Conservative Charles Krauthammer uses parallel structure and figurative language to compare an Obama and Romney presidency. Frank Rich uses diction and ethos to present Romney as a bad person who should not be allowed the presidency. Conservative Ross Douthat’s column talks about the changing demographics of America and how it was part of the reason why the Republicans didn’t win the popular votes. In this column Douthat uses parallel structure by comparing Republicans constituencies and Democratic-leaning constituencies. This establishes ethos because he portrays the Republicans as well-to-do people who go to church regularly while he refers to the Democrats as unchurched and recent immigrants.
Rhetorical Analysis: “A More Perfect Union” Responding to the controversy raised by Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s former pastor and campaign participant, Senator Barack Obama delivered a speech, “A More Perfect Union” on March 18, 2008. Reverend Wright was criticized by the public because of his criticism of the American government’s policies in the Middle East. He holds an extreme view toward racial issue by asserting the poor black man “live in a culture controlled by rich white people” (Wright), and “[the United States] government lied about their belief that all men were created equal”(Wright). This divisive allegation was enlarged by the media and aroused many listeners’ doubts about Obama’s political association with Rev. Wright, who, being close to him, threatened Obama’s pursuit of the presidency.
In other words he told the society that they are stuck on unserious matters, while important political events are taking place. Bill Clinton’s goal was to make people get over the scandalous relationship and concentrate on America as a nation or basically subconsciously reproached the nation. Mr. Clinton, in this speech built the next strategy: not to fit the stereotype of a man bringing his apologies, not to be miserable, but to show how strong he is by saying these words aloud and therefore to how strong he can be in any other problem. He claimed to apologize, but at the
Research Paper President Obama's New Deal vs. President Roosevelt's New Deal The original new deal that was proposed by President Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930's during the great depression many columnists believe that it has been revamped into something that President Barack Obama believes can jumpstart the American economy. Since both of these men are from the Democratic Party and were voted into office by the American people under the promise that they would and could help jumpstart the economy that would lead to a decrease in unemployment. They both had a huge responsibility to the American people to hit the ground running. And although the similarities of the deals are almost to uncanny to be coincidence they each had key ideas on how to get the American people back into the workforce. I will be focusing on just a few key areas that have been struck due to the recession for President Obama and the Great Depression for President Roosevelt and how each man either fixed the problem or is attempting to.
President Obama provided examples by letting the audience know that a decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun. He also provided information on how Americans have been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience. President Obama is making appeals to the American citizens to come together to help each other he states in his speech no single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future. President Obama is letting the American citizens know that things are changing and we the people need to change also.
Stephen Douglas was a Jacksonian Democrat who supported the expansion of slavery, states rights and mass democracy. Abraham Lincoln was an ex-Whig who, before the debates, had a conservative view on slavery, which was to leave it where it was but expand it no further. He also supported a strong national government and was wary of mass democracy. The two had very different views that were supported by two very different groups of people. Lincoln started off his campaign very strong.
Thesis Statement: President Barack Obama is not the best choice for President of the United States due to the fact he is pro war, he does not put the American people’s needs first, and he is a liar. The president of the United States, What comes to your mind when you picture the person that is running our country? I picture an honest, person, with honor and integrity, compassion and a firm hand in giving the American People the best he can. The President should be doing things to better American people and America itself for that matter. I do believe that the current President, Barack H. Obama, is not the best choice for the American people.
When I was watching Romney’s debates, he was talking about “Obamacare” is not good idea and his one could be better, but I agreed to what Obama had to say and he had some strong moments, particularly when he criticized Romney's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher-like program and noted that "Romneycare" looks an awful lot like "Obamacare." I agree with the President Obama that he's not only thinking about now he is thinking about future. Us students who need good teachers and good technology - without these things we cannot succeed. People should remember what reality is and think practically. They just cannot come and tell that they will cut taxes and provide cheap healthcare programme for
The Intercultural Competence of Barack Obama On the Necessity of Cliché and Barack Obama’s Rhetoric On February 19, 2008, New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks, under the title “When the Magic Fades”, opined: “Up until now The Chosen One’s speeches had seemed to them less like stretches of words and more like soul sensations that transcended time and space. But those in the grips of Obama Comedown Syndrome began to wonder if His stuff actually made sense. For example, His Hopeness tells rallies that we are the change we have been waiting for, but if we are the change we have been waiting for then why have we been waiting since we’ve been here all along?” Then, on February 25, 2008, Gideon Rachman of the Financial Times wrote in his column on “Obama and the art of empty rhetoric”: “I have watched Mr Obama speak live; I have watched him speak on television; I have even watched his speeches set to music on a video made by celebrity supporters (www.dipdive.com). But I find myself strangely unmoved – and this is disconcerting. It feels like admitting to falling asleep during Winston Churchill’s “fight them on the beaches”speech.
AFFIRMITIVE ACTION vs. DIVERSITY There has been much said about Affirmative Action and Diversity. It is said that Affirmative Action has failed to “improve education and workplace discrimination” throughout the United States. Diversity in the workplace has its issues also, like communication, opposition to change, implementing and managing which are still issues with some organizations. I will begin by describing how Affirmative Action came about. Back in 1961 Affirmative Action was introduced by the late President John F. Kennedy as a tactic to make up for the discrimination that continued in spite of having the Civil Rights Laws along with the Constitution that guaranteed fairness and equality.
