Personal Quote:

He's really extreme, but he's always trying to say something to cover it. He's like a Leftist from the Sixties. I was on the Left, that's why I know who he is. He says he'll talk to everybody like Hamas and Iran, but it's simple-minded candy he's throwing to the extreme left wing. He'd be the biggest disaster for Israel - and all democracies - that I can think of. - On Senator Barack Obama. See more »

His father Elmer Voytka, later Voight (born 29 October 1909 and died June 1973), was a professional golfer. See more »
