Re: Ignorant Press. . .
It's pretty well established that no matter who the president is, while he's in office everyone says he's terrible. Based on people's reaction at the time, you would think we haven't had a halfway decent president for at least 40 or 50 years. JFK was probably the last one who anyone thought was doing a good job while he was in office, or maybe even then the critics were everywhere. I wasn't alive, so I wouldn't know.
