Once More, With Feeling

And with the right words. Obama was sworn in again:

because, as I mentioned earlier, technically he was not President when he and the Cheaps Justice botched the oath of office. The Constitution is quite clear on this:
ARTICLE II SECTION I

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—"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."

Obama just signed an order to close Guantanamo within a year. Yay! He has issued an order to the CIA telling them to stick to the Army Field Manual's interrogation techniques. Yay!

Obama is left-handed. How did I miss that?

Hilary told her assembled staff she wants them to "think outside the proverbial box" and that she wants to hear advice from all who wish to offer it. "We need to collaborate. We need to have a sense of openness and candor witrhin this building" she said. Yay!
