Hello, Chicago!

芝加哥,你好!

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

如果有人怀疑美国是个一切皆有可能的地方,怀疑美国奠基者的梦想在我们这个时代依然燃烧,怀疑我们民主的力量,那么今晚这些疑问都有了答案。 It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that difference.

学校和教堂门外的长龙便是答案。排队的人数之多,在美国历史上前所未有。为了投票,他们排队长达三、四个小时。许多人一生中第一次投票,因为他们认为这一次大选结果必须不同以往,而他们手中的一票可能决定胜负。

It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled — Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of red states and blue states; we are, and always will be, the United States of America.

无论年龄,无论贫富,无论民主党人或共和党人,无论黑人、白人,无论拉美裔、亚裔、印地安人, 无论同性恋、异性恋,无论残障人、健全人,所有的人,他们向全世界喊出了同一个声音:我们并不隶属 “红州”与 “蓝州”的对立阵营,我们属于美利坚合众国,现在如此,永远如此!

It's the answer that led those who have been told for so long by so many to be cynical, and fearful, and doubtful of what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day.

长久以来,很多人说:我们对自己的能量应该冷漠,应该恐惧,应该怀疑。但是,历史之轮如今已在我们手中,我们又一次将历史之轮转往更美好的未来。 It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.

漫漫征程,今宵终于来临。特殊的一天,特殊的一次大选,特殊的决定性时刻,美国迎来了变革。

I just received a very gracious call from Sen. McCain. He fought long and hard in this campaign, and he's fought even longer and harder for the country he loves. He has endured sacrifices for America that most of us cannot begin to imagine, and we are better off for the service rendered

by this brave and selfleleader. I congratulate him and Gov. Palin for all they have achieved, and I look forward to working with them to renew this nation's promise in the months ahead.

刚才,麦凯恩参议员很有风度地给我打了个电话。在这次竞选中,他的努力持久而艰巨。为了这个他挚爱的国家,他的努力更持久、更艰巨。他为美国的奉献超出绝大多数人的想象。他是一位勇敢无私的领袖,有了他的奉献,我们的生活才更美好。我对他和佩林州长的成绩表示祝贺。同时,我也期待着与他们共同努力,再续美国辉煌。

I want to thank my partner in this journey, a man who campaigned from his heart and spoke for the men and women he grew up with on the streets of Scranton and rode with on that train home to Delaware, the vice-president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden.

我要感谢我的竞选搭档——当选副总统乔?拜登。为了与他一起在斯克兰顿市街头长大、一起坐火车返回特拉华州的人们,拜登全心全意地竟选,他代表了这些普通人的声音。

I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years, the rock of our family and the love of my life, our nation's next first lady, Michelle Obama. Sasha and Malia, I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House. And while she's no longer with us, I know my grandmother is watching, along with the family that made me who I am. I mithem tonight, and know that my debt to them is beyond measure. 我要感谢下一位第一夫人米歇尔?奥巴马。她是我家的中流砥柱,是我生命中的最爱。没有她在过去16年来的坚定支持,今晚我就不可能站在这里。我要感谢两个女儿萨沙和玛丽娅,我太爱你们两个了,你们将得到一条新的小狗,它将与我们一起入住白宫。我还要感谢已去世的外婆,我知道此刻她正在天上注视着我。她与我的家人一起造就了今天的我。今夜我思念他们,他们对我的恩情比山高、比海深。

To my campaign manager, David Plouffe; my chief strategist, David Axelrod; and the best campaign team ever assembled in the history of politics — you made this happen, and I am forever grateful for what you've sacrificed to get it done.

我要感谢我的竞选经理大卫?普鲁夫,感谢首席策划师大卫?阿克塞罗德以及整个竞选团队,他们是政治史上最优秀的竞选团队。你们成就了今夜,我永远感谢你们为今夜所付出的一切。

But above all, I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to — it belongs to you.

但最重要的是,我将永远不会忘记这场胜利真正属于谁---是你们!

I was never the likeliest candidate for this office. We didn't start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington — it began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston.

