President Bush Attends Rededication Ceremony of the Intrepid Sea, Air amp; Space MuseumTHE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. Thank you for the warm welcome. Be seated. Charles and Rich, thanks a lot. I gratefully accept the Freedom Award. And I'm honored to be with you today as we rededicate a great monument to freedom: the Intrepid Sea, Air amp; Space Museum. At this ceremony, we recognize nearly 55,000 Americans who served aboard the USS Intrepid, including some who are here today. And we commemorate Veterans Day by honoring all those who have worn the uniform of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps. Thank you for serving our great nation. (Applause.) I am proud to be traveling with the First Lady of the ed States, Laura Bush -- (applause) -- the most patient woman in America. (Laughter.) Governor, thank you for joining us; Secretary Kempthorne. Senator Hillary Clinton, I'm proud to be with you. Thank you for being here. (Applause.) Congressman Pete King, Congressman Charlie Rangel, Congress Anthony Weiner -- thank you all for joining us today. Looking forward to that lame-duck session, aren't we? (Laughter.)What an awesome guy General Jim Conway is, Commandant of the ed States Marine Corps and member of the Joint Chiefs. (Applause.) Christine Quinn, thank you for your remarks. Bill White, the Vanna White of the Intrepid. (Laughter.) Arnold Fisher and the Fisher family -- what a fabulous contribution the Fishers have made to the ed States of America, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. (Applause.)John Rich, fellow Texan. John, tell them we're coming home, and we're coming home with our heads held high. (Applause.)Members of the Intrepid Museum and Foundation Board of Trustees, Wounded Warriors -- you know, oftentimes they ask me, what are you going to miss about the presidency? And first reaction is, I say, no traffic jams in New York. The truth of the matter is, I will miss being the Commander-in-Chief of such a fabulous group of men and women -- those who wear the uniform of the ed States military. (Applause.)Veterans Day has a long and solemn history. The event that inspired it took place 90 years ago today, in a small railway car in a French forest. November the 11th, 1918, the Allied Powers and Germany signed an armistice that ended one of the bloodiest wars the world had ever witnessed. By the time that day arrived, World War I had raged for more than four years, and more than 8 million soldiers had given their lives. But on the 11th hour of the 11th day of that 11th month, the guns fell silent -- and peace began to return to Europe.To commemorate the war's end, President Woodrow Wilson declared that November the 11th should be remembered as Armistice Day -- a holiday to honor the brave sacrifices of the American soldiers who defended democracy and freedom overseas. Today, we know it as Veterans Day -- a day when we celebrate and thank and honor every man and woman who have served in our Armed Forces. These noble Americans are our sons and daughters. They are our fathers and mothers. They are our family and they are our friends. They leave home to do the work of patriots -- and they lead lives of quiet dignity when they return. Today we send a clear message to all who have worn the uniform: Thank you for your courage, thank you for your sacrifice, and thank you for standing up when your nation needed you most. (Applause.)In the years since we began celebrating Veterans Day, America's Armed Forces have defended our freedom in many conflicts. And in those conflicts, they have often relied on the might of the USS Intrepid.The great ship's keel was laid on December 1, 1941. Less than a week later, Pearl Harbor was attacked -- and America entered World War II. In the years to come, as the ed States Navy defended the freedom in the Pacific, the men of the Fighting I would be in the thick of the battle. The Intrepid participated in the invasion of the Marshall Islands. She played a key role in the amphibious assault on Okinawa. She was part of one of the greatest sea battles in history: the Battles of Leyte Gulf.In that massive engagement, American forces faced some of the most formidable elements of the Japanese Navy. The Japanese fleet included the Yamamato* and the Musashi -- these were the heaviest and the largest battleships ever constructed. The Imperial Navy approached the coast of the Philippines from three different directions, and it was a fearsome challenge -- but the men of this ship were y. The Intrepid's Air Group fought courageously and without rest. By the time the battle ended three days later, the ed States Navy had sunk the Musashi to the ocean floor, and lifted hopes for victory in the Pacific.The war ended the following year, but the Intrepid's mission did not end. As the ed States raced into the new frontier of space, the Intrepid stood by to retrieve astronauts returning to Earth. During the Cold War, she patrolled the Mediterranean and helped force the surrender of pro-Castro terrorists who had hijacked a freighter in the Caribbean, and did three tours off the waters of Vietnam. For our nation's bicentennial celebration, the ed States Congress paid a fitting tribute to this ship's extraordinary service when they selected the Intrepid to represent the ed States Navy in Philadelphia. After more than 30 years at sea, the Intrepid was permanently decommissioned. Despite her amazing history, she