Richard M. NixonResignationAddressdelivered8 August1974AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED:Textversion belowtranscribeddirectlyfromaudioGood evening:This is the 37th time I have spoken toyou fromthis office, where so many decisions havebeen madethat shape the history of this nation. Eachtime Ihave done soto discuss with yousome matter that I believe affected the nationalinterest. In allthe decisions Ihave madeinmy public life I have always tried to do what was best for the nation.Throughout the long and difficult period of Watergate,Ihave felt it was my duty to perseveretomake every possible effortto complete the term of office to whichyou elected me. Inthepastfew days, however, it has become evidentto me thatIno longer have a strong enoughpolitical base in the Congress to justify continuing that effort. Aslong as there was such abase, I felt strongly that it was necessary to see the constitutional process throughto itsconclusion. thatto do otherwise would be unfaithfultothe spirit of that deliberately difficultprocess, and a dangerously destabilizing precedent for the future. But withthe disappearanceof that base,Inow believe thatthe constitutional purpose has been served. And there is nolonger a need for the process to be prolonged.I would have preferred to carry throughtothe finish whatever the personal agony it wouldhave involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. Butthe interests of the nationmust always come before any personal considerations.Transcription byMichaelE. Eidenmuller. Propertyof AmericanRhetoric.com. . Copyright 2006. All rights reserved.Page1AmericanRhetoric.comFrom the discussions Ihave had with Congressional and other leaders I have concluded thatbecause of the Watergate matter Imightnothave the support of the Congress that I wouldconsider necessary to back the very difficult decisions and carry outthe duties of this office inthe way the interests of the nation will require.I have never been a quitter.To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinctin my body.But asPresident, I must put the interests of America first.America needs a fulltimePresident and a fulltimeCongress, particularly at this time withproblems we face athome and abroad. Tocontinue tofightthrough the months aheadfor mypersonal vindication would almosttotally absorb the time and attention of both the Presidentand the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be onthe greatissues of peaceabroad and prosperity without inflation at home.Therefore, I shallresign the Presidency effective atnoontomorrow.Vice President Ford will be swornin as President atthathour in this office.AsI recallthe highhopes for America with which we began this second term, I feel a greatsadness thatI willnot be here inthis office working on your behalf to achieve those hopes inthe next two and a half years. But in turning over direction of the Governmentto VicePresident Ford Iknow, as Itold the nation when Inominated him for that office ten monthsago, thatthe leadership of America would be in good hands.In passing this office tothe Vice President, I also do so with the profound sense of the weightof responsibility that will fall onhis shoulders tomorrow, and therefore of the understanding,the patience, the cooperationhe willneed from allAmericans. As he assumes thatresponsibility he will deserve the help and the support of all of us. As we look tothe future,the first essential is to beginhealing the wounds of this nation. To put the bitterness anddivisions of the recent past behind us and to rediscover those sharedideals that lie attheheart of our strength and unity as a great and as a free people.Bytaking this action, Ihope that I will have hastened the start of that process of healingwhichis so desperately needed in America. Iregret deeply any injuries that may have beendone inthe course of the events that led to this decision. I would say only thatif some of myjudgments were wrong andsome were wrong theywere made in what I believed atthetime to be the best interests of the nation.To those whohave stood withme during thesepast difficult months, to my family, my friends,the many others who joined in supporting my cause because they believed it was right, I willbe eternally grateful for your support. And tothose whohave not felt able to give me yoursupport, letme say Ileave withno bitterness toward those whohave opposed me, because allof us in the final analysis have beenconcerned withthe good of the country, however ourjudgments might differ.Transcription byMichaelE.

