    The nominations deadline for the Nobel Peace Prize was 12 days after barack took office. So.....basically barack was a senator that voted "present" 134 times, he didn't accomplish ANYTHING as a senator, and yet somebody thought he deserved to be nominated. Funny stuff! Since winning the election the ONLY thing he has actually done is spend 800 BILLION tax payer dollars. What a JOKE! The reasons given for him winning are....."because of his initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy." Because he's the ONLY president that has ever WANTED to do those things! It's almost as big of a joke as barack himself is!

    This is wonderful.

    A Republican president has not done this since 1906.

    I am in total agreement with this decision.

    But our experience under Bush was so marginal at best that an average qualified candidate would have appeared as a statesman in comparison.

    This is BOUND to rile the Tea Party crowd.

    I get the "extraordinary effort" bit - no other American president has spent more time healing the world's woes rather than lead the nation he was elected to!

    I find that scandalous!

    Source(s): All part of the plan, and I'm sure the news of his win will come as a complete "surprise" to him Start joining the dots America!

    Except in Gaza, where he sat on his hands and let Israel illegally invade at the turn of this year.

    ....and loses the war against terrorism while destroying America from within.

    I can see how those who hate America would award him for that.
