Honeymoon Over for Obama?

That did not take long. Obama's honeymoon lasted all of a few hours. Now some are pointing out his errors, and there were a couple on his first day in office. http://townhall.com over at http://townhall.com/news/politics-elections/2009/01/20/fact_check_obama_goofs_right_off_the_bat points out that "In the third sentence of his inaugural speech Tuesday, the newly sworn-in president said, "Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath."

While there have been 44 presidential administrations, there have been only 43 presidents; Grover Cleveland served two nonconsecutive terms in the late 1800s.

There is also the swearing in ceremony. I do not know if that counts because I am not sure exactly when Obama became president (if high noon then it would count, if after searing in then probobly not). He stepped on CJ Roberts line, then they both flubbed their way to the end. Kind of comical considering that they are both well educated legal minds who probobly know the oath by heart. Well, when you are standing in in the freezing cold in front of an estimated two-million people with untold numbers watching on TV (no to mention a moment that will likely be replayed forever), who knows how you would react.
