*** The highest-ranking government official you meet, the Mayor of Midgar, is a Mayor Ineffectual. Shinra doesn't even bother to ''pretend'' to respect him, and he's openly under their thumb. He helps you out just to stick it to the man.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ThatsMyBush'' presented George W. Bush as a lovable President Buffoon who got into all sorts of {{Zany Scheme}}s that were more akin to what you would see in a sitcom than a political drama or satire (such as trying to get free cable, or [[TwoTimerDate attend two separate dinners at the same time]]). That's because the show wasn't meant to poke fun of the then-incumbent president, but at the sitcoms that dominated the '80s.

** President Jack Ryan was actually an action hero ''before'' he became President. He doesn't continue on to be President Action, though: the one time in his term that he's actually in the presence of an armed villain, his Secret Service detail physically restrains him from risking himself and arrests the would-be assassin. Although coming across as a MartyStu, Ryan himself lampshades in a rather GenreSavvy fashion how odd it is that he is so loved (which actually creeps him out a little), and why most of the time his idealism and reality don't mix. This is probably Ryan being Clancy's MetaGuy realizing what MartyStu Ryan looks like and reminding the audience that his AuthorAvatar isn't perfect, either.
