Thread Name: BS: Party of Lincoln
Subject: RE: BS: Party of Lincoln
Actually, to be historically accurate it was Lyndon Johnson who started the "Southern Strategy" with his pushing the "Civil Rights Act"... Afterwards he said that in doing so the Democratic Party would be dead in the South for decades to come... So Lyndon put the "Southern Strategy" on the fewnce and all the Repubs had to do was open their eyes to the gift that Lyndon had all but gift-wrapped for them...
