Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight threw his support behind Mitt Romney today, telling a crowd of hundreds at a local restaurant that Newt Gingrich "falls short" of having the characteristics needed to run the White House.
"Governor Romney is a man of faith, honor, love, and truth," said Voight. "These are the first very important qualities a president must have. He is strong, honest, and wants to bring the country back to its exceptional place, where we have been for hundreds and hundreds of years, until President Obama decided to follow his father's footsteps and take us to socialism."
"I'm sorry to say Speaker Gingrich may fall short in many ways," said Voight. "Please join me to bring in Gov. Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States."

"I, Jon Voight, can say, without hesitation, that Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest. When he decided to run for president, I know he did it with a true conviction to bring this country back to prosperity. He is the only one who can do it. No frills, no fuss, only candid truths."
This article IS from 2012.
You do realize the barrage of hate and vitriol you have just unleashed on Mr. Voight, don’t you?
Jon Voight loves America. He has the guts to stand up to Hollywood.
However, posting this article from 2012 is questionable...
This was in 2012
Why now ?
(1939) Germany Invades Poland
Voight is a brave man
Saw and heard him at the Tea Party “ Kill the Bill” rally to try to stop obamacare
Ok. That was in 2012. How is this relevant to today?
So what? So he was fooled by Mutt Romney. So was I. I voted for him. I even regretted that he didn’t win.
Now I realize it wouldn’t have made the slightest difference, because he and Obama are owned by the same people.

Jon Voight is a good and decent man, a true patriot. To take this 4-year-old article and post it as if it were today’s news is, at the very least, disingenuous. That was then, this is now. Circumstances are FAR different.
Besides, Voight is backing Trump - still a courageous position for one in Hollywood.
In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead...
