He was described as Machiavellian.
Came from the South. Not a lot of Education. Schmoozed and worked his way up. A real politics man.
DJ ROBO BISCUIT watched this nice documentary about THE BOOGIE MAN himself Lee Atwater. People described him as being like a Marsupial in appearance.
One of his greatest regrets was the comment about “Jumper Cables.” One of his political opponents had to get convulsive shock therapy as a kid.
People described Atwater as ahead of his time and he knew that “Perception was Reality.”
He was a more sophisticated version of Donald Trump (FAR more sophisticated). He was in politics to win. Even people who were around him admitted that he played “dirty politics” but you hired a guy like Lee Atwater because you were playing to win. You don’t have a guy like Lee Atwater on your team to get second place.
During his time, he was instrumental to the Bush family. Senior and Junior; HW and W. He was a master at “spinning” and shifting the focus towards something else. He was a mudslinger.
The story of Lee Atwater is interesting and tragic. He was successful but a little bit evil. Near the end of his life he tried to apologize and repent.
I recommend the documentary, LEE ATWATER THE BOOGIE MAN
