Lee Bollinger most certainly did not deliver a proper introduction. An introduction is designed for one speaker to introduce another. “When you introduce one speaker to another, you want them to get interested in each other and to like each other: You want speaker and audience to be interested and feel warmth and friendliness. Also a speaker should give background information to enhance the speaker’s credibility with the audience (Hamilton Gregory, Public Speaking for College and Career).” Also and introduction should never insult or offend the next speaker. In lee Bollinger speech he accused Ahmadinejad of being petty and cruel and criticized his dictatorship as a president.
The opposition was so strong and intense that, Johnson not only declined the request by commission members, but also took additional six months to disseminate its findings to the public at large and put the issue in right perspective, but he himself failed to act upon it. The most often quoted statement from the report, the prophetic value of which is only being realized in recent times is: “The United States is moving toward two societies, one Black, and one White—separate and
But as with his refusal to enforce our immigration laws, President Obama rules like he is above the law." Politifact gave this statement a “Pants on fire” rating because researchers found the claim is a drastic distortion of what the Obama administration said it intends to do. By
When the government or the president addressed this issue they were practicing the art of rhetorical discourse by addressing and reacting to the given situation. Without the problem of health care reform, it is just pointless conversation occurring or what we call “small talk,” at the very least. Bitzer explains that there are three parts that make up a rhetorical situation in order for discourse to occur; exigence, audience, and constraints. The exigence is an imperfection marked by urgency; it is a defect or an obstacle. If I use the speech former President Bush gave after the 9/11 attacks as an example, he delivered those speeches due to the fact that there was a situation that required attention, or exigence.
Domestic Policies: Bush retained many of Reagan’s cabinet. Collided with the Democrats in Congress over his nomination of former Senator John Tower as secretary of Defense – womanizer, heavy drinker, and brawler; the Senate rejected the cabinet appointment, the first such occasion since 1959. Legislative Agenda: Bush vetoed to keep the Democrats from making too liberal decisions for example raising minimum wage. Resolution Trust Corporation – liquidate the failed Savings and Loans and rescue the still-viable ones – gave $166 billion to close or merge bankrupt savings and loan firms. Treasury gave $500 billion to keep financial markets from being rocked by bad judgment of bankers and politicians.
He is not looking to maybe persuade his audience of the cruel and bitter treatment of his people that came from Great Britain. He is very adamant about his argument and uses these words to help prove his point. Jefferson’s use of imagery helps the audience really understand the way things worked when he was in Great Britain and how it became completely necessary to dissolve the political bands between Britain and the United States. “He has refused Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.” This makes people develop this image of the King sitting on his thrown while people are not even given the necessary needs for living. “He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.” This helps develop this image of the King putting these people in these awkward and uncomfortable situations just to make it difficult to pass laws and make it so that it is not worth putting up a fight and they should just give into the King’s desires.
The President went forward to accuse the Democrats for conspiring to remove him from office because he had refused to boost their high support prices. Consequently, he admitted for not supervising his campaign staff adequately thereby leading to the Watergate scandal. During the televised speech, the President was noted to be nervous and was even misspelling some of his words but he still managed to control himself and plead his
These Factors started to turn everyone against the Tsar as they could see how terrible he really was and how much he wasn’t helping the country or its people which finally lead the end of the Tsar. In 1917 people started to lose faith in terms of reforms as the October Manifesto set up by Witte to help people and try to get the country back on track was removed after only a few years of it being in place not long enough for it to have an impact on Russian life. As in 1905 there had never been any real big reforms like on the October manifesto so people where excited as they thought something new and good would be
Success Through Success Ever pay attention to the manipulation of words used by presidents when giving a speech? Until reading “A Nation of Victims” by Reanna Brooks, and “Why JFK’s Inaugural Succeeded” by Thurston Clarke; the manipulation of words were subliminal. Brooks presents the audience with an analysis on President George W. Bush’s manner of speech. Brooks feels that despite his verbal blunders and linguistic stumbles, his words are purposely selected to hide certain issues and to negatively frame opposing view points. Also, Brooks says that Bush’s speeches are emotionally charged, “dependency-creating” and thus provoking fear amongst his listeners.
Anthony Murphree Mrs.Hartman Period 6 2/20/13 End Electoral Vote System The Electoral College system is no longer useful in today’s society and needs to be removed from the presidential voting system. When it was first created it was used because the framers did not have anything better to put in its place at the time. The Electoral College does not even do what it was originally intended to do (Encourage candidates to take small states seriously). It is also only used in the most important election, it was removed other elections because it was felt that the system was unfair. The Electoral College system is faulty and needs to be removed from the presidential voting system.
