We see the hope of tomorrow in the youth of today. I know Americas youth. I believe in them.在今天青年人的身上,我们看到了明日的希望之光,我了解美国的青年,我也相信他们。We can be proud that they are better educated, more committed, more passionately driven by conscience than any generation in our history.同我国历史上任何一代相比,当今的青年受到了更好的教育,更富于献身精神,更强烈地感受到良心的驱使,我们为此而深感自豪。No people has ever been so close to the achievement of a just and abundant society, or so possessed of the will to achieve it.我们比任何民族都更接近于建成一个公正而富裕的社会,或者说没有人像我们一样抱有建成这种社会的决心。And because our strengths are so great, we can afford to appraise our weaknesses with candor and to approach them with hope.我们拥有如此强大的力量,因而能够坦率地面对我们的弱点,并满怀希望地设法予以克。Standing in this same place a third of a century ago, Franklin Delano Roosevelt addressed a Nation ravaged by depression and gripped in fear.三十余年前,富兰克林·德拉诺·罗斯福站在这个地方,向饱受经济萧条蹂蹦并深陷惶恐之中的人民发表演说。He could say in surveying the Nations troubles: ;They concern, thank God, only material things.;他在考察国家的困难时说道:“值得庆幸的是,这些困难仅仅只涉及物质方面的事情。”Our crisis today is the reverse.我们今天的危机却恰好相反。We have found ourselves rich in goods, but ragged in spirit; reaching with magnificent precision for the moon, but falling into raucous discord on earth.我们发现自己在物质上富甲天下,精神上却一贫如洗。We are caught in war, wanting peace. We are torn by division, wanting unity.我们困于战乱,企盼着和平;我们苦于四分五裂,期待着团结统一。We see around us empty lives, wanting fulfillment. We see tasks that need doing, waiting for hands to do them.我们放眼四周,我们困于战乱,企盼着和平;我们苦于四分五裂,期待着团结统一。To a crisis of the spirit, we need an answer of the spirit.对于这一精神上的危机,我们需要从精神上作出回应。To find that answer, we need only look within ourselves.为了找寻,我们要审视自己的内心。When we listen to ;the better angels of our nature,; we find that they celebrate the simple things, the basic things--such as goodness, decency, love, kindness.在聆听我们天性中的“主善天使”时,我们发现她们所赞美的是那些质朴和基本的东西,诸如德行、尊严、爱心和善良之类。Greatness comes in simple trappings.伟大原本来自朴实无华。The simple things are the ones most needed today if we are to surmount what divides us, and cement what unites us.我们若要消除导致分裂的因素,加强促进团结的纽带,当务之急乃是一些简单易行的事情。To lower our voices would be a simple thing.譬如压低嗓门就是一件简单易行的事情。In these difficult years, America has suffered from a fever of words; from inflated rhetoric that promises more than it can deliver;在这些艰难的岁月里,美国热衷于辞令,随口许诺以致轻诺寡信,from angry rhetoric that fans discontents into hatreds; from bombastic rhetoric that postures instead of persuading.言词激愤以致将不满煽动成仇恨;夸夸其谈,故弄玄虚,而不是循循善诱,结果使我们吃尽苦头。We cannot learn from one another until we stop shouting at one another until we speak quietly enough so that our words can be heard as well as our voices.我们彼此之间应停止吵吵闹闹,我们要心平气和地相互对话,这样才能使对方不仅听清我们的声音,而且理解我们的言辞,否则,我们根本就不可能相互学习。For its part, government will listen.就政府一方而言,将倾听一切声音。We will strive to listen in new ways--to the voices of quiet anguish, the voices that speak without words, the voices of the heart我们将致力于通过新的途径来倾听各种声音-——倾听默默受苦之声,倾听无言的诉说,倾听发自肺腑的声音,to the injured voices, the anxious voices, the voices that have despaired of being heard.倾听受伤者的悲鸣、焦虑者的呼号以及因无人倾听而陷入绝望的叹息。Those who have been left out, we will try to bring in.对于那些被遗弃的人,我们将尽全力使之加入我们的队伍。Those left behind, we will help to catch up.对于那些落后的人,我们将帮助他们迎头赶上。For all of our people, we will set as our goal the decent order that makes progress possible and our lives secure.对于我国全体人民,我们的目标在于建立良好秩序,以推动社会进步,保障人民安居乐业。02/437810,bzH4lvcQG2a6;rS78u2RxW~993!DPFor all these things I am grateful to you. But I feel no exultation, no sense of triumph. Our troubles are all ahead of us. Some will call us appeasers; others will say that we are the war Party. Some will say we are reactionary;others will say that we stand for socialism. There will beinevitable -- the inevitable cries of ;throw the rascals out,; ;its time for a change,; and so on and so on.Well hear all those things and many more besides. But we will hear nothing that we have not heard before. I am not too much concerned with partisan denunciation, with epithets andabuse, because the workingman, the farmer, the thoughtful businessman, all know that they are better off than ever before, and they all know that the greatest danger to free enterprise in this country died with the Great Depression under the hammer blows of the Democratic Party.h0~MSKRk~argA|1KUA(|aqK.-*b+4y.~MGHQ([F|9|P3%t]T.[Xa4R201201/169594

THE PRESIDENT: Be seated. (Laughter.) Welcome. What a great day for the White House. I am pleased to welcome volunteers from around the ed States who have given of their time to help those who need help, and we're sure glad you're here. Those of you today who perform acts of kindness do so out of love, and you do so out of a desire not to be recognized -- but anyway, you're going to be recognized. We have the opportunity today to thank you, and the opportunity today to celebrate the difference that volunteers have made all across America.   I want to thank Jean Case, who's the Chairman of the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation. And I want to thank the members of the Council who are here. (Applause.)   And I thank David Eisner, the CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service; Jack Hawkins, the Director of Volunteers for Prosperity, USAID; Ron Tschetter, Director of the Peace Corps; and other Peace Corps volunteers who are here -- about which I'm going to say something a little later. (Laughter.) This tends to be an enthusiastic bunch, and so I would ask you to -- (laughter) -- keep your enthusiasm in check for just a minute. (Laughter.)   The spirit of charity that is celebrated here has been a part of our character, our nation's character, ever since before we were an independent nation. In 1736, for example, Benjamin Franklin organized the citizens of Philadelphia to form a volunteer fire company. Isn't that interesting? A lot of our -- a lot has changed since then, but the principle that inspired Benjamin Franklin is still true today, all throughout the communities in America.   