Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: USA, Note: 1,0, Justus-Liebig-Universitat Giessen (Institut fur Politikwissenschaften), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In the end, that is God's greatest gift to us, the bedrock of this nation; the belief in things not seen; the belief that there are better days ahead. [...] I believe that as we stand on the crossroads of history, we can make the right choice, and meet the challenges that face us. America!"(27.07.2004) Dieses Zitat ist nicht Bestandteil einer amerikanischen Sonntagspredigt, irgendwo im christlich-konservativen Suden der Vereinigten Staaten. Dieses Zitat ist nicht von Geor-ge W. Bush, dem 43. Prasidenten mit einer Vorliebe fur religiose Metaphorik und Mit-glied der als konservativ geltenden republikanischen Partei. Dieses Zitat entstammt einer Rede des damaligen Senators von Illinois, Barack Obama, Mitglied der als liberal geltenden demokratischen Partei. Mary Beth Cahill, die Wahlkampfmanagerin von John Kerrys Prasidentschaftskandidatur 2004, wahlte Obama aufgrund seiner rhetorischen Kompetenz aus, um auf dem Nominierungsparteitag der Demokraten zu sprechen (Remnick 2010, 601ff.). Mit dieser Rede erregte Obama emotionale Reaktionen unter den Zuhorenden, die einen ersten Ausblick auf die Reaktionen wahrend seines eigenen Wahlkampfes 2008 gaben (Brinkbaumer/Hujer 2008). Auffallig sind in diesem Zitat die religiosen Bezuge, die Berufung auf transzendente Verheissungen und die wiederholte Nennung des Glaubens. Da der Wahlkampf John McCain gegen Barack Obama in vie-lerlei Hinsicht historisch einmalig war (vgl. Denton 2009), lasst sich der ungewohnliche Wahlerfolg Obamas sicherlich nicht eindeutig erklaren. Allerdings wird der Rhetorik Obamas eine zentrale Rolle in der Entwicklung von einem unerfahrenen Staatssenator mit Migrationshintergrund zu dem 44. Prasidenten der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zugeschrieben (Coe/Reitzes 2010; Weibler 2010). Eine wiederholte reli

The problems with President Barack Obama have nothing to do with the color of his skin. The problems are with his policies, which belittle the United States and inflate the values of other countries. We must remember that we, as Americans, are the leaders of the free world. President Barack Obama was elected president of the US because he inspired the nation to believe in Hope. But his false promises have in fact created the worst racism we have seen in decadesâ€'he is running the government in a Chicago gangland style that discredits all Americans, and he is pushing a government takeover of individual liberties that will destroy the very best of America. Robert Michener's convicting book, Barack Obama: Hope Destroyed, is dedicated to pointing out the wrongs that President Barack Obama is perpetuating on the American people while presenting reasonable solutions to each of those problems. Through indicting language and a clear cut look at facts and possibilities, Barack Obama: Hope Destroyed will put into words what many Americans feel about the direction of the present government under President Barack Obama.

Many Americans believe Barak Obama represents a hopeful future for America. But does he also reflect the American politics of the past? This book offers the broadest and best-informed understanding on the meaning of the "Obama phenomenon" to date. Paul Street was on the ground throughout the Iowa campaign, and his stories of the rising Obama phenomenon are poignant. Yet the author's background in American political history allows him to explore the deeper meanings of Obama's remarkable political career. He looks at Obama in relation to contemporary issues of class, race, war, and empire. He considers Obama in the context of our nation's political history, with comparisons to FDR, JFK, Bill Clinton, and other leaders. Street finds that the Obama persona, crafted by campaign consultants and filtered through dominant media trends, masks the "change" candidate's adherence to long-prevailing power structures and party doctrines. He shows how American political culture has produced misperceptions by the electorate of Obama's positions and values. Obama is no magical exception to the narrow-spectrum electoral system and ideological culture that have done so much to define and limit the American political tradition. Yet the author suggests key ways in which Obama potentially advances democratic transformation. Street makes recommendations on how citizens can productively respond to and act upon Obama's influence and the broader historical and social forces that have produced his celebrity and relevance. He also lays out a real agenda for change for the new presidential administration, one that addresses the recent failures of democratic politics.

