President Obama was sworn in for his second term on Sunday, accompanied by his family in a short ceremony in the White House.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts administered the oath of office to Obama in the Blue Room, as the swearing-in was watched by a press pool and broadcast by cable networks.
Obama followed presidential precedent in choosing Roberts as chief justice to administer the oath of office to him.
The 44th president used a bible from first lady Michelle Obama’s family to swear in for his second term. The first lady held the bible during the ceremony, as the Obamas’ daughters, Sasha and Malia, stood between her and Roberts.
For the swearing in, Roberts read the oath of office from a piece of paper. In 2009, the Supreme Court chief justice and the president flubbed the 35-word oath.
