SUMPAH LAGI - Out of an Abundance of Caution

Yessir! This "sumpah" must be taken VERY seriously, unlike some Malaysian!

Obama took serious concern and counsel and did it again!

"... Obama retook the oath before a handful of aides in the White House Map Room, 31 hours after he spoke the words before more than a million people arrayed on the Mall. In the first go-around, Chief Justice John Roberts botched the wording, deviating from the language in the Constitution. Following along, Obama repeated the mistake.

"Out of an abundance of caution," White House Counsel Greg Craig said in a statement, Obama decided to retake the oath Wednesday. Roberts again presided. ..."

How serious was he when he chuckled in the middle of the the oath saying when the Chief Justice mixed up his words?

He was real serious but couldn't help chuckling when the chief justice couldn't remember 37 words in their right order and couldn't say "faithful" in the true sense.

Joke is the republican still want to embarrass Obama.

The neocons lied on the Iraq war, arrested innocents, so-called war combatants and crashed the global economy. What else won't they do? :))

I don't understand, why can't they read it from the screen or a piece of paper?

The CJ was reading from a pieve of paper bt being a Bushman he has problems with the word Faithful. Most man have difficulty with that word.

No, lah!

The poor fella Roberts probably overslept. He must have been in such a hurry he couldn't remember anything else! Doubt he had breakfast. How do you make anyone swear on an empty stomache and in that cold?

Under any circumstances, Najib could give you a perfect oath! :))

Obama already signed the executive order to close Guantanamo Bay. How come no one is cheering him for this action? How come people are quick to criticize but very slow or reluctant to give credit?
Where's all the human rights group? Stand up and support Obama.
