Sen. George Smathers ( D-Fla) flew back to Washington with President Kennedy from Florida on the weekend before the assassination. He recalls the President making comments like "I don't really want to go to Texas" and "I wish I could get out of it". These comments are in contrast to the recollection of Texas Governor John B. Connally, who said on another video that the Texas trip was JFK's idea.
