In 2004, Obama walked up to the podium at the Democratic National Convention as a political novelty. The speech he delivered established Obama as a natural leader and transformed him into a future presidential candidate. Rich in demonstrative rhetoric, its purpose was to unite the American people through nationalism. The exploration of his rhetoric and style throughout this paper will cement why the speech was beneficially identity transforming for Obama's political career.
To keep the American tradition, President Obama signed an executive order requiring the loser of the Presidential election to leave the country. Obama stated "No Matter who that loser is".

Cigarettes are everywhere. These tiny objects that are held between the cusps of ones fingers hold unknown danger. They hold addictive substances and can lead to both immediate and long-term damage. Cigarettes used to be romanticized and glamourized by the media, but modern day campaigns have begun to reveal the truth about their dangerous effects. Through graphic imagery and audio choices, The Real Cost Campaign reaches out to young adults in order to demonstrate these consequences and render an emotional response of fear as well vanity by revealing an ugly side effect of smoking; distortion of skin.
The nation has come to know the GOP as a party that embodies the essence of conservative America. One characteristic of US conservatism is forgetfulness or strategic avoidance of sensitive issues that date back as recently as six months. Everything with the GOP is yesterday, today and a conservative future.
Bernie is now posting his best poll numbers of the campaign to date. He's only 4 points behind in Iowa and gaining, solidly ahead in New Hampshire, and has national momentum, too. What Sanders needed to do Sunday night was maintain that momentum, continue his appeal to liberal base voters, and blunt any attacks that Clinton might be tempted to unleash at him. He accomplished all of that, even if he didn't give a focused, dominant performance. His release of his single-payer financing details denied Clinton a major attack line, he avoided getting bogged down in guns (clearly his worst issue from the Democratic base's perspective), and he struck an tone that made him seem relatively above the fray as Clinton tried out various critiques targeting
So, the Republican National Convention is finally over! And I may sound like a broken record, but this really, bothered me. As you all have probably heard already, the whole thing was basically about fear.
In 2004 the United States of America held a presidential election as it does every four years. Throughout the process, from primary to convention, from the debates to Election Day, both the candidates and the media relied on rhetoric to influence the thoughts of the electorate. Because of the close results of the 2000 election and the bitter court battle that followed, the rhetoric of the campaigns of both major candidates in 2004 was stronger and more focused than before. To show the uses of this rhetoric and its effects on the public through the media, several topics are discussed within. First, the language used by the candidates, followed by a discussion of the political conventions and a look at the
The main goal of this paper is to assess why Americans tend to feel coldly towards the United States Congress. Looking at factors such as total income, I theorize that due to the large lifestyle gap between the citizens of the U.S. and their congress the American people might feel a disconnect to Congress and in return not feel warmly towards them. By controlling for outside variables and running a multitude of tests the results have shown that the relationship between income and feelings towards congress is not spurious and can be counted on as an accurate reflection of the American people’s true feelings. However, it is an opposite relationship from my hypothesis. I hypothesize that as income decreases feelings towards Congress would grow colder; instead, tests revealed that
The most recent presidential election has been one of the most dividing in the history of America. While President Trump won the electoral vote, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, creating a divide in workplaces, schools, and many other public places. The greatest challenges that the President will need to address first are the unity of Americans for the acceptance of all people and the education of young people, as they are the future of our nation.
It is very common among the United States’ political sphere to rely heavily on T.V. commercials during election season; this is after all the most effective way to spread a message to millions of voters in order to gain their support. The presidential election of 2008 was not the exception; candidates and interest groups spent 2.6 billion dollars on advertising that year from which 2 billion were used exclusively for broadcast television (Seelye 2008.) Although the effectiveness of these advertisements is relatively small compared to the money spent on them (Liasson 2012), it is important for American voters to think critically about the information and arguments presented by these ads. An analysis of the rhetoric in four of the political
Liberal rhetoric would lead us to believe that we live in an increasingly connected, and therefore improved, world. Images of Sherpas with cell phones and Amazonians with refrigerators are pointed to as evidence that by increasing global trade we are improving the lives of every human on earth. Given time, the expansion of free trade across the globe will lead to an interconnected world economy built upon a foundation of international cooperation and ever-rising standards of living. This utopian dream is the product of a brilliant public relations campaign, a carefully constructed façade that disguises the true nature of modern day globalization. In actuality, the spread of free markets is the utilization of capitalism as an economic tool
The logical fallacy detected in the political reading is deceptiveness because George W. Bush isn't telling the whole truth of what's going on in Iraq. He seems to be making light of the situation going on in Iraq, especially considering around the 2003 era which the Saddam Hussein regime and the U.S. invasion for oil, it's very chaotic. Misleading arguments are also seen because Bush is blaming the Iraqi people entirely for tensions, despite the U.S. invasion for oil, a personal gain. Appealing to pity because Bush is asking all American people to take pity but shaming Iraqis, not allowing Americans to take responsibility. For the Nader passage, delusion because of everything that's happening with technology, we have everything at our fingertips
Conservative dignitaries, friends and Distinguished speakers of this year’s Conservative political action conference… I want to first say thank you for inviting me to speak… It is not only an honor but will be the highlight of my life to not only address some of our party’s rank and file but, to also place emphasis on our core principles and just what it is that makes us conservatives.
