Cokie Calls Jon Voight "Cringemaking"

Cokie Roberts didn't hold back on those health care protests headlined by actor Jon Voight, who in a speech Thursday said Obama “has had 20 years of subconscious programming by Rev. Wright to damn America.”

Calling Voight's performance "cringemaking," Cokie added "exceptionalism isn’t optimism…It makes you feel just very uncomfortable. And that is not where the future of any party is."
