President Bush Delivers Commencement Address at ed States Air Force Academy   THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Mr. Secretary, thank you for the kind introduction. General Moseley, General Regni; Mr. Congressman, thank you. Academy staff and faculty, distinguished guests, and proud family members. I am so pleased to stand before the future leaders of the ed States Air Force.   I have something I'd like to say to the Cadet Wing: Class of 2008! (Applause.) Yes, that's good. I was a little worried you we're going to yell: "Give him the Bird!" (Laughter.)   You're the 50th graduating class in the history of the Air Force Academy. Each of you has worked hard to reach this moment. You survived "Beast," "Terazzo Sailing" -- (applause) -- "fatty bags" at Mitch's. (Laughter.) You earned your "prop and wings" at Pinnacle -- (applause) -- and today you will receive your degree and commission as Air Force officers. Your teachers are proud of you, your parents are proud of you -- and so is your Commander-in-Chief. Job well done. (Applause.)   The Superintendent informs me that some of you are still on restriction. (Laughter.) It might be because you were caught running from the "Lightning Van." (Laughter.) Or it might be because of Jimmy Chad's apple. (Laughter and applause.) Whatever the reason you got your Form-10, help has arrived. In keeping with longstanding tradition, I hereby absolve all cadets who are on restriction for minor conduct offenses. (Applause.) As for your grades, well, some things are even beyond the powers of the President. (Laughter.)   In becoming officers of the ed States Air Force, you have chosen a vocation that is both hazardous and rewarding. As a former F-102 pilot, I know the exhilaration of flight. As the son of an aviator who was shot down in combat, I know its perils. Whether you serve in the skies above or on the ground below, each of you has stepped forward to defend your country. You've chosen to face danger in foreign lands so your fellow citizens do not have to face danger in our own land. And I want to thank you for making this courageous choice. And all of America is grateful to the Class of 2008. (Applause.) (%bk%)  When you put on your Second Lieutenant bars in a few moments, you will become part of a great history -- a history that is still only beginning to unfold. By any standard, air power is still a relatively new phenomena. Men have been fighting on land and at sea for thousands of years -- yet there are still Americans among us who were born before man ever flew. In the lifetime of one generation, our nation has seen aviation progress from that first tentative liftoff at Kitty Hawk to an age of supersonic flight and space exploration.   And as flight has progressed it changed the face of war. In the 20th century, air power helped make possible freedom's victory in great ideological struggles with fascism and communism. In those struggles, our nation faced evil men with territorial ambitions and totalitarian aims, who murdered the innocent to achieve their political objectives. Through a combination of military strength and national resolve, and faith in the power of freedom, we defeated these adversaries -- and secured the peace for millions across the world.   And now, in the 21st century, our nation is once again contending with an ideology that seeks to sow anger and hatred and despair -- the ideology of Islamic extremism. In today's struggle, we are once again facing evil men who despise freedom, and despise America, and aim to subject millions to their violent rule. And once again, our nation is called to defeat these adversaries -- and secure the peace for millions across the world. And once again, our enemies will be no match for the men and women of the ed States Air Force. (Applause.)   You know, what's remarkable about this class is that each of you knows the stakes in the war on terror. You applied to this Academy after seeing the attacks of September the 11th, 2001. You came to this Academy knowing that the responsibility of our military is to protect the American people. And you now leave this Academy to take your place in this great struggle. Today, I've come to talk to you about the battle you're about to join, the lessons we can learn from the conflicts of the past, and what they can teach us about the challenges we face in the war on terror that will dominate your military careers. (%bk%)  The first lesson is this: In both the 20th century and today, defeating hateful ideologies requires all elements of national power, including the use of military power. The military power that you will wield in your military careers is much more precise and effective than in past generations. When the ed States entered World War II, the age of long-range bombing was just beginning. There were no computer guidance, no GPS targeting, or laser-guided munitions. The allied bombing raids against Germany and Japan resulted in horrific civilian casualties and widesp destruction. It took nearly four years before the regimes in Berlin and Tokyo finally capitulated -- with difficult battles from the deserts of North Africa to the forests of France, to the islands of the Pacific.   Today, revolutionary advances in technology are transforming warfare. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, for example, we employed military capabilities so precise that coalition air crews could take out a tank hiding under a bridge without damaging the bridge. With this military technology, we can now target a regime without targeting an entire nation. We've removed two cruel regimes in weeks instead of years. In Afghanistan, coalition forces and their Afghan allies drove the Taliban from power in less than two months. In Iraq, with the help of the ed States Air Force, our troops raced across 350 miles of enemy territory to liberate Baghdad in less than one month -- one of the fastest armored advances in military history.   These facts create both opportunities and challenges. One opportunity is that, if we have to fight our enemies, we can now do so with greater precision and greater humanity. In the age of advanced weapons, we can better strike -- we can better target strikes against regimes and individual terrorists. Sadly, there will be civilian casualties in war. But with these advances, we can work toward this noble goal: defeating the enemies of freedom while sparing the lives of many more innocent people -- which creates another opportunity, and that is, by making war more precise, we can make war less likely.   For hostile dictators, it is a powerful deterrent to know that America is willing and able to target their regimes directly. When rulers know we can strike their regime while sparing their populations, they realize they cannot hide behind the innocent -- and that means they are less likely to start conflicts in the first place.(%bk%)   Our unmatched military power also creates challenges. Because no adversary can confront and defeat our military directly, the enemies of the 21st century will increasingly turn to the use of asymmetric warfare. We've seen this in Afghanistan and Iraq. In those countries, our adversaries did not lay down their arms after the regime had been removed. Instead, they blended into the civilian population and -- with the help of stateless terrorist networks -- continued the fight through suicide bombings and attacks on innocent people. In the 21st century, this nation must be prepared to fight this new kind of warfare.   To meet this new challenge, we need to continue to develop technologies that put unprecedented speed and precision and power in your hands. And that's what we're doing. Since 2002, the number of unmanned aerial vehicles in our arsenal has increased nearly 40-fold to more than 5,000 -- and we're increasing them even more. We've transformed the Special Operations Command and more than doubled its budget. We're improving our intelligence and surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. We're transforming our ground forces for the wars of the 21st century -- making them faster and more agile and more lethal.   