He lays everything down in front of them to see. This kind of honesty and sincerity that he shows to the people is a new form of persuasion. Nixon’s persuasion skills made this speech a successful one, which has stuck with people even today. He used his words effectively, and did the job of refuting most if not all of the questions presenting themselves because of the funds that were donated. His final thoughts that he leaves with the people reinforce his main points, and put his full support behind his decisions and his running mate Eisenhower.
The fresher metaphors are the ones he uses when he’s speaking about the future of the United States. These metaphors make his speech adaptable to many audiences. 4) Some words in the speech seem archaic or old-fashioned, some examples of these words would be “foe”, “solemn oath”, “asunder”, and “forebears”. These words not only make Kennedy sound more experienced and wise, but they also make the speech sound more formal and trustworthy. Syntax 1) Kennedy used these short paragraphs because they offer natural pauses so his audience can process and reflect about his main points.
Annalisa Clark ENGL 111 Sanders September 22, 2013 Rhetorical Analysis In Ronald Reagan’s 1964 speech entitled “A Time For Choosing”, rhetoric is used in attempt to persuade the audience that the government is beginning to have all control over our lives, and change is necessary for the good of their children. Rhetoric being, Ethos, Pathos and Logos are used in attempt to persuade and many times appease an audience. Reagan uses all three in order to succeed in his goal of persuasion. At the time of this speech, Ronald Reagan was merely an actor and an ambassador for the Republican Party, but his respect among the party was quite vast. He often did speeches at the Republican National Convention and at various presidential campaigns.
He wants to take care of the Americans together. The speech is very easy to read he is talking in a way that everyone can understand him. He is referring to the “old” presidents to support what he wants to do, and are making the people relate to situations, they know or have either been a part of or heard of. He is using a little bit of humor in the beginning of the speech, so that people can see that he is also a human and not just a person who makes things happen. He has a family whit two girls who are in school even though their father is the president.
Consequently, the rhetorical usage of ethos, pathos, and logos that Ryan exemplified in his speech were very effective. Using pathos he was able to convince his audience that he is just like everyone else trying to make something of themselves in this country, and while some of his factual information and logical reasoning may have been a bit off, his audience was obviously able to overlook that due to their overwhelming positive reaction to his use of emotional appeal. As mentioned above, Ryan was only introduced as Romey’s running mate just a few weeks before the RNC took place, and his speech at the RNC was a very important part of the campaign as it was the population’s first chance to really get to know who he is. As mentioned, his goal was to make himself appear likeable, and he did that very
He uses the word indoctrination in a negative tone creating negative pathos towards Obama. Glenn Beck knows his audience, republican parents, will react. When Glenn repeats the word indoctrination in a disgusted and sometimes sarcastic tone, and he scares the parents into thinking their children are being taught a partisan left wing agenda and to idolize Obama himself. Glenn knows as a speaker how
Kennedy's use of long sentences implies that Kennedy wants to be very descriptive for his audience. Kennedy states "The recent settlement between the industry and the union, which does not even take place until July 1st, was widely acknowledged to be non-inflationary, and the whole purpose and effect of this Administration's role, which both parties understood, was to achieve an agreement which would make unnecessary any increase in prices", in this one long sentence Kennedy allows his audience to know when the settlement will take place, the purpose, the effect and if both parties understood. By doing so his audience was more informed of the settlement. Kennedy lacks the use of the rhetorical appeal ethos but there is an understandable reason why. John F. Kennedy was born into a wealthy family, is a Harvard University graduate and the "Leader of the Free World".
America’s defenses were weaker and its position in certain international situations in greater jeopardy than he expected. He flooded Congress with request, held frequent and impressive press conferences, and proposed bold new national goals. Kennedy made an important innovation upon becoming president when he allowed press conferences to be televised live. He used these conferences and his personality, poise, and knowledge of government, to communicate directly with the public. None of his successors has felt it possible to abandon this practice though no one has done as well by
Long was well liked among most of his peers. His most ardent supporter was President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR). Having FDR as an ally, gave Long a feeling of invincibility. So much so, that he pushed his agenda of what America should be without regard for the American people themselves. In Long’s defense he only wanted to see what was best for the American people.
