The Norwegian Nobel Committee on Friday awarded the Nobel Peace Prize 2009 to US President Barak Obama.

-snip

Whereas the other prizes are awarded by specialist committees based in Sweden, the Peace Prize is awarded by a committee appointed by the Norwegian Storting. According to Nobel's will, the Peace Prize is to go to whoever "shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses". The prize includes a medal, a personal diploma, and a large sum of prize money (currently 10 million Swedish crowns).

As past winners have proven, a person really doesn't need to do anything to enhance peace or... well do anything at all to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Its funny but I remember when this award actually had some value and an honor. Now it is just a global popularity contest.

Well, the 3 stooges of the Nobel prize is complete. Carter, Gore, Obama. This award belittles those who actually accomplished something.

Let's see.

Jimmy Carter - one of the main people responsible for the unrest we have in the middle east right now.


Al Gore - a swindler who made a movie about a slide show designed to fool the world into giving him and his buddies money.


Obama - the future Jimmy Carter.



The Nobel Peace Prize is no longer an honor - anyone winning it ought to be ASHAMED - it is a black mark on your record.

Everyone I've seen discussing this on TV seems to agree that the only reason he got it was because he wasn't Bush.

Glad to see BDS is still strong in this world. :D

Just saw the headlines as I turned on my computer and told SR. He thought I was kiddng at frst.

What I needed to start my day---SRs sick with the flu, I'm trying to fight off a full blown case of the flu, the Cards have lost the first 2 games of the playoffs, and it's still raining. What a lousy day. Now need to go into the office for a stupid sales blitz---have to keep calling the same customers every week to achieve the target goal of phone calls. Bah, humbug, Obama receved the stupd Nobel prize and all is not all rght in the world.

Oh the positive side, he should visit the STL area. His nose will be so far up in the air, he'll truly drown in the constant downpours. :D

What a freaking joke.

The European Socialistic Political weenies have made bad joke of the Noble prize .

It was an honor at one time now its a mockery of the originator ,The Nobel Boobs prize .

I would imagine that the European heads of state,especially France and Germany,had a chuckle over their breakfast this morning reading this crap.

Just what has this Idiotic Chicago street hood done to deserve this quasi honor ?Next up,that Blithering Bunghole of Boobitude,Smoking Joseph Robinette Biden Jr, as man of the Year !

Deadline for nomination is February 1 2009.

He was in office for 13 days!!

He was awarded for less than 2 weeks of effort.

I am getting up this morning and hear about this on the radio. I think it's prank - seriously. Mr. Snaps has to break the news to me that this for real. My first thought (rendered in text-speak) is: OMG! STFU!11!

My BFF calls me to confirm that we are now entering the End Days. :eek:

What did he win this for? I don't mean the real reason, I mean the fake excuse reason that the committee must have had to gin up at some point. What was the fake reason?

I think he won it for his world wide apology tour while running his campaign for the presidency.

That is the only thing he has done besides NOT being the Honorable President G.W. Bush.

Does anyone else think that they gave this now-worthless award to Obama as a consolation prize for Obama's Olympics embarrassment?

We are all TERRORIST!! now!!



“The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists - the Taliban and Hamas this morning - in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. “Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize - an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride - unless of course you are the Republican Party.


“The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It’s no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore - it’s an embarrassing label to claim,” Woodhouse said.

So the Nobel Peace Prize is now being given to people because of what they might accomplish. Fantastic.

It won't be long before Barry replaces this guy:

That is RIDICULOUS! He was nominated for moving his stuff into the White House?

He had no accomplishments. That's why a lot of us left. He was an empty suit. So his suit got a Nobel Prize?

Hey! Apparently both Margaret Sanger and Hitler were nominees back in the day so anything is possible!

After all the hoopla, I was still trying to figure out why he won. It seems now like he won for his "vision". No actual accomplishments, no actual plan that succeeded, no actual end result (even if it ended in failure) - he just won on "vision".

All I can say is "Wow". :p

All competitors would be awarded gold medals at the starting line. After all, they are all trying to win.

The Hitler nomination was DOA. According to the Nobel database, "The nomination was withdrawn in a letter of February 1, 1939."
