Skip to comments.First, Obama gets a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing; Now, a tae kwan do black belt after 0 kicks

Even President Obama himself during his just-concluded trip to Asia admitted that he was surprised to receive the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this year without actually producing any peace.
In fact, the rookie American president ordered his own troop surge, boosting U.S. troops fighting in Afghanistan to 68,000. Now, the Democrat may be preparing to send more again. And a Gallup Poll showed 61% of Americans didn't think he deserved it either.
Anyway, there he was in Seoul, South Korea on the last stop of his journey.
And out of the Seoul sky, President Lee Myung-bak hands over to the American leader a tae kwan do outfit. And then Lee, who practices tae kwan do himself, presents Obama with a coveted black belt.
After 0 long years of study.
What would Chuck Norris do? Probably bow. But never as low as Obama bowed for Japan's Emperor last weekend in Tokyo.

They gave him a black belt? I’m more PO’d about that than the Nobel!
It makes mine worth less, indeed.
I’m done bowing;I’ll kick your a55!
Affirmative action in all it’s glory.
Why’d it have to be a BLACK belt? Huh? THAT’S RACIST!
Still no Heisman trophy ... at least not yet.
You just broke your 4th metacarpal and/or sprained your wrist.
Of course, this assumes you have enough power to actually break a bone in your hand.
This jackass is an embarrassment to himself, but he’s so in love with himself that he can’t tell when he should be ashamed.
His life is just one big gimmie
He looks like he’s singing Kung Fu Fighting at Kareoke.
This is pure BS. The pathetic thing is that "Ears" probably thinks this means something!
After 25+ years in the combat/martial arts, I wouldn’t mind stepping into the ring with this “black belt.”
This is pretty fun though.
We now have at least two obvious cases of 0bama getting some award or achievement for no effort or merit on his part.
It puts people in the mindset of “what else has he gained that he didn’t earn?”
You don’t turn the Queen Mary of public opinion on a dime, and little nudges like this actually HELP.
I wonder when he is going to award himself the Medal of Honor??
At least the bastid will NEVER have a certificate registered at Kukiwon.
Is that a grown-up Steve Urkel on the left?
Is Barry left handed ???
