Nobel Prize for Diddly Squat Awarded to Obama
Pardon me, but has anyone considered the fact that Obama has done diddly squat for peace? Does anyone think for one moment that the fix WASN’T in? The deadline for applications for the Nobel Peace Prize expired about the twelfth day of Obama’s presidency. At that point, he was still in campaign mode, patting himself on the back in numerous speeches and traveling around talking about himself, when not in the oval office writing executive orders to push his agenda bypassing the legislative branch and giving lavish parties packed with celebrities.
He did nothing as a U.S. Senator except travel to Kenya to campaign for Raila Odinga in their presidential elections of 2008, which erupted into brutality and murder when Odinga did not win. So much violence prevailed that the winner felt compelled to create an equal position of power and install Odinga as Prime Minister for the sole purpose of saving the lives of the tribe of the duly elected President. Perhaps the President of Kenya should have received the Nobel Peace Prize.
When comparing Obama’s lack of any accomplishments to those of the other winners, it is an embarrassment. It’s more “Hope” than “Change”. Visit http://nobelprize.org/ to read about the winners of the other categories, especially the prize for literature awarded to Huerta Muller, “whose writings in German chronicle, with honesty and poetry, life under dictatorship in her Romanian homeland. Learn about life under a dictator before giving the Obama administration any more un-Constitutional powers.
Even the Nobel institution has been corrupted, or so it seems. Ronald Reagan courageously ended the Cold War and brought down the Berlin wall allowing East and West Berlinians the freedom to see relatives separated for decades. “Mr. Gorbachav, tear down this wall!” Ronald Reagan;, in a speech at the Brandenburg Gate commemorating the 750th anniversary of Berlin, by the Berlin Wall on June 12, 1987, Reagan challenged Gorbachev, then the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, to tear it down as a symbol of Reagan’s desire for increasing freedom in the Eastern Bloc.
The wall came down and Reagan was never awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Tangible results vs. more empty “hope and change” rhetoric. Shame on the Nobel Foundation for being so shallow. The other recipients can’t feel as proud of their awards as they could if the Nobel Prize was truly given to those whose accomplishments were worthy of recognititon.
George W. Bush actually, rather than merely talked about, liberated about 50 million Iraqis from the brutal dictator, Saddam Hussein, and the murdering, torturing, raping of innocents by Uddai and Cussai Hussein, but no one in the Nobel Prize Committee could find a reason to award President Bush. It makes me wonder what is the purpose of the Nobel awards. Bush also made Afghani women free to attend school and ran the Taliban out of “Dodge”, giving more safety and security to Afghanis. Still no award. But, in their view, Obama’s teleprompted speeches were far more worthy of recognition.
(Did anyone else notice how gray Obama’s hair looked today while making his speech regarding his Nobel Prize? That’s a “change” for sure!”)
