>Fighting Crime

"I made a commitment, a promise to put 100,000 more police on our streets, becausethere is simply no better crime fighting tool to be found. And I intend to keep that promise. Anyone on Capitol Hill who wants to play partisan politics with police officers for America should listen carefully: I will veto any effort to repeal or undermine the 100,000 police commitment, period. "
