Jon Voight: Barack Obama is a False Prophet

Jon Voight: Barack Obama is a False Prophet

Jon Voight blasted President Barack Obama at the Republican congressional fundraiser dinner at the Washington Convention Center on Monday (June 8) in Washington D.C. Here are snippets from the 70-year-old actor’s fiery speech:

“Are we supposed to sitting and waiting, watching for the possibility of a new Holocaust? Who’s going to take the responsibility to keep America, I mean Israel, safe. I’ll tell you why this really scares the hell out of me. Everything Obama has recommended has turned out to be disastrous.

“It saddens me greatly to think we were the great powerful good in the world. We as Americans knew America to be strong. We were the liberators of the entire world. We are becoming a weak nation.

Obama really thinks he is a soft-spoken Julius Caesar. He think he’s going to conquer the world with his soft-spoken sweet talk and really think he’s going to bring all of the enemies of the world into a little playground, where they’ll swing each other back and forth.

“We and we alone are the right frame of mind to free this nation from this Obama oppression. Let’s give thanks to [Republicans] for not giving up and staying the course to bring an end to this false prophet, Obama.”

    A failed actor and father. Angelina hardly gives him the time of day and rightly so, the man’s an oath. He needs to clean up his own backyard and shut the ‘F’ up.

    Dominica Says:

    well everyone is entitled to their opinion but the fact is that president obama has only been in office for 5 months so i think john voight’s criticism is excessive and frankly absurd. if he’d made a comment like this during the george w bush presidency, voight would have been slammed as “anti-american”. it’s nice to see freedom of speech is back in effect in the u.s.a. under president obama. for heaven’s sake, give the man a chance.

    Pattycake Says:

    I guess the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Voight senior and Voight junior (Jolie) both think by virtue of their celebrity fame that they can speak out about issues that they know very little about. At least Jolie keeps most of her stuff confined to photo opportunities of herself in foreign aid camps or attending international meetings (like the Hague) at which she glares her disapproval at the participants. They are both private citizens and entitled to their opinions but I wish they’d confine them to private moments.

    When did he become so “involved” in politics?! Everytime I look around Voigt is blasting someone about something that he probably knows NOTHING about. Just because you played the secretary of state in Transformers doesn’t mean you’re all of a sudden a political genius!

    a total fan Says:

    He is entitled to his opinions, this is America after all. Freedom of Speech. I have to give him credit that he is not afraid to speak his mind. But what he says is not necessarily what the majority thinks so I know he is going to be attack for what he said.

    A major “whatever” to this guy. Give Obama a chance. Does Voight think that Obama is a magician who could have changed America and the rest of the world within a week? Voight probably wouldn’t even manage it in his whole presidential career. I’m not even American but I’m so on the Obama’s side.

    Jon Voight sounds like a neoconservative nazi. Shut up and sit down. I think he got punched too hard during the making of “Champ”, great movie though. Is Angie letting him see the grandchildren yet or not? It would so do much for his demeanor. I think his trip to Israel might have come with a little brain washing, no?

    That silly old fool needs to take a nap somewhere.

    Not only does NO ONE give damn what he thinks, he’s being absolutely ridiculous. As for ‘the possibility of a new holocaust’ . . . is he serious? First he wonders who is going to keep America safe, and then he CORRECTS himself to say Israel. ISRAEL? You’re concerned about Israel? If this economy doesn’t get any better we won’t have the resources to help OURSELVES, much less freaking Israel! (Before anyone says anything, the poor state of the economy has nothing to do with Obama, it’s the result of the poor practices of our PREVIOUS presidency.) I know Israel is supposed to be allies of ours, but come on! Does he even know what is coming out of his own mouth? Does he even know what year it is?

    Someone needs to get that senile a-hole an easy chair and a crocheted blanket. STAT.

    Pattycake STFU u r just like him, a “person” who doesnt really know what the eff r they talking about. at least Jolie is trying to put a light on those places where is still war torn and/or poor. If it wasn’t for her and those “photo opportunities” we wouldn’t know a thing about why is that part of the country the way it is now. At least she knows what the eff is she talking about unlike her father who seems to be talking only merde all the time in regards to politics and his own daughter, no wonder why she doesn’t even regards him as a father.

    They NEVER saw America as a “liberator” Jon, so take your phony-macho politics and shove it up where the sun don’t shine.
    We already tried Jon’s kind of politics, and it got us into two wars we will never win and a destroyed economy.

    maria Says:

    he’s definitely entitled to his opinion, but I agree with those who said that it’s too early in Obama’s term to make a judgment call on his legacy…

    I’ve actually met Jon Voight (at a local event) and I can say that he is a very kind and gracious man…he made sure all the fans had autographs and pics…he went out of his way to answer questions and appeared very humble…he even stayed for a couple hours after he was obligated to and hung out with everyone…

    Based on the troublesome relationship b/w him and his children, I was expecting an arrogant and self-absorbed man…but that was far from the truth…I found him gracious and down-to-earth…he wasn’t the monster he has been painted to be in the media or by his children…

Do you SERIOUSLY know what goes on behind closed doors, when he is not, of course, ‘putting on a show’ in public, for fans? If you really think how he is in front of paying fans is how he truly is behind closed doors in real life, you are nothing short of a fool.

    Khristi Says:

    I have to say that even though I support Obama-I am skeptical of anyone no matter how good their intentions are when power is involved because no one is immune to that kind of corruption. I totally disagree with John Voight here because he was criticizing Obama way before he won the Democratic election. He seems like someone who is very bitter about not only politics, but life in general.

    Ali Says:

    His statements are ludicrous! What has 8 years of Republican warmongering and looting the Treasury done to this country and to our standing in the world? And he blasts Obama who is trying to reframe and repair our democracy as well as our place in the family of nations. Obviously, Voight wants the limelight and attention, and the Republicans have no voice except inflammatory lies and namecalling. Obama is the smartest and most capable president we have had in many, many years. He has not sold out to business nor to Israel. He is working to right this country from its distortions of the past 8 years. How many billions of dollars went to the KBR Halliburton Group, and the Carlyle Group parties under Bush/Cheney? They sent soldiers who were ill-equipped to fight in Iraq because they had inappropriate body armor and jeep armor – and during Bush/Cheney’s regime those wounded soldiers had to beg for treatment and support.

    No, there is no ascension to prophecy in Obama; that is not who Obama is. He is potentially an extraordinary leader. He wants the US to be respected and to be true to our calling as a nation to be models of justice and freedom and goodness in the world, while holding steadfast to our Constitution. We must support Obama and write in and raise questions when we have them, but support his leadership and his obvious desire to do a good job as president. I am immensely proud of him.

  53. 53
    anon Says:

    The President’s job is to keep America safe, not to keep Israel safe and the idea that the President is trying to reach moderates around the world to isolate the extremists is brilliant. We had someone with Voight’s worldview in the White House for eight years and how’d that work out for us? Voight is batsh*t crazy and everyone knows it. The only reason he has a problem with Obama is because he’s black, but keep talking for Republicans and they will stay out of power for a long time.

    All you people that are attacking john or anyone that does not like obama, please educate yourself! please do the research! THINK for yourself!! stop buying the lies that are put out there by well known leftwing media. the mainstream media is in the tank for obama and EVERYONE knows it except you retards that bury your heads in the sand!
    as far as AJ goes, this women cant make up her mind about who`s baby she wants to carry!?! i cant get over how people hold up these hollywood types that dont give a damn about anyone but themselves!
    you all have good things to say about AJ because she is a good looking “women” and young. WTF does that have to do with anything?
    John is right no matter what you all think! you cant argue with the “TRUTH”! think im wrong? prove it! obama is going to go down in history as a failure. the ONLY reason he got elected is because he is black and the united states wanted so much to “prove” that it is not racist. to hell with the fact that he has no idea what to do or how to do it! and his “cant we all just get along?” policy will fail.
    i know that he will hang himself in the end!

    You/Me Says:

    Gotta hand it to him, the man is not afraid to say what he thinks. I think there is some truth to what Voight is saying, and I also think that Obama is a weak President of the United States, he is too soft and thinks our enemies will smile and hold hands with us and sing kumbaya if we “go gently”. That being said however, he has not been in office long enough to accomplish anything, things take time and we should give him a chance and see what happens. I think Obama will come to realize that his fantasy is just that, a fantasy, and he will toughen up.
    Also want to say that Angelina and Jon’s relationship has nothng to do with politics, they were obviously estranged long before Obama was even a known name. Beside, Angie doesn’t strike me as a political person, she seems to care little about any given politician and more about laws and justice. Now Brad on the other hand, Obama lover that he is, I bet he won’t be attempting any more reconciliations between Angie and Jon anymore,lol :-) !!!