was destined to be scrapped. But thanks to the work of the Intrepid Museum Foundation, she found a home in New York City. Since 1982, she has been a museum that educates new generations of Americans about the high price that those who came before them paid for their freedom.One of the veterans who has been honored here was a Navy pilot who flew Avenger torpedo planes during World War II. When he was invited onboard the Intrepid for the 50th anniversary of D-Day, he was moved to see that the museum had arranged for a vintage Avenger painted in the style of his unit to be right here on the deck. It just so happens that it was flanked by two of the men who had flown in his squadron. The man the Intrepid honored that day is a great American. He's a dedicated servant to this country, and I can tell you from personal experience he's a fabulous father. (Applause.)Even as a museum, the Intrepid still answered the call to service. I'm pretty certain most Americans don't understand what I'm about to tell you, but on September the 11th, when we came attacked just a few blocks from here, the Intrepid was used as an emergency command center. First responders launched helicopters from the decks. It became clear that this ship -- which helped defeat the great totalitarian threats of the 20th century -- was front and center in the opening moments of a new struggle against the forces of hatred and fear.The war on terror has required courage; it has required resolve equal to what previous generations of Americans brought to the fields of Europe and the deep waters of the Pacific. And I'm proud to report to my fellow citizens, our Armed Forces, the Armed Forces of this generation, have showed up for the fight, and America is more secure for it. (Applause.)This morning, Laura and I flew up here with some brave men and women who are keeping us safe. I want to introduce them to you. Staff Sergeant Michael Noyce-Merino was the first National Guardsman ever to be named the Army's Noncommissioned Officer of the Year. Senior Airman Alicia Goetschel was named one of the Air Force's Outstanding Airmen of the Year for her work in keeping dangerous extremists off the streets of Iraq. Chief Petty Officer Shenequa Cox won several awards recognizing her as one of the Navy's finest sailors. Petty Officer First Class Chris Hutto was honored as the Coast Guard's Enlisted Person of the Year. And ed States Marine Sergeant John Badon's bravery earned him two Purple Hearts for his service in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Where are my new pals? God bless you. (Applause.)They are representative of the finest our nation offers. And they have the support of strong and caring and loving families. And so on this Veterans Day, not only do we honor those who have worn the uniform, those who are wearing the uniform -- we honor their families. And we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.We have a moral obligation to support our families, and we have a moral obligation to support our veterans. It has been my privilege to work with members of the ed States Congress to nearly double the funding for those who have worn the uniform. It has been my privilege to work to implement the recommendations from the Dole-Shalala Commission, to make sure that we have a mental health care system and physical health care system worthy of the sacrifice of those who have worn the uniform.It has been my privilege to work with the ed States Congress to expand education benefits for both members of our military as well as our veterans. It has been my privilege to say loud and clear to our veterans, we love you, we respect you, and we thank you for serving the ed States of America. (Applause.)And I love what the Intrepid Relief Fund and the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund have done to support our veterans, as well. It provided more than 0 million to military families in need. The Intrepid's Fisher House program has provided temporary housing for families of servicemen and women receiving medical treatment.At the Center for the Intrepid's physical rehabilitation facility in San Antonio, Texas, America's wounded warriors receive some incredible medical care. I have seen what happens in this place of healing and hope firsthand. The Intrepid Center brings great compassion to those who have worn and are wearing the uniform. It also shows that the American people are incredibly generous in supporting the veterans. And I want to thank the Intrepid members, and those who support the Intrepid foundations, for your work on behalf of our country. Throughout the decades, our servicemen and women have shown a spirit of selfless courage. I was impressed by the story of Alonzo Swann, who on October 29, 1944, here on the deck of the Intrepid, had to help his fellow sailors deal with a kamikaze attack. He saw his best friend burning alive and caught in a gun mount. He rushed into the flames. He attempted to save his buddy, but before he could do so, an ammunition then detonated; nine were killed, six injured, including Alonzo.For his bravery, he was awarded the Bronze Star. It's a high honor, but a lot of folks didn't think it was a high enough honor. They felt he deserved the Navy Cross, and many believed that he had been denied the Navy Cross because of the color of his skin; he was an African American. For 50 years, his advocates petitioned the government -- and for 50 years they were unsuccessful. But