演讲文本US President's speech on energy (April 16,2005) THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. American families and small businesses across the country are feeling the pinch from rising gas prices. If you're trying to meet a family budget or a payroll, even a small change at the pump can have a big impact. America's prosperity depends on reliable, affordable and secure sources of energy. And today our energy needs are growing faster than our domestic sources are able to provide. Demand for electricity has grown more than 17 percent in the past decade, while our transmission ability lags behind. And we continue to import more than one-half of our domestic oil supply. In the coming days and weeks I'll talk more about what we need to do in Washington to make sure America has an energy policy that reflects the demands of a new century. The first order of business is for Congress to pass an energy bill. Next week Congress begins debate on energy legislation and they need to send me a bill that meets four important objectives: First, the energy bill must encourage the use of technology to improve conservation. We must find smarter ways to meet our energy needs, and we must encourage Americans to make better choices about energy consumption. We must also continue to invest in research, so we will develop the technologies that would allow us to conserve more and be better stewards of the environment. Second, the energy bill must encourage more production at home in environmentally sensitive ways. Over the past three years, America's energy consumption has increased by about 4 percent, while our domestic energy production has decreased by about 1 percent. That means more of our energy is coming from abroad. To meet our energy needs and strengthen our national security we must make America less dependent on foreign sources of energy. Third, the energy bill must diversify our energy supply by developing alternative sources of energy like ethanol or biodiesel. We need to promote safe, clean nuclear power. And to create more energy choices, Congress should provide tax credits for renewable power sources such as wind, solar, and landfill gas. We must also continue our clean coal technology projects so that we can use the plentiful source of coal in an environmentally friendly way. The bill must also support pollution-free cars and trucks, powered by hydrogen fuel cells instead of gasoline. Finally, the energy bill must help us find better, more reliable ways to deliver energy to consumers. In some parts of the country, our transmission lines and pipelines are decades older than the homes and businesses they supply. Many of them are increasingly vulnerable to events that can interrupt and shut down power in entire regions of the country. We must modernize our infrastructure to make America's energy more secure and reliable. Every source of power that we use today started with the power of human invention, and those sources have served us well for decades. Now it's time to apply our knowledge and technology to keep the American Dream alive in this new century. There is nothing America cannot achieve when we put our mind to it. And I urge Congress to work out its differences and pass an energy bill that will help make America safer and more prosperous for the years to come. Thank you for listening. 200603/5039。

In the Americas its impact has been irresistible.民主在美洲一直有着不可抗拒的影响。America has been the New World in all tongues, to all peoples, not because this continent was a new-found land,美国历来是操不同语言的各国人民心中的新世界,这倒不是因为它是一片新发现的大陆but because all those who came here believed they could create upon this continent a new life—a life that should be new in freedom.而是因为所有来到这里的人都相信,他们能够在这片大陆上创造出新的生活——而且应当是自由的新生活。Its vitality was written into our own Mayflower Compact, into the Declaration of Independence,民主的生命力被记载在我们自己的五月花号公约中,被记载在独立宣言、into the Constitution of the ed States, into the Gettysburg Address.合众国宪法和盖茨堡演说中。Those who first came here to carry out the longings of their spirit, and the millions who followed, and the stock that sprang from them那些最先来到这里实现他们精神上的热望的人们、那些成千上万的后继者,以及这些人的子孙后代all have moved forward constantly and consistently toward an ideal which in itself has gained stature and clarity with each generation.在坚定不移地、始终如一地奔向一个理想,而这个理想在每一代人中逐渐成长和明确起来。The hopes of the Republic cannot forever tolerate either undeserved poverty or self-serving wealth.为了实现共和国的希望,既不能永无休止地容忍不该有的贫穷,也不能永无休止地容忍自私自利的财富。We know that we still have far to go; that we must more greatly build the security and the opportunity and the knowledge of every citizen,我们知道,我们还要上很长的一段路;我们必须根批国家资源和能力的条件,为每一个公民创造出更大的安全in the measure justified by the resources and the capacity of the land.更好的机会和更多的知识。But it is not enough to achieve these purposes alone.但是,仅仅达到这些目的是不够的。It is not enough to clothe and feed the body of this Nation, and instruct and inform its mind.使这个国家有衣穿和有饭吃是不够的,使它得到教诲和知识也是不够的。For there is also the spirit. And of the three, the greatest is the spirit.因为它还有精神。在身体、脑袋和精神三者中间,精神是最重要的。Without the body and the mind, as all men know, the Nation could not live.所有人都知道,没有身体和脑袋,这个国家就不能生存。But if the spirit of America were killed, even though the Nations body and mind, constricted in an alien world, lived on, the America we know would have perished.但是,如果美国精神遭到扼杀,我们所知道的美国就会灭亡,即使它的身体和脑袋蜷缩到完全不同的世界中依然生存。That spirit—that faith—speaks to us in our daily lives in ways often unnoticed, because they seem so obvious.那种精神——那种信念——在我们的日常生活中对我们说话。但它说话的方式常常不被注意,因为似乎太司空见惯了。02/439532。

