A former colleague directed me to a University of Virginia archives of presidential audio tapes that while public for some time have not previously been examined.
Fascinating. Astounding. Historical. Listen to JFK call Chief of Naval Operations Arleigh Burke brainless. Listen to Don Rumsfeld laugh when Nixon uses the N word repeatedly. Listen to LBJ talk ethnic politics and lie about Vietnam.
Too bad Nixon ruined taping for his successors. Would love to hear how W. is really smarter than he sounds, according to his friends.