我从来不是最有希望的候选人。起初,我们的资金不多,赞助人也不多。我们的竞选并非始于华盛顿的华丽大厅,而是起于德莫奈地区某家的后院、康科德

地区的某家客厅、查尔斯顿地区的某家前廊。

It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give $5 and $10 and $20 to this cause. It grew strength from the young people who rejected the myth of their generation's apathy; who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and lesleep; from the not-so-young people who braved the bitter cold and scorching heat to knock on the doors of perfect strangers; from the millions of Americans who volunteered and organized, and proved that more than two centuries later, a government of the people, by the people and for the people has not perished from this earth. This is your victory. 劳动大众从自己的微薄积蓄中掏出5美元、10美元、20美元,拿来捐助我们的事业。年轻人证明了他们绝非所谓“冷漠的一代”。他们远离家乡和亲人,拿着微薄的报酬,起早摸黑地助眩上了年纪的人也顶着严寒酷暑,敲开陌生人的家门助眩无数美国人自愿组织起来,充当自愿者。正是这些人壮大了我们的声势。他们的行动证明了在两百多年以后,民有、民治、民享的政府并未从地球上消失。这是你们的胜利。

I know you didn't do this just to win an election, and I know you didn't do it for me. You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime — two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century. Even as we stand here tonight, we know there are brave Americans waking up in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan to risk their lives for us. There are mothers and fathers who will lie awake after their children fall asleep and wonder how they'll make the mortgage, or pay their doctor's bills, or save enough for college. There is new energy to harneand new jobs to be created; new schools to build and threats to meet and alliances to repair.

你们这样做,并不只是为了赢得一场大选,更不是为了我个人。你们这样做,是因为你们清楚未来的任务有多么艰巨。今晚我们在欢庆,明天我们就将面对一生之中最为严峻的挑战--两场战争、一个充满危险的星球,还有百年一遇的金融危机。今晚我们在这里庆祝,但我们知道在伊拉克的沙漠里,在阿富汗的群山中,许许多多勇敢的美国人醒来后就将为了我们而面临生命危险。许许多多的父母会在孩子熟睡后仍难以入眠,他们正在为月供、医药费,孩子今后的大学费用而发愁。我们需要开发新能源,创造就业机会,建造新学校,迎接挑战和威胁,并修复与盟国的关系。

The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year, or even one term, but America — I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you: We as a people will get there.

前方道路还很漫长,任务艰巨。一年之内,甚至一届总统任期之内,我们可能都无法完成这些任务。但我从未像今晚这样对美国满怀希望,我相信我们会实现这个目标。我向你们承诺--我们美利坚民族将实现这一目标!

There will be setbacks and false starts. There are many who won't agree

with every decision or policy I make as president, and we know that government can't solve every problem. But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face. I will listen to you, especially when we disagree. And, above all, I will ask you join in the work of remaking this nation the only way it's been done in America for 221 years — block by block, brick by brick, callused hand by callused hand.

我们会遇到挫折,会出师不利,会有许多人不认同我的某一项决定或政策。政府并不能解决所有问题,但我会向你们坦陈我们所面临的挑战。我会聆听你们的意见,尤其是在我们意见相左之时。最重要的是,我会让你们一起重建这个国家。用自己的双手,从一砖一瓦做起。这是美国立国221年以来的前进方式,也是惟一的方式。

What began 21 months ago in the depths of winter must not end on this autumn night. This victory alone is not the change we seek — it is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were. It cannot happen without you.

21个月前那个隆冬所开始的一切,绝不应在这一个秋夜结束。我们所寻求的变革并不只是赢得大选,这只是给变革提供了一个机会。假如我们照老路子办事,就没有变革;没有你们,就没有变革。

So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism; of service and

responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves, but each other. Let us remember that if this financial crisis taught us anything, it's that we cannot have a thriving Wall Street while Main Street suffers. In this country, we rise or fall as one nation — as one people.

让我们重新发扬爱国精神,树立崭新的服务意识、责任感,每个人下定决心,一起努力工作,彼此关爱;让我们牢记这场金融危机带来的教训:不能允许商业街挣扎的同时却让华尔街繁荣。在这个国家,我们作为同一个民族,同生死共存亡。

Let us resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettineand immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long. Let us remember that it was a man from this state who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House — a party founded on the values of self-reliance, individual liberty and national unity. Those are values we all share, and while the Democratic Party has won a great victory tonight, we do so with a measure of humility and determination to heal the divides that have held back our progress.

党派之争、琐碎幼稚,长期以来这些东西荼毒了我们的政坛。让我们牢记,当来自伊利诺伊州的一位先生首次将共和党大旗扛进白宫时,伴随着他的是自强自立、个人自由、国家统一的共和党建党理念。这也是我们所有人都珍视的理念。虽然民主党今晚大胜,但我们态度谦卑,并决心弥合阻碍我们进步的分歧。 As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours, "We are not enemies, but friends... Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection." And, to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices,

I need your help, and I will be your president, too.

当年,林肯面对的是一个远比目前更为分裂的国家。他说:“我们不是敌人,而是朋友虽然激情可能不再,但是我们的感情纽带不会割断。”对于那些现在并不支持我的美国人,我想说,虽然我没有赢得你们的选票,但我听到了你们的声音,我需要你们的帮助,我也将是你们的总统。

And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of our world — our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand. To those who would tear this world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you. And to all those who have wondered if America's beacon still burns as bright: Tonight, we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.

