It is interesting to note that this film almost paralleled to a point, the real life scandal of President Clinton and his threats of military action against Iraq; the film started production before the Lewinsky scandal, but opened up after it happened. To pull of the ‘war without a war’ idea, they turned to Hollywood; more specifically to Hollywood producer Stanley Motss to pull it off. So Motss and crew start planning and executing this fake war; they come up with slogans to support the war and the cause, recruit a singer to come up with a moving theme song (shades of Lee Greenwood? ), and even come up with actors to portray the needed parts. More importantly are the ‘leaks’ that are let out to the media; something that the media is more than willing to run with.

By the time November rolled around, Bush won by a sizable eight points. In 1992, Stephanopoulos had learned his lesson and he created the now notorious ‘war room’ for Bill Clinton’s campaign. The purpose of the war room was not only to respond to republican attacks, but to respond to them as fast as possible, often times before they were even broadcast or published. The goal was to leave no attack unanswered and the result was a remarkable campaign that pegged Clinton as the “Comeback Kid.” - The Three Methods Used To Answer Attacks: 1. Catch Them In A Lie.
Even to this day, 9/11 is one of the most respected days in our lives. On the date of September 20, 2001, former President George W. Bush took the podium to address the tragedy. It all started off in a melancholy tone, but he also sounded extremely determined. He did the best that he could that those lives were not forgotten. The quote “After all that has just passed, all the lives taken, and all the possibilities and hopes that died with them, it is natural to wonder if America’s future is one of fear.” was the beginning of Bush’s speech to all the people of America.
In the late 1990s, CEO Lord John Brown being the first company executive to highlight the existence of climate change spent over $200 million dollars on advertising campaigns to promoted CSR. In 1998, BP took over Amoco, this was the time when the ultimate downfall developed its roots for BP’s strategy was then to minimize the expenses on fixing the worsening Amoco equipment. In the majority of disaster incidents that followed, assets acquired in the Amoco merger were the major cause. Thus BP’s practice, led by CEO Lord Browne, of buying one company after another, firing employees, cutting costs, breaking safety procedures, pumping toxic chemicals back into the ground, using deteriorating equipment were bound to unravel in a series of environmental crimes. BP’s corporate culture aimed at getting rich and encouraging profits was apparent by BP’s firm commitment to fixed dividend policy.

James Monroe was the last president who was a Founding Father of the United States.
Mr. Kinsley even gives credit to former President George W. Bush Jr. making a “huge increase in public sensitivity to anti-Muslim and anti-Arab prejudice”, a primary focus after the terrorist attacks. Although it took many years for the general population to accept Muslims into society again, it happened. A large contributor to the reintegration of Muslims was the airport securities transition from “racial profiling” spot checks to random spot checks. That being said, and it now being twelve years later, this article does not make for a strong, effective argument. If this were still occurring today, it would not only create a level of resentment within the Muslim-American community, but it would also create a higher level of distrust towards Americans within many different Middle Eastern countries.
Criticizing Bill Clinton Speech Essay “If a President of the United States ever lied to the American people he should resign” William J. Clinton,1974 Introduction: Critics should pay a very special attention to the Bill Clinton apology speech. The speech of the ex-president Bill Clinton was a bright example of how perfect rhetoric techniques might fail to deliver the message of a president to a mass audience if it goes about his morality. In his speech, Clinton, actually confesses he had a private relationship with Monica Lewinsky. It is a rule that such a confession and especially from a person of the highest position in the society means the end of the career. It took William Jefferson Clinton seven month to realize that people need apologies not for the deed, but for the lies.
Armenian Genocide Resolution On March 4, 2010, House Resolution 252 was narrowly passed with a 23-22 vote. This resolution stated that the mass killings and deportation of the Armenians by the Ottoman Turks was indeed genocide. The resolution passed “despite a lobbying blitz from the Turkish government, which hired an army of K Street lobbyists to fight it” (Isikoff 1). Similar resolutions had been brought to floor vote before but the Turks’ “government-to-government realpolitik triumphed, preventing a full House vote three times since 2000” (Kosterlitz 4). Most Armenians living in America are descended from survivors of the calamity and grew up listening to stories about how the Ottoman Turks led their grandparents
A Nation Divided: The Affordable Care Act of 2010 “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.” -Nancy Pelosi at the 2010 legislative conference of the American Association of Counties (Holt, 2010) Making good on a 2007 campaign promise to bring about fundamental change, on March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama signed perhaps the most controversial health reform law in American history, the brain child of then Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), also deemed “Obamacare.” The law is designed to put all Americans under a single-payer or a universal health care
