Section 1 of the Twentieth Amendment states:
The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January.
So on Sunday, 20 January 2013 at noon Eastern Time, President Obama will be sworn in for his second term.

I wonder what kind of day Willard is having?
Should it be “four” instead of “for”? Willard is filling the gas tank, buying stuff at Walmart and wondering where things went wrong.
Thanks Bev. Put it up before I had coffee 😉
Happy MLK Day everybody. Little chilly here for the Marade, but the sun’s out and a beautiful day.
No question about it, liberalism is back! That’s the most liberal inaug speech I’ve seen in my life time!
Not a particularly inspiring speech. But definitely an “in your face” speech. He made it clear to the opposition party that he does not suffer fools gladly.
I found it extremely inspiring, it was Barack the liberal warrior, I’m very inspired. The mention of Stonewall brought tears to my eyes.
Ok Brian, it was inspiring to you because it was such an “in your face” speech to the right. But there was no one-liner that will be remembered forever. Think of JFK’s “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
A well delivered fuck you to the GOP always inspires me. If you look back over the sweep of history you’ll see it was the presidents who took a firm ideological stance that are considered great. Barack Obama isn’t looking to be another Clinton, he’s looking to be another Reagan.
” he’s looking to be another Reagan.”
Not exactly Mitt Romney quality, but good none the less.
It was reported earlier Mitt didn’t watch the ceremony. Pathetic.
PS: Tagg is delusional or hasn’t had any contact with his Dad for 7 years.
And can I say, the First Lady is rockin’ the bangs.
It’s sad that Romney didn’t make a public statement congratulating the President today. But that insight into his character reaffirms that the voters made the right choice.
Our prez sure looks happy today! I bet Michelle has a few packs of Nicorette in her bag!
Beyonce was awesome!
Yeah Bev. Old fart that I am, not all that familiar with Beyonce’s work, but she was truly awesome.
amazing how Blanco’s poem was almost predictive of the president’s address.
If all that one remembers from PBO’s second inaugural address is “We the people, we the people, Seneca Falls, Selma, Stonewall”, one got the message.
It’s up to citizens to demand their government work effectively for all.
His line about voting rights got a roar from the crowd.

Borowitz’s take on Beyonce’s lip sync:
LOL Bev. That was priceless. I particularly liked:
Mr. Paul also blasted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her testimony on Benghazi before the Senate today: “Her tactic of answering each and every question we asked her didn’t fool anyone.”
