George W. Bush: My Nightmare Date with Tricia Nixon

By    |   Friday, 12 Dec 2014 12:56 PM

George W. Bush says he once went on a blind date with Tricia Nixon during his hell-raising bachelor days — and it was a complete disaster!

"I'm sure from her perspective it didn't go very well," Bush told the December issue of AARP Bulletin.

"I drove up to the White House in a purple Gremlin with Levi jean seats."

Bush — author of the new book, "41: A Portrait of My Father," published by Crown — admitted he was bit of a wild man back then, too unpolished for the daughter of President Richard Nixon.

"Yeah, boy, I was a dude and coming out of pilot training. I was a pretty heavy drinker in those days," Bush said.

"We went over to the Alibi Club, and I still remember knocking over a glass and the stain of red wine creeping across the oak table. I fired up a cigarette and she said, 'I'd rather you not smoke."'

That was apparently the last straw for Tricia, because, "shortly thereafter she said, 'Take me home,' and I did," Bush said.

"When I went back to the party, one of dad's buddies leaned in and said, 'Did you get any?' Not even close!"

In 1971, Tricia, the eldest of Nixon's two daughters, married Edward Cox, who currently serves as chairman of the New York Republican State Committee.

Bush wedded Laura Lane Welch in 1977, and went on to serve as 46th governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000, and 43rd president of the United States from 2001 to 2009.