he kept the faith. November 3, 1993, under the presidency of my predecessor, President Bill Clinton, right here on the deck of the Intrepid, Alonzo Swann finally received his Navy Cross. And I want people to listen to what he said. He said, If you think you're right, fight your heart out. That ought to be the motto of the modern ed States military. You think you're right, and you're fighting your heart out for the sake of peace and freedom, and we thank you for it. (Applause.)Laura and I are honored to be here. We're honored to see this majestic place. I love the fact that parents can answer a child's question about Why fight? with this answer: These brave souls fought for freedom, they fought for liberty, and they fought to guarantee the rights given to us by our Creator, and that has been the history of our Armed Forces -- brave folks, the mightiest defenders of those unalienable rights.So on behalf of a grateful nation, I thank our veterans for your service, for your commitment. May God bless you, and may God continue to bless the ed States of America. (Applause.)200811/56045President Bush Meets with Representatives of American Businesses on the Economic Rescue PackageTHE PRESIDENT: I want to thank the job creators who have joined me here today to talk about the state of the economy and the need for the House of Representatives to pass the bill that passed the Senate last night with an overwhelming bipartisan majority. Our discussion today centered around credit. I know there's a lot of discussions in the newspapers and on TV about the credit freeze. Well, let me tell you what this means. It means that if you're running a small company and you need to make payroll, or you need to make sure you got inventory to be able to sell a product, or you want to expand so you can hire somebody, you need to have credit. You need to be able to have money on a regular basis from your local banker. And the problem is, because people are worried about their future, they're worried the government won't act, credit is frozen. People aren't lending money from bank to bank or they're not lending money to our medium- and small-sized businesses. And that means people's jobs are in jeopardy. And the bill that's before the House of Representatives tomorrow is a bill that has got the best chance of providing liquidity, providing credit, providing money so small businesses and medium-sized businesses can function. A lot of people are watching the House of Representatives now to determine whether or not they will be able to act positively on a bill that has been improved. People say, what do you mean by that? Well, the insurance for the FDIC goes up to 0,000. That's an improvement to the legislation -- not only for banks but for credit unions, as well. And so I'm talking to people who are, you know, who come from the heartland, that understand what's taking place in our economy today; people who understand that the House of Representatives needs to pass this piece of legislation. And I want to thank you all for going up and telling these members of Congress what's on your mind and how this affects your businesses at home, and how it affects the communities in which you live. This thing -- this issue has gone way beyond New York and Wall Street. This is an issue that's affecting hardworking people. They're worried about their savings, they're worried about their jobs, they're worried about their houses, they're worried about their small businesses. And the House of Representatives must listen to these voices and get this bill passed so we can get about the business of restoring confidence. Thank you very much. 200810/51527



  President Obama and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former President of Denmark, address the press after meeting in the Oval Office to discuss progress in Afghanistan. September 29, . (Public Domain) President Obama and NATO Secretary General Rasmussen on Afghanistan, Russia from White House on Vimeo.发言文本:PRESIDENT OBAMA: Hello, everybody. I just want to welcome Secretary General Rasmussen to the Oval Office. He and I had the opportunity to get to know each other at the NATO summit in Strasbourg, at which he was nominated and then selected as the new Secretary General of NATO. I can say that, given his experience as a head of state, that everybody had confidence in his decisive and effective leadership abilities. That confidence has proven justified. In the brief time that he has been in NATO, I think he's aly shown himself to be an active and effective Secretary General, interested in reforming and renewing the NATO Alliance, and always rooted in the understanding that this is the most successful military alliance in history and the cornerstone of transatlantic relationships.We had a very fruitful discussion while he was here. We talked about, obviously, the most important NATO mission right now, and that is Afghanistan. And we both agree that it is absolutely critical that we are successful in dismantling, disrupting, destroying the al Qaeda network, and that we are effectively working with the Afghan government to provide the security necessary for that country. This is not a American battle; this is a NATO mission, as well. And we are working actively and diligently to consult with NATO at every step of the way. And I'm very grateful for the leadership that Secretary General Rasmussen has shown in committing NATO to a full partnership in this process.We also discussed missile defense, and we both agreed that the configuration that we have proposed is one that ultimately will serve the interests of not only the ed States, but also NATO Alliance members most effectively. It allows for a full collaboration with NATO members, and we are very optimistic that it will achieve our aims and deal with the very real threat of ballistic missiles.We also agree that it is important for us to reach out to Russia and explore ways in which the missile defense configurations that we envision could potentially lead to further collaboration with Russia on this front; and that we want to improve generally not only U.S.