Who knew all you had to do to win the Nobel Peace Prize was apologize to the rest of the world for the USA being such a horrible nation.

Out reach to Muslims? Reaching out to ones own is nothing new.

Al Gore won it for creating the hoax and lie called global warming.

The Nobel Peace Prize now has zero meaning or credibility.

Will they stop at nothing to advance the Obama myth?This award has lost a great deal of its weight by this silly political move. The little prom king has ravaged this country politically and financially,has polorized us like never before,is failing dismally at home and overseas. I ask now as I did before his election: What have you really done to earn this. The answer now as before:nothing.

I wonder if the head of any nation engaged in two wars has ever won the Peace prize before.

To think that this happened is sick, but to realize why is even more sick. It is comparable to giving the losing team the trophy.
Barack Hussein Obama has done nothing but damage to our country--and around the world. Looking back--awe what the heck...the Nobel Peace Prize lost it's luster years ago! I mean if they could award it to jimmy dumb dumb carter...heck--why not Barack Hussein Obama. Next year michael puke moore gets the prize. Great integrity going on with the Nobel P.P.

What a wonderful honor for our President and our Country!

The world is affirming and validating the vision President Obama has in reaching out to friends and foes to use dialogue and understanding in establishing world peace, instead of the hate and vitriol that has been used with disastrous results in the last eight years.

Today all of America has another reason to be proud of our country!

Good grief... for what? This guy hasn't done ANYthing- and what's he's proposing- "a world without nuclear weapons"- is unfortunately not a goal shared by those most likely to use them.

Along with Obama's lack of support for defensive missile technologies... how is this any different than unilateral disarmament /capitulation to Tehran and Pyongyang?

How the heck did he get an award for things that he hadn't even done by the time the paperwork had to be filed.

What I think is him winning the award just sullies all of the other winners. I'm not saying that he might not deserve one some day. But how if they wait more than 8 months before they give him one of the greatest awards on the planet.

What a sad joke. At best, what he has done might lead to good things. Just like the economy we are hoping he is doing the right things but there is no proof of anything good yet. I guess they need to go back and give a Peace Prize to Chamberlain for his good work in Munich. It led to World War II but his heart was in the right place.

If he goes on a worldwide tour apologizing for the Big Bad USA he can win more trinkets.

They had to do something. They felt sorry for him that he couldn't get the olympics. But, believe me, even Al Gore got it and he cheapened the peace prize. Obama hasn't done anything so he didn't deserve it. It was an act of sympathy.

A radio commentator stated that he had two weeks from his swearing in before this year's nominees deadline. What the heck did he do? 14 days! And he is expanding the war in Afghanistan! And we are still in Iraq! Peace is War! He should decline it for this year. And leave the door open for future years.

The Nobel Peace Prize has obviously become like being th Time Magazine man of the year. If you are in the news the most you get the prize.
