How can someone who has lied about closing guantanamo camp, lied about withdrawing from Afghanistan and Iraq, lied about the health care system, tried to stop freedom of expression, be awarded with this prestigious accolade. Oh I forgot he was a lawyer right? Just like Tony Blair's professional background and both are politician's. And I have always never trusted either of these professions!


That's a full paragraph for lies. I suggest you goto www.politifact.com... or www.factcheck.org... and brush up your knowledge before spewing false rhetoric and present yourself as illiterate in a room full of people.

I was hoping Sarah Palin would win it for her front line diplomacy with Russia but I'm not a partisan and I'm glad Obama won. The 2009 beer conference was inspirational, it was wonderful how he brought those two men together to work out their differences. It was one of the highlights of the year and a great moment I will never forget.

On behalf of myself and other likeminded Americans, please allow me to express my sincerest apology for this event. Many of us know there are a lot of great charitable leaders with years of hard-work and progress to show for their lifetime work towards peace. May they receive their proper reward in joy and spirit rather than this degraded piece of metal. With humility and respect, thank you to those who have honestly earned the right to be called a peacemaker.

Ironically you don't exist "in" your mind. Your consciousness exists as part of the field, .......Your mind is an antenna, believe it or not.
.....
If you want to experience yourself fully, purify your body, meditate, and it will all become clear, no need to ask for proof, as the key has always been within yourself.

So through meditation and purification of your physical self you have evolved into someone who "simply knows" despite all evidence to the contrary that the POTUS is a CIA plant, born in Kenya and a homosexual?

You, by far, have my vote for most entertaining of the fringe Anti-Obama crowd.

This is the beginning of the end 2012 is on its way. The NWO has installed the 3rd anti Christ.

Now that prominence other than being president of the US is established, followers will now flock to this false Messiah. The wheels are in motion, a Napoleonic attitude soon to follow, world domination is next and then World War III. Nukes will fall humanity will cease to exist. 2013 may never be seen.

just my rant and non Psychic prediction.


You have been warned.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this but letters of nominations for the nobel peace prize closed on 2/1/09...only a couple of weeks into his presidency. A nomination based only on what he said he would do if he was elected president and not based on anything he has done as president.

That makes it even worse.

Now I'm REALLY wondering if the Obama-anti-christ people are right. The guy came out of nowhere, had no experience, is a proven liar and racist, but suddenly he's leader of the free world and the entire world is ga-ga over him.

I've always thought he was just a tool for his puppet masters.

Now I'm thinking he's something much more sinister.

Check this out ... Story Here
Catholic Bishops aren't known for being the brightest bunch, but here you have Catholic Bishops in Africa comparing Obama to the O.T. prophets. They are practically drooling over him.

They have all lost their minds.
The Nobel Prize Committee. The Bishops. All of them.


I understand your hatred and jealous attitude against Obama. Truth is always bitter.

Yes, that's more or less it.

But I still read much the same stuff the rest of you read, so don't try and pass my opinion off as uninformed. Decisions are made by emotion, by the spirit, based on information collected by the mind.

The spiritual is linked to the material, they're only incompatible in missguided minds. Focusing on one over the other is missing the point.

Besides, you don't really need spiritual intuition to see what Obama is, all the signs are clearly laid out, and this is the information age. He can't hide his circumstance, which is that he is the creation of an massive elitist mind control program, intended on getting global domination and us to basically kill ourselves as we keep falling into negatives.

Even from a materialistic point of view, defending Obama is untenable, as you yourself showed by your recourse of the invalid "evidence to the contrary" statement, which is trying to prove a negative and qualifying my opinion as fringe, when even biased media polls like rasmussen have to acknowledge the massive backdraft against Obama.

You're on the wrong side of history my friend, enjoy the ride.

Did someone get the names mixed up when they were presenting the award?

Obama is waging a war in the middle east right now, how can he get the PEACE prize? I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the headline



Yet Hisham Qasim, Egyptian democracy and human rights activist, said he was "shocked" Obama won.

"He has achieved nothing. He's stumbling. He hasn't achieved any of his promises and nothing is working. He promised to close Guantanamo and now that's not going to happen, and the Arab-Israeli conflict looks like it's going to get very nasty."

edition.cnn.com...

Haha, he's not too happy.

By the way, the poll on the CNN front page is "Should President Obama have won the Nobel Peace Prize?". Come on guys get voting lol.