Ishall leave this office with regret atnotcompleting my term but with gratitude for the privilege of serving as your President for thepastfive and a half years. These years have been a momentous time in the history of ournation and the world. They have been a time ofachievementin which we can all be proud,achievements that represent the shared efforts of the administration, the Congress and thepeople. Butthe challenges ahead are equally great. And they, too, will require the support andthe efforts of the Congress and the people, working in cooperation withthe newAdministration.We have endedAmericas longest war. But in the work of securing a lasting peace in theworld, the goals ahead are even more farreachingand more difficult. We must complete astructure of peace,so that it will be said of this generation ourgeneration of Americans bythe people of allnations, not only that we ended one war but that we prevented futurewars.We have unlocked the doors that for a quarter of a century stood betweenthe ed Statesand the Peoples Republic of China.We must now insure thatthe onequarterof the worldspeople who live in the Peoples Republic of China will be and remain, not our enemies, but ourfriends.Inthe Middle East, 100million people in the Arab countries, many of whom have consideredus their enemy for nearly 20 years, nowlook on us as their friends.We must continue to buildon that friendship sothat peace can settle atlast over the Middle East and sothat the cradleof civilization willnot become its grave. Together with the Soviet Union we have made thecrucial breakthroughs thathave begunthe process of limiting nuclear arms. But, we must setas our goal, not just limiting, but reducing and finally destroying these terrible weapons, sothatthey cannot destroy civilization. And so that the threat of nuclear war willnolonger hangover the world and the people.We have opened a new relation with the Soviet Union. Wemustcontinue to develop and expand that new relationship, sothat the two strongest nationsof the world willlive together in cooperation rather than confrontation.Around the world inAsia,in Africa,in Latin America, in the Middle Eastthereare millionsof people who live in terrible poverty, even starvation. We mustkeep as our goal turning awayfrom production for war and expanding production for peace so that people everywhere onthis earthcan at lastlook forward, in their childrens time, if not in our owntime, to havingthe necessities for a decentlife. Here, in America, we are fortunate that most of our peoplehave not only the blessings of liberty but alsothe means tolive full and good, and by theworlds standards even abundantlives.We must press on, however, toward a goal notonly of more and better jobs but of fullopportunity for every American, and of what we are striving so hard rightnowto achieve prosperitywithout inflation.Transcription byMichaelE.

Ihave tried,tothe best of my ability, todischarge those duties and meet those responsibilities that were entrusted tome. SometimesI have succeeded. And sometimes Ihave failed.But always Ihave taken heart from whatTheodore Roosevelt once said aboutthe maninthe arena, whose face is marred by dust andsweat and blood, who strives valiantly, whoerrs and comes short again and again becausethere is not effort withouterror and shortcoming, but who does actually strive to do the deed,who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthycause, who atthe bestknows in the end the triumphs of high achievements and withtheworstif he fails, atleastfails while daring greatly.I pledge to youtonightthat as long as I have a breath of life in my body, Ishall continue inthat spirit. Ishall continue to work for the greatcauses to whichIhave been dedicatedthroughout my years as a Congressman, aSenator, Vice President and President, the cause ofpeace notjustfor America but among allnations prosperity,justice and opportunity forall of our people.There is one cause above all to which I have been devoted and to which I shall always bedevoted for as long as Ilive.When Ifirst took the oath of office as Presidentfive and a half years ago, Imadethis sacredcommitment: to consecrate my office, my energies, and all the wisdom I can summon tothecause of peace among nations. Ive done my very bestin allthe days since to be true tothatpledge.As a result of these efforts, I am confident that the world is a safer place today, notonly for the people of America but for the people of allnations, and that all of our childrenhave a better chance than before of living in peace rather than dying in war.This, more than anything, is what Ihopedto achieve when I soughtthe Presidency.This, more than anything, is what Ihope will bemy legacy to you, to our country, as Ileavethe Presidency.To have served in this office is tohave felt a very personal sense of kinship with each andevery American.Inleaving it, I doso with this prayer: May Gods grace be with youin allthe days ahead. /201205/182143