Those of you who are here today understand the lesson, how you can gain by giving. You can understand how volunteering can transform the souls, both who give and those they help. When you teach a child to , for example, you not only improve their chances for success in the world, but you become invested in the progress of a young life. When you visit the elderly, you remind them that they are loved, and you remind yourself of how deeply we all feel the need for compassion. When you help the homeless find shelter, you remove the pain of need, and rediscover the resiliency of the human spirit.   While there are many ways that government can help society's least advantaged -- and we try to do our best here in Washington -- it can never replicate the private acts of goodness and the ties of affection they create between Americans. And that is why our administration has focused on empowering citizens with open hearts, not just government programs by opening up checkbooks.   I strongly support the faith-based and community-based initiative. I believe it is in government's interest to empower those neighborhood healers and helpers, social entrepreneurs, to be able to complete their acts of love and compassion. Government is love -- government is justice and law, it's not love. Love is found in the hearts of our fellow citizens. And the true strength of America truly is, is found in the hearts and souls of Americans who hear the universal call to love a neighbor.   One of the ways that we have tried to encourage volunteerism is through the creation of the USA Freedom Corps. The Freedom Corps is an attempt -- a successful attempt, I might add -- to create a culture of service and citizenship and responsibility. And so one way to be useful in the government level is to provide a way for citizens to become connected to service opportunities in their communities. And it's working, it really is. Last year alone, more than 60 million volunteers from all across America provided social services and aid to those in need, both here at home and abroad.   The volunteers oftentimes work for large charitable organizations, or they find individual opportunities in their own community. But it always requires someone willing to say, I want to help somebody else. And so Americans, if they want to find out how they can help, if you're motivated by Volunteer Week, or if you're motivated by hearing this message, you're motivated by a neighbor saying, gosh, it's really made my life better to help somebody in need, why don't you go to the website of USA Freedom Corps, and you can look it up at "volunteer.gov." It's not all that hard; you just get on there and type "volunteer.gov." (Laughter.) And you can find opportunities to be able to serve your country by helping somebody who needs some help.   Another step we've taken is the creation of the Presidential Council on Service and Civic Participation. And one of the Council's initiatives is awarding the President's Volunteer Service Award, which is a distinction that honors hard work and dedication. It's a way to say thanks. You can't give everybody an award; I wish we could. So we try to herald people who can set a good example for others.   And this year we focused on recognizing volunteer programs that are started in corporate America. I believe corporate America has got an enormous responsibility to give back to their community and, so too, those who are being honored today. Paul Otellini and Barry Salzberg are with us. I'm going to talk about each one of them individually.   First, Barry Salzberg, he's the CEO of Deloitte, and he is -- he understands the need to be a good corporate citizen. He understands corporate -- that corporate giving is an essential part of being a good citizen in the ed States of America. He, himself, has been a board member of several charitable organizations, including the College Summit, the YMCA of Greater New York, and the Committee for Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy.   Under his leadership Deloitte has committed to providing pro bono services worth up to million for the non-profit sector over the next three years. And Barry, thank you very much for being here. (Applause.)   And then there's Paul Otellini. Glad you're here, Paul. He happens to be the CEO of a little mom and pop operation called Intel. (Laughter.) Intel will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The company could have chosen to mark this occasion by simply looking back on its four decades of impressive accomplishments, but instead, as a result of Paul's leadership, the company has chosen to celebrate with a great act of compassion: Intel has committed to one million hours of volunteer service by its employees. This is a huge effort and I can't tell you how appreciative we are of your generosity but, more importantly, those who you will help are more appreciative of your generosity. Please thank your employees for this. (Applause.)   There is a lot of volunteer work here in America. Every day there are just countless acts of compassion. And interestingly enough, it doesn't require one government law. As a matter of fact, oftentimes people are inspired by a higher law. And there are also countless acts of compassion overseas. One of the great joys for Laura and me as we travel is to be able to see ordinary citizens from the ed States helping save babies' lives as a result of the Malaria Initiative or working with orphans who have been left alone because of HIV/AIDS. And also it's a chance for us to really run into one of the great organizations that government has sponsored. It's called the Peace Corps.   Forty-seven years ago, President John F. Kennedy in the Rose Garden sent the first team of Peace Corps volunteers to Africa. And in the intervening years, more than 190,000 Peace Corps volunteers have carried our country's great spirit of generosity and compassion throughout the world.   Laura and I met with Peace Corps volunteers in Ghana recently, and they are some kind of fired up. (Laughter.) Matter of fact, it is exciting to be with those good souls who are motivated to go help, and in so doing it really is the best foreign policy America could possibly have.   