FDR’s speech affected many people in several different ways.

Theodore Roosevelt uses logos throughout his speech. He uses it to show that he knows what he is doing and using his intelligence to convey that he is the right person to lead the United States.

His logos is also shown when he talks about the Republic of the days with Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Bringing this into the speech shows that he knows his history on the US and knows that they did great things for the country, showing that he will also do great things.

In RFK’s and Bill Clinton’s there are many common purposes. In the two speeches, the speakers try to encourage their audience and the rest of the people in the country to overcome their hatred, anger, sadness, and grief to continue on with making America a better and safer place to live.

Although Ronald Reagan’s speech about the Challenger explosion was given during a time of great sorrow, the speech was successful for being a way to unite the country as one to deal with the loss as a whole, and to bear the weight of such a horrific tragedy together. With the Challenger disaster being the first one of the space program to have deaths in flight, the United States was completely shocked by the misfortune of the shuttle. Ronald Reagan’s speech on the disaster was a way to have the nation not blame the space program for the deaths of the astronauts, but a way to have the nation face the disaster with strength and push through the event with more courage than before and to continue exploration into space. Ronald Reagan begins his speech by addressing the nation and stating how he is exempting the State of the Union
John F. Kennedy uses literary devices to capture the attention of the audience, sets himself equal to his audience getting their attention and support, and uses the christian religion to strike the emotions and gain the support of his audience.

One example of repetition that Kennedy uses is, “Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.

The bombing of Pearl Harbor is an event that is unforgettable and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s speech in response to this shocking attack is one of the most significant speeches of all time. The significance of the speech is the fact that America joined into the fighting of World War II, something the Americans didn’t want to do at first.

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).

One situation I have been in where the speaker is not in tune with the audience is when the political figure Joni Ernst came to speak to my school about the election last year. We happened to have had an exchange student from Ukraine that month, whom Mrs. Ernst had no idea about. But the rest of the school knew that the exchange student was a student reporter who was going to interview Ernst after the speech. Ernst wrapped up her speech with talking about how being in Ukraine was, how prehistoric they lived, and how bad their economy was- which made the exchange student angry and the school fearful for the confrontation that was about to come. In the end, Joni Ernst should have spent her time talking about her beliefs and what she wants