-Russian relations, but also NATO-Russian relations, while making absolutely clear that our commitments to all of our allies in NATO is sacrosanct and that our commitment to Article 5 continues.Finally, we discussed the process that we're putting forward for a strategic concept review. NATO has been so successful that sometimes I think that we forget this was shaped and crafted for a 20th century landscape. We're now well into the 21st century, and that means that we are going to have to constantly renew and revitalize NATO to meet current threats and not just past threats. There has been a process that has been put forward; we are fully supportive of it. I am confident that under Secretary General Rasmussen's leadership that it will ultimately be successful, and that we will continue to see NATO operate in a way that is good for U.S. national security interests, good for our allies, and good for the world.So, Mr. Secretary General, thank you for the excellent work that you're doing and we appreciate it very much. And please feel free to share a few words.SECRETARY GENERAL RASMUSSEN: Thank you very much, Mr. President, for your kind words. The President and I have had a very constructive meeting. I have thanked the President for his strong support. I look very much forward to cooperating with the President and his administration on reforming, transforming, and modernizing NATO. We are going to elaborate a new strategic concept, which I hope can serve as leverage for renewal of NATO.Of course, our main focus today has been our cooperation in Afghanistan. I say "our" focus deliberately because our operation in Afghanistan is not America's responsibility or burden alone. It is and it will remain a team effort. I agree with President Obama in his approach: strategy first, then resources. The first thing is not numbers. It is to find and fine-tune the right approach to implement the strategy aly laid down, and all NATO allies are right now looking at McChrystal's review.I'm convinced that success in Afghanistan is achievable and will be achieved. And don't make any mistake -- the normal discussion on the right approach should not be misinterpreted as lack of resolve. This Alliance will stand united and we will stay in Afghanistan as long as it takes to finish our job.As the President mentioned, we have also discussed missile defense. I welcome the new U.S. approach, which will allow all allies to participate, which will protect all allies. And in fact, I think the proposed new system can serve as an instrument to bind all allies -- new and old -- even stronger together.Thank you.09/85723。

  THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. This week, millions of Americans gather with loved ones for Christmas. This is a season of hope and joy. And it is an occasion to remember a humble birth that has helped shape the world for more than two thousand years. One of the things that makes Christmas special is that it allows us to step back and take stock of what is truly meaningful in our lives. As years pass by, we often forget about the gifts and the parties, but we remember special moments with families and friends. This year, as you spend time with those you love, I hope you'll also take time to remember the men and women of our armed forces. Every one of them has volunteered to serve our Nation. And with their incredible sacrifices, they preserve the peace and freedom that we celebrate during this season. This tradition of service is as old as our Nation itself. In 1776, it looked as if America's first Christmas as an independent Nation might also be its last. After a series of crippling defeats by the British, George Washington's army was exhausted and disheartened. With their terms of service expiring in just a few weeks, many soldiers were planning on leaving the army. And it seemed that without a miracle, America's fight for freedom would be doomed. That miracle took place on Christmas night, 1776. George Washington planned a surprise attack on the enemy forces camped across the Delaware River in Trenton, New Jersey. Under the cover of darkness, he led a few thousand soldiers across the icy waters in the midst of a driving snowstorm. Most generals would not have taken such a risk. But the commitment of Washington and his men was absolute. They headed into battle with a bold password -- "Victory or death." In a matter of hours, victory was theirs. Morale immediately improved. And the American people began to believe that our Nation possessed the perseverance and courage to protect our liberty. The turnaround that began that night would end with the ed States' triumph in the American Revolution -- and the permanent establishment of a free Nation. Two hundred and thirty-two years have passed since George