Good morning. Christmas is fast approaching, and I know many of you are busy trying to finish up your holiday shopping. This week, we received good news about the economy that should brighten the season and keep us optimistic about the year ahead.First, the Commerce Department released figures showing that sales for America's retailers were up in November and that the increase is much larger than expected. These figures are important because for many American businesses November and December are their highest sales months for the year. So the healthy increase in retail sales is a good sign for American employers and workers.America's working families also received another bit of holiday cheer this week: We learned that real hourly wages rose by 2.3 percent over the past year. That may not sound like a lot, but for the typical family of four with both parents working, it means an extra ,350 for this year. At the same time, our growing economy continues to create jobs and that has brought unemployment down to just 4.5 percent. These numbers give all Americans a reason to celebrate: More people are working than ever before, and paychecks are going further than they used to.When you decide how to spend your paycheck, you have to set priorities and live within your means. Congress needs to do the same thing with the money you send to Washington. That was one of the clear messages American voters sent in the mid-term elections. And one of the best ways we can impose more discipline on federal spending is by addressing the problem of earmarks.Earmarks are spending provisions that are often slipped into bills at the last minute, so they never get debated or discussed. It is not surprising that this often leads to unnecessary federal spending -- such as a swimming pool or a teapot museum tucked into a big spending bill. And over the last decade, the Congressional Research Service reports that the number of earmarks has exploded -- increasing from about 3,000 in 1996 to 13,000 in 2006. I respect Congress's authority over the public purse, but the time has come to reform the earmark process and dramatically reduce the number of earmarks.Reforming earmarks is the responsibility of both political parties. Over the past year, the Republican Congress succeeded in eliminating virtually all earmarks for three major Cabinet departments. And I'm pleased that Democratic leaders in Congress recently committed themselves to support reforms that would restore transparency and accountability to earmarks. For this year's budget, they pledged to maintain current levels of spending and not include any earmarks. And they agreed to a temporary moratorium on earmarks.This is a good start, but Congress needs to do much more. My administration will soon lay out a series of reforms that will help make earmarks more transparent, that will hold the members who propose earmarks more accountable, and that will help reduce the number of earmarks inserted into large spending bills.Republicans and Democrats alike have an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to spending restraint and good government by making earmark reform a top priority for the next Congress. When it comes to spending your money, you expect us to rise above party labels. By working together to cut down on earmarks, we can show the American people that we can be fiscally responsible with their money and that we can come together in Washington to get results.Thank you for listening. paycheck : salary or wage (薪水)earmark : to reserve or set aside for a particular purpose(为某用途拨款)200703/11249Only as free Europe unitedly marshals its strength can it effectively safeguard, even with our help, its spiritual and cultural heritage.自由的欧洲只有团结一致地调度自己的力量,再加上我们的帮助,才能有效地捍卫其精神与文化的遗产。eight Conceiving the defense of freedom, like freedom itself, to be one and indivisible,八、我们感到,对自由的维护正如自由本身一样,乃是一个不可分割的整体,we hold all continents and peoples in equal regard and honor.因此我们对各大洲与各民族一视同仁和同等尊重。We reject any insinuation that one race or another, one people or another, is in any sense inferior or expendable.对关于某一种族或某一民族在任何意义上低人一等或可以牺牲的暗示,我们都不接受。nine Respecting the ed Nations as the living sign of all peoples hope for peace, we shall strive to make it not merely an eloquent symbol but an effective force.九、我们尊重联合国,把它视为各个民族向往和平的活标志。我们要努力使联合国不单纯是一个雄辩的象征,而且成为一种有效的力量。And in our quest for an honorable peace, we shall neither compromise, nor tire, nor ever cease.我们在寻求光荣的和平时,决不妥协,决不气馁,决不却步不前。 通过这些行动准则,我们希望得到各民族的理解。By these rules of conduct, we hope to be known to all peoples.By their observance, an earth of peace may become not a vision but a fact.只要遵守这些准则,一个和平的地球就不是幻想,而会成为现实。This hope—this supreme aspiration—must rule the way we live.这一希望——这一至高无上的抱负,应当主宰我们生活的方式。We must be y to dare all for our country.

