Did You Get What Obama Said When He Was Sworn In As President



Barry Soetoro Takes The OAF Of Office

Both of them screwed up. Obama at first talking over the chief justice and then the chief justice screwing the words to the oath up.

.....................................................................................
Correct oath:

Each president recites the following oath, in accordance with Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

....................................................................................
Obama said, I barack hussein obama do solmenly swear, that I will execute, long pause, the office of president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

How stupid is this? The Justice can't remember 35 words and obama can't repeat 35 words.

Instead of saying, I will faithfully execute the office he said, that I will execute the office of the president of the United States faithfully.

In effect he is saying that he will destroy the office of the President of the United States!


He took an oath to destroy the office of the president. How crazy is this?

The actual formal act of taking this oath consists of the President raising their right arm to the square, following the lead of the officiator or Chief Justice of the United States who wears the formal ceremonial regalia, the President also usually extends and places their left hand on the Bible or other sacred object, and repeats the oath after the officiator as follows:

This mandatory oath is specifically delineated in the Constitution of the United States, Article II, Section 1, Clause 8. The words “so help me God” and the act of putting the hand on the Bible indicate a sacred witness of the action, thus sealing or making the nature of the oath binding under the witness of God Himself. Often the Bible is opened to a specific verse. Indeed, after taking this oath President Abraham Lincoln noted that his act was “registered in heaven.” The breaking of such an oath is considered an act of treason or high crime, the penalty of which is determined by a high court.

Here is a glaring question: If Obama didn't quote the oath correctly how could it ever be considered broken by him. It can't be broken if it never was taken. As far as I can tell Obama did not take the oath of office correctly. Instead of saying, I will faithfully execute the office, he said, that I will execute the office of the president of the United States faithfully. It would seem to me the word faithfully and where it was spoken is all important. Faithfully execute the office or execute the office faithfully?

Something so serious and important, like the US Presidential Oath of Office, should definitely be said exactly as it was intended. This is a serious oath. Not only the words should be said correctly, as our founding fathers intended, but should be said with respect and a serious nature. No fumbling, no laughing and no change in the word placement. Otherwise, it should have been said over, properly. That “fumbling” incident gave me a bad feeling. Not a good way to start off the very serious business of running our country!!

There are cases where changing the placement of an adverb changes the sense of the sentence. Like adjectives, adverbs are commonly misplaced in everyday speech, and may not cause listeners difficulty. However, such sentences are quite imprecise.

This is the key. The adverb faithfully needed to be precise to mean Obama would faithfully execute the office. I believe because this word was misquoted, in the future Obama could argue his oath was not binding nor could he be tried for treason or high crime.


In his 2009 inauguration, Barack Obama incorrectly repeated part of the oath as “execute the office of President of the United States faithfully” rather than “faithfully execute the office of President of the United States.” Chief Justice John G. Roberts recited the word "faithfully" out of order in the Oath of Office.

Is the oath Obama took binding if misquoted?

Crazy lawyers parse words in court like clinton did remember. It depends on what is, is. Obama could say it depends on what faithfully is. Faithfully execute an office? Faithfully execute the office?
