U.S.: Who screwed up the oath, Obama or Roberts?

  • It was the Chief Justice. John Roberts, when saying the oath to Obama, reworded part of it on the fly, putting “faithfully” at the end of the clause rather than its traditional place in the middle. As a result, the oath will probably be remembered by millions as the time Barack Obama briefly stammered and asked for a re-do. (And what a way to remember it!) source
