The Growing Campaign to Revoke Obama's Nobel Peace Prize
Posted: 04/04/2013 7:46 pm
This week, a challenge has begun with the launch of a petition urging the Norwegian Nobel Committee to revoke Obama's Peace Prize. By midnight of the first day, nearly 10,000 people had signed. The online petition simply tells the Nobel committee: "I urge you to rescind the Nobel Peace Prize that was awarded to Barack Obama."
Many signers have added their own comments. Here are some samples:
"It is with very great regret that I sign this petition, but I feel it is morally the right thing to do. I had phenomenally high hopes that our President would be a torch bearer for the true message of Peace. Instead he has brought death, destruction and devastation to vast areas of the world, and made us less safe by creating more enemies." -Sushila C., Punta Gorda, FL
"War is nothing to be given a peace prize for." -Brent L., San Diego, CA
"President Obama has clearly demonstrated that he is undeserving of the Nobel Peace Prize. Revoke his prize and give it to Bradley Manning!" -Henry B., Portland, OR

This feel good notion of "petitions" is growing out of hand. That isn't how we govern -- albeit, the petition is towards an entity outside of the United States. Regardless, we have people petitioning the White House to build a "Death Star", "Condemn Affleck from being Batman" and other ridiculous notions that are beyond the scope and power of the branch of Government that is calling for citizen's to petition.
Is it possible to revoke a Nobel Prize?
No, it is not possible according to the statutes of the Nobel Foundation, § 10.
