LBJ made clear where he stood when it came to the BFEE
From 1973, talking about 1968:
So Johnson suffered the election in silence, swallowing his nitroglycerin tablets to thwart continual chest pains, endorsing McGovern through a hill country weekly newspaper, meeting cordially with the candidate at the ranch. The newspapers showed a startling picture of Johnson, his hair almost shoulder-length. Former aide Bob Hardesty takes credit for this development. "We were working together one day," Hardesty recalls, "and he said, in passing, 'Robert, you need a haircut.' I told him, 'Mr. President, I'm letting my hair grow so no one will be able to mistake me for those SOB's in the White House.' He looked startled, so I explained, 'You know, that bunch around Nixon—Haldeman, Ehrlichman—they all have very short hair.' He nodded. The next time I saw him his hair was growing over his collar."

According to Oliver Stone's movie, he might have even had a hand in JFK's assassination.
LBJ died when I was a kid, and I really don't remember him like I remember other politicians from my childhood, like Nixon or Ford. My parents didn't like him-my mom liked Humphrey and JFK, and my dad liked Goldwater and Nixon. Their mutual dislike of LBJ may have been one of the few things in politics they agreed upon.

Oliver Stone makes some fairly interesting movies, but JFK was a colossal, steaming pile of bullshit. Even Stone himself admitted as much back when it came out. Kevin Costner did some pretty good acting, as did Joe Pesci and Tommy Lee Jones, but virtually nothing in that film even remotely approaches the truth. Loose Change is more factually accurate than JFK. In the real world, Jim Garrison was a stark-raving loon, the Orly Taitz of his day, except that he managed to keep himself in office while he was pursuing his moonbattery. Welcome to Louisiana.
Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
