a holiday so all those government employees will be getting double time.

Mrtraveler01: Oh, what it would be like to be a fly on the wall of Mitt Romney's home right now.


I'm guessing Romney is barely aware that the Inauguration is happening. For that matter, I doubt he's given much thought to the election, Obama, the campaign, or anything else political since it happened, except to be glad it's over with. All that fly would see is Romney doing Sudoku and maybe taking the car for a spin in the car elevator.

Remember, this is a guy whose campaign canceled the staff credit cards within minutes of his concession speech, leaving a few poor Young Republicans to pay for their own cab rides home. I'm not saying he didn't want to be elected President, but he sure as hell didn't want to have to try to be elected President, and I doubt he's troubled his beautiful mind with it ever since.

Why he's not worried about the US capitulating to the Comintern and using its last dollar to fund the Palestinian nuclear weapons program, like he implied would happen if Obama were re-elected, is left as an exercise for the alert Farker.

While the early morning temperature will be in the 20s, the forecast calls for a high temperature in the upper 30s or low 40s. Still, organizers cautioned attendees to bundle up because of prolonged exposure to the cold as they watch the events and make their way to and from them.

Mrtraveler01: Oh, what it would be like to be a fly on the wall of Mitt Romney's home right now.


Thanksgiving, 2012. The family comes over to Mitt's house and encounter only the chauffeur, who doesn't know where Mitt
and Ann are. The reality is that Mitt has been locked in his study for days, nursing the same glass of scotch, looking
out the window. Occasionally tears roll down his face, but that's only when his imaginary world of not being president
comes to the forefront.

Ann is in one of the guest bedrooms, popping pills like they're Mentos. The weird smell is from the walk-in closet
which has been used as the bathroom since November 10th. The real bathroom is right next to it, but Ann is too strung out
to realize or care.

The family downstairs figures this out when they hear Mitt screaming for his Secretary of Defense (before weeping)
and Ann talking about her failed life and dreams. Then one of their sons (Zip, Bang, or Whizzo) tells the kids
to go outside to play, hurriedly runs to Boston Market, and salvages something out of the holiday.

The family leaves when they realize Mitt and Ann aren't coming down for quite a while yet.

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 the full celebration had been held today, it would have been the first time.

There have been many Inauguration Days that fell on Sunday, and they have always been treated the same.

The right-wing derp would have been defeaning if our first muslin President had the whole shindig on the day of the One True Lord.

The MLK holiday is a coincidence...unless Obama went back in time to manipulate when MLK day was to be celebrated and what day the inauguration was to be held.

Yep.

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.

It will be so funny and sickeningly ironic if the far right actually tries to derp-off about this.

Since the old timey days, when it fell on a Sunday, They would do a private, quiet, solo, quicky and then a big, loud, public one the following day Anyways, if they get pissy because Obama is observing the day of rest, I'm gonna laugh my ass off... for so many reasons.

olddeegee: On Monday he'll become the first President to take the oath four times since FDR. Is this what some Republican soothsayer foresaw but got the dates wrong?


Republican soothsayers are not intelligent or talented enough at what they do to even report predict the past. What evidence has there ever been that a party member can see the future? =P

Liberals really don't think that conservatives are outraged about this...yet. They're just making fun of how outraged Conservatives get when Obama does the most trivial things (Arugula, Dijon Mustard, etc.).

But I guess it's fun to play victim, so I won't ruin your fun.

And instead, try to turn his teleprompter lines of the day into campaigns for his fans. Like this gun control thing, and the NRA is more popular than Obama is anyway.


Oh gosh that's funny. That's really funny. Do you write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. "Teleprompter" I've never heard anyone make that joke before. Mmm. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference, um reference that outside the 2008 campaign before. Because that's what politicians use when they make speeches, right? A teleprompter. And yet you've taken that, and used it out of context, to insult Obama in this new situation. Gosh, what a clever, smart Farker you must be, to come up with a joke like that by your self. Mmm. That's so fresh, too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at us while we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity? Because we're right here. God you're so funny!

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?

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.

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.

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