During this presidential election year, check out this great site from UC Santa Barbara called: The American Presidency Project
The American Presidency Project is the only online resource that has consolidated, coded, and organized into a single searchable database:
- The Messages and Papers of the Presidents: Washington – Taft (1789-1913)
- The Public Papers of the Presidents: Hoover to G.W. Bush (1929-2007) & Obama (2011-Book I)
- The Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents: Carter – G.W. Bush (1977-2009)
- The Daily Compilation of Presidential Documents: Obama (2009-2015)
- The archives also contain thousands of other documents such as party platforms, candidates’ remarks, Statements of Administration Policy, documents released by the Office of the Press Secretary, and election debates.
Of particular interest may be the page of 2016 Presidential Election Documents. Here you’ll find campaign speeches, statements, and press releases from all of the current and past candidates.
Also available are transcripts of all of the Presidential Debates • 1960 – 2016.
