Yes of course 6 billion people are all against Obama. How the hell did he win the election?


Read again. I said that 5 Norwegian judges does not equate to 'worldwide' appreciation of his 'vision'.
Actually, what this has achieved is worldwide derision. Obama is a laughing stock now. If the string pullers wanted to demolish him, they could not have done a better job.
And yes, best to ask how he won the elections so maybe people can learn for the future. How could a poor achiever, with dubious parentage, dubious nationality, dubious eligibilty and a past that would never have allowed security clearance for most jobs, have ever been elected for President?
You are so right in bringing that question to the forefront...lol

5 people with a rather strange agenda, as against 6 billion or so. How does that mean that rather a lot of people like him? 5 is really not a lot of people no matter how you twist it.


Right, you said 5 people were for him and suggested that the rest of the entire world was against him. I wonder how I got confused.

The reality is, Obama is liked by a large majority of the world's population. Including the majority of the people here in the United States that happened to vote him into office.

It's not like this is the most unliked person in the history of the world that 5 people in Norway decided to take pity for.

I'm sure there are some. But I don't see much of that. If you are insinuating that I "prop up Obama no matter what", you're simply mistaken. You're wrong. Support for Obama in some issues does not equate to unwavering support no matter what. I have been accused of it, but I can show you post after post of mine that sre pretty critical of him.

The politically-split committee (3 left and 2 right) voted unanimously for him, but the truth is that the world rather likes him a lot.

If our president were a real man, he would announce that he could not accept the Peace Prize until all of our combat troops are home. His acceptance speech could have then been how he has swallowed pride, reversed course, and will make it mission priority one to recall the troops.

He would then have done something real. That, would be change.

The writers from SNL have more insight than these clowns.

There is nothing noble about being a typical puppet for the DC mafia, and nothing peaceful about excusing torture and continuing to slaughter innocent Afghans / Iraqis.

Ron Paul would have been much more deserving had these ridiculous little people wanted to applaud someone with a legit vision and track record for promoting peace.

obamas road to peace is paved with dead people.

ATS is on my home screen for my browser. I just woke up and this is the first thing i saw. It ruined my thanksgiving. We should be giving thanks for Gods bounty and sharing it with the less fortunate like the Native Americans did with the pioneers out here. Which is remarkable considering all the hate between the 2 races. Its all about coming together and helping each other out instead of starving. What has Obama done to stop starvation? Really nothing at all...

Hes all talk and no do. Kudos for trying bud but next thanksgiving I want to see some starving people getting the food they deserve or else Mr.Obama is just a blow hard to me.

I'm also sure there is some of that.. apparently I see a lot more of it than you do. I happen to think the amount of blind hatred of Obama by his detractors comes pretty close to equaling the blind adoration given to him by his supporters... and find it funny how the two sides tend to cancel each other out. Almost as if it were orchestrated that way. No insinuations meant there either. So ... mistaken.. and wrong.... okie dokie.

As for your comments on blind support... I would disagree, in as much as it would depend on why said support is being given. If the support is justifiable, I wouldn't classify it as blind adoration. If on the other hand there is nothing to justify that support... well .. blind adoration might be putting it kindly.

Again I would ask what laudable things has the man done?

How has he made things better?

The only thing accomplished by giving President Obama this award is to further trivialize the relevance of the award itself. About now I'd put it on par with the "Goodhousekeeping Seal of Approval".

All sorts of reasons will be given for why this is a terrible thing, but the truth is, Obama was honored with an prestigious world-wide award, meaning that a lot of people like him, appreciate him and his vision for the relationship of the US in the world... and some people just can't freaking stand that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
I couldn't agree with you more!
this country is going to hate and gripe itself to death. Much easier than getting behind positive vision and plans.

If you mean that they can't stand that a War-time president received a humanitarian/peace award....then I agree.

I can't stand it either. It's ridiculous. I am more deserving of the award than he is...I speak of peace and it least I"m not conducting war in 3 countries.

