I can acknowledge an opinion, especially if it is an informed one, however, I must say my reaction to this chapter is one of slight disgust at the lack of respect Zinn shows for a previous president. There are no mentions of Clinton’s healthy behavior or good deeds as president, and this is something that I think many chapters lack. As I continue to read, I find myself using more energy trying to preserve my own thoughts. I disagree with much of what Zinn says, yet I can find validity in some of it as well. I will say that even though the Clinton presidency was not the most effective presidency we have had, it is certainly not the most destructive, and at most, left the country in a passive
Consequently, the rhetorical usage of ethos, pathos, and logos that Ryan exemplified in his speech were very effective. Using pathos he was able to convince his audience that he is just like everyone else trying to make something of themselves in this country, and while some of his factual information and logical reasoning may have been a bit off, his audience was obviously able to overlook that due to their overwhelming positive reaction to his use of emotional appeal. As mentioned above, Ryan was only introduced as Romey’s running mate just a few weeks before the RNC took place, and his speech at the RNC was a very important part of the campaign as it was the population’s first chance to really get to know who he is. As mentioned, his goal was to make himself appear likeable, and he did that very
His use of ethos, pathos and logos in this speech and others, made it effective enough to land him a spot as Commander in Chief. He used ethos in a way that gained the respect of his audience in that he took on the role of being one of them. By using logos he made them realize what they as the Republican Party stand for. With his use of pathos he appeals to their emotional side but making them believe that change is for the sake of their children’s livelihood. Ronald Reagan’s speech “A Time For Choosing” was intended to persuade his audience to believe the wrong-doings of the government, and persuade he did.
W. Bush, and George W. Bush, in disaster relief efforts for the tsunami in South Asia, Hurricane Katrina in the United States, and the earthquake in Haiti.”( clintonlibrary) Why I find Bill Clinton influential in this field of work? Well there is several reason . I find him to be an Advocate and an political figure. Well I have read about his early life till he was out of high school he was taught to be respectful and did not judge people because of people race. He has several role models ; that who look up to that made to be who he was today.
The beneﬁts of well-used parallelism can easily be lost, however, by failing to properly match the form between each element. Look, for example, at the following quotation from President George W. Bush, talking about his old friends from Texas and the importance they hold in his life: I like my buddies from west Texas. I liked them when I was young, I liked them when I was
George Bush and bill Clinton are very different in how they served their terms as president. But they both have served this country with loyalty and a big audience of followers. They have both made history and during there speeches spoke with sincerity in trusting in their ideas to protect this
However, no monetary amount could correct the trauma that was brought upon this man by his own government. This in turn caused many Americans to question the actual usefulness of the Patriot Act. The feeling is that it doesn’t work and it allows government to skip important steps in trying to prove people are guilty or were truly involved in a crime. While there was without a question a mistake made, it is the knowledge gained from experiences such as this one in which government officials can reflect on and use better judgment in the
Even though both Jefferson and Grant Wiggins learned a good lesson, I felt that Grant was the one that had learn much more. Jefferson was just not open to his family members and those close to him, but had either recorded or kept his feelings inside. When he actually expressed his sadness and frustration to people, I guess some people would classify that as a big lesson learned, but I think Grant went through some major change. Grant had first felt that there was no point in his lifestyle. Why was he living like this?
His 106 Paper1 Due 10/15/2012 Truman Doctrine Throughout history, many people have put their thoughts into action to create a better environment for all. The American presidents have all contributed to society and history while they were in office. Their ideas of how the nation should be adjusted have helped as well as hurt the United States as a whole. One of these presidents that significantly altered the history was president Harry S. Truman and his Truman doctrine. In 1947, Harry S. Truman manufactured a set of guidelines he thought was appropriate for the situation the United States of America was presently in.
Initially, under the Hoover administration, the government did not do much to intervene on the economic crisis. Hoover was a strict constructionist, who believed that it was not in his power to intervene on the Great Depression. He feared that too much intervention or coercion by the government would destroy individuality and self reliance. Instead, Hoover held a stance on the economy that was largely based on voluntarism, expecting churches and other social institution to aid the poor. However, as unemployment and poverty grew, many became unsatisfied with Hoover’s take on the depression.
