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.

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!"

clowncar on fire: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


I think it's kind of obvious. Black president has public ceremony on MLK day.

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.

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

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.

It will be so funny and sickeningly ironic if the far right actually tries to derp-off about this. The dual-inauguration is because this year the 20th is a Sunday and long ago Sunday was an automatic (and more or less required) day of rest. 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.

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.
