The inaugural address of U.S. presidents is symbolic of the moments of political life of this country. They mark the transition from one presidency to another or the re-nomination of a president, in a particular mix of content. They celebrate the greatness of America and its democratic institutions to a specific situation that requires the speech to address a particular topic. It is understandable that there is immediately a certain tension between epideictic speeches of praise and contemplation required by the context and political discourse involving division and is often ruptured. The inaugural address of U.S. presidents is steeped in paradox. Sometimes consensual, and sometimes written in reaction to the previous mandate, they handle themes and literary techniques in a common situation with a different cognitive and ideological framework.

[...] In general, this first part is surprising when compared to President Bush's first speech or the second term inauguration speeches of U.S. presidents. The first part of the speech of 2005 seems to focus exclusively on foreign policy and adopts a serious tone that opposes traditional epideictic speeches. The record on domestic policy is currently ignored (unlike traditional re-inauguration speeches dealing with this in the first part) and so it seems that the international context is the priority. In addition, the feeling that this is not directly to the Americans that this part is intended is troubling. [...]

[...] To test these hypotheses, we will address two tests: the first will focus on the inauguration speech of President Bush in 2001 while the second will focus on the speech of 2005 with particular interest on what differentiates the speech of the first .For this, we will use a number of concepts of political science applied to the specific context of the United States and the constant references to the previous inaugural speeches of U.S. presidents. Before turning to the analysis of discourse as such, it seems important to revisit the circumstances of the election of George W Bush to the presidency of the United States in 2000. [...]

[...] We can consider that these repetitions of the word is an anaphoric figure of speech employed to legitimize the unity of America involving all Americans, represented by the president), but also the will and courage of the new president to deal with any difficult challenges that may arise.The part developed around the idea of a compassionate America from the line 66 is designed to introduce the "pathos" in the statement reaffirming American unity and solidarity while stressing in the tradition of Republican thought that the state cannot be a single countering entity against poverty.The American associations and community described in other times by Tocqueville (Tocqueville, 1835) is still valid and the insistence of President Bush's religious communities also aims to produce a discourse around the consensus (lines 75 - 77).
