Exploring The Executive Branch of Government.
In this paper I hope to show you a little about the executive branch of government, and the things
that President of the United States does.
When talking about the Executive Branch, or Presidential Branch you need to understand
the offers. The layers in places go like this Potus, Vice Potus, and cabinet. Once the Presidential
candidate, and running mate are elected they await the day of the inauguration. Once that day has
arrived, the Vice President gets sworn in, then the President, takes the same oath that states that
and I quote "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President
of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States so help me God."
Once the President is sworn in, he takes office, and gets moved into the White House.
The day after is when he start the job, and his first 100 days. Some may say that they are some of
the most influential parts of the Presidency, and it can make or break his career in office. This is
something that I think can be a good, and sometimes bad thing. Look at President Reagan told
Congress give me 90% and next year I will get the 10%.
The first 100 days is also when the President proposes what he would like to see done
during his administration, and gets his cabinet in line as well. This task is just as important as
everything else, because if anything happened to the President they will have to answer the call
of the Presidency. That is only a little taste of what the President has to deal with all within his
first 100 days.
What do you think of when you hear succession? Within the presidency that has its own
succession, and it goes like this the President, Vice President, the House Speaker, President
protim of the Senate, and then you get into President's cabinet.
The only time that the line of succession starts is when the President can not do his job,
resigns or if the President dies . The constitution gives us this right by the 25th amendment, and
this has only been put in play two time one for President Reagan, and another for President
George W. Bush.
Now thinking of the line of succession looking at the cabinet. At the top of the list is the
Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Attorney General, and Secretary of Homeland Security.
That is the succession of the President's cabinet, and the only time that one of them have to sit in
as acting President is when the 25th amendment is invoked. As I have said this only when the
Potus is incapacitated, and can not do his job.
The strange thing is that when President Reagan had the attempt on his life the 25th was
not invoked. I am surprised that they did not put the 25th into play because he collapsed from
blood loss. I would also like to correct a past statement, and that is the 25th has...
