Voight calls Obama ‘good actor’


“Democracy is an extraordinary adventure. It’s difficult, full of daring and risk and danger. But it’s the greatest gift we have,” the Academy Award-winning actor said Tuesday during a visit to The Washington Times newsroom.

“The people who voted for President Obama are just beginning to wake up to exactly what they brought in. The ‘change’ they envisioned is not the ‘change’ they have gotten.” Mr. Voight said.

He likens the Obama administration to a Hollywood script, rife with technique and craft, very compelling but not necessarily real.

“It is a very, very slick, relentless campaign to build Obama as the answer to all our needs. They know what people want and they give it in a package that can be read off a teleprompter. That’s not what our country is based upon,” Mr. Voight said.

He offered a terse review of the principal player.

“Obama is a very good actor. He knows how to play it. And he is very adept at creating this ‘Obama’ – this character who is there whenever the world needs something,” he said..

“The news media has lied itself out of the business. Now, real accountability journalism. That says it all. That’s what’s been missing so long,” he said.

He is vexed by bureaucracy, big government and soft-peddling by political correctness.

“This lie of political correctness is bringing this country down. You just want to break through it all.”
