U.S. Imperial Presidency

The future of the imperial presidency

For those who think government powers need firm limitations, the good news is that all three prospects to replace Bush say he has overreached. The bad news is that whoever wins, things probably won’t change much. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain are on the record rejecting the supersized presidency. All three would curtail or abandon the use of signing statements. They believe Bush’s detainment of American citizens as enemy combatants was wrong. They agree that the president may not authorize torture. All, asked by The Boston Globe if the president could bomb Iran without congressional authorization in the absence of an imminent threat, said no. But can they be trusted?

U.S. Imperial Presidency

On Bill Moyers Journal Friday: "Is an imperial presidency destroying what America stands for? Bill Moyers sits down with history and international relations expert and former Army Col. Andrew J. Bacevich, who identifies three major problems facing our democracy - the crises of economy, government and militarism - and calls for a redefinition of the American way of life."
