I don't care whether you're driving a hybrid or an SUV. If you're headed for a cliff you have to change direction. That's what the American people called for in November and that's what we intend to deliver.

Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may make you feel like you're flying high at first, but it won't take long before you feel the impact.

We can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride but they gotta sit in back.

There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America - there's the United States of America.

I said that America's role would be limited, that we would not put ground troops into Libya, that we would focus our unique capabilities on the front end of the operation and that we would transfer responsibility to our allies and partners.

What do you think a stimulus is? It's spending - that's the whole point! Seriously.

If you were successful somebody along the line gave you some help... Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business - you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.

I don't think marriage is a civil right but I think that being able to transfer property is a civil right.

We didn't become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. We didn't come this far by letting the special interests run wild.

I mean I do think at a certain point you've made enough money.

I'm a warrior for the middle class.

I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because in an economy like this the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.

No party has a monopoly on wisdom. No democracy works without compromise. But when Governor Romney and his allies in Congress tell us we can somehow lower our deficit by spending trillions more on new tax breaks for the wealthy - well you do the math.
