In 1959, writer Richard Condon wrote a chilling thriller called the Manchurian Candidate. In 1962 the controversial film was released and had a brief airing on tv. On November 22, 1963, the Democrat JFK was assassinated and his VP, LBJ took over.

Later the rights to the film reverted to Frank Sinatra and the film disappeared from view or circulation. One side saying it was just neglect, the other side saying it was a conspiracy.

After the Democrat JFK was killed and LBJ had his time, a Republican just happened to take the white house after LBJ. Nixon then was involved in Watergate. (Watergate Burglars broke into the Democratic Party's National Committee offices on June 17, 1972.) Apparently someone on the Republican side had something to hide.

----------

Fast forwarding to 2004's presidential election. The movie The Manchurian Candidate for some reason was released again. This time alluding to all conspiracies surrounding Bush.

For those who haven't seen the film such conspiracy references are made:

Manchurian Global: Haliburton (Getting no bid contracts)
An election move to touchscreen computers, hinting fixed (2004 election)
An opponent that cannot win (Gore/minority or Kerry/young vp)

After seeing what has unfolded so far, the movie clearly was an attack on Bush. Manchurian Global is Haliburton and the pawn for them who in the movie was the mother, is Dick Cheney.

I saw both movies. I got the impression the remake just used modern day events to modernize the movie.

Where's the conspiracy here?

If you read my post you would see them. I specifically stated, such conspiracy references are made..and had a list.

You know someone spends time to write and create these threads before you chime in and say where's the conspiracy.

The whole book/movie is a conspiracy theory. What are you saying? That's really inconsiderate.

Uh, pardone me for saying this, but there was nothing in the 2004 remake the alluded to Bush at all.

In fact, if you notice Shaw was a democrat in the movie, not a republican (he has a stranglehold on the NE and Cali in the elections, needs help in the SE and MW).

This thread is just silly.

the character in the remake seemed to me more like kerry (ie dubious war hero and injured shoulder)
