Republican Presidents Palled Around with Despots, Constantly

Barack Obama's been catching flack for getting intimate and flirty with Hugo Chavez at some summit this week. But Republican presidents loved their communist "key parties" even more.

Nixon had a big orgy with Mao Zedong. And it turns out every Republican president since the dawn of the Soviet Union has cozied up intimately to some red tyrant, for kinks, as seen in this lovely photo gallery.

But Barack Obama is not allowed to sit down with anyone remotely hostile to the U.S., even if they pointedly lack nuclear weapons, because who knows if our president is even really a legal Christian citizen?
