Based on his managing to find some way to work with the US Congress, he didn’t do all that badly.
You should remember (or at least, look it up. Hey, don’t trust ME, I’m one of the 53% that actually pays taxes!), that Republican Ronald Reagan had to deal with a DEMOCRAT House of Representatives, and a DEMOCRAT Senate.
And the DEMOCRATS, to this day, despise Ronald Reagan. They may admire his skills in oratory and practical politicking, but they absolutely despise Reagan the man.
Considering what he had to work with, he did damned well.
