Nobel Peace Prize

By awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama, Peace Prize Committee has done it again. By awarding this prize to an individual who has done nothing but talk a lot, this group of leftist clowns now leaves no doubt that the Prize is now a joke. As a cartoon in Investors Business Daily illustrated, the Prize should have been given to Obama’s teleprompter. As Rush Limbaugh said: “He’s not only the first post-racial president, he’s also the first post-accomplishment.”

However, in recent years the Committee has gone out of its way to award the prize to individuals who have done nothing to foster world peace.

In 1990 it awarded the Prize to Mikhail Gorbachev for the liberation of Eastern Europe – something he unwillingly did only after being pressured to do so by President Reagan and the revolts in Hungary, Poland, and other countries in the Soviet bloc. In 1994 the award went to Yasser Arafat for his role in “bringing peace to the Middle East.” Thanks to Arafat all of the Middle Eastern countries no longer want Israel eradicated and we now have peace in the Middle East. In 2002 the Committee awarded the prize to Jimmy Carter, the worst President of the U.S. Here is a man who “brought Israel and the PLO together” to achieve peace. Great job Carter. He was instrumental in bringing the Ayatollah Khomeini to power in Iran. Since then Carter has visited and praised Castro, Chavez, and every other socialist or communist dictator he can find. In 2005 the award went to U.N. head weapons inspector Mohamed ElBaradei – an individual who could not find nuclear programs if they were in front of him. Then in 2007 the award went to Al Gore. What Gore has ever done for peace is a mystery to me – although he did claim to invent the Internet.

Sad to say but the award has become a joke.

I did not realize the Nobel Peace Prize had an affirmative action quota. How else can one support this insane choice of Barry Soetero

Unwarranted and unjustified. Obama is nothing more than a Thug.
His only skill is an ablity to accurately read whatever is placed on his telprompter.
Shame on the Nobel Committee for mocking the legacy of this "honor".

What an "Horatio Alger" story - from an ACORN COMMUNITY ORGANIZER to a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Is there anyhthing this guy is not capable of? He's got to be the Messiah. Aren't we lucky!
