Sorry, I don't know how to post it here. It's not an image file, and when I tried to post it as the file address, all I got was the address.

I found it pretty interesting though to be able to compare what party controlled the WH, the House & the senate by year since 1945 to 2008.

Contrary to popular belief, most of the time (in modern political history) Congress and the President are at odds; that is, most of the time the same political party does not control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. Only 10 times (20 years) since 1945 have both branches of Congress and the Presidency been controlled by the same party.

However, most of the time, Congress has been controlled by the same party. The "odd man out" has literally been the President. Since 1945, the House and Senate have been controlled by different parties only five times (10 years). And there have been only two complete turn-overs of Congress since 1945: one in 1949 and the other in 2007.

Notice the Republican domination since 1981 -

Could that be part of the USA's problems?

2. Thanks for getting this posted here. Pub domination sure does
seem to be the logical conclusion. You can be sure if there had been predominately Dem rule, the Pubs would be screaming that from the top of every hill!
