Peter Fonda calls Obama 'traitor' at Cannes (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110518/ennew_afp/entertainmentfilmfestivalcannesusobamafonda_201105 18154556 - broken link)

"I sent an email to President Obama saying, 'You are a f(expletive) traitor,' using those words... 'You're a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military -- in this case the coastguard -- what they can and could not do, and telling us, the citizens of the United States, what we could or could not do'."

Let me know when he can say that on American soil.

Oh those silly Fondas, always talking down their own country while on foreign soil. Family traditions die hard.

Not exactly. Peter was speaking directly to Obama, not supporting our nation's enemies, not our nations troops in combat telling them to give up, and not telling our returning troops they are liars when they reported the torture they endured at the hands of the communist troops.

It's becoming so CLEAR now.

I have to admit, THAT was funny.

I don't have a problem with Peter Fonda expressing his views about Obama if he does it on our soil. Call me old fashioned but if you are going to air your dirty laundry do it in your own backyard and not elsewhere: location, location, location.

According to the article, he said this directly to Obama in an email the week before. If true, he was just repeating what he had already told Obama in an email. Not quite the same as what Jane Fonda did.

I agree, but what he did and said is nothing like what Jane Fonda did.

So nice to see the fickle right falling in love with a drug using Hollywood hippie radical from the '60s

I wasn't comparing what he did to what his sister did other than point out that they seem to do their trash talk on foreign soil.
