My favorite line from ‘The American President’

This film is mine and my Mum's favourite, mainly because of this speech.

It's not just one line it's the speech! This is the amended speech!

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. We've got serious problems, and we need serious people, and if you want to talk about character, Bob, you'd better come at me with more than a burning flag and a membership card. If you want to talk about character and American values, fine. Just tell me where and when, and I'll show up. This is a time for serious people, Bob, and your fifteen minutes are up. My name is Andrew Shepherd, and I *am* the President.

    Who is a threat to national security? Whose guns? Who are the serious people? Who’s Bob? Why does he need a membership card? Where and when? Once again, who are the serious people and who is Bob? Why did ‘Bob’ need fifteen minutes? And more importantly, who is Andrew Shepherd?

      Thanks Evan!! lol

      It’s a quote from a film! Bob is the guy who is running against the President in the election.
      Andrew Shepherd is the current president in the film.
      The speech is given near the end of the film when he realises that he’s been a plonker and lost his girlfriend.
