Wolfe (PhD, U. of Colorado) analyzes President George W. Bush's rhetorical framing of the "war on terror" and assesses the evidence concerning its effectiveness in mobilizing public support for his foreign policy. Studying public opinion data and some 1500 presidential speeches over a four-year period, he finds that the literature that argues that the public is willing to accept risk when faced with gains is wrong and that instead it was the presidential framing of threats and losses that contributed to public support for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
