Historical moment as Roberts botches swearing in...

Let's just say that the big moment between Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and President Barack Obama did not exactly go according to plan.

First, Roberts seemed to hesitate in the first part of the oath, prompting Obama to start in with "I Barack Hussein Obama," as Roberts continued on with the rest, causing a verbal traffic jam.

Then, Roberts changed the wording of the oath, misplacing the word "faithfully", and obliged a bemused Obama to incorrectly repeat after him. In short, those 35 words that should have gone without a hitch, will forever go down in history as the way not to swear in a president.

Perhaps the lack of a teleprompter is the issue???
