Unlike Olympus Has Fallen where the terrorists are North Korean, in White House Down the terrorists are Americans fighting against a black President who wants to bring peace to the Middle East.  It is clearly an attempt to paint conservatives as lunatics and racists, but what else is to be expected of a movie with Maggie Gyllenhaal.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton
