Tomorrow’s Presidential inaugural ceremonies mark the beginning of the fight for President Obama’s ambitious second-term agenda.

 

But it’s not just President Obama’s agenda. It’s yours too.

 

The fight to protect Medicare, Social Security, and an equal playing field for all Americans won’t be easy. But we can do it if we stand together. 

 

President Obama needs to know that you’re behind him. Take the pledge and tell President Obama that you’re a strong supporter of his second-term agenda. Make sure you act before his inaugural address at noon tomorrow! Let’s get 150,000 strong united behind our President.

 

The inaugural ceremonies tomorrow are going to be incredible. But nothing will compare to how much we’ll accomplish over the next four years if we stand together.

 

 
President Obama takes the oath of office at noon tomorrow! If you’re a supporter of President Obama, tell him that you back his second term agenda before he takes the stage.

 

Thanks for your support,

Today, in two separate, private ceremonies, President Obama and Vice President Biden were officially sworn into office, marking the start of the second term. (The Constitution mandates that the President takes the oath on January 20. Since that date falls on a Sunday this year, the public inauguration ceremony and festivities will take place tomorrow, January 21)

 

President Obama took the oath, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts, in the Blue Room of the White House, using a bible that belonged to First Lady Michelle Obama’s paternal grandparents.

Vice President Biden was sworn in by Justice Sonia Sotomayor in front of family and friends in a ceremony at the Naval Observatory. Vice President Biden took the oath using the Biden family bible.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden Celebrate the Inauguration with Military Families

The First and Second Ladies of the United States got an early start on the 2013 Inauguration celebrations at a concert honoring our military families.

 

The Kids Inaugural: Our Children, Our Future was hosted by Nick Cannon and featured artists including Katy Perry, Usher, the cast of “Glee,” Far East Movement and Mindless Behavior. JR Martinez, the Army hero who won “Dancing with the Stars,” also joined Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden for the event, which was held at the Washington Convention Center.

 

Dr. Biden said the concert was a chance to show military kids how much the country appreciates the sacrifices they make while their parents are serving.

 

The First Lady told the crowd that while she loves “every single minute” of the inaugural celebrations, the Kids Concert was the true highlight:

 I have to tell you that my very favorite part of this entire weekend is being right here with all of you. Absolutely. Because for me, this is what inauguration is all about. It’s about celebrating who we are as Americans and all the things that make this country so great. And when I think about who we are, when I think about what makes America great, I think about all of you –our men and women in uniform, our military spouses, and our amazing military kids.

 

The concert was held in support of Joining Forces, the initiative launched by Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.

  1. When I was a young man I had great respect for Ronald Reagan. Still do. As an older man, I have great respect for Barrack Obama, whom I regard as the best president and political leader of my lifetime. Most people would find that juxtaposition of leaders contradictory. I see it as uniquely American.

    America is a strange land of confounding contradictions. And somewhere in the land, watching the inauguration of President Obama… is a future American leader, born and bred to the notion of peaceful transfer of power from one leader to the next.

    That’s what I love most about America.

    • Yes, it is a strange land, when it works correctly it is a wonderfully strange land. Glad you’re up and around Mr. Publius, did you enjoy your weekend?

      • It was a pleasant weekend of doing nothing after our epic rains of the past week. Basement issues. You already know the story.

        But the sun’s out today. President Obama is sworn in and still at the helm. That’s all good for my kids and grandkids. So even if I still have a leaky basement, things are looking good on this MLK day. The ruling elites tried to divide and conquer us again, but the Rule of Law prevails once more. We are headed in the right direction under enlightened and moral leadership. For the first time since the invasion of Iraq, I feel some pride in being an American again.

        How about you, Mr. Jueseppi? How goes the battle of explaining complicated issues to the unwashed public?

      • I am spending the day in front of the TV celebrating MLK Day, Barack & Joey B.’s inauguration and the very first historic brother vs brother head coaching (Harbaugh vs Harbaugh) superbowl in NFL history.

      • That should be a good game. The Niners look loaded to me. And that
        Kaepernick kid is clearly a special QB. I don’t know if the Ravens can take these guys down, but if they do, I’ll bet Ray Lewis will be the catalyst of it. Old age and treachery verus youth and enthusiasm.

      • For the first time in ages, this is one superbowl in which I have no favorite. The 49’ers for Kaepernick, the Ravens for Ray Lewis.
