But let me offer a few brief reflections based on my own experiences and the experiences of our country over the last two centuries...  So, class of 2010, what we should be asking is not whether we need "big government" or a "small government," but how we can create a smarter and better government.  (Applause.)"  President Obama, May 2010.
