Posted on 10/09/2009 3:06:55 AM PDT by Scanian
OSLO President Barack Obama on Friday won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said.
Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the worlds attention and given its people hope for a better future, the committee said. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the worlds population.
Obamas name had been mentioned in speculation before the award but many Nobel watchers believed it was too early to award the president.

He was nominated after having only been in office for two weeks! Double barf!
Is Obama Jesus?
Someone on another thread said the deadline for nominees for the prize had to be submitted by Feb 1st ... 2 weeks after he took office!
Everybody knows just how manipulable a narcissist is. This plays to Obama’s ego and empty desk presidency.
Nominated after two weeks as president.
Just when you thought Nobel credibility was long gone when they picked the Goron over Irena Sendler. The pick Mr “Shut up, I won” for strengthening diplomacy.
First time I ever got to laugh out loud to start the day.
It really is hilarious, isnt it.
But he’s in good company with Arafat, Carter, and assorted other America haters.
I’m glad this is a non-partisan award that is decided on merit.
JUst what did he do to get the prize?????????????????
Scum Bag Delays Generals Request For More Troops Awaiting Nobel Peace Prize Annoucement....... Guess thats not a headline we’ll see tomorrow!!!
Good thing they don’t give a Nobel for economics, he would have won that too.
The worst thing about this is where hell can you move to.
You just can’t make this **** up.
Hey! If they think obama’s so great, they’re more then welcome to take his sorry butt off our backs.
Any bets on how fast congress gets around to introducing a resolution recognizing the president’s great acheivement?
I’m betting we’ll here about it before noon.
This is a pre-emptive award in recognition of his pre-emptive surrender in Afghanistan and elsewhere. I think I'll move to France.
I think it is also intended to immunize the bastard against removal from office.
There is. Paul Krugman recently won one.
Did they do resolutions for Gore and Carter?
If not they should do one for all three of them—the 3 Appeasement Stooges.
I laughed just as well but when I thought about it a little, there isn’t much to laugh about. His minions will now use this as a means to quash dissent in the US and abroad(Israel anyone?):”How dare you question the Nobel Peace Prize winner? Warmonger! Racist!”
The Niobel Peace Prize committee jumped the shark years ago.
Posted this on another thread, fits here too:
What a crock of you know what. First it is a consolation prize for having lost the Olympics. Second, it is the usual leftist, socialist baloney of rewarding one of their own, just like they did with Jimmy Carter, who never deserved the prize either.
Then there are the ulterior motives. Now that Obama has been awarded the peace prize, he can do nothing else other than keep the peace. This is the Nobel Prize Committees way of preventing Obama from bombing Iran, as he must be peaceful now, dont you know, to live up to his new prize.
He wont be able to put too many more troops in Afghanistan, as that is warlike, and wont fit his new peace image. He must now pursue another series of endless, useless talks with N. Korea, that will go nowhere, as N. Korea once again is cranking up its nuclear program in order to elicit more perks in the form of bribes from the western countries to buy off peace.
Of course, this is also one more repudiation of George Bush. The talking heads on TV are already pursuing the line of how hated we were internationally for the last 8 years (note they say the last 8 years, so naturally it was during Bushs reign). Now that Obama is in office, all is well with the world, and peace will reign.
Of course, the fact that Obama has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to deserve this award is totally immaterial to the subject at hand. What a farce, what a joke. What next, giving the award to Ahmadinejad or Hugo Chavez, or Castro? Gag me with a spoon.
By the way, Israel is now screwed. Obama, in order to live up to his new peace prize will try harder than ever to force a settlement down the throat of Israel with the Muslim fascist Palis. I hope Bibi Netanyahu has fortified himself with Wheaties to be strong enough to ward off what will now be coming his way.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee is chock full of anti-semites, as is so much of Europe, and what better way to get Obama to throw Israel under the bus than by giving him an undeserved prize that he will now feel he has to live up to. And one of the more immediate ways he can do this is by sicking his anti-semitic Administration on Israel. Oh, but hell use his strong arm tactics against Israel peacefully, dontcha know. Hes got his new image to live up to. King of Peace. Which will end up getting us into war in short order.
Don’t think that Obama isn’t sucking up to these international leftist morons to try to land himself some sort of “President of the World” position someday.
Appeasers and gutless wonders like Zippy are favorites of the effete diplomat crowd.
The Onion couldn’t have done it better.
Considering he was nominated just two weeks after he became president, it is laughable.
The joke is on the world which is poking him in the eye just about every day.
More crime in Chicago, more terror violence everywhere.
He backed the despot in Honduras, Venezuela.....everywhere.
The public will see through this, especially after he has jack squat to show as his accomplishments.
Yeah, I should have put in a barf alert. Big mistake.
Among the simple-minded, he might be the Holy Tinity all by himself.
(Lord, please forgive that blasphemous thought!)
Which means a steady diet of appeasement in foreign policy.
Fox mentioned that Zippy had only been in office TWO WEEKS when he was nominated for that hollow award.
Nobel has become so politicized that some of their actions sound like an Onion parody.
The Nobel crowd couldn’t provoke more laughter if they asked the staff of the Onion to make their selections.
Next month, the headline will be that the president is burdened by this award because of the expectations now put on him that he can’t live up to.
s/o, I’m sure!
He can still fool some of the people all of the time.
No, but anybody who follows the news is thinking that!
My first thought was that it was satire. But as the old saying go’s...Truth is stranger than fiction.
The libtards have pretty much made a clean sweep of things, haven’t they?
Maybe there is a Pacific Island somewhere that conservatives could settle and develop.
We’d be the object of world hatred in no time, as we’d probably turn the place into another Singapore inside of a decade.
Slick must be steamed.
What ... the ...
OK, something is very wrong far beyond our wildest imaginings.
I am very surprised that he beat his fellow racist, Al Charleton!
any word on WHO nominated him?
This is a joke, right? Please tell me this is a joke...
Among the effete wine and cheese set, you bet!
Well, give him an Oscar and Pulitzer, too. Really stupid white people won’t have any problem coming up with a reason.
Nominated after two weeks as president”
Hell, he hadn’t even had a chance to sell out to Pooty-Poot yet! Or bow down to Abdullah!
That stuff must have given those Nobel punks that Chrissy Matthews tingle for sure!
The Peace Prize judges lost their minds!
One thing I know—it was NOT anybody named Clinton!
Did he get the “messiah” version with the secret decoder ring and candy surprise with it? I guess he is going to get all kinds of awards now. But they will all be meaningless.
