What the Hell Were They Thinking?

Argh! I cannot freaking believe that the Nobel Prize committee chose Barak Obama to receive this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. I thought you actually had to do something to get the prize. What are they thinking? They think he’s changed the tone of foreign relations?? They should have given the prize to the American people for electing someone who professes an interest in creating peace in the world, not to him for what he might do. Lord knows we could use the money.

It could be that in the future President Obama will achieve great things. He’s off to s slow start, but we can hope, but right now he does not deserve to be in the company of previous winners such as the Dahlia Lama, Martin Luther King, Jimmy Carter, and Al Gore. The Nobel Committee has cheapened their prize in my opinion. I don’t think Obama deserves the prize just for not being George Bush as laudable as that accomplishment is.

I guess the others being considered for this honor couldn't compete with an International Apology Tour. What the rest of the world doesn't understand is all Obama has brought to this country is generational debt, fear, and chaos. We no longer live in a strong nation of freedom, we live in Obamaland. In his short time in office he has managed to weaken our nation. Hopefully things will change after the midterm elections in 2010 and Obama will suddenly be a Lame Duck. Can't happen to a better Nobel Prize winner!

We agree about the prize for very different reasons. I don't mind Obama apologizing for Bush and most importantly for not BEING Bush, but this prize thing is ridiculous since so far he's done NOTHING. If he and the Dems don't get their act together, you're right, he'll be a lame duck. We will have blown our shot.
