President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation.
The stunning choice made Obama the third sitting U.S. president to win the Nobel Peace Prize and shocked Nobel observers because Obama took office less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline. Obama’s name had been mentioned in speculation before the award but many Nobel watchers believed it was too early to award the president.
The guy hasn’t done a damn thing for peace. Nada. Nothing. Unless you count making sure that the Olympics didn’t land in Chicago and therefor insuring drunken Bears’ fans didn’t beat the crap out of some fancy-dressed ice skaters. (No insult to Bears’ fans, it’s just a joke.)
That’s it, every sane person on Earth has officially woken up in Bizzaro World.
Then again, he is in good company.
Jimmy Carter won a Nobel too and Barry is certainly Carter II, only with more coolness.
This is a joke, right? An Onion piece. Surely it is. There is no way in God’s green earth that this man who has accomplished even less than Al Gore towards world peace could win a Nobel Peace Prize.
Jimmy Carter, Yassar Arafat, Al Gore, and now Barack Obama?
A terrorist supporting anti-Semite, an actual terrorist, a buffoon, and a empty-suit socialist.
Now that is a track record to be proud of Sweden. (or is it Norway?) (Oh, who the hell cares, they just gave the peace prize to Barack Obama for heaven’s sake.).
Still, one more time with gusto. Say it with me.
Oh, and even overseas they are saying it.
No one is buying this. Even his supporters are going to have a hard time with it. And as the story said, even he must be a little embarrassed (Well, he might be except that he is a total narcissist.) The Nobel Prizes for peace have become the equivalent of those YMCA soccer leagues where no score is kept, no rankings are listed, and everyone gets first place.
Hell, Barry barely showed for practice and he got first place.
In a fair world every one of the comedy shows – Letterman, Leno, Tonight Show, Stewart, SNL, etc. – would be doing jokes about this for weeks.
But this isn’t a fair world. Nor particularly sane it seems.
Anyway, one more time, shall we?
Oh, one last question.
If Iran goes nuclear and ends-up nuking Israel and we have a small nuclear exchange in the Middle East does he get to keep it? Because this is like being presented a gold medal at the Rio Olympics before the race and then coming in last with a limp.
Embarrassing to say the least.
