Photos: Media swoons; Obama sworn in for second term, says ‘I did it’; Updated

No, not quite his first words. But, close! President Obama was sworn in to his second term moments ago. There was much anticipation by the press.

@bsmialo and members of press pool sit in doorway between Red and Blue Rooms as they are in position for private Obama swearing in at White House #inaug2013 #apinauguration  #apatthehouse

Chief Justice Roberts administered the oath.

No flubs this time!

And tweets, with more lapdog swooning, poured in. Breaking!

Aww, did you want to be the one and only?


And President Obama, after taking the oath, said this to his daughter:

Not the first words of his second term (he offered thanks to the watching media and to Chief Justice Roberts first), but close.

Zing! Those are the only times he refrains from using the word “I.”

Update: FLOTUS is proud again.

      God will help those who help themselves….clearly, the American People failed to do so…God gave us the gift of choice, and we chose wrong….again…we’re screwed…

  • Cocotrini

    *lol* geez I think the entire world knows he got sworn a second time, Americans are funny *lol*

    • Corey Dennison

      How does reporting a news event make Americans ‘funny?’

  • Roto

    Maybe when Obama says, “… preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” TWICE in 2 days, it will finally sink in!! Doubt it though…..

    • Meech204

      He’s never believed in the Constitution & now that he’s officially in, he’s about to open it wide open. God Help Us.

  • Steve_J

    Mo? Were Larry and Curly Joe there also?

    • TJCrane_NCC1701

      What about Harpo…..oops…..Oprah ?

  • BeeKaaay

    Obama lies during his oath of office.

  • Adela Wagner

    And if you DON’T know it. He WILL remind you…over and over. “As President of the United States….”, “Because I won…”,”I’m the President…”,”You didn’t win John…”,”I ran on higher taxes and the American People voted for ME…”…..Now I must go wash my hands after typing this.

  • Dan

    Mr Obama swore an oath to uphold the constitution of the united states not change it by executive orders. the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    The ever-present “I.” Narcissist-in-Chief. May God have mercy on us all!

    • Sincerely —

      Is he even aware of the irony of his statement . . . you know, after telling business owners “You didn’t build this.”

      No, Bill Ayers and George Soros “did it.”

  • Lady 12

    Worst birthday since 2009.

  • Joseph Phillips

    You didn’t build that.

    • Clayton B

      …no, he stole it…

  • michael s

    So what if he said I did it. He did .Mitt didn’t. I like how that reads.

    • Jillane Kent

      I bet you’re also a giant fan of inflation and monetary easing as well. Good thing, because you shall be treated to it in abundance.

      Since you seem like the kind of fellow who desires affirmation, I’m going to congratulate you. Yes, michael s, this is a good day for you! I completely concur. This is as good as it gets. Am I right?

      Break out the booze and have a ball!

      • michael s

        Thank you. I couldn’t feel better if I was Jodie Foster at a bridal shower .

          Too bad he still suck ass as a pResident.

          As good as getting a raise in your EBT benefits?

  • $30423294

    I hate to break it to you, lefties, but it’s all downhill from here. A fraudulent media dragged Mr. Obama across the finish line this time. Just as Lance Armstrong accepted his Tour de France yellow jersey, time after time, with smug satisfaction, Mr. Obama claimed his prize today. Both men will wear their achievements like crowns because they both lack consciences.

    But history will denounce them both.

  • kssturgis62

    National Black Out Day is tomorrow. BLACK OUT THOSE TV’s Do Not Watch. We know the lie, we don’t need to be angered more than we are. They will repeat it for days to come. I am so much happier only reading things in the news and not hearing it blast at me 24/7, basically by a bunch of people who really don’t know anything or how we the American People really feel.

  • HARP2

    But did you plug the hole yet daddy ?

  • $30423294

    And Mr. Obama’s priorities for his second term — straight from the President himself — are:

    1. Immigration reform
    2. Gun control
    3. Global warming

    What about jobs and the economy, Mr. President?

    Point: this man is utterly unconcerned about you Americans.

