Barack Obama Wins The Nobel Peace Prize

By Wyatt Earp | October 9, 2009


Eh, what? The voting ended on February 1st. Obama was inaugurated on January 20th, and the only thing he did as a senator was campaign for president!!! My only question – and it is a serious one – is this: What did he do to deserve this??

So the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded Obama the Peace Prize for 2009. Their reasoning according to the Washington Times is;

…for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee said.

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said. “His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.”

In other words,”Obama is not George Bush”. He hasn’t actually accomplished anything, but he campaigns well. So much for any bit of credibility the prize might have had after awarding it to Yassir Arafat or Al Gore. I guess this is the committee weighing in on troops increases in Afghanistan.

What could make this even more stupid? Nominations for the prize closed in February. Theodore Roosevelt was awarded the prize because he brokered peace between Russia and Japan. Woodrow Wilson was awarded the prize because he established the League of Nations. Barack Obama wins because he had an Inauguration. (H/TThis Ain’t Hell)

This disgusts me because Obama now shares an honor with one of the greatest presidents in American history: Theodore Roosevelt. Of course TR actually earned it, and besides sharing the Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama has nothing in common with that great, principled man.

So, again I ask: What has President Obama done to deserve this honor?

    Why does he deserve it? How did he earn it? Who the hell do you think YOU are?

    He’s Barack Obama… yes, of the “Barack Hussein Obama, Mmm Mmm Mmmm” song. He doesn’t need to earn anything.

    In that spirit I’ve nominated him to win the Heisman Trophy.

    Be sure to vote early and often. Go Barry O! Ra! Ra! Ra!

    If you’re not happy about this, then you are a racist and a terrorist sympathizer.

    But dissent is the purest form of patriotism. Never forget that.

    Al Gore won the Nobel over Irena Sendler. Need I say more?

    Apparently they are now awarded for what you say you are going to do instead of what you actually did. Much like the rest of the Democrat platform.

    My nephew earned a big award at his college. It is the highest award the school gives to a student leader [ he has been involved with the campus Habitat For Humanity group].

    I can’t wait to tell him he did not need to do all that work for the last 3 years. He should have just promised to do the work some day.

    My first reaction when I heard the news of Obama’s (ig)Nobel prize was to laugh out loud.

    I’m still laughing. So is everybody else I’ve talked to at work today about it, even the Democrats.

    This may go down in history as the moment the Obama presidency officially jumped the shark.

    As for the Euroweenies who awarded Obama this pointless prize, we’ll see how much they enjoy their “hopes for a better future” and their “shared values and attitudes” in the coming Islamic Caliphate of Europe.

    “…Attention, please. Would Mr. Mark Steyn and Mr. Tom Kratman please come to the courtesy desk. Would Mr. Mark Steyn…”

    Hell it only took Barry 10 months of doing nothing to get an award it took mother Theresa 50 years of working with Lepers in the slums of Calcutta to get.

    Then again messiah is higher than a nun…

    Woody – I’m voting for him right now!

    RAPH – Well played, sir!

    TexasFred – Oh, sorry. Where is my mind?

    Teetop – Correct.

    Robert – So Hillary Clinton keeps telling me.

    USMC8511 – Yeah, so I’ve heard. *spit*

    Mrs. Crankipants – I remember hearing the stories about her. Gore should have refused the award.

    Ingineer66 – I thought about donating to charity. Can I take the tax deduction.

    AJ – And that would have given him much more free time.

    Wes – When some big time liberal sites – like HuffPo – are incredulous, that says something.

    Captain – It just shows how meaningless this prize has become.
