What the World - - Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize???

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/eu_nobel_peace

This blows me away!!!! Giving the world HOPE......whatever.


The Nobel Committee lauded the change in global mood wrought by Obama's calls for peace and cooperation but recognized initiatives that have yet to bear fruit: reducing the world stock of nuclear arms, easing American conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthening the U.S. role in combating climate change.

"Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," Jagland said.

Reagan only saved probably hundreds of thousands of lives by pushing for the defeat of Communism in the USSR. Why should that get an award?

Obama can bow to Saudis and tell the world how horrible America is. That deserves a prize!

And the world wide grovelling at the feet of Obama continues.

Good grief.

For what possible purpose would he be deserving of this?

He's giving the world HOPE - - hasn't gone through with anything yet, but just talking about it is deserving enough.

Yeah, but those are people. Cutting green house gases saves plants and ozone - that's what really matters.

Re: What the World - - Obama Wins Nobel Peace Priz

Ehh, always did think a peace prize named after the father of dynamite and owner of one of what was once one of the worlds largest armaments manufacturer's, wich Nobel himself converted to such from an ordinary steel mill, thus beating plowshares into swords, to be a bit ludicrous anyhow...

Re: What the World - - Obama Wins Nobel Peace Priz

LONDON – The surprise choice of President Barack Obama for the Nobel Peace Prize drew praise from much of the world Friday even as many pointed out the youthful leader has not yet accomplished much on the world stage.

"When I heard it on the radio I said Hallelujah!" said 65-year-old James Andaro. "It's God's blessing. This win is for Africa."

HUH?