I have impression that you don’t fully understand why Obama was awarded by Noble prize. There are two reasons. One is that Norwegians have great sentiment to socialist and liberals. Almost all laureates of the last 20 years of Nobel peace prize and Noble literature prize are liberals or socialist liberals.

The second cause is to that they see that Obama is only marionette of much powerful people which stays in the shadow. They can manipulate Obama as their marionette because this man is really no one. Everyone easily could see that in the world. So the Noble prize goes to his hands to give this man without authority some authority and courage to break marionette ropes and make his own decisions.

He's not the first "black" president of America, he is barely even black, in the particular sense that the majority of the US black population descends from slaves which were brought in by European slave drivers and he is half white and half Kenyan... Even his racial profile is an exaggeration, intended to promote racial tension, which the media so eagerly picks up on, even more so than any actual racist still out there in this multicultural XXI 'st century...

It dosen't matter, his race neither qualifies or disqualifies him, but people keep talking about it, so let's tell it how it is. He is an elitist, he cares more about the genetics of the rich and infamous than he cares about any particular ethnic group.

OK you win my vote...

I find the idea that you have concluded through meditation and physical purification that the POTUS is a Homosexual, Kenyan born, Manchurian candidate under the mind control of the "elite" hell bent on world domination and mass suicide....more entertaining than he is the Anti-Christ come about to sheppherd the apocolypse in 2012.

ATS can be a little frightening at times when I think that there are real people tapping those keys....

I like him. Nothing personal or political against him.
But this is just uber-ridiculous.
I guess the Nobel prize has just lost another chunk of its credibility.

But surely the voting board isn't composed of Norwegians only, is it?
If it is (sorry, not interested enough to go googling for this), shouldn't it then be called the Bunch of Norwegians' Opinion Prize?

This is the reason Obama received the Noble Prize.


There may be lots of hope, as the committee notes. But on our Obameter, which rates the progress of Obama's promises, most of Obama's significant promises on international relations are still rated In the Works.

The most notable Promise Kept was his pledge to Give a speech at a major Islamic forum in the first 100 days of his administration, Promise No. 178. Obama told the Turkish parliament in April that the United States is not at war with Islam. In June, he gave a notable speech in Cairo where he called for a "new beginning" between the U.S. and the Islamic world. We also gave him a Promise Kept for promise No. 125, Direct military leaders to end the war in Iraq.

The list of Obama's promises we've rated In the Works, though, is much longer.

A few that we've rated In the Works:

• Promise No. 195, Seek verifiable reductions in nuclear stockpiles. Obama has pursued negotiations with the Russians for reducing nuclear weapons.

• Promise No. 196, Extend monitoring and verification provisions of the START I Treaty. Treaty negotiations are ongoing.

• Promise No. 128, Launch robust diplomatic effort with Iraq and its neighbors. Diplomatic efforts are ongoing; we're waiting to measure their vigor.

• Promise No. 455, Work with the United Nations on climate change. Lots of talk, but we're waiting for concrete action.

• Promise No. 170, Double U.S. spending on foreign aid to $50 Billion a year by 2012. We'll see whether Congress approves the budgets for this.

But not all of Obama's international efforts have met with positive progress. We've rated two promises Stalled that affect how the world sees the U.S., both having to do with the treatment of terrorism suspects.

We found that Promise No. 177, Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center, is meeting with opposition from Congress. We found that No. 178, Develop an alternative to President Bush's Military Commissions Act, is Stalled because Obama has backtracked from developing an alternative to military tribunals to adjudicate detainees.

The Nobel Prize committee said it awarded its prize to stimulate "international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world's leading spokesman." Obama has just over three years to make good on his campaign promises. We'll be watching to see if Obama's ideas result in measurable results.

Besides that Congrats to Mr. Obama. This is a sign that his global goodwill has only increased not diminished as people claimed after he lost the Olympic bid.

I am no professional in the matter, but it seems like a clever move by the Nobel Prize Committee to award him this prize at this particular moment in time. Seems like they are playing the peace card on Obama in a time when the war hawks are talking Iran invasion and new Afghan strategy. How can a man who has promised so much hope and peace continue to support this statuesque policy of war? The cards are stacked in the favor of peace now due to this timely move by the Nobel Prize Committee and the good PTB. That, or he needs this shroud of peace, politically, as rapport to win people over down the road for his administration's new policies; good or bad (we will see)...
