President Obama is putting a symbolic twist on a time-honored tradition, taking the oath of office for his second term with his hand placed not on a single Bible, but two -- one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and one by Abraham Lincoln.

Will they cancel each other out somehow?
There’ll be a Koran sandwiched between them.
And will he drop out the “. . . and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”?
When barry touches the Bibles will it leave blisters on his skin.
And this time, no sand statue?
He needs two Bibles to convince us that he’s telling the truth. It won’t work. We know him well by now.
What? Did he misplace his mother’s Bible from the little red church?
Who gives a flying flip? The Bible means no more to him than the Constitution. It is all for show.
Anyone know whatever happened to that koran that Saddam Hussein had penned in his own blood?
Barry is afraid that if he touches a Bible, it will burst into flames. He needs a backup, just in case...
When will they start building the giant statue of Obama next to the great saint Lincoln ?
Obama is a narcissistic idiot and proud of it.
Why not just use his Koran with a fake Bible cover?
What a pandering egotistical narcissistic moron.
I vaguely remember an episode of an old western (maybe Big Valley?) with a court scene. The Chinese witness offered to swear on a stack of Bibles. The attorney, knowing the witness was a Buddhist, offered to let him swear on, IIRC, a dead chicken or some such thing. I wonder if this show by BO is along the same lines? IE, doesn’t matter how many Bibles he uses if he does not believe in the power of the one true God.
Martin Luther King, Jr. would be appalled at what Obama’s policies and rhetoric has done to race relations in this country and the black community in general (unemployment rates, crime rates, etc...). Obama is obviously unaware of the teachings of that great man to think that he is somehow worthy to connect himself symbolically to Dr. King in any way.
I can’t believe that Dr. King’s family supports this.
nobama should be fingerprinted and jailed...not sworn-in.
Maybe he should stop using the Bible as a coaster and open it...
Ya think his conscience has been dulled just a little?
You can bet that he will force Chief Turncoat Roberts to swear him in a second time with “THE HOLY BIBLE” noticeably absent and probably “THE SATANIC KORAN” under his right hand!
Agree, SkyDancer - probably doesn’t have a real bible of his own anyway. He could swear on all the bibles in the world and it doesn’t mean JACK. Interesting that he would swear on the bibles of two Republicans. He probably thinks they both belonged to the jackass party.
You assume he had one to begin with! ;-)
Both men were assassinated.
SOB still thinks hes a historical republican figure.
Also, remember he has stopped the national day of prayer but celebrates Ramadan in the White House. And, he says the call to prayer for Muslims is the sweetest sound on earth.
I am a woman and don't have much physical strength at my advanced age - some burly guy needs to remove him from the White House and drop him in Mecca where he will be happy listening to the call to prayer every day. Don't they do that twice a day? Sorry, not up on Muslim call to prayer and not going to look it up.
Actually, it will be two Ko-tex’s with Bible covers over them.
Stalin attended seminary in his youth. He should have gone for the trifecta.
I guess he needs to borrow someone else’s since he doesn’t have one himself.
Why in the world does he do 2 swearing ins? HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND WHY?
Whose koran is the son-of-a-b**** going to use?
It speaks volumes that he is more concerned with who might have owned a Bible than with its content.
Good catch. That is what both the owners of those Bibles have in common.
Because 2 Bibles will remove any doubt of Dear Leader’s Christianity and devotion to Christ. At least, that’s what Obamao hopes you’ll believe.
Bibles from 2 Republicans - one who persevered through a war that was dividing a nation based on economics and resulted in freeing the slaves and the other who marched at risk to himself (no secret service) and asked that people be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.
Just how does Barack Hussein Obama, of questionable citizenship and distributor of working people’s money to the non-working (frequently of color)voting base and political cronies, identify with these two men?
Oh, I know, because they are revered and that’s what he thinks of himself.
Not enough Bibles. Need many many many more.
Probably thinks that two will give him more power like in a video game.
No there has to be another reason.
Martin Luther King dreamed of the day that all of God's children could sing, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
Barack Obama says his people should not be left to "fend for themselves," ie., live as responsible, self-sufficient, free citizens and would rather they be housed, clothed, fed and cared for on government plantations (and provided with "free" ObamaPhones).
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition, Matthew 7:22/23
Is he going to stick one of them in his *ss?
If so, he’ll have to move the Constitution out of the way.
Ripped the innards outa one and put in a koran?
Barack, I’ve read about Abe Lincoln.
I know a lot about Abe Lincoln.
Abe Lincoln is actually a distant cousin of mine.
Barack Obama, you’re no Abe Lincoln!
I think Mohamed, the grand poobah, for the monkey god of the Koran will be very upset if he doesn’t swear faith on the Koran .... might even cut his virgin count down to 10 sheep from 72.
They screwball left if trying to paint this whackadoodle usurper as the “Next Lincoln” because if there is another “civil war” they hope to really paint him as the “Next Lincoln” when he crushes the red states....
“President Obama is putting a symbolic twist on a time-honored tradition, taking the oath of office for his second term with his hand placed not on a single Bible, but two — one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and one by Abraham Lincoln.”
What—he misplaced his copy of the one written by Mephistopheles?
That is so true and I do not understand it. Why GOP figures...especially Lincoln. He is a rat...why not FDR or Kennedy? He should know that in republican eyes he will NEVER be anything close...heck many don’t even consider him an American. I dread the monuments the left will try to erect of him one day....can you just imagine!
In case one bursts into flames when he touches it?
