This story is an utter waste of time. Obama is busy losing the war in Afghanistan and winning the war against freedom and liberty in the U.S., but instead of discussing real issues, we're talking about another botched decision of a bunch of leftist Norwegians.
The Nobel Peace Prize was a joke long before today's award. Let's review some of the recent laureates:
2009 - Barack Obama
2007 - Al Gore
2005 - International Atomic Energy Agency
2002 - Jimmy Carter
2001 - Kofi Annan
1994 - Yasser Arafat
Notably absent from the list: John Kerry and Bill Clinton. Maybe in 2011?
The Brits react: "Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration..."
This is not the first time the Norwegian Nobel committee has been accused of dispensing a prize on the basis of anti-Bush sentiment. The first Biennial Anti-Bush Nobel Prize went to Al Gore. Again, the Brits nail it: "The decision has inevitably been interpreted as a rebuke to President Bush, who beat Mr Gore by the narrowest of margins to win the White House in 2000..."
The Nobel Peace Prize traditionally goes to corrupt and inept leftists, so in that sense, this year's decision was right on the money. What's surprising about the decision to award Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize is that he is a corrupt and inept leftist with so few accomplishments (save for his courageous stance in support of leftist tyranny in Honduras).
The Norwegian Nobel Committee's deadline for nominations was February 1, just 11 days after Obama's inauguration.
