Most Transparent President In History To Hold Secret Inauguration

The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the president’s official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.

“Call me shell-shocked. I’m stunned that this is even an issue; it boggles the mind,” NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd told POLITICO. “This is not their oath, this is the constitutional oath. It’s not for them. It’s for the public, the citizens of the United Sates. It just boggles the mind — How is this even a debate?”

    Nothing to hide?

    He probably wants to break tradition and have a more diverse justice like his comrade Sotomayer do the duty, instead of that white male chief justice. Maybe to be more ecumenical he could use the Koran this time. Or change the wording to leave that Constitution reference out.

    • Richard T. Fowler says:

      You know … you just may be on to something with that Koran bit. Maybe that’s what he really wants to do!

    You thought he would be a normal constitution loving , freedom loving , righteous president ?

    When I first heard this, my thought was: the part about upholding the Constitution will be omitted. Something he has been doing from day 1. Might as well make it official.

  5. Pathway says:

    I’m pretty sure the oath will contain the words” obedience to the dear leader, Barack Obama.”

    Love it! What happened Pravda? Thought you were going to share in the power when you got Obama elected? This why you should study history more instead of watching all those repeats of ‘Friends’. When a power grab occurs the ones that got you in power are the first to go. Did the door just get slammed in your face Pravda?

    Because inauguration day falls on a Sunday in 2013, Chief Justice John Roberts will officially administer the official oath of office in a private ceremony that day. The public inauguration on the Capitol Building’s West Front — at which Roberts will administer a second, symbolic oath of office — will take place the next day.
    ??Official, then a Symbolic one? Obama did it twice in 2009 as well. I guess practice makes perfect? Or is one of them for the “Corporate United States”, and the other for the rabble?
