President Obama’s Gaffe While Taking Oath Of Office

By Javier Manjarres

obama oathMillions of American witnessed President Obama take the Oath of Office on the steps the Capitol, yet no one is really talking about the President’s gaffe while he recited the oath being read to him by Chief Justice John Roberts.

 When repeating the words,”I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States,” Obama got a bit tongue-tied, or perhaps zoned out for a split second, when he said, “State” instead of  “States.” Was it intentional? Does he mean that he sees the country as being a ‘United State’ and not the United States?

 These things happen to all of us. Remember in 2008, Chief Justice Roberts completely screwed fumbled the same Oath he administered to then Senator Barack Obama.
