I believe that Obama is the legal president because 1 they did the swearing in twice 2 doesn't the president's term begin immediately at 12 noon when the previous president's term finishes?

I'm upset that we don't have a legal President (I'd thought that I've made that fairly clear by now). If anyone else, who actually returns the same common courtesy of answering simple questions, wants to discuss that, please let me know.

"On another note, did the WaPo breathlessly announce GWB's schedule every morning?

I personally like to know what my President is doing, unlike the Bush admin. that operated in secrecy.

So JakeD, are you upset that we finally have a PRESIDENT that is well liked by our citizens and the majority of the rest of the world?

Obama is not legally POTUS.

On another note, did the WaPo breathlessly announce GWB's schedule every morning?