    Lo Says:

    Republicans and those with similar viewpoints need to wake up to the fact that America will never regain its No. 1 superpower status. A nation to be admired and feared. Those days are long gone… I repeat, long gone and will NEVER return. Get over it! China is bank rolling/buying US debt for goodness sake. Obama’s democratic approach is enhancing the US reputation…. a rep that was in the gutter. Stop whining!

    sara lee Says:

    Pam are you smoking some sh*t. You must be completely ignorant and oblivious to what previous terms have done. Obama hasn’t done sh*t!…yet! His responsibility now is to try and clean up the mess and aid with new f’in problems. I would never want his job; bad economy, two wars, health issues, social issues on top of the SWINE FLU and other “radical” issues the media spews as top priority.

    I have never made this man my messiah. I am sure that he will make mistakes, hopefully not like Bush. I just hope that people stop looking at Obama and any other as the savior of people and look to themselves and local leaders as progressive pieces in improving the nation we live in.

    Obama has been in office five months and people want things done that the ‘former’ administration mishandled? What is wrong with you people who feel Jon is right? Yes, Jon has every right to his opinion, but where was HE when children around the world were dying of hunger and health? Where was HE when a man in power tortured and killed children — AND THE FORMER ADMINISTRATION KNEW OF THESE HORROS? Where was HE then? Where was HE when the horrors of people losing their homes in NO and it took the former administration days to get water and much needed items to them? Where is HE NOW that NO is still suffering?

    Yes, Angie doesn’t fall far from the tree and the tree had NO male branches!! Her mother gave her the love and principles she follows today — NOT HER FATHER!!

    Thanks Jon! You just showed all that you are more batshit crazy than even I suspected.

    I guess JV was highly praised by the Republican gathering. they chose him to MC this event. They really don’t understand how lunatics like Voight, Limbaugh, Gingrich, Palin and their ilk are marginalizing the Republican Party.

    It is interesting after 8 years of bombast from Washington that one little speech in Egypt seems to be moving the public opinion in the Muslim world, doesn’t it? But Voight wants more saber-rattling and bring-it-on rhetoric. Can you picture Pres. Obama appearing on a ship in a flight suit to say “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED? I can’t believe Colin Powell still associates with the GOP. I have lost all respect for him.

    The Republicans have squandered our kids, treasure and prestige in the name of profits and greed.

    Republicans and those with similar viewpoints need to wake up to the fact that America will never regain its No. 1 superpower status. A nation to be admired and feared. Those days are long gone… I repeat, long gone and will NEVER return. Get over it! China is bank rolling/buying US debt for goodness sake. Obama’s democratic approach is enhancing the US reputation…. a rep that was in the gutter. Stop whining!


    That;s true. China owns America’s debt.
    I guess it’s hard for many people of JV’s generation to accept the fact that the US is no longer alone at the top.
    Former pres. Clinton said in a speech quite some time ago, at one of the universities, that America has to get used to the fact that there are others coming up. The US is getting company at the top. China, of course and, down the road, India, Russia, Brazil. Indonesia was mentioned in a distant fifth place.

    That conciliatory speech in Cairo is not enough!
    The only way to enhance the US reputation is when the US bullies Israel into accepting a Palestinian state, and the terms have to be acceptable to the Arabs, led by Saudi Arabia. With Netanyahu in power, that will take time!

And when you’re wants to take care of other countries’ problem, it is essential to have a good image.
    And for those who thinks that Obama’s supporters did not think about the consequences of his decision, well i would like to say “think twice guys”…..

    no. the over the top comments are coming from voight and people from all sides of the aisle. some more tempered than others, but then again some of us don’t have the pulpit of limbaugh, cheney, and fox news to impart our opinions onto others. the day i admit obama to be my prophet is the day i go to hell, just like the day i admit bush to be my prophet or my god is the day i go to hell. i can’t believe these comments are being made at all. anyone who knows anything about religion knows how sacralidgeous that is. are you freakin kidding me. fn pisses me off. so what. people voted for obama on mass and he has mass popularity because PEOPLE HATE GEORGE BUSH AND AS A BY PRODUCT AMERICA. what about that don’t you understand. that bush hatred spans not only from bush jr but to his father as well. the democrats have not had clean hands and neither have the republicans. if you only say that internationally people only hate america because of bush then that is disingenous…but instead of making the problem better, or trying to improve americas reputation internationally, he helped in it’s deterioration…and maybe obama will continue in the bush path and help that along, but we won’t know yet because it will also take him 8 years before there is an absolute determination (although determinations will be made after his 2nd year)…but we won’t know yet. so yeah give it time. just like when bush was in power he got the green card to go ahead. fair is fair. it’s nice to be critical in hindsight to hold people responsible but that was severly lacking with the bush jr admin…so am i to believe that people have finally waken up to politics and politricks…so much so that they are making judgements about the current admin based on stuff you pull out of your a$$. i ihope not. i mean he’s a racist and all this etc…it’s f’n ridiculous and half the time i can’t believe how these f’rs in the media have jobs. they think they can say whatever they want and not be held accountable. no wonder journalism has gone to the crapper. even people who have been in journalism for more than 40 years are saying crap about the way it’s being churned out. please. don’t assume us all to be stupid, because we have eyes and ears and we see what’s going on and some of us are willing to do the legwork to find out actual factual truths. dumbness is a disease. don’t subscribe to it and don’t be happy living in a coloured goggles generation. question everything and don’t allow yourself to be forcefed bullsh*t.

We were founde on the foundation of Christianity .
    uh huh. you only have problems borrowing from china now huh? you have problems from borrowing from china when your country needs help…when single handedly one of the worst disasters ever to face a modern civilization to cripple not only the center of the financial industry and therfore impacting economies, but also the finaces and economy of EVERY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD happens. me i was hoping bush was stupid enough to not buy the paulsen plan. i really really really really wanted such a deflation that would not only cripple america but every other country in the world. it’s about time the dollar became worth what it’s really worth in the eyes of those outside the united states with your creation of the biggest sham/shadow economy ever, and encouragement of bad practices, and china would have came out ahead anyways. this whole stimulas may save face for americans so that although things suck now, they aren’t that much worse, but it really is just slowing down the inevitable with other countries stepping up in the foray to the front to truly become internationally recognized powerhouses. so yeah. like rush freakin limbaugh i was hoping obama would fail (bush already failed) and as a byproduct america to fail and osama to win no? treason much. but of course i can only say that kind of sh*t if i am republican and that makes it much more acceptable than if a democrat said that same thing. okay so the highest unemplyment rate in decades huh, lol, and of course it is ALL obama’s fault. it may say so on his record or when the people who document history write this down. you can’t dispute that statistic. it’s a fact. just like it is also a fact that IT IS NOT ALL OBAMA’S FAULT AND THEREFORE DOESN’T ALL FALL AT THE FEET OF ONE PERSON. just like it wasn’t all bush’s fault, just like it wasn’t all clinton’s fault, just like it wasn’t all bush snr’s fault, it will not all be obama’s fault either. those historians who record the truth will record that it is a collection of converging matters that started a long time ago and it is not either the repubs or the dems it is conclusively ALL their faults. some more than others, but really, look it up because it’s there. anyone following the market 10 years ago could have predicted this because bubbles are cyclical, and anyone looking at the market 5 years to even 2 years ago knew this was happening. greed is such a beautiful thing, just like hypocrisy. your conclusion that egypt is responsible for 9/11 is laughable. if you don’t understand why he went to cairo then you basically shouldn’t be arguing about things you don’t know. even i was conflicted by egypt as his choice (my opinion) but i understand why he went there. why shouldn’t he be apologizing. i never knew apologizing inherently made you weak. i hope you read the bible. being able to recognize when mistakes are made and being humble is held in quite high regard in accordance to the i don’t see the great sin with his apologies. oh the big bad united states is afraid of losing face. america loses face ALL THE TIME…it’s just that because some of those people who you get involved with don’t speak english or may not have the power to express themselves, but that game is all changing. you don’t understand because you don’t see it from the other side. yes the troops need support, and even though canadians do not support the war, they support their troops ultimately, but canadians are not stupid enough to see this war for something it’s not, and nor are they unaware that with their ultimate participation in this they have made themselves a prime target. this war was started in bad judgement and i hope it doesn’t end in bad judgement. talk about blessing us with the 8 years of george bush. dude. if it didn’t happen with bush, it would have happened with clinton (good that it didn’t) or whoever had succeeded clinton. osama was coming for america way before and it was just the time. he’s not a stupid dude and neither are his followers.

    I do not care what party Angelina belong to I know her heart is in the right place, and I have watched her all these yrs and she is still a young person. Angelina and Brad will always have my blessing. Did’nt dad think she had lost her mind because she wanted to get serious about her life after being married 2 times before she was 23yrs. The reason we know she was serious because she got rid of a husband that was double her age and did not teach her anything about life and she realized it, so she chose motherhood and humanta. I think her dad should stop trying to rid her coattail. I thought my mother said he marched with Martin Luther King.

Obama hasn’t been in power for even 200 days and people like Voight , who didn’t criticize the disastrous previous administration , now suddenly found a voice and are speaking out.

