Ronald Reagan went from a simple shoe store owner to a student athlete and student body president to an actor to a politician and finally ended up as the Fortieth President of the United States. He stepped into the political spotlight in 1964 but before that he worked as an actor for Warner Bros. How exactly did Ronald Reagan shape our country into?

All of these things are things that Reagan felt passionate about and he held up his duty to our country as president Reagan influenced the country by his strong views in border protection and political views. He also influences us by his diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease, which he promoted awareness about.
Kennedy’s Inauguration Then & Now: A Comparative Analysis The inauguration of John F. Kennedy was and remains today a dynamic and emotional event which profoundly shaped America and its future. The inaugural speech itself is credited with ushering in an era of global change, rising from a divided America in the midst of real world issues surrounding the Cold War and other international tensions. A speech of American pride and glory as well as of slight threat and caution to those seeking to topple it, it demonstrates the vigor with which Kennedy’s presidency began. This vigor is mirrored in Eleanor Clift’s “Inside Kennedy’s Inauguration, 50 Years On”, which instead focuses on the happenings of the inauguration day. Clift sews details about
Most of these words happen to be negatively charged at the Steel Industries. However, in parts of his speech Kennedy talks about how certain groups in the nation are working to help the people of America. For example in line 92 Kennedy talks about the Department of Defense. He talks about what they’re doing to figure out why the prices of steel are rising so quickly and what needs to be done to protect the public interest. By using positive and negative words Kennedy is able to make his opinion clear.
Specifically, we can look at Ronald Reagan and how he rises to an occasion and unifies people while providing direction in a speech about the tragic “Challenger” event. My paper will use the Neo-Aristotelian criticism method, which explores the rhetorical situation and cannons of rhetoric. The rhetorical situation consists of four aspects of the speech. The first aspect is to
Thatcher uses repetition, strong diction, and ethos in order to illustrate what an influential president Ronald Reagan was. Thatcher uses repetition throughout the eulogy to immensely enforce Reagan’s accomplishments and the greatness in which he approached different situations. For example,in lines 30-36, Thatcher repeats the word “others” excessively to show the many doubts the world people had before his presidency, fearing that he would not be capable of leading a nation during times of crisis. Thatcher juxtaposes those fears and beliefs by listing the many times he proved them wrong and successfully handled the numerous problems during his presidency. Later in her speech she utilizes this tactic again by reiterating “he” through lines 59-64 in order to
In an eulogy to former President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, former prime minister of Great Britain, addresses a speech in honor of Reagan. Throughout the eulogy, Thatcher informs Americans all of the amazing work Reagan did during his presidency and how he is a great person.

For my speaker and speech analysis assignment, I chose JFK’s inaugural address speech. I chose this speech because I think he has an interesting story and with this speech, he inspired a great amount of optimism and patriotism in America. It is often considered one of our country’s most important speeches. In my analysis, I will be focusing on JFKs background, and many aspects of his speech including his delivery, organizational, persuasive and rhetorical techniques. According to the JFK Library, our 35th president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was the first Catholic president, the youngest man to be elected as president and also the present who died the youngest.
Therefore, President Kennedy claims that America is to uphold the very foundation of the nation not only within the country, but on a global scale. He does this by subtly comparing America to John Winthrop’s “City Upon a Hill” in the third paragraph of the piece and in the end where he states, “The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it - and the glow from that fire can truly light the world” (Kennedy 3). President Kennedy does this to show the citizens of America what they are capable of as well as to earn their trust after a close presidential election. Furthermore, Kennedy does this to unite the nations under a common cause. President Kennedy further illustrates America’s responsibility by using specific diction and syntax.
On a cold day in 1961, John F. Kennedy delivered a speech to the citizens and peoples of both America and the world. After the end of a close and competitive election, he used this speech not to celebrate his victory as president, but to unite the audience. He addresses the audience with a statement that would be remembered for years to come, as its call to duty is a powerful one. A strong appeal to ethics─ not only his ethics but our ethics as a country united through shared values─ and powerfully emotional and logical arguments are used to convince the audience to take a stand and make a difference. Additionally, he appeals to the rest of the world by referring to different areas and countries of the globe while also connecting all human beings together as one population.
If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.” Franklin D. Roosevelt stated this quote, it explains how one must try everything before assuming something. If all fails then there’s always something else to try. Never give up on trying and in his speech, The First Fireside Chat, he persuaded the people to try to give the government their trust when they had a solution to the country’s banking issues. In his speech, President Roosevelt uses the term Logos, which is one of the rhetoric terms that gives the audience proof or a reason to believe what is being said, in this statement, “it is issued early on adequate security -- and every good bank has an abundance of security.” to persuade the citizens of the national security every bank has so their values would be completely safe.
