Makes my blood boil...
The Nobel committee rejects criticism because they are shameless.
Past winners had seemed to get their prizes based on them making a political statement.
But in 2009, when we learned that Obama was nominated by Feb. 1, 2009, for the prize awarded in October, that was a smoking gun which exposes what a scam this is.
On Feb. 1, 2009, after Obama had been president for exacly 11 days, the Nobel committee decided that he was deserving of the prize, and accepted his nomination for the prize. Then, he won when they did the actual voting.
I remember it was a funny day here on Free Republic when Obama won the prize. Numerous vanity posts about Obama winning the Indy 500 and such flooded this site, to make fun of Obama winnning the Nobel prize.
Even the White House staff that day, when they first learned the news that Obama had won, questioned if it was some sort of joke. Pres. had no idea he was going to win it.
