Thus, giving her our trust in return for our vote towards Obama. Toni Morrison uses the rhetorical appeals of logos, pathos, and ethos to win over the legal voters of the United States and convince them that Obama is the best choice for this country as president.

3. Explain the concept of Republican Motherhood. Republican Motherhood was a way for women to be involved in politics by teaching their children to be good republicans, “rationally and carefully”. It was a woman’s duty in the new world. This led to a desire for education because women said it would help them teach their kids to be better republicans.
This is especially after the 9/11 attacks, where there seemed to be more of a resolve to bring back American civic engagement and social capital back on track. Through the advent of cutting edge technology, political participation – narrowly related to social capital – has been seen to spring up despite its earlier decent to its deathbed. This has stood to appeal that in the same manner, social capital and civic engagement could be springing up. The Obama campaign was seen to utilize young supporters and cutting edge technology in the mobilization of voters, especially from friends and relatives who lived in swing states. Campaign officials utilized the technology to find volunteers, record people’s political leanings, and decide on which regions to visit (Putnam, 2010).
According to a report published by Time Magazine, the authors wrote, “is a litany of mistakes, misjudgments, lapses and absurdities all cascading together. The Emergency Preparedness Plan in place at the time of the storm was heavily flawed and ineffective. Let’s begin with the citizens

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act joins this exclusive list” (Leahy). “In many ways the likelihood of a bill’s passage is proportional to the support it has when it enters the legislative queue and in many ways a bill’s prospects for passage have to do with both its initial popularity and the strength of its opposition” (McKnight). Even with proof that the VAWA Act actually saved the government money, more than $14.8 billion in the first 6 years, by reducing recidivism, Republicans in the House are having issues with this new reauthorization. (NACADV). “Just because a piece of legislation is morally right, has wide public support, and is high on the agenda of powerful members of Congress does not mean that it cannot be blocked or compromised by powerful interest groups with ‘deep pockets’ and the power to circumvent legislative mandates through manipulation of the regulatory process”
Cave asserts that, although they had a profound impact on the civic engagement and the results of the 2008 presidential election, the popularity and use of new media tools in the political process — as done by the Barack Obama presidential election campaign — is actually a mixed blessing. Cave admits that the younger voters attracted by the Obama campaign were a significant force behind his eventual victory in the election (59). A major advantage and reason for the continuously increasing popularity and effectiveness of the media tools, Cave says, is the casual, informal and direct style of communicating through e-mail and Facebook. The style and tone of communication through blogs, MySpace, Facebook or Twitter that is seen by some as “dangerous exhibitionism” is to the others a means to achieve “open-mindedness and consensus” (Cave 60); in the words of Mik Moore, it indicates “a willingness to communicate with large numbers of people in your network about what’s important to you” (qtd. in Cave) (60).
Comparing Michelle Obama's Speech with Ann Romney's Speech Michelle Obama's speech was an extremely powerful and personal one in which she was able to show the advantages for her children's future, if Barak Obama was reelected, affectively attracting the thoughts of voters. Ann Romney's speech was more based on showing to voters that there is always a solution to bad experiences, she used her miscarriages and illnesses as an example, and that Mitt Romney was the man to the solutions. Michelle Obama was extremely successful as she started her speech by remembering the voters what attracted them to Barak Obama four years ago, showing that he was still the same man. She showed to voters that, Barak and her started life with not much luck but due to her husband's drive and desire to succeed they achieved a better life. She linked this story to the fact that Barak wants the same opportunity for everyone to have help to have a chance to succeed and he was the only man to make this happen.

I got interested in this artist as the result of the controversy over the Obama poster used in the 2008 Presidential Election. The now iconic campaign poster was originally taken in April 2006 by the Associated Press photographer Mannie Garcia at a National Press Club discussion about the crisis in Darfur but later copied and simplified by Shepard Fairey. Though captivating, no-one was expecting it to become the basis for Fairey’s “Hope” poster, and a visual energy jolt which will be intimately associated with Obama’s campaign. Steven Heller in ‘Design for Obama’ (2009) has put it that “after allowing free downloads on his website, the poster seemed to post itself around the nation and in various forms throughout the world”. The viral popularity became unprecedented in American politics and it became one of the most widely recognized symbols for Obama’s campaign.
