Which is better for the country - a Democrat president with a Republican-controlled Congress, or a Republican president with a Democrat-controlled Congress?

When we had a D President, we had Executive decisions coming out our ears.

Presidents and Congressional representatives come and go but the Supreme Court and Federal Judges appointed by a President affect us for 30 to 40 years.

Excellent point, I hadn't considered that.

I don’t know where they are teaching this bull about divided government. Party is one thing, but all congressmen should put country first. Obama hot everything they wanted with a republican congress. They caved on everything. When the dems have just one extra person on their side they viciously fight. We see that with unprecedented slow walking of judges by Schumer, the gridlock on committees and the total commitment to party first. The republicans just don’t do that. They barely hold the house and senate but paralyze trump. But I guess I’d rather have them get nothing done than get bad stuff done - so, R pres and D Congress.

Wow, that is a really great question! I actually like both, I like divided government, I hate when one party has all, it creates radicalism. I guess I would prefer Democratic President, and GOP Congress as we have seen with the last three Presidents the executive has much more power.

That has been a huge mistake of those Congresses to cede their power to the executive.

I think Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich are a great example of how it could and should work.

Agree on all points. Although it’s sad that Clinton/Gingrich is now considered the high water mark.
