Jon Voight unhappy with Obama's administration
One of the few conservatives in Hollywood, Jon Voight spoke out against President Obama and his job as president.
Voight is not shy to voice his conservative stance and this Saturday the seasoned actor gave his opinion on the Obama presidency. The Oscar winner appeared on Mike Huckabee's Fox News channel show and expressed his concerns and objections regarding the job Barack Obama is doing as President of the United States.
"My greatest heartache is that we sacrificed thousands of our American heroes liberating Iraq, only for President Obama to pull out all our troops, leaving Iraq now to be taken over by terrorists," Voight began. "What does Obama say about that? Nothing."
Voight went on to say how not only many things he believed the president would do came to pass, but that some of the scandals under his presidency are unacceptable.
"Governor Romney warned us about Russia's aggressions, now we have come to see them to fruition," Voight continued. "What does Obama say about that? Nothing."
The Ray Donovan star went on to speak about the dangers posed to Israel and the U.S. by Iran, noting that the Middle Eastern Muslim nation poses a big nuclear threat. He also touched on the Benghazi scandal, saying how Obama blamed the Republicans for wanting to make him look bad. "And still to this day we don't know the truth," Voight added.
"And let's not forget about the unspeakable way our veterans have been ignored," Voight said about the poor medical treatment war veterans have been receiving by the federal government. "And many are left to die in many of our veteran hospitals."
"Let us not forget the IRS scandal. Does he think the American people are stupid?" Voight complained, referring to the supposed lost emails and missing information regarding the tax revenue department's alleged targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups.
Voight concluded by getting emotional as he voiced more concern for his grandchildren's generation and their future.
"I'm thinking of this new generation," Voight said visibly choked up. "Let's do everything we can to protect our children and our generation."
