There was speculation that Obama and Roberts redid it as well.

yeah, they redid it today in a private ceremony in the white house.

Did Obama use his Koran this time?

You know the only reason he used the Lincoln Bible is that he did not have one of his own.

Anyone else see Biden take a jab at the chief justice yesterday? It was supposed to funny but was rather awkward and Obama didn't look to happy about it.

Obama taps him on the elbow as to say "Knock it off Joe"

I saw the video of that. Obama looked really irked for a second.

Obviously some legal gurus in the White House were very concerned that the oath was slightly flubbed. The chief even put his robe back on to do it again and they made it look as official as possible.

It is a shame in this day and time we have to do this kind of stuff just to keep lawsuits from happening.

I looked it up to see which other presidents had to retake the oath for the same reason -

Mr Obama is not the first president to have to take the oath twice.

Two other presidents, Calvin Coolidge and Chester Arthur, had to do it again because of similar problems.

Yeah, and that's the exact reason that they re-did it... some dumbass out there would say "hey, he's not really the president if he didn't say it exactly right..."

and sue the gov't.