And today I just had my picture taken with a group of spirited volunteers -- (laughter) -- who are headed to Guatemala. And I thank you all for your service, and I'm glad you're here, and thanks for coming. (Applause.)   I believe strongly in the admonition, "To whom much is given, much is required." Those of you here today are living up to that noble calling. And you carry on the best traditions of American citizenship. In my first inaugural address, I said it's important to be a citizen, not a spectator. And there's no better way to be a citizen [than] to be a soldier in the armies of compassion, a foot soldier.   And so today we commemorate your work and the work of volunteers all across the country here at the White House. I appreciate the lasting legacy that you've helped create in the hearts of our fellow citizens. I thank you for what you do. And I ask for God's blessings on your work. Thanks for coming. (Applause.) 200806/41457

In a sense, China's State Visit to the ed States had aly begun by the time of the Arrival Ceremony this morning, with President Obama and President Hu joining a working dinner the night before. But the ceremony was no less grand for it, as both Presidents took part in the customary reviewing of the troops. And of course there was a great deal of work left ahead (see our live-streaming schedule for a sense of it), with each President beginning the day with calls for more productive cooperation between the two nations.Read the Transcript | Download Video: mp4 (297MB) | mp3 (29MB) 201101/123819

  To those new states whom we welcome to the ranks of the free,对于那些我们欢迎其参与自由国家行列的新国家,we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny.我们要提出保,绝不让一种形成的殖民统治消失后,却代之以另一种远为残酷的暴政。We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view.我们不能老是期望他们会持我们的观点.But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.但我们却一直希望他们能坚决维护他们自身的自由,并应记取,在过去,那些愚蠢得要骑在虎背上以壮声势的人,结果却被虎所吞噬。To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves,对于那些住在布满半个地球的茅舍和乡村中、力求打破普遍贫困的桎梏的人们,我们保尽最大努力助其自救,不管需要多长时间。for whatever period is required not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right.这并非因为共产党会那样做,也不是由于我们要求他们的选票,而是由于那样做是正确的。If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.自由社会若不能帮助众多的穷人,也就不能保全那少数的富人。To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge: to convert our good words into good deeds,对于我国边界以内的各共和国,我们提出一项特殊的保:要把我们的美好诺言化作善行,in a new alliance for progress, to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty.在争取进步的新联盟中援助自由人和自由政府来摆脱贫困的枷锁。But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers.但这种为实现本身愿望而进行的和平革命不应成为不怀好意的国家的俎上肉。Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas.让我们所有的邻邦都知道,我们将与他们联合抵御对美洲任何地区的侵略或颠覆。And let every other power know that this hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.让其它国家都知道,西半球的事西半球自己会管。To that world assembly of sovereign states, the ed Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace,至于联合国这个各主权国家的世界性议会,在今天这个战争工具的发展速度超过和平工具的时代中,we renew our pledge of support to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective,它是我们最后的、最美好的希望。我们愿重申我们的持诺言;不让它变成仅供谩骂的讲坛,to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak, and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.加强其对于新国弱国的保护,并扩大其权力所能运用的领域。Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace,最后,对于那些与我们为敌的国家,我们所要提供的不是保,而是要求:双方重新着手寻求和平,before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.不要等到科学所释出的危险破坏力量在有意或无意中使全人类沦于自我毁灭。03/437800

  Each one of those markers is a monument to the kinds of hero I spoke of earlier.这里的每一个墓碑都是对我所提及的那些英雄的纪念。Their lives ended in places called Belleau Wood, The Argonne, Omaha Beach, Salerno and halfway around the world on Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Pork Chop Hill, the Chosin Reservoir, and in a hundred rice paddies and jungles of a place called Vietnam.他们在一些叫贝鲁伍德、阿尔贡、奥马哈滩、萨莱诺的地方,在相隔半个地球之遥的瓜达卡钠尔、塔拉瓦、独排山、长津水岸和一个叫越南--有着许许多多稻田和丛林的地方献出了他们的生命。Under one such marker lies a young man Martin Treptow who left his job in a small town barber shop in 1917 to go to France with the famed Rainbow Division.在这里的一块墓碑下躺着一位名叫马丁托雷普托的年轻人,他于1917年离开一座小镇的理发馆,随同著名的虹师来到法国。There, on the western front, he was killed trying to carry a message between battalions under heavy artillery fire.在那里的西部战场上,他在猛烈的炮火中为自己的部队传递信息时牺牲了。 We are told that on his body was found a diary.有人告诉我们在他的身上发现一本日记。On the flyleaf under the heading, ;My Pledge,; he had written these words: ;America must win this war.扉页上写着这样的标题:“我的誓言”。 他写下了这样的话语:“美国必须赢得这场战争。Therefore, I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.;为此,我会奋斗,我会拯救,我会牺牲,我会忍受,我会并将尽我最大的努力英勇奋战,就好比所有的战争问题都将由我一个人来肩负。”The crisis we are facing today does not require of us the kind of sacrifice that Martin Treptow and so many thousands of others were called upon to make.我们今天面临的危机并不是要求我们作出像马丁托雷普托和其他数以千计人那样的牺牲,It does require, however, our best effort, and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds;然而,它确实要求我们作出最大的努力去工作,要求我们愿意相信自己,相信我们有能力干出伟大的事业:to believe that together, with Gods help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us.团结一致,在上帝的帮助下,能够并且一定会解决我们面临的种种问题。And, after all, why shouldnt we believe that? We are Americans. God bless you, and thank you.我们为什么不应该相信这一点呢?毕竟我们是美国人。愿上帝祝福你们。03/438047。

  

