There are many similar aspects of Nixon's 1970 address as well as Obama's 2013 speech. Nixon brings up the topic of the Vietnam war and how the 70s being a new era and that the war will close during this decade. Nixon states how the goal of the foreign policy is to accomplish this and generate the 1st time period where every nation would be at peace! It is very sad to realize that Obama addresses bringing home our soldiers from war a whopping 43 years later...Nixon also wanted to reduce our involvement in the affairs of other nations which seams understandable but a bit harsh.

Th speeches had to do with the issues of taking care of the lower income part of America. Nixon wanted to completely abolish the welfare system and turn it into more of an income support/incentives/training program. Obama was talking highly of accomplishing the affordable health care act that was slowing health care costs overall. The environment was brought up with the statement of "restoring nature" from Nixon and "combating climate change"
I didn't realize that about Nixon. What I need you to do Cynthia is compare President Washington's Speech in 1790 not Richard Nixon's speech of 1970. There is a 200 year difference. I gave you a copy of President Washington's speech.
okay, i was in class for this. I missed class TODAY, the 7th. But there is no other way for me to blog do i'll do it for this.
washington's speech and obama's speech are similar in that they both capture the meaning of unity and importance of a militia. Because washington was the first president, he was co
*concerned with a national defense and stablizing his new independent world. Obsma and washington alsobothed talked about foreign affairs. Obsma was talking about bringing jobs to America and having good relationships abroad. Washingtontalked about trading grains, etc to generate money growth and create an economy. obama wanted to work with others for this reason as well. The circumstances may not be AS harsh, biut is still very important. The two men alsostressed education and its importance, especially starting from an early age
