Possibly the most ludicrous Nobel nomination ever. Shame on the Nobel committee.

“Let me be clear. I do not view it as recognition of my own accomplishments but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations," Obama said, speaking about being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.      He, along with the rest of the world, were surprised, and many not pleasently, this morning when the Norwegian Nobel Committee annouced him as the recpient.      Obama has now joined the ranks of …

   I don't think it's a secret that I'm a conservative but before you write me off as someone who can only find fault in President Obama, let me say that I don't "blame" Obama for this one. He has been very gracious about receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, saying, "I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize." and announced that he will donate all of the prize money to charity.   …

Within ten months of his Presidency, Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for what he has done to bridge the gap between America and other nations.  It came as quite a shock to everyone, including himself.  And thus the Two Sided Politics has started again.  With the left saying this is a great thing for the nation and the right saying it's a horrible thing.  I've already talked once about how the Right isn't going to support anything Obama related.  As has already been …

Get on the Peace Wave!
Yesterday AM  and before the Peace Prize announcement I mentioned to a  friend that I thought Obama was doing a great job. Asked why  replied that the world is so much calmer. We don't get daily Palestine  Israel  bad news, we are disarming, there was a UN vote and Russia France China voted with US, things are better in Middle East and  finally Cuba!  America has a most elegant  and inspiring world leader.       He became President …

For those who think it was premature for President Obama to win the Nobel peace prize, pleas evaluate what you think one man can do. Obama can only bring us to the well of peace, it is up to us to drink/embrace it. He needs your positive support.  He can create the possibility of peace, will you help make it happen?   He is bringing the nations of the world back together that splintered away when Ex-President Bush was in office.  He is bringing back the respect that the United …

The Noble Prize has lost all credibility. The most ridiculous award ever.
review by . October 14, 2009
President Barrack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize award win is a giant step forward in bringing peace to the Middle East and rehabilitating America's image after the debacle of Bush Jr.'s eight years in the Oval Office.  It took a lot of stones for the President to Address the Arab nations and apologize for our country's past digressions in the Middle East.  This award win is also an excellent move in the right direction towards bringing dialog to our so called "axis of enemies", moving …

Obama's hugh ego is being played like a 10 cent kazoo! "The Nobel Peace Prize", indeed. It was an insult...and the boob fell for it.

While I am happy that President Obama won, I feel like it may have been a bit pre-mature. Never the less, Congratulations!
