I never thought anybody could have done more damage to this country than LBJ, until Obama.

In many ways, figuratively, LBJ is Obama’s Daddy.

That's exactly my sentiment. Carter is the usual analogy, but as far as damage done, LBJ wins hands down with his Vietnam policies and Great Society programs. He doubled down in Vietnam so he could get GOP support for his Great Society programs, but he had no strategy to win. He thought he could get the commies to parlay into a peace deal a la the armistice in Korea as if Vietnam was a peninsula!.
