January 20th 2017 marked the day that president elect Donald Trump took his oath to office. Perhaps one of the most controversial electoral processes in the history of the United States’ presidency, the possible implications of Donald Trump’s leadership will most likely make this one for the history books. His speech seemed surprisingly reasonable, astonishingly efficient, and very impactful in comparison to what many were expecting from him, because of the negative and possible detrimental image he has created in the minds of many Americans. Regardless, Donald Trump delivered a strong, decisive speech using unifying diction, well directed symbolism and varied syntax.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s State of the Union Address in the year 1942 opened with a powerful start. He remained good in posture, strong verbal skills, gestures and strong eye contact with his audience which goes to show confidence and being in control of your speech (Stephen D. Boyd, 2017). He addressed the Americans, the citizens of the United States before he mentioned anything. He went to show that the President, himself found faith in their spirits and how he was merely proud of his citizens. He presented a powerful statement to his audience by acknowledging them and according to Matt Eventoff, “a statement or phrase can catch the audience’s attention by keeping them guessing as to what you’re about to say next. Implementing the silence technique
In his inaugural speech given on January 20, 2001, George W. Bush address the country for the first time after being sworn in as the 43rd president of the United States. Millions of people from around the world tuned in to watch the president give his address. The people who voted for and against him are both wanting to hear what the president has to say. George W. Bush gives an effective inaugural address by using biblical allusions, collaborative language, and an anaphora in order to unite the country after a contentious election.
George W Bush Address to the Nation September 11, 2001: Rhetorical Analysis September 11, 2001 is a day that will be remembered in American history forever. This day was one of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil. More than 3,000 innocent people lost their lives that day. George W Bush had been president of the Untied States for less than a year at the time of the attacks.
The attacks of September 11th, 2001 left nearly 3,000 innocent Americans dead. It was the worst attack ever on American soil, and the worst terrorist attack the world has ever seen. It left America in a difficult situation-it must do something to confront the growing terrorism problem around the world. George Bush, the leader of the nation, had to come up with a response to this attack and gave a speech to Congress outlining his plan to combat terror. He made his purpose very clear throughout the speech, as he consistently laid out plans to combat terror. This plan specifically affected all Americans, not to mention many nations around the globe. Bush declared war on terrorism as a whole, and threatened to attack any nations that supported terrorist groups. He also pledged to not stop American aid until “every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated”. Bush successfully used literary devices;
All Speeches have there ups and down Its how you present it that really matters. If you have an organized speech your speech will present itself because it will flow out naturally. Making sure that you have constant eye contact with the audience will help sound you more credible. Most importantly making sure that the topic that you have chosen makes sense to what you are doing. While listening to the current even speech that Napoleon Dynamite did and the speech that SpongeBob Square Pants did it is clear that one has practiced more and demonstrated better speech concepts.
Without a good way of speaking to people, a speech-bearer will not get the message across in the desired fashion. America likes to be fed information and likes to hear and feel the passion in others rather than creating less public and unified little passions in themselves. Citizens like to hear their leaders interpretations and feel a sense of grouping from that, therefore most people will not have read the way Obama’s eulogy was written and analyzed it, but watched him read it and felt the rigor in his voice and therefore found a better sense of understanding. Things tend to make more sense to people when conveyed by someone they look to for guidance rather than when broken down themselves.
Bush’s speech contained all the elements of ethos, logos, and pathos in his speech addressing the traumatic events that happened on September 11, 2001. Bush was able to address the country and stand up to what happened and take control of what is to happen next. In our life today, there are a lot of things that happen whether it be something that us kids deal with at school like who left the garbage on the floor or whether it be out in the world in an event when someone gets shot and we are trying to figure out who did it. We need more people like President Bush in both situations where people stand up and take responsibility for what they did or what happened. The world is a big place and everyone needs to work together to make things change.

He spoke to citizens, victims, families that have lost their loved ones and military families that have their life on the line. Bush gave his country strength when there was a dire need for it. His speech was filled with rhetorical devices that brought peace to the chaos that riddled the country. Bush’s use of anaphora, homily and antithesis gave faith, wisdom and harmony to the country.

“Nobody cares how tough your upbringing was. Nobody cares if you suffered some discrimination. And moreover, you have to remember that whatever you 've gone through, it pales in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured - and they overcame them.” (Obama 6) In the speech Obama had presented at the graduation class of 2013 at Morehouse College, he wants them to remember their struggles and be able to overcome them to do what is right. Obama uses a lot of rhetorical appeal such as pathos, such as the fact that he did not have a father figure in his life, yet he reached the top position in the country after years of hard work and support from his single mother, and grandparents. The second most effective rhetorical appeal is ethos,
Throughout the speech Bush uses many sources to that strengthen his credibility and appeals to ethos. To introduce the speech Bush started with an Anaphora “Our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack.” Bush uses the word our to make the country feel as one and be together.

His speech that was broadcasted to the entire world highlighted everything America needed at this time of grief, and will forever be remembered.
