The prestige of earning the Nobel Peace Prize has been stained by the latest winner who did nothing to earn it.

Corndaddy,
your ignorance must be quite blissful. For an American president to win the award and you to say its "diminished" is truly un-American. You must hate America, guess what its not all old white men making war anymore get used to it. Looks like the rest of the world has!
Righties have proven beyond a doubt that they HATE America, thanks.

As Corn Daddy said, The prestige of earning the Nobel Peace Prize has been stained by the latest winner who did nothing to earn it.

So why don't you Awesome, tell us just what he did to earn it, take over GM, the Insurance Co. Fannie May and Fannie Mack, let China buy Hummer, attempting to ruin Media Care and Senior Advantage and more.

So do tell CornDaddy and the rest of us JUST WHAT DID HE DO?

Remember he even admitted on national TV he did not deserve it.

Oh wait I know what he did, he refused to refuse it and the money that goes with it, that's what he did.

RIGHT ?

Obama's failures, liberal political grandstanding, and apologies on behalf of America to our enemies is going to prepare the way for another Reagan, just like Jimmy Carter did. Obama will be a one-term president, followed by a two term Republican who will usher in a period of prosperity. Will it be Romney? Will it be Palin? We'll see.
Now that will be "Hope and Change" I can beleive in!!

President Obama just got done pulling US missle defense out of Poland and the Czech republic. That made Russia happy enough to get them to slap down Iran in the UN Security Council. Anybody notice that story last week? When Obama schooled the G20, with Brown and Sarkozy flanking him, about Iran's super secret unreported facility?
Iran now has to ship all their enriched Uranium overseas to comply with UN directives.
Obama has been active in nonproliferation for many years. Guess somebody was paying attention.
Hey stupid; everything you mention here was done AFTER he was nominated for the prize...tell me; what did he do before February 1st of this year that warranted the peace prize because that's when nominations were turned in?

You guys just don't get it. Quit hating America, how unamerican.

BTW, All he had to do was the opposite of Bush, do that and the world loves us. So all he needed was 2 weeks, that was two weeks of not having a President named Bush and the world threw us the prize as a thank you, Great Big THANK YOU for not electing McCain to Bush's third term!

Hmmmmm I have a dream, a dream where man can make every promise in the world and never deliver. A dream where men can talk about their dreams and win awards for them.... This is a crock people, the guy has done zip, nada, nill, ZERO!!!! and you still think he walks on water.....The guy is arrogant and has more people fooled than Tammy Faye and Jim Baker did. The fact that he leans every which way but American should be a clue!

He is going to be a 4 year President. The Olympic committee saw past his lies about what a great honor it would be to have the Games in Chicago. They knew his friends owned the property where the Olympic compound was slated to be built. He tried to turn his friends into millionaires. So much for a President who looks out for the working man. And his health care plan is a scam too. His wife was a hospital administrator who came up with the plan to send uninsured low income patients to other hospitals so they would not have to spend money to treat them. Wake up you fools, the guy has no business running our country. He should be the leader of a cult, not our country!

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to the US. He's a breath of fresh air after 8 years of a president who could speak in simple sentences and was a liar to boot. Congratulations to President Obama and the US citizens who voted for him.

Some of you sound like uneducated people. I didn't know so many of you lived in NM. How can you not like Obama after 8 years of a dimwit for president. It's enough to make a person cry. It took Bush 8 years to bring this country to its knees and you condemn Obama after 9 months.

Despite the fact that Obama deserves the prize just for not being a Pube-Likkin, realistically, if he can get the US to just think about end of life care, he should get another one. Seriously, if the system is not changed, it will cost MORE than what he proposes over the next ten years, and we'll still have millions that are without care. Deal.

What has B.O. done?????????? He reads well, WOW, lets give him a prize. George Bush kept us safe for 7 years after the attacks that Clinton ignored. Just because the liberal media bashed on every word out of his mouth and insulted him, he still held the presidency with dignity and grace. Every time B.O. talks without a teleprompter his communist, sociaist, ideas spring out and the media just whitewashe them. Never once did President Bush blame the Clintons on the attacks, because he held the position of presidency higher than the person. Lets see if B.O. does the same, he hasn't so far. B.O. stinks nomatter where its from.

I would have been mad if Bush got that award. The Nobel Peace Prize?? Come on.. It's like getting the prom queen award. All you have to do is be a **** and kiss ****. Obama is really trying though. He did write that really nice letter to Iran wanting to be their friends. How did they respond?? "Death to America" Screw the Nobel Peace Prize. I say Nuke em all. Oh yeah, I may be a right winger, but I still support Obama. I work for the government. If he doesn't want to nuke them, then I guess I'm o.k. with that. I will support that. But, it is getting harder to support your leader when he gets rid of performance based pay for the government. Now, all I have to do is show up to work, do nothing, and I am guaranteed to get the same pay and raise as the poor dude who sits next to me working his **** off. Democrats are great, promoting mediocrity and all. Vote Democrat. It's easier than working.
You - and most of these posters included - just don't get it, do you? Yeah, the guy who works is buttocks off gets the same money as a slacker like you however, the hard worker can be proud of what he's done. Where does that leave a slacker like you? If you can't see that you could be raising production/profits/quality/etc by also working hard, then you'll always be the jercough who sits n' beeches and then beeches some more 'cuz nothing is any better with 'the new guy'.

IMHO, Obama deserves this award (and it's not feeble in the least) for, if nothing else, having the balls to take the Bush/Cheney mess and try to re-make a country out of it. Obama has already won back tons of support for the US on a global scale. That alone is enough to earn the award.
I'm just sayin'

You've been listening to Beck and his chubby cohort a bit too much. Obama has been in office for 9 months. Bush didn't keep us safe. He lied to get us into a war that has been an utter disaster. People throughout the world despised him. That did not keeping us safe. Cowboy mentality is not the way to keep Americans safe. Diplomacy is. We are just one country and apparently there are a lot of dimwits in it from what I'm reading.