And you'll see the impact of these changes in your own Air Force careers. Instead of serving at 10,000 feet, some of you will serve on the ground as battlefield airmen -- deploying behind enemy lines and using laser technology to fix targets for aviators circling above. Instead of sitting in jet fighter cockpits, some of you will sit before computer consoles at bases here in the ed States, where you'll guide Predator UAVs half a world away and use them to strike terrorist hideouts. These and other changes will increase your ability to prevail in asymmetric warfare. They will make you more effective in the defense of freedom. (%bk%)  Another challenge of asymmetric warfare is that it requires patience. Our new enemies know they can't defeat us militarily. So their strategy is to cause us to lose our nerve and retreat before the job is done. They take advantage of the information age and the 24-hour news cycles, creating images of chaos and suffering for the cameras, in the hope that these images will horrify the American people and undermine resolve and morale here at home. This means that to win the first war of the 21st century, we need to prevail not just in the battle of arms, but also in the battle of wills. And we need to recognize that the only way America can lose the war on terror is if we defeat ourselves. (Applause.)   The second lesson is this: In both the 20th century and today, defeating hateful ideologies requires using our national resources to strengthen free institutions in countries that are fighting extremists. We must help these nations govern their territorial -- territory effectively so they can deny safe haven to our common enemies. And in Afghanistan and Iraq, where we removed regimes that threatened our people, we have a special obligation to help these nations build free and just societies that are strong partners in the fight against these extremists and terrorists.   We've assumed this obligation before. After World War II, we helped Germany and Japan build free societies and strong economies. These efforts took time and patience, and as a result, Germany and Japan grew in freedom and prosperity. Germany and Japan, once mortal enemies, are now allies of the ed States. And people across the world have reaped the benefits from that alliance. Today, we must do the same in Afghanistan and Iraq. By helping these young democracies grow in freedom and prosperity, we'll lay the foundation of peace for generations to come. 200806/41821The President, speaking at the National Institute of Health, explains how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will spur research and create jobs in the medical field.

You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all–in which case, you fail by default.Failure gave me an inner security that I had never attained by passing examinations. Failure taught me things about myself that I could have learned no other way. I discovered that I had a strong will, and more discipline than I had suspected; I also found out that I had friends whose value was truly above rubies.The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more to me than any qualification I ever earned.Given a time machine or a Time Turner, I would tell my 21-year-old self that personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a check-list of acquisition or achievement. Your qualifications, your CV, are not your life, though you will meet many people of my age and older who confuse the two. Life is difficult, and complicated, and beyond anyone's total control, and the humility to know that will enable you to survive its vicissitudes.You might think that I chose my second theme, the importance of imagination, because of the part it played in rebuilding my life, but that is not wholly so. Though I will defend the value of bedtime stories to my last gasp, I have learned to value imagination in a much broader sense. Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.One of the greatest formative experiences of my life preceded Harry Potter, though it informed much of what I subsequently wrote in those books. This revelation came in the form of one of my earliest day jobs. Though I was sloping off to write stories during my lunch hours, I paid the rent in my early 20s by working in the research department at Amnesty International's headquarters in London.There in my little office I hastily scribbled letters smuggled out of totalitarian regimes by men and women who were risking imprisonment to inform the outside world of what was happening to them. I saw photographs of those who had disappeared without trace, sent to Amnesty by their desperate families and friends. I the testimony of torture victims and saw pictures of their injuries. I opened handwritten, eye-witness accounts of summary trials and executions, of kidnappings and rapes.07/79497

[Nextpage视频演讲]The President praises Congress for passing a financial reform package that brings new accountability to Wall Street and helps provide economic security to individuals, families and businesses.Download mp4 (68MB) | mp3 (7MB) [Nextpage演讲文本]THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. With today’s vote in the Senate, the ed States Congress has now passed a Wall Street reform bill that will bring greater economic security to families and businesses across the country. It was clear from the moment it began that this recession was not the result of your typical economic downturn. It was the result of recklessness and irresponsibility in certain corners of Wall Street that infected the entire economy –- irresponsibility that cost millions of Americans their jobs, and millions more their hard-earned savings. It’s why businesses cannot get credit and why families haven’t been able to see appreciation in their home values -- in fact, the values of their homes have plummeted. Even before the financial crisis that led to this recession, I spoke on Wall Street about the need for common-sense reforms to protect consumers and our economy as a whole. But the crisis came, and only underscored the need for the kind of reform the Senate passed today -- reform that will protect consumers when they take out a mortgage or sign up for a credit card; reform that will prevent the kind of shadowy deals that led to this crisis; reform that would never again put taxpayers on the hook for Wall Street’s mistakes. The reform that Congress passed today will accomplish these goals. It is a bill that was made possible first and foremost by the tireless efforts of Chairman Chris Dodd and Congressman and Chairman Barney Frank, as well as the leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. I am extraordinarily grateful for their determination in the face of a massive lobbying effort from the financial industry, and I’m also grateful for all of the members of Congress who stood on the side of reform -- including three Republican senators who put politics and partisanship aside today to vote for this bill. The financial industry is central to our nation’s ability to grow, to prosper, to compete and to innovate. This reform will foster that innovation, not hamper it. It’s designed to make sure that everyone follows the same set of rules, so that firms compete on price and quality, not on tricks and traps. It demands accountability and responsibility from everybody. It provides certainty to everyone from bankers to farmers to business owners to consumers. And unless your business model depends on cutting corners or bilking your customers, you have nothing to fear from this reform. For all those Americans who are wondering what Wall Street reform means for you, here’s what you should expect. If you’ve ever applied for a credit card, a student loan, a mortgage, you know the feeling of signing your name to pages of barely understandable fine print. It’s a big step for most families, and one that’s often filled with unnecessary confusion and apprehension. As a result, many Americans are simply duped into hidden fees and loans they just can’t afford by companies who know exactly what they’re doing. Those days will soon end. From now on, every American will be empowered with the clear and concise information you need to make financial decisions that are best for you. This bill will crack down on abusive practices and unscrupulous mortgage lenders. It will reinforce the new credit card law we passed banning unfair rate hikes, and ensure that folks aren’t unwittingly caught by overdraft fees when they sign up for a checking account. It will give students who take out college loans clear information and make