Discuss and compare at least two different areas in which presidential national security power was exercised by Presidents Bush and Obama, using specific examples for each.

discuss and compare at least two different areas in which presidential national security power was exercised by Presidents Bush and Obama, using specific examples for each. For example, you could pick surveillance for Bush and the use of military force for Obama (or, as another example, you could pick surveillance for both administrations). Also answer these questions: have both, either, or neither of these presidents been faithful to the vision of presidential power (1) envisioned by the Framers of the Constitution and (2) put into action by prior presidents (and is that the right way to evaluate them—by determining whether they have been faithful to what the Framers intended or actions taken by past presidents)?

Please also discuss at least two other presidents in writing your answer, again using specific examples. You can and should use course materials but you also must use at least five additional sources (books and/or scholarly articles) to support your arguments. Please be sure to include citations in your paper when necessary (any standard format is fine—Chicago Manual of Style, MLA, Turabian—what matters to me is that you provide proper citation so that it is clear where your information comes from. This applies both to quoted excerpts from other materials and to ideas/information used or drawn on from other sources even when you do not include directly quoted excerpts. It also applies to facts you discuss).
