Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson were both American presidents in the 20th century. Though they represented different political parties, Republican and Democratic accordingly, and expressed different views on current problems, they still served their country's best interests. They worked in relatively similar times and had to deal with analogous problems that is why it is noteworthy to compare their policies. They behaved very similarly in office as they shared the view on the necessity of economic growth and changes to black people's civil rights, but their military policies differ as Eisenhower managed to keep out of shooting war while Johnson had to deal with it.

In the episode of Independence Adam witnesses the bloody battle of Lexington and Concord and reports back to Philadelphia. Over in Philadelphia Adams battles with delegates debating the pros and cons of independence. Adam declares that there is no other way other than to break off and declare independence against Great Britain.

When the Continental Army was created in 1775, George Washington was nominated commander in-chief by Adams.
Have you ever wondered what the country would look like if President Polk decided to not start a war with Mexico? President James Polk, who favored the Manifest Destiny, would choose to take another route. In fact, he might focus on a negotiation with the Mexican government, in which he would offer the protection from European countries, the help in building up a stable government, and the establishment of a strong relationship between two countries in exchange for the annexation of Texas and the area of California and New Mexico.
“Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.” Its quite ironic how former pres. Ronald Reagan made this statement when he was encouraging this “problem.” The main duty of the president of the United States is to make decisions that cater to the needs of the public and the nation. Throughout Reagan’s presidency he did not make the needs of the common people a priority. Through Reaganomics and his unrelenting actions to dispose of worker’s unions, it is evident that Reagan was a puppet, funded and controlled, by big corporations who had no interest in the wealth of the common people.
Not every anti-Communist person was caught in the fallacious McCarthyism, however, Harry Truman, himself a very open anti-Communist, opposed anti-Communist legislation and vetoed the Internal Security Act in 1950. In his veto message, he calls into question the required registration of ‘Communist front organizations’, writing, “This provision could easily be used to classify as a Communist-front organization any organization which is advocating a single policy or objective which is also being urged by the Communist Party” (181). In this message, Truman warns against the use of a hasty generalization fallacy, one which would indeed eventually be used. However, others did not see the threat of such fallacies and his veto was overridden by a large
It would be highly unpredicted that by the end of September 26, 1960, an unknown senator from Massachusetts would become a star. The young, Catholic senator was John F. Kennedy. It is now common knowledge that without the nation’s first televised debate that Kennedy would have never became president. But
George Washington and it's community will provide be with the tools and the opportunity to continue to actualize my capabilities as an academic and as a veteran leader. As I studied which colleges and universities I was planning on applying to, I couldn't help but reflect on the tough decision
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Junior’s, speech at his inaugural address in 1961 is undeniably a masterpiece of the persuasive arts. Although the speech is short as such speeches go, and although its main persuasive device is pathos alone, the masterful skill with which Kennedy’s speech is written makes it one of the most moving and effective political speeches to date. Kennedy’s vivid use of diction and metaphor, as well as his extremely memorable syntax, are particularly strong and successful.
When John F. Kennedy became president in 1961, he agreed with the foreign policy of the Truman Doctrine. This meant that the United States would provide support to any nation under the threat of Communism. This policy was significant in relation to Vietnam. The Domino Theory was one which had

Reading chapter 3, Sonja Foss, outlines four weaknesses of the neo-Aristotelian method of rhetorical criticism. She writes that this method assumes that the primary role of a rhetorical critic is that of a teacher or practitioner, this method overemphasizes the importance of the immediate, short-term effects of the selected artifact, this method overemphasizes the importance of rational appeals, and this method encourages an overly mechanical approach to criticism, in which critical concepts are applied indiscriminately to all rhetorical artifacts in cookie-cutter fashion. From analyzing Forbes Hill’s essay “Conventional Wisdom—Traditional Form: The President’s Message of November 3, 1969,” which neo-aristotelian Criticism can be found here.
