Obama’s Victory Speech

Obama’s Victory Speech has impressed the whole world. Obama have used a lot of techniques which make people in the USA believe in him and make them feel united. In this essay of Obama’s victory speech, I will explain some of the techniques Obama uses and for what purpose. Besides that I will comment on important and meaningful quotes.
Obama’s Victory Speech is separated in a lot of small sections. After finishing one section of his speech, he makes a long dramatic pause. That makes the speech very intimate. These dramatic pauses are used by almost any good speaker. Obama’s manner of speaking is very natural, he tells about experiences he have had, he shows a lot of gratitude, he speak with humility of a high degree and shows a very high amount of empathy for his people. An example of Obama’s great humility is when Obama kind of praise Mitt Romney. “We may have battled fiercely, but it’s only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future.” I think it is very humble of Obama to show such recognition for Mitt Romney. He also applies that he looks forward to work together with Mitt Romney, so by that statement Obama want everybody to have a positive point of view at Mitt Romney. So he actually does Romney a favor.
Obama made a great job winning the skeptics over. “And that provides plenty of fodder for the cynics who tell us that politics is nothing more than a contest of egos or the domain of special interests” It is very important for Obama to show that this isn’t about him just wanting to win. Obama really wants to make a difference. He point out that the people under his lead, really fight hard to make sure Obama’s political ideas is going to be reality. “You’ll hear the determination in the voice of a young field organizer who’s working his way through college and wants to make sure every child has that same opportunity” So by that quote the skeptics is going to have hard time arguing that Obama and other

    In Obama’s speech, he uses many inclusive pronouns such as ‘we’ and ‘our’. This shows that they are all the same; by doing this it creates a sense of unity among the audience.
