Justice Robert was a big disappointment on ObamaCare and Justice Scalia’s comments on the Second Amendment are unbelievable.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia outraged conservatives with his remarks on gun control and the Second Amendment this morning in a Fox News interview with Chris Wallace.

Scalia stated that the court may issue gun control rulings in the future due to “precedent” indicating that within the context of the 18th century the Framers of the Constitution allowed for local restrictions on guns and bans on certain types of weapons.

Conservatives immediately cried foul.

In the comment section of the story as reported by The Blaze, conservative reaction to Scalia’s remarks ranged from stunned to outraged.

I think the lifetime tenure of U.S. Supreme Court Justices should really be examined by the Congress and the states. I realize there would need to be a Constitutional Amendment, but it is sorely needed.

Justices serving for life become isolated and are not held accountable to the voters from which their power is derived.

The Obama Oath MULLIGAN – Obama Retakes The Oath “Out of an Abundance of Caution”

Posted Posted in Barack Obama, John Roberts

Well, the Flubbed Oath FLAP has been rectified.

In golf, they call it a mulligan. A do-over.

There’s no formal name for what President Obama and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. did last night.

After flubbing his one role on Inauguration Day — administering the oath of office to Obama — Roberts traveled to the White House to re-administer the oath.

Just to make sure.

“We decided it was so much fun . . .,” Obama joked while sitting on a couch in the Map Room. Obama stood and walked over to make small talk with pool reporters as Roberts donned his black robe.

“Are you ready to take the oath?” Roberts asked.

“I am, and we’re going to do it very slowly,” Obama replied.

After a flawless recitation that included no Bible and took 25 seconds, Roberts smiled and said, “Congratulations, again.”

Obama said, “Thank you, sir,” and then added: “All right. The bad news for the [reporters] is there’s 12 more balls.”

One FLAP solved.

Now, Mr. President when will you make your state of Hawaii official birth certiciate available?

Shocking: VP Joe Biden Starts to Measure Oval Office Drapes and Then Barack Obama Retakes Oath of Office

Barack Obama’s botched Oath of Office

Due to the FLAP of Barack Obama’s botched Presidential Oath of Office, Obama has retaken the Oath.

Chief Justice John Roberts has administered the presidential oath of office to Barack Obama for a second time just to be on the safe side.

The unusual step came after Roberts flubbed the oath a bit on Tuesday, causing Obama to repeat the wording differently than as prescribed in the Constitution.

White House counsel Greg Craig said Obama took the oath from Roberts again out of an “abundance of caution.”

The chief justice and the president handled the matter privately in the Map Room on Wednesday night.

Well, after Chris Wallace of Fox News in the video above said that Obama was maybe not President. But, really this is over-kill.

Then, there is the issue of Vice President Joe Biden.

Obama Says Chief Justice John Roberts Not to Blame for Flubbed Oath of Office

Barack Obama’s botched Oath of Office

President Barack Obama says it is not Chief Justice John Robert’s fault.

President Obama isn’t blaming Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts for slipping up as he recited the president oath of office during Tuesday’s inauguration ceremony.

Obama said Roberts actually helped him as he gave the oath, and that he was grateful.

“We’re up there, we’ve got a lot of stuff on our mind, and he actually helped me out on a couple of stanzas there,” Obama told ABC News backstage at the “Neighborhood Ball.”

“So overall, I think it went relatively smoothly and I’m very grateful to him.”

Various media and blogs have blamed either Roberts or Obama for the flub. Transcripts suggest that Obama broke in earlier than Roberts expected in repeating the oath, and that this may have thrown the chief justice off. He then put the word “faithfully” at the end of the phrase “I will execute the office of the United States” instead of at the front of that phrase.

Yeah, it makes no difference unless you are saying the oath should be administered again and Obama is NOT President.

Good grief…..

Next time, the Chief Justice and President-Elect should have a cheat sheet.

Who Stumbled on Presidential Oath: Obama or Roberts?

Barack Obama takes the Presidential oath of office as administered by Chief Justice John Roberts

Flap was mentioning to the wife that he would not be surprised if Barack Obama stumbled on his oath of office after Joe Biden stumbled on his. And, there you go.

But, having taken the oath a number of times myself, I can tell you the nerves and adrenaline are racing hard through your body and a diligent staff usually have a cheat sheet posted somewhere to help the office holder. But, alas, this is hard to do here.

However, note there was a different spin on who flubbed the moment.

Note: Fox’s headline now heads: Roberts, Obama Stumble On Oath.

But, really who cares?
