President Obama has to retake oath after botching it in front of millions.

Because the US Constitution is specific with the exact words that must be used in the Presidential Oath of Office, President Barack Hussein Obama had to retake the oath in the White House.

From World Net Daily:

According to a Fox News report, Roberts went to the White House late today and administered the oath, correctly, to Obama. Also present were a pool reporter and a White House photographer.

The Associated Press reports, "The president said he did not have his Bible with him [for the second oath], but that the oath was binding anyway."

Josh White of the Washington Post said the oath of office is required of a new president "before he can execute his power."

And he noted, "the Constitution is clear that its 35 words must be spoken exactly."
