USA | Official ceremony Obama, in his inauguration: 'A decade of war is ending'


Barack Obama delivered Monday his oath with his hand on the Bible of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King and it was they who impregnated his inaugural address. A more precise and challenging text than four years ago and built around the first words of the Constitution. But Obama failed to mention the words of the founding fathers as a tie but as an inspiration and urged Democrats and Republicans to see their "loyalty to the constitutional principles" without fear "to find new answers to new challenges." President begins now a second term will be marked by the influence of the Republicans, who retain control of the House and threaten to block his proposals to reduce the deficit, pass immigration reform or strengthen gun control to prevent another slaughter as Newtown. So Obama's speech included many references to legislative gridlock that the country has been suffering for several yearsand the need for national consensus to resolve the great problems of the country. "Now we have to make decisions and we can not afford any delay," the president proclaimed. "We can not confuse the principles with maximalism, replacing the policy by the show or treat insults as reasoned debate . We must act and act now knowing that our work will be imperfect. " In Obama's words, there was a reference to the speech Lincoln delivered at the dedication of the cemetery at Gettysburg and the prophetic dream of the Rev. Martin Luther King. The President recalled the words of civil rights leader and proclaimed heir to the same principles that guided "who left their footprints in the park to hear a pastor say that we can not walk alone and to hear him proclaim King our individual freedom is linked to freedom of every soul on earth. " Backed by an enthusiastic crowd but less numerous than four years ago, the President recalled that the Constitution that all men are created equal. But he stressed that each generation has the obligation to interpret these words and apply them to the problems of his time. Freedom is not self-created .'s a right that comes from God but we have to ensure we are here on earth, "Obama declared in an appeal to overcome the differences that separate Democrats and Republicans on the major challenges that now have to face the country.

Working Together

Backed by his allies and his adversaries on the steps of the Capitol, the president said it is the idea that all men are created equal, that distinguishes Americans from other towns and evoked Lincoln that "no marriage can survive if half slave and half free. " But his words were not an evocation of the struggle for civil rights but a call to the citizens in facing problems together that await them. "We can not do anything if we act alone," proclaimed the president aware that is required to get along with Republicans. "More than ever we have to face the problems together as a people and a nation. Obama openly proclaimed the end of a decade of wars and claimed that decisions taken against climate change and that his trip would not have ended up extending the struggle for civil rights to homosexuals and Hispanics who fight for immigration reform. But in his speech just looked a tear of emotion when referring to the duty of politicians to keep children safe from violence in schools and avoid a repeat of the slaughter of Newton . An event that confessed a few days ago the president was the worst day since coming to the White House. "A decade of war has ended and a new decade just started recovery. Possibilities are limitless America . We are made ​​to take advantage right now and as long as we act together, "Obama proclaimed in words more optimistic than those of his inauguration, marked by the explosion of the financial crisis and the threat of recession.

Investiture faultless

This time Judge John Roberts did not err with the words and the winter sun cold eased the crowd, much less dense than the capital took four years to celebrate the arrival of Obama to power. Neither former presidents Bush family attended the ceremony in the Capitol. Yeah they did Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and all members of the Obama administration but one that stood in an unspecified location to ensure that any attack on Washington did not create an power vacuum. The touch of glamor was provided by singer Beyoncé , which closes the official event playing the national anthem. Before she act the Marine coral, singer-songwriter James Taylor and the star Kelly Clarkson , who play patriotic themes before the swearing-in of President. You could say it was the most Hispanic takeover to date . The Cuban-born poet Richard Blanco recited his verse a few minutes after Obama's speech and Pastor Luis Leon prayer uttered before the national anthem. The mariachis of La Joya and the Colorado Ballet Folklorico paraded alongside the president and the hundreds of famous Hispanics Eve with a gala celebrated his inauguration. The pomp of the endowment pulled on Saturday with a day of volunteerism and included a concert for children, a Hispanic gala held at the Kennedy Center and a meeting with donors millionaires who sang Stevie Wonder and the President recalled that the symbolic importance of any takeover. Unlike four years ago, this time forth two presidential and two dances are held at the Washington Convention Center. The first for the families of members of the armed forces and the second, open to the general.

The challenges ahead

Monday Washington was a city split in two by the concrete barriers of the police, guarding the approaches to the National Mall and the area surrounding the inaugural parade route. Street vendors made a killing dusting that which failed to sell four years ago and at the official store of the White House was a half hour queue to pay. The second term of Obama will be marked by its tug of war with Republicans , who control the House of Representatives and a priori have power to block his initiatives on arms control, deficit reduction and immigration. Its leaders surprised a few days ago by announcing that put to the vote the transient increase debt ceiling to avoid economic shocks. An initiative for now save the country from bankruptcy but did not rescue the collision between the two major parties by the end of April. The president never tires of warning that his priority is to build the country behind closed doors and not embark on any adventure abroad. But there are several threats in the coming months about his reluctance to intervene abroad. The explosion of Islamist violence in North Africa is the most obvious. But civil war rages in Syria, the Egyptian government is lurching and Iran's nuclear program continues to advance. Three issues that promise to attract the attention of Obama and limit its room for maneuver before the end of his years in the White House. Investiture events have left some clues about the 2016 presidential race. remain to Democrats Hillary Clinton, still defoliating Daisy and pondering whether it is worth undertaking a second presidential race. But the vacuum created by his silence begins to take advantage of Vice President Joe Biden, who has never hidden his desire to launch his third bid for the White House. Biden has just turned 70 but feel strong and begins to take its first steps to try. On Sunday his oath invited representatives of battleground states in the primaries like Iowa or New Hampshire and winked at Hispanics attending the gala hosted by Eva Longoria latina and choosing as fedataria Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
