He is a Manchurian candidate because he says stuff in private to close allies that he wouldn't dare to say to the general voting public.
A Manchurian candidate tries to hide his true agenda. The video of Romney proves that because he hasn't said anything like that in public before. If you show a video of Obama saying stuff in private, how different would that be from what he has said in public?
The funny thing about that video is that I totally agreed with what Romnry was saying. If you listen to it, what he was saying was that the GOP needed to moderate it's message and reach out to moderate and independent voters. And he was correct that, in terms of his electoral strategy, there's no point in trying to reach out to the 40-47% of voters who were going with Obama no matter what.
Unfortunately for him, his party ignored this plea, and decided to thumb their noses at moderates, and they got their butts kicked.
