Presidencies Thesis-22
Like checking my e-mail constantly and replying to them as soon as I can.But I know that if it was different I would not enjoy life as much.And some claim that the two presidencies phenomenon continues to persist much as Wildavsky described almost fifty years ago.

To some extent, his own foreign policy successes may render foreign policy issues less salient for most voters in 2012. On the other hand, Republicans will not likely enjoy the built-in advantage they have enjoyed with voters about foreign-policy questions since the end of World War II.

The contenders for the Republican nomination, with the exception of Romney and Huntsman, have expressed little interest in foreign policy.

I find that I have to have something to do, and I need to keep busy.

This crazy schedule helps me achieve the goal of always having something to do, for better for worse.Because of the way that the commander-in-chief role has evolved, I have far fewer political constraints on foreign policy action than domestic policy action. On the foreign stage, America’s standing has returned from its post-Iraq low. Liberalizing forces are making uneven but forward progress in North Africa.Muammar Gaddafi’s regime is no longer, without one American casualty. Every country in the Pacific Rim without a Communist Party running things is trying to hug us closer.Others have claimed the demise of the two presidencies as Congress has become less deferential in the foreign policy area.Still others have suggested that the two presidencies theory only covers Republican presidents.According to this theory, presidents have more constitutional and statutory authority to make foreign policy decisions than they do in domestic policy areas.Other political actors, especially in Congress, may also show greater deference to the president when it comes to foreign policy.In a recent post on the Foreign Policy site, Daniel Drezner (that’s right, the Theories of International Politics and Zombies guy) speculates about why so many Republicans have been unwilling to give the Obama administration much, if any, credit for foreign policy success.With the demise of Muammar Gaddafi, Drezner claims, “it becomes harder and harder to argue that Barack Obama’s foreign policy is a failure.” Drezner, a professor at the Fletcher School of Diplomacy at Tufts University, wonders if Obama could turn his greater successes in foreign policy compared to other policy areas to his electoral advantage in 2012.Here he imagines an Obama speech in which the incumbent president asks voters to consider what he could accomplish in domestic and economic policy if only he had the same room to maneuver that he has in foreign policy.As president, I have to address both domestic policy and foreign policy.