sure lenders don’t cheat the system. And it will ensure that every American receives a free credit score if they are denied a loan or insurance because of that score. All told, this reform puts in place the strongest consumer financial protections in history, and it creates a new consumer watchdog to enforce those protections. Because of this reform, the American people will never again be asked to foot the bill for Wall Street’s mistakes. There will be no more taxpayer-funded bailouts -- period. If a large financial institution should ever fail, this reform gives us the ability to wind it down without endangering the broader economy. And there will be new rules to end the perception that any firm is “too big to fail,” so that we don’t have another Lehman Brothers or AIG. Because of reform, the kind of complex, backroom deals that helped trigger this financial crisis will finally be brought into the light of day. And from now on, shareholders and other executives can know that shareholders will have greater say on the pay of CEOs, so that they can reward success instead of failure, and help change the perverse incentives that encouraged so much reckless risk-taking in the past. In short, Wall Street reform will bring greater security to folks on Main Street -- to families who are looking to buy their first home or send their kids to college; to taxpayers who shouldn’t have to pay for somebody else’s mistakes or irresponsibility; to small businesses, community banks and credit unions who play by the rules; to shareholders and investors who want to see their companies grow and thrive.Now, aly, the Republican leader in the House has called for repeal of this reform. I would suggest that America can’t afford to go backwards, and I think that’s how most Americans feel as well. We can’t afford another financial crisis just as we’re digging out from the last one.I said when I took office we can’t simply rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand -- on maxed-out credit cards, houses used like ATM machines, or overleveraged firms on Wall Street. We need to rebuild on a firmer, stronger foundation for economic growth. That’s why we invested in renewable energy that’s currently creating new jobs all across America. That’s why we’re reforming our education system so that our workers can compete in the global economy. That’s why we passed health reform that will lower costs for families and businesses. And that’s why I’m about to sign Wall Street reform into law -- to protect consumers and lay the foundation for a stronger and safer financial system -- one that is innovative, creative, competitive, and far less prone to panic and collapse. Along with the steps we’re taking to spur innovation, encourage hiring and rein in our deficits, this is how we’re ultimately going to build an economy that is stronger and more prosperous than it was before, and one that provides opportunity for all Americans. Thanks very much.Q Sir, are you encouraged that the oil has stopped flowing in the Gulf?THE PRESIDENT: I think it is a positive sign. We’re still in the testing phase. I’ll have more to say about it tomorrow. END 4:50 P.M.

  Hello, everyone. I hope you’re having a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend. I’ve got some good news for us today. Not only is our economy overall growing, but one of the important sectors of our economy is on the rise again: the American automobile industry. Just a few days ago, on Tuesday, Chrysler Corporation announced that they were repaying the taxpayers for the loans we gave them when we came into office.And this announcement came six years ahead of schedule – and just two years after Chrysler Corporation emerged from bankruptcy. You know, and it’s a sign of what’s happening throughout the American automobile industry.It’s not just Chrysler. Also this week, GM announced that its Detroit Hamtramck factory will run three shifts for the first time its 26-year history. You know, that’s 2,500 more good, paying jobs.In the words of Don LaForest, of the UAW – and I want to e him – he said, “It’s mind-boggling that we can go from near-extinction to full employment in two years.”What you didn’t get to hear in my rendition of his e is the tone of his voice: It was full of pride. Genuine pride. Because I can tell you he knows – as my dad used to say - that a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about dignity. It’s about respect.And I heard the same pride, and the same feeling of dignity, when I called the Jefferson North Chrysler plant in Detroit the day Chrysler paid back its debt. I talked to a UAW worker – her name was Frances – a line worker, who said her dad had worked on that line before, and that she had been out of work for two-and-a-half years before she was hired a year ago back to the plant.I got the same sense when I went to Bonneville and Son, a Chrysler dealership in Manchester, New Hampshire a couple days ago. 85 employees came out, stood out there in the lot with me. 85 people. All of whom knew and said, had Chrysler liquidated, had we not helped them, they wouldn’t have a job. When President Obama and I came into office, we faced an auto industry on the brink of extinction. Total collapse.At the time, many people thought the President should just let GM and Chrysler go under. They didn’t think the automobile industry was essential to America’s future.The President disagreed – and, in addition, he wasn’t willing to walk away from the thousands of hardworking UAW members who worked at GM and Chrysler – and in many cases, not only all their lives, but as second and third generation employees. And he certainly wasn’t going to abandon an industry that had meant so much to our economy, and so much to so many for so long.So, he said if GM and Chrysler, and their management, and all their shareholders were willing to do the difficult work of making themselves more competitive, we would support giving them another chance.And because of what we did, the auto industry is rising again. Manufacturing is coming back. And our economy is recovering and it’s gaining traction.But the thing is this: even for a lot of people with jobs, their wages aren’t keeping pace with prices of everything from gas to groceries to health care and college tuition.That’s why the President and I remain focused on, not just recovering from this recession. We’re focused on making sure that if you work hard, play by the rules, you’ll be able to get ahead, put your kids through college, retire with dignity and security.Before I sign off, I just want to mention once again Memorial Day and remember what this holiday’s all about. You know – we still have thousands of troops deployed in harm’s way. In days past, on Memorial Day, we remembered heroes from former wars – but I think it’s absolutely essential that we all remember today that thousands of names have been added to those memorials in the wars that are still continuing. Folks, all I ask you to do is, what my wife Jill and Michelle Obama ask, to reach out to those families who have someone deployed, in your community. Let them know you know. Let them know you know the sacrifice they’re making. Engage in – as my wife would say – a single act of kindness.Maybe invite them to your barbecue this weekend. Mow their lawn. Offer to mow their lawn next week. Make it known that you appreciate their sacrifice and you’re willing to lend a hand.As I said, that’s what Jill and Michelle Obama are doing through their Joining Forces initiative. And that’s what I hope all of us will do every day as long as we have a man or woman deployed in harm’s way. Thank you for listening and enjoy the holiday.201105/138353


  ,115 – that’s the average premium for employer-sponsored family coverage per month in . Annually, that amounts to ,375 – or roughly the yearly income of someone working a minimum wage job. And if nothing is done to reform our broken health care system, a recent survey found that over the next ten years, out-of-pocket expenses for Americans with health insurance could increase 35 percent in every state in the country. This week -- in an effort to put the past year’s debate over health insurance reform into perspective -- we’re launching, “Health Reform by the Numbers,” an online campaign using key figures, like ,115, to raise awareness about why we just can’t wait for reform.

