OBAMA's "I AM THE PRESIDENT" LINE STOLEN FROM MOVIE!
Daily Script ^ | JWB0581

Posted on 09/06/2012 10:14:26 PM PDT by jwb0581

If Obama's "I am the president" line from tonight's speech sounded familiar to you, it might be because it was ripped from Aaron Sorkin's "The American President". Toward the end of the movie, fictional president Andrew Shephard says "I am the president" in a line remembered by many who have seen the 1995 film.

Obama reaches new low, now ripping off movie scripts for ideas.

I thought it seemed oddly out of place when he delivered that line. It now makes sense that it was lifted from a movie. A speechwriter in inserting the line may have in mind how effective it worked in the movie, but that was under the conditions that were constructed in the movie and those conditions are not the same in a different setting.

It struck me as petty and unbecoming — it’s not the type of thing a president himself should need to say.

Aaron Sorkin later created the “West Wing.” But with all due respect to Obama, he ain’t Martin Sheen’s Josiah “Jed” Bartlet. Not even close.

I suspect his Administration won’t get that Hollywood scripted ending! Mercifully, the carnival show is over for four more years.

Didn’t the old movie, the Groove Tube, have a similar line?

Everything about Obama is fake and the media is finally noticing it..even Peggy Noonan is now saying this:

Noonan on Obama: “It was stale and empty. He’s out of juice...flat...somber..

From Carville to Noonan down the line..they are giving Obama horrible reviews of his “Worship me” speech

In short, the MSM is REALLY straining to defend Obama. Good luck, considering all the Romney commercials coming soon that will features lots of video and sound bites from the Democratic National Convention!

It struck me as to say-I am the president; respect me; trust me.

(in his ego driven mind) I couldn't believe James Carville was saying it was a win for the democrats/great speeches w/ Clinton helping Obama tremendously.

What did they expect him to say: “My chair is empty?”

If Obama had a real sense of humor (and brains) he would have come out and said.....

“I promise that abortions will be available for MARTIAN WOMEN too.”

Thanks jwb0581, was it just “I am the President”? I don’t see how it belongs to any specific movie thereagain I’m not a movie buff.

He’s really hung up on himself isn’t he...”I won” - “I am the President” - or in the words of Bill Clinton when he was on the trail for Hilary - “gimmie a break [Barack].”