    I respect that America is a democratic country who gives the freedom of speech to the people. But I really disagree of what John Voight said about Obama. I love Obama for his concern to people not that he wants to be a president for himself. He is very modest. He looks soft and weak and I am sure when he really means it he could be as strong as a lion. He wants peace in the world. It is too much that I think America likes to interfere other countrie’s personal matters and Obama wants to fix wrong impression of those countries. If he is able to make that impression to all countries in the world that America loves peace, America will be the first country in the world as the initiator and the inspirator to all big countries to do the same. I think it is not a matter of being the strongest but to be able to live peacefully wherever we are. I believe that America has chosen the right man, he looks soft but at least as a person of from another country I do not feel intimidated. I do not like to see Bush that gives the impression that America is very arrogant.

    You are correct! It isn’t any single individual’s fault. In fact, Clinton, Bush, Obama are handily chosen puppets.

    The real question is……WHO pulls their strings?

    Cuz in reality Obama has no power…neither did Bush, Clinton. So lets get to the core of the matter.
    hey robin. i don’t think we are much in disagreement actually. i think that i can totally understand whatever position you are coming from as long as it not full of vitriol or extreme hyperbole’s. anyways to that question about the who…i don’t know. i don’t subscribe to the consipiracy theories, but i know money talks huge to people and i know that wall street has been involved in the political mix for some time, along with companies, and lobbyists, and even religous institutions. i would think that maybe these men, (since america has not had a female president) are governed by what they know and learn as time passes, but that they also surround themselves with capable people who can impart good judgement in information…but as we all know that realization is not always entirely correct, so i guess the answer to that is i don’t know. but i’m not going to just sit down and not try to find an answer to that question. money talks huge everywhere in the world. i mean look at gretchen peters on the daily show last night talking about how big the drug trade is as a component for this war on terror for the terrorists. ied’s are paid for by the money these guys get for the drugs. ied’s kill all of our allied great soldiers. WHO BUYS THESE DRUGS. WHO BUYS THESE DRUGS FROM THE MEXICAN CARTELS THAT IS CONTRIBUTING TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE BEING KILLED. so yeah. the finger doesn’t point only one way. people need to look at themselves too. oh and robin about your comment saying words are cheap. i think i said that too when i was talking about image being more powerful than words or speech. ACTION(S) SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS…and that’s just commen sense.

Why held such a controversial political speech if you obviously do not know anything about it..

    the fact is the republicans spend 8years doing nothing other than spend money to war and create a very very bad morgin (for housing) system, which eventually initiated the great recess that we’re in now.

    so when you look at the facts you can not support this ignorant speech, though everyone is entitled to their right to voice their opinion, this speech was simply denying the facts..

    To be the independent I am, I will say it-he inherited a grand mess.

    My real question is this?

    Is it to late to make it Obama as the Prez and Palin as the Veep? lol

    I think that is a compromise for all.

    Good thing we live in America and say what we feel, and in PUBLIC. Say what he said in Cuba, the sandy countires or China or North Korea and see where that lands you!

    a catholic calling someone stupid. now where have i seen that so many times before. i didn’t want to wave the religious flag although i did bring it up previously for someone to go and read the bible because making apologies, being able to realize mistakes is not a sin in the bible. anyways so here it is chica. I’M CATHOLIC TOO. but as a hypocritical catholic, because i know where my religion comes from and i know the hypocrits who recognize/attach themselves to this religion, i realize that i am not better, nor are my judgements any better than others. so yeah you take your catholicism and realise how hypocritical you are with your statement. obama didn’t throw israel under the bus. certainly many israeli’s (including the muslim israeli’s. lol. i wonder how muslim israel’s can live as secondary citizens to jewish people in israel and yet they don’t allow palestinians even the basic decorum of stable living) may think that and so do pro-israel supporters…but the point is is that you don’t realize or recognize the other just like you give isreal a fair shake but you don’t for the other side. AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A CHRISTIAN? huh. what does the bible say about love thy enemies huh and love the other like your borther or sister. i don’t know from what bibles people read from, but it’s entirely hilarious/sadistic to see what religion does to people. religion is not inherently evil, nor is it inherently good. it should be a work in progress (in a perfect world) but must people just cling to their golden books like it’s the end all be all. whatever. you are no different from those you fail to recognize. israel needs to move on. yes they are america’s main allies in the east and have a large military resource…but they way america kowtows to israel or to the jewish lobbying makes america and american’s look like their b*tch, and that’s the truth. i can’t believe that america allows israel to read classified documents from your intelligence agencies, because ya’ll are like a married couple/best friends etc…it’s an entirely amusing situation. maybe if people could let go of past histories we all in the world can collectively move on. let’s admit horrible things have happened in the world and try to right wrongs and move on. WHY IS THAT SO HARD TO DO? so much so that people become pure wussies when confronted with hard issues. gah.

    Congressional Budget Office projected that for the first time in three decades, there would be no cost-of-living adjustment —- or COLA —- for Social Security recipients in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

    These adjustments are designed to keep elderly Social Security recipients from losing purchasing power as prices rise, so it’s not surprising that the initial reaction was one of concern.

    “The absence of a cost-of-living adjustment … will be a shock to older Americans already hit by plummeting home values, investment losses and rising health costs,” The New York Times wrote earlier this month.

    Senior groups were predictably up in arms. An AARP spokesman moaned that “most seniors have never been through a year in which there was no Social Security COLA.”

    Some liberal bloggers accused the Obama administration of betraying seniors. And there’s already talk of legislation to address this perceived inequity.

    atleast i recognize that i have a self righteous ass. i hope you feel good being all knowing about what you know on the muslim world. why would you presume me to not know anything about the muslim world. you don’t know me personaly, so where is that judgement coming from. where in that comment you quoted did i say something about the so called muslim world. painting muslims an arabs with the same one dimensional brush is disingenous…just like i could also say that based on the history of america all americans are savages or racists. it’s not true. so don’t put words in my mouth. i hope you also enjoy pulling your self righteous judgemental head out of your a$$. bin laden didn’t do what he did without reason. the taliban and alqueda do not act without reason and neither do all the militant factions around the world wether it’s hezzbolah, ira, ltte, hamas, farq, janjawid, al shabab, etc…and painting them all as one dimentional militias is also disingenuous. not all in the muslim or arab world are terrorist. if you think the muslim or arab world only includes the middle east, then that’s laughable. i mean last week the pakistani ambassador to the us was saying he and others take great offense to being included in the axis of evil description or people presuming that because they are recognizably a muslim country, that they are immediately included in the mid east conflict or seen as arabs. pakistan is not an arab country. he said that is what some americans and the western world don’t know or can’t seperate the facts, that the muslim world is not all in the middle east and that pakistan is a south asian muslim country. there are many muslim countries in the world that don’t cause the us problems…so what are they all to be included in the war on the muslim world or the war in the middle east. also…lol. not all muslims are arabs & vice versa. not all people who follow islam are terrorists. there are arab jews, arab christians, arab muslims, etc…and there are many arabic people living around the world…they aren’t all terrorists. israeli’s speak like they are the only people to have ever faced persecution ever…when infact there are many people, many races, many cultures, many ethnic people’s who have faced persecution all around the world. anyways something needs to change, because this bullsh*t has been going on for way too long.

    Isn’t this the same guy who cheated on his wife, caused a miscarriage while bringing women over into her house on socalled parental visits, then left the same kids as a toddlers in order to pursue his interests( anything but raising the kids), a KNOWN CULT FOLLOWER, dead beat though he was earning $$$ after winning that oscar, left the stay at home mother to raise the kids WITHOUT PALIMONY and in DEBT til after her death…..had the gall to bash the mother of his kids AFTER HER DEATH, once a upon a time, couldn’t for the love his life remember Zahara’s name( says Shakira but of course he remembered to cry crocodile tears for all those who would listen about his desire to see those little angels(Shiloh, Vivian and Knox)…. suddenly is telling me that OBAMA is BAD for the contry.

    I say, at least Obama AINT got the following on his resume:

    1.) Revolving door dad
    2.) dead beat
    3.) emotional abuser
    4.) absent father

    Listen folks, it is one thing to have an opinion but another to HAVE such as SCARY closet and feel the need to judge others.

    YOU need to wake up and smell the real world. (before George Bush almost ruined it). Obama has a real mess to clean up and it’s gonna take some time of course.

    Everybody has the right to voice out their opinion whether it is good or bad..this is a free country…

    Obama’s supporters really believe he is the one who is going to save America and possibly the whole world….but the sad truth is that, economy is getting worst!

    Sales Tax in California even went high at the time when almost majority of Californians are losing their employment, houses, etc…

  237. 237
    Hey Jon voight Says:

    to Sharon – no here is saying he has NO RIGHT TO VOICE HIS OPINION….

    some of us just think he is NOT WORTH AN OPINION given his background.