Washington crossed the Delaware. But on this Christmas, his legacy lives on in the men and women of the ed States military. Some of them are spending this holiday helping defend emerging democracies like Iraq and Afghanistan. Others are spending it in lands where we defeated tyranny long ago, such as Germany or Japan. And some of them are spending it stateside, recovering in places like Bethesda National Naval Medical Center or Walter Reed. Regardless of where they are, our men and women in uniform and the families who support them remind us of a clear lesson: Defending freedom is a full-time job. Our enemies do not take holidays. So the members of our armed forces stand y to protect our freedom at any hour. For their service, they have the thanks of a grateful Nation -- this Christmas and always. Thank you for listening. 200812/59523

  Ladies and Gentlemen: Im only going to talk to you just for a minute or so this evening, because I have some very sad news for all of you -- Could you lower those signs, please? -- I have some very sad news for all of you, and, I think, sad news for all of our fellow citizens, and people who love peace all over the world; and that is that Martin Luther King was shot and was killed tonight in Memphis, Tennessee.Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the ed States, its perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black -- considering the evidence evidently is that there were white people who were responsible -- you can be filled with bitterness, and with hatred, and a desire for revenge.We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization -- black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand, and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has sp across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love.For those of you who are black and are tempted to be filled with hatred and mistrust of the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I would only say that I can also feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man.But we have to make an effort in the ed States, we have to make an effort to understand, to get beyond, or go beyond these rather difficult times.My favorite poem, my favorite poet was Aeschylus. And he once wrote:Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forgetfalls drop by drop upon the heart,until, in our own despair,against our will,comes wisdomthrough the awful grace of God.What we need in the ed States is not division; what we need in the ed States is not hatred; what we need in the ed States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.So I ask you tonight to return home, to say a prayer for the family of Martin Luther King -- yeah, its true -- but more importantly to say a prayer for our own country, which all of us love -- a prayer for understanding and that compassion of which I spoke.We can do well in this country. We will have difficult times. Weve had difficult times in the past. And we will have difficult times in the future. It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness; and its not the end of disorder.But the vast majority of white people and the vast majority of black people in this country want to live together, want to improve the quality of our life, and want justice for all human beings that abide in our land.Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say a prayer for our country and for our people.Thank you very much. /201205/182108【导言】新华网伦敦5月11日电(记者 郭瑞 康逸)英国保守党领袖卡梅伦11日晚接任首相职务,他应女王伊丽莎白二世的要求着手组建新一届政府。  卡梅伦在唐宁街10号首相官邸前发表讲话说,他和自由民主党领导人克莱格将抛开政党分歧,为了公众和国家的利益而努力工作。为此,他将与自民党结成联盟,组建一个“强大而稳定的政府”。 We have a parliamentary system, not a presidential system, in this country. As I said on Friday, with no party able to command a parliamentary majority arising from the General Election, my constitutional duty as Prime Minister is to ensure government continues while parties explore options for forming a new administration with majority support in the House of Commons.The business of government has continued, including concerted action in Europe today to avert the financial crisis in the euro area. Alistair Darling, the Chancellor, spent much of his time yesterday at the European finance ministers' meeting in Brussels.This morning, I had conversations with the president of the European Council, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund and the president of the European Central Bank. I have said I would do all I could to ensure that a stable, strong and principled government is formed, able to tackle Britain's economic and political challenges effectively.As we know, the Liberal Democrats felt they should first talk to the Conservative Party. Mr Clegg has just informed me that, while he intends to continue his dialogue that he has begun with the Conservatives, he now wishes also to take forward formal discussions with the Labour Party.I believe it is sensible and it is in the national interest to respond positively.The Cabinet will meet soon. A formal policy negotiating process is being established under the arrangements made by the Cabinet Secretary, similar to the negotiations between other parties.The first priority should be an agreed deficit reduction plan to support economic growth and a return to full employment.I know that both parties recognise the importance of ensuring economic stability in the markets and protecting Britain's standing and both are agreed on the need for a strong and