On His Record of His Term in Office

"When I look back on 2008, the promises that I made — I said I'd end the war in Iraq; I did. I said that I'd go after al-Qaeda and bin Laden; we did. I said that I'd give middle-class families a tax cut; they're paying on average about $3,600 less than they were when I came into office. I said that I would make sure that every American family has some security when it comes to health insurance; we got it done. ... So we haven't gotten everything done that I promised, but a big chunk of what I said I would do in 2008 we have done."