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Theoretische (Erkenntnis, Wissenschaft, Logik, Sprache), Note: 1,1, Universitat Potsdam, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Jacques Derrida hat die Hermeneutik der sozialen Kommunikation herausgefordert. Er beschrieb die Wiederholbarkeit des Zeichens als ein Prinzip, das widerspruchliche Wortbedeutungen miteinander vermittelt. In diesem Essay wird nach dem Verhaltnis gefragt, dass Derrida zwischen sozialer Ordnung und ihrem Aussen entwirft. Es wird sich eine radikale Tendenz in Derridas Werk zeigen: seine Theorie raumt den Parasiten' der Normalsprache unbedingten Zutritt zu den gesellschaftlichen Ritualen ein. Zu dieser Schlussfolgerung gelangt er, weil er die Wirkungsmachtigkeit diskursiver Grenzen vernachlassigt und sie dem ethischen Projekt der Dekonstruktion unterordnet. Ein soziologisch reichhaltigerer Begriff der Kommunikation lasst sich entwickeln, wenn man die Diskurstheorien Judith Butlers und Ernesto Laclaus hinzuzieht. Sie beschreiben die Offnung der Bedeutung als einen voraussetzungsreichen Prozess. Ein solcher muss gegen die blinde und machtvolle Gleichformigkeit sozialer Praxis behauptet werden, wozu es der strategischen Intervention handelnder Subjekte bedarf. Die Wirkungen des sprachlichen Mediums gehen aber nicht in einer Politisierung der Grenze auf. Am Beispiel einer missgluckten Wahlkampfrede John McCains wird die eigensinnige, vorpolitische Funktionsweise der Sprache hervortreten, die Derridas Theorie des Zeichens zu denken gibt."

Barack Obama erobert Amerika und versetzt die Welt in Staunen. Der eloquente Aufsteiger mit der unvergleichlichen Lebensgeschichte gilt als Phänomen: Wer ist Barack Obama und welche Ziele verfolgt er? Viel darüber verrät seine bisherige Lebensleistung, aber auch die härteste Prüfung, die Obama als Politiker zu bestehen hatte: sein historisches Duell mit Hillary Clinton - die erste Frau als Favoritin für das US-Präsidentenamt gegen den ersten chancenreichen Afroamerikaner. Ein Duell zweier politischer Superstars. Der Rekordvorwahlkampf - nach Medieninteresse, Wahlbeteiligung, Einschaltquoten, Wahlspenden, Zuschauermengen - war bis zum Schluss spannend und wurde erbittert ausgefochten. Mit Obamas sensationellem Sieg in Iowa begann eine fünfmonatige Serie von dramatischen Ereignissen und Wendungen, die viel über seinen Charakter und seine politische Philosophie aussagen. Faktenreich schildert dieses Buch die Höhepunkte des vielleicht packendsten Wahlduells der Geschichte - ein Wahlduell, dessen Ergebnis das Gesicht der Vereinigten Staaten nachhaltig verändern düfte.

Barack Obama was once a most unlikely candidate, but his successful campaign for the White House made him a worldwide sensation and a transformative figure even before he was inaugurated. Elected as the Iraq War and the Great Recession had discouraged millions of Americans, Obama made a promise of hope that revived the national spirit. Soon after he occupied the White House, Congress approved his economic-recovery act and his program to save the U.S. auto industry. Both worked better than any observer predicted, and together they powered a recovery that has seen growth return and unemployment reduced to below five percent. Today the American economy is again the most vibrant in the world and its recovery has far outpaced Western Europe's. Had he only saved the U.S. economy, Barack Obama would be considered a truly successful president. However, he has achieved so much more, against ferocious opposition---including some who challenged his claim to being an American citizen---that he can be counted as one of the most consequential presidents in history. With health care reform he ended a long-running crisis of escalating costs and inadequate access of treatment that threatened the well-being of 50 million people. His energy policies drove down the cost of power generated by the sun, the wind, and even fossil fuels. His efforts on climate change produced the first treaty to address global warming in a meaningful way---the Paris Agreement---and his diplomacy produced a dramatic reduction in the nuclear threat posed by Iran. Add the withdrawal of troops from Iraq, the normalization of relations with Cuba, and his “pivot” toward Asia, and Obama's successes abroad match those at home. In A Consequential President, Michael D'Antonio tallies President Obama’s long record of achievement, recalling both his major successes and less-noticed ones that nevertheless contribute to his legacy. The record includes Obama's role as a inspirational leader who was required to navigate race relations as the first black president and had to function in an atmosphere that included both racial acrimony from his critics and unfair expectations among supporters. In light of these conditions, Obama's greatest achievement came as he restored dignity and ethics to the office of the president, and serve as proof that he has delivered the hope and the change he promised eight years before.
