Barack Obama swears by the 4th time as US president

The U.S. president, Barack Obama, today paid an official protest for a second term in a private ceremony at the White House. Obama was inaugurated as the fifty-seventh president of the United States by the president of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, in the presence of his wife Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and other family members. The ceremony was held in the Blue Room of the White House in which Obama solemnly swore to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" while the first lady held the Bible belonging to his family since 1958. As required by the U.S. Constitution, the president and vice president have to pay official protest to take possession of the charges before noon on January 20. However, traditionally the swearing in public is not performed on Sundays for religious reasons, so six other presidents have repeated the ceremony the next day. Obama will pay protest again Monday in the Capitol in a massive event that is expected to attend some 900 thousand people to hear his promise to defend the Constitution. On Monday, Obama will be sworn in for the fourth time, because when he took power in 2009, Judge Roberts stumbled over the words of the provisions of article two of the Constitution and the ceremony had to be repeated the next day in the House
