He has done nothing since being in office that warrants this prize. I'm happy for him, but it makes the Nobel Peace Prize seem less legitimate when they give it to someone for literally achieving nothing. Even if you didn't agree with Gore and Carter, at least they accomplished a few things. Obama getting the award right now makes this prize harder to take seriously. Then again, Yasser Arafat won one too.

I actually agree with you that this is beyond crazy but!... It's not correct that he GOT THE PRIZE in February.

That date was the final date for the submissions of possible candidates, then they have until October to discuss and decide the winner.


Well, then you would have to ask yourself WHY would a man who had been in office only TWO weeks be nominated for any prize? The mere fact he was nominated by Feb 1st is the condemning factor here, especially considering his past.

Wow! This is a surprise! I thought it was a joke at first, too. Of course I'm not as surprised as some of you and mine is a pleasant surprise as opposed to the horror and disbelief that's being expressed here.

As I read the reasons the prize was awarded to him, and because I've been tracking his positive influence in the world, I certainly think he deserved it as much or more than anyone else. It makes complete sense to me. Still, I sure didn't see it coming.

Deflection.

It should keep the disgust level up for any sober person.


you will get to think up more names to call obama

You mean like the left calling Bush43 - chimp? etc etc

[qutoe] much more fear-inducing rhetoric,
Telling the truth about Obama isn't 'fear-inducing rhetoric'.
It's just telling the truth.
And the truth about him and his minions SHOULD make you afraid.


THIS WILL ENERGIZE YOUR BASE!!!!

I have no 'base'. But if it wakes more people up to what is going on with Obama and the world... then great! If the whackos at the Nobel Prize Committee went too far and thus people are energized against them and against Obama .... then they did it to themselves.


ON SUBJECT -
- Obama did nothing to get this award.
- It's based on hype and hope-ium.
- It was awarded by the far left to one of their own.
- It was awarded by foreigners to influence American politics.
- Obama was put in for the award 11 days after taking office and after coming out of nowhere and doing nothing (except hang out with racists and criminals).

He has done nothing... and yet his being accused of implementing communist policies and rushing things?

Accomplished nothing in the peace arena...... you know, the purpose of the prize......

If giving a speech that changed zero policy, taking over banks, car companies, spending $9 trillion on bank stimulus with no effect, an strengthening the Patriot Act all qualifies as Peace accomplishments, then we all stand corrected....

Dang two legit threads.

Anyway, here's my take - The world has truly "jumped the shark".

He is 10 months into a term in which he has completed nothing. For cripe's sake SNL just made fun of him for exactly that!

This only serves to diminish the Nobel Prize and add to it's modern irrelevancy as well as to add to Obama's celebrity cache'. As a supporter I was already concerned over his penchant for style over substance since taking office. This will seal it, getting awards for nothing.

It's like in high school when the prettiest cheerleader gets voted everything from prom queen to most likely to succeed.

Being snarky doesn't change the facts.
11 days in office and he gets nominated.
He had done nothing.
It's to influence American politics.
But it is clear that you are okay with this.
Giving a nobody a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing and having foreigners try to influence American politics.

That's okay with you. We get that. You've been clear.

Well fresh off the stinging disapointment from the Olympic Committee's veto of Obamas homecookin Chicago pleas, he shakes up the world by winning the Nobel Peace prize ! This is like a Hollywood script

What a stunning comeback as Obama was on the ropes with the whole health care / socialist in his administration / and olympic failure

This is especially stunning as the country that Obama leads is currently engaged in 2 wars and maintains rendition / torture centers all over the globe !

..and this was announced the very morning the the NASA bommbs the moon

What drama !!!

I luv the Hegelian Dialectic "problem(Obama's popularity waining) Reaction(US citizens publicly demonstrating against Obama and his policies) Solution( Nobel Peace prize) so now, if you dissent against Obama: you are not only an anti - American racist, but you are against peace itself !!!

Well, considering the europeans dissed Obama so bad over the Olympics, they had to do something to smooze his torched pride. So, a couple of back channel telephone calls, and presto, 1.4 mil, a nice shiny medal, and title of head peacenik for 2009 to boot.

Think he´ll do the right thing and turn it down? I doubt it.

Awesome, so we can win the Nobel Peace Prize for just saying we want to do something? Where's mine? I said we should have peace on the whole world. I even wished for it for Christmas on year! I even had intentions to actually do something about it one of these days... So can I have my award now?

In reality, Obama was *probably* nominated before the Feb 1st cut off, probably even before the inauguration, and maybe even before the election.

That being the case, it is even more amazing that he won, since prior to becoming POTUS, he had done absolutely NOTHING to justify being awarded this prize.

Edit to clarify: Not that he's done anything since becoming POTUS to justify it either.

Then again, it's only 5 people who decide...

Wonder if they had swiss bank accounts through UBS & their names were NOT released

First I read yesterday that he is allowing the taliban to team up with us in the war on terror in Afghanistan/Pakistan because the taliban said they pose no threat to the west. WTF where have I been did I miss something here? I thought the taliban were half the reason we are over there in this mess? Now he is taking down a Nobel Peace Prize, what is this some kind of sick dream, a bad joke, could it be I am in the twilight zone? Someone please cue the music or slap me in the face.
