It has always been Obama's economy.

His starting point is losing 750,000 jobs a month, an economy shrinking at a rate over 6%, the existence of the worse recession in 80 years, two quagmire wars & a trillion dollar deficit.

Bush started with a surplus on the path to paying off the debt. WTF happened?

The real reason, of course, was no mystery: European liberals just can't tell us enough times how dumb they think we were for sending Bush to the White House.(Twice!) Nor is this the first anti-Bush, anti-Republican Party Nobel. By my count, it's the fourth. The first was Jimmy Carter, who did not win, as he should have, for a lifetime of working for Habitat for Humanity or for spending his retirement traveling to the least desirable tourist destinations on the globe to monitor elections.
No, they gave it to Carter, by their own admission, because of his consistently churlish, partisan and un-presidential sniping at Bush over the looming U.S. invasion of Iraq: "It should be interpreted," a Norwegian functionary named Gunnar Berge said of Carter's prize, "as a kick in the leg." Bush's leg, that is.
Okay, but the Oslo orgy was just getting going. In 2007, Al Gore shared a peace prize for his work on global warming. That issue is hardly about the promotion of "fraternity between nations" or "the reduction of standing armies" (the stated Nobel criteria), but they couldn't resist: Here was yet another area in which the elites in the "world community" found Bush wanting. After all, wasn't Gore the guy Bush stole the election from?
A year later, Paul Krugman won a Nobel Prize in economics, supposedly for his work on showing that the tide of global trade really was lifting all boats, yachts and dugout canoes. But was there still a serious debate about that in 2008?(Oh, yes, but only in the Democratic Party, where Obama ran as a protectionist against free-traders like Hillary Clinton.) Ironic, but irrelevant,'cause Krugman's real claim to fame was the relentlessly anti-Bush invective he dispensed weekly during the Bush era in his New York Times column. Oslo loves that, by its own admission.

The Nobel Peace Prize 2002

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2002 to Jimmy Carter, for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development.

During his presidency (1977-1981), Carter's mediation was a vital contribution to the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt, in itself a great enough achievement to qualify for the Nobel Peace Prize. At a time when the cold war between East and West was still predominant, he placed renewed emphasis on the place of human rights in international politics.

Through his Carter Center, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2002, Carter has since his presidency undertaken very extensive and persevering conflict resolution on several continents. He has shown outstanding commitment to human rights, and has served as an observer at countless elections all over the world. He has worked hard on many fronts to fight tropical diseases and to bring about growth and progress in developing countries. Carter has thus been active in several of the problem areas that have figured prominently in the over one hundred years of Peace Prize history.

In a situation currently marked by threats of the use of power, Carter has stood by the principles that conflicts must as far as possible be resolved through mediation and international co-operation based on international law, respect for human rights, and economic development.

(hm let's see...according to yer arteecull--lemme guess...they skipped over the Reagan years that followed the Carter years, PRIOR to the Bush SR years (when Saddam invaded Kuwait) and totally dumped it into Clintons lap as a quest just so they woldn't have to say Carter actually EARNED it, correct? lol.)
