I came to office promising major ethics reform to end the culture of self-dealing. And today, that ethics reform is a law.

My fellow citizens, the American Presidency is not supposed to be a journey of personal discovery.
New terms used like, 'overseas contingency operation' instead of the word 'war' - that reflects a worldview that is out of touch with the enemy that we face. We can't spin our way out of this threat. War & Peace
Obama's capitalism is a capitalism of connections.

People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation - much like building a mosque at Ground Zero.
