    this would put a new spin on Nixon's "Tricky Dick" epithet.

    I doubt it. Besides what self respecting gay would do Nixon?

    It seems unlikely. And yet... he did manage to reproduce.

    and next we’ll read that Obama had a gay affair with Tony Resko !

    But yeah, who knows. Many guys had bromances back in those days. When I first read the title I thought it was going to be Hoover as 'freind' and companion.

    Nixon hated us almost as much as he hated Jews, so it would be funny if it were true. You know, I would love to hear Michael Musto tell us who would be a good gay sex partner for Richard Nixon.

    From The New York Times obit for Charles (Bebe) Rebozo:

    Mr. Rebozo offered to take Mr. Nixon fishing but Senator Nixon, never a sport fisherman, had a pile of papers with him, which he continued to work on. ''I doubt if I exchanged half a dozen words with the guy,'' Mr. Rebozo recalled 20 years later. But that was enough to cement a friendship. They both liked Broadway show tunes, spectator sports and charcoal-broiled steaks. Mr. Rebozo even paid for a bowling alley in the White House.

    Supposedly it was Bebe Rebozo. I remember Nixon vacationed with him a lot, much of it down here on Key Biscayne. The ick factor is enough to make me gag.

    But of greater interest to me was a reference in the article to one of President Lyndon Johnson's aides getting caught having sex in a YMCA. For a few years a decade ago I also sometimes slept with a former aide of the late President.

    And the aide never convincingly explained to me why he left the White House early in Johnson's first term, to take a rather mundane mid-level job at one of the least prestigious government agencies in Washington, where he stayed until he retired. I wonder how many gay aides President Johnson could have had?

    Gives new meaning to this photo of Dick & Bebe, entertaining their cross dressing friend J. Edgar.

    And what's the deal with the poodle?

    And that shoe? Perhaps its the pool boy.

    Having a bromance is not the same as sexual contact.
    There have been stories on how Obama having same sex contact.


    Today or back in those days? You're a librarian correct? Then do some research and you'll discover what I'm talking about.

    LOL what a random accusation......it reminds me of those cheap documentaries like ' Was Hitler Gay ?!' Sounds like whoever dreamed this up was looking to get attention via shock tactics.

    On a side note though, I bet Nixon had a big dick icon_biggrin.gif

    Even the Tricky Dick had to get his freak going every now and then.

    Though I'll be a bit appalled in his choice of men if the rumour(s) are true.
