Who is this guy Voight........??? Perhaps he should have used a teleprompter to delivver this little speech that he didnt appear to have written himself. His message sounds like the same good ole boy message living in the hearts of every day closet racist. Mr Voight, its okay, but you will have to let go of your White Male Phobia!! America is going to be just fine!!!!!
You know, ever since I heard about Obama, I had to wonder: what did actor Jon Voight think about him? Now I know. Thanks CNN for that wonderful coverage.
Forget it, Voight.
America is NOT the "great liberator" and should have never been put in this role to begin with.
I am tired of the expense and sacrifice that this country has made, just to have our borders overtaken by illegals and every anchor baby becoming a citizen. The fact that being BORN in this country to LEGAL parents means nothing anymore.
Go back to living in your glory days, Voight.
Nice to see someone standing up against Obama.
what exactly does Jon Voigt have to add to polital discourse in this country? I still have a clear memory of Mr. Voigt as the 'Midnight Cowboy'. Now he's preaching to me on the morals of a president who does not wear his apparently deeply held religious beliefs on his sleeve. I wish Mr. Voigt would attend to his own relationship with God rather then spend his time questioning someone else's faith. Of course, he part of that right-wing conservative cabal that navigates through the world and makes political hay by questioning the faith of others. I'm thinking that the last election was a message from the American electorate that this ain't workin'. Maybe Mr. Voigt didn't get the memo.
I don't believe I've ever heard Obama call himself a "prophet", the "Messiah" or anything remotely like it. Regardless of who likes it or not, he is our President and if he fails, so do the American people......Was the same when GW Bush was President. He did fail and so did the American people...............................
what's that phrase I'm looking for again.. oh yeah, shut up and act?
Voight is looney tunes. And to think, this is the guy the GOP chose to be the MC at their event. Very telling. Very telling, indeed.
God. No wonder his daughter won't have a thing to do with him. What an embarrassment to the human race. You have to be proud of your parents and respect them – who could be proud and respect this? Time for him to permanently join the unemployed has-been actors association.
My brain is bleeding – that was painful to listen to. "Only we..." excludes anyone who is different from him. I have a problem with that.
One time I would like to hear Voight say "everything Obama has recommended has been disaster" and actually point out specifically what he means. The man has been president for less than 5 months. Bush was president for 8 months when 9/11 happened. Was he a complete and total falure because he let that happen? Rhetoric without substance serves only to agitate the unthinking.
Both voit and gringrich need to stuff a sock in it!
The conservitive adjenda has put us into the mess we are in and it will take time to undo the damage 30 years of Regan economics to be repaired
America is not about a "owner ship" society where if your smart enough and willing to sell your soul to the almighty dollar you can get ahead on the backs of the rest of us!
good, cause we just don't have enough shooting from the hip about this new president
it is really to early to condem or to praise, but I do think all his hard work is paying off and it is improving, if only slightly
no, not a prophet, but we are very lucky he decided to serve, and he is doing a great job
Right ON!!! So nice to hear a voice of reason from a Hollywood person. Voight is a stand-up guy.
I think you just saw a Zionist at its best. God save us from people like him.
"We, and we alone are the right frame of mind to free this nation from this Obama oppression."
There's your problem right there. Thinking that YOUR way is the ONLY way!
Oh, and the false prophet thing, that's rich! 🙂
Someone needs to remind Mr Voight how we got into this mess. It really amazes me how the Republicans have a short memory.
Wow, Jon is really showing how egotistical people can be. I didn't know that we (americans) were the liberaters of the whole world. I must have missed that news story. He seems to think he knows everything, maybe it is he who is the "false prophet".
Where is Voight's pointed white hood? I bet he's off to have a scotch on the rocks with Cheney. These hateful bigoted old white men cannot accept defeat. Pathetic that.
Well, we have that, but what does Jon Voight think of Ted Kennedy? MN Governor Tim Pawlenty? Adam Lambert? There are so many unanswered questions.
And Voigt's an idiot who's own daughter despises him...
I haven't heard Obama saying he's come from God to carryout a religious mission. He's just like all other politicians and Presidents and promotes his ideas and plans. Nothing wrong with that.
Finally, someone has the nerve to stand up and say it. This man is a complete disaster. He has no clue on how the real world works. Obama is the real enemy of America. The next 3 1/2 years can't go by fast enough.
A right wing actor who supported Rudy Giuliani, of all people, is projecting "false prophet" onto someone else. Oh, the irony...
Quick, someone call Pat Robertson for another endorsement. LOL
What's wrong with Mr. Voight? Obame took the presidency in January 2009 ... and is he making this nation weak? ... What is all that about US conquering the rest of the world? .... What is he suggesting ... US should subgugate other nations? ... Is that the spirit of globalization? Respect to others? .. is Mr. Voight suggesting that the freedom Americans enjoy cannot or should not be enjoyed by non-Americans? ... Really, Mr. Voight ... what's wrong with you?