    “He just takes care of number one. And number one ain’t you. You ain’t even number two.”

    • Meech204

      Where’s National Security on that list? Also, the people who voted for this clown are the ones that are “least” prepared to handle the next four years when things get really bad….and those times are coming fast.

    • Roto

      Don’t forget energy…. he’s got alot more coal miners to put out of work.

  • 24fan

    first time: I won
    second time: I did it.

    hard to tell which one chills me most

  • dunst43

    That picture of Obama taking the Oath should be on everybody’s desk at the RNC. It will remind them of what happens when you don’t run conservatives.

    • 6cheri6

      No, it reminds us what happens when you give your vote to him for spite!!

  • Garth Haycock

    And so officially begins the 2nd term of the worst POTUS in history. It’s a sad and embarrassing day for this country.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    You sure did Barry. The pathetic economy. The reduced liberty, The fear of the mailbox. The uncertainly about our prosperous future.. The dead Americans overseas. The corruption in govt. The destruction of trust in public institutions. The dividing of the nation. Only consolation of his re-election is his supporters, the ones without the right connections anyway, are going to feel the pain the most. The battle continues for Patriots, though. It’s up to us to do everything in our power as free citizens to make his life and that of his supporters in entertainment, politics, and the medias as miserable as possible till this nightmare ends

    • Garth Haycock

      Well stated, friend. Obama has absolutely no respect for the law of the land and therefore, we as citizens need to continually remind him that he works for us and we refuse to bow down to him.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    I dit it is often the realization of what sociopath narcissists recognize (in what alcoholics call “a moment of clarity) as “I got away with it.” Knowing full well in that moment that their entire existence is a calculated invention of others (well, hello Bill & Bernadine). This type of man has spent his entire life as a liar, a bully, a pretender, never haven truly accomplished anything on his own. Rather, he makes nothing but excuses, stands on the shoulders of his betters, takes credit where none is due, points blame in ludicrous directions, inserts himself into an American history created by better, stronger men of all ethnicity that had the type of fortitude he knows he will never posses. And counts on a media cult to threaten those opposed to “The State” while anointing his feet with oil and praising him.

    And one day many, many years from now a surviving Nation will remember. And that man’s tombstone will read one simple word:


    • BeautifulAmerica

      and CRIMINAL.

    • Roto

      Bravo zulu!!!! Very, very eloquent and complete….

  • Shawn Smith

    He didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

    • Shawn Smith

      (Like, for instance, his lying accomplices in the mainstream media.)

  • Herman LaClair

    would love to hear him give that same answer to the question, “Who completely screwed up this country for years to come?”

  • overboosted

    The fact that the worst president of modern times got re-elected has me doubting society in general. Our founding fathers are weeping in heaven…….


  • USMale1960

    Today we see America’s first 3D president. 3D meaning Disingenuous,
    Divisive and Delusional.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Disgusting, Delusional, Demon, DemocRat, Downlow-practicing, Derogatory-Race-Baiting, NWO-Dumpster-Diving, Despicable Dimwit?
      Got more?..

  • USMale1960

    What’s up with that woman’s hair? She looks like she just crawled out of bed.

  • Snarky D

    “I did it” must have been preceded by a huge fart.

  • msueh

    The last time, I put a black mourning band around my US flag. This time, it will fly upside down for the next 4 years.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Sad-but-good idea. We should all add the Black Armband to our flags today.

    • SpinMeNot

      Case the colors … after all, the current administration doesn’t believe in the exceptional nature of the country, her citizens or our founding documents.

  • Christoph DeHaven

    Wait…Obama said “I did it”?
    He didn’t do that. Someone else made that happen.

  • DANEgerus

    Why did Michelle have to wear a helmet?

    • BeeKaaay

      Because she’s a hard headed leftist.

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Sworn in as the biggest Con Man in history. What a sham..and a shame.

  • BeautifulAmerica

    What happened to “You didn’t do that?”

  • BeeKaaay

    The Narcissist in Chief keeps only thinking about himself.
