Obama wins Nobel

Postby scottaa1 » Fri Oct 09, 2009 6:23 am

Does anyone else find this a little premature? He's been in office for what, 8 months?

(CNN) -- President Barack Obama made history again Friday, winning the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

It would be more fitting to give the award down the road. I find it a little premature and presumptuous to be awarding an individual who shares the same dream of peace many have without any concrete results to point. It's an endorsement for his future actions than a reward for tangible results.

I like the guy and support him, but c'mon, he hasnt done anything to warrant the Peace Prize... I mean when you think about past winners like Elie Wiesel, Nelson Mandela, and the Dalai freaking Lama, its just seems like Obamas coming up a little short for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," which basically translates to, "he's better than Bush."

Actually he was the front runner, but then he stunk it up in the Big Easy and they gave it to Obama.

What's next in Bizarro World? Jamarcus Russell wins the NFL MVP, Clint Eastwood comes out of the closet, and Scarlett Johansson moves in with me? :-S

I mean I like Obama and voted for him, but it's like he's won the award simply for getting elected...a hell of an accomplishment but worthy of the nobel.

Next one is Rush Limbaugh owning an NFL franchise. Is anyone else irritated with this "Outback detergent" ad on FFC board?
