His is probably most remembered for his brazen way of getting things done in the White House, but as the 26th president of The United States, Roosevelt should be credited for many of his achievements that we are still appreciating today. In 1901 Vice President Theodore Roosevelt took over as President after William McKinley was assassinated. The country had many opportunities ahead but was in need of some changes that the American people were all too ready for. Roosevelt was brought up in a well to do family and had was Harvard educated. But he was known to be a down to earth man that understood the needs of the people.
But after this was done President Wilson was urged back home to serious hostility. Directed by Lodge, the irreconcilables and the Battalion of Death destined the treaty and it's envisioned foreign entanglements, particularly with France. So the effect of all these would be that America would be forced to help fight another German invasion [DA]. Every thing wasn't all dandy when introducing the treaty either. Once the Treaty of Versailles was introduced to the community many liberals were not pleased with what it contained and covered.

Many people believe that this was a man who inflicted pain on many and had no good intentions other than to create dilemmas for the world. Yet in the end Adolf Hitler was a man who taught the world many lessons. He showed everyone that being united as countries wasn’t enough we needed to come together as a whole because this would be the only way that we would be able to overcome any struggles ahead.
In Alan Axelrod’s interpretation of Roosevelt’s first inaugural address, he recognized the main things that Roosevelt was trying to make immensely clear. America at that time needed to hear the certain words spoken by Roosevelt and he gave them just what the people wanted. Axelrod digs deep into the speech, but also focuses mainly on the simple, yet powerful messages that needed to be discussed. This historical research study showed well explanations and interpretations, displayed facts and opinions about the document, and gave an excerpt of the given historical document. I agree with Alan Axelrod’s interpretation of Roosevelt’s first inaugural address as the main points he made valid that I also agree with were that the only thing to fear is fear itself, how Roosevelt overcame his disability, and how FDR did not sugarcoat reality.
I agree with the author’s description because he explained the purpose of the New Deal and outlines the programs related to this plan. A lot of programs like Social Security Act and Tennessee Valley Authority can be found in this book. For the U.S. involvement in the World War II, the author demonstrates how Roosevelt established diplomatic relations with other nations and cooperated with the Allies to defeat their common enemies. I would say the author did a great job to describe the story of this war because he explains the reasons that contributed to the U.S. declaration of war. The book shows me how the president carried the nation through this difficult time.
These authors touch on so many different topics for their reasons to writing. Their ideals are very much different, but their end results are the same, words on paper for people to read. Both authors made very descriptive points to how their minds wander on and off their writings while trying to write. They both often were writing about what they didn’t want to write about before they actually wrote what they wanted too. In George Orwell’s case, he wrote many things when he was young the he himself would laugh at today, or felt was unprofessional the but if he hadn’t done so he would not of been the writer he became.
Rhetorical Analysis of President Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor Speech The Pearl Harbor address to the nation is probably one of the most famous speeches made throughout time. In this essay I will evaluate the rhetorical effectiveness of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's famous speech and show that his speech is a successful argument for the United States of America. I will focus on the speaker's credibility, all the different appeals made throughout the speech, as well as the purpose and the audience of the speech. Also, I will discuss whether or not there are any logical fallacies that may have weakened his speech. President Roosevelt does a few specific things to be able to establish his credibility as a speaker.
In Barack Obama’s “Address to the People of Berlin,” the former senator calls to action for countries to unite, by using the rhetorical methods of pathos and ethos. Obama’s establishes his ethos through American values, and foreign traditions; along side Obama’s pathos gives an essence of humor, building bridges, and sustaining his descriptive information, while these rhetorical devises work pieces of them hinder his argument. To begin with, Obama establishes his various types of ethos throughout his entire speech. Looking at Obama’s credibility from the United States perspective he is a senator and a candidate for Presidency. People who are elected as senators and possibly President, exhibit themselves as intelligent and authoritative.
Given the state of the world at the time of his inauguration, the decision to rely so heavily on pathos and ethos was a wise one which got the job done. His use of the rhetoric triangle effectively conveys Kennedy’s plan for America to not only her citizens, but to the world.
