If it’s President’s Day in America it must surely be time to look at some quotes where US president’s may (or may not) have embarrassed themselves and their country.
After all, the President’s major constitutional and legislative role makes him the central figure for lawyers and so its only fitting that People Magazine’s “Unpresidential Quotes” be shown . . as we do here:
Ronald Reagan, for instance:
“My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.” – Ronald Reagan, making an off-camera joke. (His microphone was on.)
And (guess who):
“If I don’t have a woman for three days, I get terrible headaches.” JFK, perhaps?
The Most Famous President:
“If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.” – Abraham Lincoln
Which Commander-in-Chief liar?
“You don’t know how to lie. If you can’t lie, you’ll never go anywhere.” (Nixon)
