There was a book called “A Texan Looks At Lyndon” published around 64-65 which claimed the same. I loaned the book to someone and never saw it again.

It was a creditable effort, but probably all conjecture.

I heard this on the news this morning. Also said she had an affair with William Holden while living in the WH. Crazy.

Reaffirming once again that the Kennedy assassination is a Rorschach test for minds disconnected from reality.

Only a fool would have not placed Lyndon Bird at the top of the suspected list.

Having said that, Jackie was so smart she thought Marilyn and Jack were pinochle partners. While Rose thought her husband was being taught manners by Gloria.

Camelot wasn’t a dream: it was a nightmare.

When it comes to really bad Presidents, LBJ is easily in the top 5. He was a piece of garbage on all levels.

Johnson handling a heckler.

Good point. Though I do believe Oswald had some help.

This was discussed briefly after the interview, in the media, if remembering correctly. Could be the reason she (took the little ones) left the USA and ran to what she considered, at the time, safety. lbj was a ruthless character.

The article itself, unlike the the title of the post, makes it plain that ABC, current holder of the tapes says the tapes reveal no such thing.

Look, we have to face it. Jackie O was no rocket scientist. Listen to her speaking,,, she is a typical girl from the world of debutants and finishing schools. Not real bright,,

We didn’t have the internet at that time for communication, but while talking with friends and relatives then, I remember everyone thinking the same.

I remember some people, looking at pictures and videos of LBJ and while he was taking the oath, saying, “It looks like he’s smiling.”

I was 10 years old at the time, and the first thought I had was LBJ was behind it. A remarkable insight, or too many TV shows where the “Butler did it” is up to the interpreter.

which is why we will never stop talking about the JFK assassination. The list of possible suspects with motive reads like the Manhattan White Pages.

Yeah, he’d pick up “Him” and “Her” by their ears, making them squeal in pain, with that big Texas grin, another time lifting his shirt and showing off his operation scar to gross out the Washington press. That guy had little to no class. Corrupt, arm twisting, micromanaging bastard. His White House tapes sounds like he consider the Legislative Branch his own branch under his power. Very bad for the country, miscalculation after miscalculation on the War. Bad Texan. Bad man.

I’ve always thought this. I lived in Dallas during that horrible time———and then we got LBJ who had already taken all he could from us Texans...

We had one really good president between LBJ and the present, and he seems to be a distant memory these days.

I think the only thing that can save this country is a President Sarah Palin......

The video of Johnson aboard AF1 being sworn in has always seemed suspecious to me. I think the look on his face is one of guilt.

In the series THE KENNEDYS, LBJ was depicted as a scumbag behind the scenes, but in the open, worshipped Jackie O.

LBJ was an animal. He used to make staffers enter the rest room and take notes from him while he was on the john.

Sorry to be cruel, but Jackie Kennedy was a simply a dumb-as-rocks trophy wife for JFK, arranged and approved by Joe Sr. Her role was to play the well-dressed politician’s wife, and she carried it off very well.

I wouldn’t put too much faith in her powers of analysis.

Follow the money, always follow the money.

Who had the most to gain? How is it possible, that hours after the shooting, the lone suspect was found hiding in a theater? Seems just a little suspicious to me. HOURS later, not seconds, not minutes. Just ‘happened’ to be hiding in a theater - not on the highway driving out of town, not on a bus, not on an airplane.

Who was in a position to influence the outcome of the ‘investigation’? How convenient that the assassin, got killed while in police custody. What an unusual set of coincidence - why, it’s almost like it was all planned.

There was another picture of LBJ pulling on the ears of the beagles, I think, at the White House...

Also, I remember a picture of LBJ pulling up his shirt to show the result of an operation that he had...I think gall bladder...

Don’t care about Jackie’s analysis, I still thought and think LBJ had something to do with JFK’s assassination. LBJ was extremely power hungry.

LBJ was an evil SOB but wasn’t he in the car directly behind JFK and Gov Connolly? I don’t think he would have placed himself in the line of fire in the motorcade if he was behind the crime

Oh really!!Ask some highway patrol that was on duty when he was stopped for drunk driving and also speeding..I live in Texas and lived through the idiot life..He was never arrested since he was president and more than likely the records were cleaned and highway patrol was reprimanded..Even back then the media was taking care of their own Criminal politicians..

Exactly. If you were to believe the Warren Commission, then why not believe that LBJ was behind JFK’s death?

And why not believe in the Tooth Fairy too?

President Lyndon B. Johnson’s favorite drink may have been scotch and soda. He would ride around his Texas ranch in an open convertible in hot weather. He drank his “scotch and soda out of a large white plastic foam cup. Periodically, Johnson would slow down and hold his left arm outside the car, shaking the cup and ice. A Secret Service agent would run up to the car, take the cup and go back to the station wagon (following the President’s car). There another agent would refill it with ice, scotch, and soda as the first agent trotted behind the wagon. then the first agent would run the refilled cup up to LBJ’s outstretched hand, as the President’s car moved slowly forward.”

60. Joseph A. Califano, Jr., quoted in Presidential Vehicles. National Park service website, www.nps.gov/lyjo/cars.htm. Inexplicably, Mr. Califano, now head of the anti-alcohol National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA), does not criticize either the quanitiy of the President’s alcohol consumption nor the fact that he drove a vehicle while impaired, which was clearly illegal.

My father had watched LBJ swearing in. I remember my father told me that by the look in vice president’s eyes that my father knew Johnson had something to do with JFK’s death.
