Movies in which the american president is painted in a bad light?

i was watching clear and present danger and it occured to me unlike in real life, the american president in movies is seldem incompetent, selfish and downright evil. can you remember movies which do not worship this particular executive position?

i can think of only a few:

clear and present danger
the day after tomorrow
all movies that portrayed nixon
