A writer need as many facts on a story as possible to convey the proper and accurate message to the reader, this allow them to know what is going on in the world around them. gave very good detail about Obama running a positive campaign for the 2012. I believe the story was credible, being that it came from an interview with Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod. They gave good facts in the article that was provided. They took on the idea and put the negative and positive of both democrats and republicans. They showed a percentage of how each candidate faired when it came to advertising the truth. Not much examples of positive that Obama has accomplished was put on the article, but it was enough to make a compelling argument. The question of ‘How do we know that he has been running positive ad’s’ was asked, if it wasn’t advertised as much. The editor of the article stated that the positive ads were released only in the battle ground states, such as Florida, North Carolina, etc…. According to the ad, in these states national big wigs cannot see them, such as Bob Schieffer. The statement made by Axelrod seemed a bit opinionated It also seemed that they paid more attention to the number of ads given since the campaign began......

...number is increasing each and every year due to the fact that our economy has been in a slump recently, and because our nation has spent a majority of our federal funding to support warfare, our government had to cut back on allot of public programs. With the lack of money in circulation, many business owners have had to cut back on wages as well as their employees. Majority of uninsured people state that they do not have health insurance simply because they just cannot afford it. In an attempt to create a solution, President Barrack Obama came up with a universal healthcare program called the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, also known as Obamacare. In this paper, key points that will be discussed are how the program works, its pros and cons, if it raises any issues with federalism and if the program is actually helping our nation’s healthcare crisis . President Barrack Obama has made it clear that when it comes to healthcare, everyone should have coverage. The Obamacare plan lists a number of provisions that will go into effect over the next ten years, and is estimated to cost our nation $940 billion. Its long term goal is to reduce our nation’s by 1.2 trillion dollars if all goes as planned.

...Tara Rose Professor Lewis EN 101 November 18, 2008 McCain’s and Obama’s Views on No Child Left Behind Act “Change.” Change has been a word brought up often in this election. Obama promises to bring “change” to America. How are we going to change our education system? How do the candidates plan to change the education system? In 2001, President George Bush, reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, with his new piece of legislation, The No Child Left Behind Act. This was the largest reform of federal education policy in any generation. However, many believe this Act had little or no impact on Americans. Nevertheless, both candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, plan to keep the act intact but with their own revisions, and both parties stress the importance of every child receiving what they call a “world-class education. (Internation Reading Association: Reading Today: McCain vs. Obama)McCain’s key concept in changing the No Child Left Behind Act, is giving parents and their children the choice of any school through charter schools, vouchers, or tax credits for private schools, while Obama’s main focus is recruiting new teachers and paying them higher salaries; I believe Obama’s plan to reform the No Child Left Behind Act is a more productive plan, and that he has a better approach to reforming the No Child Left Behind Act. The No Child Left Behind Act, NCLB, was introduced on January 23, 2001, immediately after George Bush stepped into office. This......

...Barack Obama Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States —becoming the first African American to serve in that office —on January 20, 2009. The son of a white American mother and a black Kenyan father, Obama grew up in Hawaii. Leaving the state to attend college, he earned degrees from Columbia University and Harvard Law School. Obama worked as a community organizer in Chicago, where he met and married Michelle LaVaughn Robinson in 1992. Their two daughters, Malia Ann and Natasha (Sasha) were born in 1998 and 2001, respectively. Obama was elected to the Illinois state senate in 1996 and served there for eight years. In 2004, he was elected by a record majority to the U.S. Senate from Illinois and, in February 2007, announced his candidacy for President. After winning a closely-fought contest against New York Senator and former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic nomination, Obama handily defeated Senator John McCain of Arizona, the Republican nominee for President, in the general election. When President Obama took office, he faced very significant challenges. The economy was officially in a recession, and the outgoing administration of George W. Bush had begun to implement a controversial "bail-out" package to try to help struggling financial institutions. In foreign affairs, the United States still had troops deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and warfare had broken out between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, illustrating......