And, Judy, thanks for coming. She is from Many, Louisiana. She won the Women's Bassmaster. And Alton Jones from Waco, Texas, won the Bassmaster Classic.   And I thought it was important to welcome these champs here to the White House so that -- you know, to encourage people to fish. There's nothing better than fishing. I had a fantastic experience with Alton and our friend, Charlie Pack. He was a famous local fisherman. And he said, do you want to go fishing with a fellow named Jones? I said, I've never heard of him, there's a lot people named Jones. (Laughter.) It turns out the man I was fishing with is the -- wins the Bassmaster Classic.   This is a good, clean sport. It's a sport that requires good conservation in order to make sure our fisheries are good, and I love to welcome the champs here. And so we're glad you're here. The people of Louisiana and Texas are proud of you.   MR. JONES: Well, it's an honor to be here. You know, fishing with you, I've got to say that President Bush is actually a very good fisherman and a great conservationist. And I'm really not sure who's working who here. I'm hoping to get an invite to fish on his lake in Crawford, and he's looking for a free fishing guide. (Laughter.)   MS. WONG: I would be glad to take you any day on Toledo Bend.   THE PRESIDENT: That's good.   MS. WONG: And bring Laura, as well.   THE PRESIDENT: I'm a good fisherman; sometimes I'm a good catcher-man. (Laughter.)   MR. JONES: It's pretty good there --   THE PRESIDENT: Yes, there is. Anyway, thank you all for coming. 200806/41343

  THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Today I would like to talk to you about an urgent priority for our Nation: confronting the rising costs of health care.In my State of the Union Address, I invited Democrats and Republicans in Congress to work with my Administration to reform our health care system. In the past few weeks, I've discussed my health care proposals with citizens across our country. Next week, I'll visit a hospital in Tennessee to hear directly from people who do not have access to basic, affordable health insurance. I'll also meet with a panel of experts at the White House to discuss how we can build a vibrant market where individuals can buy their own health insurance. The problem with our current system is clear: health care costs are rising rapidly, more than twice as fast as wages. These rising costs are driving up the price of health insurance and making it harder for working families to afford coverage. These rising costs also make it harder for small businesses to offer health coverage to their employees. We must address these rising costs so that more Americans can afford basic private health insurance.One of the most promising ways to make private coverage more affordable and accessible is to reform the tax code. Today, the tax code unfairly penalizes people who do not get health insurance through their job. If you buy health insurance on your own, you pay much more after taxes than if you get it through your job. I proposed to end this unfair bias in the tax code by creating a standard tax deduction for every American who has health insurance, whether they get it through their job or on their own.For example, every family that has health insurance would get a ,000 deduction on their taxes. This deduction would also apply to payroll taxes, so that even those who pay no income taxes would benefit. Americans deserve a level playing field. If you're self-employed, a farmer, a rancher, or an employee at a small business who buys health insurance on your own, you should get the same tax advantage as those who get their health insurance through their job at a big business.At the same time, I proposed "Affordable Choices" grants to help states provide coverage for the uninsured. Governors across our country have put forward innovative ideas for health care reform. Under my proposal, states that make basic private health insurance available to all their citizens would receive Federal funds to help them provide this coverage to the poor and the sick. Next week, the Nation's governors will come to Washington to discuss challenges facing their states. I've asked my Secretary of Health and Human Services, Mike Leavitt, to meet with the governors and discuss ways we can work together to help reduce the number of uninsured Americans.Reforming health care is a bipartisan priority. Earlier this week, I was pleased to receive a letter from 10 senators -- five Democrats and five Republicans -- who expressed their desire to work together on health care reform. I look forward to discussing our proposals and hearing more about their ideas. I appreciate the commitment of this bipartisan group to work with my Administration, and I will continue to reach across party lines to enact common-sense health care reforms.From my conversations with Democrats and Republicans, it is clear both parties recognize that strengthening health care for all Americans is one of our most important responsibilities. I am confident that if we put politics aside, we can find practical ways to improve our private health care system, and help millions of Americans enjoy better care, new choices, and healthier lives.Thank you for listening. 200801/23693F,#.P2^M.t@LPW_sTeD_-u^Vj|LPTonight I want to discuss the importance of the television news medium to the American people. No nation depends more on the intelligent judgment of its citizens. No medium has a more profound influence over public opinion. Nowhere in our system are there fewer checks on vast power. So, nowhere should there be more conscientious responsibility exercised than by the news media. The question is, ;Are we demanding enough of our television news presentations?; ;And are the men of this medium demanding enough of themselves?;Monday night a week ago, President Nixon delivered the most important address of hisAdministration, one of the most important of our decade. His subject was Vietnam. My hope, as his at that time, was to rally the American people to see the conflict through to a lasting and just peace in the Pacific.For 32 minutes, he reasoned with a nation that has suffered almost a third of a million casualties in the longest war in its history.When the President completed his address -- an address, incidentally, that he spent weeks in the preparation of -- his words and policies were subjected to instant analysis and querulouscriticism. The audience of 70 million Americans gathered to hear the President of the ed States was inherited by a small band of network commentators and self-appointed analysts, the majority of whom expressed in one way or another their hostility to what he had to say.vrbNApP2f5Cn12+st;8]O!PO-|C;HFpYK3Bf.,1%@g9|73RD6c201202/170588

