Obama Awared Nobel Peace Prize

OSLO The announcement drew gasps of surprise and cries of too much, too soon. Yet President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday because the judges found his promise of disarmament and diplomacy too good to ignore.
The five-member Norwegian Nobel Committee four of whom spoke to The Associated Press, said awarding Obama the peace prize could be seen as an early vote of confidence intended to build global support for the policies of his young administration.

As did Jimmy Carter, Yasir Arafat, and Al Gore.

He may as well have won a free box of fries at McDonald's for all the credibility the Nobel prize has. Its a partisan political hack award bestowed by the Norwegian Parliament to reward anyone who puts America down.

On very rare occasions to they give that award to someone who actually deserves it.

"Promises of disarmament" ...?

A non-***slur deleted**** politician makes a promise, and people roll thier eyes. Obongo makes a promise and he gets a Nobel prize. Never even mind the fact that if we disarm, we will be destroyed... Let's just give up the whole cabbage and assume that disarmament is a good thing. A promise equals a Nobel prize all of a sudden?

Nice.

Read my lips: No new ***slur deleted***!

Where's my Nobel prize?

If I ever became president I would end the nuclear problem... I'd do that by first forcing my allies to give me all their missiles, then force my enemies to surrender theirs under the threat of trade embargoes and war.
 
The trick is to tell them is a nice calm way that you will kill them if they don't do exactly what you want. They have to think you are crazy enough to actually do it, that's the trick.