对于关注今夜结果的国际人士,不管他们是在国会、皇宫关注,还是在荒僻地带收听电台,我们的态度是:我们美国人的经历各有不同,但我们的命运相关,新的美国领袖诞生了。对于想毁灭这个世界的人们,我们必将击败你们。对于追求和平和安全的人们,我们将支持你们。对于怀疑美国这盏灯塔是否依然明亮的人们,今天晚上我们已再次证明:美国的真正力量来源并非军事威力或财富规模,而是我们理想的恒久力量:民主、自由、机会和不屈的希望。

For that is the true genius of America — that America can change. Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.

美国能够变革,这才是美国真正的精髓。我们的联邦会不断完善。我们已经取得的成就,将为我们将来能够并且必须取得的成就增添希望。

This election had many firsts and many stories that will be told for generations. But one that's on my mind tonight is about a woman who cast her ballot in Atlanta. She's a lot like the millions of others who stood in line to make their voice heard in this election, except for one thing: Ann Nixon Cooper is 106 years old.

这次大选创造了多项“第一”,诞生了很多将流芳后世的故事,但今晚令我最为难忘的却是一位在亚特兰大投票的妇女:安妮?库波尔。她和无数排队等候投票的选民没有什么差别,唯一的不同是她高龄106岁。

She was born just a generation past slavery; a time when there were no cars on the road or planes in the sky; when someone like her couldn't vote for two reasons — because she was a woman and because of the color of her skin.

在她出生的那个时代,黑奴制刚刚废除。那时路上没有汽车,天上没有飞机。当时像她这样的人由于两个原因不能投票--一第一因为她是女性,第二个原因是她的肤色。

And tonight, I think about all that she's seen throughout her century in America — the heartache and the hope; the struggle and the progress; the times we were told that we can't and the people who pressed on with

that American creed: Yes, we can.

今天晚上,我想到了安妮在美国过去一百年间的种种经历:心痛和希望,挣扎和进步,那些我们被告知我们办不到的年代,以及我们现在这个年代。现在,我们坚信美国式信念──是的,我们能!

At a time when women's voices were silenced and their hopes dismissed, she lived to see them stand up and speak out and reach for the ballot. Yes, we can.

在那个年代,妇女的声音被压制,她们的希望被剥夺。但安妮活到了今天,看到妇女们站起来了,可以大声发表意见了,有选举权了。是的,我们能。 When there was despair in the Dust Bowl and depression acrothe land, she saw a nation conquer fear itself with a New Deal, new jobs and a new sense of common purpose. Yes, we can.

安妮经历了上世纪三十年代的大萧条。农田荒芜,绝望笼罩美国大地。她看到了美国以新政、新的就业机会以及崭新的共同追求战胜了恐慌。是的,我们能。 When the bombs fell on our harbor and tyranny threatened the world, she was there to witnea generation rise to greatneand a democracy was saved. Yes, we can.

二战时期,炸弹袭击我们的海港,全世界受到独裁专制威胁,安妮见证了一代美国人的英雄本色,他们捍卫了民主。是的,我们能。

She was there for the buses in Montgomery, the hoses in Birmingham, a bridge in Selma and a preacher from Atlanta who told a people that "We Shall Overcome." Yes, we can.

安妮经历了蒙哥马利公交车事件、伯明翰黑人暴动事件、塞尔马血醒周末事件。来自亚特兰大的一位牧师告诉人们:我们终将胜利。是的,我们能。

A man touched down on the moon, a wall came down in Berlin, a world was connected by our own science and imagination. And this year, in this election, she touched her finger to a screen and cast her vote, because after 106 years in America, through the best of times and the darkest of hours, she knows how America can change. Yes, we can.

人类登上了月球、柏林墙倒下了,科学和想像把世界连成了一块。今年,在这次选举中,安妮的手指轻触电子屏幕,投下自己的一票。她在美国生活了106年,其间有最美好的时光,也有最黑暗的时刻,她知道美国能够变革。是的,我们能。

America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves: If our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progrewill we have made?

美利坚,我们已经一路走来,我们已经看到了那么多变化,但我们仍有很多事情要做。今夜,让我们问自己这样一个问题:假如我们的孩子能够活到下一个世纪,假如我的女儿们有幸与安妮一样长寿,她们将会看到怎样的改变?我们又取得了怎样的进步?

This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. This is our time — to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity

for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timelecreed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.

