Not what he flubbed

Various sources are, of course, reporting that the Chief Justice flubbed when the tried to lead Barack in saying “I will execute the office of President of the United States faithfully …”

And yes, that is a flub. And yes, he did flub. But folks are paying so much attention to part of the flub (the incorrect placement of “faithfully”), they’re missing the other part: he said “President to the United States”, not “of”.

And let us note that’s not some random oath. The words of it are in the Constitution… the document which the Chief Justice is supposed to be a rather key authority on.
