That was so funny it made my day!

Regarding Obama's prize: just when you thought the Nobel could not sink any lower, they come out and prove you wrong. What a stinking pile of crap. The guy might still do a lot and prove himself worthy of lots of prizes, but today?

They must have been snorting whale blubber up in Norway when they made this decision.

Or were paid off by FOX News.

Perhaps Norwayans want to prevent any war in next 3-7 years by this decision

Re: U.S. President Barack Obama named 2009 winner of Nobel Peace Prize

The U.S. is pushing for funding to build a "gargantuan bunker-busting bomb called the Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP)" in what could be part of the process of accelerating provisions for a possible attack on Iran.

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Ne...sh.aspx/172153

This bomb will be full of Love, Bunnies, Sweets and Peace, of course!

How could those faces lie

Re: U.S. President Barack Obama named 2009 winner of Nobel Peace Prize

Any respect for the Nobel Prize process has vanished entirely with this win.

Obama is an utter failure as a president - he has taken he U.S. down the socialist path. He has saddled that countr with a huge deficit.

And he's delivered on exactly none of his campaign promises. Guantanamo is still open, Iraq's still a mess, Afghanistan is getting there.

And they are saying it's a prize more for potential in his case than results.

Oh really? If that's the case, then maybe I should win the damn thing, since I have so much potential to change the world!

Re: U.S. President Barack Obama named 2009 winner of Nobel Peace Prize

Lots of controversy about this pick. I would bet that Obama will flip this controversy to his favor. He's done it many times before, and I think he'll do it once again. The dude thrives under political adversity. He's like the Madonna of politics.

He'll have some speech that says something like;

"I humbly accept this award on behalf of the American people, who has given me the privilege to serve them and their vision of a greater future. From those who have struggled to fulfill their dream of providing a bright future for generations to come; from Rosa Parks to Joe the Plumber - It is their great vision, not mine, that is being honored here today. I humbly accept this award and the prize money."

Whatever the merits of this decision at least one should not blame Obama for getting the prize. Blame the Norwegian committee who decided that. However, it is their prize to give anyway.

As for the results, Arafat was also given the prize for "Peace"

Re: U.S. President Barack Obama named 2009 winner of Nobel Peace Prize

Those Obama fanboys in the Norwegian parliament definitely prematurely ejaculated.

Compare to Gandhi never receiving the prize, even though he introduced the notion of non-violent protest to our modern times, which not only effected his movement at the time, but had immense influence on public protest since then.