现在,我们获得了回答这个问题的机会。这是我们的时刻,我们的时代。让我们的人民重新就业,为我们的孩子打开机会的大门;恢复繁荣,促进和平;让美国梦重放光芒,再证这一根本性真理,那就是:团结一致,众志成城;一息尚存,希望就在;倘若有人嘲讽和怀疑,说我们不能,我们就以这一永恒信条回应,因为它凝聚了整个民族的精神——是的,我们能!

Thank you, God bleyou, and may God blethe United States of America.

谢谢大家!愿上帝保佑你们,保佑美利坚合众国。

奥巴马获胜演讲稿2017-12-21 14:39:41 | #2楼回目录

My fellow citizens:

我的同胞们:

I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

今天我站在这里,看到眼前面临的重大任务,深感卑微。我感谢你们对我的信任,也知道先辈们为了这个国家所作的牺牲。我要感谢布什总统为国家做出的贡献,以及感谢他在两届政府过渡期间给与的慷慨协作。

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.

迄今为止,已经有44个美国总统宣誓就职。总统的宣誓有时面对的是国家的和平繁荣,但通常面临的是乌云密布的紧张形势。在紧张的形势中,支持美国前进的不仅仅是领导人的能力和远见,也在于美国人民对国家先驱者理想的信仰,以及对美国立国文件的忠诚。So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.

前辈们如此,我们这一代美国人也要如此。

That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our healthcare is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.

现在我们都深知,我们身处危机之中。我们的国家在战斗,对手是影响深远的暴力和憎恨;国家的经济也受到严重的削弱,原因虽有一些人的贪婪和不负责任,但更为重要的是我们作为一个整体在一些重大问题上决策失误,同时也未能做好应对新时代的准备。我们的人民正在失去家园,失去工作,很多企业倒闭。社会的医疗过于昂贵、学校教育让许多人失望,而且每天都会有新的证据显示,我们利用能源的方式助长了我们的敌对势力,同时也威胁着我们的星球。

These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Lemeasurable but no leprofound is a sapping of confidence acroour land - a nagging fear that America's decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights.

统计数据的指标传达着危机的消息。危机难以测量,但更难以测量的是其对美国人国家自信的侵蚀--现在一种认为美国衰落不可避免,我们的下一代必须低调的言论正在吞噬着人们的自信。

Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America - they will be met.

今天我要说,我们的确面临着很多严峻的挑战,而且在短期内不大可能轻易解决。但是我们要相信,我们一定会度过难关。On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

今天,我们在这里齐聚一堂,因为我们战胜恐惧选择了希望,摒弃了冲突和矛盾而选择了团结。

On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.

今天,我们宣布要为无谓的摩擦、不实的承诺和指责画上句号,我们要打破牵制美国政治发展的若干陈旧教条。

We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.

美国仍是一个年轻的国家,借用《圣经》的话说,放弃幼稚的时代已经到来了。重拾坚韧精神的时代已经到来,我们要为历史作出更好的选择,我们要秉承历史赋予的宝贵权利,秉承那种代代相传的高贵理念:上帝赋予我们每个人以平等和自由,以及每个人尽全力去追求幸福的机会。

In reaffirming the greatneof our nation, we understand that greatneis never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted - for those who prefer leisure over work, or

seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things - some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labour, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.在重申我们国家伟大之处的同时,我们深知伟大从来不是上天赐予的,伟大需要努力赢得。(我们的民族一路走来),这旅途之中从未有过捷径或者妥协,这旅途也不适合胆怯之人、或者爱安逸胜过爱工作之人、或者单单追求名利之人。这条路是勇于承担风险者之路,是实干家、创造者之路。这其中有一些人名留青史,但是更多的人却在默默无闻地工作着。正是这些人带领我们走过了漫长崎岖的旅行,带领我们走向富强和自由。

For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled acrooceans in search of a new life.

For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the west; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.

For us, they fought and died, in places like Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sahn.

为了我们,先辈们带着微薄的细软,横渡大洋,寻找新生活;为了我们,先辈们忍辱负重,用血汗浇铸工厂;为了我们,先辈们在荒芜的西部大地辛勤耕作,定居他乡;为了我们,先辈们奔赴(独立战争中的)康科德城和葛底斯堡、(二战中的)诺曼底、(越战中的)Khe Sahn,他们征战、死去。

Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.一次又一次,我们的先辈们战斗着、牺牲着、操劳着,只为了我们可以生活得更好。在他们看来,美国的强盛与伟大超越了个人雄心,也超越了个人的出身、贫富和派别差异。

This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no leproductive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no leinventive, our goods and services no leneeded than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions - that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.

