Ricky Martin
I think of myself as living so much outside borders or old categories that I choose as my leaders U2, the Dalai Lama, Vaclav Havel, Sigur Ros, Desmond Tutu, Barack Obama, and the girl next door. By definition, in short, my leaders are the ones who think in terms larger, and more intimate, than any country.
Pico Iyer

Jimmy Carter
I think that it’s important that the American people know that Barack Obama didn’t have a mild association with Bill Ayers, he had a very strong association with Bill Ayers. Bill Ayers is not someone that the average American wants to see their president have an association with.
Michele Bachmann
During his public life, Barack Obama has often referred to his biracial background and itinerant childhood and has said, ‘In no other country on Earth is my story even possible.’ True.

Barack Obama destroyed the middle class. Whatever you want to say about his rhetoric, the rich got richer, but the poor got poorer, and the middle class got wiped out. That’s really what Trump appealed to and inspired in the forgotten man.
Steve Scalise
I’m a big fan of Barack Obama. I think he carries a heavier burden and is held to a greater and higher standard than other candidates : I think there’s a large, large portion of this country that feels disenfranchised and marginalized by the political process.
Chris Carter
We can support Barack Obama because he’s committed to putting America back to work with good jobs – and he proved it by saving the auto industry.
Richard Trumka
As much as I’d love to believe that we are ‘post-racial’ – an idea that really gained traction after the election of Barack Obama in 2008 – I can never escape the fact that in the world I am perceived as a ‘black man’ and, in certain parts of the world, as a ‘black gay man.’
Justin Simien

Tim Pawlenty

Rush Limbaugh
Look what’s happened to Barack Obama over the last two years or George Bush for eight. It’s a blood sport. But at some point I may feel the need to run for office again.
Joe Scarborough
We are not going to round up and deport 12 million people, but we’re not going to hand out citizenship cards, either. There will be a process. We will see what the American people are willing to support. But it will not be unconstitutional executive orders like the ones Barack Obama has forced on us.
Marco Rubio
Barack Obama took office in the middle of a massive financial crisis. He was handed a bunch of messes all around the world and at home.
Jon Lovett
For some Republicans, 2016 is 1992: Hating Hillary Clinton is chic again. Only more so, since the former secretary of state is also the partner of and potential successor to the last two Democratic presidents – Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Donna Brazile
I am a Barack Obama fan from head-to-toe – always have been. He’s not perfect; nobody is going to be that way.

Eisenhower was less deferential to the military than he

Eisenhower was less deferential to the military than he seemed likely to be, Kennedy was not at all beholden to the pope, George W. Bush was smarter than portrayed and Barack Obama has not led a charge from the left – least of all on behalf of the civil liberties that have eroded since September 11, 2001.
David K. Shipler
A lot of the Republicans wanted exactly what Barack Obama wanted, exactly what Nancy Pelosi wanted, exactly what Harry Reid wanted, which is to raise the debt ceiling, but they wanted to be able to tell what they view as their foolish, gullible constituents back home they didn’t do it.
Ted Cruz
It’s been 80 years since the Senate has confirmed a Supreme Court nominee who was nominated during an election. And particularly when the court hangs in the balance, it makes no sense whatsoever to give Barack Obama the power to jam through a judge in the final election year.
Ted Cruz

I knew Barack Obama, absolutely. And I knew him probably as well as thousands of other Chicagoans.
Bill Ayers
Few expected very much of Franklin Roosevelt on Inauguration Day in 1933. Like Barack Obama seventy-six years later, he was succeeding a failed Republican president, and Americans had voted for change. What that change might be Roosevelt never clearly said, probably because he himself didn’t know.
Russell Baker
When Barack Obama won in 2008, in 2009 I voted for his team because I think that – that the American people wanted him to have his team. But don’t think I wasn’t worried about it. Really worried.
John McCain
President Barack Obama was amazing. You know how you imagine it would be to meet a celebrity, and that person may actually have a halo around them or something? Well, he did! He was tall, and he had a halo!
Liza Koshy
The first thing I ever heard about Barack Obama was that he had a white mother and a black father. Interestingly, the person who informed me of this spoke only matter-of-factly, with no hint of the gossip’s wicked delight.
Shelby Steele
When Barack Obama arrived in Washington, many in the media welcomed him with optimism as a historic figure focused on progressive change. But their overwhelmingly favorable treatment of him ultimately turned Americans who disagreed with Obama’s policies away from traditional media sources they came to distrust.
Ben Domenech
Interpreting anyone’s marriage – a neighbor’s, let alone the president’s – is extremely difficult. And yet, examining the first couple’s relationship – their negotiations of public and private life, of conflicts and compromises – offers hints about Barack Obama the president, not just Barack Obama the husband.
Jodi Kantor
Dig just a little bit deeper. Work just a little bit harder. And don’t get weary! Remember this is personal! Let’s finish what we started, and re-elect President Barack Obama!
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Why was Barack Obama attractive to people in 2008? If you think about Barack Obama, there’s all this anxiety about society, just kind of wracked by centripetal forces – the idea that the center’s not holding, no one can talk to each other, the idea of a political system that’s broken.
