Most film makers stay away from references to living Presidents dying unless it's a historical account (Lincoln, Garfield, Kennedy).

I remember there was a fictional "documentary" about G.W. Bush being assasinated as a result of the war on terror, and it caused much controvery and outrage from both parties, because no film had depicted the fictional death of a real character.

I think it's best in these movies to have fictitional Presidents. I didn't like it having Obama and Bush in the Transformer movies, as I don't think real world Politics has any place in a popcorn film.
