LONDON The surprise choice of President Barack Obama for the Nobel Peace Prize drew praise from much of the world Friday even as many pointed out the youthful leader has not yet accomplished much on the world stage.
(Excerpt) Read more at google.com ...
Was on Fox&Friends where Geraldo praised Obama for the award in his uniting more moderate Muslems and making it more difficult for Al Qaeda. I have read that the Taliban have become embarrassed by Al Qaeda even though they themselves are far from being "humanitarian". Tribal power thing.
Zero was picked because he was the perfect empty vessel into which to pour the hopes of the anti-American Liberalazi.
By the same self-loathing wealthy Eurotrash who selected Arafat and Jimmuh Carter, and picked AlGore because he was not George Bush.
They don’t really elevate those who are selected. All they do is to devalue any meaning of the words “peace prize”.
And Irena Sendler who saved about 500 Jewish children from the Nazis was denied. Two years ago they gave it to algore for his slide show on the global warming hoax over Ms. Sendler. Remember when they gave it to carter and he accepted it even after it became clear that they were giving it to him only to spite George W. Bush. They have embarrassed themselves beyond repair.
I’m not sure the committee (nor Obama) are capable of being embarassed.
The Ignoble Piss Nonprize.
No one is going to accuse that committee or uhbama of caring even one iota about those who suffer under tyranny, torture and horrific abuse from their leaders. Nope. Peace is the answer. And if ya happen to have been born into a country that suffers from an abusive dictator, tough luck, because world peace is all that matters.
It seems to me that a whole BUNCH of Miss America contestents have been left out of the Nobel Peace Prize competition...I mean...since it no longer MATTERS if the contestant has actually accomplished ANYTHING, that one only has to pronounce the desire for WORLD PEACE and the END of NUCLEAR WEAPONS in order to win, it just isn't fair.
If Al Gore can have one, why not Obama? Geez, those prizes sure are trivial these days. It reminds me of the trophies they give to the child soccer teams ... everybody gets one, win or lose.
Perfect...that’s why you are the Laz.
triumph? This is satire, right?
They chose him because he has done more than anyone else to destroy the economy of the US and promoted peace on the Mooselimbs.
He will be getting the oscar, grammy, pulitzer and emmy as soon as they can. Hell, he got the biggest prize, the presidency by doing nothing so why not all the rest of them. Bunch of phonys rewarding another phony.
It was the same criteria that any leftist will use to evaluate someone’s “brilliance” -
do they have a Marxist worldview?
Yes - brilliant
No - stupid
Simple as that. No accomplishments need be examined.
I would have preferred that they awarded it to an American.
Oh well. Congrats to Kenya.
I have to cut the Nobel committee some slack on this one. They clearly didn’t want to have to deal with Kanye West....
Those awards will go to his teleprompter!
I wonder how many times Mr. Nobel has turned over in his grave? Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Kofi Annan, Yasser Arafat....etc.
This peace prize has been rendered idiotically political and meaningless.
Right after he shoots his next score of 18 at the local country club.
Who is like unto The One? Who can make war with him?
Will this Twilight Zone episode ever end?
