Transcript of Gov

President's Influence "A number of factors enable presidents to exert influence over Congress in the area of domestic policy. However, presidents are also limited in their influence over domestic policymaking in Congress." Enumerated Powers Insulate the presidency from public passions.

Give enough powers to the presidency strong
enough to match Congress yet not so strong
that it would overpower Congress.

Steer clear of parties and factions, enforce the
laws passed by Congress, handle communications
with foreign governments, and help states put down
disorders. Enumerated Powers Commander in Chief of the Army and navy of the United States,
and of the Militia of the several States.
With the advice and consent (2/3s) of Senate, can make Treaties
With consent of Senate, can appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers
and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the U.S.
Can fill all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate by
granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session
State of the Union - give Congress info and recommend action Mandatory Spending Funds not controlled by anual decision of Congress.
They are obligated to spend it based off of previously innacted laws.

The president is left with a restricted budget. With the spending fixed,
he has less control over where the money goes. Also, there's less incentive
to compromise because he has less power of the money. Party Polarization When public opinion divides two parties
and goes to the extreme of those parties.
The voices of moderates lose power.

It offers no room for compromise on an issue because
everyone takes more extreme positions. Lame Duck Period A period in which everyone knows that the president
cannot or will not run again. It changes the way Congress,
the voters, and the press regard the president.

The president lacks influence because he has already been voted
out of the office which eliminates any mandate to enact policies.
Congress has no incentive to compromise with him because he/she
has no power.
