    All politicians are corrupt to a greater of lesser degree.

    I would have thought LBJ would have had a seat at that table.

    Russ Tice, a former intelligence analyst who in 2005 blew the whistle on what he alleged was massive unconstitutional domestic spying across multiple agencies, claimed Wednesday that the NSA had ordered wiretaps on phones connected to then-Senate candidate Barack Obama in 2004.
    .
    After going public with his allegations in 2005, Tice later admitted that he had been a key source in a bombshell New York Times report that blew the lid off the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping of international communications in the U.S. The article forced Bush to admit that the practice was indeed used on a small number of Americans, but Tice maintained that the NSA practice was likely being used the gather records for millions of Americans.

    LBJ isn’t in the same league with those three. Nor is OBummer, for that matter.

    @watmiwori,
    LBJ engineered full scale US military involvement in Vietnam and it’s fully admitted that that was more trumpted up than "W"’s little facade.

    America has not had a decent and honest politician since Eisenhower. They are are terrible people from Nancy – my-husband-sells-tanker-jets-to-the-USAF Pelosi to Obama to Reid.

    An good American kid would have to be nuts to join the US military to defend our government.

    It’s a finely drawn Oliphant cartoon, no matter what one thinks of its point of view. It’s as if the artist formed a picture out of a tangle of barbed wire.

    This “cartoon” is inappropriate and disrespectfull of everyone involved. No matter what anyone thinks of President Obama, show some class and dignity in saying so.

    ooo huffington post! Next time get it from the National Enquirer, it’s more credible than that left wing kool aid fest.

    Pat Oliphant, you have jumped the shark. Obama is nowhere NEAR the criminality of this league. Why don’t you *go back to* standing beside a table of leaflets displaying a poster of Obama-as-Hitler?

    I respectfully disagree. I’ve been reading Cato’s amazing biography of Johnson and the man was probably the most corrupt, dishonest, ruthless, and emotionally ill of all of them, Machiavelli’s Prince personified. The fact that he passed the most sweeping civil rights acts in history is part of the huge contradictions of life and shows us that life is not black and white but shaded with all sorts of grays. To me he was the greatest genius of politics and sort of defines the outer-most limits of the craft. I hope you pick up on these books; they’re epic and incredible.

    Why do you think Kennedy picked him as running mate? That is how you control Congress. You need someone who knows everybody else’s dark secrets to get them to do what you want. Biden tried it but he is not even close to what LBJ knew how to do.
    Dirty business politics. That is how it works.
