It showed how campaigns ruin an individual’s ability to continue to do what is right and not deviate off their set principles in life. Tracy Flick with the tearing down of the posters, and Jack Stanton with the information about his opponent. Both are acts not within their character, and one cause of this change may have been the campaign. In Bulworth, Jay Bulworth is a very unique candidate, who has a huge exaggeration of a change in the film. Any individual who wants to be reelected wants to run just as great, or even greater of a campaign to win the election as they once did.
He also argues that by providing room for debate after epideictic dialogue, such as in Newtown, societies can advance with reason-based action on major issues. Some theoretical concepts Frank used in conducting these arguments are concepts of restrictive speeches which offer thoughtful reflection and persuasive speeches which lead to taking effective action. Frank supports his initial argument by analyzing the Tucson and Newtown eulogies. The speech Obama gave in Tucson avoided debate on gun control. Obama mentioned that changes might need to take place but her did not emphasize on what.
He also used ethos by appealing to their emotion, after a well written speech about his goals he used this quote to get the American people working and helping America become a flourishing country. In the very next sentence he says, “My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man,” because Kenned knows his audience he said this to establish respect for other countries and appeal to their ethos and make them want to comply to what America says so the whole world can be happy and prosperous. In conclusion President John F. Kennedy used many different rhetorical strategies to get his point across in a speech that was shorter than most Presidents Inaugural Address’s. This shows that Kennedy knew what he was doing during the
In “The Bernie Bomb” by Kimberley Strassel, critical, mocking tones emphasize Strassel’s feelings towards Bernie Sanders’ inability to become the President of the United States. Bernie Sanders gave quite a performance at the first Democratic debate of the year. Strassel shares her thoughts on the nature of his responses to important issues during the debate by concluding that his followers should regret making donations to his campaign seeing that he really is not in it to win. Her witty critiques indicate her strong feelings that donating to Sanders’ campaign in hopes that he will become President, is truly not worth the money. Strassel’s diction heightens the uncertainty and unprofessional manner behind Sanders’ attempt at trying to be elected as President, which leads his supporters to doubt their contribution to his campaign.
Yes, it was still Republican vs Democrat, the timetable was still the same, and there was a huge emphasis on ground game, but so much was different. Balz sees the backdrop leading up to the election as having left a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth. Democrats and Republicans alike saw Washington as a swamp of bickering and gridlock, they saw an economy that wasn’t working for them, and they blamed each other. On top of this, Democrats were disappointed in Obama and Republicans were dissatisfied with Romney. Along with this came shifting demographics and new forces including super PACs, social media, technology, and the importance of polls and
In the spring of 1868, America was focused on Congress to see if the President was going to be removed from office. Individuals were impeached and removed from office before, however, President Andrew Johnson was the first president to be impeached. Many have regarded Johnson as one of the worst presidents in the history of the United States because of his racism, stubbornness, disastrous Reconstruction policies, and his impeachment trial. Johnson’s impeachment would be the defining point of his presidency and his legacy. This raises the numerous questions such as why was Johnson put on trial; what made Republicans hell-bent on impeaching him; and was Andrew Johnson’s impeachment justified.
Mr. O’Malley, a lifelong Democrat and onetime chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, seemed comfortable playing the insurgent as he took the stage. He urged Democrats to draw a sharp contrast with the discourse among the Republican presidential candidates. “Silence and complacency in the face of hate is not an honorable option,” he said, alluding to Donald J. Trump’s divisive remarks about immigration and women. “We must stand before the American people and show them we have a better way.” Mr. O’Malley pointed out that the New Hampshire debate, the only one to be held before that state’s primary, was set for a weekend in December, when many people will be distracted with Christmas shopping and family obligations. (“At home we would call that too cute by half,” he told reporters after his speech.)
And this person would be Donald Trump. Not to mention the fact that I surely expect him to surround himself with capable, experienced, down-to-earth yet well-informed officials who will advocate for common-sense progress and concrete, realistic goals. I was planning to finish my rambling today with a brilliant affirmation I heard the other day on TV, comparing some outstanding American historic figures such as, let’s say, Harry Truman, who rebuild a demised Europe after WWII, or even Reagan, who helped destroy the “good communist” myth, to a Barack Obama whose most palpable legacy is the creation of “transgender bathrooms.” But, unfortunately, I failed to write it down at the time and could not find it later — as you all know, an unforgivable sin for any attentive chronicler that deserves this name. And for that I hope you’ll accept my sincere
To conclude his speech, the President mentions self-guilt on the part of the country on how they had not displayed the “sense of business responsibility” that they should have, a rhetorical strategy that approximates the audience to the government. His final sentence is an allusion to his inaugural address, another point in which JFK creates an extra layer of attachment to his listener. The previously mentioned ‘alternate reality’ is used once again but primarily for pathos. He mentions the possibilities of the way that science could be advancing efficiency,“In short, at a time where we could be exploring how more efficiency (...) could be obtained,” he proposes and
Like a strategy straight out of Sun Tzu 's Art Of War, Hillary Clinton is using Donald Trump 's own party against him in a brutal new campaign ad that shows even the majority of Republicans find Trump distasteful and potentially disastrous for America. This week, Donald Trump became the GOP 's presumptive presidential nominee after an embarrassing thrashing in Indiana finally caused Evangelical nut-bar Ted Cruz to accept defeat and drop out of the race, followed shortly by Ohio Governor John Kasich. With Trump the last man standing on the Republican ticket, and Clinton being the odds-on favorite for the Democrats, things are about to get real nasty along the campaign trail as both candidates gear up for the general election.
