Presidential Debate 2012 Tuesday’s debate was punchy between President Obama and Mitt Romney. The debate opened with testy exchanges on energy in which the president accused Romney of ignoring renewable power. But Romney, too, attacked Obama for allowing over rising gasoline prices and faking support for fossil fuels. What was out of the ordinary was that, in the last Presidential Debate, Romney had been the aggressor while Obama was calm and not as irritated. In my personal opinion, I think Obama showed that he can lead the U.S. even in crucial times and that he will fight for us and still manage to keep a positive attitude.
References to his peers are systematic in this second album, both in lyrics and productions, which borrowed from Public Enemy('Remedy'), Schooly D ('Compton') and Dr. Dre (Da shit '). The album is filled with vengeful arrogance like in the single 'It's okay (One Blood)' The Game is not dead, long live The Game, "King of LA". He believed so strongly that he was one of the most important voices of contemporary rap, he ended up becoming. one piece will be a turning point to the album: 'Doctor's Advocate'. Game talks about his mentor Dr. Dre , while Busta Rhymes is trying somehow to tell him that it's key.
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.
This decision ends up backfiring which leads Democrats (and now some Republicans) to strengthen their aversion towards him. Taking this decision into consideration, as well as all of the evidence we have on Romney for being a “flip flopper”, people may begin to feel differently towards this man being the right choice for America. It seems that this close to the election, Americans are still trying to figure out the real, truthful views of Mitt
Last night, I watched the most recent episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. One of the segments was dedicated to a clip of Obama speaking during his campaign in 2007, where he supposedly made some racist comments and was supporting class warfare. Jon Stewart’s segment pulled out a clip from FOX News, where the anchor made a comment along the lines of “People are saying this has already been reported on, but I know it hasn’t because I reported on it the first time.” This clip was the central focus of the segment because of the sheer stupidity of his comment, let alone the fact that he contradicted himself by claiming something hadn’t been done and then saying he did it. I think the piece was negative, because it was meant to portray FOX
Breeze Wanaisie Writing 122 Kathleen Horton 2/19/13 The friendliest opposing voice Racism has been around for probably all of time. In our history there have been many ways, effective and not, to address this issue and to abolish it. King and Obama are two people that have attempted to do this. Although King and obama both are persuasive, king is more so because he writes in a friendly voice, which is more effective. The general tone of kings voice is shown threw out his entire letter.
In performance, I witnessed both candidates being respectful to one another yet Mitt Romney presented a stronger opposition and was aggressive at times. There was quite a bit of pivoting throughout the debate more on Mitt Romney behalf, President Obama was guilty as well. They both showed lack of credibility and consistencies, stating statistics as a response to questions instead of the facts.
While watching the debate, who got me off my feet and really motivated to vote for them? In all honesty I think both of them proved some points that makes me want to be on both sides. The 2012 Presidential Debate between Mr. Mitt Romney and Mr. Barack Obama was rather interesting, but both candidates had their highlights of the night, where they killed it, and both had their flaws of the night. While watching the Debate I came to the conclusion that candidate Romney seemed very confident in everything he said. He never really hesitated about what he said, he never second guessed, or rephrased what he said.
Milk, Gus Van Sant 1a) The film Milk portrays an important political history in America against the homosexuals in the 1970’s, seeing this film and the struggles that homosexuals had to fight for their human rights and political equality makes myself, who’s not sensitive about the issue, change my political sensibilities. 2a) -1 The ignorance about homosexuality has become more exposed as they described that being gay could get them fired, beaten up, or even killed. -2 To plan on having to root out every homosexual, simply describes a person who is insecure and cannot accept homosexuality. -3 A debate regarding the Proposition 6 between Supervisor Harvey Milk and Senator John Briggs indicates that Proposition 6 is more on hating the gays, rather than the concern for the children they are “trying” to protect. 3a) -1 When the homosexuals along with the heterosexuals were rioting for their social and political view.
The speech’s significance is apparent in the good choice of place (Edmund Pettus Bridge) and time (50th anniversary). Obama made a good use of words and information (ex: anticipation, fear, billy clubs, tear gas, freedom, equal treatment, hope), and quoted a joke “growing number of white people lowered the quality of the singing.” Obama challenged the audience with questions: “what could be more American than what happened in this place?” and used a metaphor “all you need for a night behind bars” to implicate that arrest and detention were possible. Obama made a good use of several quotes to persuade the audience such as: “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” He also gave many examples to describe things, places, and events such as knapsack, bedrolls, backpack, Lexington, Independence Hall. Before presenting his speech, Obama created a harmony with the audience by applauding in response to their greetings and conveying his love for them: “Well, you know I love you back.” Obama’s body language helped him communicate with the audience. He maintained a good eye contact with them that was obvious when he addressed a host of political figures, such as President Bush, and
