Republican Presidential Candidate in 1964 who ran against Lyndon Baines Johnson, and lost in one of the largest landslides in American presidential history. Barry S. Goldwater was his name.

I will leave the rest of it for others to reply to.

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.

I should know better than to mess with those people from Arizona.

I'm surprised no one seems to have caught the "daisies" comment.

LBJ ran a commercial on TV against Goldwater that showed a young girl pulling petals off a daisy, the sound faded to a man's voice counting down from 10 while zooming in on the little girl's eye. When the mans count got to zero a reflection in the girl's eye showed an atomic bomb mushroom cloud. Many people though the commercial was gutter politics but many also thought the commercial elected LBJ as President. I'm a liberal but I still respect Sen Goldwater as a conservative honorable man.

Oh yes, Barry Goldwater was conservative but was also a pragmatic politician. He served Arizona well as it's Senator and as a photographer. He captured many stunning images of Arizona with his tripod mounted Hasselblad.

Thank you. Bobby. I did not have a chance to see this commercial. After all, LBJ did not start nuclear war, he unleashed Vietnam war instead. This the way I remember him.
