The clip confusing speech from The American President (1995) with Samantha Mathis, Michael Douglas Liberty's moving. The 10:15 event's been moved inside to the Indian Treaty room. 10:15 is American Fisheries? Yes, sir. They're giving you a 200-pound halibut. Janie, make a note. We need to schedule more events... where somebody gives me a really big fish. Yes, sir. Janie, I'm kidding. Hey, Cooper. Morning, Mr. President. Mr. Rothschild asked to have a moment with you this morning, sir. Is he upset about the speech last night? He seemed concerned. It wouldn't be a Monday morning unless Lewis was concerned... about something I did Sunday night. You skipped a whole paragraph! And Monday morning it is. "Americans can no longer afford to pretend they live in a great society-" And then you dumped the whole handguns paragraph. This is a time for prudence, Lewis. But, sir, that was the kick-ass section. Well, I thought what with being president and all- I didn't mean to imply- I thought you'd be turning cartwheels this morning, Lewis. 63% job approval. That is good news, sir. Morning, Mr. President. Morning, Charlie. Sir, the press is gonna need an explanation. For what? Because you dumped the whole section. Now we've got this thing hanging out. There's this thing hanging out? "Americans can no longer afford to pretend they live in a great society-" And then nothing. No explanation, no context. It's just this thing. And it's hanging out? Yes, sir. Maria. Good morning, sir. I'm gonna need- Overall consumer spending and not just first homes? We'll have it for you in 15 minutes. Thanks. Mr. President, I really feel- However much coffee you drink, I want you to reduce it by half. I don't drink coffee, sir. Then hit yourself with a baseball bat. Yes, sir. Happy birthday, Laura. Laura, happy birthday. Thank you, sir. I should send her some flowers. You already did, sir. Good morning, Mr. President. How are you today, Mrs. Chapil? Fine, sir. Mr. Kodak left a detailed breakdown of the approval poll for you. He seemed to indicate that it was very good news. Sixty-three percent of it, at any rate. Lucy called just a moment ago. You forgot to sign her permission slip. Ah, the museum trip. I'll go get it, sir. What time is she getting home? 3:20. How's my afternoon look? Very crowded. Schedule some time at 3:45.

The clip confusing speech Part 2 from The American President (1995) with Michael Douglas, Anna Deavere Smith Too-tall McCall! So how was Mexico? I didn't appreciate it until I came back... and discovered that America isn't a great society. He dumped a whole section. Now there's this thing hanging out? Not a great society, sir? With you out of the country, it wasn't. Now that you're back, we're great again. There's a pressroom full of people saying, "What did he mean by that?" A.J., did you get one of these? The letter from Solomon at the G.D.C.? It appears to be a letter from the entire environmental community. These people are out of control. Well, they're frustrated. Are they blaming the president for global warming? They don't think he caused it. I'm on the phone with them twice a week. I honestly don't know what they want at this point. They want a 20% reduction in fossil fuel emissions. It won't pass at 20%. Well, we haven't really tried. McSorley, McClusky and Shane hold too many markers. If we try to push this through and lose, there will be a very loud thud... and that's not what you want in an election year. Talk to the G.D.C. again. Tell them the president resents the implication... he's turned his back on the environment. I'll send 455 to the floor, but I'll ask for a 10% reduction. If they want to pull their support, fine. With a 63% job approval rating, I don't need their help to get a bill passed. Good deal. Let's get going. Where's Leon? John, call Mr. Kodak and tell him the president's waiting. Sorry. My fault. Never mind, John.
