In Barack Obama’s speech his main aim were outlined in six points which were also chronologically structured into his speech; His first two paragraphs basically consisted of thanks to the American people for holding up this far which is the first main point. The next five paragraphs of his speech are intentionally focused on honestly acknowledging the economic crisis. After the second point is addressed in the previously mentioned five paragraphs by Obama, the next ten paragraphs of his speech focuses on his third main point, which is Americans have always faced crises and overcome them. The next two paragraphs of Obama’s revolutionary inaugural speech are geared toward addressing the cynics; The main purpose of which is to persuade “those” who are skeptical of his plans as president. The next five paragraphs, which are the second to last of his main six points, are basically focused on Speaking about the world and to the World. In the fifth point he also charts a new foreign policy which is anchored on common, human ideals. Barack Obama transitions back to the American people in the sixth point to concluding his last point with eight paragraphs which also concludes and closes his thirty five paragraph revolutionary forty fourth presidential inaugural speech. The sixth and final point closing Obama’s speech is a call to arms to the American people which message is basically the solution lies within the determination of the people. Overall I think that there was considerable pressure on President Obama, known for his oratory skills, to deliver an impressive inauguration speech, and from Americans' perspective, I think that he did more than succeeded.
In the first paragraph Barack Obama talks about the Sacrifices from our ancestors he also thanks the previous president Bush for his, “service to our nation and his cooperation for Barack Obama’s transition into office.
In the second paragraph through the third paragraph Barack Obama the author explains how forty four Americans have now taken the presidential oath during times of “prosperity.” “peace” and sometimes Barack Obama says “sum take the oath admit gathering clouds and raging storms.”
In the fifth paragraph of Obama’s inaugural address; He talks about the economic crisis as well as offers the “American” peoples words of encouragement. In the fifth paragraph Obama address’s the people when he says “Less measurable, but no less profound, is a sapping of confidence across our land; a nagging fear that Americas decline is inevitable, [and] that the next generation, must lower its sights.” (P5) In the sixth paragraph of Barack Obama’s inaugural address he begins by saying, “Today’s challenges are “real”…”serious”…and “many.” In paragraph six Barack moves on to reinsure his audience, by stating at the end of paragraph six, “But know this America : They will be met.” (P6)
In paragraph twelve I think that Obama in particularly refers to the diverse races and cultures, that defiantly governs the American nation in conceptually precise direct manor, when he implies in the begging in paragraph twelve with; “For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of new life. For us, they toiled sweatshops and settled the West, endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.” The Author Barack Obama speaks about the working class American citizens as well as the Soldiers who have “fought” for America when he said “For us our people died in Concord and Gettysburg ; Normandy and khe sahn.” (P13) In paragraph fourteen Barack Obama portrays the American crisis at hand to the previous “crisis” that America has also faced as a nation, an examples is when he said; “Our people slaved struggled sacrificed so that we might live a better life.” “We are the most grateful nation on Earth…workers no less productive than when this crisis began.” (P14)
