"No, Roberts said it right the first time," That isn't true, Roberts misplaced "faithfully" the first time, and left out "execute" the second time. No big deal though. This has happened twice before to 2 different Presidents. You'd think that Roberts would have some sort of cheat sheet on him in case he got nervous!

Why are our comments bold on this thread?

from that website, 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.”

Hmm, I don't know, Roberts should have gotten it right. IMO.

Why does it matter whose fault it is. I'd probably say "Suzy is a snow-blower" if I was told to repeat it in front of the entire world. :shrug:

Frank, I bet Obama will add a kids section. That's a good idea, and his campaign has certainly appealed to kids before.

No, Roberts said it right the first time, Obama basically wanted him to repeat the sentence, Roberts switched the words around and Obama said it the right way(the way Roberts said it first).

Barack started talking to soon and then Roberts flubbed. That's what I heard. But anyways, Bush had a kids section and Obama doesn't. :(

I was trying to convince my boss that we should try to get the job of developing the new site. It turned out great! Not surprised China censored the speech and the oath flub was cute...Obama screwed up a little bit first, then the rest was Roberts. First time for both of them, probably just nerves.

But then Obama said it wrong after that. Both flubbed.

It seemed pretty clear that it was Roberts's flub. No biggie. The website looks great.

I love the site. I've been visiting since 12:01 yesterday once it changed over. It's fun to see just how different each presidents take on their website. I hated Clintons, plus the security on that one was bunk. I lost time the amount of time it was hacked into... Wasn't too fond of the first one Bush had during his 1st term. The one during the second term was a bit better and more eye pleasing layout wise. And I love that Obama, continued on with the web 2.0 layout that he had during his campaign time :D So visit and visit often :D

I loved the flub. Whoever's fault it was. I think it's funny on the website they say ROBERTS: … that I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully… OBAMA: … that I will execute… ROBERTS: … faithfully the office of president of the United States… OBAMA: … the office of president of the United States faithfully… They say that Roberts messed up the words, Obama caught him, gave him a chance to fix it, which made things worse. But in the end, Obama says the line the same way Roberts initially flubbed. I think it was cute. They are both Human. Sh!t happens.

But it looks like you can't comment on the WH Blog, so there are no free t-shirt opportunities for the more verbose among us... :howyoudoin:
