One of the requirements I have used during my political career to decide whether we should do something is the issue of fairness.

The economy is showing encouraging signs of recovery.

I do not want our children and grandchildren to live in a world where everyday they fear some regional strongman with weapons of mass destruction. We need to send a message to these future would-be bullies: you will not be allowed to threaten the world.

I want to make it clear publicly that I expect more candor from this Administration during the next four years, particularly with members on the Foreign Relations Committee so that we can maintain a bipartisan foreign policy.

Liberating Iraq from a legacy of violence and putting it on the path to peace and prosperity will take time.

We are in a struggle to secure a future free from fear for our country and the world.

We need to stay in Iraq until the job is done. The President understands this and I'm glad that he is getting more countries to participate. We must change the chant of millions of young Muslims from 'Jihad Against the World' to 'Freedom and Democracy.'

No one really is excited about him.