Yay, we’re here, we’re doing it! (Applause.) It’s so exciting. I am thrilled. I have been waiting for this day for a long, long time, and it is finally here. And I want to thank you all for being here and for hosting us.As you know, my other partner, the President, was supposed to be here with us, but he had some other stuff going on. He sends his regrets. He would -- trust me, he would rather be here. (Laughter.) But this is an important issue, and we didn’t want to postpone it. So hopefully I will be a satisfactory substitution. (Applause.)I want to start by first thanking Amy for just being a fabulously amazing middle-schooler and for her wonderful introduction. Thank you, Amy. Great job. (Applause.)And I have to thank our co-chairs of the President’s Council -- Dominique Dawes, who has just been a terrific support to this White House and to these issues. She’s just a fabulous woman and just so eloquent and poised. We are just thrilled to have her. And our other co-chair Drew Brees, who, you know, what do you say about Drew Brees, except we’re so lucky to have him as a part of this. He regrets that he couldn’t be here. But we are so grateful to Dominique and to Drew, and also to the executive director of the Council, Shellie Pfohl. Shellie, I know you’re out here. Everybody should know Shellie. She’s there in the fuchsia. (Applause.) To all the Council members who have taken the time not just to participate on this Council but to come here today, it’s going to mean so much to kids across the country to see world-class athletes and chefs and trainers and experts just coming together for the entire issue of making sure that our kids are healthy. So I am personally grateful for your willingness to be a part of this, and thank you so much for your time.I also want to recognize our mayor here in Washington, D.C., Mayor Fenty, who just got here. There he is. Thank you, Mr. Mayor. (Applause.) This is an appropriate event for him to be at, because he’s a jock. (Laughter.) Yeah, yeah. So he’s somebody who lives the message. And we’re grateful for your support and your role modeling of the issue. Thank you, sir.And we also have Congressman John Sarbanes here as well. Congressman, there you are. (Applause.) Thank you so much for your support on this issue.It is great to be here at the Columbia Heights Educational Campus. (Applause.) This is a beautiful facility, very impressive. You drive into a parking lot, and it doesn’t look like a school. I’m impressed, it looks very, very good. And I got a chance to meet your outstanding principal -- (applause) -- Maria Tukeva. Where are you, Principal? (Applause.) And I understand she’s also the founder of -- yes, yes. Thank you for creating one of the top high schools in the country right here in Washington, D.C. (Applause.) Well done, well done.And of course, I want to thank all the students from the Lincoln Multicultural Middle School -- where are my students? (Applause.) Thank you all for joining us. I sort of tried to get in my gear -- I’m going to try and do a few things with you. I got on flat shoes today. But I’m going to do my best. Today we’re here to talk about an issue that is so close to my heart as First Lady, but also as a mom. And it’s an issue that’s of importance to all of us -- eating right, staying active, and giving our kids the bright future that they deserve. And right now, we can be doing better by our kids, because one in three of our children is either overweight or obese in this country. And doctors are seeing more and more children with health problems related to obesity -- high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type II diabetes -- and these used to be diseases that we would only see in adults, but now they’re becoming a regular part of a pediatrician’s practice. And every year, as a result of these conditions, we’re spending billions of dollars on treating obesity-related conditions, and we can’t afford to keep going down this road. We can’t afford it for our young people, and we can’t afford it as a nation. That’s why, earlier this year, we started this wonderful nationwide initiative that we’ve called “Let’s Move.” (Applause.) Yay for “Let’s Move”. And it’s an initiative that has been designed and worked on by so many partners all across the country. People have been fabulous about this issue. But our goal is to end the epidemic of childhood obesity in a generation. We are making this a big, huge generational goal -- with the notion that kids born today are going to have a different idea of what it means to be healthy, so that they grow up at a healthy weight, with good habits, that they can then teach the generations that follow.But one key to getting this done and solving this problem is passing a strong child nutrition bill. And I can’t emphasize this more -– this bill controls the programs that provide school lunches to kids all across the country. And what we do know is that our kids are getting most of their activity, most of their nutrition at school. So if we can do something to improve the quality of food in our schools, we’re going to go a long way to affecting the futures of our children. And right now, that bill is making its way through Congress with what I’m proud to hear is strong bipartisan support.This is an issue that everyone is getting behind because it’s not about politics, it’s about our kids. A majority of senators and House members from both parties have publicly called for swift passage of a strong proposal. So, once again, I urge Congress to provide the resources that we’re going to need to support these important programs that will be able to help change our children’s futures and those after that. This is an important time. So we’re looking forward to the Congress getting this done.But you all know back when we were kids -- and I’m talking to the grown folks here -- being healthy wasn’t that hard. It just wasn’t that hard. Parents, particularly in the summer, could just open up their back door, send the kids out, give them a little breakfast and tell them, go away and don’t come back until we’re y to see you again. (Laughter.) And you might run in for a second if you were a kid and grab a little lunch, right? But you weren’t watching the TV. You had to get up and get back out.And you usually wouldn’t even come home until dinner, and you wouldn’t even want to come home for dinner, because you were having so much fun running around. You had to be forced to sit down and eat a meal. And the meals that we got were generally pretty healthy, because they were usually cooked at home with a whole lot of loving care and fresh products and produce. Today we’ve got so many distractions -- we’ve got games, we’ve got computers -- that are just keeping kids inside after school. The whole culture of our society has changed. During the summer, a lot of times this is what kids are doing. And some folks are living in neighborhoods where they can’t go outside, it’s not safe to open up that door and let your kids run forever.