Short Assignment 1: Romney and Rhetoric (11)

Today, Romney spoke to a college audience in Ohio about rhetoric and the economy. He told his public to be aware of rhetoric when listening to candidates for the presidency give speeches and to consider other attributes of the candidates as well. He told his audience to keep in mind the history each candidate has tied to their political careers. Romney used his credibility and authority as a tool to persuade his audience to be aware of President Obama’s last attempts to win the youth votes with his charismatic speeches and to consider what he has done for the country as well. Without using the President’s name in his speech, he was able to get his message across to the audience about the student loan cuts the president is attempting to pass to win over the college public.
