Why is it all over the news about the oops in Obama's oath yesterday? The man giving the oath (I forget his title, secretaty or justice of something maybe??) was supossed to say "faithfully execute the office of the United States of America" but instead said "execute the office of the United Stated of America faithfully". And it's been all over the news last night & already this morning. Does it really matter where the word "faithfully" ends up in the sentence? LOL WHO CARES!!!!

I agree. The misplacement of the word does not change the meaning of the sentence.

I agree they were both probably SOOO nervous and had 50 million other things running thru their heads.

Personally I think that it was the person who was giving him the words that made it almost impossible for Obama to not mess up. Instead of giving him a few words at a time...he gave him paragraphs....and if the media is going to jump allover this they need to grow up.

They were talking about a redo just to make it official.

I can't stand the guy and i don't care.  It's probably the biggest moment of his life until that point... give the guy a break!

I thought it was funny.  You could tell obama had memorized it but was thrown off by the way the guy said it.  It's not a big deal, just human error!
