For instance, “we want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt, that isn’t weakened by inequality, that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of global warming (pg 2). Obama incorporates major issues in his acceptance speech that he plans to tackle in his last term. He establishes his mood on acting right away towards positively changing the course of these major issues. Also, Obama’s use of language further develops his claims, for he uses a lot of we and us, which shows that everyone in the United States is one driving force. 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.
Donald Trump is usually thought of as a powerful speaker partly due to his arguments. In his speech, his points were clearly laid out and easy to grasp. One such argument that he uses is America’s current state in both economy and general state of being, as he clearly states when he says, “We 've made other countries
Obama’s use of repetition in his speech makes his praise of John Kerry more powerful and by using the same words in different contexts, he shows that his ideas are important and relevant to all people. For example, “It’s the hope of slaves sitting around a fire [...] the hope of immigrants setting out for distant shores; the hope of a young naval lieutenant [...] the hope of a millworker’s son [...] the hope of a skinny kid with a funny name [...].” In this passage, the repetition of “the hope” applied to descriptions of different situations conveys the idea that everyone needs hope, and that America is a country built on hope. Obama also uses anaphora to drill certain ideas into the audience’s minds. When he says “John Kerry believes [...] John Kerry believes [...] John Kerry believes [...] And John Kerry believes [...],” it creates the clear picture that John Kerry has many positive ideas to better the country, and therefore compels the
I used pathos because he used a very strong kind of voice and how America was all messed up and going downhill. But when basically when he gets into office he is trying to change all of that. Just like as he said in his speech “Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time.
Obama used anaphoras in his speech to persuade his audience that “we” are in this together. Furthermore, President Obama’s first inaugural speech contained patriotism, allusions, and anaphoras to appeal to the effect of pathos. His diction helps to persuade his audience that he is understanding and emotionally connected to the situation that America has been in and the importance of sticking to the ideas that our founding fathers have implemented thus far in America’s
Obama used his own stories to tell the hardships in the election and his better expectations to America. I think he used Ethos here because the president is best qualified to speak on this question. They didn 't start with much money or many endorsements. It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give five dollars and ten dollars and twenty dollars to this cause. It was built by people who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and less sleep.
He knew he could not repair what had been done, but he knew we could fight back. The speech focuses on the fact that these terrorist attacks were out of pure evil. Bush wanted to make sure that America, along with the rest of the world, still had a fight and a drive in them. He wanted us to feel safe and protected. As he continues on, the American people hear what he has done and what will be done to
President Obama’s “Statement on the Orlando, Florida Shooting” and President Trump’s “Remarks on Las Vegas Shooting” were the speeches that were analyzed. The purpose of these speeches were to call attention to the terrible massacres that occurred in the U.S. The devices found in the two speeches were allusion, anaphora, kairos, repetition, and metaphor. The two speeches contained similar devices, such as repetition and anaphora, however President Trump used metaphor and the persuasive appeal, Pathos, in order to get his point across and President Obama used allusion and kairos in order to get his point across. The purpose of President Obama’s speech was to acknowledge a shooting in a club in Orlando, Florida.
The speech accomplished what it was after because NASA got a man on the moon in 1969, but JFK never got to see the event. Even though he never saw the event, any speech can be compared to his “We Chose to go to the Moon” because every speech has a purpose and uses rhetorical components in some way that benefits the speaker. Pathos, ethos, and logos were used so that the audience gets the speaker what he/she wants. That was the same as what Kennedy did through his speech. At the end of the speech Kennedy again, talks about how people spent money on tobacco products instead of the space program.
