3.1.3 Journal: The President's Power Journal U.S. Government and Politics (S4124713) Edward Ellis Points possible: 10 Date: ____________ The power of the American presidency has grown over time, particularly during times of war. In this activity, you read about the actions of six presidents: Abraham Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, and George W. Bush. You will now write a 200- to 300- word journal entry reflecting on their actions. Your journal entry should address these questions: Do their actions represent appropriate uses of presidential power, or examples of presidents overstepping the authority they were granted by the Constitution? How do you think the framers of the Constitution would respond to the presidency's expanded powers? In your opinion, do U.S. presidents today have too much power or not enough? Make sure to include specific evidence to support your response. This assignment is worth 10 points.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
