Above all, our freedom endures because of the men and women in uniform who defend it.

There was no such thing as Al Qaeda in Iraq, until George Bush and John McCain decided to invade Iraq.

Barack Obama
Winston Churchill used to say that we, Americans, try every other option before we finally do the right thing. After everything else is exhausted we eventually do the right thing and I think that's true for Congress as well. And it's important for Americans to remember that politics has always been messy.
Barack Obama

Foreign Assistance is not an end in itself. The purpose of aid must be to create the conditions where it is no longer needed.

Barack Obama
Greatness is never free; it must be earned.
Barack Obama

This is a matter of Congress authorizes spending. They order me to spend.

Barack Obama
For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. Now, it's true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, floods-all are now more frequent and more intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science-and act before it's too late.
Barack Obama

The time to fix our broken immigration system is now... We need stronger enforcement on the border and at the workplace... But for reform to work, we also must respond to what pulls people to America... Where we can reunite families, we should. Where we can bring in more foreign-born workers with the skills our economy needs, we should.

Barack Obama
Every woman should be in control of the decisions that affect her own health.
Barack Obama

There is probably a perverse pride in my administration... that we were going to do the right thing, even if short-term it was unpopular. And I think anybody who's occupied this office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy and politics and that you can't be neglecting of marketing and P.R. and public opinion.

Barack Obama
The point is ISIL leaders cannot hide. And our next message to them is simple - you are next.
