    President Obama Nobel Peace Prize

    President Obama wins the 2009 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. It all started when the world heard this good man's message of change.

    Today ALL Americans should be very proud of their President Barack Obama.

    Re: Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

    You guys are kidding right?

    I'm not anti Obama, but I have to ask myself; what did he do to earn this award? Not only has he done nothing significant to improve the potential for world peace, but he was nominated only 12 days into his term. So, he was nominated on his potential?

    On the issue of the money, I believe that the $1M prize should go right into the Federal coffer since he is a public servant and he won the award while working for the citizens of the United States.

    Re: Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

    Gee...that is just soooo predictable...the standard for the 'Noble Peace Prize' is WHAT??? Do you know, do you care or only when they have given it to someone that you 'THINK' hasn't earned it...hmmm:confused:

    Seems as though a 'few' on here live in such a tightly protective BUBBLE that they don't get the significance of our newly elected President and the impact that his being black had upon the WORLD view of us as Americans...who for decades seem to preach but not practise our; "We are a UNITED STATES and we fought that CIVIL WAR for the freedoms that we believe in"...but the WORLD gets it and in their eyes and their POV it mattered a great deal!!!
    We made great strides in this past election and in that alone we have shined up our image globally.

    Isn't it a real shame that they didn't phone you and ask what 'VALUES' you thought ought to be the primary reason that the 'Noble Peace Prize' should be awarded;)

    Re: Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

    I thought this was a joke page but apparently not.

    he got a prize for giving hope? Really?

    WOW!

    The shock ended when I read further down, then it was all clear.

    "obama is the third senior U.S. Democrat to win the prize this decade after former Vice President AlGore won in 2007 along with the U.N. climate panel and jimmy carter in 2002".


    Yes, obama is in good company with AlGore the global warming nut who uses more electricity for his home than normal people use in a year and flys around in his private jets while telling you to conserve and jimmy "the Jew hater" cater


    after reading the whole clip, I agree

    Congradulations obama!

    I am proud that they put him in the same group with AlGore and Jimmy the Jew hater.
    It is very fitting and he is very very very very deserving of this honor!

    Oh great. More unwarrnated accolades for Obama.
    Why dont' you call Garafalo, Olberman, and Michael More and have a pizza party in his honor.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125509603349176083.html

    Even in Norway, where Mr. Obama enjoys huge popularity, the decision raised eyebrows among some. "It is just too soon," said Siv Jensen, leader of Norway's main opposition party, the Progress Party. "It is wrong to give him the peace prize for his ambition. You should receive it for results."

    She said that the decision to bestow the award on the president was the most controversial she could remember and was one of a number that had moved the prize further away from the ideals of Alfred Nobel.
