What strategies did the speaker use to achieve the specific purpose of the speech?

During Katrina, I visited Sheriff Harry Lee, a Democrat and a good friend of mine. When I walked into his makeshift office, Id never seen him so angry. He was yelling into the phone: ‘Well, Im the Sheriff and if you dont like it you can come and arrest me! I asked him: ‘Sheriff, whats got you so mad? He told me that he had put out a call for volunteers to come with their boats to rescue people who were trapped on their rooftops by the floodwaters. The boats were all lined up ready to go, when some bureaucrat showed up and told them they couldnt go out on the water unless they had proof of insurance and registration. I told him, ‘Sheriff, thats ridiculous. And before I knew it, he was yelling into the phone: ‘Congressman Jindal is here, and he says you can come and arrest him too! Harry just told the boaters to ignore the bureaucrats and go start rescuing people.
There is a lesson in this experience: The strength of America is not found in our government. It is found in the compassionate hearts and the enterprising spirit of our citizens. We are grateful for the support we have received from across the nation for the ongoing recovery efforts. This spirit got Louisiana through the hurricanes and this spirit will get our nation through the storms we face today.
To solve our current problems, Washington must lead. But the way to lead is not to raise taxes and not to just put more money and power in hands of Washington politicians. The way to lead is by empowering you, the American people. Because we believe that Americans can do anything.”
