Extra Extra That didn't take long: Chris Wallace on Fox News says the flubbed oath of office means Obama is not really president! Some are calling for Obama to retake the oath. Others call it Roberts's version of a "wardrobe malfunction," while some just think the fuss is unnecessary.

You be the judge:

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.

President Obama was re-administered the oath of office on Wednesday evening by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. ...

Mr. Obama and Mr. Roberts stood in the Map Room of the White House at 7:35 p.m. and recited the oath before a small group of advisers and a handful of reporters.

This could be a weird kind of omen as to Obama’s eligibility. I have always said that if someone has eyes on the presidency, and there’s a wee little problem of not being a citizen, how does he accomplish the task? Simple. He pens a fraudulent autobiography whose facts about his birth and father are NEVER questioned. He wrote it, so it’s true. You get the narrative out by selling millions of those books, and suddenly you’re a player on the national political scene. Throw in George Soros’ $$$$ and it’s yours. Mission Accomplished.

Not at all picky. We should insist that Obama be held to the kind of standard that was applied to Bush. He must NEVER mis-speak without rousing ridicule. Remember how W was treated? Sarah?

What's funny is how the Obama spin machine is blaming Roberts. They have a lot of time on their hands since the election. You even find some surrogates here on FR playing that role. Thinkprogress.org

I'll bet Obama was really pissed that he blew his big line for the whole world to see!

I give Obama a pass on this one. It appears Chief Justice Roberts was having an Obasm and misread the oath.

But then, it also appears Barry was having a self-imposed Obasm and couldn't wait for Roberts to finish the first sentence before repeating after him.

OBAMA RE-SWORN IN At 735 pm, Roberts administred the oath of office again to obama in the map room. Robert gibbs said the wh counsel, greg craig, believes the oath was fine Tuesday, but one word was out of sequence so they did this out of a "an abundance of caution." "We decided it was so much fun..." Obama joked while sitting on a couch. Obama stood and walked over to make small talk with pool as roberts donned his black robe. "Are you ready to take the oath?" Roberts asked. "I am, and we're going to do it very slowly," obama replied. Oath took 25 seconds. After a flawless recitation, roberts smiled and said, "congratulations, again." Obama said, "thank you, sir." Smattering of applause. "All right." Obama said. "The bad news for the pool is there's 12 more balls." http://www.drudgereport.com/flashoaa.htm

Well, good. After hearing the mistakes that were made by BOTH Obama and Chief Justice Roberts, I was of the opinion that they should do it over.

Ok then, now that he’s officially President and has told us that he is going to be completely transparent, maybe now he’ll open his records and also show us his birth certificate.

Seems like everyone was good-natured about it.

Here's the pool report:

At 735 pm, Roberts administered the oath of office again to Obama in the Map Room. Robert Gibbs said the WH counsel, Greg Craig, believes the oath was fine Tuesday, but one word was out of sequence so they did this out of a "an abundance of caution."

"We decided it was so much fun..." Obama joked while sitting on a couch.

Obama stood and walked over to make small talk with pool as roberts donned his black robe.

"Are you ready to take the oath?" Roberts asked.
"I am, and we're going to do it very slowly," obama replied.
Oath took 25 seconds.
After a flawless recitation, roberts smiled and said, "congratulations, again."
Obama said, "thank you, sir."
Smattering of applause.
"All right." Obama said. "The bad news for the pool is there's 12 more balls."

I must admit to taking a bit of perverse pleasure in knowing the “real” oath was administered in a room with a very small crowd.

What the masses saw was make-believe. (snicker, snicker)

Technically, nothing he ordered until he re-oaffed after 7.35 pm this evening is valid, legal, etc......any lawyer currently not backing up to The 0 will tell you that.

I just want to add... can you imagine the lamp-throwing and purple rages if this had happened to someone like Bill Clinton? At least Obama seems good-natured about it. I imagine if Bill’s “big day” in 1993 had been messed with like this, he would have been bashing Roberts and stamping his feet like a kid having a tantrum. In fact, he probably would have had a breakdown at the podium.

Obama's stumble made my day yesterday, and the Kos-type trolls' desperate attempts to rewrite the event made my day today. They wince. They cringe. They remember how they went stark raving whenever Bush's words didn't flow. Or they'd edit him so he'd sound stupid.

They were the ones who made such a deal out of the need to always speak perfectly. If you stumble over a word, that makes you a moron. Obama stumbled, big time. Big time moron.

Yup. There's a lot of so called conservatives that are taking the side of the libs on this and blaming Roberts for the whole fiasco. Obama SHOULD have done the correct oath no matter what Roberts said and it wouldn't be an issue.

Look, you know the oaf of office is a living breathing oath document that is meant to be interpreted. 0 is more concerned with Prez Abbas than out of work union thugs who voted for him. The re-oaf in the map room was 0’s pledge of allegiance to Bill, Hitlery, George Soros and Hamas......pretty simple...his right hand was placed on a 1000 page stack of CDO’s gone belly up while his was raised left hand was picking boogers.
