There is nothing less presidential than constantly whining about the “mess” you “inherited” from your predecessor. Has there been any precedent for such rhetoric in the “old days” (which for this purpose I shall define as mid-20th century and earlier)? Are there any students of presidential politics out there who can point to any examples?
