Obama sworn in

leave a comment »

Obama was sworn in as president today. Yes, today, the day after he was sworn in at the Capitol building. The second swearing in happened in the White House out of “an abundance of caution” over yesterday’s flubbed recitation of the oath.

“Are you ready to take the oath?” Roberts asked.

“I am, and we’re going to do it very slowly,” Obama replied.

CNN’s stupid headline blames Roberts alone for yesterday’s mess-up, even though the story itself notes that Obama’s interruption may have thrown Roberts off stride, causing him to botch the next phrase.
