Nobel Laureate Obama – huh?

According to the Nobel Prize committee president Obama wins this years Peace Prize for his “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” Nominations were due to the committee on Feb. 1, Obama took office on Jan. 20 – Hello! What has he accomplished to date let alone in his first twelve days as president other than spout high sounding rhetoric? It appears that what I say I’m going to do is as good as doing it. However it may simply be a consolation prize for not getting the Olympics or for the inability to un-prize George W. Bush.

According to Republican strategist, Ed Rollins “Three speeches is a start.. … Is it really that he built peace in the world or that he wants peace? I congratulate him for it. The key thing is what does he do now to earn it.” I say don’t hold your breath.

Sharing the honor with former winners such as Internet Al Gore the prophet of the myth of global warming, PLO leader Yasser Arafat and Jimmy Carter the heretofore worst U.S. President and champion of Socialism, one can see the Committee has a peculiar taste when it comes to acceptance of unproven speculation as fact, terrorists and left wing idealism.

Hope and change folks!