[Swearing-in on Ronald Reagan by USSC Chief Justice Warren Burger] [AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED: Text version below transcribed directly from audio.]Thank you. Thank you. Senator Hatfield, Mr. Chief Justice, Mr. President, Vice President Bush, Vice President Mondale, Senator Baker, Speaker O’Neill, Reverend Moomaw, and my fellow citizens:To a few of us here today this is a solemn and most momentous occasion. And, yet, in the history of our nation it is a commonplace occurrence. The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place as it has for almost two centuries and few of us stop to think how unique we really are. In the eyes of many in the world, this every-four-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle.Mr. President, I want our fellow citizens to know how much you did to carry on this tradition. By your gracious cooperation in the transition process you have shown a watching world that we are a united people pledged to maintaining a political system which guarantees individual liberty to a greater degree than any other. And I thank you and your people for all your help in maintaining the continuity which is the bulwark of our republic.The business of our nation goes forward.These ed States are confronted with an economic affliction of great proportions. We suffer from the longest and one of the worst sustained inflations in our national history. It distorts our economic decisions, penalizes thrift, and crushes the struggling young and the fixed-income elderly alike. It threatens to shatter the lives of millions of our people. Idle industries have cast workers into unemployment, human misery and personal indignity.Those who do work are denied a fair return for their labor by a tax system which penalizes successful achievement and keeps us from maintaining full productivity. But great as our tax burden is, it has not kept pace with public spending. For decades we have piled deficit upon deficit, mortgaging our future and our children’s future for the temporary convenience of the present. To continue this long trend is to guarantee tremendous social, cultural, political, and economic upheavals.You and I, as individuals, can, by borrowing, live beyond our means, but for only a limited period of time. Why then should we think that collectively, as a nation, we are not bound by that same limitation?We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow. And let there be no misunderstanding -- we’re going to begin to act beginning today. The economic ills we suffer have come upon us over several decades. They will not go away in days, weeks, or months, but they will go away. They will go away because we as Americans have the capacity now, as we have had in the past, to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last and greatest bastion of freedom.In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we’ve been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?All of us together -- in and out of government -- must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable with no one group singled out to pay a higher price. We hear much of special interest groups. Well our concern must be for a special interest group that has been too long neglected. It knows no sectional boundaries, or ethnic and racial divisions, and it crosses political party lines. It is made up of men and women who raise our food, patrol our streets, man our mines and factories, teach our children, keep our homes, and heal us when we’re sick -- professionals, industrialists, shopkeepers, clerks, cabbies, and truck drivers. They are, in short, “We the People.” This breed called Americans.Well, this Administration’s objective will be a healthy, vigorous, growing economy that provides equal opportunities for all Americans with no barriers born of bigotry or discrimination. Putting America back to work means putting all Americans back to work. Ending inflation means freeing all Americans from the terror of runaway living costs.All must share in the productive work of this “new beginning,” and all must share in the bounty of a revived economy.With the idealism and fair play which are the core of our system and our strength, we can have a strong and prosperous America at peace with itself and the world. So as we begin, let us take inventory.We are a nation that has a government -- not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the earth. Our Government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the Federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the Federal Government and those reserved to the states or to the people.All of us -- all of us need to be reminded that the Federal Government did not create the states; the states created the Federal Government.Now, so there will be no misunderstanding, it’s not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work -- work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it. If we look to the answer as to why for so many years we achieved so much, prospered as no other people on earth, it was because here in this land we unleashed the energy and individual genius of man to a greater extent than has ever been done before.Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured here than in any other place on earth. The price for this freedom at times has been high, but we have never been unwilling to pay that price.It is no coincidence that our present troubles parallel and are proportionate to the intervention and intrusion in our lives that result from unnecessary and excessive growth of Government.It is time for us to realize that we are too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams. We're not, as some would have us believe, doomed to an inevitable decline. I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.So with all the creative energy at our command, let us begin an era of national renewal. Let us renew our determination, our courage, and our strength. And let us renew our faith and our hope. We have every right to dream heroic dreams.Those who say that we’re in a time when there are no heroes -- they just don’t