今天我们继续先辈们的旅途。美国依然是地球上最富裕、最强大的国家。同危机初露端倪之时相比,美国人民的生产力依然旺盛;与上周、上个月或者去年相比,我们的头脑依然富于创造力,我们的商品和服务依然很有市场,我们的实力不曾削弱。但是,可以肯定的是,轻歌曼舞的时代、保护狭隘利益的时代以及对艰难决定犹豫不决的时代已经过去了。从今天开始,我们必须跌倒后爬起来,拍拍身上的泥土,重新开始工作,重塑美国。

For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act - not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology's wonders to raise healthcare's quality and lower its cost. We will harnethe sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do.

我目之所及,都有工作有待完成。国家的经济情况要求我们采取大胆且快速的行动,我们的确是要行动,不仅是要创造就业,更要为(下一轮经济)增长打下新的基矗我们将造桥铺路,为企业铺设电网和数字线路,将我们联系在一起。我们将回归科学,运用科技的奇迹提高医疗质量,降低医疗费用。我们将利用风能、太阳能和土壤驱动车辆,为工厂提供能源。我们将改革中小学以及大专院校,以适应新时代的要求。这一切,我们都能做到,而且我们都将会做到。

Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions - who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short. For they have forgotten what this country has already done; what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage.

现在,有一些人开始质疑我们的野心是不是太大了,他们认为我们的体制承载不了太多的宏伟计划。他们是健忘了。他们已经忘了这个国家已经取得的成就;他们已经忘了当创造力与共同目标以及必要的勇气结合起来时,自由的美国人民所能发挥的能量。

What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them - that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works - whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account - to spend wisely, reform bad habits and do our businein the light of day - because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.

这些怀疑论者的错误在于,他们没有意识到政治现实已经发生了变化,长期以来耗掉我们太多精力的陈腐政治论争已经不再适用。今天,我们的问题不在于政府的大小,而在于政府能否起作用,政府能否帮助家庭找到薪水合适的工作、给他们可以负担得起的医疗保障并让他们体面地退休。哪个方案能给与肯定的答案,我们就推进哪个方案。哪个方案的答案是否定的,我们就选择终止。而掌管纳税人税金的人应当承担起责任,合理支出,摒弃陋习,磊落做事,这样才能在政府和人民之间重建至关重要的相互信任。

Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched, but this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control - and that a nation cannot prosper long when it favours only the prosperous. The succeof our economy has always depended not just on the size of our grodomestic product, but on the reach f; on our ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart - not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.

我们面临的问题也不是市场好坏的问题。市场创造财富、拓展自由的能力无可匹敌,但是这场危机提醒我们,如果没有监管,市场很可能就会失去控制,而且偏袒富人国家的繁荣无法持久。国家经济的成败不仅仅取决于国内生产总值的大小,而且取决于繁荣的覆盖面,取决于我们是否有能力让所有有意愿的人都有机会走向富裕。我们这样做不是慈善,而是因为这是确保实现共同利益的途径。As for our common defence, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake. And so to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and that we are ready to lead once more.

就共同防御而言,我们认为国家安全与国家理想的只能选其一的排他选择是错的。面对我们几乎无法想像的危险,我们的先辈们起草了确保法治和个人权利的宪章。一代代人民的鲜血夯实了这一宪章。宪章中的理想依然照亮着世界,我们不能以经验之谈放弃这些理想。因此我想对正在观看这一仪式的其他国家的人民和政府说,不论他们现在各国伟大的首府还是在如同我父亲出生地一般的小村落,我想让他们知道:对于每个追求和平和自尊的国家和个人而言,美国都是朋友,我们愿意再次领导大家踏上追寻之旅。

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justneof our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

回想先辈们在抵抗法西斯主义之时,他们不仅依靠手中的导弹或坦克,他们还依靠稳固的联盟和坚定的信仰。他们深知单凭自己的力量我们无法保护自己,他们也深知我们强大并不足以使我们有权利为所欲为。他们明白,正是因为使用谨慎,我们的实力才不断增强;正是因为我们的事业是公正的、我们为世界树立了榜样,因为我们的谦卑和节制,我们才安全。

We are the keepers of this legacy. Guided by these principles once more, we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort - even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people, and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we will work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a warming planet. We will not apologise for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defence, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.

我们继承了这些遗产。在这些原则的再次领导下,我们有能力应对新的威胁,我们需要付出更多的努力、进行国家间更广泛的合作以及增进国家间的理解。首先,我们将以负责任的态度,将伊拉克交还给伊拉克人民,同时巩固阿富汗来之不易的和平。对于老朋友和老对手,我们将继续努力,不遗余力,削弱核威胁,遏制全球变暖的幽灵。我们不会为我们的生活方式感到报歉,我们会不动摇地扞卫我们的生活方式。对于那些企图通过恐怖主义或屠杀无辜平民达成目标的人,我们要对他们说:我们的信仰更加坚定,不可动摇,你们不可能拖垮我们,我们定将战胜你们。

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus - and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.

