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.

He needs two Bibles to convince us that he’s telling the truth. It won’t work. We know him well by now.

Who gives a flying flip? The Bible means no more to him than the Constitution. It is all for show.

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.

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.

Guess those two will be used for the public on that Monday, but he really takes the oath on the Sunday before that Monday. Bet that one will be on the Koran. Remember, he took the oath twice last time - Roberts screwed up the wording (was that on purpose?), so he took it again in private the next day with Roberts. Did he use the Koran that second time?

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.

It speaks volumes that he is more concerned with who might have owned a Bible than with its content.

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.

Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves.

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.”

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.

“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!