know where to look. You can see heroes every day going in and out of factory gates. Others, a handful in number, produce enough food to feed all of us and then the world beyond. You meet heroes across a counter -- and they’re on both sides of that counter. There are entrepreneurs with faith in themselves and faith in an idea who create new jobs, new wealth and opportunity.There are individuals and families whose taxes support the Government and whose voluntary gifts support church, charity, culture, art, and education. Their patriotism is quiet but deep. Their values sustain our national life.Now I have used the words “they” and “their” in speaking of these heroes. I could say “you” and “your” because I’m addressing the heroes of whom I speak -- you, the citizens of this blessed land. Your dreams, your hopes, your goals are going to be the dreams, the hopes, and the goals of this Administration, so help me God.We shall reflect the compassion that is so much a part of your make-up. How can we love our country and not love our countrymen -- and loving them reach out a hand when they fall, heal them when they’re sick, and provide opportunity to make them self-sufficient so they will be equal in fact and not just in theory? Can we solve the problems confronting us? Well the answer is an unequivocal and emphatic "Yes." To paraphrase Winston Churchill, I did not take the oath I’ve just taken with the intention of presiding over the dissolution of the world’s strongest economy.In the days ahead, I will propose removing the roadblocks that have slowed our economy and reduced productivity. Steps will be taken aimed at restoring the balance between the various levels of government. Progress may be slow -- measured in inches and feet, not miles -- but we will progress. It is time to reawaken this industrial giant, to get government back within its means, and to lighten our punitive tax burden. And these will be our first priorities, and on these principles there will be no compromise.On the eve or our struggle for independence a man who might’ve been one of the greatest among the Founding Fathers, Dr. Joseph Warren, president of the Massachusetts Congress, said to his fellow Americans, “Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question upon which rest the happiness and the liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.”Well I believe we, the Americans of today, are y to act worthy of ourselves, y to do what must be done to insure happiness and liberty for ourselves, our children, and our children’s children. And as we renew ourselves here in our own land, we will be seen as having greater strength throughout the world. We will again be the exemplar of freedom and a beacon of hope for those who do not now have freedom.To those neighbors and allies who share our freedom, we will strengthen our historic ties and assure them of our support and firm commitment. We will match loyalty with loyalty. We will strive for mutually beneficial relations. We will not use our friendship to impose on their sovereignty, for our own sovereignty is not for sale.As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it -- now or ever. Our forbearance should never be misunderstood. Our reluctance for conflict should not be misjudged as a failure of will. When action is required to preserve our national security, we will act. We will maintain sufficient strength to prevail if need be, knowing that if we do so, we have the best chance of never having to use that strength.Above all we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors.I am -- I'm told that tens of thousands of prayer meetings are being held on this day; and for that I am deeply grateful. We are a nation under God, and I believe God intended for us to be free. It would be fitting and good, I think, if on each inaugural day in future years it should be declared a day of prayer. This is the first time in our history that this ceremony has been held, as you’ve been told, on this West Front of the Capitol.Standing here, one faces a magnificent vista, opening up on this city’s special beauty and history. At the end of this open mall are those shrines to the giants on whose shoulders we stand. Directly in front of me, the monument to a monumental man. George Washington, father of our country. A man of humility who came to greatness reluctantly. He led America out of revolutionary victory into infant nationhood. Off to one side, the stately memorial to Thomas Jefferson. The Declaration of Independence flames with his eloquence. And then beyond the Reflecting Pool, the dignified columns of the Lincoln Memorial. Whoever would understand in his heart the meaning of America will find it in the life of Abraham Lincoln.Beyond those moments -- those monuments to heroism is the Potomac River, and on the far shore the sloping hills of Arlington National Cemetery, with its row upon row of simple white markers bearing crosses or Stars of David. They add up to only a tiny fraction of the price that has been paid for our freedom.Each one of those markers is a monument to the kind of hero I spoke of earlier. 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.Under one such a 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. There, on the Western front, he was killed trying to carry a message between battalions under heavy fire. We're told that on his body was found a diary. On the flyleaf under the heading, “My Pledge,” he had written these words: “America must win this war. 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.”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. It does require, however, our best effort, and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds; to believe that together with God’s help we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us.And after all, why shouldn’t we believe that? We are Americans.God bless you and thank you. Thank you very much.200606/7682With eight days until our nation faces an unprecedented financial crisis, the President addressed the nation on the consequences the stalemate in Congress could have on the stability of our economy.

