Actor Jon Voight says President Obama is unqualified and that Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden warned the nation of exactly that fact during the presidential campaign.
Interviewed Tuesday by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Tuesday, the actor also said that Obama is leading the nation toward Marxism.
At a Republican fundraiser Monday, Voight said, “Obama really thinks he is a soft-spoken Julius Caesar.”
Explaining that thought, Voight continued, “He thinks he's going to conquer the world with his soft-spoken sweet talk and really thinks he's going to bring all the enemies of the world into a little playground where they'll swing each other back and forth.”
As for Clinton, Voight says, “We were warned by Hillary Clinton that he had no experience, that
he had no qualifications.”
And as for Biden, “We were warned by his now vice president, Joe Biden, he had no experience. So he was a novice. And now we're getting what we could have expected, if we had listened.”
And what is it we’re getting? “We have a fellow who's bringing us to chaos and socialism,” Voight says.
It goes beyond socialism, he adds.
“Well, listen. Pravda said that we were amazingly, speeding towards Marxism at an amazing rate,” Voight says.
“I think people just have to acknowledge it, say, yes that's what's happening here, fellows. This is a very extreme agenda.”
Voight showed particular scorn for Obama’s economic policy. “Take a look at… the stimulus package and his proposed budget. What is it? What is it going to do for our country?” he asks.
“It's going to leave our grandchildren with great burden and great debt. Is it going to get us jobs? Has it done anything to get us jobs? Obama himself said we're going to hit a ceiling of 8 percent unemployment. We are now at 9.4 percent unemployment.”
When O'Reilly asked if the economy is headed for collapse, Voight responded, “That's where we're headed.”
Most experts disagree with Voight on the economy.
Economist Nouriel Roubini, nicknamed Dr. Doom for his pessimistic forecasts, says the global recession is likely to bottom at the end of the year, though U.S. growth will remain below potential afterwards, Reuters reports.