[Nextpage演讲文本1]【Part 1】And we have some communities that don’t have access to that fresh produce and those fresh vegetables. We are dealing with millions of people living in food deserts. And many parents are just overworked -- they’re juggling too much -- and although they want to do it, they just don’t have time to cook a home-cooked meal every night. They’re lucky if it happens once a week.So things have changed. It’s gotten a lot tougher, and I think that’s why we’re seeing the outcomes in our kids that we’re seeing. There’s a reason why we’re here today.But “Let’s Move” is about trying to help change all that. That’s really the goal. It’s not to place blame. It’s not to point fingers. It’s really to help parents in communities and business leaders find a way out of this dilemma.But efforts to help kids stay healthy and active actually go back much further than what we’re trying to do here today. Way back in 1956 -- this is a little history lesson, students -- Dwight Eisenhower was worried that the lack of exercise was causing young people in America to fall behind their peers in Europe and around the world. And so he established the President’s Council on Youth Fitness to get kids moving. This was back in 1956. Does anybody remember that? I don’t want to out anybody -- (laughter) -- on age, but I’m sure we have some people who remember that.The Council’s original mission was simple: to encourage young people to get enough exercise. And that is still a very important component of what we need to do today. But today we know that being healthy is about more than just being physically fit. It’s also about eating healthy foods and really learning which foods to enjoy in moderation. That’s one of the reasons I talk about burgers and fries, because a life without burgers and fries is really depressing. (Laughter.) AUDIENCE MEMBER: And fried chicken.MS. OBAMA: And fried chicken. (Laughter.) And just fried. (Laughter.) But it’s about learning about all the different ways to eat healthy and to strike those balances and to be active -– whether that means playing a sport, which many kids do, but not every kid is an athlete and they don’t have to be. Because you can get the exercise you need from walking your dog vigorously, running with your dog, doing some push-ups at home, or just playing. You know, the work that we’re talking about used to be called play. (Laughter.) And it’s about developing healthy habits that kids will have for the rest of their lives. Because the one thing we know, why we start with kids, is kids learn. They’re not like us. They’re not stuck in time. You know, they learn something, they take it on, and it lasts forever. So we’re talking about developing lifetime skills that kids will then teach to their kids.That’s why yesterday, the President signed an Executive Order expanding the mission of this historic Council and creating the new President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition -- all three components. (Applause.) So we’re just broadening the scope of what we have to focus on. And this group, as Dominique mentioned, will include fitness and nutrition experts who’ve agreed to help raise awareness about how we can make our kids and our schools and our communities healthier.This Council, as I said, is made up of everyone -- chefs, doctors, health experts, personal trainers. We’ve got our Olympic gold medalists. We’ve got a NASCAR driver. We’ve got NBA all-stars, tennis legends. We’ve got it all because we know in the end, kids listen to these heroes in so many ways.And those are just a few of the 25 men and women who will be donating their time and expertise to this cause. It’s just more people coming on and making “Let’s Move” a broader and stronger campaign.Together, they’re committed to working with government and the private sector -– that’s businesses, schools and nonprofits –- to help kids everywhere learn about healthy eating and the importance of being active each and every single day. And we’re broadening the mission of the Council so that we can make a bigger difference -– focusing on what -- not just what you do with your bodies, but what you put in your bodies. We all know, if we’re focused on our fitness, it is not enough just to exercise -- you have to focus on diet. I still struggle with that. At 46 years old, if I want to lose some weight, I can work out as much as I want to -- right, Mayor? -- but you got to have that balance of food to really cut the fat. So we’re really excited about this broader mission. Here -- right here in Columbia Heights, you’re aly well ahead of the game. That’s one of the reasons why we wanted to come here, because we wanted to model -- (applause) -- what’s aly working. Because that’s another thing about “Let’s Move,” we don’t have to recreate the wheel; we have to just find the models that are aly working and sp those across the country. And Columbia Heights is serving as one of those models. I know that you’ve made the President’s physical fitness test an important part of PE class, just kids living up to that test. You collect information on the student’s weight and their heart rate and the progress that they’re making throughout the year. And I also hear that at the end of the year, the students with the most improvement get to take part in a fitness challenge with teachers and staff, which is huge. (Applause.)Because as we’ve been talking with schools, what we’re finding consistently is that when the teachers and the staff are involved, when