    He's too important. Would he snub an invite from say...Castro? Chavez?

    :eusa_whistle:

    I don't blame them for being angry.

    I'm watching live shots right now, they look happy to see him. Maybe the Guardian is incensed over the snubs..

    obviously B.O. is giving the prize as much attention and respect that it deserves.

    The Norwegians are taking this way too personally, IMO. The prize for peace is such a joke and I would prefer that BHO concern himself with our affairs, rather than this window dressing for a joke. He's doing the right thing.

    If he met all the engagements and went thru all the ceremonies that previous winners did you would be attacking him the whole time for being overseas, not deserving the award, and not wanting to lead ... things like that.

    Like I said in del's thread about this ... it's a no win situation for Obama.
