The president uses several facts, such as troop numbers, numbers of nations involved, and machinery being used in order to present to people the facts of the situation. Besides just presenting logical reasoning, or logos, the president also uses ethos in his speech, also known as ethical appeal. Though this is what he uses the least, he does use it to convey his message to military families and the general American. Most Americans are going to listen to the president because he already has their attention, and so Bush also tries to appeal to members of the United Nations, as well as Soviet Russia, and other nations of the world. Also throughout the speech is the usage of pathos, which appeals to the emotions of the listener.
He did a great job of communicating his subject visually as well as by clearly stating the main idea in his words. Block appealed to logos because everything he discussed about the Watergate Scandal was true and because he stated the counterargument that the president was not a crook and then quickly proved this statement to be invalid by showing him editing tapes to cover things up. He appealed to pathos by making the readers angry with their president, as he shows him in a negative light as a crook. In addition, he easily appealed to ethos because he was a well establish political cartoonist who was frequently published in the Washington Post, which, as far as the readers were concerned, was a very credible
Another example is “With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deed,” this goes back to president Lincoln second inaugural speech. Kennedy uses this to help the people grow and open their eyes to “the land we love.” The president uses these historical allusions for trust and to make the citizens realize they made the correct choice. President John F. Kennedy in his inaugural address’ purpose is to induce a sense of protection and security to the American citizens. He effectively does this by conducting an optimistic tone throughout his speech in order to receive trust from the
Conan asks Maria why he interpreters decide to help Americans. Marie answers that most of them do it not only for financial gain but also out of their loyalty to their country. They see the invasion of USA as a positive step for their country and are genuinely interested in helping rebuild it. Conan asks Tariq the same question and his reply is somehow interesting. He believed that Iraq would somewhat be a part of the USA and Americans would rebuild the entire infrastructure such that Iraqis would have the same basic services like good education, food and leisure.
Robert F Kennedy’s speech was a passionate speech. He took command of the speech and delivered a very intense speech. He nurture an adverse situation that caught everyone in attendance off guard since no one knew about the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He mentioned that he also had a family member killed. The murder of Dr. King has filled many Americans, many Blacks and minorities with bitterness, hatred and a desired for revenge.
I am proud to live in a country with such a glorious heritage. As I hear those words, I am filled with courage to stand up for my beloved country and its ideals. General Dewight David Eisenhower had enough courage to go to Europe and lead the Allied troops against those that threatened world security. He was willing to sacrifice his life for the freedom of the world. To me, patriotism is not only fighting for the freedom of our country but also for the freedom of mankind.
Although some believe the tragedy of September 11th could not have been prevented based on various reasons, more reasons exist to believe that the Al Qaeda terrorists could have been stopped. On a clear, sunny day in September 2001, 19 Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger planes and carried out coordinated suicide attacks against the United States of America. It all started at 8:46a.m. when “American Flight 11 crashes into north tower of World Trade Center”, killing everyone on board, plus hundreds of innocent people inside the building (Fox News). Less than 20 minutes later, “United Flight 175 crashes into south tower of World Trade Center” (Fox News).
Even though Allen thinks that the Supreme Court wasn’t wrong in their decision, his opinion is very strong, as he suggests how people should treat the flag with respect because of its importance. Furthermore, the tone in both texts fits in with the context of the written
He reveals that he is the United States President and that he is a proud American. By Regan going about dressing in patriotic colors for this particular speech he creates a sense of creditably to the audience. Not only does his clothing and the way he flow his presentation together. By Regan pausing to let the crowd cheer generates a time for the crowd to express their emotional happiness for what he is stating. Throughout this part of the speech Regan is creating vivid concrete language that is loaded with emotional descriptions like when he says, “…the token jesters intended to create false hopes.” The audience grasps a sense emotional pity making them feel genuinely bad about the situation.
Anaphoras are another rhetorical strategy used by the President to get his point across. George W. Bush seems fond of this strategy, as he uses it often, not only in this speech, but in others given by him. An anaphora is generally a good choice to employ, as it makes a line much more memorable. One memorable line from the President's speech was "They hate our freedoms - our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other." This is also an example of tripartite structure, which is used effectively in Bush's message.
