Greg Gutfeld: Itís All About Him, Not Us (Obama)
Breitbart/Big Hollywood ^

Posted on 10/09/2009 1:16:27 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache

So President Barack Obama said he was surprised that he won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize – making him the only person on earth who was surprised that he won the 2009 Nobel Peace prize.

I’d like to say that I’m really happy for him…. but isn’t that what this is all about? Being happy for “him?”

Wasn’t that what the Olympics were about? Rooting for “him?”

Wasn’t that what the last presidential election was about? Electing “him?”

It’s never about us. Or the U.S. Because if it was, no Nobel committee would have ever given him that prize. The fact is, you only win that prize if a particular transaction is made -that is, a weakening of America in exchange for worldly acceptance by madmen, maniacs and mass murderers.

But that’s not all.

The prize is not meant to award achievement, but to insult folks the committee finds distasteful – meaning those who refuse to share their assumptions about a deeply flawed – oh let’s face it, evil – America.

Meaning, you and me. And like I always say, when it happens three times, it’s officially a trend. The 2002 prize to Jimmy Carter was meant to humiliate President Bush for the Iraq War build-up. They even admitted that. Then in 2007, they handed the political prop to Al Gore – a message meant to slap Bush for winning the 2000 election, and also America for not embracing global warming ideology.

And that’s what this prize is all about now. It’s not just another slap at Bush (well, it is), but a prop to help beat back the simmering dissent Obama’s progressive agenda has caused, here.

There is something very, very, sick about the way the Left smooches Obama’s butt, constantly.

We still don’t know very much about The One. Not even sure where he was born. Don’t know how he got into Columbia and Harvard...what his grades were, nor his test scores.

Like to know where he got his drugs from in New York City. Did he just use them...or did he sell too.

Curious, isn’t it, how uncurious our MSM is?

Who came in second?

Chinese Human Rights Activist Hu Jia - imprisoned for campaigning for human rights in the PRC, not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

Wei Jingsheng, who spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China’s communist system. — not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama. (Not to mention the symbolic value of awarding a Chinese dissident on the 20th Anniversary of the Tianenmen Square Massacre.)

Greg Mortenson, founder of the Central Asia Institute has built nearly 80 schools, especially for girls, in remote areas of northern Pakistan and Afghanistan over the past 15 years - not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, a philosophy professor in Jordan who risks his life by advocating interfaith dialogue between Jews and Muslims, also not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

Afghan human rights activist Sima Samar. She currently leads the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and serves as the U.N. special envoy to Darfur and is apparently also not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

But come on. Not a single one of them has ever been on the cover of People Magazine.

Since the left gave him this win (swelling his head big enough to fit his ears, to paraphrase Limbaugh) they don't have to give the EGØ an winning vote on healthcare next week.

There was an editorial in the London Times, stating that this was the final straw, and it is now time to scrap the Nobel Peace Prize altogether.

I hate to quote Gore Vidal, but as he once said, "... after such a transparent miscarriage of justice, satire was obviously dead.".

Perhaps because none of them were willing to throw Israel under the bus.

“Who came in second?”

I thought I heard the vote was unanimous, which means there was no second.

Yes, obviously they are unanimous idiots....the point was how undeserving Hussein is/was.

Not anymore. Haven't you heard? Obama said it and then CNN said it. It's about the "potential" you have for making a particular transaction. Yeah. So that's why Pope JPII couldn't win because he's dead and so he has no "potential" to achieve anything.

Greg: You’re obviously unpatriotic if you aren’t happy that it’s all about him. Him-worship is the new patriotism.

What I find amusing is that a couple of weeks ago he lectured America’s school children about working hard. Now they know that they can all do nothing, be good bs-ers, and strive for the “most potential” award to receive accolades. Hard work is for those who service the privileged do-nothing class.

If you find out let me know...when coupled with the re-run the night before...I'm really curious too.

No problem ;) Love my Red Eye! Greg has hinted that the first 15 mins of Red Eye tonight will be about this topic and it gets “unreal”.

Rough Klingon sex? I figured Bill looked like that all evening just so it would appear he was the one beaten up by the kickboxing tranny. Was the black eye real?
