Need help on Q's about the movie "The American President"?
In The American President, Micheal Douglas Plays a president who has to make some difficult decisions. In the foreign arena, he decides to bomb Libya. Why? Why is it a "proportional response"? Why does the president tell his pollster that "this is the least presidential thing i do"? In the case of the domestic agenda, there are two major bills that the president is planning to send to Congress. What are they? Why are the "Motown 3" so afraid of the fossil fuel package? Why is it that if you support "gun control" you are seen to be weak on crime? Why does the president think it shouldn't matter that his political opponents have a picture of his girlfriend and a burning flag? Why, near the end of the film do a large percentage of the American people come the question the President "family values"? What is the ACLU? Why does the President say Bob Rumson should be a member? How does his speech to the press at the end change the speech intended for the State of the Union? That is all the prompt says...It would really help alot, thanks!