full deficit reduction plan over the coming years.There is also a progressive majority in Britain and I believe it could be in the interests of the whole country to form a progressive coalition government.In addition to the economic priorities, in my view, only such a progressive government could meet the demand for political and electoral change which the British people made last Thursday.Our commitments on a new voting system for the House of Commons and for the election of the House of Lords are clearly part of this.I would however like to say something also about my own position.If it becomes clear that the national interest, which is stable and principled government, can be best served by forming a coalition between the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats, then I believe I should discharge that duty to form that government which would, in my view, command a majority in the House of Commons in the Queen's Speech and any other confidence votes.But I have no desire to stay in my position longer than is needed to ensure the path to economic growth is assured and the process of political reform we have agreed moves forward quickly.The reason that we have a hung Parliament is that no single party and no single leader was able to win the full support of the country.As leader of my party, I must accept that that is a judgment on me. I therefore intend to ask the Labour Party to set in train the processes needed for its own leadership election.I would hope that it would be completed in time for the new leader to be in post by the time of the Labour Party conference.I will play no part in that contest. I will back no individual candidate.I believe that the British people now want us to focus on the economy, the continuing fight against terrorism, the terrorist threat to our country.They want us to continue to pursue the economic recovery, and I will do so with my usual vigour and determination, and I will do all in my power to support the British troops whose service and sacrifice create a debt of gratitude we can never fully repay.And I believe on Thursday the country was also telling us that they want a new politics, and that the political reforms we seek will help deliver that change. I now intend to facilitate the discussions that the Liberal Democratic party has asked for. Thank you very much. As you will understand I will take no questions this evening. Other discussions can be had later.Thank you very much.201005/103548

  Transcript of the Prime Minister's broadcast on investment Wherever you look in our country, you can see the result of decades of under-investment. Children still being taught in cramped or prefab classrooms. Patients treated in wards built long before penicillin was discovered. Our railways and roads fall short of the standards we need. And that's not just bad for travellers but bad for our economy. And it's not just the fabric of our country which reveals the signs of this failure to invest. There was a chronic shortage of people, of teachers, doctors, nurses when we came into Government three years ago. Even worse, we found that training places and recruitment had often been cut back. Now I don't go along with those who claim, for example, that we have a third world health service. That's an insult to the dedicated doctors and nurses who work in the NHS. And it also ignores the fact that thousands of people every day get superb treatment and care. But we are now the fourth biggest economy in the world. And few people would claim we have the fourth best public services. I certainly don't. That's because for far too long - we haven't invested. We haven't looked to the long-term. We haven't invested for our future. And that's largely because of the cycle of boom and bust which has gripped our economy for so long. It meant sudden increases of investment followed by panic cut-backs which made it impossible to plan sensibly for the future. We were so determined to restore stability to the economy - even if it meant hard decisions and some unpopularity. We didn't ignore investment in our early years. Indeed we launched the biggest hospital building programme in the history of the health service. The first of these is aly open in Carlisle. We invested to make sure that infant class sizes have fallen. Over 10,000 schools have been re-furbished or repaired. Wherever you live, there'll be a school near you which has benefited. But there is a great deal more to do. And with inflation and interest rates low, billions saved in debt repayments and a record number of people in work, the country can now afford the sustained investment needed in our health service, schools, police and transport systems. It means a 150% increase in investment in public transport investment desperately needed for our roads and railways. Then there's a pound;1.4 billion increase in health spending on hospitals, clinics and equipment. And extra investment, too, for urgent repairs for 7,000 more schools. But there's little point in having wonderful new schools or hospitals if you don't have the trained staff to go into them. So we're working hard to tackle the shortage of nurses, doctors and teachers. We've reversed, for example, the short-sighted cuts in nurse training places. We've expanded medical schools and places. We are having some success, too - an increase of nearly 5,000 doctors in the health service in the last three years in the health service. An increase