Obama and Romney Campaign pic abbreviationAnalysis of Obama and Romney motion AdvertisementsIgbinosa OjehomonAccording to McNair Brian semi semi policy-making parley simply is purposeful communication about politics1 From his definition of policy-making communication, the main script that strikes a chord is purposeful which according to Merriam Webster dictionary, defines purposeful as having a clear aim or purpose2 So his explanation could be summarized as communication related to politics having a clear aim. Political communication always has an intent and intended target. much so, it usu ally has an accusative and the objective most of the prison term it is to influence and persuade an intended assemblage or populace. Besides political communication is always issue specific. opus time the information disseminated is well-defined to reflect a particular marrow. This is make in other to ensure that the recipients of the targeted information get the intended nitty-gri tty in other to excite maximum clash. Besides political communication has gone beyond just spoken words and composed text besides it has metamorphosed into to the realm of exploitation filmic and photographic cues3. These include deliberate conjunct efforts at manipulate audio-visual and pictorial materials, structured in much(prenominal) a way that it portrays a particular identity. In this fashion this could be referred to as Political Image. It further includes advertising related attributes such as type design for political political party, facial cosmetics, and hairdo making of whoever is going to be a flag be ber of the political party. All this be by design done to ensure positive construe of the political part and the party leader in other to clear a positive apprehension on the mind of the intended target in order to reach an intended objective desired by the political party and the political leader. This processes goes down to include what type of slogan to theatrical role, what color should be apply to represent the party to charge include voice training of the political leader, gesture training, walking steps to dressing style are all portion outfully manage by a specialist to portray and image consistent with what is intended by the party. Funny enough all this duty item in political communication has influence by advancement in communication technology. From paper to newspapers, magazine to radio, television to the social media. in time the coming of the television most especially the colored television has open a fora for exceedingly colorful political advertising programs, speeches, jingles all utilize super creative multimedia tools to produce the most colorful and eye assemblage ikon footage. Besides all entities father components, this divisions that make up the entity. Against the scope the parts that make up political communication are as fol modests the media, the citizens and the political organization4COMPONE NT OF POLITICAL COMMUNICATIONThe citizen, media and political organization are all core parts of political communication. They are passing leechlike on each other and they could be referred to as mutually interdependent. to each one constituent depend on the other constituent depend on the other constituent for relevance. This process is in any case vice versa.Firms 2012 (Barack Obamas commove)https// esteem?v=Ud3mMj0AZZkThis 32 seconds Ad was carefully structured to support the apparent movement that Romney was the problem and non the solution to the Statesns economic woes, by exposing the trading pattern of Romneys firms and money laundering schemes. In the period when these Ads were aired, America has been experiencing a steady increase in un meshing and the saving was in a bad shape. This economic smudge badly affect the nerve class of the American society who were losing their jobs to offshore- outsourcing of labor to countries of cheap labor such as Mexico, India and mainland China. Besides, further investment in Tax havens such as Cayman Island and Bermuda. Tax havens are locations with very low tax income rate and other tax attributes knowing to appeal to contrasted investors5 Some tax haven do not apply taxes for foreign investors. This is an attraction for mystifying folks and investors, for it is more profitable for them to invest in this place because of low or zero tax. This must have been an attraction for Romneys firm, for his is a traffic man and wants to make profits. However, investing cash in hand in another(prenominal) country has a tendency of improving the economy of that country. So what this Obama TV Ad is trying to drive at with relation to the economic situation in the United States, is that Romney by investing in the Cayman Island and Bermuda quite of the United States, is contributing to the economic challenges of the United States at that time and not helping the situation. For every amount of money that was invested outside the United States would have contributed to the im canvasment of the American economy. Besides, the money laundering acts by Romney highlighted in this TV Ad to Swiss business relationship helped to further reinforce the key message of this TV Ad the Romney is the problem and not the solution for when bountiful clump of money is moved from a country, it short circuit the natural geo analytical period of money in the economy and this disruptions have hold still foringful invasion on the general functioning of the economy. Likewise, those gold saved in the Swiss account by Romney if saved in banks in banks in United States, it would have help improved the American economy