    Its offical. Jon voight lost his ever loving mind. What is he talking about? The United States needs to be more soft-spoken but carry a big stick!. We saw what 8 years of arrogance and cowboy talk got us. Two wars that we cannot get out of. Two buildings at the end of my city that are on the gone and still not built again! Does he really think that blind talk with "i'm better than you mentality "is gonna get us anywhere. Oh wait! He's in hollywood so yes he does think that. Dont mistake kindness for weakness. A humble attitude for complacency! The President has us headed in the right direction. I spoke to Arab americans on the streets of NYC and asked them, in your opinion is the US doing the right thing in changing your views? And they agreed. Isreal is not our enemy. The rest of the mid-east is. Wouldn't it make sense to repair that first? He said that all of Mr Obama's policies are a disastor. Can you look around and look! We're already in a disastor! Can check up on your kids and grand kids and leave the rebel rousting to Rush!

    Why should anyone care what Jon Voight has to say.?

    Opression? He seems to be a legend in his own mind.

    Hilarious. The reformed "anti-war" guy now pushes military over diplomatic rationale. It seems to me that folks who avoided going to war when it was their turn shouldn't be allowed to play the "tough guy" role once there's no chance that they'd have to backup their rhetoric.

    How exactly is President Obama a prophet? He's a politician who has never claimed to be a religious leader. I think John has religion and politics confused.

    I can't express how much I enjoy being spoon-fed foreign policy by the wealthiest %2 of America. Is he doing his Jonas Hodges character from '24'? If so, when is he going to ice Hank Jennings with a crystal vase?

    Wow – Jon Voight is apparently a bit crazy. Too bad, I always kind of liked him as an actor.

    Seriously??!! What kind of ridiculous drivel is this?
    "Disastrous"?? What specifically has Obama done, that could be considered "disastrous"?
    "Obama oppression"? Geez!

    We Americans are seen as liberators? The great power for good? I guess Voight wasn't awake during the whole Bush adminastration. We've made MORE enemies because of Bush and Cheney and their war machine. America seen as weak? I think not! I think we'll be seen as more intelligent instead of STRONG arming everybody like the idiot bush did. When parents BEAT their kids instead of teach them, it only get's worse. We must use our minds before our guns. Obama a false prophet? How about "there are no prophets, just a leader who is trying to lead us with peace and intellect". Voight disapoint's me here. I won't be watching any of HIS movies for a long time. He sounds like a total pessimist.

    I love it when these old burned out actors come out and tell us what is right and what is wrong. Where was he the last eight years as we lost all touch with reality and invaded a country under false pretense? Where was he when our economy was in high gear to oblivion?
    Old actors will do anything for publicity………I’ve lost all respect for Voight and his artistic work.

    "False prophet"? Ha...amazing how similar the GOPers and the Taliban/Al Qaeda sound at this point, isn't it?

    John Voight, does not make sense sober or drunk. Let's see...here is a guy that didn't participate in the upbringing of his own daughter and son. Obviously, his drug abuse of the past has affected his judgement just like limbaugh. There is obviously no value on what he has to say since it is not base on reality.

    i swear, these religious nuts are becoming more and more psychotic as their organized faith is nearing its inevitable demise.

    Great. We get to hear that blowhard Jon Voight: obviously a relevant contributor to political discourse, as evidenced by his considerable senetorial (he was a senator in the Manchurian Candidate), defense (He was secretary of defense in the Transformers movie), and even as President of the United States (FDR in Pearl Harbor). He's also been Noah and the Pope, so I guess he's in the know when it comes to "false prophets."

    Frankly, I'd be much more interested in the opinions of someone that has actually served in these capacities instead of an impersonator like Mr. Voight. Or at least someone like Ernest Borgnine.

    The truth hurts. Friends of mine that voted for Obama are even admitting their mistake. He is on tracking for doing more harm than any president in my lifetime.

    Gee Voight...why would anyone care what a has been like you thinks? To start with your analysis is correct because only a few Republicant losers like you call Obama a prophet. Since Obama isn't a prophet I guess you can call him a false prophet you moron. Find some new ideas to help your country instead of rehashing old loser Republicant talking points. No wonder your party is falling apart. You're just a bunch of name callers.

    DA One, DA Messiah Oprah have been bragging about is as FAKE as gold plated necklace sold in the sidewalk. Hussein Obama is articulate ONLY with TELEPROMPTER, without it, he's a fumbling idiot who doesn't know if he's coming or going.

    The HIGHLY educated UNDERACHIEVER voted for him because they believed they're entitled to anything their overly educated mind can think of without working hard for it. 60 million Americans voted for the FOOL ON THE HILL and boy! They"re paying a high prize for their foolishness.

    The lazy voted for Hussein and expect the rest of hardworking Americans to support them while they make their butts wide as four axe handle.

    Hussein Obama is ten times WORSE than Jimmy Carter.

    It was only a matter time before we would all see Jon Voight finally lose his mind. Voight has managed to offend the majority of this country that voted for change. He is a prime example of white paranoia that is evident in this country and especially in the GOP these days. The white majority they knew and enjoyed has been sent to the trash heap by a larger much more multicultural group in this country. Voight is an actor so one can understand his false sense of reality. With his choice of acting jobs these days it is apparent he would want to revive his failing career. A bunch of old dried up white men looking up to Voight and Sara Palin for salvation. Gingrich calling for inclusion is laughable standing in front an all white crowd. The GOP will be seen in the same light as the all white political party in South Africa. Save your money, boycott Hollywood and Jon Voight films in response.

    An Actor making an accusation like "False Prophet" is an oxy-moronic statement. Your life, your family have alot to say about you and how serious your opinions are taken politically and personally. What have you done for the system that remotely matches President Obama's effort to bring America back from reccession and world opinion bankruptcy. How can your children compare to those of Obamas? Your wife? Please know that just because you are an actor, doesn't give you automatic political correctness. Some actors are losing credability with political allys and showing their lack of political education and experience, and you even more after such a statement. You appear fool hearty and have no ground to stand upon. Though opinions are allowed, you have just put your foot in yours!

    No one but the detractors have labeled him a 'false prophet'. Eight years didn't work out, did they? Give this guy a chance.
