For our next speech analysis, we’ll take a look at a recent speech from President Barack Obama, and his address about the deficit reduction on July 5, 2011.
Please note: It is not my intention to argue or debate the context of this speech. I ask that you evaluate the rhetoric objectively and not from a standpoint of whether or not you agree with the President’s remarks.
In similar fashion, evaluate the President’s speech as if you were grading his effort.
What do you notice about his posture? His language?
What type of vocabulary and terminology are you hearing, that you don’t normally hear?
Please watch this short video, then share your thoughts and reactions in the discussion board.