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENTON IMPROVING VETERANS’ HEALTH CAREDwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office BuildingRoom 45011:54 A.M. EDTTHE PRESIDENT: Thank you, John, for your outstanding service, and your friendship is greatly appreciated. I want to thank my two outstanding Secretaries who are behind me -- Bob Gates, who is doing just an extraordinary job over at the Pentagon, and General Shinseki, now Secretary Shinseki, who has served our country with extraordinary valor.I also want to acknowledge all the wounded warriors and veterans and all those who care for them who are here today. You make us very, very proud.To the VSO and MSO leaders who work hard on behalf of those who serve this nation, thank you for your advocacy and your hard work. As I look out in the audience, especially seeing these folks in their uniforms, I am reminded of the fact that we have the best fighting force in world history, and the reason we do is because of all of you. And so I'm very grateful for what you've done to protect and serve this country.It is good to be back. We've had a productive week working to advance America's interests around the world. We worked to renew our alliances to enhance our common security. We collaborated with other nations to take steps towards rebuilding the global economy, which will revitalize our own. And before coming home, I stopped to visit with our men and women who are serving bravely in Iraq. First and foremost, I wanted to say "thank you" to them on behalf of a grateful nation. They've faced extraordinary challenges, and they have performed brilliantly in every mission that's been given to them. They have given Iraq the opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country, and that is a great gift.You know, we often talk about ideals like sacrifice and honor and duty. But these men and women, like the men and women who are here, embody it. They have made sacrifices many of us cannot begin to imagine.We're talking about men like Specialist Jake Altman and Sergeant Nathan Dewitt, two of the soldiers who I had the honor to meet when I was in Baghdad. In 2007, as Specialist Altman was clearing mines so that other soldiers might travel in safety, he lost his hand when an IED struck his vehicle. And at Walter Reed, he asked to relearn the skills necessary to perform his duties with a prosthetic so that he could rejoin his old battalion. Sergeant Dewitt was severely injured in an attack last September, but he refused to let his injuries stop him from giving first aid to his wounded comrades. Today, they're both back alongside their fellow soldiers in their old units.And we're talking about women like Tammy Duckworth, who I think is here -- Tammy, where are you? There you are -- a great friend who lost her legs when a rocket struck the Black Hawk helicopter she was piloting over Iraq. And when she returned home, she continued to serve her country heading the Department of Veterans Affairs in Illinois, and she serves her country still as my nominee for Assistant Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs.We're talking about heroes like all the service members and veterans of the ed States Armed Forces, including the veterans who've joined us here today -- many who gave up much yet signed up to give more; many with their own battles still to come; all with their own stories to tell.For their service and sacrifice, warm words of thanks from a grateful nation are more than warranted, but they aren't nearly enough. We also owe our veterans the care they were promised and the benefits that they have earned. We have a sacred trust with those who wear the uniform of the ed States of America. It's a commitment that begins at enlistment, and it must never end.04/66687。

NATIONAL EQUAL PAY DAY, - - - - - - -BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAA PROCLAMATIONHarriet Beecher Stowe helped galvanize the abolitionist movement with her groundbreaking literature. Frances Perkins advised President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and led the Department of Labor during one of its most challenging periods in history. Barbara McClintock helped unlock the mysteries of genetics and earned a Nobel Prize. These and countless other women have broken barriers and changed the course of our history, allowing women and men who followed them the opportunity to reach greater heights.Despite these achievements, 46 years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act and 233 years since our Nation was established with the principle of equal justice under law, women across America continue to experience discrimination in the form of pay inequity every day. Women in the ed States earn only 78 cents for every dollar a man earns, and today marks the inauspicious occasion when a woman's earnings finally catch up with a man's from the previous year. On National Equal Pay Day, we underscore the importance of this issue to all Americans.If we wish to honor our Nation's highest ideals, we must end wage discrimination. The Founders established a timeless framework of rights for the American people. Generation after generation has worked and sacrificed so that this framework might be applied equally to all Americans. To honor these Americans and stay true to our founding ideals, we must carry forward this tradition and breathe life into these principles by supporting equal pay for men and women.Wage discrimination has a tangible and negative impact on women and families. When women receive less than their deserved compensation, they take home less for themselves and their loved ones. Utilities and groceries are more difficult to afford. Mortgages and rent bills are harder to pay. Children's higher education is less financially feasible. In later years of life, the