Jon Voight Likens President Obama to Hugo Chavez, Endorses Mitt Romney

Brangelina's parents are not fans of President Barack Obama.

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney can count on Brad Pitt's mom Jane to vote for him ... and now Angelina Jolie's outspoken father Jon Voight too.

The 73-year-old actor and unabashed conservative is slamming President Barack Obama, comparing him to Venezuelan socialist leader Hugo Chavez.

Again, the man is not one to mince words.

Obama, B

"The media has been taken over by this administration," Voight told The Daily Caller at the Republican National Convention this week in Tampa.

"It's not less than what has happened in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez, really, because you can't get the information through," Voight added.

"I'm giving you this because I want to get the press my opinion. You can put it in any way you want to. But, it's become pure propaganda."

"We should be appalled. America, guys, wake up. You should be appalled that they can get away with it. The Republican Party is a victim of a bias."

"It's been going on for all this time and it's getting worse and worse. Now this? Come on, people, stand up," added Jon Voight, who endorsed Romney.

"I think because of Gov. Mitt Romney's great talents, his great compassion, his great gifts of leadership, he's going to win this election," he said.

"The people are going to become aware of these qualities."
