Hillary Clinton英语背诵1

Hillary Clinton: New kid on the block

Yale Student: We've got one of our own Yale Senators right here with us on stage.

Only the warmest of welcomes from Yale's graduating class, its 300th. Her address combined humor...

Hillary Clinton: In all the years since I have been at Yale, the most important thing that I have to say today is that hair matters.

...politics and reminiscences from her years as a Yale University law student. But her main theme: a plea for students not to turn away from the political process.

Hillary Clinton: Bring your values and experiences and insights into politics. Dare to help make, not just a difference in politics, but create a different politics.

Hillary Clinton: President Bush's extremely large tax plan would spend trillions we don't have and may never have. If we reverse the engines of economic growth by adopting President Bush's tax proposal, I fear that we will reverse the progress we've made by increasing interest rates now and by saddling our children with big debts in the future. I know and respect that President Bush supports faith-based programs but his tax plan should not be one of them. Going forward with a huge tax proposal now is like getting a letter from Ed McMan and going out to buy a yacht. A surplus projection is not a promise. And if the past is any guide, it's not even a likely outcome. Hillary Clinton (At National Press Club): This is a very creative, imaginative group. No, I have said that I am not running. And I am having a great time being pres...of being a first-term, being a first-term Senator. You are going to get me into so much trouble.

希拉里·克林顿:初来乍到

耶鲁学生:我们耶鲁大学自己的参议员就在台上。

希拉里得到耶鲁大学第三百届毕业生最热烈的欢迎。她的讲话不乏幽默感…… 希拉里·克林顿∶我离开耶鲁大学这么多年了,今天我得说:最重要的事情是发型。

……希拉里谈到了政治,还有她对在耶鲁大学攻读法律时的往事回顾。但她的主要话题

是呼吁学生不要逃避政治。

希拉里·克林顿:把你自己的价值观、经历和自己的独特观点带到政治中来。不仅要大胆地在政治中起到自己的作用,而且要能勇敢地创造不同的政治。

希拉里·克林顿∶布什总统异常庞大的税收计划,会花掉数万亿我们没有、而且也许永远不会有的钱。如果我们像布什总统的减税计划中提议的那样,把经济增长的火车头调过头来,开倒车的话,我恐怕会造成利率上升,逆转经济前进的方向,并给我们的子孙后代加上沉重的负债。我知道布什总统支持以宗教信仰为基准的计划,我也尊重他的这种做法,但他的减税计划不应包括在内。如果我们现在实施这个庞大的减税计划,就好像是我们一接到埃德·麦克曼恩的信,就去买一艘游艇一样。对预算盈余的预测并不是一个承诺。如果我们能够以史为鉴的话,这是不可能发生的。

希拉里·克林顿(在全国新闻俱乐部):你们是一群极富创造性和想象力的人。不会,我说过我不打算竞选。我很高兴作为……作为第一届,作为第一届参议员。你们将会给我带来很多麻烦。

Order of the Day

(Dwight D. Eisenhower)

Jun. 6, 1944

Soldiers, sailors, and airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force, you are about to embark upon the great crusade towards which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you, the hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed people of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well-trained, well-equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely. But this is the year 1944, much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940, 41. The united nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats in open battle, men to men. Our air offenses have seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and ammunitions of wan and placed at our disposal, great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory. Good luck and let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

1944.6.6

各位联合远征军的海陆空战士们:

你们马上就要踏上征程去进行一场伟大的圣战,我们已经为此精心准备了数月。全世界的目光都注视着你们,各地热爱和平的人们的期望与祈祷与你们同行。

你们将与其他战线上的勇敢盟军兄弟一起并肩战斗,摧毁德国的战争机器,推翻压在欧洲人民身上的纳粹暴政,保卫我们在一个自由世界的安全。你们的任务非常艰巨,你们的敌人训练有素,装备精良,久经沙场,他们肯定会负隅顽抗。但是,现在是1944年,与纳粹1940、41年连连取胜时的情形已大不相同。联合国在正面战场予以德军迎头痛击,空军削弱了德军的空中力量和他们发动地面进攻的能力。我们的后方弹药充足、武器精良、部署得当、后备力量充裕。潮流已经逆转,全世界自由的人们正在一起向胜利迈进。我对你们的勇敢、责任心和作战能力充满了信心,我们迎接的只会是彻底的胜利。

祝你们好运,并让我们祈求万能的上帝祝福这伟大而崇高的事业获得成功。