they’re sitting around at the lunch table and they’re practicing the same habits that they’re trying to instill in kids, it just makes kids want to do it even more. So I commend you all on what you’re doing here. That’s what the President’s Council is all about. It’s about all of us pushing ourselves to meet new challenges, even when they’re difficult, because none of this is easy. It only gets easy if you start young. That’s what -- that’s the gift that we can offer our children. If they start out with these habits early on, it just makes life easier for them.It’s about having fun -- let’s not forget that -- because this isn’t all work and calorie counting and all that. This is about having some fun and getting more opportunity for kids to be active and to find a way that connects with each of them, because not every kid is going to connect to activities in the same way. So we’ve got to have a broad base of opportunities for kids.So, again, I want to thank you all here at Columbia Heights for setting such a wonderful model, such a great example. I want you all to keep doing what you’re doing and help sp your message to other schools not just here in the District, but around the nation. You guys are a true model.Again, I want to thank our Council members for their excitement and enthusiasm. And I think now is the time that we actually are going to get moving. So we’re going to do some activities with the kids. And as I said, I’m going to try and hang with you all, but this bow might get in the way. (Laughter.) But I want to thank you all for being here. So let’s get moving. So thank you all so much. (Applause.)END2:55 P.M. EDT201006/106904

  美国当选总统、民主党人奥巴马1月20日在美国国会大厦西侧的露天平台上正式宣誓就任美国第44任总统。宣誓就职后,奥巴马发表就职演说。演说中,奥巴马呼吁全体美国民众端正心态,努力提高公民责任感,为振兴国家贡献自己的力量。以下是就职演说的精语录:点击进入奥巴马就职演讲视频关于布什我感谢布什总统为我们国家作出的务,感谢他在过渡期间所展示的慷慨与合作。I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.关于困境我们都明白我们现在处于危机当中。我们的国家处于战争状态,与一个影响深远的、暴力与仇恨的网络作战。我们的经济遭到严重削弱,这是部分人贪婪和不负责任的后果,但也因为我们作为一个集体没能作出艰难选择,没能为新时代作好准备。That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age.关于经济从今天开始,我们必须从跌倒中起来,拍拍灰尘,再次开始重塑美国。Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.国家的经济情况要求我们采取大胆且快速的行动,我们的确是要行动,不仅是要创造就业,更要为(下一轮经济)增长打下新的基础。The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act, not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.市场创造财富、拓展自由的能力无可匹敌,但是这场危机提醒我们,如果没有监管,市场很可能就会失去控制,而且偏袒富人国家的繁荣无法持久。国家经济的成败不仅仅取决于国内生产总值的大小,而且取决于繁荣的覆盖面,取决于我们是否有能力让所有有意愿的人都有机会走向富裕。Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched, but this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control, and that a nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous. The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gross domestic product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on our ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart, not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.01/61474

  What makes the world go round?Love?Money ?Energy ?Or science and technology ?是什么东西让世界延续?爱?金钱?能源?还是科学技术?Yes ,all of them ,but theres another important element, the spirit of courage and determination .是的,所有这些东西,但还有另外一个关键的因素,勇气和决心。To illustrate this ,let me share a true story .为了实这一点,让我与大家分享一个真实的故事。Once there was a young girl who dreamed of becoming the best swimmer in the world .以前有一个女孩梦想成为世界最优秀的游泳运动员。Driven by the dream,she practiced hard.Each day ,she swam twice or even three times further than the distance a football player covers on the ground during a match .在这个梦想的驱动下,她努力训练。她每天游两次,甚至三次,距离比一个足球运动员在一场比赛中所跑过的还长。She quietly continued with her training ,and finally,won a gold medal in the 1992 Olympic in Barcelona.她静静地继续着训练,终于在一九九二年巴赛罗那奥运会上夺得金牌,This woman is my hero,Lin Li.这个女人是我的偶像,名叫林莉。When I first entered middle school in 1994 ,I found it hard to cope with the pressure and fell behind the class.当我在一九九四年刚进入高中时,我发现很难承受那种压力,而使学习跟不上。Then the school took us to interview LinLi.We watched her swim and then sat around the pool listening to her story .于是学校让我们去访问林莉,我们看着她游泳,然后围在游泳池边听她的故事。LinLi said plainly ,;During the match ,the only thing in my mind was to push through ,push through ,and make the best out of myself .;林莉平静地说:“比赛当中,我只有一个念头,向前,向前,发挥我最好的水平。”Her words echoed in my mind.I knew I ,too,could overcome the obstacles in my study ,as she did in her training .她的话在我的脑海中回响着,我知道我也能够克我学习上的困难,就像她在训练所做到的一样。Gradually ,I got used to middle school .One year later ,I won a scholarship.我逐渐适应高中生活,一年后,我拿到了奖学金。This was the first time I experienced the Olympic spirit.It was not intangible or distant as I had once thought.那是我第一次体验奥运精神,并不是我以前想的那么不可触知,那么遥远的。Rather ,it was the courage to meet the challenge head on ,to persevere,and to push oneself to the limit.相反,那是迎接挑战的勇气,坚持不懈,把自己推到极点。Indeed ,this is the spirit that unites us in striving for the best .A french major in my school won a silver medal in Mens Foil at the Sydney Olympics last year .真的,这是团结我们争取最好的精神。我校一名法语系的学生在去年的悉尼奥运会上夺得了男子花剑的银牌。He started to learn fencing at age ten and spent a great part of his life on our national fencing team.他十岁开始练剑术,在我们的国家剑术队里,他花了大量的时间。Now he always says:;I will learn French the way I learned fencing .;现在他总是说:“我会像学习剑术那样学习法语。”As his fellow students ,we have all heard how he learned fencing .About half a year before Sydney ,he injured his ligament during a match in Europe.作为他的校友,我们都听说了他是如何练习剑术的。大约去悉尼的半年前,他在欧洲的一次比赛中扭伤了韧带。The doctor advised him to have an operation .However ,since that would mean missing the Olympics,医生建议他做手术,但是这意味着要错过奥运会,he postponed the operation and continued his training with an injured leg.他推迟手术,带着伤腿继续训练。At our New Years party ,he thanked us for helping him make up the lessons after his return from Sydney.在我们的新年晚会上,他感谢我们在他从悉尼回来后帮他把功课赶上来。A classmate of his ,however ,said in reply,;You have done more for us than we have done for you ,because you have instilled in all of us the hardworking spirit of the Olympics.;然而他的一位同学回答说:“你为我们做的比我们为你做的多得多,因为你为我们所有人灌输了奥运会的刻苦努力的精神。”Yes, we need the Olympic spirit as we strive to get rid of poverty and build China into a modern country.是的,我们需要奥运精神,正如我们努力消除贫困,把中国建设成现代化国家一样。This is why many classmates and I regard ourselves as ;bid supporters,;and as one can see on our Olympics website,这是我和我的同学把我们自己看成申奥拥护者的原因,从我们的奥运会网战上,there are millions of us.Indeed ,we are y to live out this spirit .可以看到数百我们一样的人。真的,我们准备着让人在精神在。Yang Xia,a gold medallist in weight lifting,came from a Tujia minority village.杨霞一位举重运动的金牌得主,来自土家少数民族的村庄。