The remake is a nightmare, but the original was excellent!

This film would have been more appropriate last night while the phony was babbling.

In the present, situation the title should be The Machiavellian Candidate.

Angela Lansbury was excellent in that movie - really, really evil.

Failure to learn the lessons of the past guarantees a repeat of history.

One need look no further than 30 January, 1933, Germany.

Which brings us... to the Delaware Candidate--

President Barack Obama is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being... I've ever known in my life.

Yes, dear, now turn your television over to Turner Class Movies... and catch the tail end of it or get the DVD from Netflix.

I would prefer that they be TEA Party Conservative republicans, though.

Gadzooks, virg-- Put the cat out for the night. This still from the film... has not been photoshopped!

And we though John Kerry... was just a harmless clown--

Amazing how Lansbury’s look never changed no matter what age she was. She personified what the evil Left is capable of, even with her own child.

So THAT’S why the ketchup scene was deleted from the Denzel Washington remake.

Well, I’ve known the basic story for years, but saw the movie - thank you - for the first time.

Obama is no Manchurian Candidate. He fully knows what he is doing - though clearly he has been put there by others.

He’s not a dupe, or under some brain control. He is an incompetent ideologue intent on destroying our country if he cannot create it in his image......either is destroying it of course. He’s a narcissist even more so than Clinton (both of them).

Will be interesting how the real Manchurian Candidate plays out. Won’t be like the movie, that’s for sure.......
