It just happens without fail.

R wage wars and kill people on both sides.
They mismanage the economy and crash the market.

The dems have to pickup the pieces and fix it.

Dr. Birx estimated that 200K Americans will die in the best case scenario.

So Trump called this a hoax, cut funding for CDC, shutdown pandemic response team, blocked Azar's request for $2B to get supplies, ....

I wonder if a Dem Prez had done the same, how will the republicans react?

I haven't really thought about too deeply how a democratic prez can do better than Trump, but the pattern is undeniable, a Republican prez consistently foocks up the economy in modern times.

I'd say both sides have equal number of car wrecks!  Neither is immune to stupidity.  Cheers!

Ah, but hasn't Trump set new ground for the level of corruption and incompentcy?

Interesting data on deficits depending on who controls Oval, House, Senate.

Table 5 is particularly interesting as it shows you which provides the marginal benefit (or cost) to each President. Bush (the 2nd), Trump and Reagan are the "worst offenders". Not surprising particularly with Bush, given post-911 military expenditures and bailouts during 2008 i.e. final year in office. Obama you can see benefit from a high starting position (again the bank bailouts) which were then repaid over his tenure. Trump's tax cut puts him in the red, but my guess is given the COVID spending, he will look historically the worst.

Yes, he has personally.  He's a complete moron...denying climate change, coronavirus...science in general!  Nepotism is at an all-time high in the White House.

But President's don't make all of the decisions, and he's had people smart enough, like most President's, to help navigate him through.  Just like Dubya.  That being said, just like Covid-19 is a 1 in 100 year event...Trump could be that 1 in a 100 President who really does screw things up badly.  Thus why he needs the oversight of Congress and the Senate like all Presidents.  Cheers!