  President Bush Meets with Prime Minister Gillani of PakistanPRESIDENT BUSH: Mr. Prime Minister, welcome. It's been a -- it's been a very constructive morning. We've had a good meeting in the Oval Office. And then I'm going to have lunch with the Prime Minister here in the main White House. And that's fitting. After all, Pakistan is a strong ally and a vibrant democracy. The ed States supports the democracy and supports the sovereignty of Pakistan.We talked about areas of concern. Of course, we're going to spend a lot of time on the economy, about how the ed States and Pakistan can continue to cooperate to -- for economic benefits for all the people of Pakistan and for our own country, for that matter. And of course, we talked about the common threat we face: extremists who are very dangerous people. We talked about the need for us to make sure that the Afghan border is secure as best as possible; Pakistan has made a very strong commitment to that. I told the Prime Minister that the ed States is committed to helping the Afghan democracy succeed, which is in Pakistan's interest. After all, the Prime Minister wants there to be a peaceful country on his border.The U.S., I repeat, respects the sovereignty of this democracy. And we also appreciate the Prime Minister's strong words against the extremists and terrorists who not only would do us harm but have harmed people inside -- in Pakistan.So we welcome you here, Mr. Prime Minister, and looking forward to having a good lunch with you after your statement.PRIME MINISTER GILLANI: Thank you. Now?PRESIDENT BUSH: Please, yes, absolutely.PRIME MINISTER GILLANI: First of all, I want to thank Mr. President Bush for inviting me to ed States, and this is my second meeting with the President. Previously I met Mr. President in Sharm el Sheikh, and today again I am meeting Mr. President.And I appreciate what he has said about supporting democracy, supporting sovereignty, looking after the interests and on a lot of other areas we are -- there's a cooperation between us -- Pakistan, ed States have very cordial relations and bilateral relations. And this is not of today -- this is for over 60 years since the creation of Pakistan. We were inspired with their slogan of liberty and self-determination. And now we want to further improve our relations.We are committed to fight against those extremists and terrorists who are destroying and making the world not safe. And that is -- this is our own war; this is a war which is against Pakistan. And we'll fight for our own past. And that is because I have lost my own leader, Benazir Bhutto, because of the militants, and therefore I assure ed States, the people of ed States, that majority of the people of Pakistan and the people of those areas, the NWFP and FATA, they are the patriarch, the loyalists, they want the peace in the world, and they want to cooperate. And there are few militants -- they are hand-picked people, militants, who are disturbing this peace. And I assured Mr. President we'll work together for democracy and for the prosperity and peace of the world. Thank you very much.PRESIDENT BUSH: Thank you, sir.200807/45136Transcript of Prime Minister's broadcast on education - 17 November 2000 How well our children do at school is vital, of course, to the youngsters themselves and their families. A good start at school, a good education, makes a huge difference to children's chances in later life. But the quality of education our children receive also matters to the country as a whole - because our future economic success and prosperity depends on it. In this new century, more than ever before, the raw material that counts is the talent and skills of our people. So to succeed, we need to make sure that everyone gets the chance to make the most of that potential. It's for these reasons that we made education our number one priority. And we have backed that pledge with record and sustained investment. It is investment which can only be afforded now and in future years because of the tough decisions taken to bring long-term stability to our economy. The importance of education to our children and our country is why I was so pleased this week to hear of the steady progress taking place in our secondary schools. The latest performance tables highlight the continued and welcome improvements in overall standards. It's particularly good news that we have seen better than average improvements in secondary schools in some of our inner-city areas. Many inner city schools now have programmes for bright children, extra staff to cope with those with problems and more backing to improve discipline. And they show how the policies that David Blunkett has targeted at those communities with some of the greatest problems, are paying off. But while I'm pleased that Government policies are playing their part in these improvements, the real hard work has been done by the pupils, parents and, of course, teachers. It's the thousands of dedicated teachers, day in day out in classrooms up and down the country, who are making the difference. And these results show just what can be achieved by committed teachers and their pupils, supported by effective national strategies and investment. The results also build on the dramatic improvements we have aly seen in our primary schools. Here the introduction of the numeracy and literacy hours have helped teachers ensure their pupils have a better grip on the basics. So successful have these dedicated lessons proved - and so popular have they proved with teachers - that we are now extending them to the early years in secondary schools. They will particularly help those children who leave primary school without reaching the standards in ing, writing and maths expected for their age. pound;82 million more has been allocated by David Blunkett, whose leadership has played such a vital role in improving standards, to give secondary teachers the support and the tools they need to adapt the literacy and numeracy strategies for their pupils. Our secondary schools then can improve just like our primary schools. So, pupils, parents and teachers have real reason for pride. But there's no room for complacency. We need to keep improving standards. We need to keep working so that the standards in our best comprehensive schools - like Thomas Telford School in Shropshire where every pupil achieved five or more A* to C grades in their GCSE exams last year - become the norm. We've aly greatly expanded specialist schools like this. Within four years, nearly 30 per cent of all secondaries will have a specialism in technology, languages, arts and sports. We need to keep working so that the progress witnessed in these schools - whose results are improving at 50 per cent more than the average level - then help drive up standards across all secondaries. Pupils can't bring about these improvements on their own. Nor can teachers, parents or the Government. It needs us all to continue working together to deliver the results we want. It's important we succeed - for the future of our children and for our country. 200705/13285

