LBJ Witty Quote

March 5, 2018

In July 1955 Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson had a massive heart attack.  Doctors told him he needed to relax and take time to heal.  One of the rules placed on him in the hospital was that there would be a limit set on the numbers of visitors per day.   But more and more visitors came including some from the GOP.  The doctor felt he had to set his foot down and informed LBJ that the daily limit had been exceeded.

To that Johnson quipped, “Oh, now look, Doctor, your’e not going to count Republicans, are you?”
