At the inauguration of President Barak Obama, the New York Post reports that Chief Justice John Roberts flubbed the President's oath of office. Here is an excerpt from the article:
But at one point, Obama paused abruptly after Roberts reversed several words in the oath.
The oath includes the phrase "that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States" but Roberts didn't say "faithfully" until after saying "president of the United States."
Obama apparently realized that something was out of order.
