    Actually a flub by the Chief Justice. Obama used the same bible that Lincoln used at his inauguration.

    The flub was precipitated by Obama jumping the gun and starting to talk before the Chief Justice finished the first phrase he was supposed to repeat. If you listen carefully on the second phrase the Chief Justice got one word out of place and when he corrected it Obama didn't say it as corrected.

    The White House photo of the second swearing in does not show a Bible being used.
