From Facebook, a claim that Obama flubbed the Oath of Office "again"

No specifics in the posting, of course, but it complains about Beyonce lip-synching and asserts that "Obama flubbed the Oath of Office again."

WTF are they talking about? I know that Roberts screwed it up, of course, but this is the first I've heard that Obama got it wrong. And both times?!?


What am I missing?


Thanks.

1. Roberts screwed up the first time, but there were no mistakes by anyone this time around....

....don't you think the media would have been all over this if there had been a mistake?

3. The one done on the 20th, the one that counts went right.

I really didn't try following it verbatim on the 21st however.

4. VIDEO - During the oath yesterday (Monday) Pres Obama sorta stuttered on the ...


... on the word 'States' after he said said the word United.

But it doesn't matter because the 'official' oath was given on Sunday during a private ceremony and he said it perfectly.


The stutter is at the :33 second mark in the video below

6. He skidded on "States" a little bit

It was odd, but not a flub.

9. He did it perfectly on the 20th.

He seemed to get choked up on the word "states" on the 21st. I assumed it was nervousness or emotion.

He's President. They need to deal with it.

13. Also, by flubbing the Oath, he implicitly admitted that his birth certificate is a forgery

14. Well, that and...

...to avoid a charge of perjury because he's really Kenyan, or Indonesian, or whatever.

11. The hell is their damage?

Do they think stuttering one word means they get a do-over election? Beyonce lip-snyced! Do over! Do over!

Bush didn't finish a sentence in 8 years without screwing up.

Edited to add: Subject line is a rhetorical question. Their problem is that he isn't white.

Who want some way to deny reality.

15. "Pissed off white people"?

1. More than likely some Republican is starting it.
2. There are a mix or races in the Republican Party, not just white.

Please let us not start to go in that direction of thinking.
