He is by many considered the greatest president of all time. His New Deal policies changed the country that was suffering from the Great Depression. The deal helped the struggling American people in so many areas, including jobs for the many unemployed people. He brought relief, recovery, and reform to a country that desperately needed it. As the speech was held when FDR was nearing the end of his fourth and final term as president, the popularity he gained from his difficult times as the president established a trustworthy character, thus giving him great ethos.
After the decisive defeat of Germany in World War II, the country had divided into East and West Germany during the Cold War. East and West Germany soon became the center of growing political tension between the two superb superpowers, the United States and the USSR. In June of 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the united states, stepped into the West Berlin and deliberately delivered his memorable “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech near the Berlin Wall. Meanwhile, his compelling speech aroused a tremendous acclamation of the immense crowd which overwhelmed the president. The speech was considered one of the best speeches of the world because it was inundated with both rhetorical appeals and devices throughout the entire speech.
Every candidate puts an enormous amount of effort into influencing voters but most people might think it is not simple and rather impossible to persuade voters with a positive message. But Barack Obama may have actually succeeded with his persuasion, mostly by speaking with sincerity and hope. He has pursued the political strategy of hopefulness for over eight years that it feels almost authentic. What likely impressed the audience was his advanced use of metaphor. It is natural to talk about politics by means of dozens of common metaphors but usually we do not even realise how many metaphors appear in speeches.
John F. Kennedy, in his inaugural address demonstrates great uses of many different rhetorical strategies to make his address very informal and effective to the American people. Kennedy’s purpose of this text was to get his goals across to the American people for his presidency and unite the people to help achieve a common goal. President John F. Kennedy starts his speech by listing former Presidents and other political members and finishes with fellow citizens. This implies his respect for his job and the respect he has for the American citizens. The people he list have different political views which shows how he can work with people to accomplish goals no matter what party they are in.
The speech was given in front of many important people in our society at the time, such as President Clinton, it also said some very powerful things about indifference and the dangers of it. Wiesel gave his speech in front of many different powerful people in our country at the time. This fact is important because these were the people that could voice an opinion on the matter and make a difference in our country. These are the people that had a platform to make a change, and are able to inform the public. My second reason is that it proved some very good points about indifference and how it is bad.
Nevertheless, Nixon managed to return to politics even after such a major scandal and establish himself as an author, analyst and commentator. President Clinton even acknowledged Nixon’s “wise counsel” on foreign policy. Nixon remained as a politician who would use any methods he could to be competitive and advance his career (Wicker). Surprisingly, it has been noted by many scholars that the public has become desensitized to Watergate. In a report released by a Democratic and Republican pollster, “only 18 percent of Americans surveyed believed that Watergate was worse than other scandals of the last quarter-century” (Polman).
There is a lot I have heard of Donald J Trump especially as a leader of a successful business firm. Recently have known much more about him as the President of the USA. There are a few consistent themes that have compelled me to choose him as my model leader. One of such is that in most of his business dealings, Donald Trump has been able to make good decisions, and if we put it in his own terms ‘a deal maker’. Irrespective of the recent criticisms on him in his new position as the President of the USA, in the business world he is known for taking calculated risks that is one of his outstanding characteristic that is beyond the ken of ordinary businessmen.
While this unstoppable force of equality has helped American society, its presence also presents many dangers. As politics are extended from aristocrats to the majority, the end is brought to differences in status, noble ranks, and titles, and hereditary privileges. In simple terms, where there is democracy, there is equality. In America, people are becoming more equal in wealth, education, and culture. This advance is partially brought on by modernization, many institutions and inventions have played a part in developing and promoting equality and democracy.
.1 Considering the Theories: Media Malaise and Mobilization At the root of the growing divide between the large media networks and their audience’s increasingly negative opinion of them as well as this relationships’ impact on everyday politics lies the theory of media malaise versus mobilization. This theory is particularly interesting to explore in the case of the Sanders campaign, a campaign or movement—as Sanders himself likes to call it— that prided itself on having a grassroots structure and funding, thus relying on civic engagement and volunteers to keep the campaign afloat. After all but eliminating Hillary Clinton’s 60 point lead in the polls (Queally “Once Ahead”), this grassroots campaign strategy proved to be very effective as
