2005 Presidential inaugural ceremony: President George W. Bush sworn-in to second term President Bush has taken the oath of office for a second term. The theme of his inaugural address can be summed up in one word: freedom. On January 20, at noon (1700 GMT), the president put his hand on a bible and repeated the traditional oath. Chief Justice William Rehnquist, administered the oath on the west front of the Capitol. Members of the U.S. Congress served as witnesses, along with a crowd of about 100,000 people gathered on the vast lawn that stretches from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. Military gunners fired their cannons as Hail to the Chief was played, signaling the start of a new presidential term. To the cheers of his supporters and the applause of those who came just for a glimpse of history, George W. Bush moved to the podium to deliver his second inaugural address.
