The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies is chaired by Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer and includes Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. This is the body that plans and executes all Inaugural activities at the U.S. Capitol, including the swearing-in ceremony of the president and vice president and the traditional luncheon that follows.
So, apparently they've already thought about it. It looks like it's going to be the 21st.
Changing the date took an act of Congress--literally. S. Con. Res. 35 established January 21, 2013, as the official date for the Inaugural.

Charles. My way of thinking, if people are going to riot over Romney displacing Obama in the WH, it won't make a difference what day the swearing-in is. They've already made up their minds on instigating violence.

No, I don't see where it should be a problem. But that's just it, I don't see a problem, but others are just looking for any excuse to cause trouble, if it wasn't this, it'd be because the sun was out, or because it was raining, anything. And this is where if obama had any morals/backbone he'd put his big boy pants on and nip the protest/riot rumors in the butt and tell the masses we're better then that and welcome the new President.
Yeah, I know, I don't see obama having spine enough to do that.
While violence was the calling card of the old Klan, Howard repeatedly said the Klan had moved on from that tactic. Yet he and others freely talked about a looming race war if Obama was re-elected. The KKK and other groups call it "the storm."
"Oh, it's going to happen. And I fear it. ... And it ain't just me. ... If he gets four more years, Barack Obama will ruin this country. And white people will be in concentration camps, and if you don't think that white people [can] be in concentration camps, [you] are sadly mistaken
A Texas judge said this week that a “civil war” could possibly erupt in the U.S. if President Barack Obama is reelected.
