One of the most famous speakers during the 1770’s was a man named Patrick Henry. He was said to be better than any actor or actress because when it came to people he could move them to laughter, sadness, anger or whatever emotion he felt like inflicting upon them. When Henry mad his speech at the Virginia Convention in 1775, he was able to convince the members of the house to see the situation with England through his eyes by using charged words, repetition and always showing the utmost respect to those who had spoke previously Patrick Henry was a very well educated man. During his earlier years he had trained to be an attorney, this fact definitely contributed to his oratory skills. He was able to influence many important people with his thoughts and ideas In the
English 1010 27 September 2013 Rhetorical Analysis of Speeches Democrat Barack Obama is running for his second term as President of the United States and in this convention, he is accepting the presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention, as well as addressing the nation on the plans he has towards changing our future. In contrast, Republican Mitt Romney is appealing to the public about the issues he plans to address during his first term as president if he is ultimately elected at the Republican National Convention. In the comparison of these two presidential candidates, it is evident that both parties utilize the rhetorical devices ethos, pathos, logos and fallacies in their campaign speeches to persuade their audiences to vote in their favor. Current President Barack Obama uses each of the rhetorical devices effectively in persuading his audience. His use of ethos show his dependability and knowledge of the things that are causing such stress in America.
Checkers Essay Richard Nixon gave this speech in an attempt to convince the American people that he should remain on the Republican ticket as the Vice Presidential candidate. At the time, he was the target of a smear campaign over the 18,000 dollars that he received. This was the first speech in which an American politician did not deny the claim against him or just completely ignore it. The speech did a good job of explaining Nixon’s argument as well as providing the American people with evidence of his position. Richard Nixon is a credible writer because he writes facts about himself and others that can be verified.
Despite the vague implications of the word, it seems to be ringing well with voters – especially Democrats – and he has succeeded in framing himself as the candidate of “change.” At the age of 46, Obama is viewed by many as a young, fresh face, having only been on the Washington scene since 2005. But in spite of his popularity, Obama has several key weaknesses that will become more apparent in a national campaign. According to the National Journal, Barack Obama’s voting record makes him the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate (“National Journal: Obama Most Liberal Senator in 2007”). In other words, no other senator has voted more strictly along the party line. This will certainly raise questions about his promises of bipartisanship and uniting the country.
It was a great speech because of all the writing techniques that he used and ethos, pathos, and logos, used in the speech. This speech does not only bring us emotion, but authority and reasoning also it brings us face-to-face with the problems that our country had. This speech woke many people and urged them to change their ways. Of course, the problem continued and really still has not been solved completely, but we seem to have taken a big step since the last “March on Washington”. Martin Luther King is watching to see if we succeed his
No one should be turn down because they don’t have enough founds because they might not have the money but the intelligence is there and Obama believes in you. “Now its time for Congress to enshrine in law their right to pursue their dreams in the only place they've ever called home: America.” Castro said. Mayor Julián Castro definitely satisfied my needs. He told me all the information I need to know to help me choose on which candidate I would be voting for. Mr. Castro did an awesome job with his speech.
Barack Obama In my opinion I believe that president Barack Obama should win the 2012 election. I think that Obama is good president because he is a person that has accomplished most of his promises he talked about in his last election. He gives good speeches to the people so they could understand his point of views. He shows good effort to fight in what he believes. He has done many things to improve the United States like the economy, taxes, Afghanistan, energy and immigration.
They came to an agreement that he was the right person and he was sworn into office on January 17, 1911. Wilson wanted to come home and prove his campaign literature to the newspaper and every individual. When April came around Wilson was going against the first runner up James Beauchamp. After going through the primary election Wilson was not elected but he came back July 2 and was put on the ballot for nominated. Wilson did not know that living in the spotlight would be so hard.
America was looking for an "X" factor, and Obama's natural talent of oratorship equipped him for the advantage. But does being a good speaker make you fit to lead the country? Is Obama just a smooth talker? Were his talks of change and hope and progress just empty words? While many Americans swooned over Obama, others questioned his true ability to perform presidential
The way it looked Romney came with an answer to all of Obama’s statements he had just said, Romney had and answer/comeback to everything that Obama had just said he gave reasons for it all and supported them with facts. Overall, both candidates proved rather interesting points. I honestly think that they both are equally liked by everyone and that it is going to be a close call between to two in the long run. The 2012 Presidential Debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama was rather interesting, both candidates had their highlights of the night, where they killed it, and both had their flaws of the