    Hey, there is a saying that – you can judge a man only if you are squirky clean…but seeing the background of Jon Voight…plez…Jon is the last person to say something about Obama.

    To be a dead beat and spousal abuser(mentally and whatsnot) are usually GOOD INDICATORS of a kind of man you are dealing – in the case of Jon Voight, the writing is on the wall and it says – WATCH OUT GUYS, this guy is pretty cuckoo upstairs.

    TJ: Bush was borrowing money from China and printing money long before Obama came in on the scene. He had to pay for his war , so obviously he was doing this. Remember $5/gallon gasoline? That was under Bush. He did nothing to reign in the cost when he was president in order to further enrich his cronies . That’s part of the reason why republicans lost because the gas cost was bankrupting a lot of people and nothing was done to stop it. It seemed like republicans didn’t care.

    but ppl r giving obama 2 many breaks, it’s time 2 start making some tough decisions like u said
    i love the fact of how he thinks the whole world can get along with his soft voice like jon says, ive given obama the benefit of the doubt because of the economy, but still his stimulus package has yet 2 be used in full force

    experience is important, but being a hypocrite doesn’t therby allow you to have a platform to speak on and to have people listen to you. that is why people laugh at bristol palin. it would have been better if she had practised what she preached prior to her getting pregnant.

    obama being soft is a misnomer. your gas will not go up to 10 dollars, and that price has nothing to do with obama. it has everything to opec countries playing the market and setting the terms for the amount of oil output and the reserve oil stocks that they choose to disregard because they want to be stingy. good for them. it also has everything to do with the dollar and how it’s going to loose ground to other currencies because of the inflation due to the many stimulas’ and overspending that has been going on with multiple governments. but then you’re going to blame obama soley for the inflation too. w/e.

    credit is going to losen up and start to flow again…unless the mothers at wall street or in the financial sector start messing around again. the recession will be over, and life will still suck, but it really is much better than a 100% collapse.

    anyone who calls obama their messiah is not smart. he can’t write 8 years all by himself nor can he due it in the time so far that he has been in the office. puh freakin lease. give it a while before you start the bashing and the hyperbole.

It happens all the time who’s the bad one. So lets not be so quick to judge Jon about being a father. A scorned woman is the worst..

    Jon has a right to his own opinion , but I also agree its still a little to soon. I didn’t vote for Obama but I’m willing to give him chance and to soon t give my own opinion also.

    Well said. Ali.
    No wonder Angelina wants to keep a safe distance from Jon Voight. First he was a father who abandoned his children. Then he was a deadbeat husband and dad who didn’t pay spousal support. Then when he shows up to be with his kids he was – to quote James haven, abusive.
    Now we can see how he abused his wife and children.
    Imagine JON Voight turning on his children and criticising them with the same lack of balance as he is now criticising Obama then make it at least twice as bad. Because those were his children and he was speaking to them in private and very likely swearing and using a threatening angry tone of voice. Imagine an Alex Baldwin.
    No wonder Angelina and James both want to keep their distance from him. They should. And very wisely, as they let him back into their lives, its only from a distance. And no way should he ever baby sit any of the kids on his own. NO WAY.

    thank you, Ali – a voice of reason…
    look at the kind of critical thinking “pam” is capable of demonstrating – set aside her poor grammar “evidentley your related…” but it does show ignorance at a basic level, and her argument that you can only be able to discern the qualities of our president if you are related to him. But she is not nearly as flaccid in thinking as the illiterate “can’t forget 9/11″.

    If there were only some clear reasoning skills – some example of a valid argument that is based in facts. I don’t know these two people, but in general those kinds of comments, especially Jon’s, reflect xenophobia if you just scratch beneath the service. “false prohpet”?? Jon is starkers.

    WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE ON BARACK OBAMA BEING A RADICAL MUSLIM. do you know what RADICAL means. so yeah i want your evidence.

    and you’re sick of double standards. you’re sick of it after the fact right…well where the hell were you when bush and his administration were in power. i wonder what you were saying then at that time as well. it is okay to criticize. criticism makes the world go around, it’s easy to do, it’s cheap and inconsequential to the critic and when it’s made in the right it can hold people accountable. were you holding your former president accountable when he was in power. i hope you were.

    hey sharon since this is an equal oppertunity forum i hope you are calling dubya a thug as well as rush limbaugh. then that would be fair.

    and that entire part about our children and grandchildren paying in the future…i think that sounds familiar why because i’m been saying that since 91…and probably every single day of the bush administration and some during clinton too. so you know what it’s not only obama. maybe you should take some of your hatred and place it into somthing positive. thanks in advance.

    and know that this drinking of the kool aid you accuse others of, i’m sure a lot of republicans were drinking it straight from the trough when bush was in power. lol. bill bennett saying i like the man but not his policies. i hope you were saying that bill bennet when your president from your party was in power at the time he was in power. it’s nice to say that all after the fact. and let’s not forget bay buchannen. it kills her to admit how much damage bush has done to her beloved party. lol. maybe ya’ll do everyone a favour and turn a blind to obama like how you did bush and we will all reconvene for the bashing after his term is over.

    Being a christian is a personal choice and has nothing to do with the abortion bill. there is a reason why there is a separation of church and state.

    This is kind of extreme is what you see on right-wing propaganda stations like fox news and radio stations. This fanning the flames of hate caused people like that person to murder that Dr. Whether one agrees with this Dr. or not , he was doing something legal.

  285. 285
    mertz Says:

    i don’t get why people don’t understand the seperation between church and state…probably because the religious people involve themselves in government matters, and governments involve themselves in things people only think of in terms of religion, not failing to realize that religion doesn’t govern everything.

    just so you know for all your opinions about obama, george bush is going to be in hell right along with me, cheney, clinton, bush senior, republicans, democrats, people of all parties. well have a big gyamboree dance around the fires of hell.

    lets get back to jon voight and his hyperbole and his crazy talk. i can’t believe he compared obama to julius ceasor. why don’t people think before they talk. if obama is soft spoken does that mean bush was yelling all his speeches???? did i miss something??? or are they talking about the rhetoric…cause like we said before talk is talk. words are pretty and all, and kind of cheap. actions speak louder than words, but by no means are words completely powerless. i mean david frum. talk about a guy who is liberal with his use of the english word. axis of evil eh? disingenous much? even his reasoning behind that term on the surface looks like it works out but his use of the word axis is flawed. but what would i know…aparently i don’t have a brain.

    We are talking about a guy who chickened out on parenthood. LOL.

    And this the guy that you republicans supports are coming out to support on this thread.

    A guy who chickened out on his adult resposibilities is YOUR ROLE MODEL of a YES MAN…

    The man walks into a Financial, foreign policy, 2 wars (one contrived) as well as domestic SH#$@T storm 5 months ago does the best he can to keep the country from collapsing into a third world economy. And here it is this nut is comparing him to some kind of messiah inwhich he or no one else claims that he is. Mr Voit should just go and say what he “really” means and stop with the code words, between this kind of sh#@%$t from the (R)epubs and other (R)ight wingers we get nowhere .G.W. left a mess behind and he even knows it thats why he’s been quiet. Cheney’s in a panic because he knows that most of the dirt (crimes) from the last 8 years points dirctly to him and (R)umsfeld. And as far as they go “be carefull what you ask for” we all know the rest of that proverb.

    The President has only been in office for 5 months. Where were all the GOP{‘ers before Obama came into office? Frankly Obama has been acting very Republican. He continued the GOP invention of bailout from Bush and bailout whom? Freaking BANKS and Auto companies. These are bastions of Republican symbolismn. Banks equal GOP as does big auto companies and Obama bails them out and not the mom and pops. GOP’ers should be happy that he has tried to save these pillars of Republican symbolism… Meanwhile the GOP’ers are acting like bleeding heart liberals and blastin the president for saving big business (sound familiar liberals?) and forgetting about the litle guy.

    Please I want the old aristocratic blueblood Republicans. Not these Christian right, undecided,, trailer, uneducated, untraveled hee haw etc…people.

    The President has to fix the mess of the Bush era of the past 8 years. That’s not gonna happen overnight and even in 4 years. So Jon Voight and his delusional ilk will have to wait 4 years before anyone will listen to him. The GOP’ers have lost their identity. Blaming the new President after 8 years of GOP leadership does not establish an identity for the Republican party.

    For those naysaying Voight however, I must remind you that President Ronald Reagan came from Hollywood (that place that GOP’ers hate so much) and became President.

