Rhetorical Analysis In April 30, 1789, President George Washington gave his inaugural address in Wall Street, New York. Beginning with the words, "...summoned by my country whose voice I can never hear but with veneration and love..." Washington uses personification as he describes the American people that called out for him for his help and his being in office as the whole country with nothing but positivity. The country had just voted for him, not to mention the 69 presidential electors. As he channels the people 's emotions through his address, Washington continues with the words, "..a retreat a retreat which I had chosen with the fondest predilection, and, in my flattering hopes, with an immutable decision, as the asylum of my declining years--a retreat which was rendered every day more necessary as well as more dear to me by the addition of habit to inclination..", Washington then proves repetition is in order, as he uses the word "retreat" more than once and supports it with backup for a deeper understanding to signify how he heard the American
He states that he plans to attend university and ultimately become a legitimate politician. His father, Don Vito Corleone, supports his decision to live his life in the legitimate world, but is upset that Michael had not consulted him before re-entering college.

Right now I’m working for a Senate candidate, Admiral Joe Sestak, whose goal is to gain the trust of American voters, as well as restoring the American dream. The American dream is a theme of the book from the very first few pages. Kennedy’s family on both his father’s and his mother’s sides trace their roots to Irish immigrants who came to America for a better life. Most of the time when people talk about the “American dream,” they don’t know that they’re talking about. Both sides of the aisle use it at irrelevant times, when it’s buzzword nothing crap.
Ladies and Gentlemen it’s around this time every four years that we witness the inauguration of a new president. Our witnessing of this inauguration marks another 4 years that the principles upon which this country was built, still stand. It signifies that the freedom our founding fathers fought for over 200 years ago still matters today. And we, as a country, have to continue to fight for these Rights and freedoms so that future generations of Americans can continue to pursue the American dream. Many countries look at us and see a powerful nation that is the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Sanchez now a Gardner, meets his wife to be Maria, a domestic care taker; soon after marries; starts a family, then while she's pregnant with two of her children during the depression period, the United States government rounds up Mexican families regardless to whether they were citizens or not including Mrs. Sanchez and her two children. However, Mrs. Sanchez a legal citizen refused to be stopped from returning to the United States and eventually, makes her way back to her family. The Great Depression period was a very hostile moment towards immigrants in American history, a time when jobs were scarce and the economy was weak. Trickledown economics and a work shortage is what I believed triggered the hostile xenophobic response. Fast forward to the 1950s, the oldest daughter marries, Toni the youngest daughter becomes a nun, Memo the favorite son becomes a successful attorney, however, he experiences an embarrassing moment when his Caucasian companion brings her parents to his parent's house; obviously, Memo had no trouble assimilating with American culture, nor does he have a problem with the idea of intermarrying with Caucasians.

“Nobody cares how tough your upbringing was. Nobody cares if you suffered some discrimination. And moreover, you have to remember that whatever you 've gone through, it pales in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured - and they overcame them.” (Obama 6) In the speech Obama had presented at the graduation class of 2013 at Morehouse College, he wants them to remember their struggles and be able to overcome them to do what is right.

I Have a Dream’s Rhetoric A momentous day in history is exalted by the enthralling speech and resonating imagery of a man whom wanted to make a difference. Just over 100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation was implemented, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a very riveting speech to over 250,000 Americans during the March on Washington, the nation’s largest demonstration of peaceful protest. With peace typically comes logic of which King very much emanated from his speech. With powerful rhetoric, King captivated an entire crowd and subsequently the entire nation with emphasizing while being freed from the travesty that was slavery people of color are still placed in chains by society’s gruesome yet commonplace demarcations. Deluged with remarkable linguistics, King’s rhetoric wholly epiphanized and unified a country that had been stricken with unrest by war and hate and thus became the epitome of the March on Washington and the summation of the Civil Rights Movement Summarized Speech The speech encapsulates the desire to remain equal among the exalted American people, those of White color.
The 35th American President, John F. Kennedy, in his inaugural address, which he delivered after he just won the president seat, reclaimed his purpose as a successful and competent leader.

He used repetition and parallelism as his rhetorical strategies in order to convey to his audience, which includes both Americans and international people, the idea that America needs them to create a peaceful world in a nuclear age. After emphasizing the importance of freedom to America, JFK demonstrated his friendly attitude by using repetition to list his position toward some large or important organizations in the
The prominent strategy used by the campaign committee is the use of an ideal setting for Cruz’s announcement for candidacy. Ted Cruz’s kick off for his campaign was strategically scheduled at Liberty University to win the support of evangelical voters, which “made up almost 50% of the primary vote in the 2012 presidential cycle.”  However, according to the Washington Post, Liberty University has a policy that Convocation is mandatory for students living on campus at risk of a $10 charge for failing to attend.  According to students at Liberty, American Flags were offered to each student as they entered the Vines Center where the announcement was held. The American flags served as a blurred line between patriotism and support for Ted Cruz. When a student asked to be excused and not be forced into apparent political association, they were sternly reminded of school policy.
