GW: [ducks] "Oh goshdarn Dick Cheney, I thoughted that theys throwin shoes again."
Bill Clinton: "[Bites lower lip and squints into camera] It depends on what your definition of 'lie' is."
GHWB: "Read my lips: [vomits into lap of stenographer] no more lies."
Reagan: "Why you little punk. Mr Gorbachav, tear down that bastard!"
Carter: "All the major parties shall bring about the consummation of the [pulls out the tampon from between his legs which he sets on the podium] reformation."
Gerald Ford: "...I'm glad you raised that concern. In the case of Helsinki...aw, hell, this job sucks ass."
Nixon: "You goddamn cocksucker Jew-Bastard! I will prevail over all you mother-fuckers! Checkers, attack!"
LBJ: "You are letting our boys down. You are letting our boys in Vietnam down. [Unzips pants, removes penis] Look, you're not going to win this fight. Look what you're up against. [Addressing penis] Who is bigger, you or Joe Wilson? That's right."