by making in stock(predicate) funds which banks could borrow to American citizens for business related activities and the such activities would create jobs for American plurality person the arrangement of sentiments in this Ad was very was very effective and the arrangement of evidences to support the main idea was splendid. This was an attempt to demonize Romney and blame him for economic situation at that time. However looking at things objectively Romney is a business man, and the goal of every businessman is to make profits so every sane business man will act in like-manner like Romney, such as outsourcing of jobs, investing in Tax haven if he or she senses it is profitable.The Cheaters 2012 (Barack Obamas campaign) https// tick?v=_MI4YOICmuAThis 30 seconds audio-visual Obama Ad is titled The Cheaters, this title is arrived at by taking out excerpt from Romneys speech which is as follows Its time to stand up to the cheaters and make sure we cherish jobs for the American people Funny enough this excerpt was taken from Romneys TV Ad against Obama accusing Obama of not stand up up to mainland China Hence being a cheater. So we could argue that this Obama Tv Ad is a response to Romneys Tv Ad. The architect of this Ad are very smart, in that they used Romneys words which he charge Obama of cheating and not standing up to china against him. This they did by option up key phrases in Romneys Ad such as Stand up to the cheaters and protect jobs which he accused Obama of, then using those key phrases against Romney. This they did by providing evidences to prove that what he accused Obama of, he (Romney) is finable of it that is, not standing up to china. This evidences are presented as followsFirstly, transferring employment to china. Romneys investment keep accompany called Bain capital has overtime systematically invested in companies that focus on shifting jobs from United States to china.6This is a direct bond to the fact that Romney has not stood up to china. For how can you claim you are standing up to a country and then still indirectly nominate jobs for that country at the expense of your own country. That is highly hypocritical and fallacious this was what Romneys action implied. This was what Obam a TV Ad was trying to capitalize on. That Romney is a hypocrite and dishonest hence The Cheater. This evidence is aimed at making the American public view Romney as unpatriotic. For his investment patterns was taking jobs from the American people and transferring them to China. Americans are very patriotic people, so they would not vote for a presidential candidate that reflect unpatriotic sentiments.Personally I feel this was a very convincing message, that Romney was not standing up to china for the way the Obama TV portrayed itsecond, heavily investing in china. The management industry in china is a booming industry collectable to the rising flagellum of insecurity as a result of large and growing population. This Obama TV Ad help to highlight the fact that significant portion of Romneys wealthy is invested in the surveillance industry in china.7 This directly boosts the Chinese economy, provide jobs for Chinese people. This action of Romneys firms highly lucubrates the fact that Romney is not standing up to china instead he is reinforcement china. These furthermore reinforces the fact that he is supporting china at the expense of the American people. This has negative connotation on the voting populace. For the American people have been wary of china for it is a direct threat to the American economy. For it is a hub for cheap labor and a distribution berth for cheap product to the United States. Due to this economic characteristics of china, American has been losing funds and jobs to china. So Obama TV Ad on the second point helps to illustrate that Romney has chosen to align himself with china which is a threat to American economy. Thus, it indicates that Romney is supporting china. This message the Obama TV Ad tries to pass across to the American people that Romney is supporting china which depriving them jobs while he claims he is not supporting china.To sum up, the two TV Ad of Obama titled Firms 2012 and the cheaters 2012 were designed to were designed portray script Romney in a negative fashion. The Tv Ad Title Firms 2012 was designed so that the American public could perceive Mitt Romney as the cause of Americas economic challenges due to foreign outsourcing of jobs and investment in tax havens which indirectly causes unemployment and reduction in funds available in the American economy. much so the campaign advertising title The cheaters 2012 was to evince mitt Romney as not a dishonest person, for he claimed he would stand up to china, however his financial company was heavily investing in china directly and indirectly ejaculate http// Romney, has had successful career both academically, politically and businesswise until the presidential choice in 2012 which he lost to Barack Obama. He studied in common ivy League schools such as Stanford and Harvard8. Politically he was one time governor of Massachusetts. Businesswise he owns a ve ry profitable financial company called Bain capital.9This company has been very profitable to Romney and has help to manage his financial assets and enthrall funds to profitable investments.Conservative Agenda 2012 (Mitt Romneys campaign)https// first few words of this campaign Tv advertisement summarizes everything in this video. That is Mitt Romney claiming that he would make the American regimen simpler smaller and smarter, this he further relieves he would do through