There is no way that Obama deserves the Nobel peace prize. He is a pure politician. He says what he needs to say in order to achieve exactly what he wants and then does whatever he wants because he knows that the fallout will be covered up by the massive hype surrounding him. This can be directly compared to him claiming that he would not pursue any new gun legislation. Since then he has made every attempt to subvertly dismantle the second ammendment.

Dare I say it? Nobel PEACE prize for a president who continued one war, escalated another, and started another. That doesn't add up.

I agree with Mama Kaz all the way! There is no way this man deserved that prize, any more than he deserved to be President? Just who is he, anyway?! Another puppet put in office by the Bilderbers, in my opinion.

1. He has been trying to promote peace.
2. Barack Obama won this award NOT President Obama. So, the committee didn't start considering him for this award in January on the same day many of you started blaming him for all our problems.

Well, lets see. He spends a lot of time going around the world apologizing for what a terrible country we are. He's sitting back in the oval office procrastinating about whether or not our troops in Afghanistan should get some back up while more young people die every day. He's bribing and strong arming members of congress to vote one way or another. He's giving shout outs to people when he should be extending his deepest and heartfelt sympathies to the families of murdered by a Muslim extremist. He's pushing climate change that is going to be so expensive that most of us will not be able to make the REQUIRED changes in our homes and will face fines or worse when we cannot comply. Our power bills will "necessarily skyrocket" and that comes from Obama's own mouth. He's spending money we don't have and is now pushing a health care reform bill that will force all of us into inferior medical care and cast my grandchildren and great grandchildren into hopeless debt before they are even born. I could go on but I won't. He is throwing us all under the bus to gain favor with the rest of the world. Think about this. Most of the world hates us and would love to see us fail. So, if he's out there trying to make the rest of the world happy, what does that mean for us? Think, think, think....

As I was driving out of town on Friday morning and heard this news, I knew this debate would be on here, before I got home on Sunday night.

I was wrong in one way. I figured the person posting it would title it King Obama, instead he titled it Barack Hussein Obama. Anything he can use as a negative connotation of our president.

It's late and I still have paperwork to do from my trip and from being gone from work for the past three days, so that's all I'll say for now.

Sure he was deserving of it; you know considering the competition. I hope when you have more time you at least have an example of why he's deserving of this prize, other than his good looks and great speaking ability that is.

The question I want answered is who nominated him two weeks into his presidency? That individual needs to be slapped upside their head.

President Obama is trying to ease U.S. conflicts with nations of the Muslim persuasion. Committee members were happy about the change in global mood brought about by President Obama calling for peace and cooperation, and believe in his his pledges to reduce the world's nuclear weapons. President Obama is even strengthening our role in the fight against climate change. These are all great reasons, even though most have not yet been accomplished. Al Gore won for making a video and giving lectures about climate change, so Prsident Obama has done more than some past Nobel winners. I've always felt that the prize was normally awarded to those who make more of an effect on a world wide basis not just in their own country. Many of this years nominees were dedicated and did great work but basically for the population of their country and not for the world. People try to change things and make a difference and MANY do not get it accomplished. that doesn't mean their dedication and attempts are any less appreciated. In simple terms...."It's the thought that counts." I know it's not as simple as that but do remember that. Others have won awards for things they've tried to accomplish, even though they failed.

It takes REAL arrogance to nominate a Nobel Peace Prize candidate two weeks after being inaugurated as the president of the United States.

I love the irony. SNL got it right.
