    Smile Barack Obama study- Agree or Disagree?

    Im British, and recently for a controlled assesment in English class, we were asked to study and write about Barack Obama, It would be interesting to see how many of you Americans agree? And what are you opinions of him as president? I only have half of the 'assesment.' Figured people would get bored with the entire thing!

    President Obama talks in a contemplative, genuine and honest tone in most of his speeches, especially in his inaugural speech. His dialect and choice of tone argues his point in a more persuasive way. Barack Obama is a well known respected personality. As the president of the United States he experiences specific, sometimes overwhelming duties he must carry out.
    He uses language of positivity to shape his speech and how he delivers it. The language of positivity he uses helps to evenly form a layout of many of his speeches. He even uses language of positivity when the topic he may be addressing is language of despair, tragedy or loss of life. The most common way for Barack Obama to use language of positivity is through looking to the future, and what will happen in the future to correct past mistakes.
    He also uses language of positivity as a way of persuasion and ‘self glory’, “we remain a young nation” “we remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on earth.”
    The use of race, class and religion in Barack Obama’s speeches adds to the severity and importance of them. It shows in many ways his attitude towards the Taliban and the operation in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Leave Iraq and Afghanistan to its people and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan.”
    Barack Obama has grasped a ‘talent’ of galvanising people together to address multiple audiences. Whilst addressing multiple audiences he often ties it in with race, class, and religion. He also does it to show presidential glory and righteousness. “And travelled across oceans in search of a new life.” The way he speaks to multiple audiences adds relevance to the way he speaks as a president; he has the ability to appeal to the whole world positively.
    Barack Obama also uses the strength of past America to influence future ideas and plans. “For us, they fought and died in places concord and Gettysburg.” He talks about past success and what helped and contributed to making America what it is today.

    Our President is a remarkable man.
    The essay is good and I believe that you have captured the hope and promise that his message delivers to the world.
    The office of the President of the United States requires a complex and intelligent person. He is after all the most powerful person on earth. Obama's decisions have lasting affects on not only the USA but the world.
    I am a proud supporter. However I do not always agree with him. Shalom

    I honestly don't think Obama is a very good speaker at all. He says "uhhhh" way too much. I also think his personality isn't very respectable, he's cocky and arrogant. I think his language of positivity has done nothing but give false hope. "He also uses language of positivity as a way of persuasion and self glory" YES HE DOES. The only part he has played in religion is ridding the constitution of if. JMO.

    Vogue,
    Are you asking for commentary on the quality of your essay, as a piece of expository writing, or whether or not we agree with you? Or just what we think of Presidant Obama?
    If you want to read a very robust discussion of the President, go to this thread and you can hear some powerfully worded and powerfully differing points of view:

    I don't know why I said constitution, although religion IS referenced in the constitution, I meant government.

    I would think he's good at speaking. He gets lots of practice.
    As my grandma used to say," The emptiest cans rattle the most".

    I think your writing is excellent.
    But.....I don't like him one bit.
    I agree with azwantapaint, I hope he's a one-term president.
    I don't like how he runs things. I don't see him as a president, just someone who fills in the blank. IMO.