  President Bush Attends Reopening of the National Museum of American HistoryTHE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Laura and I are thrilled to be here. We are honored you would invite us to reopen one of the country's great civic institutions -- the Smithsonian's Museum of American History. This building is home to many of our national treasures. It is a reminder of our country's proud heritage. And today we're witnessing the beginning of an exciting new era in its history. And I would urge all our citizens who come to Washington, D.C.: Come to this fantastic place of learning. Wayne, thank you for serving; proud to be with you. Roger Sant, the Chair of the Smithsonian Institute's Board of Regents, and Vicki. I appreciate Brent Glass, the Director. I want to thank Dirk Kempthorne -- Mr. Secretary, thank you for being here. Jonathan Scharfen, Acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, as well as Congressman [sic] Doris Matsui from California. I want to thank Governor Martin O'Malley of the great state of Maryland for coming here today. I am honored to be with Judy Woodruff, the esteemed Master of Ceremony -- Mistress of Ceremony, MC. I thank David McCullough for joining us -- a great historian and a fine American. Ever since President James K. Polk laid the Smithsonian's cornerstone in 1847, it has been one of our nation's greatest centers of knowledge. And since it opened nearly 45 years ago, the Museum of American History has been one of the Smithsonian's most popular institutions. The items on display here are as diverse as our nation. Visitors can see George Washington's military uniform, one of Thomas Edison's early lightbulbs, the desk on which Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence -- even Muhammad Ali's boxing gloves, which he modestly predicted would become the most famous thing in this building. (Laughter.) Another item on display here is one of our nation's proudest symbols of patriotism. The icon's fame dates to the war of 1812. In that conflict, the British Navy bombarded Baltimore's Fort McHenry with rockets and mortar fire. And as the battle raged, a young American was detained on a ship in Baltimore Harbor, unable to join the fight. The next morning, he was anxious to see whether his country had resisted the invasion. He discovered the answer when he saw the stars and stripes of the ed States waving defiantly above Fort McHenry. That young American, of course, was Francis Scott Key. He referred to the moment he saw the flag as an "hour of deliverance and joyful triumph." He recorded those emotions in a poem called "The Star-Spangled Banner." Today, nearly two centuries after they were composed, his words are written on the heart of every American -- and written into our law as our country's national anthem. And the flag that inspired them is preserved here, thanks to the generosity of some fine citizens, to remind us of the sacrifices that have been made to ensure our freedom. There have been hours in our nation's history when that promise of freedom looked uncertain. One of them took place 145 years ago today, when President Abraham Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to dedicate a cemetery at one of the Civil War's bloodiest battlefields. By that day, the war had raged for more than two and a half years, and claimed hundreds of thousands of casualties. Many were convinced that a peace that preserved slavery would be better than a war that was pitting brother against brother. President Lincoln understood that liberty is a gift given by the Almighty -- and that peace must not be purchased with injustice. That day, President Lincoln called the nation together in the pursuit of "a new birth of freedom." He urged Americans to honor the dead by carrying out the cause for which they gave their lives. With only 10 sentences, he strengthened the bonds of our Union -- and rededicated our nation to the proposition that all men are created equal. At the time, President Lincoln said that the world would "little note, nor long remember" his words. The verdict of history has been quite different. Over the years, the Gettysburg Address has been memorized by generations of schoolchildren -- including me and Laura -- stands as the greatest presidential speech of all time. Nearly 50 years, one of the only handwritten copies of this speech has been kept at the White House. For the next several weeks, it will be on display here at the Museum of American History. And Laura and I are delighted that this important piece of our country's heritage will be available for all to see. Among those inspired by the principles in the Gettysburg Address were four African American college students in Greensboro, North Carolina. In 1960, they sat at a lunch counter inside a Woolworth's department store and asked to be served. Their request was denied -- because the counter was designated as "whites only." When they were asked to leave, those brave students refused to give up their seats. The single act of courage helped power a national movement that culminated with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And today, that lunch counter is preserved here at the Smithsonian -- in an honored location just down the hall from the Gettysburg Address. In the lives of Francis Scott Key, Abraham Lincoln, and those brave students in Greensboro, we see the best of America. We see men and women of character who refused to surrender to adversity. We see hope, courage, and a devotion to universal values. And we see a nation constantly moving toward greater freedom and greater opportunity. Throughout