retirement that many women have worked so hard for—and have earned—is not possible. This problem is particularly dire for women who are single and the sole supporters of their families. Women should not and need not endure these consequences.My Administration is working to advance pay equity in the ed States. The first bill I signed into law as President, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of , allows more women to challenge pay discrimination by extending the timeline within which complaints can be filed. This law advances the strugglefor equal pay, but it is only an initial step. To continue this progress, I issued an Executive Order establishing the White House Council on Women and Girls. This high-level body, composed of Cabinet members and heads of sub-Cabinet agencies, is charged with advancing the rights and needs of women, including equal pay.Still, Government can only advance this issue so far. The collective action of businesses, community organizations, and individuals is necessary to ensure that every woman receives just treatment and compensation. We Americans must come together to ensure equal pay for both women and men by reminding ourselves of the basic principles that underlie our Nation's strength and unity, understanding the unnecessary sacrifices that pay inequity causes, and recalling the countless women leaders who have proven what women can achieve.NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the ed States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the ed States, do hereby proclaim April 28, , as National Equal Pay Day. I call upon American men and women, and all employers, to acknowledge the injustice of wage discrimination and to commit themselves to equal pay for equal work.IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the ed States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.BARACK OBAMA 04/68324。

暂无音频REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENTAND SENATOR JUDD GREGG AT ANNOUNCEMENT OF COMMERCE SECRETARYGrand Foyer, The White HouseFebruary 3, THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. By now, our economic crisis is well-known. Our economy is shrinking. Unemployment rolls are growing. Businesses and families can't get credit, and small businesses can't secure the loans they need to create jobs and get their products to market.Now is the time for Washington to act with the same sense of urgency that Americans all across the country feel every single day. With the stakes this high, we cannot afford to get trapped in the same old partisan gridlock. That's why I've worked closely with leaders of both parties on a recovery and reinvestment plan that saves or creates more than three million jobs over the next two years, cuts taxes for 95 percent of American workers, and makes critical investments in our future -- in energy and education; health care and a 21st century infrastructure.We will act swiftly and we will act wisely. The vast majority of the investments in the plan will be made within the next 18 months -- immediately creating jobs and helping states avoid painful tax hikes and cuts to essential services. And every dime of the spending will be made available to the public on Recovery.gov -- so every American can see where their tax dollars are going.But as we act boldly and swiftly to shore up our financial system and revitalize our economy, we must also make sure that the underpinnings of that economy are sound; that our economic infrastructure is rebuilt to handle the traffic of the global economy; that our cutting-edge science and technology remain the envy of the world; that our policies promote the innovative and competitive nature of this economy, and facilitate the incubation and commercialization of our startups and small businesses -- the very engine of our job creation.These are the tasks of the Commerce Department. And I believe that Judd Gregg is the right person to help guide the department towards these goals.Judd discovered the family business at an early age. His father, Hugh Gregg, was elected the youngest governor of New Hampshire when Judd was a boy. At a time when the mills in Nashua closed down and folks were laid off, he watched his dad work tirelessly to attract new industry, the kind that created jobs that carried with them a sense of dignity and self-worth. Judd's father even found the time to publish a book titled, "All I Learned About Politics" -- and in keeping with his legendary sense of humor, all of its pages were blank.When the book is written about Judd Gregg, it will tell the story of a man with his own proud record of service on behalf of the American people. As a businessman, attorney, state executive councilor, congressman, governor in his own right, and now as a senator, he's seen from all angles what makes our economy work for communities, businesses, and families -- and what keeps it from working better. As former chairman of the Senate Budget Committee and Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Judd has been involved in nearly every facet of public policy. And as Commerce Subcommittee chair on the Senate Appropriations Committee, he's aly quite familiar with the department I've chosen him to lead.Judd is famous -- or infamous, depending on your perspective -- on Capitol Hill for his strict fiscal discipline. It's not that he enjoys saying "no" -- although if it's directed at your bill you might feel that way -- it's that he shares my deep-seated commitment to guaranteeing that our children inherit a future they can afford.02/61776。

