Reagan’s rhetorical style was fundamental in defining him as a president. In fact, many believe that his speech at the Brandenburg Gate was directly responsible for the collapse of communism. To determine if this is so, it is essential to critically examine his rhetorical strategies and understand who Regan was as a person. Ronald Regan was born in Tampico, Illinois, on February 6, 1911 to Nelle and Jack Regan, a low-income Roman Catholic family. Yet despite his family’s lack of prominence, he went on to do quite a bit in his early life; Regan graduate from Eureka College in 1932, worked as a sports announcer on several regional radio stations, and eventually moved to Los Angeles, California in 1937 to become a professional actor.
He promised that the government would intervene in the economy to provide relief for the great depression, he proposed a ‘new deal’ that would give millions of Americans jobs and create a more stable US economy. “Roosevelt faced the greatest crisis in America since the Civil War.” (Franklin D. Roosevelt Biography). In the beginning of his presidency, he began to make good on his promises, he created many agencies and associations to help get the economy under control and to help lower the unemployment rate. As the economy was stabilizing and the unemployment rates and GDP were beginning to rise back up to normal levels, he fell under criticism for putting too much power in the government’s hands for controlling the economy. He was also accused of putting the nation into debt and not managing the national budget very well.

First impressions, positive or negative, can influence long term relations. However, for many interviewed in this report, those opinions where "negative" (Driscoll 75). The bombings held great significance during this time period because it was the first time that American society was introduced to foreign terrorist operatives and their malicious acts of horror. Up until this incident, the largest terrorist attack suffered on U.S. soil was the Oklahoma City bombings carried out by homegrown terrorist Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City Bombing 20 Years Later). Now that the American public had witnessed an attack directed specifically at the U.S. government on foreign territory, attention was brought to the encroaching presence of America on the world stage, reminiscent of the USSR in Eastern Europe.

From email scandals to failure to pay federal taxes for almost two decades, Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has had me and many Americans in quite a shock, creating a gossip worthy presidential election like no one has ever seen in American history. For me, this election has been a mix of laughter and fear. The shots that Clinton and Trump have taken at each other have been hysterical, especially during the first presidential debate. It’s all fun and games until reality hits me and I have to remind myself “these are your choices for presidents, stupid.” At the end of the day, one of these individuals will be my president and by this being my

“There is nothing I love as much as a good fight.” an interesting thought to be uttered from a president like that of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR had to push and fight through a lot, not a surprise coming from someone who not only looked up to but was related to Theodore Roosevelt. I believe Franklin Roosevelt to be the greatest president we have ever had, taking on the responsibilities of presidency for 12 years through the Great Depression and World War II, fighting disease the entire time. Roosevelt battled with polio through his entire presidency until it killed him shortly after being elected for a fourth term, the only president to achieve such a feat.
