Exactly. It's for the year's biggest newsmaker, not the 'nicest' or the 'best.'

That confuses a lot of folks. I'm not surprised by this decision.

For what? What did he do to make him earn this?

Well let's take a look.

Started an undeclared wars in Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Sudan.

Shipped in money, weapons, and fighters through the CIA into Syria.

Lied to the American people saying the Obamacare was not a tax even though the individual mandate on the people in Obamacare was upheld as being a tax.

Shall we keep going?

Oh wait, he is supposed to be a peace prize winner. Even though this administration is using drone attacks in Pakistan to kill children and other innocent people. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Pay no mind to that.

As much as I hate to agree with the "professor", he's right. This isn't about doing good, it's about who made the biggest impact, and, all those things you stated add up to a fairly large impact. A BAD impact, no doubt, but a large one never the less.

You people are severely disabling yourselves with your Obama hatred. For your own good, you should relocate. Iraq, perhaps? You aren't going to get away from President Obama any other way. The majority of Americans love him and made him our leader and you losers can't do anything about it. Your constant whining is doing nothing but convincing everyone else just how sick y'all actually are. You're making total asses out of yourselves and everyone else is being entertained by you ranting and raving sore loser clowns. Carry on though. You are better than anyone else at making total fools of yourselves without any help.

Not "everything," but many things which were stupid, inept, violent, incompetent, and absurd between 2001-2009.

That would be Alfred Nobel, who established the Nobel Prizes with money he made from explosives. Including the Peace Prize, ironically.

Hitler made MAN of year, but never PERSON of year. That all encompassing composite PERSON label eluded Hilter.

It was assumed at that time that MEN were the newsmakers and history-makers. It changed to "Person" in 1999.
