Great article - shed a tear.
"Consensus" is just another term for a group of butt hurt blowhard talking heads that were envious that the golden boy was soaring ever higher. Obviously your "consensus" didn't know **** to begin with.
"Lacking experience". LMAO! Like many things in life... the only way you relly get direct 'experience' is by actually doing the job.

Don't believe all the PR hype "... 'shucks golly-gee' simple-John made good in the big city didn't he" routine.
