    What movie is that quote from? (I can see the scene, I can't remember the NAME of the damned movie!)

    “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

    Lord knows.
    Obama's been plagiarizing speeches from 20 years ago, so anything's possible with his sound bites.
    We are such a simpleton community to fall for that kind of talk...your quote of his reminded me of this article's point.

    I'm pretty sure it's The Untouchables.


    Here is the link.

    Malone: You wanna know how you do it? Here's how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way, and that's how you get Capone! Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that?

    YES, The Untouchables! Thank you.

    Interesting that he quotes a movie about going after Al Capone when he's in Philly. I wonder how the Italian American population felt about that?

    It made me think of The Untouchables but not that line. Connery says something like "just like a wop, bringing a knife to a gun fight" right before Nitti kills him.

    Malone: You said you wanted to get Capone. Do you really wanna get him? You see what I'm saying is, what are you prepared to do?
    Ness: Anything within the law.
    Malone: And *then* what are you prepared to do? If you open the can on these worms you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they're not gonna give up the fight, until one of you is dead.
    Ness: I want to get Capone! I don't know how to do it.
    Malone: You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. *That's* the *Chicago* way! And that's how you get Capone. Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that? I'm offering you a deal. Do you want this deal?
    Ness: I have sworn to capture this man with all legal powers at my disposal and I will do so.
    Malone: Well, the Lord hates a coward.
    [jabs Ness with his hand, and Ness shakes it]
    Malone: Do you know what a blood oath is, Mr. Ness?
    Ness: Yes.
    Malone: Good, 'cause you just took one.
