    how do you fuck up accepting the Nobel Peace prize? :lol:



    "Barack Obama's trip to Oslo to pick up his Nobel peace award is in danger of being overshadowed by a row over the cancellation of a series of events normally attended by the prizewinner.

    Norwegians are incensed over what they view as his shabby response to the prize by cutting short his visit.

    The White House has cancelled many of the events peace prize laureates traditionally submit to, including a dinner with the Norwegian Nobel committee, a press conference, a television interview, appearances at a children's event promoting peace and a music concert, as well as a visit to an exhibition in his honour at the Nobel peace centre.

    He has also turned down a lunch invitation from the King of Norway.

    According to a poll published by the daily tabloid VG, 44% of Norwegians believe it was rude of Obama to cancel his scheduled lunch with King Harald, with only 34% saying they believe it was acceptable."

    nicely done, mr. president, it's damned hard to piss off the norwegians, but you managed it handsomely.

    "Of all the things he is cancelling, I think the worst is cancelling the lunch with the king," said Siv Jensen, the leader of the largest party in opposition, the populist Progress party. "This is a central part of our government system. He should respect the monarchy,"

    :thup:

    IMO, BHO is right for doing this. The prize for peace is a joke and he has more important things to do than this window dressing.

    I was watching the news this AM and from what the reporter was saying, he's the first President to ever actually go to collect the thing. There have been two other American Presidents that received it. I still can't figure out what the hell he did TO receive it??? Walk, talk, breath??? Mystery to me.

    It's Norway.... who the hell cares what they think!

    However, it does beg the question "does anyone in this administration actually have any idea what they are doing?" It appears that surrounding yourself with felons and 'community organizers' is not such a good idea as surrounding yourself with people who actually know how to run a fucking country. What a bunch of idiots.

    Everyone here and all over the net as well as the news has said the prize isn't worth a shit, that he has done nothing to deserve it, that it means nothing, and so on so why is everyone bitching about his taking very casually something that is a useless empty piece of shit doorprize likely bestowed by the Norwegians to memorialize what, that the majority of the US finally flipped the KKK a bird?

    If the prize is give-a-shit, then why the big deal over it?

    Maybe he REALLY went to Norway to get one of their politicians to arrange a secret meeting to tell a Swedish secret agent to tell Elin's mother not to have a heart attack over tabloid bullshit.

    In other words, who even cares.

    This is just another oh yawn moment.
