What? Where has Obama achieved peace? You can win a Nobel peace prize for wishing for world peace now? Shouldn't Obama share his prize with the last 50 winners of the Miss America Pageant? I suppose its not any worse than Al Gore winning for his Global Warming scare talk, but it now appears being a prominent, self important, left wing radical is all it takes to win a Nobel Peace Prize? These things should starting coming with a box of Cracker Jacks!Dan Pankowsky wrote:
Mr. Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after wishing for World Peace. He narrowly beat out Miss Japan and Miss Croatia who, during the Miss Universe competition, also wished for World Peace. However, both the runner up contestants for the prize lost out during the swimsuit competition to Mr. Obama.Robert Vaughn wrote:

I was proud that an American won the Nobel prize, but was taken aback by who was to receive the award. If it was for encouragement I can understand the award for he has accomplished nothing during his term as President. President Bush II did much more in actual work to help the world to piece, confronted North Korea and Iran, funded aids research and treatment in the third world. Removed a dictator and a repressive in Afghanistan, but he is vilified for being a right wing despot. I don't understand the committees reasoning. It must be a left wing thing.Chukkal Mason wrote:

To be fair, Obama hasn't done any less to further peace than, say, Yasser Arafat, IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei, or Al Gore.Craig Bills wrote:
It's hardly an honor to win, since it is merely a vehicle for liberals, apologists, and socialists--not to mention terrorists--to pat each other on the back.
The Noble Peace Prize, the Pulitzers, the Academy Awards, have all become politized. They're now just awards from Leftists to Leftists for being Leftists.
