Not sure who is worse him or Hilary, but if we don’t wise up and do something about both of these and his czars, the America that so many thousands have died for, won’t be here for our future generations. And I can in all honestly say, I voted against both of them!!!!

Probably not!so the conclusion is that this was handed to president Obama not because of what he has achieved which considering it was awarded after only eleven days in office,but as a protest against George Bushes presidency.Any other conclusion can only validate that this was a decision that was political motivated.

Many people (myself included) don’t think he should have gotten the prize. But at least it was given for actual things he did.

Obama has done nothing. He has been given this award simply because of his popularity.

He might be a beacon of hope. Or a sign that Europe loves America now. Or a promise of better times. Or a source of kudos to America.

But these have nothing to do with the peace prize, or the actual peace work this award is supposed to recognise. And Obama’s winning this award has forever destroyed the meaning behind it.

And because the winning of this award is the product of Obama’s cult of personality, which he had a direct hand in creating, he is also personally to blame for this affair.

Whether he accepts or rejects this award, the damage has been done. Both to the nobel peace prize itself, and him being made to look like a over-worshipped fool.

Wait, you’re talking about a prize won by Kissinger. How can any ‘peace’ prize won by Kissinger not have died then? Your sour grapes are pathetic. It’s not like the guy awarded it to himself. Be mad at the Nobel committee if you want, but the recipient had nothing to do with it.

Do they have some shame left? They reinforce the Charles Darwin message that europeans are descendants of chimps trying to hang to branchless trees.

Not for anything he has actually done to forward the interests of peace.

As of today, the nobel peace prize is meaningless. It is just given to whoever we like, without actual consideration of what they did to deserve it.

Way to go, Obama. You just killed the nobel peace prize. I hope it was worth it.
