"George to George" Shaping the Nation by our Constitution

from George H. W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum (41)

Program image

Please join us as constitutional law expert Thomas Borcher emphasizes and
discusses the specific role of the three branches of the U.S. Government:
Executive, Judicial and the Legislative branch. We will discuss how the
Constitution has guidelines and established precedents for the president to
follow. Examples of these roles will be given in this program.
Mr. Borcher will cover how George Washington, using the Constitution as his
guide, established the Executive Branch during the first presidency. This
creation of the Executive Branch set the bar that President George H.W. Bush
met throughout his presidency.
Mr. Borcher will discuss George H.W. Bush’s decisions as Commander in
Chief of the Military in the Gulf War as well as his integral role in the
implementation of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Working side by side
with Congress, President George H.W. Bush exemplified the cooperative
relationship between the different branches of government, just as President
Washington intended.
