Bernie Sanders: Obama Takes Oath for 2nd Term

Obama Takes Oath for 2nd Term

President Barack Obama on Monday took the oath of office for his second term before a crowd of hundreds of thousands massed along The Washington Mall. Sen. Bernie Sanders said Obama’s second inaugural was “eloquent in its simplicity and inspiring in its basic theme that we’re all in this together.

“On the day our nation was marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., our first African American president invoked our country’s long history of advancing civil rights, as he put it, from Seneca Falls to Selma to Stonewall, Sanders added.

“As we rebuild our economy and as we bring an end to a decade of wars, the president laid out a strong vision for how we must protect our planet and renew our commitment to securing fundamental rights for all Americans.

“As the president brings forth his budget and legislative priorities, I look forward to working with him to create the millions of jobs that our workers need, to provide health care for all Americans and to protect the social safety net for seniors, veterans, children and the poor.”

So true. We need to do this together, as one heart and one voice!

We can do this.
