Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq. We did. I promised to refocus on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11. We have.

A new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.
We have it in our power to begin the world over again.

I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don't find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I've never had a problem with the way I look. I'd rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.
I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

So long as I'm Commander-in-Chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known.
