Biden: My memory is not as good as Justice Roberts. (VIDEO at link)
http://thinkprogress.org/2009/01/21/biden-justice-rober... /

President Obamas first official media appearance ran into a minor speed bump today when Vice President Biden was unsure whether he was supposed to swear in new White House senior staff. Biden then took a lighthearted swipe at Chief Justice Roberts, who misread the presidential oath to Obama yesterday:

BIDEN: Am I doing this again? For the senior staff. Alright.

OBAMA: A number of the other members have already

BIDEN: My memory is not as good as Justice Roberts, Chief Justice Roberts (laughter).

1. I'm not trying to get too .wrapped up in this mistake...
I just love the fact that humor and real life are part of the equation again. Good grief...we are all human...we all make mistakes (except Cheney and Bush, I guess).

Things work much better when people act human. Just my 2 cents

2. Fair enough, but Roberts is to a Supreme Court Chief Justice what Velveeta is to Cheese.
Just...sayin'

3. Did you see Obama? He was not happy about that joke at all.
