As a result of that the scores on test have gone up 64%. People going to school has risen tremendously. His speech is the reason for most. Obama’s use of a hopeful and promising tone along with the use of pathos, logos and ethos to appeal to the audience in a relatable and understanding way. Obama wanted to be the next president, but not just that he wanted change.
This gives the very first glimpse of the racial discrimination and racial issues faced by Barack Obama right from the age of 12 or 13. Obama still had the thrive to continue and achieve everything that he aimed for. "There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white". This is during the time when he describes a job interview with a man in Chicago.
Andrew Jackson was chosen for president for the smart decisions he made during the war. Andrew Jackson was to be thought to be a great leader for this country. However, some people didn’t think he made the right choices for the country. A person tried to assassinate him but failed and has misfired. Andrew Jackson went against the Supreme Court and did something that wasn’t in his command.
I chose to do my assignment on the Nate Silver speech about how racism affect how you vote. Nate talked about the election where for the first time in the United States, a large white group of voters voted for an African-American candidate for President. Barack Obama did quite well. He won 375 electoral votes and about 70 million popular votes. This was more than any other presidential candidate ( of any race, of any party ) in history.
Obama urges equal opportunity when he states, “you’ll hear the determination in the voice of a young field organizer who’s working his way through college and wants to make sure every child has that same opportunity (pg 2).” Obama emphasizes that background will not define one’s future. He feels strongly about creating opportunities for the younger generation. As one can see, Obama’s acceptance speech was not just about his gratitude for being re-elected, but also his plans to move this nation
During his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention Obama speaks “Well, I say to them there is the United States of America. There is not a black America or white America and Latin America and Asian America; there’s the United States”- “of America”. This, at least for me gives a sense of power or upliftment that would be received in a church environment. The same goes with his use of epistrophe in his speeches. When epistrophe and anaphora is in use it gives me a feeling of strength and to have Barack Obama, the first black President of the United States of America makes me feel that even when the odds are against us we will persevere.
George Washington and Barack Obama had different views about how America would be like.

During George Washington speech senator William Maclay of pennsylvania remarked that George Washington looked agitated and embarrassed. During Obama's speech he looked confident and he acknowledge the crowd very well.
“The Men we Carry in Our Minds” is a narrative essay written by Scott Russell Sanders that provides an insight to the overlooked lives men had to endeavour just so they could be at peace with themselves and their families. Sanders wants to remove this misrepresentation that all men are taking something from middle-class women and that instead he believes that any boy or girl and who lived in “dirt poor” (page 332) conditions would grow up to be men and women in a society “where the fate of men is as grim and bleak as the fate of women” (page 333). He un-isolates himself from using just one argument and instead produces a convincing emotional argument by using a broad choice of personal references and historical evidence. Sanders uses storytelling
Andrew Jackson was the seventh president of the United States. Andrew Jackson was known for fighting against the bank, creating the Indian removal act, and stopping the nullification crisis. These things made him a strong leader, and created peace and stability. He, unlike most other presidents was the “Man of the people” and was on their side more than the rich and educated. Andrew Jackson supported democracy well.
A President’s job is one of the most difficult to accomplish successfully because you must make the correct decisions and win the favor of the American people. In 2012 President Obama gave his presidential acceptance speech and changed the views of Americans by showing that he was a hard working individual and that he would try his best as President once again. President Obama’s acceptance speech showed the American people that he was grateful for this chance he won and that he will try to make America great once again and how democracy and politics is not just for the privileged individuals but for everyone in America. President Obama, during his speech, uses many rhetorical devices to appeal to the common American and uses select phrases in his introduction and conclusion to persuade the American people that he is one of them and that he is a hard working President who will try his best in the future and make America better than it ever was. Throughout the speech, President Obama’s use of rhetorical devices make the speaker feel a powerful emotional connection and feel that the president is one of them.
