He believes and he wants all the people to believe that America will finally take the role of leading the world into a bright future, with the help of its incomparable democratic tradition, its progresses in science and technology and military affairs and its people’s hard efforts. In order to perfectly address his ideas, he makes use of many rhetorical devices. Being faced with the terrible Financial Crisis, the loss of Public confidence, Obama makes his address a horn to inspire Public confidence, a warranty to get democracy power, and a banner to recall America dream. He tries to make his people believe that America and American spirit would conquer the serious economic situation, and change it into a more prosperous country. Both of them are addressing their speech when America is in tough situation.
This is a tactic which is used right through the text. The president also reflects on previous negative situations in America and compares it to more recent positive times. “...triumphed over war and depression.” And uses similes to paint a picture in the audiences mind of the extent of their journey. “from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope.” These statements reassure the audience and give them confidence that they can overcome these situations. Again Obama uses emotive language to appeal to patriotism.
By linking the aspects to the history of our founding fathers the speech was structured and strong. President Obama uses the theme of history and the method of pathos to create patriotism in his speech. President Obama creates a patriotic tone in the speech by mentioning all the “ups and downs” our country faced such as when he says “Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.” Leaving the audience with a sense of pride because this
Leadership Transformational-charismatic Before the election, President Barack Obama attracted the attention of American's and foreigners alike with a seemingly charismatic nature. A charismatic leader has an uncanny ability to draw others to his side and move them to accomplish a cause bigger than themselves. A charismatic approach is transformational if it invokes a permanent change in the people who embrace the leader's vision. During his first term, President Obama wooed at least some to his vision by showing the potential to make a huge difference in both domestic and foreign affairs. Cross-Cultural-Global Leadership Under the Bush Administration, America's image lost much of its shine.
Dr. Martin’s speech was inspiring a huge people and engaged them to raise their hands and claiming for their rights. His words were the key to motivate African-American to create nonracial society in the United States. Dr. Martin Luther King used a language that was understood by the illiterate and educated people too. He made people to seeing his dream in the speech and living it in the current days. In my opinion, he created a light in the mind of others because his speech was coming out from his heart.
Amidst excessive political television advertisements and larger-than-life billboard signs, Election Day brings forth the major topics of concerns of the American public. Voters ultimately end up choosing the candidate who they believe will have the solution to all of the nation’s problems. Not only do voters look for the “man with the plan” they also vote based upon the candidates’ prior political experience and success, as well the candidates’ view for the nation’s future. President Obama should be elected as president of the United States because he possesses quality leadership skills, political experience and success, has a clear vision for America’s future, has communicated a plan for solving the economic crises of the nation, and firmly
The media has had a great impact on the recent presidential elections. It is the most important and influential factor when determining who to vote for. The media has both positive and negative effects, it can make somebody look like a heroic person who is ready to lead the country no matter what happens, and it can also someone look like a babbling moron who has no clue about anything. The two main types of media that affect the election are paid advertising and news reporting. Paid advertising is when a presidential candidate pays to broadcast his message to the American people.
In the end Mitt Romney was the winner by far. Romney pulled through in the end making undecided voters make a choice. I hope that the next debate Romney is able to perform as well as he did in this debate, because I believe our country needs to see a change and that if Romney is trying as much as he says he is I believe that something good could work. As for Obama, he needs to sit down and practice for the next two debates, for it would be a shame for the President of the United States to look foolish a second time on National
When I was watching Romney’s debates, he was talking about “Obamacare” is not good idea and his one could be better, but I agreed to what Obama had to say and he had some strong moments, particularly when he criticized Romney's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher-like program and noted that "Romneycare" looks an awful lot like "Obamacare." I agree with the President Obama that he's not only thinking about now he is thinking about future. Us students who need good teachers and good technology - without these things we cannot succeed. People should remember what reality is and think practically. They just cannot come and tell that they will cut taxes and provide cheap healthcare programme for
The viral popularity became unprecedented in American politics and it became one of the most widely recognized symbols for Obama’s campaign. As he has said in 2008 to the Washington Post, he wanted it to “be appealing to a younger, apathetic audience, yet tame enough not to be seen as radical or offensive to the more mainstream political participants”. This it did and it made the people who aren’t even interested into politics to redirect their attention, if only for an instant to wrest action from the jaws of indecision. This led to The Guardians Laura Barton in 2008 to proclaim that “the images strength lies in its simplicity” and that “over the past few months it has acquired the kind of instant recognition of Jim Fitzpatrick’s Che Guevara poster, and is surely set to grace T-shirts, coffee mugs and the walls of student bedrooms in the years to come”. Not everyone was happy with the end result however, as Fairey’s Obama posters and a lot of his commercial and fine art are reworking’s of the techniques of revolutionary propagandists.
