You are the one that is not so smart! Why don't you learn how to write and put spaces between your sentences and mind your own business. I didn't vote for Obama, but this is my country and I will stand by it. As Ann Landers would say MYOB!!

If they have to swear on a bible -- I'd prefer they used a dictionary, it has all the biblle words in it -- I'm surprised Obama is the first to use the Lincoln Bible.

You'd think that a Republican would have done it long ago. They're the ones who love to boast of being the "Party of Lincoln", who remains our greatest president to date, and there's nothing Lincolnesque about today's Republican party.

I have news for Obama...he ain't no Lincoln! What a slick Madison Ave. stunt!!!!!

He declared his candiacy in front of the Lincoln Memorial, he quoted Lincoln all throughout the campaign, and now he's going to put his dirty hands on the Lincoln Bible! What a sleazy stunt!

Everything about Obama is a fake! Everything!!!! It's all smoke and mirrors and a fabulous Hollywood team of produders, including Oprah.

Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting!

He's not Republican (as Lincoln was), he wasn't born in Illinois, his 'christianity' is suspect and he doesn't wear a cool beard or top hat. Technically, he should be sworn in on a pineapple whilst wearing a grass skirt. Mahalo and hang loose.

Swearing in on the Lincoln Bible should really make the Obama tell the truth.
Sometime in life, we need to learn to accept, and move on. Don't worry about it. You need to try to make a difference in some one 's life, prehaps, your family who needs you the most. Happy Holidays, and find out what you can do for your country instead of spreading negativity. Positve enegry starts with you. BTW, you have a right to your opinion

I agree completely. We should all write to our elected representatives insisting that a copy of the Constitution be used in the swearing in ceremonies for all elected officials. They can also use the Bible of their choice, but they should have to emphasize their understanding of their committment to honor, uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. This copy of the Constitution should then be signed and placed in a secure vault as a reminder of their most important obligation while in office.
Its stagecraft
