We have chased away the clouds, the sky is all 'rose.'
I could have made a fortune in cheeseburgers, but I finally chose politics.
I think that France has not made it clear enough recently to our German friends how important it is to introduce euro bonds as a tool against speculation. And how the necessary budget discipline needs to be accompanied by growth.
I am attached to the French language. I will defend the ubiquitous use of French.
We are a big country, with lots of advantages and history. We are proud to be French. We have to call on patriotism at this time... to ask for an effort in the battle against debt.
My adversary is the world of finance.
That is now my mission: to provide a European vision of growth, employment, prosperity - in one word, our future.
An education program is, by definition, a societal program. Work should be done at school, rather than at home.
Is France a northern European export powerhouse, or a Mediterranean indebted and dependent economy? Yes to both.
We need the help of other member countries and leaders who, like us, want to see a change in Europe's direction. That's also my logic when I tell voters that electing me president will not only shape France's future, but also initiate change across all of Europe.
I don't like indecent, unearned wealth. But it is legitimate for an entrepreneur who has created something to make a good living.
I perfectly understood President Obama's attitude throughout the French presidential campaign. He had no reason to distance himself from Nicolas Sarkozy. It's the basic solidarity that leaders who worked together owe to each other.
Nothing was given to me, nothing was entrusted to me, nothing was assigned to me. Everything I have, I took by right.
Europe needs an engine, and the Franco-German motor has provided that when the two nations have converged on important topics during critical periods. But that partnership shouldn't be a directorate for other EU members.
Before you, I engage myself to serve my country with the devotion and the exemplary that this post demands. I understand responsibilities of the job and, as such, I give a republican salute to Nicolas Sarkozy who has led France for 5 years and who deserves all of our respect.
