    This comment is quite insightful:

    If anything, this award makes Barry an object of redicule as even his ardent supporters know he has not earned it at all.

    to this position. Maybe, they are trying to make Obama feel better about losing the Olympics in Chicago. This certainly will not go over well with middle class Americans.
    I can't wait to hear what Ruah has to say about this.:lol::lol:

    Is Obama's Nobel a shade premature? - Blogs - The Sofia Echo

    Anyone know what a one term President looks like, just look at Obama and Carter???? It's a comin. ROTFLMAO The comparison on every agenda is an extremely strong resemblence.

    I agree wholeheartedly. In fact, I am a bit surprised that some of our conspiracy minded posters are not questioning whether or not the Nobel Price committee wasn't insulting our President in a somewhat underhanded way, rather than honoring him.

    It is wonderful that "OUR" president has received this honor.

    "ALL" American's should be extremely "PROUD"

    Darn, too bad they don't give an award for war-mongering. I guess that's something that WOULD go over well with "middle class Americans", huh?

    Peace being such an "un-American" thing????????????????????????????????????

    I might try to muster up a small bit of pride if someone could please tell me just what the hell he did in 12 DAYS to even get a nomination in before the February 1st deadline!! I can think of a hell of a lot more people a hell of a lot more deserving IMHO!

    Agree. And some are forgetting Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.

    So much of life is attitude and since it is Obama who brought a new era to replace the politics of war and fear he is deserving of the honor.

    "Agree. And some are forgetting Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson."

    Obama's win is not even worthy of comparison here. Roosevelt and Wilson at least had served time in office and DID SOMETHING worth of the nomination. Obama was in office only 12 DAYS before the Feb. 1st deadline for nominations. What, pray tell, exactly did he do?????

    Totally agree, this is not going to help him in the standing he has with every day Americans, it done nothing but confirm that the world thinks that he is a very weak President. He needs to remember, it's only Americans that vote for the President of America, not the world community.
