I. Introduction of some grand narrative of American history.
II. Introduction of the policy problem, making clear that Obama had nothing to do with it.
III. Argument that the proposal of Obama’s opponents is inconsistent with that grand narrative.
IV. Argument that Obama’s proposal is consistent with that grand narrative.
V. Conclusion that Obama’s proposal is the only “American” solution to the policy problem.
