    Seriously!?

    He hasn't done anything yet... I don't hate the guy but truly he has not done anything that warrants the Nobel prize. Give it to the Dalai Llama or someone who has done something. Teddy Roosevelt was awarded his for negotiating peace between the Japanese and Russians. President Wilson was awarded his for the formation of the league of nations. Carter received his for his many years of work for mideast peace. Oh, I guess the Dalai Llama already has one so maybe that explains all this...

    WTF?

    Fri Oct 9, 2009
    OSLO (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for his calls to reduce the world's stockpile of nuclear weapons and working for world peace.

    Ronald Reagan did reduce the world stockpile of nuclear weapons! Obama suggests we reduce the world's stockpile of nuclear weapons and he get's a Nobel prize, talk about Affirmative action! :huh:

    It is now officially the "Nobel Apologize for America Peace Prize".

    Just the "one world order" folks meddling in U.S. affairs again. Now the devotees get to be star-struck all over again.
    I think they are trying to set this guy up to be President-for-life.
    Watch for the amendment that removes the two term limit.
    Hopefully the country will see this as just another parallel with Jimmy the peanut farmer. AKA the worst president in modern history!

    When you look at some of the other "luminaries" who have been awarded this prize, it sort of puts Obie-Wan-Nairobi's win in perspective:

    Jimmy Carter
    Yasser Arafat (no kidding)
    Algore
    Mikhail Gorbachev


    Just remember, the Europeans love a weak America* and they see a kindred spirit when they look at Obama (who has done nothing but try to weaken our country since he was elected.)


    * Except when their bacon is in the fire, and then they expect America to come bail them out with our blood and treasure.

    Alfred Nobel was an armaments manufacturer.
    American bullet manufacturers are working round the clock and are still unable to keep up with demand.
    Obama has "stimulated" the firearms and ammunition industry to new levels....

    hence he deserves a Nobel prize.

    European elitists, American radical leftists, liberals, dictators, communists, and Islamist terrorists all celebrate.

    Saw this on a blog.

    BREAKING NEWS: Obama just won the Emmy for "Best Press Conference." And the Academy just gave him an Oscar for a PowerPoint presentation he's going to make about world peace. And evidently he won a pro bowling contest in Milwaukee, a bass fishing contest in Arkansas, a blue ribbon for the biggest squash at the Iowa State Fair, the jackpot in the Megamillions lotto, and a poetry contest in Sheboygan.

    Our Great Leader Comrade Obama is a supergenius who knows all and tirelessly works for the common good of mankind. This is not rigged at all to promote a political position but rather a celebration of Obama's vast accomplishments, which are still in progress but surely astounding.

    The world looks different to people who live in other countries than our own. Many of them see the USA as the world's Great Gangster, using our military might in enslaving poor workers and supporting their oppressive governments all over the planet. Almost everywhere you look the US Government gives aid to corrupt tyrants to subjugate their people, as long as their countries labor and resources serve the US "national interests" (read: corporate profits), and as long as their military opposes all other interests beyond ours. We even used to give LOTS of military aid to Osama Bin Laden, and to the Taliban to oppose the Soviets, even though it was likely they would enslave all of Afganistan with that aid. Too bad, collateral damage, the cost of doing "business", the legacy of American favor.

    No other American President since Jimmy Carter has done as much to promote world peace as has Barack Obama. It's an ATTITUDE that opens doors and invites discussions. If you talk with many foreigners you will discover that President Carter is still revered around the world as a peacemaker and true supporter of political justice.

    In his inaugural address President Obama asked the world to unclench its fist and receive the open hand of friendship of the United States. He specifically addressed the Muslim world, ALL THE BILLIONS of them, asking them to open up so we can get to know each other and realize we do not NEED to be enemies.

    For this speech alone, even if he accomplishes nothing else, President Barack Obama DESERVES the Nobel Peace Prize.......................elsullo :thumbup:

    Yes, we Americans deserve to be weakened. Our country has been enslaving billions around the world, and now we have a president who is going to ensure that we get ours.

    The hundreds of billions in foreign aid, the disaster relief, the food shipments, the military protection, the investments made in trade and infrastructure so that quality of life could rise around the world were just window dressing.

    America is now, and has always been, run by evil white men with nothing more than conquest, slavery, and plunder on their collective, evil mind. Fundamentalist Moslems are killing Americans, not because their holy book tells them to, not because we won't submit to their god, not because our society refuses to adhere to their 7th-century moral codes, but because we are rich, white, imperialist, jerks! I see it all clearly now!

    If only America were nicer, and approached our enemies with an open hand, we could all join together as one planet and celebrate our similarities, not fight over our differences. Peace and love, brothers! :cool:

    In other news, I've just learned that Michelle Obama has been crowned both Miss and Mrs. Universe for 2009-2012, and deservedly so!!!!

    Is this seriously a statement for him? I think his comparisons to Carter will be his downfall.

    BTW, countries that end up exporting goods to us see increases in their standards of living, health conditions, and human rights.:thumbup:

    Has it been four years yet?
