What is there to discuss? If you say anything even remotely critical of "the one" then the topic disappears.

I don't understand this one. I'm not anti-Obama like so many but this one doesn't make sense to me.

What do you mean? No one else is doing anything peaceful!

This will be moved to the debate forum as soon as one of the mods wake up...lol... But... I'm just curious what the peace prize was actually given for... What has he really done as far as his job goes? What has he done to promote peace in the world. We're still in Iraq. We're obviously going to ramp up in Afganistan. Gitmo is still functioning. Besides 'promising' to stop two...and win the other (which his several weeks of waffling is upsetting not just the military)... what has he actually done to promote peace in the world? Please don't give me the rhetoric that he has 'lifted the worlds view of us after the mess Bush made...' I'm no fan of any politician...Bush, Obama, Dem, Rep, Ind....any of em, but I'm a man of actions...not just words...You don't give someone kudos just because they popular...........today.

:rolleyes: Still on that, are you ?

From what I've read, he's being given the award for promoting peace between Muslims and the rest of the world. It must have been a slow year for the peace movement.

Slow indeed. Nothing he's done in this regard has been worthy of the Nobel prize for Peace, IMO.

It's telling when CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS morning news all say the same thing..

"This came out of left field and was totally unexpected."

CBS anchor even said "When it popped up on my computer screen I though it was spam."

It will be interesting to see how his handlers attempt to use this to leverage their agenda..

Wonder if Nobel voters and Olympic voters are the same voters.
Never mind :)
