More Obama (Last Until I Post a Podcast)

January 22, 2009

I am still working towards making my first podcast.  As it turns out I have some really good people that are going to help me.  First off before I even get the help, I just wanted to thank Nick Tann.  He is going to take some time and explain the ins and outs of the podcast.  It will be fun, he has a great Podcast that if you look up Nick Tann “Is this thing on?” on Itunes you will find his podcast, and I find it very good.  So hopefully you like it, he features independent music artists, and they are good.  Nick also has some very funny adverts that I find absolutely funny.  Anyhow enough about Nick for now.  I also am going to get some help from a local boy (well local now).  Luke Nugent from a radio station http://www.kicx917.com/ is going to help me put together some stuff.  I got to know Luke through the daily call ins to the radio station, I can be heard some mornings as I always have something to say.  But no worries, you will get to hear my voice soon enough on Podcast.  I will take a funny look at some news, and other things that I find funny.  And to cap it off, I will be going over my favorite music of the week.  And hopefully (with permission) feature some music from some of the independents that Nick does, I’ve been quite impressed.

Okay so now onto my Obama news.  Turns out the Chief Justice flubbed the Oath of Office, and really they couldn’t let that stand, so they re-did it yesterday.  I will post what is on CNN.

The Constitution sets out the language that should be used in the oath: “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.”

Roberts moved the word “faithfully” back nine spots, and used “to” instead of “of.” That threw the president off base, and he smiled and paused to collect his thoughts, then decided to follow Roberts’ lead.

But the chief justice at the same time attempted to correct himself.

Here’s how Tuesday’s oath went:

Roberts: … that I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully …

Obama: … that I will execute …

Roberts: … the off — faithfully the pres — the office of president of the United States …

Obama (at the same time): … the office of president of the United States faithfully …

The two got the rest correct, including the nonobligatory “So help you God?” “So help me God.”

So was Obama really President?  Was it done on purpose? Who knows in any case, America it seems can’t do anything right.  Hopefully Obama can.
