    Obama and the Missing Nobel Prize Money
    by SusanAnne Hiller

    The other day I pointed out the fact that President Obama has yet to donate the money he was awarded as the Nobel recipient. Obama stated he would donate the $1.4 million prize to charity. It’s been several weeks since he received the money and no one knows what’s happened to it.

    The US Code is very clear in Receipt and Disposition of Foreign Gifts and Decorations. The code states:

    Readers' comments at the end of the article are hilarious.

    Oy. Did he also blink his eyes unacceptably to you this morning? Let's crate a new post about that too.

    My guess would be ... hmmmm ... either ACORN or SEIU. They ARE entangled with each other and God only knows how many other entities operating under the ACORN umbrella. Perhaps it's a "thank you donation" for all the involvement in the collapse of the housing market and advice being tendered regarding government healthcare for the masses.

    Where's the money?

    Try to address the topic occasionally.

    Jeezus H Christ, Obama can be bitched at for a lot of things but this ain't one of them, you could at least give him the 60 days the law allows before proclaiming this missing money bull shit, you partisan hacks never quit do you

    Try to create an interesting topic that doesn't slam Obama for pointless bullshit and doesn't present you as a fucking idiot partisan hack.

    From the article:
    He should immediately give this money to the Red Cross for Haiti relief. Agree?

    I didn't create the thread, or the topic.

    Have you NO intelligent response to it?

    Thought not.

    I don't know why he even bothered to say he would donate it...but he did. With that said, as long as it's donated within a year...I see no way this should be thrown in his face.
