Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized Barack Hussein Obama's plan to revive the ailing U.S. economy through reckless spending.

Speaking at a Republican fundraiser that raised $14.5 million at the Washington Convention Center Monday night, Gingrich said, "Bureaucrats managing companies does not work, politicians dominating the economy does not work,"

But the harshest criticism for Obama's policies was delivered by actor Jon Voight, otherwise known as actress Angelina Jolie's father.

"Everything Obama has recommended has turned out to be disastrous. We are becoming a weak nation,” said Voight, calling Obama a "false prophet." Republicans need to find their way back to power to free the nation from “this Obama oppression,” he said.

McConnell and Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, who followed Voight, seemed pleasantly surprised.

“I’m still just reveling that someone from Hollywood made a speech like that. I hope you’re going to be able to find work after this,” said McConnell. “I really enjoyed that." [link]

    This comes from a man whose daughter refuses to have any contact with him in I don't know how many years. This man is not worth his salt.

  • babysoft15

    I didn't read the post, but I wanted to say GOOD MORNING to All!

  • sanaas

    Jon Boy need to try in figure out why his daughter can't stand his azz.

  • luvly1957

    Now America sees why he is a loner. No one in his own family talks to him cuz his azz is crazy. And we won't even begin to talk about Newt, did he not drop out of the lime lite several yrs ago due to his transgressions with other women while he was married and the Republican Party was harping on family values. Yes, Republicans great role models u have, two false prophets.

  • kwallace577

    i am with sanaas...um his own daughter will not speak to him so what the hail does HE know? and it is not as if he is a hollywood powerhouse or really all that important in the hollywood grand scheme of things...so how much does his opinion REALLY matter? i mean really?

    he NEED to meet his grandkids and worry 'bout THAT! cause as fast as angie and brad is making and taking them (in) if he don't get started soon...he gonna look up and it is gonna be 10-11 of 'em....

  • kwallace577

    okay i take that back about him not being a powerhouse... but he ain't all of that.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    I love when Sandra says "Barack Hussein Obama." I looove that tactic! I'm going to start saying "George Walker Bush" and "William Jefferson Clinton"

    I'm also going to stop using titles like "president" and "doctor."

  • Anna

    His daughter does not have contact with him because he cheated on her mom. Not sure why she keeps the grand kids away from him. I guess she did not cheat with Brad on Jen. All grand kids should know their grandparents. This sounds so "Tori, Candi Spelling" to me. Time to grow up.

    BTW, with the recent reports of David Caradine(sp) doesn't the pic of Jon look like he is into devious sexual stuff. LOL.

    Well who would actually pay any credence to what he has said? His own damn daughter will not speak to him. I think the man got mental issues.

    I'm sorry, when was his last successful movie? Like in the 90's or something. He can go sit down cause his star fell along time ago, making him irrelevant. His daughter has more fame and pull than he does.

    It's just funny how everyone has an opinion, yet, they didn't bother to run for the presidency, but can sit on their azz and criticize every move he makes. If he thought he could have done a better than, or would have been a better candidate than Obama, then he should have ran. And that goes for any and everyone whose spitting on this man's efforts. That's the problem with our nation, now people want to sit and criticize, pick apart, nit-pick, be overly critical about things they couldn't even begin to understand. Easy to sit on your fat azz and talk about someone whose trying to actually do something. People want to sit and complain, but got no real answers or plan of action for the problems our world is facing today, YET, when Obama does something to try to improve the state we are in, you got people out here criticizing his decisions, but don't have any of the solutions themselves...Whatever.

    Next!!

  • SunnyPA

    @teecee ... ROFL

    I'm not an obama fan but that was funny.

    Republicans provide no solutions or even suggestions to make things better. They put the double R in Irrelevant.

    Jon Voight is a D-List. He cannot make power moves in Hollywood where you'd expect him to know a thing or two, what does he know about good or bad government policies?

  • Dhoward1913

    Sandra, are you serious. Who cares about Jon Voight. He's a drunk!

  • Gagirl73

    He can say what he wants, Obama is still his President!
    And that's a fact!
    Have a GREAT DAY everyone!!!