If it wasn’t for Alzheimer’s disease Regan would have gone to prison ( Iran contra) .As well as Neil Bush (savings and loan debacle). They always lean on their own(so called) messiah Ronald Reagan. We can go on for days about that one. It seems to me that the Dem’s are always cleaning up for the right-wing, Clinton had to although they turned on him accused him of murder rape the whole shebang, an investigation for tying his shoe in the morning. we know the real story when of comes down to republicans,not only are they sore losers

    of course republicans don’t like what he’s doing and neither do some democrats. what do you want him to do sue? something that is entirely possible for him to do? you want him to let bank of america, citigroup, freddie mac, fannie mae, and so many other institutions/companies fail like how they did lehman brothers. what really do you want barack obama to do…and please have a good suggestion. i want to hear your ideas. because for a long time the republicans looked like incompetent naysayers who tried to deny this recession was happening, then when it hit they looked like the incompetent government without a plan…barely even understanding the plan of henry paulson.

    how entirely funny will it be if sarah palin wins for the republicans in 2010 or 2012. wow. i hope by then she’s learned a bit more about the rest of the world outside of alaska and the united states.

This type of tough approach you want to see Obama to practise is not going to work by looking at how unsuccessfull your relationship with your children! Wake up and travel out of America once a while, you got a lot to learn from your daughter.

    traveler Says:

    1. China owned half our debt before the primary season even started. If you want to gripe about that, you need to gripe at the Republicans who let it happen.
    2. The economy collapsed after 8 years of a Republican in the White House. Not to say that the recession was entirely Bush’s fault (the fault lies with everyone), but it surely wasn’t solely Obama’s fault.
    3. People complain about Obama’s bailouts, but if he’d allowed our financial system to collapse, and subsequently all other industry to collapse, you’d still be complaining, only you’d be saying he was the president that allowed us to implode. What exactly was the man supposed to do? If you have an idea that would work better, please step forward and voice it. You can’t just ***** and complain. You have to help if you think the decisions being made are wrong. I might have more respect for you then.
    4. I have heard no one, except right-wingers say that Obama is a messiah/prophet. If you have issues with him being referred to in this way, again, go gripe at the Republicans that keep bringing it up.
    5. Anybody that thinks Obama is going to institute the next holocaust is a nutcase. Nothing else needs to be said.
    6. I believe that Obama is a Christain because he says he is. Why shouldn’t I believe him? If he were a Muslim, I wouldn’t care in the least. I just want him to be a decent president. I don’t care what religion a politician subscribes to. As long as I agreed with their platform, I’d vote for them. I see nothing different between that and working with a co-worker that is different than myself. As long as they do the job well, I’m happy. What they do in their personal life is their business.
    7. I would certainly listen to Obama more than Voight. Obama is a good man who supports his wife and children with respect, time, and money. Voight is a man who ran out on his kids and his responsibilities. He barely saw his kids and when he did, he was abusive. What kind of man is he? Is he the kind of man you want to follow? I certainly hope not. Obama is more of a man than Voight could ever wish to be.

    What does anyone really know about Obama? His life has been hidden. There are facts about him that cannot be found because he has them bound. The man has never run a corner store let alone the whole country. I have a bad feeling that this country will rue the day he was elected. JMO.
    Amazing that he has hacked $25,000 away from his campaign on those who will pay a tax increase. He campaigned on giving a tax break to those making less than $275,000-these days he only ever says $250,000……….just where did that other $25,000 go and don’t be surprised when it gets lower and lower when he realizes he cannot afford to pay for all of the “Change” he wants to make.
    I cannot believe so many blindly voted for him without ever looking at his voting record but I have come to believe this……..The masses are asses.

    Are you kidding me? We know virtually everything there is to know about Obama. We know what his childhood was like, where he went to school, who raised him and when, how many times he actually saw his father, which state he was born in, when he got married, who supported his campaign for congress, all of the speeches he gave, the content of his wife’s thesis, the church he attend for years, everything the pastor at that church ever said, his voting record while in congress, and much much more. Hell, we even know the dates of everyone of his grandmother’s promotions at her place of employment. What else do you want to know about the man? How many times a day he has a bowel movement? Please. The fear mongering won’t work on me. I know who I voted for. I might not agree with him on everything, but he certainly was the better choice in my opinion. I, like everyone else, am tired of constant war and the government telling me to cower under my kitchen table and be afraid of everyone that is different than myself. I prefer someone who is willing to find common ground with others and build from there. I prefer someone that speaks about hope rather than fear. I prefer someone that is going to listen to everyone, even our enemies, in an effort to find a peaceful solution to our problems. I by no means think that Obama is perfect. Like any human being, he will make mistakes, but I do feel he was the best man for the job. He has at least 4 years to prove my opinion of him right or wrong. I’ll reserve judgment until then. I subscribe to the belief that every president deserves a fair chance to prove themselves. 5 months is not a fair chance. Bush had 8 years, the least we can do is give Obama 4.

    Do you really know the content of Michelle Obama’s thesis?

    where are the records from Obama’s college years? They don’t exist. Did he go to college as Barack Obama or Barry Sotero? How did he travel to pakistan when Americans were not allowed to? Did he have a passport from Indonesia? Where are his friends from college? Haven’t seen a one. Why has his aunt here as an illegal immigrant? Why is she still here? If he went to college as Barry Sotero, when did he become Barack Obama? Is his name legally changes. I can go on and on. Does Barack have a thesis or just Michelle? if he does, where is his? And no, we do not know what state he was born in because he won’t release his long form birth certificate and no one in this country has the balls to make him prove where he was born and how a man born to an English citizen with dual citizenship at birth can be a natural born citizen. They can’t and he isn’t one but no one wants to touch it. I never said he didn’t deserve a chance but I am very wary of a guy who hides parts of his life. No one can access his college records from Occidental College………why is that?

If both of Bush’s kids had enlisted he would not have started that war or have made sure they are no where near the battle. I guess it’s ok for other people kids to go.
    The Bush/Cheney government had been printing money and borrowing from China for years further weakening our economy. These crazy right-wing nuts are trying to blame Obama who just got there after the republicans flushed this country down the toilet for 8 years. I used to vote on the republican side but it’s like how Jesus ran the pharisees out of the temple saying they have turned his place of worship into a den of thieves. Republicans were using the truly religious to advance their cause in order to enrich their friends ( disregarding the high oil prices and other burdens on the people) I don’t think God is on the side of fake christians ( The extreme ones). The pharisees used God’s name often but they were not really following him.
    Voight has the right to free speech, but I say again, where was his voice these last 8 years when Bush/Cheney was borrowing from China and printing money? If he truly loved his country he would have spoken out then. There was no republican out there who had the balls to challenge the government during the last 8 years. If there were such I could have possibly gotten behind that person, but to speak up now smacks of insincerity and self-advancement.

    it goes to another country, kills a bunch of people and comes back claiming that they won the battle, when all they wanted was to bring chaos to that nation so they can profit from it

    I am not suprised that THIS IS JON VOIGHT. Since I started following Angelina, I noticed the -mental abuse/control of the ex-wife which most likely led to a divorce, the kids disowning him, his forgetting the name of Zahara(NOT Maddox or Pax) tells me he is a XENOPHOBIC and mostly a racist…so NO suprise that he got a problem with Obama…and IMO, his problem with OBAMA is not policy base or democrat but RACE BASED.

    So, you all now know why Angelina want him far far far far AWAY from her kids…least he pollute them and steal their childhood as he did Jolie and her brother.

    Like someone said above, I would rather have a leader who can take care of his family rather than one who runs/ran away from it all.

    OBAMA – got balls
    VOOIGHT – nothing.

    emily Says:

    I have always been and independent who voted republican till I saw what was really going on and how the extreme right-wing religious (fake christians) were running this party and how the country was being ruined and no one was calling them out on it. It was back in 2003 that I started seeing some businesses close down. There was a whole strip of area that I remember riding a bus to that area when I was a kid and later driving there as a teenager that dissappeared. It was sad. It looked like a ghost town. That area was a middle to upperclass area with nice shops. It reminded me of the bible passage which said’ those dry bones will live again” Like breathing life into that area for it to thrive again. This was in the midwest.

    No country that loses its middle class can sustain itself. This happened under republican rule and they expect me to continue to vote for them? I had never seen it like this before ( In 2003). I asked my mom and she hadn’t seen it either. These nutcases didn’t stand up for those people then, and all of a sudden we are expected to believe them. Republicans should give this country a chance to recover if they truly love it like they claim to .

    Thank you for saying what so many of us are thinking Jon. Obama is rapidly taking this country down the tubes with the likes of the UN and the Islamofascists that want to destory America. When will he realize that they admit that they lie if it furthers their religion, they will never recognize Israel and allow women equal rights. Where is the ACLU now? If Israel treated its women the way the Saudis do, as well as include tortures like beheadings and stonings, worldwide groups would raise h-ll, but as long as Muslims are doing it, all is quiet. Talk about a double standard. Thank you Mr. Voight, you put into words what millions of us believe to be true.

Especially people that don’t want to be responsible…Imagine that! Plus really how can we help others w/ their problems when we are ignoring our own. We have become a weak nation!