of 10,000 qualified nurses too. And this week we learnt that for the first time in eight years the number of teachers in training has risen. That is vital because it is the dedicated teachers who are delivering the real progress we're seeing in our schools. Good teachers can and do make a massive difference to the lives of the children they teach. Every day, in schools the length and bth of our country, the hard-work of dedicated teachers give our children the help and encouragement they need to realise their potential. For far too long however, teachers have felt under-valued and under-rewarded. And that's wrong when you think that there can be few jobs more fulfilling, more challenging or more important to our society's future than being a teacher. So this welcome increase in the numbers of teachers in training is a sign that we are beginning to get things right. But there's a lot more that we need to do. I want to see the best and the brightest sign up in their tens of thousands to become teachers, to join that education crusade. We need more teachers just as we need more doctors, more nurses, more modern schools and hospitals. It can't be done overnight. It takes years to build a new hospital or train new doctors. But our hard-won economic stability means we now have the chance at least to plan and invest for the long-term. A chance to end the years of neglect of our public services and deliver the world-class education, health and transport system that this country needs and deserves. It's a chance that we should all take. 200705/13312And now— now the Soviets themselves may, in a limited way, be coming to understand the importance of freedom. We hear much from Moscow about a new policy of reform and openness. Some political prisoners have been released. Certain foreign news broadcasts are no longer being jammed. Some economic enterprises have been permitted to operate with greater freedom from state control. Are these the beginnings of profound changes in the Soviet state? Or are they token gestures intended to raise false hopes in the West, or to strengthen the Soviet system without changing it? We welcome change and openness; for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty —the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace.There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev—Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! I understand the fear of war and the pain of division that afflict this continent, and I pledge to you my country's efforts to help overcome these burdens. To be sure, we in the West must resist Soviet expansion. So, we must maintain defenses of unassailable strength. Yet we seek peace; so we must strive to reduce arms on both sides. 201111/159996



  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

  It is the immediate way. It is the strongest assurance that the recovery will endure.是即时之路,是保复苏功效持久之路.In the field of world policy I would dedicate this Nation to the policy of the good neighbor—the neighbor who resolutely respects himself在国际政策方面,我将使美国采取睦邻友好的政策.做一个决心自重,and because he does so, respects the rights of others—the neighbor who respects his obligations and respects the sanctity of his agreements in and with a world of neighbors.因此而尊重邻国的国家.做一个履行义务,尊重与他国协约的国家.If I the temper of our people correctly, we now realize as we have never realized before our interdependence on each other;如果我对人民的心情的了解正确的话,我想我们已认识到了我们从未认识的问题,that we can not merely take but we must give as well; that if we are to go forward,我们是互相依存的,我们不可以只索取,我们还必须奉献.我们前进时,we must move as a trained and loyal army willing to sacrifice for the good of a common discipline,必须象一训练有素的忠诚的军队,愿意为共同的原则而献身,because without such discipline no progress is made, no leadership becomes effective.因为,没有这些原则,就无法取得进步,领导就不可能得力.We are, I know, y and willing to submit our lives and property to such discipline,我们都已做好准备,并愿意为此原则献出生命和财产,because it makes possible a leadership which aims at a larger good.因为这将使志在建设更美好社会的领导成为可能.This I propose to offer, pledging that the larger purposes will bind upon us all as a sacred obligation with a unity of duty hitherto evoked only in time of armed strife.我倡议,为了更伟大的目标,我们所有的人,以一致的职责紧紧团结起来.这是神圣的义务,非战乱,不停止.With this pledge taken, I assume unhesitatingly the leadership of this great army of our people dedicated to a disciplined attack upon our common problems.有了这样的誓言,我将毫不犹豫地承担领导伟大人民大军的任务,致力于对我们普遍问题的强攻.Action in this image and to this end is feasible under the form of government which we have inherited from our ancestors.这样的行动,这样的目标,在我们从祖先手中接过的政府中是可行的.Our Constitution is so simple and practical that it is possible always to meet extraordinary needs by changes in emphasis and arrangement without loss of essential form.我们的宪法如此简单,实在.它随时可以应付特殊情况,只需对重点和安排加以修改而不丧失中心思想,That is why our constitutional system has proved itself the most superbly enduring political mechanism the modern world has produced.正因为如此,我们的宪法体制已自为是最有适应性的政治体制.It has met every stress of vast expansion of territory, of foreign wars, of bitter internal strife, of world relations.它已应付过巨大的国土扩张、外战、内乱及国际关系所带来的压力.It is to be hoped that the normal balance of executive and legislative authority may be wholly adequate to meet the unprecedented task before us.而我们还希望行使法律的人士做到充分的平等,能充分地担负前所未有的任务.But it may be that an unprecedented demand and need for undelayed action may call for temporary departure from that normal balance of public procedure.但现在前所未有的对紧急行动的需要要求国民暂时丢弃平常生活节奏,紧迫起来.02/437191
