WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has been sworn in for a second four-year term.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the oath of office Sunday in the Blue Room of the White House. First lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and a few reporters witnessed the ceremony.

Obama will take the oath again on Monday during a public swearing-in at the Capitol before hundreds of thousands of people.

Earlier, the president and Vice President Joe Biden honored the nation's fallen soldiers, placing a wreath, adorned with red, white and blue ribbon, in front of Arlington's Tomb of the Unknowns.

Obama and his family then attended services at the historic Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Washington.

Biden was sworn in to a second term earlier this morning.

Its going to be a long long four years from this socialist. I hope we make it through it. He needs to go back to Illinois where he belongs with other Chicago thugs. His rule is his way or the highway. He does not even try to have bipartisan. Here we go with another four years on the campaign trail trying to convince us that what ever he wants is what the majority of people want. And if other leading Democrats don't go along with him he undermines them and pressures them till they do.
