I really detest Lyndon Johnson. As I've said before he was the most dangerous of politicians; a man with burning ambition and a strong sense of infallibility. In short a man who believed his own bullshit. Everything for Johnson was either a political problem or a messaging (PR) problem. Intimidate them or buy them off or run over them was Johnson's modus operandi because after he made up his mind the facts could go to hell. Johnson always got his way.
These kind of people are especially dangerous because they attract the stupid, the ignorant and the weak minded as flies to shite. Jim Jones, Father Coughlin, George Wallace, Bill Clinton...these kinds of people are so full of themselves people feed off their self confidence and buy into their ideas, often times ignoring their own interests and in some cases even their lives. And unfortunately the disease must be catching because we see the same kind of behavior today with the present administration.
So, did LBJ kill Kennedy? I doubt it simply because it would be hard to keep a secret like this for this long. But if you asked me if Lyndon Johnson were capable of such a thing, I would reply with an emphatic "Hell Yes! "
