Describe and discuss the different powers of the president. Specifically, define the differences between the president’s expressed, implied, delegated, and inherent powers and provide an example of each. What are some of the checks placed on these powers by the other branches of government?
During the nineteenth century, Congress was America’s dominant institution of government, and members of Congress sometimes treated the president with disdain.  Explain how presidents changed this reality over the last 120 years by adopting an administrative strategy. In particular, discuss how presidents have (1) enhanced the reach and power of the Executive Office of the President (EOP); (2) increased White House control over the federal bureaucracy; and (3) expanded the role of instruments of direct presidential governance.
One way presidents have expanded their power is through employing a strategy of “going public.” Describe what this strategy entails and what its limitations are. In your answer, be sure to provide specific examples of how particular presidents have used this strategy.
In some cases, the president (and the executive branch that serves under him) can take actions that have the force of law. Identify, define, and discuss at least two different ways the president to take unilateral action that sets public policy in the United States. How, if at all, are these consistent with the principles of the separation of powers system embedded in the U.S. Constitution?
Perhaps the most significant constitutional powers of the president are those concerning waging war. Explore the president’s war powers. What are they? How have presidents exercised those powers? What are the war powers of Congress? How has Congress attempted to limit the president’s unilateral use of war powers?
Since the ratification of the Constitution, the president has been joined by thousands of officials and staffers who work for, assist, or advise the chief executive. Examine some of these different individuals and institutions and discuss the roles they play in the White House. Specifically, examine the Cabinet, the White House staff, and the Executive Office of the President.
