By the use of rhetorical skill, including analogy, strong emotional appeals, and his position of power, President Reagan manages to convince America that despite the tragedy the benefits of keeping a space exploration program greatly outweigh the losses. The first rhetorical skill that Reagan uses is ethos. In the very first sentence he implies his status and authority by stating, “I'd planned to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union, but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans.” By showing us his power as President of the United States (the
Nixon wanted to end the war just like every other American. He had many plans for this war and one of them was called Vietnamization. Vietnamization was a policy that would replace U.S. troops with South Vietnamese troops and supply them with supplies and weapons (Rubel 182). It was a way to retreat U.S. troops and end involvement in the war. Even though he ended involvement in the Vietnam War by withdrawing U.S. troops, he decided to bomb enemy forces in Cambodia (Lillegard 71).
Although Nixon attempted to cover up his ties to the break in, it eventually came out that he ordered it to be done. In 1974, former President Nixon resigned from office and Gerald Ford became the temporary president. One of the first executive orders that Ford did was pardon Nixon for his crimes against the United States. The entire scandal had, “driven a stake into the heart of traditional national politics.” (Farber, 27) This controversy was not only publicized nationally, but severely damaged the American people’s already withering relationship with their government. Foreign policy wise, Nixon, while still in office, began to follow Realpolitik, a policy that allowed him to create relationships with both the Soviet Union and China because it no longer required morality to be a considering factor.
He didn’t want to run an “imperial presidency” like that of Nixon and Johnson. The country desperately wanted the president to succeed, but he began with a few bold strikes. He pardoned Vietnam draft evaders, ended funding for the B-1 bomber planes, and pushed for a comprehensive consumer bill. His resistance to the traditional bill pushed by newly elected presidents was not received fondly by legislators he would later have to deal with. Carter proposed many successful bills but this was not quite enough to gain him a positive image.
During that presidency, he was most well known for participating in the war of 1812. When the British were impressing the American sailors, Madison helped pass the embargo act but when that did not help, He tried to talk to the British which a man named John Randolph said that talking to the French was a affective as "a shilling pamphlet hurled against eight hundred ships of war.” So talking did not help the situation so congress met to decide what to do. In Congress, a small group of the members called the war hawks tried to convince the members to go to war. This group slowly had an effect on the rest of the congress and so congress declared war on Britain. At the end of the war, America won which resulted in the British not impressing the Americas and also Madison receiving more fame for taking a good risk.
He guaranteed to unite the country once more. Nixon 's first remote goal was to consult to end of the Vietnam war. The war in Vietnam swelling made by the war London Johnson 's free spending on social projects, American divineness on the war, Jonson 's change enactment, and the gradually veering ways of life of the 1960s. (Commire 1994) The Budget and Impoundment Act of 1974 set new terms for presidential impoundments. The president would need to propose deferral, which would become effective unless either house, by straightforward determination, disliked his arrangement, in which case the assets would be spent.
Burgoyne retreated and attacked later and Arnold even after being told not to by General Gates took several key points and forced him to surrender. The social aspect was that Gates was jealous of Arnold and didn’t want him to take the glory so he could for himself. The political aspect was that through Arnold’s brilliant strategies he was able to outmaneuver Burgoyne’s tactics. The economical was there is one last British army standing between them and their independence and more land gained from their
He uses logos when he said that, he would support with George W. Bush claim about keeping the military strong and have freedom and not go with Kerry cause, he wants to weaken the military. Zell Miller doesn’t like the fact, that Senator Kerry was weak and only wanted to use military force only approved by the United Nations. Kerry was a war protestor and blamed our military, so that why he wanted to weaken the military by shut down some of the national security. But George W. Bush doesn’t want that to happen and either does Zell Miller that’s also why Zell Miller is on his side on the strength military instead going with Kerry.
He appointed a cabinet composed of Northerners and Southerners and hoped to keep peace between the country’s pro-slavery and anti-slavery people, but it created lots of tension. People were accusing James of being biased to the southern colony interests and slavery issue. Two days after being in office, the U.S. Supreme Court gave a document that stated, “The federal government had no power to regulate slavery in the territories and denied African Americans the rights of U.S. citizens.” He hoped that the document would resolve the slavery issue, but he, “reportedly pressured a Northern justice to vote with the Southern majority in the case.” Then, the southerners were contempt, but the northerners were protesting, which led to diversity. Each had complete different opinions, and it was just getting everybody upset. Buchanan made the Northerners even more angry by supporting the Lecompton Constitution, which would have allowed Kansas to become a slave state, but it was voted down and Kansas became a part of the Union.
He often opposed Hamiltons ideals and views but he did agree on a Federal Mint and a need for federal currency. As Jefferson he had several failures as President like establishing the Embargo Act on 1807 barring ships leaving ports or trading with Britain or France thinking he was protecting shippers and having the warring Napoleon and King George III realize to leave America Neutral to their war and stop pirating US ships to ships and soon resume trade again while putting 30,000 sailors out of work at bringing 103 million at its peak in exporting goods to zero when the the opposing countries had other locations they could get their resources from around the world. This Act backfired loosing two of it’s biggest trade partners and ruined his reputation as the enemy of centralized government and the champion of the common people. The biggest failure I noticed was he did not fight against slavery and continued to have slaves on his Virginia Plantation through out his lifetime even though it was DNA proven almost 200 years later he fathered children with his slave mistress Sally Hemmings rumored during his
John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s assassination was just because he attempted to end the Vietnam war , restructure the CIA. My counter argument is that it was unjust because after he was out of office, he stay focused on political issues. JFK’s assassination was just because he tried to end the Vietnam war. If this plan had been operated and successfully made it would have left the US in deep debt. Because of this the US would have withdrawn without victory.
Reagan also viewed the Iran Hostage Crisis as a huge embarrassment to the country and promised the people that this would not happen again (Brands 207). Ronald Reagan beat Carter by landslide, winning 44 states. He entered into his first term with a country that was very depressed and had no confidence. His goal was for America to restore its trust in itself (Cannon 263). He also came to the white house with an agenda.
Significantly, his disapproval rating climbed in direct relation to the fall in his approval rating. When people changed their minds about President Nixon they were skipping ambivalence and going straight to disapproval. As the 37th President he ended American Involvement in the war in Vietnam in 1973 and brought the troops back home. At the same time, he ended military draft. After the Vietnam War he visited the Soviet Union and he signed the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty, the first comprehensive and detailed nuclear weapons limitation pact between the two superpowers.
Richard Nixon was the 37th U.S President from January 20, 1969 through August 9, 1974 and during his term, President Nixon would become one of the most talked about administration. This was due to the Watergate scandal; this would heavily over shadow his other accomplishments and bring the White House under the microscope. Nixon would tap phones and record conversations of people when he would have meetings. He did end the war in Vietnam and improved our relationships with China and the USSR. One of his objections in the United States was to try and bridge the divide in our cities and try to heal the war weary people of our nation, because of all the disagreements over Vietnam.
David Kopel 's article on the 1966 gubernatorial election discussed the extremism issue. Reagan dealt with accusations from the Democrats of being extremist. Incumbent Pat Brown upon hearing of Reagan 's candidacy remarked “gleeful anticipation of beating this politically inexperienced, right-wing extremist and aging actor.” Accusations came from the Republican side, but the 11th Commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any other Republican,” kept accusations from being too loud. The 11th Commandment promoted unity within the Party. However, Reagan blocked these claims and any groups labeled as extremist.
