Surprise, Surprise: Republican Screws Up The Oath Of Office for Obama

 

Chief Justice John Roberts swore in President-elect Barack Obama as president of the United States on Tuesday with a slight stumble over the wording of the oath of office ...Roberts started reciting — and Obama repeating — the 35-word oath that is prescribed by the Constitution.

But at one point, Obama paused abruptly after Roberts reversed several words in the oath.

Subject: Pas pire comme blague de 2009

 

Hi Lisa, this morning in my mailbox :-) been a bit free with the translation but it's all there.

 

"Some day in January, an old man sits on a bench in front of the White house, watching it.

 

 He gets up and asks the soldier on guard if he can visit the White house and see President G W Bush.

 

Sorry Sir, G W Bush is not the president and does not live here.

 

The old man goes away.

 

The next day, the same old man sits on the same bench bench in front of the White house, watching it.

 

He gets up and asks the same soldier on guard if he can visit the White house and see President G W Bush.

 

 Sorry Sir, G W Bush is not the president and does not live here.

 

The old man goes away.

 

The next day, the same old man again sits on the same bench bench in front of the White house, watching it.

 

 He again gets up and asks the same soldier on guard if he can visit the White house and see President G W Bush.

 

The soldier now becomes a bit anxious.

 

Sorry Sir, G W Bush is not the president and does not live here.

 

What is it that is not clear to you?

 

Oh son, the old man says, it just sounds so good to hear you say this.

 

 Whereupon the soldier jumps to attention, salutes and says " See you tomorrow Sir"
