Other mistake: Near the very end of the movie, Bush has a college baseball game on between the Texas Longhorns and the Miami Hurricanes. We see a Miami player rounding third and scoring at home plate. But the TV announcer says, "and Texas takes a 2-1 lead." With Miami doing the scoring, Texas can't be taking the lead at that moment.

Factual error: Towards the end of the movie, George W. Bush is seen walking through the Cross Hall of The White House towards what is in reality The East Room.

In the next shot we see W. coming upstairs from a winding staircase that doesn't exist.
