Mockery of Nobel Peace Prize

Comment: absurd decision on Obama
makes a mockery of the Nobel peace prize

From Times Online
October 9, 2009

The award of this year’s Nobel peace prize to President Obama will be met with widespread incredulity, consternation in many capitals and probably deep embarrassment by the President himself.

Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration, approval for the election of America’s first black president and hope that Washington will honour its promise to re-engage with the world.

Instead, the prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronising in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace.

    It should have gone to the Dalai Lama that “Chicken-Crap” Obama snubbed…

    Why would the Dalai Lama get the award…what has he done to procure world peace?? President Barack Hussein Obama has, in his short time as Pres., established diplomatic talks with Iran, is winding down bush’s war in Iraq, signed an arms reduction treaty with Russia, put Israel on notice that they must give up settlements for a lasting peace treaty, established relations with Venezuela and lead the world at the UN where he spoke of peace!!
    More that any neo-con has ever done to work towards world peace.

    …all the while Iran is weaponizing their nuclear capabilities; Israel and the Palestinians are further apart than ever-with Israel simultaneously strategizing her attack on Iran to save themselves from Obama’s “diplomacy”; China and Russia are duping Obie and Europe into thinking they’re our “friends” in order to gain control of the worlds oil , the mideast is on the verge of boiling over due to terrorist assaults (just ask the scores of Pakistani’s dying this week) and finally he succeeded in assuring North korea and venezuela that they will have no problems with him as they spread their influence in their spheres (just ask South Korea Japan, Poland and Colombia).

    All the Dalai Lama did was stand up to brutal China to defend his peaceloving people who are still being systematically slaughtered.

    Yep, feels like peacetime to me….

    Give this GENIUS time…he cannot fix everything in one short year. Don’t worry he will get to all of the other problems that you neo-cons created after he fixes some of our domestic problems. Health care, social security, medicare, economy and job creation. After he is done You just may admit y’all were wrong and join us to re-elect him in 2012.

  5. CountDown Says:

    Genius? Did he also get the Nobel Prize in Medical Research or Astrophysics? Maybe, they can give those out as incentives too….maybe to high schoolers who got a B in chemistry?

    Aftr he’s done, we won’t have anything left to us to re-elect him to do here.

    Ironic that 2012 is the prophecied year of Armageddon-

    Let’s hope this GENIUS looks to the RED STATES that have self-sustaining economies, high standard of living and low crime for his domestic policies, and not the BLUE STATES, such as California, Michigan, New York and New Jesey, to mention a few, where the “community” is rioting on Government handout lines wating for their Obie-Bucks.

    Let’s hope this GENIUS looks to successful nation states, with strong national defense, low unemployment, low crime (associated with regulated immigration) and strong economies, such as the small Arab principalities, Democratic (not Socialist) Scandinavian countries and the only country in Europe worth emulating- Ireland and not to his Socialist friends in France, GB, Spain, Venezuela, North Korea, Germany, Cuba and Kenya.

    This GENIUS needs to repair this nations credit rating by increasing the value of the US dollar worldwide if we’re to continue to have any wealth to redistribute to his friends who refuse to work for their own bling and booty.
