Obama in the running for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize


www.google.com

OSLO (AP) — President Barack Obama and his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy are believed to be among a record 205 nominations for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

The secretive five-member awards committee, which released its final nominations count on Friday, keeps the names of candidates secret for 50 years. But some of the thousands of people with nominating rights do announce their nominees.

"It is very easy to be nominated for the peace prize, but that is in no way an endorsement by the committee," said Geir Lundestad, the Norwegian awards committee's nonvoting secretary.

The committee said 172 individuals and 33 organizations were on the list by this week's final deadline. The previous record was 199, in 2005.

"There was a very good geographical spread," Lundestad said. The nominations include those postmarked by a Feb. 1 deadline, and those added by the committee itself at its first meeting of the year, which was Thursday, he said.

This year, the name of the U.S. president has been put forward by unidentified nominators, although he has been in office only a matter of weeks.

Wow... just wow. He's been in power for a few weeks and he's somehow contributed more to world peace than those who have worked on the issue their whole lives (eg UN peace negotiators)?

I know some people love him for his policies, I know that some love him because he's the first black president, I know that some love him because the celebrities and the media indoctrinate them to... etc.

However every single day I am more and more amazed by the ridiculous, sycophantic, deification of Obama.

You thought Karl Rove was sneaky? He's nothing when compared to Obama's spin doctor (Axelrod)... Rove may have made a president out of Bush, but Axelrod has created a God out of Obama.

Didn't you read your own article?


"It is very easy to be nominated for the peace prize, but that is in no way an endorsement by the committee," said Geir Lundestad, the Norwegian awards committee's nonvoting secretary.


And being nominated doesn't obviously necessarily mean that you 1) will win, and 2) even deserve to be there.

Does it shock you that much that someone would nominate Obama for this, in light that "it is very easy to be nominated for the peace prize"?



UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W Bush have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by a Norwegian politician.

Harald Tom Nesvik, a member of the right-wing Party for Progress, said that he had nominated the two world leaders for fighting terrorism and promoting world peace. source


That sneaky Bush and his spin doctor!

Yes it is easy to be nominated for the Peace Prize, none the less this is still one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard in my life. Anyone who things this man deserves the peace prize is a blind supporter or just a plain idiot.

Who knows maybe he'll turn out to be worthy (I highly doubt it, but you never know) someday, but not today.

I understand what you are saying, but it is even easier to win it.

Look at the past winners, Yassar Arafat, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore. So it really isn't that far out there to think that Obama has a chance at winning it.

Exactly, the whole award is a nonsense, a place where the "great" and "good" can pat themselves on the back about how enlightened they are

According to Wikipedia, the award goes:



en.wikipedia.org...

"to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."


If Bush deserved to be nominated, then Obama deserves a few of them.


But neither has done what it takes to be awarded the honor. Being nominated? Who cares? It's who wins that matters, and I don't really think that matters in the scheme of things, either.


This is much ado about nothing, IMO.

Peace is a term that most commonly refers to an absence of aggression, violence or hostility, but which also represents a larger concept wherein there are healthy or newly-healed interpersonal or international relationships, safety in matters of social or economic welfare, the acknowledgment of equality and fairness in political relationships and, in world matters, peacetime; a state of being absent any war or conflict. Reflection on the nature of peace is also bound up with considerations of the causes for its absence or loss. Among these potential causes are: insecurity, social injustice, economic inequality, political and religious radicalism, and acute nationalism.
en.wikipedia.org...


Absence of agression, stop the war and stop the occupation, end violence and hostile rethoric.
Fiscal conservatism, equality and fairness.

Conclusion: I nominate Congressman Ron Paul.

this just falls into place with the "plan" build Demi God Obama up, you know the old saying "you catch more flys with honey then vinegar" just more fuel for the blind sheeple to follow

This is just retarded. The powers of be are pulling strings again.

This agenda in a few words is basically. The elite giving Obama a plaque or a record in history for a generation later to look back.

Obama won a nobel peace price, "oh I knew he was a great man"

Give me a fupping break. They are already trying to write a false history.

It doesn't matter how easy it is. The minutely short time that Obama has spent in office in no way merits a nomination, even by the odd fanatic or two.

Bush and Blair may have been nominated, but only after at least a year of being in charge.

For Obama to be nominated after 2 months is nothing but a sign of how deep his cult of personality runs in some people.

I totally agree with ModernAcademia :
Ron Paul has served over 30 years in office advocating non-violence and isolationism and nobody notices him enough to nominate him.

Yet Obama saunters around doing bugger all for 2 months and he's somehow worthy.

To me, that most definitely indicates that Obama's PR campaign (ie his cult of personality) is incredibly strong.

I wouldn't be surprised if his Darfur advisor and buddy George Clooney had him nominated.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It wouldn't surprise me if he won it.

What do you mean, "managed"? Do you think he had something to do with the nomination?

Honestly wouldn't surprise me tbh, why would anyone else recommend him? all he has done is give out 100's of billions of dollars since he's been in power, he hasn't made any steps yet towards curing the middle eastern problems or the healthcare problems in his own country or anything else for that matter.

You said that everyone is treating him as though he is the new black jesus. I imagine one of them would want him recommended for the reasons they think he's jesus.




he hasn't made any steps yet towards curing the middle eastern problems


That's not his job.



or the healthcare problems in his own country or anything else for that matter.


Have you read the stimulus and the budget? Apparently not.

But I got the answer to my question. You think he nominated himself. Ok.

Obama has a job, taking orders from his lobbyists, backers, bankers, and ruling families who give him the power to carry out such tasks.

In his positition it his job to hold responsiblity in sorting out the Middle east. If he and the zionist agenda don't want to do so.

Then step the f*** out of Iraq, the Middle east and anything to do with the Middle east. America has left alot of skeletons there.

I don't think Obama had anything to do with it.

However I think Axelrod et al were SO successful at their job of turning Obama from a politician into a deity, that people have been brainwashed to a certain extent. I've always maintained that (and the growing cult of personality), and I offer this story as more evidence of it.

I'm with BH here, who cares if someone nominated him? I didn't vote for him and I disagree with alot of what he has done so far, but I perfer him taking it home then Al Gore.

It is funny that someone thought he self nominated. Do you really think he cares about the Peace Prize? He is President, I think winning that award is a little more satisfying.

Once Obama fails

America will finally realise, that the elite has been trying to decept the people of the country for years.

They will realise that Obama was a total conjob.
They will realise, that Obama and no leader, will save you or us.
They will realise that the ruling elite used Bush, Obama, Clinton and chin pun yung as Puppets to fulfill their goals.

This thread titel will help you realise the pictures they are already trying to paint with Obama


Get with it people Obama maybe a nice man, but in reality. He is just doing what he is told. It's no conspiracy anymore that the ruling familes are dictating this reality.


2012 IS TRURLY COMING
it's an amazing feeling.
