What are the most memorable events for President Obama in 2013? 

President Barack H. Obama was inaugurated for his second term on January 21, 2013.  The theme for the Inaugural Address was "Faith in America's Future". The President's speech was inspiring and intense. Read President Barack Obama's 2013 Inaugural Speech at this link.

During President Obama's year end interview with FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz, President Obama was asked if 2013 was his worst year.

The President responded that was not how he thinks about it.

I happen to agree with the President. Each year brings its ups and downs, its triumphs and challenges. While 2013 was filled with many challenges, there were triumphs and blessings, too.

Obamacare Legislation spearheads the top of the controversy list for the President. It definitely did not smooth things out for the beginning of Obama's second term but it may have clouded more ominous events.
