    Good Opinion Piece - Not a thread to pick on Obama as he did not ask for the award ...

    the author feels the reward needs to be retired ... I agree. The world is a mess ...

    nobody deserves it
    and that would have been the best choice of all.

    Long on opinions, short on facts. The basis for the arguments against each are using opinions as facts that aren't substantiated by any means.

    Never said that, I said it was using opinions as facts and aren't substantiated by any means. It's two damn short, it could have been a great in depth analysis of the past award winners but instead it reads like a cheap opinion piece that used obscure examples to try to justify when there were others that would make more sense to use that every kid learned about in school: Wilson and the Mexican incursion by US troops over a year that found nothing but humiliation and Roosevelt and the building of the Panama Canal which stole a strip of Panama for the US splitting the country in two that would not be given back until the 1990s.

    The Prize would have meant far more if Obama was on the road to "PEACE", Obama and his gang preached "Change We Can Believe In" nothing has changed, they may have become worse, Bush was Hated and he was called a Moron because he beat the Democrats, twice, his policys remain, the wars still rage, troops are still dying, Gitmo is still open and now we have this ungodly Government run health care trying to be forced on us, we could say "things have changed" yes, things are WORSE, Pop Culture has elected a Professional Chicago Bullsh!t Artist who has in the last 9 months done nothing, there is No Change except now the Dictators and the America Haters love our new president.

    WHERE ARE THE WAR PROTESTERS WHERE HAVE THEY GONE

    THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE HAS BECOME A LEFT WING LIBERAL JOKE PEOPLE WHO DON'T RECIEVE IT SHOULD BE PROUD OF THAT HONOR.

    People play this like it is something he lobbied for or something he could control, seems pretty snobbish to imply that it should no longer exist.... we have nothing to do with this as a nation, it is an award from a foreign nation... take it or leave it. Just because they perceive he deserves it, does not mean a lot, except it descends into another play regarding partisan politics... personally seems to be a reaction to the end of the neo con rule that we were subjected to for the last 8 years... he will give the 1.4 million to charity... so what???

    What Did He Do To Deserve It

    Why Did They Give It To Him

    Has He Accomplished Some Great, Thing If So, What?

    Why do you care so much, it is not as though he campaigned for it or had any f..ing control over it... take it for what it is worth, a bunch of PC europeans who think they did the right thing...

    I know he didn't look for it, I can't understand what he did to make them choose him outside of going over there and trashing his own country, war still rages under him, he plans on sending more troops to die, Terrible Gitmo remains open, he continues the Bush Policy and gets the Nobel Peace Prize.............:singing:

    Quite simply, he is not George Bush and does not believe in the Neo Con Philosophy.... do not get the trashing his own country stuff...
