    LBJ almost shot hours after JFK murder (1963) -- agent confession

    In a new book, The Kennedy Detail, a former secret service agent admits to nearly shooting LBJ in the darkness of Johnson's home in the hours following the assassination of JFK earlier in the day:


    Quote from article posted on Yahoo!News 10/20 5:48pm:

    Instinctively Blaine picked up the Thompson submachine gun and activated the bolt on top. The unmistakable sound was similar to racking a shotgun. He firmly pushed the stock into his shoulder, ready to fire. He'd expected the footsteps to retreat with the loud sound of the gun activating, but they kept coming closer. Blaine's heart pounded, his finger firmly on the trigger. "Let me see your face, you *******."

    The next instant, there was a face to go with the footsteps.

    The new President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, had just rounded the corner, and Blaine had the gun pointed directly at the man's chest. In the blackness of the night, Johnson's face went completely white.

    Man, do you realize that if Johnson had been killed that day, that decrepit 73 year old Speaker of the House John W McCormack would have then become President??




    What a train wreck that would have been.

    I doubt it would've been worse than the "great society" that the bovine fecal matter spreading SOB from Texas managed to spew.

    I would rather take a liberal Democrat from Texas, than a liberal Democrat from Boston any day.

    And, since this thread has turned down a partisan political road, we've reached the proverbial dead end.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.
