This is an authoritative compilation of almost 100 presidential campaign speeches given by President Barack Obama from June through October 2012, including the full text of Obama's remarks accepting the presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 6, 2012, and a transcript of the first 2012 Presidential Debate in Denver, Colorado on October 3, 2012 moderated by Jim Lehrer. Each speech is an official document with complete information on location, names of rally participants, and subjects covered.

At a fundraiser, Obama stated: "One last thought I want to leave you with is a sense of optimism about how solvable our problems are. It's become fashionable to talk about how America can't recover from these kinds of challenges. You know what, that's what they've said throughout our history. They've always underestimated the resilience and the strength of the American people. And we've been through tougher times before. And I, as you might imagine, spend a lot of time traveling all around the world. There's not a country that wouldn't trade places with us. If you look at, as tough as things have been, the pace at which we've grown, the accessibility of solutions to our fiscal problems relative to what's happening in Europe, for example, what's required is not out of reach. It will require some tough choices. Most of all, it requires those on Capitol Hill to work across party lines to achieve some basic solutions. But we are poised to make sure that the 21st century is the American century, just like the 20th century was. It's going to require some work though, and this election is going to help determine it."
