- ideology, presented, five discursive Strategies
As a US president, Obama was not a particularly ideological person, but remains passionate about certain issues. That is, everybody should get a fair shake and should be treated with dignity or respect regardless of what they look like or who they are. Some even state that he is pretty pragmatic in how Americans get it. There are some what he called impediments to the progress and change in getting what he proposed done. Despite the fact that this statement was made domestically, there are some proofs in his three international speeches in Cairo 2009, Berlin 2013, and Havana 2016, that these are the ways in which his ideologies representing the US presented to the world. Discussed descriptively and qualitatively in terms of Five Discursive Strategies as a particular aspect of Critical Discourse Analysis, this paper is intended to elaborate how President Obama presents his American ideologies in the three speeches. Based on the analysis of the data selected from the three speeches it is found that in view of the Five Discursive Strategies President Obamas ideologies are mostly presented consistently and somewhat differently.
