What is the best combination in the world of "the two party system"?

Republican President and Republican Congress?

Republican President and a Democratic Congress?

Democratic President and a Republican Congress?

Democratic President and a Democratic Congress?

From the small history I have looked into it seems that the best combo is "Democratic President and a Republican Congress", but what do you guys think?

When exactly was there a "good" congress? How about a split in the two houses that way they will minimalism the damage they are capable of. I understand they had a comedian performing for them yesterday. Nice job if you can get it.

During Clinton years in 1994, Johnson in 1963-69 (but that was all democrats)...(maybe)

I remember the scandals during the Clinton years with the republican congress and the corruption that went on. Under Johnson, i know less about the performance of the congress except in matters of civil rights. I will say that the Johnson years were pretty horrendous imo, but i was born in '64, and am only going by what i learned. I thought the Vietnam years were terrible.

It was but I was referring to the deficit at the time. (I should have said that)

That's another story. Under Kennedy there was the largest tax cut in the history of the country and the economy boomed regardless of the congress. In the 90's the dot com bubble hit and the administration nor congress can take credit. Deficits or a lack of deficit, tend to result not only from crazy spending, but also from a good or bad economy where taxes correlate to the prosperity of the society at the time.
