Summary/Abstract: Tito's era in the political rhetoric of modern lasted for over half a century. It was from the aspect of political rhetoric a retrograde period of dissolution of political rhetoric with three negative consequences. Firstly, Tito's era produced on a large scale meaningless, illogical and untrue political speeches inciting tension and intolerance or completely useless doctrinaire political speech without clear or more often without any political conception. Secondly, at that time the model of a 'deaf speaker' was created (a speaker who is not interested in what the party says, which cannot tolerate the argument of political difference and who is entirely uninterested in his own spoken words) which gained solid ground in the Milosevic era. Finally the model of 'subject' or 'uninterested audience' was created which is a problem encountered by political rhetoric in transition Serbia.
