Politico reports that Obama’s second inaugural oath for the “most transparent administration in history” might be administered privately, without any media present...
...Obama hasn’t exactly followed through on his vow to run a more transparent administration. It’s about time the press finally started calling him out on it. Maybe now that he’s won reelection the media will actually do its job and report critically on his presidency. At the very least this is a sign he’s not going to get the kid-gloves treatment he had during the election season.Would you be surprised to learn Goodman's not the only nutcake making a thing out of this?
Andrew Malcolm, IBD: "So Obama, who promised once to have the most open administration in history, will take the presidential oath in private on Sunday, Jan. 20."
Michael Fletcher, Bearing Drift: "Conspiracy or not, it’s quite odd that the 'most transparent administration in history (TM)' doesn’t want the country to see the second term begin."
Rick Moran, American Thinker: "Maybe Obama wants it private because he wants to be sworn in using the Koran. Perhaps he's changed the oath, taking out 'faithfully' ('execute the office') and that last bit about preserving the Constitution... "
Dammit, Moran stole my joke! But thanks to my connections in the Administration I can at least show you the planned staging for the event:
It's just a rough; in the actual performance, Obama will trample the Constitution Gangnam Style. And if you really want to see it, of course, they'll be showing it later on BET.
