    Who is Jon Voight to be such an "expert?"

    Maybe he'd like to move to the West Bank and see what it's like to live under an occupation. To have the audacity and the stupidity to call President Obama a "false prophet" is a complete and total outrage. Maybe Voight prefers to see the world at war, all countries under siege and spiraling ever downward for the rest of his life. I do not.

    We just removed a group of zanies from power. We don't need Jon Voight to become the faux secretary of state.

    This really ticks me off. The sound bites hear disturb me greatly. Its not America's job to keep Israel safe. Heck we need to concentrate on keeping America safe. Mr. Voight should spend more time on mending his family bonds instead of bad mouthing the President. How dare he even utter this man to be a false prophet. Mr. Obama is not a prophet and has not claimed to be one. I am fed up with the right wing trying to make everything wrong in America and the world for that matter an obama problem. The Israeli Palestian issues have long been there and are not going anywhere unless both sides start to consider what they are doing. America doesn't owe Israel a thing. And i am sick and tired of everybody thinking that we should be running to bail them out everytime they decide to send a missle over the wall.

    Mr. Voight stay out of politics and go and make a movie.

    Sometimes nutcases shouldnt be given a public forum. Perhaps Mr Voight should move to Waco Texas...

    After all the complaining from the right-wingers about Hollywood actors, finally they have one they will agree with. Except, of course, for all the Hollywood actors they have elected.

    Jesus, all right-wingers are just psycho, huh?! I mean, Voight (the same dense, bull-headed jerk who wouldn't even speak with his own daughter for years, and still doesn't speak to her from what I understand-let's you know what kind of person you're dealing with) is so full of it it's not even funny. Obama's foreign policy so far has been a STANDOUT success. I mean give me a break. Why does it seem like every Republican lives in fairy tale land where they imagine these gallant fairy tale type battles of good and even where America is the ultimately ruler with God-like infallability? That's why much of the world hated America before Obama was elected. Killing people is killing people. Other people don't suscribe to your "storyline" and fantasy that you have in your head, they just know that you're murdering their brothers, their mothers, their children, with guns and bombs. That's bound to leave a bad taste in their mouth. Yes, sometimes war is inevitable, but give me a break with the fairy tale nonsense right-wingers.

    I'm sure all the anti-Hollywood conservatives will conveniently overlook the fact that Voigt is an actor. But really, this whole dinner was great for Democrats. The GOP proved once again that it has nothing to offer except criticism. That is not an alternative vision for this country. News flash to the GOP: the only people who are listening are the mouth-breathing 30% who thought GWB was awesome!

    Wow.

    This guy is on drugs. America the great liberator? After 8 years of Bush where did the Republican 'liberation' get us? Time for change.

    He should go duck hunting with Cheney.

    Excellent and truthful speech! Kudos Jon! I wish more Hollywood republicans would come out and speak the truth! The Obamanation in the White House must go!

    Perhaps Jon Voight needs to scold his daughter on how she stole another woman's husband. He needs to get his relationship fixed with his daughter.

    See this is why Republicans are not getting ahead. Too busy sitting somewhere behind closed doors name calling, acting like children. Why can't they put their idiotic sayings aside and start help to create jobs, programs, health care. It's call working together to help find a solution.

    An actor calling the president a "false prophet" is moronic–nothing more, nothing less.

    Actors, are entitled to their opinions. However, I think this guy is totally clueless.

    President Obama has been in office for less than 5 months and somehow Voight thinks he's been a disaster? Give me a break. I don't think Obama sees himself as a prophet. He's trying to clean up a real mess that he inherited. America is still committed to Israel however, it doesn't mean that we can't show a little more candor in trying to bring about real peace in the Middle East. Voight and his ilk clearly don't understand that a one-sided approach is fruitless, as history has shown.

    Now it's time for Jon to go back to the movies, or TV, or infomercials.

    Who cares what an actor thinks? And he's not supposed to be a ptophet, he's supposed to be the president. Come on people, this guy has no business discussing politics, he's an actor, his job is to pretend to be someone he's not. If the president is a false prophet then Mr Voight is a false Idol.....

    As far as the Gay Community is concerned he certainly is a false prophet. O.K. we'll cut to the chase, as far as the Gay Community is concerned he is an out and out liar. I hope the Obama people see this because read our lips: "We will be voting with our pocket books next time, not our hearts.'

    Why do all failed actors wash up in the GOP? Reagan, Schwarzenegger, Thompson, Voight .......

    I have always admired Jon Voight as an actor, from his earliest role in Midnight Cowboy to his latest role on "24", but his politics leave a great deal to be desired. If he wants to speak of false prophets, he need only look out into the audience from the podium where he made his caustic remarks.
