Barack Obama Gets Sworn In For Second Term! Mazel Tov! [PHOTOS]

Hey America, say hello to your 44th president, Barack Obama!

President Obama was sworn in this afternoon, officially cementing him for his second term in office. Obama enjoyed a very private swearing in with only his wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia as witnesses. Obama was sworn in, like last time, by Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Roberts.

Today’s swearing in ceremony was a lot calmer than usual. You can expect the chaos tomorrow when Obama takes the oath a second time in front of a huge crowd of folks. Today’s swearing was required by the Constitution because as everyone who took AP Government and had to read the whole thing know, the president has to be sworn in on January 20th! 

Tomorrow should be quite a show indeed. Around 800,000 people are expected to show up and the President will get to enjoy performances from Beyonce and James Taylor.

Launch the gallery to check out all the fantastic photos from the swearing in. I’m obsessed with all the ones of Barack and Michelle looking all loving and perfect. Congrats, Mr. President! Hope the next 4 years are a good time for everyone.
