Instead, Romney used his time to rebuke Obama and did not express his position as much. “Why am I lowering taxes on the middle-class? Because under the last four years, they've been buried,” Romney said. Even though, Romney tried to overcome Obama; Obama fought back better than the last presidential debate. When Romney attacked Obama for hindering the use of coal, the President recalled an appearance of Romney as governor of Massachusetts, where he vowed to shut down a coal-fired power plant.
Thirteen wasted years.” To what extent do you agree with this view of Conservative rule between 1951-1964? 45 marks. Harold Wilson’s quote that the Conservative period of 1951-1954 was “thirteen wasted years,” came about during his 1964 election manifesto and was a condemnation of the Conservative parties policies. He won the government election of 1964 with a small majority of 13 seats and believed this was ultimately down to the failures of the Conservative government under Eden, Macmillan and Douglas-Home. This is in contrast to the optimism that Macmillan had of the period stating that people had “never had it so good.” A generalised view is that the Conservative government had missed big opportunities to increase Britain’s status in the world, however not everything can be seen as a waste as the Conservatives had a clear manifesto, which was something that the Labour government did not appear to have, and they had economic and social success throughout Britain.
Hayes, America's nineteenth President, began to heal the nation after the ravages of the Civil War. He was well suited to the task, having earned a steadfast reputation for integrity throughout his career as a soldier and a statesman. Upstanding, moral, and honest, Hayes was elected after the most lengthy, bitterly disputed, and corrupt presidential election in history. Hayes's father ran a successful farm and whiskey distillery in Ohio but died ten weeks before Rutherford was born. Raised by his single mother, Rud developed a very close relationship with his brilliant sister, Fanny Hayes, who encouraged him to achieve the prominent career denied to her because she was a woman.
She had one brother, Conrad, who served as a U.S. marshal in Little Rock, and they all lived with her grandmother, India Peyton. When the Brown Vs. Board Education passed she was nearly raped by a white man but saved by one of her classmates. In 1958, the NAACP awarded the Spingarn Medal to Beals and to the other members of the Little Rock Nine, together with civil rights leader Daisy Bates, who had advised the group during their struggles at Central High. In 1999, she and the rest of the Nine were awarded the highest civilian honor, the Congressional Gold Medal. Only three hundred others have received this.
William Howard Taft was nominated by the support of Republicans and the conservative wing. Since Theodore Roosevelt failed to receive the Republican nomination, TR and his supporters formed the Progressive Party, (nicknamed the "Bull Moose Party") so he was chosen as its candidate for President. Eugene V. Debs, knows as a American Union leader and founding member of the International Labor Union and the Industrial Workers of the World, was a nominee of the Socialist Party. The fourth runner in this election was Woodrow Wilson, supporter of the Democratic Party. He was nominated on the ballot thanks to the support of William Jennings Bryan, a three-time Democratic presidential candidate.
Despite being a Democrat early in his political years, he quickly switched into the Republican Party after being overlooked as a candidate in the Democratic Party for district attorney. His dirty campaign to win the position as circuit court judge proved to be an ominous foreshadowing to his later era of “McCarthyism.” To stimulate his political career, McCarthy quit his job as circuit court judge and joined the Marines during World War II. After his short military career McCarthy then ran as the Republican candidate for the Wisconsin Senate seat,
Anna Anderson is known as one of the best known of several imposters who have claimed to be Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia. In 1927, an investigation funded by the Tsarina's brother, Ernest Louis, identified Anderson as Franziska Schanzkowska, a Polish factory worker with a history of mental illnesses. After a lawsuit lasting many years, the German courts ruled that Anderson had failed to prove she was Anastasia. Between 1922 and 1968, Anderson lived in Germany and the United States with various supporters and in nursing homes and even including at least one asylum. From early 1929 Anderson lived with Annie Burr Jennings, a wealthy Park Avenue spinster happy to host someone she supposed to be a daughter of the Tsar.
In 1832 her family moved to America where she became an avid abolitionist throughout her late childhood and early adulthood. In 1836 her father’s sugar refinery burned down and in 1838 her family moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in an attempt to re-establish the business, unfortunately three weeks after their move Samuel died from Bilary Fever. Pressed financially after her father’s death Elizabeth and her three sisters started a school for Young Girls. In 1894 her sister Anna, helped Elizabeth acquire a teaching job paying $400 a year in Henderson, Kentucky. In 1856 Blackwell adopted Katherine “Kitty” Barry a Scottish Orphan.
Democratic newspapers dubbed him 'Spotty Lincoln', and indicated that he had committed political suicide (McPherson, 2000). This label would come back to haunt him when he ran in 1848 for the Whig presidential nominee against Zachary Taylor. Although Lincoln's successor in the House, his former partner Logan, lost due to the backfire against the Whig party's antiwar stance, Taylor did win the presidency. However, most disturbing to Lincoln was the fact that he did not get the patronage appointment to commissioner of the General Land Office, as he had anticipated. Lincoln returned home to devote his time to his law practice, disheartened with politics, and became one of the leading attorneys in the state.
Reese H. One of the most inspiring women to me is Oprah Gail Winfrey. She was born on January 29, 1954 at 7:51 P.M. EST in Kosciusko, Mississippi, USA. Oprah was the daughter of two unwed teens, Vernita Lee and Vernon Winfrey. Oprah had two siblings, one half brother and one half sister, that both died. Oprah was originally named “Orpah” after the Biblical character in the book of Ruth, but there was a typo on her birth certificate.
