I remember when Goldwater ran for prez. If anybody too young to remember thinks conservatives are maligned now, they should have seen the garbage that was thrown at Goldwater. He was considered a crazy war-monger who would start a nuclear war as soon as he was sworn in. I was too young to vote at that time, but I can't remember seeing or reading any pro-Goldwater articles. Even the entertainment industry was solidly against him.
They pretend to like Reegan (since he was so popular), but they secretlty hate him since was so good at making conservatism look good and liberalism look bad
Naturallty, on the left, it's the complete reverse for GWB - they'll rant about how much they hate him, but they secretly love him for making voters forget about how good things were under Reagan.