因为我们知道,我们的多元化遗产是一个优势,而非劣势。我们国家里有基督徒也有穆斯林,有犹太教徒也有印度教徒,同时也有非

宗教信徒。我们民族的成长受到许多语言和文化的影响,我们吸取了这个星球上任何一个角落的有益成分。正是因为我们民族曾亲尝过内战和种族隔离的苦酒,并且在经历了这些黑色的篇章之后变得更加强大更加团结,因此我们不由自主,只能相信一切仇恨终有一天都会成为过去,种族的划分不久就会消失,而且随着世界变得越来越小,我们相信终有一天人类共有的人性品德将会自动显现。在迎接新的和平时代到来的过程中,美国需要发挥自己的作用。

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the west - know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.

对于穆斯林世界,我们将基于共同的利益和信仰,寻找更好的合作之路。对于那些在世界各个地方挑起冲突或一味批评西方不良影响的领导者:你的人民评判你的依据是你建立了什么,而不是破坏了什么。对于那些依靠腐败和欺骗并压制异议而追求权利的人们:你们站在了人类历史的对立面。如果你们能张开紧握的拳头,我们也将伸出友谊之手。

To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world's resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.

对于那些贫穷的人们,我们保证和你们一起建设繁茂的农场和干净的水源,滋养那些饥寒交迫的身体和心灵。对于那些与我们一样相对富裕的国家,我们不能再对外界的苦难漠不关心,更不能继续大肆索取世界的资源。世界必须改变,我们都必须改变。

As we consider the road that unfolds before us, we remember with humble gratitude those brave Americans who, at this very hour, patrol far-off deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us today, just as the fallen heroes who lie in Arlington whisper through the ages. We honour them not only because they are guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service; a willingneto find meaning in something greater than themselves. And yet, at this moment - a moment that will define a generation - it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all.

当我们审视前方的道路时,我们会感激那些跨越千山万水来到这里的人们。今天,他们有话对我们说,也是安息在阿林顿国家公墓里的先烈们时刻提醒我们的。我们尊敬他们不仅因为是他们捍卫了我们的自由,更因为他们正是奉献精神的化身;他们致力于寻找远高于自身的生命真谛。而此时,在这个特殊的时代,我们更需让这种精神长存。

For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies. It is the kindneto take in a stranger when the levees break, the selflessneof workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose their job which sees us through our darkest hours. It is the firefighter's courage to storm a stairway filled with smoke, but also a parent's willingneto nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.

因为无论美国政府能做多少,必须做多少,美国国家的立国之本最终还是美国人的决心和信念。于防洪堤坝决堤之时收留陌生受难者的善意,于在经济不景气的时候宁愿减少自己工时也不肯看着朋友失业的无私,正是他们支撑我们走过黑暗的时刻。消防队员冲入满是浓烟的楼梯抢救生命的勇气,父母养育孩子的坚持,正是这些决定了我们的命运。

Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our succedepends - hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progrethroughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility - a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.

我们面临的挑战也许是新的,我们应对挑战的措施也许也是新的,但那些长期以来指导我们成功的价值观--勤奋、诚实、勇气、公平竞争、包容以及对世界保持好奇心,还有对国家的忠诚和爱国主义--却是历久弥新,这些价值观是可靠的。他们是创造美国历史的无声力量。我们现在需要的就是回归这些古老的价值观。我们需要一个新的负责任的时代,一个觉醒的时代,每个国人都应意识到即我们对自己、对国家和世界负有责任,我们不应该不情愿地接受这些责任,而应该快乐地承担起这些责任。我们应该坚定这一认识,即没有什么比全身心投入一项艰巨的工作更能锻炼我们的性格,更能获得精神上的满足。

This is the price and the promise of citizenship.

这是公民应尽的义务,应做出的承诺。

This is the source of our confidence - the knowledge that God calls on us to shape an uncertain destiny.

我们自信源于对上帝的信仰,上帝号召我们要掌握自己的命运。

This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed - why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration acrothis magnificent mall, and why a man whose father lethan sixty years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath.

这就是我们自由和信仰的意义,这也是为何不同种族、不同信仰、不同性别和年龄的人可以同聚一堂在此欢庆的原因,也是我今天能站在这里庄严宣誓的原因,而在50多年前我的父亲甚至都不能成为地方餐馆的服务生。

So let us mark this day with remembrance, of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America's birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At a moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words be read to the people:

所以,让我们铭记自己的身份,镌刻自己的足迹。在美国诞生的时代,那最寒冷的岁月里,一群勇敢的爱国人士围着篝火在冰封的河边取暖。首都被占领,敌人在挺进,冬天的雪被鲜血染成了红色。在美国大革命最受质疑的时刻,我们的国父们这样说:

"Let it be told to the future world...that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive...that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet [it]."

