    Having followed these threads closely throughout the day this does not surprise me. It seems to me that most people think that it was too soon and that he may possibly be deserving of it in the future, just not yet. And for the most part, that doesn't seem to be just one side's opinion but most of those who are not just plain partisan hacks seem to feel that way.

    I wonder what TM thinks of this? Where has she been today?

    I dont want to go into that. I'd like for this thread to not sink to a "liberal media vs. Fox News" thread. Theres hundreds around here I'm sure.

    What I meant was, given the responses from USMB which seem to be pretty evenly split, the results are surprising (to me at least).

    I wasnt too clear on what I meant, sorry.

    I heard Acorn infiltrated the Nobel committee, so we know the results are fake. :)

    Sorry, TruthMatters. Some call her "Truth Never Matters".

    She's a sweetheart if you can get around her love for the Democratic Party and her hatred of anything right of third base.

    You think I have? :tongue:

    TM and I go way, way back. We butt heads all the time, but we have struck up a friendship.

    She used to tell me that she was not a partisan hack and that I would see that when the Democrats took office. She would say that when they did, she would not let them get away with anything as she refused to do with the Republicans, but, the truth of the matter is that she simply disappeared edit: after the proper period of gloating that is when President Obama took office. I don't think she can do that in fact, I know she can't.

    I cannot say I am too surprised by this poll...any clear-thinking adult can see that Obama simply hasn't done anything to warrant a nomination, let alone the award.

    Perhaps he will sometime in the future, but this is ridiculous, and is an insult to those who actually worked for their Nobel awards.
