I am not one who - who flamboyantly believes in throwing a lot of words around.
I was offered a job on Wall Street by my uncle. But I wanted to get out. Make-it-on-my-own kinda thing.
We are a nation of communities... a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.
I'm going to be so much better a president for having been at the CIA that you're not going to believe it.
I'm a conservative, but I'm not a nut about it.
Read my lips: no new taxes.
I do not like broccoli. And I haven't liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I'm President of the United States and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli.
I have opinions of my own, strong opinions, but I don't always agree with them.
I'm conservative, but I'm not a nut about it.
I think in defeat you grope for things that are happy, and it's hard.
It's a very good question, very direct, and I'm not going to answer it.
You cannot be President of the United States if you don't have faith. Remember Lincoln, going to his knees in times of trial in the Civil War and all that stuff.

I hope my own children never have to fight a war.
It's no exaggeration to say that the undecideds could go one way or another.
I'm not trying to get myself up a notch on the ladder by shoving somebody else down on the ladder, whether it's a candidate or the president of the United States or anybody else. I just don't believe that's the way one oughta campaign, I've never done that.