Obahma Needs to be gotten rid of! And the press needs beat! All running candidates should have been given full coverage regardless of how much money they had to run a campaign because what it really came down to in the end was whose pockets ran the deepest…We need to change this, because real change starts here! don’t believe me? How many people noticed Ron Paul? And Funny how The republicans and the democratic parties had the exact same agenda’s during the campaigns…Really, Really. So what was the point in having two separate parties? Weren’t they supposed to be different, or have we degraded so far that all of our issues are the same one now?

I sure don’t feel sorry for him. The jackass is 70-year-old and has alienated his own damn children, and has most-likely never held his flesh and blood grandchildren in his arms. And at the rate he’s going, he probably never will before he dies.

    I’m totally disappointed in him. I can’t stand him. And I say, f*ck you, Jon Voight !! You are as ignorant about Obama as you are about why your own children continue to hate you. You’d do better to leave the outlandish rantings against OUR President to the Rush Limbaughs, Bill O’Reilly’s, Sarah Palins, Sean Hannitys, Ann Coulters, Elisabeth Hasselbacks, Charles Krauthemmers, Michael goodwins and the rest of those right-wing nuts. As much as I hate them too, they can do it much better.

    BTW, Lassie. Voight was in “Rosewood,” playing a shop owner who had back room sex with a black sharecroppers daughter and then he went to join the white mob who sought to run the blacks in the town of Rosewood out. Real, racist, slave owner mentality stuff. I guess Obama’s win against his boy, McCain really continued to blow his mind. And I guess this is the mentality that Voight continues to have.

Islam isn’t about treating women like scum, TRADITION is! The terrorists are a bunch of lunatics that really believe they are doing this in the name of God!
    Remind me when women got the right to vote, or when black people were considered as real equal citizen. In France, wives were given equality during marriage in 1985! less than 25 years ago!
    As for Israel, please! After what they did earlier this year, you really think they need protection? They killed harmless people hoping to kill “terrorists”! I know an israeli woman who told me that back when she lived there, her neighboor was palestinian and they were excellent friends! The truth is, hezbolah and some of the israeli leaders are idiots! I won’t deny that some countries want Israel to be destroyed but they are a minority, and whether they recognize it or not, it’s there!
    You talk about double standard, I have one question for you : What do you think of colonization and do you think it’s normal that it’s still exists in the 21st century? Just think about that, think about what the world said about the french colonial empire…
    Finally you obviously forgot that while you despise Saudi Arabia (and to tell the truth I kind of agree, this country is full of wretches) , America is their best trade partners…
    To end this i’ll just say that everyone has the right to speak their minds but it can be dangerous because easily influenced people can think Jon V. is right. America did great and horrible things, it’s time some people get self conscious… Give Obama a chance!

    amy Says:

    Reading all these posts really saddens me. If an American Citizen says anything negative against Obama he/she is practically condemned for it. Never in all my years have I seen a president with such a following and I think that is very scary. Jon spoke his voice as as an American citizen he has a right to do that. If he spoke out against Bush he would be praised. This is still America and we still have freedom of speech here according to the Constitution. If those rights are ever fully taken away then American as we know it will no longer exist. It will become a dictorship.
    The media and liberals try to make it a racial issue if you say anything against Obama and that is not fair at all. They seem to forget he is half white. I have nothing against a black president if he is the right man for the job and I don’t think Obama is. I don’t trust him. Just because you may not agree with me does not mean I am wrong, stupid or have no sense. You should respect my freedoms as much as I should respect yours.
    Jon spoke his voice and as an America citizen he has a right to do that. The first amendment to the Constitution gives him that right:
    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    Today, I see the US as right and wrong, most people know the right thing to do, yet they let personal feelings and greed get in the way of these actions. We elect people like Barack Obama soully on his Celeb status – not on his actions. Has the mindset of this great country swayed so far that we can’t recover? I think not, once again Majority will rule, once again we will set the example, and once again the evil – truly evil – in this world will have no place to hide and peace will reign – but that won’t come with Obama.

Where was their concern during the last 8 years?

    I was once a centre right person who voted republican all the time, till I wisened up and saw how this country was being destroyed by Bush who I voted for. Needless to say, I regret voting for Bush when I did cos I thought I was doing my christian duty not knowing we were being used. Many rational thinking christians came to this same conclusion if you follow the actions of this last 8 years, all we have left is to pray that this country will be great again after Bush/Cheney ruined it. Do we have a middle class any more? That is a serious problem. Read up and travel outside your own block and look at what happens when a country has no middle class.

For your information Obama could not have won with the help of minorities alone. It was people with high IQ’s who have travelled outside of their street corner and expanded their mind by having read and understand the world as you will never see it.

    For you , it was OK for Bush to print money but now all of a sudden you care about this country? You probably think you do in your own mind. Try speaking the truth for a change. I’m sorry, the truth is too complicated for you.

    I, like most people in this country, am a middle class citizen myself and I know what will happen to the country with no middle class. Not good. I don’t think it is all Bush’s fault though.

    I am a also Christian and although I don’t agree with everything Bush did I know he is a good, righteous man. He did keep our country safe from another terrorist attack. He protected the rights of the unborn. He supported Israel. He got Saddam Hussein out of power. No one person or leader can please everyone. We as Americans will never all agree with one leader. Only in an ideal world will that ever happen.

    For the sake of this country I pray for Obama and I want him to be successful but I have some serious concerns. I am afraid that after 4 years of Obama people are going to wish they had Bush back. You may laugh at that statement now but wait 4 more years. Believe me, I do hope I am wrong on that note.

    What about the stimulus package? Someone is going to have to pay the money back. I have enough problems paying my debts-much less the whole country’s. Also, I don’t trust him when it comes to supporting Israel. Being a Christian yourself you should know how important supporting Israel is. He also supports abortion (even partial birth abortion) and that is also wrong. He also wants socialized healthcare. Not good at all. I could go on but I will stop now.

    It is true that whenever anything negative is said against Obama it is left out of the media. People do get upset when anything is said against him. I have seen that myself first hand. That was the point of my above post. Jon probably did not say anything against Bush because he is a Bush supporter just like people who support Obama never say anything negative against him.

    thanks lassie for the voight list. i will pick some stuff out to see.

    it’s nice to see that the people who think about obama’s “celeb status” obviously are not consciously involved in local politics. i’ve been following obama’s career after i found out about his being president of the hlr, because i wanted to go to harvard and wanted to see how successful their alumin were, and that was more than a decade ago. i’m not even american. there are some really good political representatives in your country from all sides of the aisle. get involved before the curve.

    “Never in all my years have I seen a president with such a following and I think that is very scary.”

    right. and what you’re feeling now, i felt when bush was elected, not once but twice. i mean because of george bush more people hate america. so yeah i guess he did good while he was in office. he truly is to be commended for raising awarness of the whole abstinence propoganda in africa (like the pope) instead of promoting the use of condoms. i mean he gave aide/money to african governements. so he did good. he liberated (term used loosely) the iraqi’s from a dictator/an evil they knew best, and that’s a good thing, but really don’t lie to us and try to disprove knowledge/facts, and don’t do things under false pretences because you think that because everyone is sooooooo scared and on the revenge path after 9/11 that you can bully your way to get what you want. i understand he was influenced by people who had a bigger voice than he did…but he allowed himself to be led, so he is at fault. so you know what, for every day of the past 8 years that bush was in power that i was scared, i think you can muscle the first couple of hundred days with your fear…and i hope it rests well in you and maybe builds a little of hatred…because i don’t hate a lot of people, but george bush and his father and a lot of republicans, democrats, politicians from almost every country in the world as well as people who want to kill people to send a message because they think people’s lives are worthless are on my hate list, and i will gladly go to hell for that.

    “Obama think if you are nice to the criminally insane, they will be nice back ”

    lol. dude i say some stupid sh*t but even i’m not dumb enough to make that judgement about a politician. lol. YOU MUST NOT KNOW POLITICANS. they are just as bad as lawyers. some of the most determined, upstanding, conflicted, ruthless people i know. obama isn’t that stupid. just look at what he’s done so far. if you take him strictly at his word you’re dumb, and if you take him strictly at his actions, then that’s not so smart either. the truth is in the middle.

True righteousness is judged by God. He was merely using religious people to advance his agenda.

    @baddreamz: Oh my God! I really hope you’re joking! Again, I repeat calmly. The ones you describe are a bunch of lunatics!!! And usually, family are not responsble for that, terrorists are! They grab the kids out of their parent’s arms!
    Are you crazy to call all muslim people terrorists? I’ve never seen a gun in my hole life, or most of my family in muslim countries! Those who have are hunters (for food, not human in case you don’t understand!!!) What you just did is called amalgam and is the reason why racism exists! Let me do one as well : A lot of priests abused young children, should I say that all christian are abusive to children? I’m not that stupid and I’m pretty sure you’re not either! So show some intelligence!
    As you might have guessed, i’m not american and I learned english in school so I don’t understand what you mean by hethenism. If you mean they’re savages, I couldn’t agree more, but again, NOT ISLAM!!! Quran says Only Allah can take away what Allah gave : a man cannot kill another man because God gave life and only God can take it back. Of course if you’re not a believer…

    This is why I say give Obama a chance! Bush made America believe what you said and for that, he appears to me as one of the worst president!

