NUMBER:1518
AUTHOR:Keith Wheeler (1911–  )
QUOTATION:Following the trail of some of these [President Lyndon Johnson’s financial] transactions resembles the action in a Western movie, where the cowboys ride off in a cloud of dust to the south, the herd stampedes northeastward, the Indians start to westward but, once out of sight, circle toward the north, the rustlers drift eastward and the cavalry, coming to the rescue, gets lost entirely—all over stony ground leaving little trace.
ATTRIBUTION:KEITH WHEELER and MICHAEL LAMBERT, “The Man Who Is President,” part 2, Life, August 21, 1964, p. 69.
SUBJECTS:Presidency
