Obama wins nobel peace prize... unbelievable...?

Okay, where to start... First of all he was only in office for like 11 days before the nomination deadline. He hadn't done anything yet except make promises pretty much. Nobel PEACE prize committee giving the prize to someone who supports abortion. Hmm yeah that definitely makes a lot of sense. Irena Sendler should have received it. She just died earlier this year and she had helped save many many Jewish children during WW2. Someone who actually thinks of the innocent unlike somebody else... Just goes to show how stupid the committee is...

Update:

thats another reason why it's so retarded. it should be allowed to be given to those who have passed away.

    The much coveted Nobel prize is now for sale. What a pity? I think they could have given it to Obama daughters justifying it that they will be doing a great job in future. It would have been appropriate than giving Obama. If only talks can get you awards then the world is going out of spin. Nobel prize for Chemistry, Physics all have gone to people who did research a decade ago on the subject and it was reviewed so many times before they got. But in Obama's case just a paper clipping saying that he is going to do a great job - Or was it from his town hall meetings?- he got the peace prize. Just say 'peace' and you can get it. Long live peace.

    It wasn't rigged. With the help of others Obama won it fair and square. Obama would be the first to admit that. That is basically the jist of what he said. His quote was quite similar to this one made by Mitt Romney in 2002: "You Olympians, however, know you didn't get here solely on your own power," Romney said after congratulating the athletes. "For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them."

    I will find a cure for cancer next week. There will be no more suffering from this dread disease ever again.

    Now give me a Noble Prize.

    If anybody ever deserved it, it was Irena Sendler.

    Even Obama supporters, like myself, are against this because it is so ludicrous. He hasn't done anything yet! Really bad decision by the Nobel committee, if they loved Obama so much, couldn't they at least wait a few more years until he has actually done something?

    Prizes like that are for men or women who DESERVE IT.

    They work their entire lives devoted to some top notch cause

    Note the word "WORK"

    there is PROOF, VIABLE RESULTS and consequences of all that "WORK"

    PROMISES dont count.

    If the award is given to charlatan politicians and celebrities who simply promise peaceful projects, then the award is not even good as a doorstop.

    Tell them to keep it.

    How could Irena Sendler receive it if she passed away???? Obama got the Nobel peace prize for his hard work. President Obama has been trying to improve the quality of life in the United States of America (unlike Bush). Obama deserves respect for what he does, the guy is doing a much effective job than Bush.

    With Bush, America was put into debt (because much of the taxpayers money went to waste), the people were lied into an illegal war (Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bush told the American people on Sept.11 that he would find Osama bin Laden but failed to do so. Bush lied to the American people anout Iraq having weapons of mass destruction), New orleans disn't get any help from the Bush administration after Hurricane katrina (because New Orleans was an impoverished city), the US economy was mismanaged (no regulations on big banks).

    Obama is not a miracle worker, he is doing his job as President. It sounds like the opponents are not giving him a chance at all. He was elected by the American people and for the American people (If opponents are going to act like bigots, that's their problem. They shouldn't use slander or defamation against Obama to suit their own ends. Obama is not a dictator because he is giving ALL Americans their freedoms and rights).

    Obama was not unknown around the Globe prior to becoming President and his philosophy was being embraced for some time. Foreign Leaders saw him as a Peacemaker not a Warmonger.
