A line must be drawn in the sand. We cannot persist in calling everything ungood for a politician a “gaffe.”

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2009

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.

Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. 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 world’s population.

For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama’s appeal that “Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.”

Oslo, October 9, 2009

They still have trouble grasping that their supergenius president is actually an idiot.

An amateur clown on the world's stage.

Most liberals have their OWN sense of self-worth and intellectual standing wrapped up in the leaders they support.

This is why we get the “every liberal is a genius and every conservative is a dunce” meme.

Ever notice that liberals take it personally when you point out the ineptness of a democrat politician or policy? That’s because they have themselves wrapped up in that politican or policy and denegrating it is denegrating them.

What if Obama’s NOT a clown. What if all the horrors, overspending, thuggy Homeland Security types, Muslim up-raisings, pictures of Russians ships at the DNC convention - what if it’s all intentional and well thought out?

What if he’s not a clown?

When our Navy is crippled by the ‘mistake’ of having too many ships in too small a pond ... you’ll know. And it’ll be too late.

I don’t think Obama’s stupid - I think we’re stupid.

You're giving too much credit where credit is not due. Sure, on some level they're accomplishing a concerted effort to cripple our country, but when it comes to foreign affairs I'm convinced Obama and his leftists cadre are all a bunch of blithering idiots.
He's too busy playing tiddly winks with Reggie Love in AF1, and every upper echelon member of the Progressive Socialist Democrat party has their own agenda .....sure it's going to sink our nation but it's not because they're really really smart.
If anything it's because they have more help along the way than anything else.

Agreed. Obama's not a clown. He's a pawn.

His puppeteers don't care how clumsy he looks, as long as he completes his task of ending American "colonialism".

Well, if they’re no longer an ally, it’s directly the fault of the Obama administration. Egypt, under Hosni Mubarak, was an ally of America. The administration was involved in his removal. The Muslim Brotherhood (who the administration praised) is now in control. Thus, if they’re not an ally, we have nowhere else to look but to the administration for that result.

BTW, I agree with him to the point that they’re not an ally. But I disagree with the point they’re not an enemy.

Just the latest example of the problems Obama creates for his Administration when speaking his own thoughts.

It happens almost every time.

Maybe he should talked to his Supposed Foreign Policy Expert.

I flat out asked my libinlaw if she believed that the congresspeople are inherently smarter than the rest of us and without hesitation she said yes.

I then asked her if she knew Shiela Jackson Lee, Cynthia McKinney, or Maxine Waters. She claimed she didn’t.

Unfortunately, I think the same applies to minorities. Pointing out that he never was fit for the office is judgement against all of them. They all see themselves in BO and MO.

Some of us have been saying this for years. He's a Cloward-Piven disciple, which explains his domestic policies. And his hatred for the West and Christianity explains his foreign policy. It is imperative he be defeated in November.

I believe that definitely is the case with blacks.
In their minds, any criticism of 0bama, especially about being inept, is an indictment of all blacks as inept.

The funny thing here, IMHO, is that Obama may well have been correct. We don't know what our future relation with a Muslim Brotherhood will be like.

Of course, then the questions arise, why the f**k did Obama contribute to their coming to power by pressuring Murbarak, and why do we send them between $1 and $2 billion a year if we don't know whether they will be allies or not?

why do we (or the press) keep using the word “gaffe” when Obama or Biden tell us what they think?

Egypt is no longer an ally. Obama screwed up our relationship with them. It’s a fact that he has harmed our standing in the world, and not a gaffe to admit it.

The entire Obama presidency makes much more sense if you assume he’s a mediocre intelligence indoctrinated with moronic marxist nonsense.

He’s a C+ student (at best) with no real world experience and no understanding that hd could be wrong. His world view can be characterized by the old canard about surgeons, “often wrong but never in doubt”

"mediocre intelligence"

Oh no, I think Obama is always the smartest guy in the room. That is, if the room in question is a small closet, and the other people in the closet with Obama are Biden, Pelosi, and Reid. The collective intelligence of those four nitwits wouldn't equal a gathering of kindergarten dropouts.
