Justice John Roberts: Proof that Repukes are incompetent and have no business.....
...in government.

The only fuck-up of the day yesterday - the very important swearing in of the new president - was botched by a repuke. And he's supposedly the smartest one they got.

Is there anything these guys can't screw up?

2. In Japan
They'd all resign and just go away.

Roberts doesn't need to be impeached, he should resign first.
The house needs to be cleaned out. No reason to stop cleaning now. We just got started.

3. Cut the guy some slack
He had to fish his copy of the constitution out of the shredder and he got some of the pieces mixed up -- that's all.

4. Can someone tell me .. exactly
how it went wrong? It seemed a lot shorter than the VP oath. When Obama repeated, he said what Roberts had said the FIRST time, didn't he? I'm just confused on exactly what happened.

TIA.

5. Really? I thought it was obviously done wrong on purpose.
I hope it helped Obama understand how much "post-partisanship" he's going to get from these people.

24. To show the base that they are "fighting"
It doesn't cost them anything and it's a symbolic victory. Something that a lot on our side don't seem to understand.

10. You can't be nice to snakes & expect to get graciousness in return.
Their only chance to get votes is to keep the country divided, because their interests don't serve the little people. And keeping "the little people" angry keeps their minds off what the Rethugs are really up to: keeping corporations happy by stomping on the little people.

23. Good luck....
During confirmation he was praised as very smart and experienced. Can't impeach him because we don't like his views. Or because he misread the oath.

13. Solution
Type out the oath on a 3x5 index card and mail it to him.

22. Now, now
No reason to get physical. I my most charitable of hearts, I think Roberts was thrown when Obama began repeating the oath before Roberts was quite done reciting the first phrase. Roberts didn't have the words in front of him (like he should have), and got all bollixed up. Helpful citizens could provide him with a handy resource for the next time he has to swear in Obama as President of the United States.

Sometimes a botched line is just a botched line.