“我们要让未来的世界知道……在深冬的严寒里,唯有希望和勇气才能让我们存活……面对共同的危险时,我们的城市和国家要勇敢地上前去面对。”

America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timelewords. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

今天的美国也在严峻的寒冬中面对共同的挑战,让我们记住国父们不朽的语言。带着希望和勇气,让我们再一次勇敢地面对寒流,迎接可能会发生的风暴。我们要让我们的子孙后代记住,在面临挑战的时候,我们没有屈服,我们没有逃避也没有犹豫,我们脚踏实地、心怀信仰,秉承了宝贵的自由权利并将其安全地交到了下一代的手中。

2016奥巴马获胜演讲稿2017-12-21 14:39:07 | #3楼回目录

OBAMA: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: It moves forward because of you. It moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war anddepression, the spirit that has lifted this country from the depthsof despair to the great heights of hope, the belief that while eachof us will pursue our own individual dreams, we are an Americanfamily and we rise or fall together as one nation and as onepeople.

(APPLAUSE)

Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded usthat while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long,we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and wek now in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: I want to thank every American who participated in thiselection... (APPLAUSE)

... whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time. (APPLAUSE)

By the way, we have to fix that.

(APPLAUSE)

Whether you pounded the pavement or picked up the phone...

(APPLAUSE)

... whether you held an Obama sign or a Romney sign, you made your voice heard and you made a difference.

I just spoke with Governor Romney and I congratulated him and Paul Ryan on a hard-fought campaign.

(APPLAUSE)

We may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future. From George to Lenore to their son Mitt, the Romney family has chosen to give back to America through public service and that is the legacy that we honor and applaud tonight.

(APPLAUSE)

In the weeks ahead, I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward.

(APPLAUSE)

I want to thank my friend and partner of the last four years ,America's happy warrior, the best vice president anybody could ever hope for, Joe Biden.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: And I wouldn't be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago.

(APPLAUSE)

Let me say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more .I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as our nation's first lady.

(APPLAUSE)

Sasha and Malia, before our very eyes you're growing up to become two strong, smart beautiful young women, just like your mom.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: And I'm so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now one dog's probably enough.

(LAUGHTER)

To the best campaign team and volunteers in the history of politics... (APPLAUSE)

The best. The best ever. Some of you were new this time around ,and some of you have been at my side since the very beginning.

(APPLAUSE)

But all of you are family. No matter what you do or where you go from here, you will carry the memory of the history we made together and you will have the life-long appreciation of a grateful president. Thank you for believing all the way, through every hill,through every valley.

(APPLAUSE)

You lifted me up the whole way and I will always be grateful for everything that you've done and all the incredible work that you put in.

(APPLAUSE)

I know that political campaigns can sometimes seem small, even silly. And that provides plenty of fodder for the cynics that tell us that politics is nothing more than a contest of egos or the domain of special interests. But if you ever get the chance to talk to folks who turned out at our rallies and crowded along a rope line in a high school gym, or saw folks working late in a campaign office in some tiny county far away from home, you'll discover something else.

OBAMA: You'll hear the determination in the voice of a young field organizer who's working his way through college and wants tomake sure every child has that same opportunity.

(APPLAUSE)

You'll hear the pride in the voice of a volunteer who's going door to door because her brother was finally hired when the local auto plant added another shift. (APPLAUSE)

You'll hear the deep patriotism in the voice of a military spouse whose working the phones late at night to make sure that no one who fights for this country ever has to fight for a job or aroof over their head when they come home.

(APPLAUSE)

That's why we do this. That's what politics can be. That's why elections matter. It's not small, it's big. It's important .Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. We have our own opinions. Each of us has deeply

heldbeliefs. And when we go through tough times, when we make bigdecisions as a country, it necessarily stirs passions, stirs upcontroversy.

That won't change after tonight, and it shouldn't. Thesearguments we have are a mark of our liberty. We can never forgetthat as we speak people in distant nations are risking their livesright now just for a chance to argue about the issues that matter,the chance to cast their ballots like we did today.

(APPLAUSE)

But despite all our differences, most of us share certain hopesfor America's future. We want our kids to grow up in a countrywhere they have acceto the best schools and the bestteachers.

(APPLAUSE)

A country that lives up to its legacy as the global leader intechnology and discovery and innovation, with all the good jobs andnew businesses that follow.

OBAMA: We want our children to live in an America that isn'tburdened by debt, that isn't weakened by inequality, that isn'tthreatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.

