The pageantry of the Inaugural process, the orderly transition of power in our American Republic, is under way, and fully on display on an international stage. As the clock approaches the strike of noon, Chief Justice John Roberts, using the Bible of Abraham Lincoln, will administer the Oath of Office to the nation’s 44th President, Barack Hussein Obama II. With the road that lies ahead of him, the new President will almost assuredly invoke the same blessing the Almighty God that George Washington did as he nervously took the same Oath more than two centuries ago.
Party politics aside, this day, regardless of who would have won that November 4th election, is one of great pride in our nation, in our Armed forces, in our youth and in our senior citizens, and it is meant to be the display of the great Republic that our forefathers had envisioned. Last Spring, as President Bush hosted the Pope at the White House, we took personal note that there are not enough public displays of our national patriotism, not enough exposure of our Marine Corp Band, along with all of the national symbols of our greatness. So it is important to take into account what the day itself is representing. This is the celebration of our ability to disagree, to challenge, to have differing views, and yet strive for similar or common goals.
At the exact moment that the Chief Justice completes the administration of the Oath of Office, our Nation will not only begin a new era under a new President, we will begin what may be one of the greatest Constitutional crisis of our Nation’s history. It has been said that part of in President’s Inaugural address will be focused on our personal responsibility for our future. In that light, it is ironic that personal responsibility will be at the forefront of the Constitutional crisis that Barack Obama will be fully embroiled in as a result of his lack of responsibility in being forthright with his personal records that could have ended any question of his eligibility to be the President of the United States.
It has been said by a commenter on this site that he does not want Obama to be ineligible for the Office, he just wants to know that he IS eligible for the Office. Our Nation is at a pivotal point economically, globally, and morally, and as such, we must face the future with the knowledge that we are doing so in the true words and spirit of the values that Washington, Jefferson, Adams and other great patriots set forth in the Constitution and in their writings. The person that represents America must represent the values instilled in the Constitution that he affirms to preserve and defend.
So, as the struggle to minimize the damages that our looming Constitutional Crisis may bring forth, all Americans must invoke the same humbling words of President Washington “so help us God!”.
