During the 1960s, the value of beauty and physical appeal unexpectedly increased during political debates. Several graphic designers recognized this new appreciation and used magazine covers and other forms of communication to portray its significant growth in America. In the year of 1968, art director and designer George Lois created an iconic cover for Esquire magazine’s May issue (Figure 1). Crafted as a photomontage, the cover features Richard E. Nixon getting prepped and pampered by several beauticians while resting with his eyes close. Using Lois’s famous Esquire cover as a case study, I will research how graphic designers epitomized the new power of beauty and its influence on many Americans’ views of important political figures.

On November third 1969 Many families around the US gathered around their TV screens waiting for the President’s face to magically appear before them. Many others gathering around their radios tuning in and waiting for the President’s bland-monotone voice. Analysing this famous speech made by this infamous leader makes one ask why he made this speech and why, in it, he essentially used great lengths of propaganda to persuade his audience.

Richard Nixon uses the appeals of logos in his speech that seem logical but all they do is mask the face of reality. In his speech Nixon states, “To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as president, I must put the interest of America first.” The harsh reality is, Nixon would’ve been impeached, so he decided to resign so he could exit his presidency and still have some pride left. Nixon also said, “I would’ve preferred to carry through to the finish…
George Washington wanted the best for his country, so he created a Farewell Address before the end of his presidency. This farewell address was written to give advice for the next generations to follow to make sure America continues to be a strong country.

The speaker is Franklin Delano Roosevelt is trying to convince congress to go to war with japan for bombing pearl harbor(December 8, 1941); The speech is a persuasive speech but also a rally at the same time because he knows that they will probably go to war, he used words such as “disastrous” and “infamy” to describe the attack on the U.S, he uses small phrases such as “last night” and “so help us god” witch gave people a sense of nationality they haven 't felt before, and made them want to get revenge and fight the japanese (japs). He uses repetition and anadiplosis to repeat his message and drive what he is saying into his spectators/listeners heads, as well as pre-empting, which makes things sound way more serious and crucial and get back at them for what they 've done. Roosevelt 's purpose was to make the people of the U.S.A. to want to fight the Japanese empire in order to get them back for what they 've done to us. President Roosevelt is addressing Congress and people of the
In Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, he stressed that the citizens should carry on this war “with malice toward none” and “with charity for all.” This statement could be considered self-contradictory because the North had immense amounts of hate for the South, as did the South for the North. Despite their hate for each other, Lincoln had much desire for this war to end quickly, as he wanted to reunite the Union as it once was before this horrendous dispute started. Lincoln found it mandatory that the people relieve all hate for each other in order to obtain a peace that only the end of the war could possibly bring.

On January 20, 1961 President John Fitzgerald Kennedy delivered his inaugural address to the American people. In this speech Kennedy portrays the 1960s as a new beginning; a chance to not only improve America, but to improve the entire world. He attempts to create an optimistic tone that would have been reflected in the audience by describing his beliefs in the future and his support and admiration of the past. He appeals to his audience religiously and patriotically by stating that all the blessings America has are because of God and the hard work and determination of its citizens (John F.

In 2008, Obama took an opportunity to speak on the issue of the current state of racism in America, after many controversial remarks were made by his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, that were deemed racist by the majority. This was only eight months before he would become president, and very much set forward a path he would follow through with his presidency. Beyond all political views, though, did Obama do a quality job at explaining the truth behind racism in America today, or did he present a biased interpretation that fit his worldview? Firstly, Obama briefly discusses the long history of black rights in America, from the original constitutional writing up through his campaign.
