It wasn't exactly a wonderful 2013 for President Obama. One commentator dubbed it "the worst year in Washington" but the past 12 months have produced their share of memorable moments. Between his two oaths of office in January and the now-famous "selfie" snapped in December, Obama's eventful 2013 revolved around the year's biggest issues: health care, the government shutdown, the Boston Marathon bombings, gun control, allegations against the Internal Revenue Service, a confrontation with Syria, a new opening to Iran, and near-constant polarization of Republicans and Democrats.
