In August 2011, Cain came in fourth in the Iowa Straw Poll, beating Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. He won the Florida Straw Poll a month later. Cain has won over supporters with his direct, no nonsense approach to reforming government. His plan for creating a fair, flat tax for businesses and individuals (999 plan) has come under fire by critics for being unclear and for potentially placing a greater tax burden on lower-income Americans. His sense of humor has also landed in political hot water for making jokes about building a electrical fence on the U.S. border.
Pamela Kipe Mr. Harris AP Language & Composition November 21, 2014 Rhetorical Analysis Portfolio Project - Frank Rich 9/11 Reflection Year after year when 9/11 comes around, Americans demonstrate their love for their country in patriotic lengths. Flags at half-staff, hundreds flocking to the symbiotic Ground Zero, where just thirteen years ago stood the roaring World Trade Towers, the monetary heart of New York City. Frank Rich proclaims his proposition, in an essay in New York Magazine, on how the attacks on 9/11 did not unify our country, despite the fact that that was supposedly former President George Bush’s objective, but rather ripped us apart. Rich’s use of a formal yet sarcastic tone accompanied with his diction and verifiable facts he gathered demonstrates just how 9/11 did not bring us together as a nation. “National unity proved to be short-lived,” is right.

Military Intervention led to the deaths of 18 American soldiers and subsequently shaped America’s foreign policy. In October 1993 United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR) was set up to broker a ceasefire between armed Forces of the mainly Hutu Government of Rwanda and the Tutsi-led Rwandese Patriotic Front, but with a ‘token force’ of 270 soldiers the task was clearly impossible. The lack of international commitment was clearly effected by the events of Mogadishu and to make matters worse in May 1994 President Clinton enforced a Presidential Decision Directive (PPD) which limited US involvement in peacekeeping operations to situations in which American national security interests were at stake, evidently they believed their national security was not at stake in Rwanda. Clinton’s stance was echoed by Kofi Annan who was then the head of peacekeeping for the UN. Annan on January 11, 1994, ignored the advice of Romeo Dallaire, the Canadian UN force commander in Kigali who “sent a "most immediate" cable to UN headquarters in New York indicating that a top level trainer of the Interahamwe militia had come forward with information to the effect that he had trained seventeen hundred men, now scattered in groups of forty throughout Kigali.” This message which Dallaire speaks about in his book ‘Shaking hands with the Devil’ is nothing less that
He walked away from his religious group and family because it hid a dark reality. Jeffs is number ten of twenty siblings in his family. He has three “sister-mothers”—two that are full-blooded sisters, and an estimated total of eighty-seven aunts and uncles. His grandfather was believed to be able to speak directly to God, making him one of the prophets of the FLDS Church. In Heaven or Hell, Jeffs explains his family was the “royal blood” of the FLDS, and so he was destined for high honor in the church’s elite.
He began by referencing an event that had happened earlier in the year where he had a run in with the Federal Communications Committee (FCC). He pokes fun at this mistake and questions why he of all people was chosen to speak at a prayer breakfast. “I'm certainly not here as a man of the cloth, unless that cloth is leather (Keynote Address at the 54th National Prayer Breakfast, Bono).” He uses humor effectively to lighten the mood, “Now, one of the things I love about this country is the separation of Church and State and although I have to say in inviting me here both Church and State have been separated from something else completely: their -- their mind (Keynote Address at the 54th National Prayer Breakfast, Bono).” One thing that Bono does is he uses vocalized pauses in the beginning of his speech. Vocalized pauses are filler phrases such as “um” and “er” that interrupts the smoothness of speaking and can be distracting to the audience (Sprague, 204). He also clicks his tongue or smacks his lips at the end of sentences.
On August 30, DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff declared it "an incident of national significance",triggering the first use of the newly created National Response Plan. Three days later, on September 2, National Guard troops first entered the city of New Orleans. The same day, Bush toured parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama and declared that the success of the recovery effort up to that point was "not enough". As the disaster in New Orleans intensified, critics claimed that the president was misrepresenting his administration's role in what they saw as a flawed response. Leaders attacked the president for having appointed
Barack Obama became the United States of America’s first African American president in 2009. He delivered his acceptance speech for the Democratic Party’s ticket in August of 2008 in Colorado after a close primary campaign against Hillary Rodham Clinton. His audience of 80,000 was Democratic supporters looking forward to his vision of hope and change for the United States, which had seen a severe downturn in the economy along with the never-ending war in the Middle East. His rhetorical intention was to inspire and lead the audience toward a new America that was based on the Democratic ideology of supporting the majority of the population not just the wealthiest people and corporations’ best interests. Barack Obama included his background as a young boy of middle class parents and eventually a single mother.
