“I’m always best as a counterpuncher. You know, if somebody comes at me, I will knock them out. If not then I’ll try to understand their point of view. That actually serves me well. I give people the benefit of the doubt. I try to understand their point of view. If I perceive that they try to take advantage of that, then I will crush them.”
— Barack Obama in 2007.