When she went home after coming back from Sydney,a television crew followed her .当她从悉尼回家里,一队电视工作者跟随着她。So we saw on TV how she thanked the townfolk in her local dialect and how the entire village came out to welcome their daughter .所以我们可以从电视里看到她用家乡话感谢父老乡亲,整个村庄的人走出来迎接他们的女儿。She told the anchorman,;I can always see strength and encouragement in their eyes.;As a student can also see the strength and encouragement .她告诉主持人:“我总能在乡亲们的眼中看到力量和鼓励。”I can see them in the eyes of Yang Xia ,Lin Li and many other athletes.I can see them in the eyes of millions of Chinese people who support Beijings bid for the Olympics.我可以从杨霞,林莉和其他许我运动员眼中看到它们,我可以从无数持北京申奥的中国人眼中看到它们,I can see the determination and commitment with which China is marching into the 21st century .我们可以看到中国跨越二十一世纪的决心和承诺。Beijings bid drives us forward .It promotes the Olympic spirit in China.北京申奥促使我们前进,在中国宣扬了奥运精神,And it is a prophecy that China will contribute more to the world in this new century .Thank you.预示着中国将在新世纪里为世界作出更多贡献。谢谢。Judge:Thank you very much indeed contestant number two .Youve made ,a ,a very persuasive case indeed for explaining to us why it is that the Olympic spirit,评委:真的非常感谢二号选手,你用非常令我们折的方式,向我们解释了为什么奥运精神,um, helps people to achieve even more than they thought they could in whatever field they happen to be ,uh ,to be working in.能帮助人们,在他们涉足的任何领域里取得比他们认为的还要多的成就。But I wonder what sort of balance you think there should be for know athletes, um, in their ordinary lives,但我想知道你认为出了名的运动员在他们的日常生活中是如何平衡,between exercise and their work.What sort of balance should there be for all those of us who are not going to be participants in the Olympics between exercise and work?锻炼与工作,我们那些不参加奥运会的人该如何平衡锻炼与工作的?Long Xiang:Of course ,there should be a balance because the majority of us are not athletes and were not going to enter the Olympic games.龙翔:当然,那存在着平衡因为我们当中绝大多数人不参加奥运会。But as I mentioned the most important thing is the Olympic spirit.Actually there are a lot of people around us who have lived out the Olympic spirit in their lives,但正如我所提到的,最重要的是奥运精神。事实上,我们周围有很多人在他们的一生中都贯穿着奥运精神,who have applied Olympic spirit in their lives.Actually ,once I volunteered to work for a group of disabled people but though they cant move as freely as each of us ,那些人在他们在的一生中都运用着奥运精神。事实上,一次我志愿为残疾人士务,虽然他们不像我们每一个人那样可以自行动,but the passion ,the love ,they hold towards sports are no less than each of us .I remember that it was extremely hot day in summer time and I couldnt believe what we saw in front of me .但他们对运动的热爱和并不比我们每一个人少。我记得那是夏天异常炎热的一天,我难以相信我们眼前的一切,The room was not air conditioned but these people kept on training .Though theyre not going to participate in the Olympics games ,一间没有空调的房间里,这些人在继续训练着。虽然他们没有参加奥运会,but you can see sweat running all over their bodies soaking their T-shirts.但是你可以看到他们全身大汗,湿透了他们的T恤。But despite of this they kept on training .Many of them had got done a good job in their studies and their work.他们全然不顾,继续训练,他们许多人在学习上和工作上很出色。So ,I think a balance should be kept because we want to keep healthy to stay in good condition while doing sports.所以我们需要平衡因为我们需要在运动中保持健康,保持良好的状态。But the important thing is that we need to balance our study and our work.We need to apply the Olympic spirit ,either in the Olympic ,in the sports and in our life .Thank you .但重要的是我们需要在我们的学习和工作中得到平衡,我们需要在奥运会上,在运动中和我们的生活里运用奥运精神。谢谢。Judge :Thank you very much .Thank you contestant two .Um ,as an educator I was very delighted to hear ,评委:非常感谢。谢谢二号选手。作为一名教育者,我很高兴地听到,um, your concerns about education and the importance of education and ,uh ,China ,uh ,becoming a major world power .中国成为一个世界大国,你对教育和教育的重要性的关注,Um,I m particulary interested in the fact that you mentioned ,um ,the need for teachers in poverty areas ,我对你提到的事实特别感兴趣,那就是贫困地区对教师的需求,uh,especially with regard to teaching of , uh ,females.Uh,what do you consider to be the most important qualities that a teacher working in these poverty areas should have given the kinds of students that they are going to be working with?特别是关于女教师。你认为这些在贫困地区工作的,教育各种各样的学生的老师应该具备哪些最重要的素质?Long Xiang:I think to be a good teacher there are many qualities one should has.But the one I think the most important of all is the love towards the students.龙翔:我认为作为一名好老师需要许多方面的素质,但我认为最重要的是对学生的爱。And ,actually I believe no matter if a teacher who along the coastal area or in the western part of China,事实上,我相信无论一名老师是在沿海地区还是在中国的西部,as long as they have the love towards students and that can make a good teacher .只要爱护学生就是一名好老师。Actually when I was in the primary school one of my classmates parents had a divorce.事实上,我上小学时,我的一位同学的父母离婚了,The girl suffered terribly from this .Her academic performance failed dramatically.那个女孩为此伤心欲绝,她的学习成绩直线下降。But ,the teacher paid special attention to her ,to talk to her for hours ,and helped her with her study.但是老师对她特别关注,与她谈心数小时,帮助她解决学习困难。And I think for the teachers in the weatern part of China,of course, the most important quality is to love their students ,to care about their thoughts ,我认为对于中国西部的老师,当然最重要的素质是热爱学生,关心他们的思想,not only their academic performance ,but their development both physically and mentally .Thank you .不仅仅是他们的学习,而且是他们的身体和思想的成长,谢谢。Judge:Thank you .谢谢。10/86247

  This morning the President took a tour of Ernest Maier Block, a family business in Maryland. Speaking afterwards, he said, “These are the guys that build serious stuff – concrete blocks, bricks for walls that are thick, difficult to move, and can stop anything in their path – sort of like the way I feel about Congress sometimes.”That joke was born out of almost 2 years in which the fight has been enormously tough, not only against an economy that was barreling downward when the President came into office, but against a Republican minority that has joined arms to oppose virtually every attempt to get it back on track. From the Recovery Act, responsible for more than 3 million jobs, to 16 small business tax cuts, to keeping teachers and firefighters on the job – even the most common sense measures have been fought tooth and nail.In his remarks, the President made clear that he was still in the fight every day to boost our economic recovery, and to overcome the intransigence of those blocking solutions. He reiterated what CEA Chair Austan Goolsbee spelled out earlier– that while there’s a lot of work left to do to get Americans back to work, nine straight months of positive private sector job growth is a far cry from the hemorrhaging that was taking place when he came into office.Read the Transcript | Download Video: mp4 (85MB) | mp3 (8MB) 201010/115355
