Much of the show's humor came from raunchy or shocking humor contrasting or parodying the show's old-fashioned format. The President's CatchPhrase, above, spoofs the classic CatchPhrase from ''TheHoneymooners'', drawing attention to the blase disregard many old sitcoms had for domestic violence (it was played as if he had said something endearing, and was always followed by a cheering and laughing mock-StudioAudience). One episode employs a ''double'' ThreeIsCompany plot: George's canker sore prevents him from performing certain husbandly duties, prompting Laura to conclude that age is starting to show on her anatomy, and when George overhears the ZanyScheme she contrives to address this problem, he mistakenly concludes that she wants him to euthanize their cat. There's even AnAesop at the end: Use your mouth, instead of beating around the Bush. As well as the sitcom plots, each episode did touch on a topical issue that was of particular relevance at the time (episodes revolved around the abortion debate, the War on Drugs, the Strategic Defence Initiative and oil drilling in Alaska), but these were usually used to add to the absurdity of the tropes of sitcoms rather than as the focus of satire. Most episodes had AnAesop that compromised on both liberal and conservative ideals, [[AuthorTract arguing]] that both sides have valid points and that neither is completely correct.

At the time, a show featuring a sitting president seemed like a novel concept, but it would only be the first of several large productions to feature George W. Bush as the main character. The animated series ''WesternAnimation/LilBush'' re-imagined Bush and his political allies as children similar to ''Film/TheLittleRascals''. Oliver Stone went on to make a feature film biopic of Bush before he had even left office. [[Series.DeadRingers Jon Culshaw]] took the idea for his short-lived ITV sketch show, which featured a series of sketches titled "My Two Presidents" that parodied sitcom tropes from the 1970's and 1980's.
