..........for a few minutes on January 20, 2009, Joe Biden was Vice President to President George W Bush.

Biden sworn in as Vice President shortly before noon at which time Cheney ceased being Vice President. 

George W Bush still President until after Obama had taken oath of office at noon.

Therefore, between these two oaths, Biden was Vice President to Bush.

You're wrong.

Both Biden and Obama terms started at noon. Time of oath (earlier for Biden, few minutes after noon for Obama) doesn't matter.

Until noon both Bush and Cheney still were POTUS and VPOTUS.

From 20th amendment:

Section 1. The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.

I'm suprised someone still believe these Urban Legends (like "Biden was vp for Bush for 5 minutes" or "Biden was President for 5 minutes").

Oh blah blah blah.

I defer to two of the greatest constitutional scholars in the history of this nation, not to mention two of the most self righteous individuals who have ever existed.

No, Kal and Grumpy.

What the hell did I do to you now? Quoting a constitution amendment text that proves you wrong. Oh, I'm so bad...

So much for "we're semi-friends now".

Kal, it's not so much what you say as how you sometimes say it.  Very self righteous and condescending.

That is what can be so annoying about you.

But, I'm still your friend, even if you don't want to be mine.  That's OK.