our history, these ideals have called out to those beyond our shores. They have beckoned those who love liberty from every nation. They have made countless generations of men and women across the world long for the pride that comes with calling yourself an American citizen. Today, I'm delighted to congratulate five of you who will be taking your oath of citizenship in just a few moments. Though you are originally from France, Germany, Guyana, Lebanon, and Peru, today you're becoming members of the American family. We welcome you with open arms. I will be proud to call you fellow citizen. The Museum of American History is a wonderful place to begin your journey as an American. These halls reflect both the duties and privileges of citizenship. They remind us that America's highest ideals have always required brave defenders. They remind us that our liberty is a precious gift from God. Thank you for having Laura and me here. May God continue to bless the ed States of America. (Applause.) 200811/56650

  President Bush Discusses FISA   THE PRESIDENT: Last month House leaders declared that they needed 21 additional days to pass legislation giving our intelligence professionals the tools they need to protect America. That deadline passed last Saturday without any action from the House.   This week House leaders are finally bringing legislation to the floor. Unfortunately, instead of holding a vote on the good bipartisan bill that passed the ed States Senate, they introduced a partisan bill that would undermine America's security. This bill is unwise. The House leaders know that the Senate will not pass it. And even if the Senate did pass it, they know I will veto it.   Yesterday the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence sent a leader [sic] to the Speaker explaining why the bill is dangerous to our national security. They cited a number of serious flaws in the bill, including the following:   First, the House bill could reopen dangerous intelligence gaps by putting in place a cumbersome court approval process that would make it harder to collect intelligence on foreign terrorists. This is an approach that Congress explicitly rejected last August when bipartisan majorities in both houses passed the Protect America Act. And it is an approach the Senate rejected last month when it passed a new -- new legislation to extend and strengthen the Protect America Act by an overwhelming vote of 68 to 29.   Now House leaders are proposing to undermine this consensus. Their partisan legislation would extend protections we enjoy as Americans to foreign terrorists overseas. It would cause us to lose vital intelligence on terrorist threats, and it is a risk that our country cannot afford to take. (%bk%)  Second, the House bill fails to provide liability protection to companies believed to have assisted in protecting our nation after the 9/11 attacks. Instead, the House bill would make matters even worse by allowing litigation to continue for years. In fact, House leaders simply adopted the position that class action trial lawyers are taking in the multi-billion-dollar lawsuits they have filed. This litigation would undermine the private sector's willingness to cooperate with the intelligence community, cooperation that is absolutely essential to protecting our country from harm. This litigation would require the disclosure of state secrets that could lead to the public release of highly classified information that our enemies could use against us. And this litigation would be unfair, because any companies that assisted us after 9/11 were assured by our government that their cooperation was legal and necessary.   Companies that may have helped us save lives should be thanked for their patriotic service, not subjected to billion-dollar lawsuits that will make them less willing to help in the future. The House bill may be good for class action trial lawyers, but it would be terrible for the ed States.   Third, the House bill would establish yet another commission to examine past intelligence activities. This would be a redundant and partisan exercise that would waste our intelligence officials' time and taxpayers' money.   The bipartisan House and Senate intelligence and judiciary committees have aly held numerous oversight hearings on the government's intelligence activities. It seems that House leaders are more interested in investigating our intelligence professionals than in giving them the tools they need to protect us. Congress should stop playing politics with the past and focus on helping us prevent terrorist attacks in the future. (%bk%)  Members of the House should not be deceived into thinking that voting for this unacceptable legislation would somehow move the process along. Voting for this bill does not move the process along. Instead, voting for this bill would make our country less safe because it would move us further away from passing the good bipartisan Senate bill that is needed to protect America.   The American people understand the stakes in this struggle. They want their children to be safe from terror. Congress has done little in the three weeks since the last recess, and they should not leave for their Easter recess without getting the Senate bill to my desk.   Thank you. 200806/40959

  I send greetings to those observing Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is the celebration of African culture, community, and family traditions. For more than 40 years, millions of people have come together to reaffirm Nguzo Saba, the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa. These principles emphasize unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. As people across our country gather to commemorate this seven-day celebration, may we all be reminded that Kwanzaa is an opportunity to celebrate the many contributions of our African American citizens. Laura and I send our best wishes for a joyous Kwanzaa. GEORGE W. BUSH 200812/59675

  REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT AT TOWN HALLTHE PRESIDENT: Hello, North Carolina! (Applause.) Thank you so much. All right, please, everybody have a seat. I am so excited to be back in Raleigh, to be back in North Carolina. (Applause.) This is a community and a state that has been so good to me. (Applause.) And I know that part of the reason is because I travel with one of your home boys, Reggie Love. (Applause.) But I hope it's more than that.A couple of people I want to acknowledge very quickly. First of all, I just want to thank Sara Coleman for the wonderful introduction. Give her a great round of applause. (Applause.) She brought me a Cupcake Factory teeshirt -- (laughter) -- but no cupcakes. (Laughter.) I mean, I know I've been talking about health care a lot, but I think cupcakes are good for your health. (Laughter.) So, next time.I also want to acknowledge the Broughton High School Jazz Ensemble. (Applause.) I want to thank Gardner Taylor for the invocation -- (applause) -- Tom Gill for the Pledge of Allegiance -- (applause) -- Chelsea Cole for the National Anthem -- (applause) -- Del Burns, our Wake County Public Schools Superintendent. (Applause.)I want to thank Stephen Mares, the Broughton High School principal. (Applause.) I want to thank your own Governor, Bev Perdue, who is here. (Applause.) Unfortunately, Senator Kay Hagan, Senator Richard Burr, and Congressman Brad Miller can't be here because they're all working hard in Washington. Give them a big round of applause. (Applause.)We also have the Raleigh Mayor, Charles Meeker, is here. Where's Charles? There he is, right here. (Applause.) We've got the Speaker of the House right here. Give them a big round of applause. (Applause.) I hear that the former governor, Jim Hunt, is in the hall -- right? (Applause.)There are a lot of elected officials, I'm starting to get into trouble. (Laughter.) So I'm going to stop there and just say thank you to all of them for their outstanding service.It is not only great to be back in Raleigh, it is also nice to get out of Washington. (Laughter.) With all the noise and the fussing and the fighting that goes on, it's pretty easy for the voices of everyday people to get lost, and for folks to forget why they're there.So when I took office in January, I asked to receive 10 letters -- to see 10 letters from people across the country every day. They're just selected by the mail room. We get about 40,000 letters a day; they send me about 10 a day, and I through them. And some of them are heartbreaking, people talking about the tough times they're going through; some of them are inspiring. Most of the letters these days are about one thing, and that's the economy. So this is a town hall meeting, but before I take your questions, I want to spend a few minutes just talking about where we are and where we need to go on the economy.I don't know whether you've seen the latest cover of Newsweek magazine on the rack at the grocery store, but the cover says, "The Recession is Over." Now, I imagine that you might have found the news a little startling. (Laughter.) I know I did. Here is what's true. We have stopped the freefall. The market is up and the financial system is no longer on the verge of collapse. (Applause.) That's true. We're losing jobs at half the rate we were when I took office six months ago. (Applause.) We just saw home prices rise for the first time in three years, so there's no doubt that things have gotten better. (Applause.)We may be seeing the beginning of the end of the recession. But that's little comfort if you're one of the folks who have lost their job and haven't found another. Unemployment in North Carolina is over 10 percent today. A lot of small businesses like Sara's are still struggling with falling revenue and rising costs. Health care premiums, for example, are rising twice as fast as wages, and much more for small businesses -- something that I'll talk about a little bit later. So we know the tough times aren't over. But we also know that without the steps we have aly taken, our troubled economy -- and the pain it's inflicting on North Carolina families -- would be much worse.So let's look at the facts. When my administration came into office, we were facing the worst economy of our lifetimes. We were losing an average of 700,000 jobs per month. It was nearly impossible to take out a home loan or an auto loans or a student loan and loans for small business to buy inventory and make payroll. And economists across the ideological spectrum -- conservatives and liberals -- were fearing the second coming of a Great Depression.At the time, there were some who thought doing nothing was somehow an option. I disagreed. We knew that some action was required. We knew that ending our immediate economic crisis would require ending the housing crisis where it began, or at least slowing down the pace of foreclosures. That's why we took unprecedented action to stem the sp of foreclosures by helping responsible homeowners stay in their homes and pay their mortgages. We didn't stop every foreclosure; wouldn't help every single homeowner who had gotten overextended. But folks who could make their payments with a little bit of help, we were able to keep them in their homes.Ending this immediate crisis also required taking steps to avert the collapse of our financial system, which, as Federal Chairman Bernanke said the other day, was a real possibility. Now, let me just say this about banks. I know it didn't seem fair to many Americans to use tax dollars to stabilize banks that took reckless risks and helped to cause this problem in the first place. It didn't seem fair to me, either. And even though the bank bailout began under the previous administration, and I wasn't always happy with the lack of accountability when it was first begun, I do believe that it was actually necessary to step in, because by unlocking frozen credit markets and opening up loans for families and businesses, we helped stop a recession from becoming a depression. And