The Sixties Left turned against LBJ because of Vietnam. “HEY HEY LBJ, HOW MANY KIDS DID YOU KILL TODAY?" LBJ was denied a second term because he lost the Left - he lost his base. You don't see this on the Right because rightwing voters are far more obedient to their Washington leaders. The Right - as rule - only protests a sitting Republican president after he becomes a lame duck. This is why the rightwing voters defended Bush in the 2004 election with all their might despite his MASSIVE spending. This is why they only turned on Bush and Big Government Conservatism after Bush became a lame duck. I have a Question Why are Republican voters so obedient to Republican Presidents? Why do Tea Party protests and GOP filibusters never happen with a first term Republican president? None of the GOP senators who filibustered Obama into paralysis opposed a nickel of Bush spending, which doubled Clinton's. Why? Why did the GOP congress pass the largest expansion of Medicare in the program's history? Why do they only care about limiting the size of government when there is a democratic president? Why did Reagan get a way with doubling the spending of Carter? Why did Bush get a way with doubling the spending of Clinton? Why are Republican voters so easily fooled by their own party? Why are they so obedient to their Washington leaders?