...CASE: M-321 DATE: 8/27/09 OBAMA AND THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY In early 2007, Barack Obama was a little-known senator running for president against Democratic nominee and household name, Hilary Clinton. But on November 4, 2008, Obama made history as the first African American to win the election against Republican candidate, John McCain, thus becoming the 44th president of the United States. Obama won by a margin of nearly 200 electoral votes and 8.5 million popular votes. Many factors contributed to his success, but a major one was the way Obama and his Chicago-based campaign team used social media and technology as an integral part of their campaign strategy, not only to raise money, but also more importantly, to develop a groundswell of empowered volunteers who felt that they could make a difference. Michael Malbin, executive director of the Campaign Finance Institute said: “No other candidate has ever integrated the full picture the way he [Obama] has, that‟s what‟s really new about his campaign.”1 Edelman Research analysts said that Obama won by “…converting everyday people into engaged and empowered volunteers, donors and advocates through social networks, e-mail advocacy, text messaging and online video. The campaign‟s proclivity to online advocacy is a major reason for his victory”2 (Exhibit 1). In terms of the numbers, externally, Obama‟s campaign was able to garner 5 million supporters on 15 different social networks ranging from Facebook to......

Barrack Obama Addresses the Schools

...Asbjørn Møller 3.u - Grenaa Gymnasium DATE \@ "d. MMM y" 21. nov. 2014 Opgave B Prepared remarks of Barack Obama: Back to School Event Prepared remarks of Barack Obama: Back to School Event The text ‘Prepared remarks of Barack Obama: Back to School Event, are the words spoken by the United States’ President Barack Obama. The Speech was given in 2009 at Wakefield High School in Virginia. It works as a motivational speech for every single American who will be starting his school after that years''s school holiday. As President Barack Obama is speaking for the schools all over America, he’s using very direct speech, with a lack of metaphors, as it would probably do more harm than good. “So I know some of you are still adjusting to being back to school. But I’m here today because I have something important to discuss with you.”(P. 7, l. 17) It’s important to keep in mind, that Obama is speaking to pupils from smaller grades. Actually pupils who just started school or kindergarten. Therefore it needs to be simple, so it’s possible for everybody to understand. When a president suddenly shows his face on the TV screen of every school in the country, that president has to do an effort to be taken seriously. And to show the viewers that he can be trusted. He does that in various ways: “Hello everyone - how’s everybody doing today?” (p. 7, l. 1), in this example he’s speaking as if he was talking directly to the listener. This creates Ethos, as he’s appealing to the......

This is a discussion whit in the text, not out of the text, doing this trough quotation, not through your own knowledge, stay with in the text.

Barrack Obama

.... ‘A More Perfect Union’ is a speech that was delivered by the then US Senator for Chicago, Barack Hussein Obama, in response to criticism and condemnation that was hurled at him due to his association with Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Reverend Wright had come under attack from many corners of American society due to what people termed as ‘anti-American’ sentiments that Reverend Wright shared with his congregants, the most prominent of them being Senator Obama. (Obama, B. 2008) Obama’s speech will give insight on rhetorical appeal, pattern of development, context, and intended audience to educate it’s reader.. Senator Obama, who was then running for presidential nomination by the Democratic Party, was accused of tolerating anti-American sentiments. People, politicians and academics wondered how he could put up with such sentiments yet he hoped to lead a society as diverse ethnically and racially as America. This speech, ‘A More Perfect Union’, was Senator Obama’s response to these accusations. The speech has been hailed by many people as being the one that won him not only the Democratic Party nomination but also the U.S Presidency. For instance, the speech played a role in prompting New Mexico governor Bill Richardson to back Mr. Obama for the Democratic nomination. Governor Richardson was courted by both Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton as he was America’s only Latino governor and as such, whoever he supported may have won most of the Latino votes. Many people, including......

...But times have changed, and today most Americans believe that the gun law needs to be stricter. Therefore it can be difficult to understand why nothing happens when the majority of the US population supports stricter gun laws. So why is it that the law cannot be changed? And what can the politicians do to end this nightmare? Barack Obama is trying to highlight this issue in his newest speech on gun violence – “Remarks by the President on Common-Sense Gun Safety Reform” – that he presented at the White House Press Conference on the 5th of January 2016. This paper analyses Obama’s speech. The analysis will focus on the communicative and rhetorical devices in the speech. The sender of the speech is Barack Obama, the current president in the USA. He is representing his own party, the Democrats. Obama is speaking for all Americans and against the gun lobbyists. The speech is built on the foundation of all the gun tragedies, which have happened over the last years, and therefore makes use of al lot of pathos. He expresses his compassion for all the people who have been victims of gun violence and uses concrete examples of victims he has known. Obama presents four solutions to the problem of gun violence and mass shootings. Number 1 “…make the background check system more efficient” and “…hire more folks to process applications faster…” He wants to use more resources on the background checking system and by that make sure that not everybody can buy a gun, as for example a......
