I took the GOV4A exam in 2016. For the question about whether the modern presidency is one of vulnerability not strength, I discovered that modern presidents are from FD Roosevelt onwards. To get high grades, the examiners like to see loads of examples. For this you could talk about Congress reasserting its authority after Nixon's involvement in Watergate, leading to scholars suggesting that post-Watergate presidencies, particularly Ford and Carter, were relatively weak, Clinton's defeat of his healthcare proposals by his own party, Obama failing to persuade Democrats to vote for gun law reform, and the Senate refusing to hold a hearing on his Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland in 2016. They will probably now want to see Trump mentioned as well. The failure of his skinny repeal of Obamacare which came down to one vote, McCain, might be worth mentioning.I'd then probably challenge the question too, as presidents usually show signs of strength in times of war, depression, and crisis, with Roosevelt being the best example of such a president. George W Bush also showed strength after 9/11 with the Patriot Act, signing statements, and Congress passing much of his legislation.Hope this helps

Save that for GOV3A mate,
“In the past the two main parties were organistionally weak and in ideological decline”. 2017

Why are US parties often described as weak organisations, and how accurate is the description today? (30 marks) 2011

Assess the extent to which the two main US parties may still be characterised as organisationally weak and in decline. (30 marks) 2013

IVE been stuck on these 3 30 markers, has anyone answerd them, and got current affaries within them - if you have anwerd one of them then PLEASEould you send it to me because i learn from reading 30 mark questions and am really struggling with answering the organisatioanlly weak and in decline ones
THANK YOU
