It's no exaggeration to say that the undecideds could go one way or another.
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.
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 think the 24-hour news cycle has helped exaggerate the differences between the parties. You can always find someone on TV somewhere carping about something. That didn't happen 20 years ago.
I stand for anti-bigotry, anti-Semitism, and anti-racism.
A new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man's heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree.
America is never wholly herself unless she is engaged in high moral principle. We as a people have such a purpose today. It is to make kinder the face of the nation and gentler the face of the world.
Read my lips: no new taxes.
I will keep America moving forward, always forward, for a better America, for an endless enduring dream and a thousand Points of Light. This is my mission, and I will complete it.
I'll be glad to reply to or dodge your questions, depending on what I think will help our election most.
What's wrong with being a boring kind of guy?
I am not one who - who flamboyantly believes in throwing a lot of words around.
I think I'd be a better president because I was in combat.
I think when you see an aircraft fire, these angry, black puffs of smoke, knowing that one of them could kill you that you - you - you understand the seriousness of the mission. And you understand your own mortality.
Our God is a forgiving God.
We are not the sum of our possessions.
Debates, I hate.
Gulf Lesson One is the value of airpower.
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.
The U.S.S. George H. W. Bush is a great thing in my life. It's amazing. A great honor.
But let me tell you, this gender thing is history. You're looking at a guy who sat down with Margaret Thatcher across the table and talked about serious issues.
It's a very good question, very direct, and I'm not going to answer it.
I think in defeat you grope for things that are happy, and it's hard.

I hope my own children never have to fight a war.
Please don't ask me to do that which I've just said I'm not going to do, because you're burning up time. The meter is running through the sand on you, and I am now filibustering.
We can realise a lasting peace and transform the East-West relationship to one of enduring co-operation.
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.

The glory of being a carrier pilot has certainly worn off.
I can't ever remember sitting around and saying, 'gosh let's hurry up and get these debates going, that'll win it for me.' Nope.
Every loss of life is terrible.
I like a colorful sock. I'm a sock man.
Poland should be strong and prosperous and independent and play its proper role as a great nation in the heart of Europe.
Losing is tough.
The day will come - and it is not far off - when the legacy of Lincoln will finally be fulfilled at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, when a black man or woman will sit in the Oval Office. When that day comes, the most remarkable thing about it will be how naturally it occurs.
Ageing's alright, better than the alternative, which is not being here.
As his vice president for eight years, I learned more from Ronald Reagan than from anyone I encountered in all my years of public life.
I have survivor's curiosity, I guess.
I can tell you this: If I'm ever in a position to call the shots, I'm not going to rush to send somebody else's kids into a war.
I have been very happy in the House of Representatives.
Old guys can still do fun things.
Many schools include a service project as part of their curriculum, and many corporations have in-house projects for their employees or give them time off to do volunteer work.
I have a form of Parkinson's disease, which I don't like. My legs don't move when my brain tells them to. It's very frustrating.
You have to understand that people that are hurting are going to criticize.
I'm a conservative, but I'm not a nut about it.
Lincoln said you cannot be President without spending some item on your knees. I have repeated that and a bunch of Atheists got all over me. Wait a minute. Does that mean that you cannot be President if you are an Atheist? I say yea that does mean that.
For 18 years I have resisted talking about current events. I am not going to start now.
I don't write letters anymore.
Never ask anyone over 70 how they feel. They'll tell you.
Well, I think everybody is frustrated by the finances of the U.N. and the inability to solve problems of war and peace.
You know I vowed when I became President not to talk about the loneliest toughest job in the world and I didn't.
History will point out some of the things I did wrong and some of the things I did right.
No, I'm not anguished and tormented.
I know my serve stinks, but I was a pretty good tennis player.
I was offered a job on Wall Street by my uncle. But I wanted to get out. Make-it-on-my-own kinda thing.
It's much worse to read criticism about your son than yourself.