(APPLAUSE)

We want to paon a country that's safe and respected andadmired around the world, a nation that is defended by thestrongest military on earth and the best troops this - this worldhas ever known.

(APPLAUSE)

But also a country that moves with confidence beyond this timeof war, to shape a peace that is built on the promise of freedomand dignity for every human being. We believe in a generousAmerica, in a compassionate America, in a tolerant America, open tothe dreams of an immigrant's daughter who studies in our schoolsand pledges to our flag.

(APPLAUSE)

To the young boy on the south side of Chicago who sees a lifebeyond the nearest street corner.

(APPLAUSE)

To the furniture worker's child in North Carolina who wants tobecome a doctor or a scientist, an engineer or an entrepreneur, adiplomat or even a president - that's the future we hope for.That's the vision we share. That's where we need to go -forward.

(APPLAUSE)

That's where we need to go.

Now, we will disagree, sometimes fiercely, about how to getthere. As it has for more than two centuries, progrewill come infits and starts. It's not always a straight line. It's not always asmooth path.

By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreamswon't end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitutefor the painstaking work of building consensus and making thedifficult compromises needed to move this country forward. But thatcommon bond is where we must begin. Our economy is recovering. Adecade of war is ending. A long campaign is now over.

(APPLAUSE)

And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, Ihave learned from you, and you've made me a better president. Andwith your stories and your struggles, I return to the White Housemore determined and more inspired than ever about the work there isto do and the future that lies ahead.

(APPLAUSE)

Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual.

(APPLAUSE)

You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. And in thecoming weeks and months, I am looking forward to reaching out andworking with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we canonly solve together. Reducing our deficit. Reforming our tax code.Fixing our immigration system. Freeing ourselves from foreign oil.We've got more work to do.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: But that doesn't mean your work is done. The role ofcitizens in our Democracy does not end with your vote. America'snever been about what can be done for us. It's about what can bedone by us together through the hard and frustrating, but necessarywork of self-government. That's the principle we were foundedon. (APPLAUSE)

This country has more wealth than any nation, but that's notwhat makes us rich. We have the most powerful military in history,but that's not what makes us strong. Our university, our cultureare all the envy of the world, but that's not what keeps the worldcoming to our shores.

What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold togetherthe most diverse nation on earth.

OBAMA: The belief that our destiny is shared; that this countryonly works when we accept certain obligations to one another and tofuture generations. The freedom which so many Americans have foughtfor and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. Andamong those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That'swhat makes America great.

(APPLAUSE)

I am hopeful tonight because I've seen the spirit at work inAmerica. I've seen it in the family businewhose owners wouldrather cut their own pay than lay off their neighbors, and in theworkers who would rather cut back their hours than see a friendlose a job.

I've seen it in the soldiers who reenlist after losing a limband in those SEALs who charged up the stairs into darkneanddanger because they knew there was a buddy behind them watchingtheir back.

(APPLAUSE)

I've seen it on the shores of New Jersey and New York, whereleaders from every party and level of government have swept asidetheir differences to help a community rebuild from the wreckage ofa terrible storm.

(APPLAUSE)

And I saw just the other day, in Mentor, Ohio, where a fathertold the story of his 8-year-old daughter, whose long battle withleukemia nearly cost their family everything had it not been forhealth care reform passing just a few months before the insurancecompany was about to stop paying for her care.

(APPLAUSE)

I had an opportunity to not just talk to the father, but meetthis incredible daughter of his. And when he spoke to the crowdlistening to that father's story, every parent in that room hadtears in their eyes, because we knew that little girl could be ourown. And I know that every American wants her future to be just asbright. That's who we are. That's the country I'm so proud to leadas your president.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: And tonight, despite all the hardship we've been through,despite all the frustrations of Washington, I've never been morehopeful about our future. (APPLAUSE)

I have never been more hopeful about America. And I ask you tosustain that hope. I'm not talking about blind optimism, the kindof hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or theroadblocks that stand in our path. I'm not talking about thewishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines orshirk from a fight. I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing insideus that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, thatsomething better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keepreaching, to keep working, to keep fighting. (APPLAUSE)

America, I believe we can build on the progrewe've made andcontinue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new securityfor the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of ourfounders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn'tmatter who you are or where you come from or what you look like orwhere you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white orHispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich orpoor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here inAmerica if you're willing to try.

(APPLAUSE)

I believe we can seize this future together because we are notas divided as our politics suggests. We're not as cynical as thepundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individualambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states andblue states. We are and forever will be the United States ofAmerica. (APPLAUSE)

And together with your help and God's grace we will continue ourjourney forward and remind the world just why it is that we live inthe greatest nation on Earth. Thank you, America. God bleyou. God blethese UnitedStates. (APPLAUSE)
