Jon Voight Asks Some Important Questions About Obama

Written on June 27, 2011 by Ann-Marie Murrell

 

One of my favorite Facebook friends is actor and Conservative activist Jon Voight.  The day he accepted my friend request I literally went nuts, screaming to my husband (who was working upstairs), “JON VOIGHT ACCEPTED MY FRIEND REQUEST!”  (Luckily I have a great husband who understands me completely.)


Since then, I’ve tried to calm down about it but still—these days, any Hollywood- type who puts their career on the line to speak out for ‘Our Side’ is absolutely a hero in my book.  It doesn’t hurt that Jon Voight was already one of my all-time favorite actors.  I could probably work up some tears right now thinking of the final scene of “The Champ”…sniff…And of course there’s ‘The Deer Hunter’, ‘Midnight Cowboy’, ‘Coming Home’—I could go on forever.  Seriously.


Needless to say, I have greatly enjoyed reading Mr. Voight’s amazingly laser-beam-accurate posts on Facebook—but recently he outdid himself.


Over a period of two days, Jon posted 10 different questions about Mr. Obama.  He asked the simple, direct questions that we should all be demanding the Main Stream Media-types ask the American public.


Jon asked his questions during a time when the MSM was pouring over Sarah Palin’s e-mails trying to find some iota of dirt on her—while at the same time a Democrat named Weiner was able to go full-frontal (to Lord knows who) and was deemed ‘too important to lose’.


Jon asked his questions while the MSM was ridiculing Newt Gingrich for losing some of his campaign staff– while the president has lost SIX key advisors in the last year, including this week’s ship-jumper Austan Goolsbee, Obama’s top Economic Advisor of only 9 months.


Jon asked his questions while the MSM was doing everything they could to divert the public’s attention away from the subpoenas issued to Erik Holder’s Department of Justice for their role in the ‘Gunrunner’ scandal.  They also tried to make us all forget that Michelle Obama would soon take yet another extravagant vacation to Africa with her daughters, mother and whoever else suits her fancy.  (Remember last year’s Spain trip?)


I think it goes without saying that if Barack Hussein Obama were a Republican president, (not that a Republican would ever have a Muslim name) he would be skewered by the Main Stream Media 24/7.  Along with destroying what was left of our economy and trouncing on our Constitution, they would also be jumping up and down screaming about the fact that he’s gotten America involved in FOUR WARS instead of two…


But instead, we hear their evil wrath about Sarah Palin’s Paul Revere comments.


So following are Jon Voight’s questions.  They are the questions every talk show host, news anchor and public figure should be asking (but they won’t).


All I did was copy and paste Jon’s status’s exactly as he wrote and posted them on his Facebook page.


His questions are brilliantly simple and straightforward, yet complicated—just like I imagine the “real” Jon Voight to be.


If any other of our presidents
had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to

“Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador
when it was “The 5th of May” (Cinco de Mayo),
and then continue to flub it when he tried again,

wouldn’t you have winced in embarrassment?


If any other of our presidents
joined the country of Mexico and sued a
State in the United States to force that State
to continue to allow Illegal Immigration,
would you question his patriotism
and wonder who’s side he was on?


If any other of our presidents
had put 87,000 workers out of work
by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on
offshore oil drilling on companies that have
one of the best safety records of any industry…
because one foreign company had an accident,
would you have agreed?


If any other of our presidents
had been the first President to need a
teleprompter installed to be able to get through
a press conference, would you have laughed and said
this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is
really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?


If any other of our presidents
had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars
to take his First Lady to a play in NYC,
would you have approved?


If any other of our presidents
had given the Queen of England an IPod
containing videos of his speeches,
would you have thought it to be
a proud moment for America ?


If any other of our presidents
had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia,
would you have approved?


If any other of our presidents
had visited Austria and made reference
to the nonexistent “Austrian language,”
would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?


If any other of our presidents
would have flown all the way to Denmark
to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics
would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town,
would you not have thought he was
a self-important, conceited, egotistical jerk?


If any other of our presidents
had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel
to go plant a single tree on Earth Day,
would you have concluded he’s a Hypocrite?


So, tell me again,
what is it about Obama
that makes him so brilliant and impressive?


Can’t think of anything?
Then you’d better start worrying.
He’s done all these things in 28 months –
and you have less than 19 months
to come up with an answer.


All it takes for evil to triumph
is for good men to do nothing.
