Just to Be Safe.

Obama and Justice Roberts flubbed the oath yesterday, so there was a re-do this evening.

WASHINGTON – President Obama was re-administered the oath of office on Wednesday evening by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., one day after the two men stumbled over each other’s words during the inauguration.

Mr. Obama and Mr. Roberts stood in the Map Room of the White House at 7:35 p.m. and recited the oath before a small group of advisers and a handful of reporters.

Robert Gibbs, a spokesman for the White House, said the oath was re-administered out of an “abundance of caution” because a couple of words were out of place on Tuesday. The White House Counsel’s office thought the original oath was proper, Mr. Gibbs said, but did a second oath anyway.

    Too bad blowhard Joe decided to take a very public cheap shot at Justice Roberts.

    re-doing the oath was silly and a waste of time.
