Great letter joyful!

yeah, really!

I've heard the oath administered enough times that as soon as I heard the out of place "faithfullly' i went "whaaaa"?

What?

Is this in response to taking the oath again? Legally he had to, the justice didn't say it correctly...



According to the legal expert on NPR today, only two other presidents have had to do the oath twice...
One was because he had his father swear him in and he wasn't sure if it needed to be a federal justice so he did it again.

They said that Obama had to do it again just for precautionary reasons.