by the way, taxpayers are aly being paid back by the banks -- with interest.We also took steps to help a struggling auto industry emerge from a crisis largely of its own making. Again, some folks thought, why are we doing that? There was a strong argument to let General Motors and Chrysler go under, and I know many of you probably share that view. And if we had been in ordinary times - not teetering on the brink of depression -- we might have exercised other options, because if you make a series of bad decisions that undermine your company's viability, the folks back here, they probably wouldn't get bailed out, your company wouldn't be in business. And many folks didn't see why these companies should be treated any differently. But in the midst of a recession, their collapse would have wreaked even worse havoc across our economy. So I said if GM and Chrysler were willing to do what was necessary to make themselves competitive, and if taxpayers were repaid every dime they put on the line, it was a process worth supporting. We saved hundreds of thousands of jobs as a result. And we expect to get our money back. Now, even as we worked to address the crisis in our banking sector, in our housing market, in our auto industry -- and by the way, there was a flu that came by during that process -- (laughter) -- we also began attacking our economic crisis on a broader front. Less than one month after taking office we enacted the most sweeping economic recovery package in history. And by the way, we did so -- (applause) -- we did so without any earmarks or wasteful pork barrel projects, pet projects, that we've become accustomed to. Not one was in there. (Applause.) Now, there's a lot of misinformation about the Recovery Act or the stimulus, whatever you want to call it. So let me just lay out the facts, because I think some folks are confused. As I was driving in, everybody was -- there were some folks cheering and then were some folks with signs. (Laughter.) So I hope they're paying attention, because I want to make sure everybody understands exactly what the Recovery Act was all about.To date, roughly a quarter of the Recovery Act's funding has been committed; over 30,000 projects have been approved; thousands have been posted online, as part of an effort to uphold the highest standards of transparency and accountability when it comes to our economic Recovery Act.Now, the Recovery Act is divided into three parts. And I know a lot of people think, oh, this is just blown-up government and wasting money. Let me describe exactly where this money went, just so if your friends or neighbors talk to you, you can give them the right information. One-third of the entire Recovery Act is for tax relief for you, for families and small businesses -- one-third of it. (Applause.) Ninety-five percent of you got a tax cut. You may not notice it -- (laughter) -- because it's appearing in your paycheck on a weekly -- every time you get a paycheck, as opposed to you getting a lump sum. Because it turned out that by sping it out, it had more of a potential to stimulate the economy. That's what the economists advised us to do. But a third of it is going to tax breaks, to individuals and small businesses. That's money in your pocket to buy cupcakes and other necessities of life. (Laughter.)So for Americans struggling to pay rising bills with shrinking wages, we have kept a campaign promise to put a middle class tax cut in the pockets of 95 percent of working families -- that began showing up in your paycheck about three months ago. (Applause.) We also cut taxes for small businesses on the investments that they make.So just remember this, one-third of it -- if you think about the recovery, it was a little under 0 billion -- a third of it went to tax cuts. And all those folks who are complaining about growing government and all that stuff -- we are actually cutting your taxes; giving your money back so you can spend it. That's a third.Another third of the money in the Recovery Act is for emergency relief that is helping folks who've borne the brunt of this recession. For Americans who were laid off, we expanded unemployment benefits -- a measure that's aly made a difference for 12 million Americans. (Applause.) So we extended unemployment insurance; that's made a difference in 12 million Americans, including 300,000 folks here in North Carolina who would have been cut off from unemployment insurance if we hadn't extended it. (Applause.) We're making health insurance 65 percent cheaper for families who were relying on COBRA while looking for work. (Applause.) So let me just see a show of hands. How many people know what COBRA is? All right. So you know that if you lose your job, you're allowed to keep your health insurance by paying premiums through COBRA. Here's the problem: If you've lost your job and your premium is ,000 right at a time when you've got no job, it's hard to come up with that money, right? So what we did in the recovery package was to say, we're going to give -- 65 percent of those costs we will pick up so that you can keep your health insurance while you're looking for a job. (Applause.)And for states who were facing historic budget shortfalls -- I was just talking to the Governor and the Speaker. We provided assistance that has saved the jobs of tens of thousands of teachers and police officers and firefighters. (Applause.) So that's the second third. I just want to remind everybody: first third, tax cuts; second third was providing emergency relief to families who had lost their jobs, for their insurance, and to support them with unemployment insurance, and states that otherwise would have billions of dollars in shortfalls. Now, that's two-thirds of the money of the Recovery Act. And if we hadn't put that in place, imagine the situation that people would be going through right now. It would be a lot worse, and the states would be going through a lot tougher times, having to make cuts that they don't want to make. 07/79560
