The credulous public didn't hear the REAL performance by Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman at Barack Obama's inauguration. It heard a two-day old recording. Along with that fake oath.

What's with this Hussein Obama, and his hope sham?

The inaugural is giving right-wing-fringe Obama-haters plenty of yarn with which to weave their conspiracy theories.

Just consider all the action that happened off camera, despite all the recent talk of a new transparency in Washington. The real oath was not on stage but at the White House, administered by the chief justice and witnessed only by Obama insiders and the liberal media ultra-elite. God wasn't even there.

And that beautiful, multicultural concert by Ma and Perlman — it was heard only by a select few. Along with Gabriela Montero and Anthony McGill, the musicians did indeed play at the inaugural, they say. But TV and most in-person viewers heard a recording, because the quarter was worried about wind. Members wore earpieces and tried to match their recording "tone for tone."

Reports the Times:

The conditions raised the possibility of broken piano strings, cracked instruments and wacky intonation minutes before the president’s swearing in (which had problems of its own). “Truly, weather just made it impossible,” Carole Florman, a spokeswoman for the [Democrat-dominated totally in the tank!] Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, said on Thursday. “No one’s trying to fool anybody. This isn’t a matter of Milli Vanilli."

And with that quote, the story landed on A1.
