1. I always thought he messed it up on purpose the first time.

It just seemed a little strange that somebody could mess that up when reading it off a card.

19. As I recall

He didn't use a card, thus the fuck up.

2. I don't think he is rehearsing to flub it up,

I think he is just planning to wing it so the fuck up looks natural .

3. Yep. Of course he wants to screw up in front of an audience of millions.

Please refer to Occam's Razor.

4. Might as well. I spent two weeks arguing with conservatives over that foolishness. They'd love it.

8. It's like the swearing in they do in congress...

There's the actual swearing in where all they do is raise their hand and the photo op where they put their hand on the Bible.

In this case, Obama is going to be sworn in privately the day before the public event.

9. I remember Obama having to cue Roberts in the public and private swearing in. Roberts was a fool.

6. To be a hero to the Right Wing...

It gives them a reason to claim Obama isn't REALLY legitimate.

He needs to do SOMETHING after his ruling on the ACA.

No.

15. Not to us....

But there were many on the Right who used the event.

Indirectly, he was given credit.

Since then they have criticized him.

There's a motive to get in their good graces again.

16. The Right doesn't CARE about reality....

Right now some of them are saying Roberts should be impeached if he swears in Obama since Obama isn't a US citizen.

7. And he gets to screw it up twice this time, right?

Once on Sunday and again on Monday.

If he does, it will make President Obama the most "sworn in" pres. in US history with 6 - twice last time and 4 this time.

11. Roberts made an honest mistake. President Obama caught it the first time and the same.

I think things will go smoothly on Sunday and Monday.

14. Officially it will be done the day before the nation see the inauguration ceremonies.

Just opposite from 2008.
