Somehow thousands of people holding purple and blue tickets for the inauguration on Tuesday were swept into the Third Street tunnel and were not able to see President Obama take the oath of office. Now one of his organizers Gabe Cohen, from Denver, has put together a swearing-in do-over.
The word of the do-over was distributed through Facebook. On Saturday, those purple and blue ticket holders gathered at the front of the Capitol, having with them their Ipods and laptops to which they had downloaded President Obama taking the oath of office. They donned their earphones, readied themselves, and at high noon–altogether now–they waved their tickets in the air. President Obama had again been inaugurated.
Wait a minute: That makes three times that President Obama has been duly sworn. Does that mean he is to be our president for three terms? (Just asking…just asking…)

Dean – you’re being delibarately quite stupid. Giving the first interview of his presidency to Al Arabiya was actually quite a master stroke when you consider that Al Arabiya was created to be a direct competitor of Al Jazeera.
From wikipeadia entry on Al Arabiya:
So really Dean, abit more research and a bit more use of inteligence and logic would tell you that President Obama made a wise and strategic move in giving Al Arabiya an interview.
You can read the Time article which will give you a bit further insight at http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1874379,00.html?imw=Y
President Hussein’s first formal televised interview was with what network?? msn?? cbs?? nbc?? No, it was with Al-Arabiya!!! How predictable!! Dont stop praying America!!
Also Sister Buxton:
Is the third time the charm???
Does the third time make him more a president than the first time? There is still probably more people that hadn’t seen it. Does that mean he is going to have to go door to door???
Remenber this is to be a more open Presidency. (?)
