    Obama received his Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo Thursday. What's your opinion on his speech about how just the war could be? Don't you think it is inappropriate?

    I am not an Obamaite, a fan, but I do think he gave a good speech here.

    He stated flat out to Oslo, to people who think just a spoon full of sugar can make peace go round, that he has no solution to war, that in his life-time there will be war, and he will wage it if necessary.

    The other thing he did was contrary to almost every other speech on foreign affairs he has given thus far, he did not apologise for the USA’s role in the world, and he reaffirmed it.

    I like this speech and I hope Obama believes it.

    The guy can talk on a scripted speech... does not change the fact he's a horrid President and leader, with entirely the wrong ideas for what our government is supposed to be and is supposed to do

    Strange, most rightwing pundits said the speech was reminiscent of George Bush

    Said the guy spoke a good scripted speech...

    Does not change the fact that his ACTIONS as President have been in entirely the wrong direction and will probably continue to be that way

    He should not have given an acceptance speech, because he shouldn't have been awarded the Nobel prize. How good his speech may have been doesn't really enter into it.

    Well he was awared the Nobel Peace prize. Did he deserve it?? I haven't figured out what he did to receive it but he did recieve it. He's also one of three American Presidents to be awared the Nobel. He is the only one who actually went to Stupidhagen to collect it.

    I don't like Obama or the directioin he is trying to take this country but I do think he gave a good speech. Unlike some I will give credit when its due. Just my opinon.
