Gene Healy talked about his book, The Cult of the Presidency: America’s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power (Cato Institute; April 25, 2008). In the book, he wrote about similar excesses of executive power that presidents of both parties have enjoyed and the willingness of both Congress and the American people to give a president more power than the Constitution allows. Topics included the compromise reached by Congress the previous week on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that left many civil libertarians critical of the continued breadth of executive power. Mr. Healy also responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
