The Bull Moose Party, was a former political party in the United States, founded by Theodore Roosevelt during the presidential campaign of 1912. The Bull Moose Party was formed because Theodore Roosevelt was beaten in the Republican primary by Taft yet still wanted to run for president. Right around this time, the political party called for direct election of U.S. senators, women's voting rights, reduction of tariffs, and many social reforms. Roosevelt, who served as the 26th president of the United States from 1901 to 1909, began his campaign as the party's presidential candidate. A key point of his platform is "Square Deal", Roosevelt's concept of a fair business competition based on society and the added benefits to Americans who need it.
Disasters are something that we do not want to happen,however in the events of the tragedy of Pearl Harbor,The Challenger,and 9/11 these are all events that we had to cope with but the president had to find out the best way to communicate with grieving americans. So in all of the situations they spoke in a speech trying to reach out to americans and help them recuperate from there negative feelings and mend their minds to a normal state. While people can be affected by events words change people and healing is a great step in the grieving process towards their full support and understanding to the situation. Communication is used through all of society and in our most critical times we can use history to give us aspiration and the forgiveness knowing they died in a honorable way. Let 's go check out how these situation were handled by these 3 presidents.
FDR Infamy Speech The speech was given after the attack on Pearl Harbor known as the “Infamy speech”, was one of the greatest speeches ever given. The speech was given by Franklin D. Roosevelt who was president of the United States at the time of the attack. FDR’s presidential term lasted from March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945, when he died. FDR became president of the United States midway through the Great Depression.
On December 8, 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt spoke to Congress and asked for a declaration of war against the Empire of Japan. In his speech, Roosevelt determines his actions in requesting a declaration of war was justified under the guideline of the Principles of the Just War. The Causes that made this war exist is because, the United States supplied over 80% of japan's petroleum and raw materials. When the U.S. announced the trade embargo, they cut off 90% of Japan’s oil supplies.
A 1940 movie, The Great Dictator, contains one of the most well given speeches of all time. The nation has a new dictator that discriminates against Jews. A Jewish man who fought for its nation in the first world war has been arrested along with a man he saved during the war. They are able to escape before being placed into a concentration camp and is granted with an opportunity to change the lives of millions.
Modern presidents “have a duty constantly to defend themselves publicly, to promote policy initiatives nationwide, and to inspirit the population” (Tulis 1987, 4). This is achieved through the rhetorical presidency which is a theory based on how the modern twentieth and twenty-first century presidents communicate with the people and defend their use of force and executive power in comparison to the lack of communication in the same way with previous presidents. It used to be that the majority of the president's rhetoric was directed towards Congress. They also preferred written communication over oral addresses.
Les Brown’s “You Deserve” speech was amazing in my opinion. To start off with the feedback, his appearance was great! He had on a suit, tie and even a pocket square. It showed he took this speech seriously and prepared adequately. His enthusiasm was really what made this speech what it was.
FDR’s speech affected many people in several different ways. People in the American military may see this speech as endearing and inspirational because of the struggles they faced directly at the hands of the Japanese. Those of Japanese descent living in the United States might have felt either shame or great honor in the speech. It all depends on how loyal they were to Japan or the US. People in Hawaii may have felt scared that Japan attacked on their home land, but empowered by the speech because of how FDR said that “....this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.”
Chaos. Grief. Anger. As a nation we all remember a horrific time in our history that occurred over thirteen years ago. Though I was only five years old at the time, I remember the events of September 11, 2001 as if they happened yesterday.
I just wanted to write to express some of my troubled feelings after the Veterans Day assembly. I would like to point out that I think having a Veterans Day assembly is a very good idea so that we as a school can take time to honor and recognize everyone who risked their life to protect our country. I really think Veterans Day is a unique holiday where our country can take time to appreciate everything the veterans have done for our nation. It is also somewhat of a personal day for my family because both of my grandfathers are veterans. That being said, I was very upset and disappointed with the assembly we had at Lick.
