I don't know. I think he really just wanted the ultimate in power, the Presidency, at any costs. I believe he did not run for a second term because he knew his popularity would not allow him to win. Its been a while since I have read up on the asassination, though, so anything is possible. At any rate, yes I believe LBJ had a big role in the murder of JFK.

he walked away and never pursued second term. why go to all that trouble? revenge for embarrassment?
if that was the only reason then it was just a murder, right?
what was the motive and why did these others play along and give up their lives in the process?edit on 21-12-2010 by aliengenes because: (no reason given)
As the historian, Robert A. Caro has pointed out in Lyndon Johnson: The Path to Power: "Texans were elected on December 7, 1931, not only to the Speakership of the House but to the chairmanship of five of its most influential committees, Lyndon Johnson's first day in the Capitol was the day Texas came to power in it - a power that the state was to hold, with only the briefest interruptions, for more than thirty years."

It's the mean old Bush clan rearing it's mean old ugly head once again just in time to deflect from all the current Obama screw ups.
How convenient, yet not surprising, this Bush love to hate relationship.
If eL B.J. was involved in Kennedy's death it was because he had the hots for Ms Camelot.
... but you still have to respect a President who doesn't have a problem taking a dump, literally, while he's cracking th whip on his underlings.
