  • *"Everybody does it, that's what we say. So we come to occupy a moral safe house where everyone's to blame so no one guilty."* This is a beautiful script and mirror the Trump administration situation perfectly.

  • Don't forget: "I'm to blame." Those 3 words Jed Bartlett said *NEVER* came out of Trump's mouth since Day 1. Why? Because it was always Obama's fault. It's always the Democrats fault. It's *EVERYONE* else's fault *EXCEPT* his. The blame spreader and buck *PASSER.* Jed Bartlett was picking up the torch from Harry Truman, who always made a point to say: "The Buck Stops Here." 4 additional words Donald Trump has *ALSO* never said since Day 1. "The Buck Stops Here" -- Harry Truman (Sign kept on The Resolute Desk that became a staple of Truman's Presidency)"

  • Did the writers of The West Wing consider a pedantic person not annoying AF? Especially when "President Bartlett" was wrong on so many occasions with his stupid "did you know" diatribes. i.e. the new car smell is from the seat cushions not some coating on the instrument panel and Bach's "Well-Tempered Clavier" is among his most insignificant pieces etc. etc.

  • The KING and QUEEN was standing on the balcony of the castle gazing out at the thousands of a angry peasants the poor 97%, that were going to storm the castle and take it over with force using CLUBS and PITCHFORKS, because they were tired of the KING and QUEEN taking their rights away and not treating them with RESPECT. So the KING says to the QUEEN if we can CONVINCE all the PEASANTS out there with the PITCHFORKS that the ones with the CLUBS HATE them. I am sure they will start FIGHTING EACH OTHER and when they are done fighting whatever is left my army can surely DESTROY with ease . The RICH ELITE 3% love FUNDING EQUAL RIGHT MOVEMENTS to DIVIDE and CONQUER the POOR UNAWARE 97% vote counts to shift them to the ELITE side of 3%. WE THE POOR MUST WAKE UP and use our COMMON SENSE, meaning If the RICH ELITE PUPPET MASTERS of 3% and their PUPPETS In HOLLYWOOD, MUSIC INDUSTRY, SPORTS ATHLETES and tv networks owned or sponcered by them DON'T WANT A CERTAIN PRESIDENT, then we the POOR OF 97% MOST DEFINITELY DO WANT THAT PRESIDENT. THE ONLY WAY AROUND 97% of AWAKENED UNITED POOR VOTERS is they must DUE AWAY with the ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE. SO ASK yourself WHY THE LEFT IS WANTING TO DO THAT , and who is trying to STOP IT, THE RIGHT. The ONES trying to STOP IT is working for we the POOR OF 97%. PLEASE WAKE UP PEOPLE 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. "UNITED WE THE POOR OF 97% STAND , DIVIDED WE THE POOR FALL". IF the LEFT WIN they will TAKE AWAY The ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE, and that means we will never be able to UNITE OUR 97% VOTES ever again and the ELITE AND THEIR PUPPETS WILL RULE THE POOR FOREVER, and make us pay all the taxes while the ELITE PAY 0%.

  • First...Please realize that Pres. Trump is not the reason for this country been in the situation that it is. If anything he is the result. The result of the mediocres of the "real politicians" not doing what they needed to be doing. Second... What is Joe Bidden ofering to US becoming a President? Jus a super left liberal as a Vice-President, with a potential to become a President ( God Forbid ) Third: Look the issues on the table... beyond the candidate.. looks the views and ideals of them...

  • "What is Bartlet doing in retirement?" i really dislike those stupid questions. almost always asked to the ACTOR, too. unless you're Tom Hanks or Jack Nicholson or something - unless you're a veritable powerhouse of charisma and charm - it always comes off as woefully limp and _always_ self-deprecating (even when that wasn't the character in the least). it's that Hollowood Actor Thing - thou must always seemeth "down to earth" and "real."

  • 日本からでも見たいです。 I am a Japanese The West Wing fun.(please bear with my English. Besides, Google translation is not perfect) I love the show so much that I have the complete series DVDs. It is more than 10 years ago but still I sometimes watch episodes and every time I feel inspired to strive to be a little bit a better person. They all love the country and are dedicated, smart, hard-working and smart people with their own personal issues such as alcoholism, divorce, illness, a bad relationship with father, child trauma etc, which makes it easy for me to relate them. I love all the casting members ---especially DJ and I am so glad to see them.

  • I watched the first episode of West Wing. It looked like a quality show but getting hooked on a show is hit or miss and as much as I like the stars, it remains on the "maybe someday" list. In that first episode, Martin Sheen, as the president, gives an inspiring speech about the immigrants that are seeking asylum. That is the heart of the Democratic party. The heart of it is what inspires the giving of asylum. Though, I have to admit I don't know if the fictional president was a Democrat or something else. However, when you look at all the initiatives of the Democrats, the glimmer of asylum is in the ones I can think of. Maybe all political parties are protective. It is a matter of who or what they want to protect.

  • This is the drama that makes Americans think their votes count, and lets these elections be a chance to vent. The huffing and puffing is intense in this election, as much as the Vietnam war and Dr. Martin Luther King era. It should be obvious by now the answer was never blowing in the wind, and the words of the prophets weren't written on subway walls and tenement halls, because I know I'm not seeing the sounds of silence. guitar solo

  • What endears West Wing to me is that it was written with the assumption that Americans are intelligent enough to understand what they were saying. OMG, I TOTALLY would have voted for Jed Bartlett! He was the POTUS we need right now 💯. Imagine it, fewer Covid deaths, fewer incompetence in government, fewer scandals, fewer lies. I'd be able to sleep at night! I could once again be proud of my country. If only wishing made it so. At least we have a chance to head in that direction again when Joe Biden becomes our 46th POTUS (Please G-d!).
