Peace Prize? Obama Hasn't Done Anything Yet!

Well...except for Obama's complicity in bankrupting and ruining America! The combination of Marxism, thuggery, propaganda, hating America, hating Israel, pro-terrorist actions, anti-military actions, unbelievable corruption, unconstitutional actions (like the czars and hiding his COLB) etc. The list goes on and on!!! All of these and much more can be considered the dangerous and terribly negative achievements that appeals to the leftist crazies that awarded the "prize."

Obama joins some like company - the worst president ever - Jimmy Carter, global warming goon Al Gore, former terrorist Yasser Arafat, two of Glenn Beck's least favorite leftie presidents - Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt.

Heck - even the SNL comedy cast did a skit last week mocking the fact that Obama hasn't achieved anything on his campaign "to do" list!

Allow me to share where I was and what I was doing when I found out. I was driving to the vet to drop off the puppy that my daughter and her boyfriend recently adopted. He is old enough now to be neutered. I was listening to Fox News on XM radio in my car, and Chris Wallace was discussing that Obama "won" the prize. I could not believe what I was hearing! I immediately called my husband and he said he heard about it too. Amazing! But not in a good way.

After taking the dog into the vet, I turned on Rick Roberts radio show on KFMB. He was saying, "Follow the money. I guarantee you that if you follow the money you will see a payoff for Obama to receive this."

My next thought was it must be either George Soros or the Saudis who influenced this. Next, I wondered why. That is when it came to me. This must be a backhanded way to pressure Obama to not send additional troops to Afghanistan! Perhaps it is to even pressure him so far as to pull the troops out altogether! Think about it - Obama needs to hold up to the "peace" prize title, right?

Apparently, the people who selected Obama wanted to push "approval of his global agenda." No surprise in that statement!

Glenn Beck is having a field day mocking Obama's sorely obvious lack of achievements by spoofing various "announcements of Beck's latest achievements." For instance, he was "awarded" (note: not EARNED) valedictorian for the future 2010 Cambridge and Harvard graduations - based on what he will do over the next year. Heh heh....

There is probably much more, but those where my first thoughts and reactions to what I have heard so far.

What were yours?

Also, do you think that Obama should have turned it down due to the fact that he was nominated two weeks after taking office?

Glenn Beck just mentioned that this particular awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize reveals what a sham it all is. We used to believe that it was real - but this is an understanding that these progressives are highly powerful, very rich, obviously ideologically skewed, and very well connected.

Now I am going to read the blog posts in my sidebar. I will link the best ones to this post.

Big Government: Obama and the Nobel - Right Man, Wrong Prize


1. It is blatantly absurd to award the Nobel Peace Prize to a nine-month president with absolutely no foreign policy achievement of note. Especially when there are so many other fields where the Academy could justify lavishing glory, (and money–one wonders what POTUS will do with the cash?) on their secular savior.

2. In a few short months, Professor Obama has achieved what many economists spend a life time trying. He has provided concrete evidence to support an economic theory. Fortunately for the future of the republic and the solvency of generations to come, the theory he has helped prove is that Keynes’ theory is garbage. Government cannot borrow and spend its way to prosperity. Obama’s experiment shows that government is an inefficient agent for redistribution of resources. Its efforts are subject to political whims, its actions are slow and entail unforeseen costs and consequences that diminish, rather than increase positive economic activity.

Found the transcript of Obama's acceptance speech. Note this portion:

I am the commander in chief of a country that's responsible for ending a war and working in another theater to confront a ruthless adversary that directly threatens the American people and our allies.

What exactly does that mean???

"ENDING" a war - not WINNING THE WAR???


Full-text transcript of Obama's Nobel Peace prize reaction:

Good morning.

Well, this is not how I expected to wake up this morning.

After I received the news, Malia walked in and said, "Daddy, you won the Nobel Peace Prize, and it is Bo's birthday."

And then Sasha added, "Plus, we have a three-day weekend coming up."

So it's -- it's good to have kids to keep things in perspective.

I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the Nobel Committee.

Let me be clear, I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.

To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who've been honored by this prize, men and women who've inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.

But I also know that this prize reflects the kind of world that those men and women and all Americans want to build, a world that gives life to the promise of our founding documents.

And I know that throughout history the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it's also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.

And that is why I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century.

Now, these challenges can't be met by any one leader or any one nation. And that's why my administration's worked to establish a new era of engagement in which all nations must take responsibility for the world we seek.

We cannot tolerate a world in which nuclear weapons spread to more nations and in which the terror of a nuclear holocaust endangers more people.

And that's why we've begun to take concrete steps to pursue a world without nuclear weapons: because all nations have the right to pursue peaceful nuclear power, but all nations have the responsibility to demonstrate their peaceful intentions.

We cannot accept the growing threat posed by climate change, which could forever damage the world that we pass on to our children, sowing conflict and famine, destroying coastlines and emptying cities.

And that's why all nations must now accept their share of responsibility for transforming the way that we use energy.

We can't allow the differences between peoples to define the way that we see one another. And that's why we must pursue a new beginning among people of different faiths and races and religions, one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect.

(con't next post)

Obama speech continued:

And we must all do our part to resolve those conflicts that have caused so much pain and hardship over so many years. And that effort must include an unwavering commitment to finally realize that -- the rights of all Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and security in nations of their own.

We can't accept a world in which more people are denied opportunity and dignity that all people yearn for: the ability to get an education and make a decent living, the security that you won't have to live in fear of disease or violence without hope for the future.

And even as we strive to seek a world in which conflicts are resolved peacefully and prosperity is widely shared, we have to confront the world as we know it today.

I am the commander in chief of a country that's responsible for ending a war and working in another theater to confront a ruthless adversary that directly threatens the American people and our allies. I'm also aware that we are dealing with the impact of a global economic crisis that has left millions of Americans looking for work.

These are concerns that I confront every day on behalf of the American people.

Some of the work confronting us will not be completed during my presidency. Some, like the elimination of nuclear weapons, may not be completed in my lifetime.

But I know these challenges can be met, so long as it's recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.

This award is not simply about the efforts of my administration; it's about the courageous efforts of people around the world.

And that's why this award must be shared with everyone who strives for justice and dignity; for the young woman who marches silently in the streets on behalf of her right to be heard, even in the face of beatings and bullets; for the leader imprisoned in her own home because she refuses to abandon her commitment to democracy; for the soldier who sacrificed through tour after tour of duty on behalf of someone half a world away; and for all those men and women across the world who sacrifice their safety and their freedom and sometime their lives for the cause of peace.

That has always been the cause of America. That's why the world has always looked to America. And that's why I believe America will continue to lead.

Thank you very much.

Hey Christine,
I think this is a good thing. Seriously. It proves once and for all what a total joke a Nobel Prize is.

Basically, they were going to give him one no matter what, but if they had waited until the end of his Presidency, or at least until he had some sort of accomplishment to point to, they could have at least made an argument that he deserved it. What they have done now is to say that they really like Obama, and they agree with his politics and ideology (there's a shocker!) and they think he has good intentions, so they gave him a prize. 2 things on that. 1) as we all know, "the road to to hell is paved with good intentions." 2) if they are giving these things away because of peoples good intentions, most of us should get one.

I first saw the headline at work this morning (I get breaking headlines emailed to me at work) at like 4:30 AM and I just laughed and said, "Of course they did."

Hi Matt,

Yes. You are certainly correct! Giving the award to Obama has now officially made it a joke!

Michael Savage mentioned on his radio show that the original intent was to give it to "the person who shall have DONE the most to promote peace in the world during his life."

Certainly doesn't describe Obama - now does it?
