From The New York Times:
WASHINGTON — President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” a stunning honor that came less than nine months after he made United States history by becoming the country’s first African-American president.The award, announced in Oslo by the Nobel Committee while much of official Washington — including the president — was still asleep, cited in particular the president’s efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
“He has created a new international climate,” the committee said.This has to be the most absurd thing I have ever seen in all my life. Obama has done absolutely nothing to earn the award and his efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons has all the potential for an epic failure.
I think the world is trying to mock Obama. They know what a big narcissist he is and are playing on that big time. If I were Obama I would find a very polite way to say "Thanks, but no thanks" to this award. With three years to go in his presidency and oh so much to go wrong, this award has the ability to make Obama an international joke and America a complete laughingstock for electing such an unqualified man.
Obama for the sake of American pride and your own self image, turn this award down!
Let me hear your thoughts, do you think Obama should turn down the Nobel Prize?
