    George Wallace, Hubert Humphrey, and Richard Nixon — blechh!

    ? Of course, I don’t know much about Hubert. He was likely critiquing.*

    Might’ve been defending Johnson’s decision not to run for a second term.

    *There is a lot of blaming everyone else. But Johnson felt the weight of not getting out of Vietnam. Johnson could’ve engaged in some blaming of someone else; Nixon [behind the scenes] had people tell the Vietnamese to wait until after the election to make a peace deal (that supposedly Nixon would give them a better deal).

    Republicans have gotten so good at blaming others that they do it ahead of time, accuse others of what they are doing or plan to do. Yes, especially Trump.

      … accuse others of what they themselves (Republicans) are doing or planning… or will have no qualms of diving right into if they like whenever they like.

    A devastatingly appropriate quote right now. 😳

    I don’t recall what air force base I was stationed at, only that it occurred in a hangar, when Humphry stepped off of his aircraft to make a speech. I didn’t particularly care for him, but I think he was born with words of wisdom in his mouth.

    Humphrey was once a terrific progressive who got tangled in the Vietnam mire and lost his way.

      A lot of politicians of that day got stuck in that quagmire.
