Later on we knew that his favorite song was I love a Parade.
This guy did more damage to the fabric of the US than can ever be imagined.
We should never forget the ultra-lib McNamara advertising an airstrike which was outright treason with a loss of an almost entire squadron.
I drove through Johnson City, Texas a couple of years ago, and almost got nauseous.
Source - I worked at the LBJ Library for about a year. I would cue up the tapes on a reel-to-reel player, put on headphones, and, working a foot pedal to rewind, pause, or fast-forward, transcribe interviews that had been conducted with people who had known Johnson at different times of his life.
Most of the interviewees spoke glowingly, and fondly, of Johnson; even those who were critical of Johnson... And yet, despite everyone's best efforts, what emerged from this Citizen Kane-like mosaic of interviews was not a pretty picture. For nothing could gloss over the fact that Lyndon Johnson was an overbearing, ruthless, sociopathic, power-mad monster. He was politician enough to know how to charm when he had to, but the mask could easily slip, and often did.
He would dictate letters and conduct meetings while sitting on the toilet. He would fondle other women in front of other people, including his wife, Lady Bird. And, if he were walking past the White House swimming pool, he would suddenly strip naked, right in front of everyone, and jump in.
Agree. In my opinion, he is one of the worst POTUS we've ever had.
Yet, Agnew and Nixon bear more disgrace in their names than Johnson who did far more damage to America.
