I was 32 when Regan won his first term, and remember the ridicule heaped upon him by the Press and the Democrats. The same thing seems to be happening today with Romney.
Jimmy Carter's Presidency was "almost" as bad as Obama's is today. Just as Carter was a fail on foreign policy, so is Obama. Just as Carter tried to run the USA economy on Keynesian principals and failed, so has Obama.
It's said that History repeats itself. Looks like that saying is true.
