Comparing inaugurals from Bush 43, Obama 44, and Trump 45
Released on 16 January 2020
This study examines the differences between five inaugural addresses delivered by three US Presidents. The purpose of this study is both to gain insight into the speeches and to document a technique for analyzing such speeches.
The themes identified in this study are accusation, challenge, gratitude, hope, ideals, information, opinion, promise, and warning. The stages of inclusivity examined are self, friends, people like us, citizens, multinational, humanitarian, and ecological. The variance between speakers and speeches is measured multi-dimensionally and examined for clues about the speaker's intent.
The technique used in this study is unveiled gradually with one layer added upon another sequentially until the full technique is defined.
