This thesis examines the exponential increase in the power of the presidency during wartime from the time of the Founding Fathers up until the beginning of the Obama administration. It focuses on the ways in which our Nation's wartime presidents have marginalized the role of Congress and the judiciary during foreign conflicts. The first half of this work analyzes the actions of wartime presidents from a historical context, which is supplemented in the second half by an in-depth comparative discussion of the actions taken by the Bush administration during the War on Terror. This work concludes by recommending detailed courses of action to be pursued by future presidents in order to restore the fundamental maxim of checks and balances.
