It was uncharacteristic, as despite the youthful immaturity of many of his judicial views, Roberts is one of the sharper intellects in town. That he would make two mistakes within the same short and well-known passage was hardly to be anticipated.

More like two grown men doing that little dance you do when neither one is sure who's going to go through the door first. But they got past it.

You are posting this in jest aren't you? Quoting Fox makes it more hilarious. Did you check yourself? For those who didn't.

Obama, Chief Justice Roberts Stumble in Recitation of Presidential Oath | Political News - FOXNews.com

WASHINGTON -- Chief Justice John Roberts stumbled slightly over the 35-word constitutionally prescribed oath of office as he swore in Barack Obama as the 44th president on Tuesday, sending the new chief executive into a verbal detour of his own.

Bots keep this one for your archives. Readers you can now see why Obama is soaring in polls as more realize the snow job the fringo's tried to pull on them during the campaign.

Bush wasn't sworn in by a stammering Bush-appointed chief justice.

This is one of the best of the best threads. It would have been hilarious anyway but to quote Fox without linking or checking and have Fox then linked is better then a Visa Card paid for by someone else.

You're right. He should be required to serve his Presidency backward.

If you read the transcript, it is clear they BOTH got it wrong. First, Roberts said it wrong. Obama then paused, Roberts read it correctly, then Obama repeated it wrong. Case closed. We have a new President.

Here's a video of Chris Wallace saying that he's not sure that Obama is the President because the oath was bobbled.

It seems you owe several apologies.
