As with all campaign discourse, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Announcement videos are an evolving genre of campaign rhetoric, and as such are borrowing freely from already existing rhetorical forms. Some are direct address videos, where the candidate speaks straight to the camera. Others borrow from advertising conventions, with lush footage of scenes from the heartland. Note how this video, from Herman Cain, features the candidate emerging from the heartland at the outset of the video, as if called to public service, impelled to leadership by the promise of the nation’s future and greatness, and not from personal ambition or desire.

2004, by most accounts, was the year of the political documentary. All of the Swift Boat stuff along with numerou s films about Bush. And then there was Fahrenheit 9/11 . The 2008 election saw fewer films in the mix, though Hillary: The Movie may be more well-known as the text that gave rise to the Citizens United decision than for its actual content. A good collection of essays examining those films is The Rhetoric of the New Political Documentary , edited by Thomas Benson and Brian Snee.

Now there’s word that a feature film is due out next month in Iowa about Sarah Palin and her tenure (brief as it was) as governor of Alaska. All of this fueling talk that she’s getting to run for president–the house in Arizona, hiring new advisers, beefing up her speaking schedule. NYT has a story about Palin’s possible presidential run and Real Clear Politics highlights the new film .

NC (voiceover): Man, and I mean MAN, is this weird! I just don’t get who thought this had potential. Who would throw money at this, thinking they would honestly get it back? And for that matter, how did they manage to even get some of these people? I mean, they’re not gigantic names, but I’m seriously surprised that every actor didn’t change their name to Alan Smithee after watching this shit-fest. It’s that bad.

Narrator: Billionaire Elizar Kane will launch his New Eden Missile to bring on another Ice Age. After Mankind is extinct, Kane will reanimate the pairs of all earth’s animals he keeps frozen in his ark.

NC (voiceover): So we see this assassin guy going after…well, a dinosaur, as he tries to kill him by…letting loose a butterfly.

Theodore Roosevelt Jr. ( / ˈ r oʊ z ə v ɛ l t / ROH -zə-velt ; [a] October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919) was an American statesman and writer who served as the 26th President of the United States from 1901 to 1909. He also served as the 25th Vice President of the United States from March to September 1901 and as the 33rd Governor of New York from 1899 to 1900. As a leader of the Republican Party during this time, he became a driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the early 20th century. His face is depicted on Mount Rushmore , alongside those of George Washington , Thomas Jefferson , and Abraham Lincoln .

With the publication of The Influence of Sea Power upon History , 1660–1783 in 1890, Navy Captain Alfred Thayer Mahan was immediately hailed as the world's outstanding naval theorist by the leaders of Europe. Roosevelt paid very close attention to Mahan's emphasis that only a nation with the world's most powerful fleet could dominate the world's oceans, exert its diplomacy to the fullest, and defend its own borders. [28] [29] He incorporated Mahan's ideas into his views on naval strategy for the remainder of his career. [30] [31]

After the death of his wife and mother, Roosevelt focused on his work, specifically by re-energizing a legislative investigation into corruption of the New York City government, which arose from a concurrent bill proposing that power be centralized in the mayor's office. [35] For the rest of his life, he rarely spoke about his wife Alice and did not write about her in his autobiography. While working with Joseph Bucklin Bishop on a biography that included a collection of his letters, Roosevelt did not mention his marriage to Alice nor his second marriage to Edith Kermit Carow .

Morris combines a fine command of the era's big issues with an appreciation for the daily minutiae involved in governing a nation. Less controversially inventive, but no less readable, than the Ronald Reagan biography Dutch , Theodore Rex gives readers new reason both to admire and fault an American phenomenon. --Gregory McNamee (retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:12 -0400)
