December 21, 1966. 7:09 PM. LBJ is exasperated after spending the day with the Democratic state governors at the Ranch. LBJ tells Dean Rusk (starts at about 2:00) that they were “all rambunctious… rather insulting and so was I, so we didn’t do very well.”
Their complaints are about domestic issues, poverty programs, civil rights and patronage, LBJ says. Rusk then reports on questions he received at his press conference, on anti-ballistic missiles, Vietnam, and Food for India program.
