8012 You've just seen me do the least presidential thing I do. (full quote)
8113 For the last several months Senator Rumsfeld has suggested that being president of this country was to a certain extent about character. And while I have been unwilling to engage in his attacks on me, I have been here three years and three days and I can say without hesitation that being president of this country is entirely about character. For the record, yes, I am a card carrying member of the ACLU ... but the more important questions is why aren't you Bob. Now this is an organization whose sole purpose is to defend the bill of rights ... so it naturally begs the question why would a Senator, his party's most powerful spokesman and a candidate for president choose to reject upholding the constitution. Now, if you can answer that question folks than you're smarter than I am ... because I didn't understand it until a few hours ago. America isn't easy. America, is advanced citizenship ... you've got to want it bad ... because its gonna put up a fight. Its gonna say you want free speech? Then lets see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. Its gonna say you want to claim this land is the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that; defend that; celebrate that in your classrooms ... then you can stand up here and claim that this is the land of the free. I've known Bob Rumsfeld for years and I've been acting under the assumption that the reason Bob devoted so much time and energy shouting at the rain was because he simply didn't get it. Well, I was wrong, Bob's problem isn't that he doesn't get it, Bob's problem is that he can't sell it. He is interested in two things and two (full quote)

  Sir, I'm a little intimidated by my surroundings and yes, I have gotten off to a rocky and a somewhat stilted beginning, but don't let that diminish the weight of my message. The GDC has been at every president for the last decade and a half that global warming is a calamity, the affects of which will be second only to nuclear war. The best scientists in the world, have given you every reason to take the GDC seriously, but I'm gonna give you one more. If you don't live up to the deal you just made, come New Hampshire we're going to go shopping for a new candidate. (full quote)
  By the way, I forgot to mention today what a nice ass you have. (full quote)

  1: You know what your problem is? 2: What's my problem? 1: Sex and nervousness. 2: Sex and nervousness is my problem? 1: Yes. Last night when we were in the Dish Room, I realized that those place settings were purchased by the first ladies, and I'll bet that none of them were nervous about having sex with their president husbands. And do you know why? 2: No, but I'm sure you'll explain it to me. 1: Because they weren't presidents when they first met them. 2: Ah. 1: That's not the case here. 2: No. Can I use your bathroom? I just want to freshen up. 1: Right down there, and on your right you'll see a closet, and if you feel comfortable, you can take off your coat. I'll fix us a drink, and I will explain to you my plan. 2: You've got a plan? Don't make me wait! You're on a roll. 1: All right. You're attracted to me, but the thought of physical intimacy is unnerving because you only know me as the President. But it's not always going to be that way, and the reason I know that is because there was a moment last night when you were with me and not the President. So, Sydney, I'm in no rush. We're going to slow down, and when you're comfortable, that's when it's gonna happen. (2 enters in nothing but one of 1's shirts) Perhaps I didn't properly explain the fundamentals of the Slow-down plan. 2: No, you explained it great. 1: Are you nervous? 2: No. 1: Good. My nervousness exists on several levels. First, and this is in no particular order, I haven't done this in a really long time. Second, any expectations that you might have given that I am the...well... 2: The most powerful man in the world? 1: Yes, that comes with the office...I mean, if this were Eisenho (full quote)

Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating, at the top of his lungs, that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free, then the symbol of your country can't just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest.

14588 Tomorrow morning the White House is sending a bill to Congress for its consideration. It's White House Resolution 455, an energy bill requiring a 20 percent reduction of the emission of fossil fuels over the next ten years. It is by far the most aggressive stride ever taken in the fight to reverse the effects of global warming. The other piece of legislation is the crime bill. As of today it no longer exists. I'm throwing it out. I'm throwing it out and writing a law that makes sense. You cannot address crime prevention without getting rid of assault weapons and handguns. I consider them a threat to national security, and I will go door to door if I have to, but I'm gonna convince Americans that I'm right, and I'm gonna get the guns. (full quote)

33944 This is your time, Sydney. You're sitting at the grown-ups' table. You have a chance to get everything you want... run a national campaign, be a major player inside the party. But this relationship had better go all the way, because with the leader of the free world there is no halfway. Politics is perception, and if thing don't work out, the amount of time it'll take you to go from being a hired gun to a cocktail party joke can be clocked with an egg timer. (full quote)
33944 1/_How do you want me to handle the Sydney issue? 2/_The Sydney issue? 3/_We should have a consensus on how the White House is going to handle it. 2/_I sure hope the Sydney issue refers in some way to a problem we're having with Australia..... (full quote)

33944 1/_You got something to say to me? 2/_Respectfully, sir. I think we should examine the new poll for more than its value as a box score. 1/_Examine what? They don't like that I'm going out with Sydney. 2/_It's not that simple, sir. I think this poll helps bring a murky problem into specific relief. 1/_Whose problem we talking about, Lewis? Yours? You worried about your job? This poll isn't talking about my Presidency. This poll is talking about my life. Two hundred and sixty-four million people have decided..... 1/_Two hundred and sixty-four million people don't give a damn about your life. They give a damn about their own! 3/_All right, that's enough. 1/_Mr. President, you've raised a daughter almost entirely on your own, and she's terrific. What does it say to you that in the last seven weeks, 59 percent of this country has begun to question your family values? 3/_The President doesn't answer to you, Lewis! 1/_Oh yes, he does, A.J. I'm a citizen, this is my president, and in this country it is not only permissible to question our leaders, it is our responsibility. But you already know that, Mr. President, because you have a deeper love of this country than any man I've ever known, and I want to know what it says to you that in the past seven weeks, 59 percent of Americans have begun to question your patriotism? 2/_Look, if people want to listen to Bob Rumson.... 1/_They don't have a choice! Bob Rumson's the only one doing the talking. People want leadership. And in the absence of genuine leadership, they will listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership, Mr. President. They're so thirsty for it, they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand. 2/_Lewis, we've had Presidents who were beloved, who couldn't find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight.

38880 My name is Andrew Sheppard, and I AM the president of the United states. (full quote)
47489 For the last couple of months, Senator Rumson has suggested that being President of this country was, to a certain extent, about character. Although I've not been willing to engage in his attacks on me, I've been here for three years and three days, and I can tell you without hesitation that being President of this country is entirely about character. For the record: yes, I am a card-carrying member of the ACLU, but the more important question is, Why aren't you, Bob? Now this is an organization whose sole purpose is to defend the Bill of Rights, so it naturally begs the question: why would a senator, his party's most powerful spokesman and a candidate for President, choose to reject upholding the Constitution? Now if you can answer that question, folks, then you're smarter than I am, because I didn't understand it until a few hours ago. America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You've gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say, You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center-stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the land of the free. I've known Bob Rumson for years, and I'd been operating under the assumption that the reason Bob devotes so much time and energy shouting at the rain was that he simply didn't get it. Well, I was wrong, Bob's problem isn't that he doesn't get it; Bob's problem is that he can't sell it. We have serious problems to solve, and we need serious people to solve them.

dsharp what I did tonight was not about political gain. But it can be, sir. what you did tonight was very presidential. Leon, somewhere in Libya right now there's a janitor working the night shift at the Libyan Intelligence Headquarters. He's going about his job 'cause he has no idea that in about an hour he's gonna die in a massive explosion. He's just going about his job 'cause he has no idea that an hour ago I gave an order to have him killed. You just saw me do the least presidential thing I do. (full quote)
deshep No, it's just that we had a nice couple of minutes together. She threatened me and I patronized her and we didn't have anything to eat, but I thought there was a connection. (full quote)
