What, You Don't Love Us Anymore?

Remember the discussion about how the Golden Gate Bridge is the preferred target for destruction in movies these days?

Well, I was watching the trailer for "2012" (the Mayan-doomsday film with John Cusack), and the following landmarks are destroyed:

1. The Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio
2. The Los Angeles freeway system
3. St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel
4. The Eiffel Tower
5. The Washington Monument
6. Air Force One
7. The White House

Did I miss any?



And yet, NO GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE!

What gives?

Plus, the president in the movie is black. Like that's plausible.
