Roosevelt was a president of stature. These early measures displayed Roosevelt's strengths and weaknesses as an economic thinker. On the one hand, he showed that he was flexible, that he would act, and that he would use all his executive powers to secure congressional cooperation. Frequent press conferences, speeches, and fireside chats--and the extraordinary charisma that he displayed on all occasions--instilled a measure of confidence in the people and halted the terrifying slide of 1932 and 1933. These were important achievements that brought him and his party the gratitude of millions of Americans.
Barry Morris Goldwater was a businessman and five-term United States Senator from Arizona and the Republican Party's nominee for president in the 1964 election. “A Time for Choosing” was effective, because he gave personal examples to capture the audiences’ attention, and gave humor to a tough subject. The United States presidential election of 1964 was the 45th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 1964. Democratic candidate and incumbent President Lyndon B. Johnson had come to office less than a year earlier following the assassination of his predecessor, John F. Kennedy.
Before his term was finished, President Carter announced his candidacy for president in 1974. In July of 1976, he won the democratic nomination. He selected Senator Walter F. Mondale of Minnesota as his running mate. In November, President Carter succeeded by capturing 51 percent of the popular vote and 297 electoral votes. (History.com).
When Reagan took office in 1980, he had many hopes and dreams to turn America into a great nation, and get America back on track. He fulfilled his goals and dreams for America and is highly regarded still to this day. He left office with great shoes to fill, and is looked back on as a great American leader. During his two terms as president, Reagan has had many major accomplishments/events while in office, such as signing of the Economic Recovery Tax Act, the Iran-Contra scandal, and aiding the United States in winning the cold war. Ronald Reagan was born February 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois.
INTRODUCTION It is widely accepted that George Bush Snr. was forced to play out his presidency in the mighty shadow of Ronald Reagan. Reagan's charm and personality was one of his greatest strengths and, even now, is widely revered for his time as President. Bush was reportedly always conscious of people's expectations of him in view of his predecessor and this burden seemed to weigh heavily. Reagan's achievements in Washington were considerable, if not in number then in impact.
During Ronald Reagan’s time as President, the world viewed America through a completely different lens; our enemies feared us and our allies had never been more proud to stand with us. President Reagan was devoted to the future of the United States. He stimulated economic growth throughout the United States by strengthening the national defense, revitalizing the Republican party, and ending the worldwide Cold War. All of these artifacts are proof that Reagan was, indeed, a highly effective president. Reagan came to presidency with a straightforward and well-articulated domestic agenda.
Being able to provide people with faith throughout the great depression and hard times that would follow during his presidency, and uplift the country was just one of the traits that proved him to be a great leader. He brought hope to the people when he promised prompt, and vigorous action, he asserted in his Inaugural Address that, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" (The White House). The main drive of Roosevelt's administration was toward a balance of the economic interests for the American people. He believed that he should represent all the people equally. That being the farme... ... middle of paper ... ...as still a trait all leaders should have which is what made him such an admirable one.
Truman had many skills and knew what he was capable of doing in order to lead the country. Everything that he learned as a child and went through helped make the biggest decision, which turned out to help many Americans. If Truman didn’t drop the bomb the U.S would have been in a crisis. Truman was a good president for the time being left that was positioned for Franklin D. Roosevelt.

All though both speeches were successful, I believe that his First Inaugural Speech in 1933 was the better of the two. In this speech, Roosevelt not only took the blame off the American people, comforted them, provided specific information on what the United Stated needed to make a successful change, and most importantly took control and leadership over America,

Classical liberalism and classical conservatism are closely based as seen by Edmund Burke who was admired for his political philosophies from both classical liberalism and classical conservatism. Yet, with any group of people, not everyone is going to agree, and parties form even if it over a small issue. Consider the christian faith, there are many different denominations because of the beliefs in minor doctrine, but they all believe that Jesus is the Son of God, like the classical liberals and classical conservatives believe in the Constitution.