    For those who were so hot for “change”, at what point will you start to question the policies, programs, and radical upheaval that this current administration has brought on, and will continue to bring about? At what tax rate will you say “Is it worth it for me to go to work anymore because they took away my right to pay for decent health care and put me in a line 6 months out with cheap medicine and underqualified medical staff, then they taxed me more and more to pay for it for everyone else, and now I only bring home 50% of the wage I earned.”?

    This administration is chock full of conspirators, thieves, and those who want to bring about the fall of modern civilization. The only way to do that is to bring down capitalism and make everyone reliant on the government. I thank God I dont have kids because I cant imagine having to subject them to whats to come.

    OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE!!!! Your “change” you thought you were going to get will leave you wanting. You will be broke, on government aid of some sort, and most of your civil liberties siezed by the end of this mans time in office. I wish someone was keeping a pool on that, because by the time it came due to pay up, I would be the only person left in this country with any money to speak of. He will bring this country to its knees, cripple it, and have no way back. Those paying attention knew this day would come, but that doesnt make it any easier to accept.

    i think you raise several valid points about everyone having a right to voice their opinion, even if it’s not valid, but like i’ve learned it’s called the internet and the internet is not in the domain of only america. so although i condone idiocy, you are right in saying people can say what they want…but it has to be with responsibility, accountability, with consequence.

    @lucy…your country is not going to war. although the general said that if called upon they can deploy 120-130 k troops to nkorea (and they’ll get help from the south koreans and the japanese), there’s not going to be one even if kim conducts more missle/nuclear tests. america cannot afford to go into another war this year. you guys are going to be moving into afghaniston for the counter terrorism efforts, but iraq is still in the equation if the troops leave and as elections come up the iraqi military cannot handle the instability the militants will surly bring…it’s already started. pakistan is in play as well. india is in play if the militants spread throughout iraq afghanistan pakistan and set up several coordinated offensives (doubtable but quite possible)…there’s a lot of stuff going on even without thinking about iran and nkorea in play right now. china will not look favourably on an america that is at war with nkorea. they should just take north korea at it’s word and interfere with their nuclear/missile tests. i mean war at this time will take my mind off how much the economy sucks, and why i need a better job. let’s go. loveeeeee politics and international affairs. let’s hope ahmedinjad doesn’t win the upcoming elections. go green party.

    Jon Voight is a deranged old man who–like many other bigoted right wingers–is attacking Obama based more on racial hatred and resentment than on his politics. His diatribe about Obama making only disaterous recommendations is absolutely absurd and baseless. Americans did not vote for Obama because they thought he is the Messiah, or even expected him to be; they aren’t stupid, as idiotic republicans. They did so because they wanted to get rid of the bunch of imbeciles that ran their country into the ground over the last 8 years. We did not liberate the world by ourselves; we had allies in Europe. We engaged in idealogical wars of choice when they suited our interests, which is not aways to liberate, but sometimes to meddle and bully smaller countries (Genada). How come we never tried to halt the genocide in Sudan? The right-wingers think we should stand alone in the world without allies, shooting in the air and clamoring like a bunch of drunken cowboys threatening to start a ruckus(George Bush mentality). What’s wrong with negoiating for peace, rather than starting a war? Also, what about Roosevelt’s foreign policy: speak softly and carry a big stick? Jon Voight, go rest your old ass.

She is expressing her opinion that possibly all these celebrities that are so quick to defend Obama and his policies are somewhat ill informed and living in a fantasy world. I believe that all they really know is what he has said in political speeches while running for the Presidency. There is absolutely no way that they are aware of what is going on behind the scenes. I have heard too many Obama supporters that have said the war in Iraq would end just as soon as Obama became President. Well, that hasn’t come to pass yet. Not to mention, apparently North Korea does not have much respect for him and his policies considering that are setting off nuclear bombs every other second and sentencing the two journalists to twelve years of hard labor. Just what has Obama implemented so far in his presidency? And Angelina DOES live in a fantasy world where all countries get together and play nicey, nice to each other. It is time for all Americans to live in reality and know that radicalism is here to stay and all we can do is try and keep one step ahead of them!!!

    Defending Israel

    More people should stand in defense of Israel – more people should read about biblical and political history and the reasons why Israel is a nation today (established May 14, 1948) and why it is just as important for the United States to maintain an alliance with and support of Israel today as it was in the past. Israel becoming an independent nation is a fulfilled prophecy and she must be protected! Remember also, that “those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it”. Don’t any of you realize that it doesn’t matter who has been voted into office, and it doesn’t matter what any of you say…God’s will is the pervasive and controlling power over all of the earth. God uses all manner of individuals as proponents of His Will. As unlikely as it seems, even Jon Voight!!! LOL!!!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! We are living in what many consider to be the “LAST DAYS” or “END TIMES” as described in the New Testament of the Holy Scriptures. Everyone should be working diligently to align themselves with what the Lord asks of them and to love Him as He commands us.

    Read what Jesus says after describing His return, in Matthew 24:32-34, Jesus says this: “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass away until all theses things have happened.” Most agree this says that the generation of people who witness the fig tree bearing leaves (Israel becoming a nation) will not pass away until the Son of Man returns. Read this; too…copy into your browser:

    PLEASE do not ignore these important truths – Satan is REAL and he and his legion of demons are roving the earth SEEKING THOSE WHOM HE CAN DESTROY and take down with him. He knows that his time on earth is short. Look at the facts and the prophecy fulfillments so far – it is amazing and could be frightening, unless you are aligned with Christ.

    Fatima Prayer:
    O my Jesus, forgive us our sins; save us from the fires of hell; lead all souls to Heaven; especially those in most need of Thy Mercy. Amen.

    Pater Noster (Lord’s Prayer):
    Our Father,
    who art in Heaven,
    hallowed by Thy name,
    Thy kingdom come,
    Thy will be done
    on earth as it is in Heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our trespasses
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation
    but deliver us from evil.
    For Thine is the Kingdom,
    the Power, and the Glory,
    Forever and Ever.

    Apostolic Creed
    Catholic Profession of Faith:
    I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us and for our salvation He came down from heaven. By the power of the Holy Spirit He became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered death and was buried. On the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended in heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]. With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

    Hail Mary (Ave` Maria):
    Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.
    Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the
    fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God,
    pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our
    death. Amen.

    Prayer to the Holy Spirit:
    Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy Faithful
    and kindle in them in the fire of Thy Love. Send
    forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created; and Thou
    shalt renew the face of the earth. O God, who didst
    instruct the Apostles by the light of the Holy Spirit,
    grant us in this same Spirit to be truly wise and ever
    rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord.

    you were right when you gave examples of things he said and things he didn’t do/has done…like i said before if you simply take the president at his words then you’re not too smart, and if you only take him at his actions, ditto with the lack of smarts. the truth is in the middle.

    being fanatical about the situation just to be isn’t right and doesn’t display the use of the brain, and allow people to grow and learn sometimes. the dude is learning that he can’t do all the things he said. he’s a politician. he’s not the first one to break his word…your great leader bush did it too…i mean did you see his campaign, what a bunch of great speech writers and campaigners (bush). so whatever it is it’s politics…you really can’t actually judge until 4 years, republicans, the least you can do is wait for him to finish, then you can complain as his term comes to an end.

    I wouldn’t worry yet, voe. There is another election in three years time!
    What a strange world! Europe is turning right, and the US is turning left! It’s up to the voters.

    What will the government do about North Korea? Especially about the two women who have been jailed for 12 years. Ridiculous! It can’t be nice to be in jail. I hear to be in jail in NK is worse.
    Let’s hope they’re quietly negotiating and suddenly we’ll hear the two have been freed. NK is just using them as bargaining chips.

    Another thing is, what will BO do about the Abu Ghraib pictures.
    The ultra left of the Democratic party demand that those pictures be published, but seeing those pictures would enrage the the Islamic world, specifically the Iraqis.

Obama needs to protect US’ interests which are ours–the people paying tax which pays his salary and his family trips to New York and Paris.
    And by your attitude, how is Angelina out of touch? And how is Voight an idiot? I would say he is no more idiotic than you or I or any one who loves his/her country.

    Jail in poor countries is hard. When people have little criminals should not expect comfort at par with people, let alone comfort of American standard. The girls must pay the price for violating NK’s laws.
    That said, as an American, a woman, a mother, I do hope their freedom comes quickly and at the cost of anything but our soldiers’ lives.
    I am for not publishing Abu’s pictures. As a citizen I do not care for the rights of our enemies. They certainly don’t about us.
    Voight has every right to be worried, like the rest of us, about whatever threats to his livelihood he perceives from current events. This is America where freedom is most prized after all.

