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
John F. Kennedy’s purpose to his inauguration is to inspire the citizens of the United States, and to persuade his audience to merely participate in transferring his several goals into reality. It is clearly stated in Kennedy’s inauguration speech that help will be needed by the world if these goals will ever be achieved. In the act of persuading his audience Kennedy uses many rhetoric strategies to achieve the support from his audience that he is hoping for. In my analysis I can assert that Kennedy establishes his purpose in a persuasive way through his distinctive syntax and diction. Kennedy uses many complex formations of syntax and diction to persuade his audience.
“…in Minnesota, the same party that brought you two terms of George Bush and Dick Cheney will ask this country for a third. And we are here because we love this country too much to let the next four years look like the last eight.” Obama not only is he showing the trait of how Americans love and devote time into the country but he is also questioning McCain’s abilities as president. “But the record's clear: John McCain has voted with George Bush ninety percent of the time. Senator McCain likes to talk about judgment, but really, what does it say about your judgment when you think George Bush has been right more than ninety percent of the time? I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to take a ten percent chance on change.” Obama is talking about how important change is to American’s and how George Bush did not accomplish that, and McCain supported Bush most of the time.
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.

Thomas 1 Allison Thomas Carrie Waldrop English 112-160 July 2, 2012 Address to the Nation On January 20th of 1961, John F. Kennedy, the youngest president of the United Sates of America addressed the nation and world in his inaugural address, after a challenging election and precarious period in which our country was enduring. With issues such as the Cold War and the cruel inequality issues our county was facing the success of his speech was imperative. In this thoughtful, well worded speech he challenged, inspired and provoked Americans to become passionate about their country stating, “ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country.” (Kennedy) The words chosen for the address were well thought out, planned words, which were carefully placed and spoken beautifully. In his inaugural address Kennedy argues that new times are on the horizon for the United States and gives examples on how to unite the country and world. At the beginning of the inaugural address Kennedy begins with a strong and reassuring statement “We observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom-symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning-signifying renewal, as well as change.” (Kennedy) This statement demonstrates humility by removing his personal gain and turning it into a victory for the American people.
Bill Clinton versus George bush Former president Bill Clinton’s supporting Barack Obama speech and current president George Bush’s acceptance speech both opened up with a standing ovation all though bill Clinton’s lasted a bit longer. Being that bill Clinton is from the Democratic Party and George bush our president being a part of the Republican Party, there bound to have different ideas on how to approve this country especially economically; although some of the issues they address are similar. Bill Clinton intrigued the audience with his jokes and sincerity to supporting Obama. “Hillary told us in no certain terms that she will do everything she can to elect Barack Obama ,that makes two of us, actually that makes 18 million of us- because
Brighton Fontenot Ms. Thompson ENGL 1010 – 38 6 October 2012 The Immigration Conflict In this essay I will explain the dispute over immigration between President Barrack Obama and his rivaling political candidate Mitt Romney. Barrack Obama, a member of the Democratic Party and the current President of the United States believes the immigration system is unfair and has made several statements promising to make it more efficient and just. Obama has said “As long as I’m President, I will not give up on immigration… because it’s the right thing to do, period.” To illustrate his obligation to this issue Obama has made a commitment to work alongside Congress in order to pass the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act is an act to reform immigration
Shawn Howell Professor Leyva October 09, 2012 Writing Journal #3 The Presidential Debate On October 03, 2012 the presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney began with moderator Jim Lehrer. I watched the debate wondering, what will the candidates state in their plans to recuperate the United States of America? How will they perform? Will their speeches and performances be convincing to the people of America. In performance, I witnessed both candidates being respectful to one another yet Mitt Romney presented a stronger opposition and was aggressive at times.
Kennedy begins his inaugural address by establishing unity in the United States; he demonstrates this by using anaphora towards his audience. He states this in his address in order to emphasize unity to the nation and prove that “united there is little we cannot do.” This creates a clear message from the president conveying a hopeful tone that reassures the nation that a better time is ahead. Kennedy announces, “To those,” in the beginning of paragraphs 7-9 to separate his thoughts.
