Well, I'm not going to try to correct all the errors in this post, because this thread is about LBJ. Let's just remember that Oliver Stone produced movies. They are not documentaries. JFK is just like all of his movies; a story based on a historical event containing whatever he thought made a good story.

This site is a good source for debunking a lot of the conspiratorial bull surrounding the assassination of JFK, it's not necessarily specific to just the Stone film. I feel it's relevant as several posters in this thread believe LBJ was directly involved in the assassination.

By our neo-Puritan standards, fueled by the media focus on quirky sideshows, LBJ would be the center of a whirlwind of attention. He was bigger than life and subsequent Presidents look like midgets. There was not much that he could hide...his red nose was the size of Gibralter. I remember him picking up his dog by the ears and claiming it was good for them in spite of the yelping. Somehow he managed to wage a war in Vietnam, a 'war on poverty', and stumble forward on the Civil Rights front all at the same time with only one actual term in office. LBJ and Lady Bird were self-created Texas personalities back in the days of the state being Democratic. She was a force of nature, literally, and advocated preservation and restoration of native plants and wildflowers. She was never a shrinking violet and had serious clout in her own right. We pretend that we don't like the back-slapping, baby-kissing, smoke-filled room, arm-twisting politicians like LBJ but those guys (and some women) got things done in those days.
