Next, he needs to push American exceptionalism. He needs to address President Obama’s escapades to other countries apologizing on behalf of the United States and how wrong that was. This needs to be pushed in debates and in every way possible. The President of the United States needs to be a strong advocate of the country, instead of apologizing and appearing weak in the face of other nations. Allies and adversaries need to know that America seeks peace from a position of strength.
In his 2000 bid for the presidency Ralph Nader campaigned against the corporate powers dominance in the political landscape as well as the need for change in the manner of how presidential races are held. He also wanted universal healthcare, the legalization of hemp, and free universal education - meaning college would be free for every American citizen. Nader ran on a similar platform in 2004 and 2008. Opposition to the War in Iraq was one of the biggest issues in the 2004 campaign and Nader had always been at the forefront of this opposition. Nader has made it quite clear to his fellow citizens that he will always do his utmost to ensure that the rights of consumers are upheld and defended.
Brad Huntington Extra Credit Prof. Erica Riggs President Obama is now into his 100 days of Presidency and has taken some action already. In Pres. Obama’s Inaugural Address, he stated that some of major problems that we have going on in our country now will be taken care of immediately. Pres. Obama states ‘We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan.’ The war in the Middle East is an extremely controversial topic in America right now.
He is touching their national feeling when he is talking about the choice they have to make together, and that it is their responsibility to take the right choice. Obama makes them think about those who don’t have anything but who still are giving or thinking of others. That it is those people, the middleclass who he will help not the wealthy like Romney, in that part he is using logos when he is pointing out those things Romney will do and which consequences it will have if they chose Romney. He is not lying to them by saying his road is easy and short, no it will be long and tough, but together they can do it, together will they make it, no one will be left behind. He wants to take care of the Americans together.
Obama stated, “The people make it possible” and “people give me hope” while Romney also said that the “strength of America is based on its communities and people”. President Obama wants people to believe that with him America will be heading towards a good future and Mitt Romney wants to restore the promise of America. Obama and Romney stressed that with their plans, America will succeed. These two men also took time in their speeches to thank the “older” generation and all of those who have died for the rights and freedoms Americans enjoy now. There were only a few topics that Obama and Romney had similar ideas about and those were the use of renewable energy and education.
Although the status of the country was far different for Johnson that it was for Roosevelt, the principles each of them based their national plans on were parallel. Both men wanted to unite the community behind leadership and lift the dredges of society up without bringing anyone down. Johnson aimed to continue Roosevelt’s push towards a more equal and balanced society, and his methods were very similar to those used to implement the New
A More Perfect Union Critique “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union.” These are the same words that were presented in the Constitution as well as used in Barack Obama’s speech, “A More Perfect Union” during his presidential primary campaign in 2008. His speech addresses the racism and inequality that still exist in America that is dividing American society instead of uniting it. Obama uses his own experiences to reach out to readers as well as using allusions from history and the patriotic meaning behind the history to incorporate pathos and ethos in his speech. Obama is successful in his writing because he is able to persuade the audience by appealing to their emotions, while using specific details to create more credibility
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. In the other hand, Romney in both Presidential Debates showed aggressiveness and bad-temper. If he cannot keep calm in a debate, I think he would not be able to keep a positive figure for the people. Mitt Romney was a good debate but was not clear on the details. When a Jeremy, a 21 year old college student asks, what can be insure, if he’ll be able to pay his loans after he graduates.
He wants to the people to know the truth that Obama’s way is not the right way and that his way is. Romney used logical appeal in the beginning to have the audience think about the future and what it holds for them if he would to win the election. His use of pathos rallied the audience that built a fire inside of them like never before, so that they can vote for him in this election. Lastly he used repetition to show them the importance of the future of what it will look like for them if he wins. He is one step closer to the White House and of that dream becoming true for
One of the most influential promises President Barrack Obama made was getting the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell done away with once and for all by starting the bill of getting the policy appealed. President Obama to some has not done much to help the Unites States issues such as the number of people whom have lost their homes because of unemployment and the 3.6 billion dollar deficient that the country seems to have all the sudden fallen into. President Obama according to author Andre Michael Eggelletion of the Real deal talk website has mange to do so much for the US to name a few things he has signed an executive order on government contracting to fight waste and abuse, Signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, restoring basic protections against pay discrimination for women and other workers, Launched a U.S. financial and banking rescue plan, Provided affordable, high-quality child care to working families, Cracked down on companies that deny sick pay, vacation and health insurance to workers by abusing the employee classification of independent contractor.
