Today, after Mr. Obama praised his staffers as "an extraordinary collection of talent" who "inspire great confidence in me," the president asked his Number 2 if he wanted to administer the oath.Here's video of the first Bidenism, taken at the expense of Justice Roberts:
"Am I doing this again?" Vice President Biden asked. A few minutes before, he had sworn in seven individuals who had been confirmed by the Senate to Cabinet and Cabinet-level posts.
"For the senior staff," Mr. Obama said.
"For the senior staff?" Biden repeated. "Alright."
Biden tried to get a copy of the oath to read to the senior staffers.
"My memory is not as good as Justice Roberts," Biden explained, prompting some laughter and groans from the audience.