He will turn against Israel, and force a Palistinian state, that will be a HUGE mistake. People, just watch the true Obama come forward, he is worse than Mr. Bush.

Aid that gets sent to struggling countries usually either gets seized by their governments, or seized by radicals. The truely needy will never see hardly any of it. Dont blame the hard working. You want “change”, educate yourself on whats really going on. I agree with the person that said the agendas dont change, just the players. Obama is no better than Bush, or worse for that matter. But his agendas seem to be bringing about the destruction of a mans ability to earn and keep himself, independently from a government handout. Cheese and soup lines are for folks who either cant be bothered to make real change, or who are too beaten down to. Either way, government creates a society of puppets.

    @ Londs…you hater, you!!!! WOW!!! What a meanie you are – and all I was trying to do was merely help you. It’s obvious to me, now, that you did not do well in academics as a child (especially in spelling and the mechanics of grammar) and you hate your English teachers because of YOUR ineptitude. Poor Londs!!!! You should take constructive criticism in stride and shouldn’t lash out. However, now that you have, perhaps I’ll provide further insight of your shortcomings:

    You’re way off base, as well, in your sophomoric attempt at political thinking. It is apparent that you have not studied political science, economics, sociology, theology, or anything, really. Additionally, using profanity and expletives only serve to showcase your inability to express your feebleminded perception and dearth of vocabulary. No…I’m not a teacher. Desiring to read properly written text isn’t a pedantic characteristic…it is simply a distinction of the educated class, of which evidently, you are NOT!!!

    Jon Voight is a creepy, sick old man. AJ is smart to keep her children away from this nut bar. God only knows what he would do to them.
    In reading comments on different sites re: Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbough etc., they all remind me of the same type. Dirty old men who are frustrated. I don’t think the 1st Amendment was meant to be bastardized,
    made a mockery , of or used as a license for complete stupidity.

    While most of the comments on this page are very ignorant and hateful, it just goes to show that most people who voted for the Obamination will have to be on the defensive for the next 4 years. Everytime a person speaks against Obama all the hate comes out. I find that very interesting and also attacking the family seems to be a thing they do. Lets start attacking Obama’s kids and see how you like it! Such hypocrites! Why don’t you find something better to do or are you just waiting for the Welfare checks to come in!

    I guess you didn’t really listen to the speech Obama gave in the middle east. He wants to be King of the world not of America. He is not even an American and you will see that once his TRUE birth certificate comes out. I hope you are happy with the “change” he promised everyone. Yeah, I agree with Jon and I said all during the campaign, he is the Anti-Christ!

    Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam!!!!

    Obama asserted in December, “I’ve always been a Christian,” and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim. “The only connection I’ve had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father’s side came from that country [Kenya]. But I’ve never practiced Islam.” In February, he claimed: “I have never been a Muslim. … other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when I was a child [Indonesia, 1967-71] I have very little connection to the Islamic religion.”

    “Always” and “never” leave little room for equivocation. But many biographical facts, culled mainly from the American press, suggest that, when growing up, the Democratic candidate for president both saw himself and was seen as a Muslim.

    Obama’s Kenyan birth father: In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. (1936–1982) was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named “Hussein”.

    Obama’s Indonesian family: His stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was also a Muslim. In fact, as Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng explained to Jodi Kantor of the New York Times: “My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.” An Indonesian publication, the Banjarmasin Post reports a former classmate, Rony Amir, recalling that “All the relatives of Barry’s father were very devout Muslims.”
    The public school: Paul Watson of the Los Angeles Times learned from Indonesians familiar with Obama when he lived in Jakarta that he “was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended.” Haroon Siddiqui of the Toronto Star visited the Jakarta public school Obama attended and found that “Three of his teachers have said he was enrolled as a Muslim.” Although Siddiqui cautions that “With the school records missing, eaten by bugs, one has to rely on people’s shifting memories,” he cites only one retired teacher, Tine Hahiyari, retracting her earlier certainty about Obama’s being registered as a Muslim.

    Koran class: In his autobiography, Dreams of My Father, Obama relates how he got into trouble for making faces during Koranic studies, thereby revealing he was a Muslim, for Indonesian students in his day attended religious classes according to their faith. Indeed, Obama still retains knowledge from that class: Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times, reports that Obama “recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them [to Kristof] with a first-rate accent.”
    Mosque attendance: Obama’s half-sister recalled that the family attended the mosque “for big communal events.” Watson learned from childhood friends that “Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque.” Barker found that “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers.” One Indonesia friend, Zulfin Adi, states that Obama “was Muslim. He went to the mosque. I remember him wearing a sarong” (a garment associated with Muslims).
    Piety: Obama himself says that while living in Indonesia, a Muslim country, he “didn’t practice [Islam],” implicitly acknowledging a Muslim identity. Indonesians differ in their memories of him. One, Rony Amir, describes Obama as “previously quite religious in Islam.”
    Obama’s having been born and raised a Muslim and having left the faith to become a Christian make him neither more nor less qualified to become president of the United States. But if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president.
    Interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors and friends show that Obama was not a regular practicing Muslim when he was in Indonesia, despite being listed as a Muslim on the registration form for the Catholic school, Strada Asisia, where he attended 1st through 3rd grades. At the time, the school most likely registered children based on the religion of their fathers, said [Israella Pareira] Darmawan, Obama’s former [1st-grade] teacher. Because Soetoro was a Muslim, Obama was listed as a Muslim, she said.About Obama’s step-father, Lolo Soetoro and his religiosity, Barker writes:
    In their first neighborhood, Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers, a few neighbors said. But Soetoro usually was too busy working, first for the Indonesian army and later for a Western oil company. “Sometimes Lolo went to the mosque to pray, but he rarely socialized with people,” said Fermina Katarina Sinaga, Obama’s 3rd-grade teacher at the Catholic school, who lived near the family. “Rarely, Barry [a nickname for Barack] went to the mosque with Lolo.”

    “Interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors and friends show that Obama was not a regular practicing Muslim when he was in Indonesia” – implying he was an irregularly practicing Muslim.
    “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers, a few neighbors said” – confirming that he did pray in the mosque.
    “Obama’s 3rd-grade teacher at the Catholic school, who lived near the family [said that] ‘Rarely, Barry went to the mosque with Lolo’” – confirming that Obama attended mosque services.

    Obama, who concentrated in sociology and received a certificate in African-American studies, examined how the attitudes of black alumni have changed over the course of their time at the University. “Will they become more or less motivated to benefit the Black community?” Obama wrote in her thesis.

    After surveying 89 black graduates, Obama concluded that attending the University as an undergraduate decreased the extent to which black alumni identified with the black community as a whole.

    Obama drew on her personal experiences as an example.

    “As I enter my final year at Princeton, I find myself striving for many of the same goals as my White classmates — acceptance to a prestigious graduate school or a high-paying position in a successful corporation,” she wrote, citing the University’s conservative values as a likely cause.

    “Predominately White universities like Princeton are socially and academically designed to cater to the needs of the White students comprising the bulk of their enrollments,” she said, noting the small size of the African-American studies department and that there were only five black tenured professors at the University across all departments.

    Obama studied the attitudes of black Princeton alumni to determine what effect their time at Princeton had on their identification with the black community. “My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my ‘Blackness’ than ever before,” she wrote in her introduction. “I have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don’t belong.”


    “Obama’s DOJ approves of armed Black Panthers at Voting Locations” ” Rev. Wright: I Meant “Zionists,” Not Jews” ” Barack Obama’s pastor says blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God Damn America” “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback”: Michelle Obama on her husband winning the Presidential Election.

    Glad he matured and moved away from the extreme marxists over in Hollywood. There are others who agree with him. If they have the courage to come out and not worry about any retaliation–you know, because that crowd is so accepting and inclusive of everyone, right?

    Unless you disagree with their politics or lifestyles…then you don’t work again.

    Yeah, c’mon let’s give Obama some time here, he’s (sorry I mean He’s) only had about six months and has quadrupled the deficit (and bush is the idiot). At this rate, by the time he’s done, America will be getting aid from Bangladesh and Cambodia. And yes it is only the right wingers using the term messiah or prophet, but that’s only to point out how left wingers fawn all over him like a cult leader. He could tell you to drink the kool aid and left wingers will be there cleaning out the cup with their finger to get every last drop of the messiah’s magic juice. In 4 years Obama is going to be so hated that as a backlash, I’m afraid that David Duke could become president. I lived in a communist country so I know it when I see it and Obama is it. I’ve never seen such a large group willing…no begging to lose their freedom and liberty to their own government. Jon Voigt is no philosopher but neither is any other idiot from hollywood. Seriously, can we stop following actors, people who know how to play pretend well, in teaching us wrong and right, c’mon America wake up, the world needs you.

    I’m not American, but I want the big badass America back. The one that scared the crap out of the countries none of you would ever live in. The one that kept everyone in line.
