1. Don't forget, Roberts is one of Bush's appointments.
Guess he can't talk right either.

6. I know.
Although necessary to shut freepers complaints, I still think that could have been avoided if only republicans would show some pride in what they do. What a bunch of f>@#$ morons.

14. He'll probably use the note card next time like Renquist use to.

2. It has happened twice before
and honestly I think everyone is making this bigger than what it really is. You can see while Obama was taking the oath that he knew that Roberts flubbed the lines.

I would rather him have done the second oath (he will have a 3rd oath in 4 years ;)) than to have the RW talk this up.

3. It's the 3rd time in USA history there's been a do over. It's not that important.
We won't have to hear fox news talking about it everyday.

4. He is not the first.
Apparently Coolidge and Arthur both had a do overs.

10. Our Pragmatic Prez decided to just shut up the crap by doing it again.
Obama and common sense are best friends.

He doesn't care about a one day story. He would rather put out some silly spark now instead of letting it turn into a conspiracy theorist brush-fire to bat at as an annoyance for years to come.


Do it, it's done, move on.

11. "And we're going to do it real slow."
Reporters and photographers were allowed in but no TV. When Roberts asked, "Are you prepared to take the oath?" Obama joked, "Yes. And we're going to do it real slow."

13. I liked his final joke-"All right."Obama said. "The bad news for the pool is there's 12 more balls."
