Summary

WASHINGTON — With a Republican opponent all but chosen and the general election campaign about to start, President Obama is preparing to emphasize an issue that few Democratic candidates have embraced in the past: national security, long the domain of the Republican Party.

Bush: cowboy diplomacy, the Iraq war and America’s lowest standing on the international stage.
In the coming weeks, Obama advisers plan to release a list of national security “surrogates” — high-profile Democrats like former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright and Wesley K. Clark, a retired general — who will write newspaper op-ed articles, give speeches and take Mr. Romney to task every time he opens his mouth about foreign policy, Obama advisers said.
The plan is to draw a contrast between Mr. Obama — who, his advisers say, kept his word on ending the Iraq war, going aggressively after Al Qaeda and restoring alliances around the world — and Mr. Romney, who will be portrayed as playing both sides of numerous issues.
“He was for and against the removal of Qaddafi, for and against setting a timetable to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan, for and against enforcing trade laws against China, and while he once said he would not move heaven and earth to get Osama bin Laden, he later claimed that any president would have authorized the mission to do so,” said Ben LaBolt, press secretary for the Obama campaign.
The more aggressive posture is a break from the past, when Democrats on the national stage battled against the perception that the party was not as committed as Republicans were to a strong defense and an aggressive response to terrorism. Mr. Obama himself, during the 2008 campaign, drew criticism from both Republicans and his primary opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, for what they called his naïveté, particularly over his willingness to talk, without preconditions, to American foes like Iran.
But Mr. Obama’s victory that year over Senator John McCain, a Vietnam War hero, was in part a result of an electorate weary from years of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Now, with a record that includes winding down the Iraq war and killing Bin Laden, coupled with the success of the military strikes in Libya and the removal ...

This is most evident in the variation of linguistic features, such as grammar or word choice, in the study of alternative text types. One can seemingly step into the thought process, feeling the cognitive steps of organising and constructing a text, of various writers. I feel much more comfortable analysing a narrative, for example, when I can consider the language more holistically and more particularly. There are, to be sure, different vantage points. The largest impression that I take from these readings, initially at least, is the impression that there are many sub-languages and that each…

On the same day I started to research McGraw Hill Publishing which I should have began much earlier for the details of my business class. I was trying to find out the definition of love.

I also decided to make it more narrative and explanatory like a person teaching someone. This is a good way for me to visualize myself explaining the basic concepts to someone. In reality I’m actually teaching myself. Repeating terminology, ideas, and main points helps me to remember better and to grasp a better understanding. It is also mostly present tense to reflect the fact that such marketing strategies and ideas are present day and are happening as we speak. The journal is also persuasive and methodological, helping me to reinstate and reinforce the ideas taught in class. They are not…

The acceptance earned from their peers is principal in their lives as most of them would not want to end-up being cast off or be perceived as introverts. In addition to this, children at this age bracket embark on becoming extremely aggressive in their dealings which grow to become more verbal and personal in nature (Santrock, 75).…

Its own history has combined these factors to produce the present generation of poverty, nonexistent infrastructure and an inefficient state that cannot handle natural disasters in the most basic ways. From these points, I believe the Haitian people are falsely portrayed by the media as the world’s most resilient. They are poor, but we are told they do not complain. They are directly in the path of the region’s earthquakes and hurricanes, but we are told they survive. The truth is that the people of Haiti are suffering from the lack of vision, policy and strategy by its political leaders.…

She is a big and obese lady who had asked me to help her select some clothes for her. I chose for her an appropriate dress but all she wanted were dresses that were black in color. I had recommended other colors appropriate for her but she refused these and instead insisted on having only black dresses. I suggested pants for her but she instead wanted either a skirt or dress but only if it is color black. I got lucky and was able to get one for her. She was a bit friendly and talkative but I felt or sensed she was a weirdo somehow but thought it impolite to say so to her. I took a brief break…
