Kos: Roberts Goofed, Not Obama

Chief Justice John Roberts is a man who has made very few public missteps in his life -- but he appears to have made one when swearing in Barack Obama. Roberts slightly flubbed the oath, which then tripped up Obama. The oath is contained in the Constitution: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." But when Roberts swore in Obama, he flipped some of the words, saying: "I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully"/Daily Kos. More here.

DFO: Hey, it's a new age. Daily Kos, as the go-to blog of the Left, should have face time here. Having said that, I'll let you click on the link to discover the headline that Kos used. Which you won't see in a headline at Huckleberries Online.
