It's a campaign strategy. He's all about getting the votes. I support gay marriage too, but Obama only does things to stir the pot and get the votes in. Later on I bet you a shinny penny he is going to bring up immigration reform to cater to the Latino population and get his votes. He should [have]
You didn't elect me to tell you what you wanted to hear. You elected me to tell you the truth.
I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that's not what America's about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they d
Lincoln -- they used to talk about him almost as bad as they talk about me. So democracy has never been for the faint of heart.
Being a father is sometimes my hardest but always my most rewarding job. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
We can't just drill our way out of the energy and climate challenge that we face.
[E]very decision, every debate, no matter how important it is, with the same question: 'What does this mean for the next election? What does it mean for your poll numbers?

Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science ...
Torture is how you create enemies, not how you defeat them... Torture is how you get bad information, not good intelligence. Torture is how you set back America's standing in the world, not how you strengthen it.
I think it's important to recognize that you can't have 100 per cent security and also then have 100 per cent privacy and zero inconvenience.... In the abstract you can complain about Big Brother and how this is a potential program run amok, but when you actually look at the details then I think we'

We have a rare chance to pursue a new path, a different, better future that delivers progress for both our peoples and the wider world. That's the opportunity before the Iranian people. We need to take advantage of that.
When times get tough, we don't give up. We get up.
The way we have to measure progress is not, "Is there ever going to be an incident of racism in the country?" It's, "How does the majority of our country respond?"
By 2025 we expect new spacecraft designed for long journeys to allow us to begin the first ever crewed missions beyond the Moon into deep space. So we'll start by sending astronauts to an asteroid for the first time in history. By the mid-2030s I believe we can send humans to orbit Mars and return t
If you like your healthcare plan, you'll be able to keep your healthcare plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.
When you start just focusing exclusively on trying to tear the other person down instead of what you are going to do on behalf of the American people to deal with this economy, then that's not serving Democrats, that's not serving Republicans, that's not serving anybody.

It is our generation's task, then, to reignite the true engine of America's economic growth - a rising, thriving middle class.
We can't afford to stand pat while the world races by. The United States of America did not become the most prosperous nation on Earth by sheer luck or happenstance. We got here because each time a generation of Americans has faced a changing world, we have changed with it. We have not feared our fu
[T]hese tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans are also the tax cuts that are least likely to promote growth.

I believe we [americans] are strongest as a nation, when the president and Congress work together.
What can I do to make sure that middle-class families are feeling more secure, that more young people are able to access opportunity, that we are safe, that we are working with our international partners to try to create more order at a time when there's a lot of chaos? How do we deal with terrorism
Having the United Kingdom in the European Union gives us much greater confidence about the strength of the transatlantic union and is part of the cornerstone of institutions built after World War II that has made the world safer and more prosperous.
This is a matter of Congress authorizes spending. They order me to spend.
To anyone out there who has ever been assaulted: You will never be alone. You are never alone. We have your back. I've got your back.