Actions speak far louder than words...Obama is WEAK at best on action and everyone knows it.

See you don't have to do anything to get the Noble Peace Prize.

But next year ABOVE TOP SECRET will recieve this much deserved award. Who did we bring peace to, again? Oh yes those Aliens and Jesus. We have given a peace of our minds to that, piggy flu. And 9/11 we lost our minds trying to figure that one out.

Obama quite rightly won the Nobel prize for peace for his efforts to make nuclear weapons obsolete by testing the Rods from God, non nuclear weapon by blasting it into the moon, is that what they blasted into the moon? Anti nuclear people may regard that as worthy of a noble prize, but the newer weapon is probably just as dangerous as the nukes. Whether the award was meant as a distraction from the moon shot is another matter. Now they will want to test this new weapon on earth, wonder what prize they will give him for that.

My first reaction to this news was shock and disbelief.

Then came hysterical laughter,

now just disgust a day later.


I would have voted for the Dude that threw the shoes at Bush myself

My commiserations to the dishonoured Mr Nobel


This world has become surreal

The only award Obama should be receiving is an award for the most amount of promises broken by any president in his first term. What a joke
I cannot believe the way he has turned out part of me hoped for change but the majority of me knew he would be a massive let down

I wondered how people were going to defend Obama on this and as you always have BH you are the best at makeing a silk purse out of a sows ear.

Oh I get it, a person has to do nothing,other then have a gift of gab,a good speech writer and be willing to lie untell there blue in the face,Oh and make it sound convinceing.So now that we both agree that nothing other then a campaign speech is required to receive the PRIZE,how do we know that he is not just full of hot air tell he does something to back up his retoric? Isian't this putting the horse before the cart or is this just how Socialist do this sort of thing?

I mean I always thought a persons achievements were rewarded not a gift of gab,but then again Obama is a whole new idea isian't he.

We woke up yesterday to tremendous news: The Nobel Committee has awarded this year's Peace Prize to President Barack Obama.

The President made a conscious decision from the beginning of his presidency to promote American ideals through re-invigorated diplomacy, talking to rivals as well as allies, and inspiring us all to put what binds us together ahead of what pushes us apart. Yesterday's news is a clear sign that the United States has returned to its long-standing role as a world leader.

It's also a reminder of why we all worked so hard to elect Barack Obama as president of the United States. Hearing the President announce that he will accept the award as a "call to action," I was inspired once again:

"...I know that throughout history, the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it's also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes. And that is why I will accept this award as a call to action -- a call for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century."

The news has left me deeply proud to be an American. So I want to congratulate President Obama, and give every American the opportunity to join me in saying "Congratulations, Mr. President."

Send a message of congratulations to the President.

President Obama's efforts to bring world leaders together are helping the people of the world face monumental challenges like nuclear arms proliferation, conflict resolution and climate change. His deep commitment to constructive solution and building alliances is bringing about a safer America and a more peaceful world.

It's exactly the change we fought so hard for.

The prize reflects a world that all Americans want to build. For our nation, it brings a sense of enormous pride. But it also brings a sense of deep humility about the work that remains if we are to resolve the global problems facing humanity.

As President Obama continues to work for a world in which conflicts are resolved peacefully and prosperity is widely shared, we will stand with him. And today, we're taking a moment to simply say, "Congratulations":

Sincerely,

Governor Tim Kaine
Chairman

I just thought I would share this with everyone.

I agree. I like him myself. (And I am not an american.)

But this award, NOW..... I think it's ridiculous and if anything, counterproductive.

P.S. The one good thing, IMO, is that this may damage the already extremely tarnished reputation of the prize to the point when it's abolished.

In the wide scheme of things does it matter that he got this award? It hopefuly does not give him more power, just a piece of paper.


Let us not forget Presidents and Prime Ministers are servants of the people, we elect them and pay there salary imo no leader should be put on a pedestal. It is the people who will make it a better world not one individual who stands on a staduim lapping up adoration.