THE PRESIDENT: It is my honor to welcome the U.S.-Brazil CEO Forum here to Washington. First of all, I want to thank my friend, President Lula, for encouraging this forum to go forward. It's an indication of the importance that we both place on our bilateral relations. Brazil is a very powerful, very important country in our neighborhood, and it's really important for this administration and future administrations to work closely with the Brazilian government, like it is important for our respective business communities to work closely together.   I do want to thank you all very much for putting forward a list of recommendations. I'm looking forward to our discussion. As I understand, the list of recommendations includes a successful Doha Round, as well as a bilateral tax treaty and a bilateral investment treaty. One of the things I will share with the Brazilian CEOs is that I strongly support a successful Doha Round, and our government will work closely with Brazil to get that done. And secondly, in terms of our bilateral policy, I also strongly, as does my administration, support a bilateral tax treaty and a bilateral investment treaty.   Relations between our two countries are very positive and they're very important. And so, thank you all for coming. Please give my best regards to President Lula. Thank you for being here. 200806/41455。

We urge all other people to join us, for success can mean life instead of death.我们呼吁其他各国人民加入我们的行列,因为此举的成功乃意味着生存,而不是死亡。Within us, the people of the ed States, there is evident a serious and purposeful rekindling of confidence.在我们美国人民中间,显然正在认真而有意识地重新振奋信心,And I join in the hope that when my time as your President has ended, people might say this about our Nation:而我则同样希望,在我的总统任期届满时,人们能这样论及我们的国家:that we had remembered the words of Micah and renewed our search for humility, mercy, and justice;我们牢记了弥迦的话,在对爱、怜悯和正义的寻求中注入了新的活力;that we had torn down the barriers that separated those of different race and region and religion,我们已经摧毁了将不同种族和不同宗教信仰的人们隔离开来的种种壁垒;and where there had been mistrust, built unity, with a respect for diversity;我们通过对多样化的尊重,在缺乏信任的地方实现了团结一致;that we had found productive work for those able to perform it;我们已经为具有工作能力的人们找到了生产性的工作;that we had strengthened the American family, which is the basis of our society;我们已经强化了充当我们社会基石的美国人的家庭纽带;that we had ensured respect for the law, and equal treatment under the law, for the weak and the powerful, for the rich and the poor;我们已经确保了对法律的尊重,所有人无分强弱贫富都能在法律面前得到平等待遇;and that we had enabled our people to be proud of their own Government once again.我们已经使我国人民能够重新为他们自己的政府感到骄傲。I would hope that the nations of the world might say that we had built a lasting peace,我衷心希望世界各国都会这样认为:我们业已确立了一种持久的和平,built not on weapons of war but on international policies which reflect our own most precious values.这种和平的基础不是炮,而是体现着我们最珍视的价值观念的各项国际政策。These are not just my goals, and they will not be my accomplishments,所有这些并不仅仅是我一个人的目标,而是我们大家共同的抱负;它们也不会是我个人的成就,but the affirmation of our Nations continuing moral strength and our belief in an undiminished, ever-expanding American dream.而将是我国持续不衰的道德力量的明,是我们从未消减和不断扩大的“美国梦”的明。 非常感谢大家。03/437824。

mp4 下载(316 MB)THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Please, everybody have a seat. Good afternoon. Before we begin, I'd actually like to say a few words about something that is of interest to the broader public. Obviously how we treat our veterans is hugely important, but I just want to make a quick comment about the decision made public today by Ken Feinberg on executive compensation.I've always believed that our system of free enterprise works best when it rewards hard work. This is America. We don't disparage wealth; we don't begrudge anybody for doing well. We believe in success. But it does offend our values when executives of big financial firms -- firms that are struggling -- pay themselves huge bonuses, even as they continue to rely on taxpayer assistance to stay afloat.And that's why last summer, we gave Ken Feinberg and his team the task of making an independent judgment on the executive pay packages for firms that received extraordinary assistance from the federal government. He was faced with the difficult task of striking the proper balance between standing up for taxpayers and returning a measure of stability to our financial system. Under these competing interests, I believe he's taken an important step forward today in curbing the influence of executive compensation on Wall Street while still allowing these companies to succeed and prosper.But more work needs to be done, which is why I urge the Senate to pass legislation that will give company shareholders a voice on the pay packages awarded to their executives. And I also urge Congress to continue moving forward on financial reform that will help prevent the crisis we saw last fall from happening again.Now, in just a few days -- a few weeks -- we will be observing Veterans Day. We'll pause again to pay tribute to all those who have worn America's uniform. We reflect on their sacrifices and those of their families -- citizens who've done their duty and who have fulfilled their responsibilities to their nation. As a nation, we'll pledge to fulfill our responsibilities to our veterans, because our commitment to our veterans is a sacred trust, and upholding that trust is a moral obligation.On that day, on Veterans Day, after all the parades and all the solemn ceremonies, a lot of veterans may ask: Does America really mean it? Will America keep its promise, not simply with words, but with deeds?Since taking office, my administration has worked hard with many of you to make sure that America fulfills our obligations to our veterans and their families. With Secretary Ric Shinseki in the lead, we're building a 21st century