Although the most frequently cited as the oath-taker and those who hold inaugural speech, the presidents and their speeches are one of the most common subjects of study and analysis, and that the purpose of seeking similarities, differences and systems that can be said to be universal. In this paper we analyzed three speeches of U.S. President Roosevelt, Kennedy and Obama from the 1941st, 1962nd and the 2009th. The reason for keeping the speech is the Second World War, Cuban Missile Crisis, and the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. In speech is analyzed the argumentation and design of the rhetorical speech. In addition to the analysis are entered and the contents of the speech and the general evaluation. Expected similarities are primarily support arguments, emphasizing shared values and respect for the structure of speech. The aim of the study was the analysis and retrieval of certain rhetorical structures that can be said to have been a feature of U.S. presidential rhetoric in general. Comparison of speech has been shown to have given parts of speech respected in all three presidents, all three have a good argument, and clearly expressed the central thought of the speech. It is this similarity may be considered as features of presidential rhetoric, while the biggest difference in the use of support arguments.
