Obama winning Nobel Peace Prize? Does he deserve it?

How does someone Sworn in on January 21, 2009 win the Nobel Peace Prize in the category of peace when nominations must be postmarked by February 1, 2009??? What did he do in ten days to qualify him? Talk about would unity and peace? Please. I want world peace too. Should I get one for saying it? No. Because haven't done anything. Just like him. If you are one of supporters do you honestly think he deserved it? Go to the noble peace prize web page and see some of the astounding things some people have done. To put him in the same category as them is an embarrassment and insult to them.

    It is the desire of the socialist nations that Mr. Obama rules this sector of the N.W.O.

    Of course not, it was a liberal reward for conforming to European standards. You know the Swedes brag about how they have avoided war for a hundred years. Yes, they helped Germany by supplying her with steel during the WW2, so if that is pacifism, we don't need their brand. On the other hand the Norwegians fought back yet were invaded and I still don't unterstand why a Swedish award is given out in Norway.

    The prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronizing in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace.

    The Peace Prize is used to promote an essentially pacifist agenda. Pacifism does not usually bring peace. The paradox of peace through strength is a powerful paradigm which must be seriously pondered!

    Those who say President Obama didn't do anything for the Peace Prize must get all their "news" from Fox.

    Aside from outlawing torture? That was a HUGE thing to all the other countries of the world. The missile defense system that President Bush wanted to install in northern Europe infuriated the Russians creating an atmosphere that could have started another Cold War. President Obama defused the issue by substituting deployed ships equipped with Aegis missile platform to protect the ME and Northern Europe. A brilliant move, why, because the Aegis missile system is capable of intercepting the short and medium range missiles of Iran without threatening Russia.

    Obama's ME policy of getting consensus views from all parties with the intent of reaching an agreement through consensus is a new concept. His ME policy has yet to yield results, but it is better than ignoring the key members in the dispute, as was the way of the Bush administration.

    Korea is at the tables and talking with the Six world powers; Iran, with prodding, is now opening the doors to inspections of its nuclear facilities, and the Free World is working together to solve the economic problems initiating by the bad practices of Wall Street and our Banking industry. Obama immediately repealed the policy of torturing prisoners, under the Bush administration; the torturing of prisoners had disheartened the rest of the world and everyone was elated with Obama’s announcement. Obama's getting Russia in line with the US (instead of with China) over Iran was nothing short of astonishing.

    Obama has done plenty to deserve the Noble Peace prize. He has given the world-at-large hope!

    It's a nice chunk of cash, but the prize itself is meaningless. Half the people who won it were either brutal thugs or fanatical meddlers. In either case they did nothing to create peace.

    President Obama was selected for his work in Peace. He has done this way before even considering running for President. He also changed the History in the United States of America. He is the first President that is 1/2 Black. The only jealous, embarrassing , insulting object is you. Don't you have any Loyalty to our President. I am full Norske and I know it was done for a good reason.

    I have to agree with Obama, NO.

    I can’t believe he did not decline it!!! Did you see the other nominees? THEY deserved it and could have really used the money to further their cause.

    Mr. Obama is great and did more in 10 days than any other president did in 10 years. We need to wake up and let our new crowned messiah go to work. He wants good for all of us. You obviously have not read about how to be an obamanite. The first step is to first know that Obama is the greatest.
