Short Assignment 1: Obama, Bin Laden and Romney (9)

Today marks the one year anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death, but that doesn’t stop President Obama from making a statement in regards of Romney and Bin Laden. Using strong rhetoric, Obama stated that if Romney were in his place he would not have done the same. Romney did not appreciate the comment and a spoke person from his campaign used unity among the American public as a rhetorical device to point out that the president is only trying to “distract [the] voter’s attention from the failures of his administration.” By stating that the event of Bin Laden’s death was an unifying event that helped bring the states together, he was able to convince his audience that Obama is doing the opposite by using it to target Romney.
