Obama's two records as he swears in

Barack Obama Is Sworn In As 44th President Of The United StatesI am just watching C-Span as Barack Obama swears in for his second term. He’ll be repeating the oath tomorrow, making him only the second US President to take the Presidential oath four times (if you remember, Obama took the oath twice in 2009 due to a bit of Chief Justice flubbing).

Add to this the fact that the final 2012 election vote count shows he had over 51.06 percent to Romney’s 47.21 percent. That makes Obama the first President since Eisenhower in 1956 to get more than 51% of the vote. Obama is now one of only four US Presidents who have won over 50% of the vote twice, the others being Eisenhower, Reagan and F.D.Roosevelt.
