What an easily disprovable statement.

Aw c'mon fairmon. You're a bit smarter than that. Do you really believe that people who use drugs are purposely avoiding applying for benefits?
There have been studies performed in areas where no mandated testing is done, and the percentages have always been at 4% or less.
Rickaroo, bravo to your 1:38 pm post. You echoed what I have been stating for years.
Spot-on, to say the least!!

I don't know it to be accurate at all. It is merely a rumor that he said it. It's more possible than not, but I prefer to believe that a sitting President would have more couth than to utter such a thing, so I am giving him the benefit of doubt.
"Why nit pick it just because you can?Johnson was a lowlife scum sucker!"
He certainly is not a favorite President of mine, that's for sure.
"Has nothing to do w/Obama so give it up!years ago i read an account of this where a big shot reporter heard Johnson say this!That has since dissapeared from the web!"
Nothing against you, but it is a rumor and in the absence of any proof that he did indeed say it, I simply prefer not to mar the reputation of a man who is no longer able to defend himself.
As I did offer earlier, it is entirely possible that he did say it, and it is in line with other provable quotes that do exist, but that one does not appear to be a provable quotation attributable to Lyndon Baines Johnson.

jesse stated that all one had to do was to Google the quote and all would be revealed.
I did that and no confirmation can be found.
You're the master of Google found masterpieces and it's hard not to notice that you did not find anything either, or you would have loved shoving it in my face.
The man may well have said it, but there is no proof to be found that he did, so it remains a rumor, despite your best attempt to muddy the issue with additional quotes of his proven bigotry.
I'm quite sure the man was a Dixiecrat, as were many Southern Democrats prior to the mid-1960's. Several exited for the Republican Party, many left politics altogether, and the rest hve seen the error of their ways and changed their views.
Any quotes of Democrats prior to around 1965 is quite pointless, for that Democrat party is quite dead and their views have changed tremendously.
jt wrote: "Your links do not show that I misquoted Obama and in fact show their correctness."
Then you need to learn to read. Context is everything when offering a quote. When a quote is taken out of context, it's meaning is altered.
You are a master of taking quotes completely out of context and copying and pasting those of others.
Thus, your points are highly irrelevant, as they always have been.
It's your time to waste.

We all have our opinions. There are a couple of people who make it a habit to launch personal attacks and who cannot refrain from using offensive terms when they post.
This is strictly my own personal opinion, but such people deserve no response whatsoever because any point they may have to make, is lost the minute they lose their manners.
There is absolutely no excuse or defense for such behavior and there never will be.

jesse, I serously doubt that you could produce "first person accounts" of any such quote.
Googling the phrase as it is widely quoted produces no official, credible quote from the man.
Johnson was known to be a bigot and was once caught on a recorded phone call using the "N" word, but that was not the quote.
He may well have said such a thing, but there is no official quote to be found on any credibile site, and while it may very well sound like something he could have uttered, there is no record anywhere to back it up.

Since the night after my leg was amputated, I have become very aware of that undeniable fact. I'm so glad that God didn't honor my request, even though at the time, I was very much in distress. It seems rather silly today, for my future is very much bright and I'm determined to recover from this.
"Praying for you Al."
Thank you very much Ma'am. You're good people, even when we disagree and you could strangle me.
