Is Obama Really President?

That’s what some Constitutional law scholars are asking, according to the Chronicle. When Obama took the oath of office, Supreme Court Justice John Roberts screwed up the words, dropping “faithfully” out of the mandated order in the text. Obama clearly realized his mistake, but gamely went along with it. According to Boston University scholar Jack Beermann, the new president may not actually be president until he repeats the oath word for word, in the correct order. And have you heard there’s something funny with Obama’s birth certificate?
