Response to George II (Reply #4)

6. When he talked about days past, when he could even work "across the aisle"

 

with segregationist Senators like Eastland and Talmadge. They were actually Democrats, so that was a poor example of across the aisle. And he got his anti-busing bill passed with their help, so he opened this can of worms.

His staff had been trying to get him to stop telling this story, to no avail. Hopefully he'll stop telling it now . . .