VA: We're harnessing technologies to cut the red tape and backlogs. We're investing in mobile clinics to reach rural areas. We're moving towards a single lifetime electronic health record for everyone in uniform. We're making it a top priority to end homelessness among our veterans.We dramatically increased funding for veterans health care: more care for women's veterans, for our wounded warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injuries. For 500,000 "Priority 8" veterans, we're restoring VA health care coverage.All told, we have made the biggest commitment to veterans -- the largest percentage increase in the VA budget -- in more than 30 years. (Applause.) And this includes funding the post-9/11 GI Bill -- making sure it works as intended so our newest veterans and their families have the chance to pursue their education and live out their dreams.So we're keeping our promises. We're making real progress for our vets -- like those with us today, including Maryland Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, the highest-ranking elected official in the nation who has served a tour of duty in Iraq. Thank you, Colonel Brown. (Applause.)But we're here today because a problem that's gone on for far too long -- the delays and uncertainty that often plague funding for veterans' health care. Over the past two decades, the VA budget has been late almost every year, often by months.At this very moment, the VA is operating without a budget, making it harder for VA medical centers and clinics to deliver the care our vets need. The hardworking folks at the VA know this. I was there at headquarters this spring. Michelle was there -- if I'm not mistaken, Ric -- just this Tuesday. It's frustrating for them and it's frustrating for our vets who pay the price when budgets are delayed: the new doctors, nurses, and critical staff that aren't hired; the new medical equipment that isn't purchased; the construction of new facilities and clinics that isn't started; the new programs for medical care that are delayed.This is inexcusable. It's unacceptable. It's time for it to stop. And that's just what we'll do with this landmark legislation -- the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act.I want everybody to know today is a victory for all the veterans' organizations who are represented on this stage who fought for years for reform. (Applause.) They deserve a huge congratulations. (Applause.) Today is a tribute to those who led the fight in Congress: Senator -- and World War II vet -- Danny Akaka, and Representative Bob Filner -- thank you for your leadership. (Applause.)All the leaders who made this possible, starting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who made this commitment to veterans organizations when she became Minority Leader. (Applause.) I was told some people didn't believe Nancy when she made that promise. (Laughter.) Nancy keeps her promises, and I want all our vets to remember that.Senator Tim Johnson -- for his great work in the Senate. (Applause.) Somebody who has been fighting for veterans since he entered into Congress and is just tireless on this issue -- Chet Edwards. Please give Chet a big round of applause. (Applause.) The other members of Congress who worked so hard: Michael Michaud -- (applause) -- Phil Hare -- Phil is right here. (Applause.) Harry Brown -- Harry Brown did great work on this. (Applause.) And so many others. This is a reminder of what's possible when we come together, Democrats and Republicans, to do right by our veterans.And let me say that I take special pride in this legislation because as a senator I was a proud co-sponsor of this legislation. I served on the Veterans Affairs Committee. In the campaign last year, you all remember, I made a promise to pass it. And today as President, I'm fulfilling that promise and I'm going to sign it into law. (Applause.)With this legislation we're fundamentally reforming how we fund health care for our veterans. With advance appropriations, veterans' medical care will be funded a year in advance. For the VA, this means timely, sufficient and predictable funding from year to year. For VA hospitals and clinics, it means more time to budget, to recruit high-quality professionals, and to invest in new health care equipment.And most of all, for our veterans it will mean better access to the doctors and nurses and the medical care that they need: specialized care for our wounded warriors with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries, and the staffing to welcome back to the VA those half-million "Priority 8" vets.In short, this is common-sense reform. It promotes accountability at the VA. It ensures oversight by Congress. It is fiscally responsible by not adding a dime to the deficit. And it ensures that veterans' health care will no longer be held hostage to the annual budget battles in Washington. (Applause.)Of course, as we all know, keeping faith with our veterans is work that is never truly done. Today's veterans expect and deserve the highest-quality care -- as will tomorrow's veterans, especially our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. And should they ask this Veterans Day, will America back up its words with deeds -- because of everyone in this room, because of this reform legislation, the answer will be, yes, the ed States of America will keep our promise to our veterans. We will fulfill our responsibilities. We will uphold our obligations to all who serve. And that's why I am thrilled to be signing this legislation into law right now.Thank you very much. God bless you. (Applause.)(The bill is signed.) (Applause.)END 2:39 P.M. EDT10/87443。
