The President was clearly peeved when Biden made that crack about Justice Roberts. I think he's going to have more than one instance of that. Lock him in the closet like Lynne Cheney

I thought it was hilarious. I was over at my grandparents for dinner last night, and we all busted out laughing when they showed the soundbite on the news. It's one of the reasons I love Joe Biden. He's not afraid to call people out on their bullshit, like being enough of an arrogant douche to think that you'll go ahead and administer the Presidential Oath without notes when you've never done it before. It really wasn't even that much of an insult, and I really hope that aspect of Biden doesn't get muzzled while he's VP.

Well I don't think he wants Biden making any of his 7 11 type jokes, or calling any African American politicians " bright and clean and articulate". That's politics, it's PC (or on the better flip side trying to be decent and kind) for certain reasons sometimes and people do get muzzled. That's part of the game, good or bad.

Maybe Justice Roberts just messed up because of the enormity of the occasion, etc. And people just make mistakes. I just don't see any reason for Biden to make a public crack about it Biden could start to look like an arrogant douche.

^I see your point, for sure especially about some of Joe's more infamous cracks. I forgot about some of them, so thanks for the reminder. However, I'm not giving Justice Roberts a pass on screwing up on something as huge as the Oath of Office. If he's nervous that's understandable. He's in front of 2 million people, and it's his first time administering it. If he would have used notes and then stumbled over something, I'd be more understanding. But when he's arrogant enough to go up there and wing it, that's not so understandable anymore.

Yeah that was bad judgement on his side because the constitution is very specific about what needs to be said, it's not like a speech where a few words can be moved about...

That was my problem. Obviously the oath doesn't legally make the new president officially the president (Chris Wallace, I'm looking your way, dumbass), but it's clearly very important and needs to be said correctly. Then again, Roberts is a pick of the Bush administration, so I guess my expectations were too high.

ETA: Just for sheer awesomeness. This cracked me up last night, especially the FOX clips and Jon's reaction. It doesn't have anything to do with the oath screw-up, but it's still hilarious.

It's the WH and I just think President Obama is trying to set a certain tone from the start. I like the way he rolls, I like his temperament.

Biden can't be the Biden of old in public, that's just the way it's going to be with Obama as his boss.

Ha! I love it. FAUX News doesn't get to be in the front row in the briefing room. Enjoy your rapid decline, Sean Hannity! And we have a press secretary that actually answers reporters' questions.

Why is Chuck Todd asking questions about re-signing executive orders and why there's no video of the re-taking of the oath?

I just want to know about this stimulus stuff. We're supposed to be getting a lot more than last year.

No, just in the TV ratings

I'm in Glasgow, Scotland and i watched the inauguration live&felt very moved - it was a fantastic speech&i'm so very happy Obama won&that Bush has gone everyone over here hated him!

It's so great to have a likeable guy in the white house and it does look as though he's really gonna try&stick to his promises


What a great day for the world this was
