So does that mean that everything up to the oath, such as executive orders, have to be reissued?

So he took the right oath today? I give him a day or two before he breaks it, if he hasn’t already.

And the media blames CJ John Roberts.

You would think that as bad as The Messiah wanted to rule the world that he would have memorized not only HIS PART but also the part of Roberts.

msnbc.com staff and news service reports
updated 2 minutes ago
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama retook the oath of office at the White House on Wednesday after a blunder during Tuesday’s inauguration.

Chief Justice John Roberts stumbled slightly over the 35-word constitutionally prescribed oath of office as he swore in Obama as the 44th president. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28780417/

This guy does have a charmed life doesn’t he. He got by in life via affirmative action and shady friends. He gets elected because of white guilt and sheer stupidity of the electorate and now a re-do on the Presidental Oath.

Mark my words.

The MSM history creators will continue to blame this flubbing of the oath on Republican nominated Chief Justice Roberts, until it is 100% blamed on him, and Obambi was just the victim.

You be the judge:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=274_VdeckAU

Obama jumped in too fast on the first line at :40. Then Roberts put “faithfully” in wrong spot starting at :47. Then Obama mumbles “And will to...best” at 1:00 instead of “And will to THE best”.

Picky, sure, but since Obamas flubbing of the oath is only being blamed on Roberts by the MSM and DUmmies, I thought actually listening to it and deciding for ourselves might be a better idea.

Why couldn’t they just write out the oath and have Obama sign it?

Pop Quiz: When will Obama release his Harvard and Columbia grades to the press so we can see how smart he is compared to previous presidents?

So far, Obama is the only president not to release his grades or how he funded his education.

I feel sorry for Judge Roberts. It seemed Obama threw him off when he repeated too soon. Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone makes a mistake in front of millions.

Bonehead move by the Chief Justice not to have notes for the swearing in ceremony. Screwed up an important tradition for our country.

HA! There it is already. Obama didn't mess up the oath you see, it was Chief Justice Roberts who screwed things up.

Maybe Roberts, as CJ of SCOTUS, knew just a little bit more about the man standing before him than the rest of us do.

Roberts fault

Actually, if the transcript on the MSNBC site is correct, it appears it was the fault of CJ Roberts. I imagine they were both a bit nervous - first time for both.

Geez....never thought I'd be defending Present (show us your ID) Obama.

What would happen if Judge Roberts had refused to administer the Oath. I mean, besides the riots. What would happen next?

Wish I knew some loser that went to the inauguration so I could tell them they wasted all that money and sat out in the cold and didn’t see the real swearing in.

that’s exactly what I thought, Barry Soetoro caught Justice Roberts off guard by speaking during his sentence.

These contitutional lawyers if that is really what happen are something else. They get a re-do on the oath; but not anything on eligibilty.

These guys are lying right through their teeth. I wonder what the real reason for the re-do is and why they chose to not care about what seems to be their speciality, the eligibility.

Are they going to pull these things without our knowing?

As Sen. Diane Feinstein says, he took the Presidential Oaf of Office. She probably doesn’t realize how right-on she was.

He was a Constitutional “scholar.” Shouldn’t he have noticed Roberts’ mistake? He touted his teaching experience at U of Chicago constantly the last few years.
