Chief Justice Roberts Flubs Oath

Jan 20, 2009 12:44pm

Some conservative Web sites are already saying President Obama flubbed the oath of office.  And
it certainly wasn’t smooth. But it appears it wasn’t his fault, but that of Chief Justice John Roberts.

This is what Roberts was supposed to ask Mr, Obama to repeat:

"That I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States."

Instead, Justice Roberts said, "That I will execute the office to President to the United States, faithfully."

Justice Roberts misplaced the "faithfully," and added a weird "to" in there as well.

Let’s see who gets the blame among the various blogs and sites out there.
