article imageOp-Ed: Obama Not President? Oh, Those Crazy Guys at Fox News

By Sandy Sand     Jan 21, 2009 in Entertainment
Bush Supreme Court appointee Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. royally screwed up reading the oath of office to Barack Obama, leading some to believe he did it deliberately. This mistake, Fox News commentators believe, means OBama might not be president.
Conspiracy theories come and go and this one is as good or bad as any of them.
But the fact is that Roberts did screw up the oath for millions if not billions of people to see.
Roberts paused when he shouldn’t have, leading Obama to repeat the words after him prematurely. If that were bad enough, Roberts proceed to insert the word “faithfully” in the wrong place.
Shamelessly stepping into the breach was Chris Wallace of Fox News speculating that Obama might actually not be the president, even though all the words were said as proscribed by the U.S. Constitution, even if they weren’t in the exact order.
If this were to ever become a court case, it would surely come before the Supreme Court, where Roberts would have to testify “mea culpa,” case closed.
