6 comments on “Obama Screwed Up Oath of Office Video

  1. The oath of office reads:

    “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Roberts paused after saying “repeat after me… I Barack Hussein Obama…” and Obama started repeating it, but then Roberts jumped back in with “do solemnly swear…” After Obama repeated that part, Roberts continued with “that I will execute the office of the President of the United States faithfully…” Obama paused to allow Roberts to correct his mistake and then repeated.

    John Roberts was only in the spotlight for about a minute and couldn’t even get his part right. Is that an indication of what kind of Chief Justice he is?

  2. Actually it was Roberts who made the mistake. He put the word faithfully in the wrong place. Properly spoken the oath goes: “that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States” But which ever was wrong is it really that big a deal?

  3. Sorry my friend it was Chief Justice Roberts little fumble that was the cause, NOT Obama’s.

    “The former Illinois senator indicated he was, and Roberts started reciting — and Obama repeating — the 35-word oath that is prescribed by the Constitution.

    But at one point, Obama paused abruptly after Roberts reversed several words in the oath.

    The oath includes the phrase “that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States” but Roberts didn’t say “faithfully” until after saying “president of the United States.”

    Obama apparently realized that something was out of order.

    Roberts then repeated the phrase correctly, putting “faithfully” in the right place after execute: “faithfully the office of president of the United States.”

    But Obama instead repeated Roberts’ original, incorrect version: “… the office of president of the United States faithfully.”

    Later, as they shook hands before a lunch in the Capitol, Roberts chatted briefly with Obama and appeared to say that the mistake was his fault, not Obama’s.”

    But really, does it matter? NO

  4. Ignorant. Roberts screwed it up. Obama had to stop while Roberts found his place and started over.

  5. You all do realize it’s all a conspiracy, right? Roberts screwed up on purpose to try to mess up obama. lol!

    We’ll be talking policy soon enough, anyway. Enjoy.