Our Nation honors the brave citizens, service members, police officers, and firefighters who heroically responded in the face of terror. On these important days, we reflect on the terrible events of September 11, 2001, and lift the victims and their families in our prayers.Our Nation will never forget the individuals who lost their lives in New York, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. America remains inspired by the countless acts of kindness and sacrifice we saw that day -- fearless rescuers who rushed toward danger, a beloved priest who died helping others, two office workers who carried a disabled person 68 floors to safety.We also pray for the safety and success of the members of our Armed Forces now serving freedom's cause. We seek God's grace on their families, and commit to Heaven's care those brave men and women He has called home. We ask the Almighty to watch over America and pray for His providence and continued blessings on our country. May He always guide the ed States of America. As we defend our country against its enemies, we pray for help in protecting the gift of freedom from those who seek to destroy it, and we ask the Almighty to strengthen all those securing liberty on distant shores.NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the ed States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the ed States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 5, through Sunday, September 7, 2008, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance.

(Applause.) My director of recovery for auto communities and workers, Ed Montgomery, is in the house, and he's doing outstanding work. (Applause.) Now, Cincinnati, like a lot of Americans, you're having some fun today. Taking the day off. Spending time with the kids. Some of you may be proud of your grilling skills. (Laughter.) Every man thinks he can grill -- (laughter) -- whether he can or not. That's what Michelle says. (Laughter.) Michelle says she's a better griller than me. (Applause.) I don't know. We'll have to have a grill-off someday. But you're enjoying some good music, some good food, some famous Cincinnati chili. (Applause.) But today we also pause. We pause to remember and to reflect and to reaffirm. We remember that the rights and benefits we enjoy today weren't simply handed to America's working men and women. They had to be won. They had to be fought for, by men and women of courage and conviction, from the factory floors of the Industrial Revolution to the shopping aisles of today's superstores. They stood up and they spoke out to demand a fair shake and an honest day's pay for an honest day's work. (Applause.) Many risked their lives. Some gave their lives. Some made it a cause of their lives -- like Senator Ted Kennedy, who we remember today. (Applause.)So let us never forget: much of what we take for granted -- the 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, health insurance, paid leave, pensions, Social Security, Medicare -- they all bear the union label. (Applause.) It was the American worker -- men and women just like you -- who returned from World War II to make our economy the envy of the world. It was labor that helped build the largest middle class in history. Even if you're not a union member, every American owes something to America's labor movement. (Applause.)So as we remember this history, let's reflect on its meaning in our own time. Like so many Americans, you work hard. You meet your responsibilities. You play by the rules. You pay your bills. But in recent years, the American Dream seems like it's been slipping away, because from Washington to Wall Street, too often a different attitude prevailed. Wealth was valued over work, selfishness over sacrifice, greed over responsibility. The right to organize was undermined rather than strengthened. (Applause.)That's what we saw. And it may have worked out well for those folks at the top, but it didn't work out for you and it didn't work out well for our country. That culture -- that culture and the policies that flowed from it -- undermined the middle class and helped create the greatest economic crisis of our time.So today, on this Labor Day, we reaffirm our commitment. To rebuild. To live up to the legacy of those who came before us. To combine the enduring values that have served us so well for so long -- hard work and responsibility -- with new ideas for a new century. To ensure that our great middle class remains the backbone of our economy -- not just a vanishing ideal we celebrate at picnics once a year as summer turns to fall. We want it a reality for the families of Ohio and the families of America. (Applause.)That's what we've been working to do ever since I took office. Now, I notice some people have aly forgotten how bad it was just seven months ago. You notice that? They've got sort of selective amnesia. (Laughter.) So let's just remind them for a second. (Applause.) A financial system on the verge of collapse; about 700,000 workers losing their jobs each month; the worst recession of our lifetimes threatening to become another Great Depression. 09/83686
