It's a Republican Conspiracy . . .

The Bush appointed Republican Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, misquotes the Presidential Oath of Office which is set forth in the Constitution.

Accidental? Nerves?

Or A Republican Conspiracy??

Granted this is the Chief Justice's first Inaugural go-around. But he is Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. And the oath is clearly set out in the Constitution. The oath is 35 words long. Too long for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to memorize?

Robert's misquote then leads President-elect Barack Obama to incorrectly restate the oath.

Does this mean he's not really president?

Did you notice??? Why was the oath for the President and the Vice President different (aside from the office title, of course). The Vice President swore to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic etc., while the President only swore to uphold the office of the Presidency...
When I joined the Navy, I swore the oath that Biden did. Obama's oath was shorter and made no reference to the Constitution. How come??

The Presidential Oath is the only oath actually set forth in the Constitution and it states, "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." Hopefully they got it right on the second try.

It's just an Obama 'Bushism'. Enjoy it as there won't be many, certainly not enough to fill books.
