Abstract:     
This paper examines President Obama’s rhetoric concerning financial regulation during 2009-10, during legislative action on financial reform. The study evaluates the use of basic automated textual analysis. This requires addressing a number of unresolved analytical issues. This study offers some conclusions regarding these issues. The analysis also clarifies elements of Obama’s rhetorical strategy in dealing with financial regulation and has implications for students of presidential agenda-setting.
