Mr. Savage spoke about his book, Takeover: The Return of the Imperial Presidency and the Subversion of American Democracy, published by Little, Brown and Company. Charlie Savage contends that the Republican Party has focused on concentrating increased power around the presidency following Watergate. Mr. Savage argues that during President Bush’s current tenure the government’s system of checks and balances has deliberately been abused to encourage the increased decision making ability of the commander-in-chief. Mr. Savage was a Pulitzer Prize winning Washington correspondent for the Boston Globe. He covered national legal affairs with a focus on issues related to counterterrorism and executive power. Mr. Savage responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