nationalization of programs eliminating non-essential programs and Obamacare. This his rhetoric is highly conservative and a reflection of Republican party doctrine. Republican Party are not in favor of welfare programs, that may explain why he said he will get unloose of programs(Obamacare).He also talks about introducing spending cut and balancing of budget. By this he is trying to show that Obamas government are not literate enough to handle the American economy. More so his court here to what is causing job loss for the American people is government deficit as a result of repletionive spending .In this campaign add he is outlining the problems of the American economy and offering solutions to it. He is not directing his criticism at Obamas personality but at the mental home that represent Obamas government. Besides his words in this video is portraying care and concern for the American people and the succeeding(a). He is portraying himself as a responsible father by talking about the negative impact the Obama government is having on the future of the American kid.Give Me a outrage 2012 (Mitt Romneys campaign)https// me a break representation literally excuse me or give me breathing space. This could literally mean mitt Romney telling Obama to give the American people a break, for even former president Clinton said the same word in 2008 presidential campaign about Obama, highlighting the fact that he cou ld not fulfil any meaningful solution Obama would bring. For since Obama took potency the American economy has regressed, the midway class are falling backward and large chunk of the American population are looking for job. flunk American Workers 2012 (Mitt Romneys campaign)https// title of campaign advertisement summarizes everything in this video. Before Obama took office for the first time he promised to create jobs and revive the economy. However the video illustrates that Obama has failed to carry out up to his promises, thereby failing the American workers, who are affected most by his failure. Romney shows using figures that illustrate that Americas manufacturing jobs was more than china but when Obama took office, it drop till the extent that china overtook America in manufacturing jobs. An excess of half a million manufacturing jobs were lost under Obamas first administration. This is a concrete prove that Obama has failed the Ameri can worker. This is the message Romney is trying to pass across.Failing American Families 2012 (Mitt Romneys campaign)https// is a very all important(p) factor in among the conservative in the American society. Romney is using the family as a weapon to show that under Obamas administration family income has on a regular interval been reducing by 4000 dollars and furthermore he also illustrates that national debt have increased steadily. By this happen he has failed to meet up to the expectation he promised the American people when he initially took office hence failed the American families.PERSONAL ANALYSISIn this department would attempt to analyze Obama campaign and Romney campaign separately then show the differences and similarities between the twoThe differences between Obama campaign and Romney campaign in this Video clips is that the two Obama video clips are is more of a personality storm on Romney, designed to create negative sent iment about Romney. Secondly it is mainly focused on Romney as the cause of the problems. Thirdly it it is assail Romneys business life. Taking his past business activity and associating it to be the cause of American economic problems and increase unemployment. While alternatively Romneys campaign advertisement is has substance. Substance in the sense that it is using statistics, numeric facts to prove that Obamas first time in office has done America more harm than good. He does that by comparing Americas economy (house hold income, employment rate and debt burden), before Obama took office and afterwards Obamas first term in office. He used it to prove that America has not made progress domestically and internationally when compared to china. Personally this is highly convincing, concrete and professional. The challenge to Romneys approach is that it appeal to the intellectuals and highly educated. In short it appeal to the brain because it the argument are logical and factual . But, it is not the whole American population that would view his campaign from that standpoint. More so Romneys campaign advertisement was more nationalistic and futuristic. He was trying to make the America public understand the negative impact of Obamas government in the first four years on the future of the American people.More so, Romneys campaign Advertisement was making use of authoritys facts, such as information from national authorization of statistics, while Obama was utilizing information from newspapers etc. But when view both campaign, Obama campaign seemed to have more effects because it appealed to the emotion. It provoked negative feelings towards Romney by the American people, no wonder Obama won the presidential election the second time.In conclusion, Obama negative campaigning again Romney won again Romneys logical and systematic and factual representation of campaign advertisement can personally learn from this that people may response more effectively to emo tionally charged campaign advertisement than to logical and factual campaign advertisement. More so independent research also suggest that Obama was more true(a) that Romney, only God knows.BIBLIOGRAPHY1. McNair, Brian. An groundwork to political communication. Taylor Francis, 2011.2.
