Obama Donates Nobel $ to Charity

Obama donates $1.4 million dollars of nobel prize money to charity. Now how many of you would do that?

Well, if I had the money that Obama had, perhaps I would. Duh!

I would imagine any other use of the money would have drawn a firestorm of controversy.

Now that's worth the Prize. Good job, Mr. President.

Re: Obama Donates Nobel $ to Charity

If he really wanted to do the RIGHT thing, he should have declined the award and let it be given to someone who really deserved it. Surely, even he can figure out that he didn't do anything to deserve it. And hopefully he could be humble enough to understand that there are others who have earned the right to receive it. (altho, in all honesty, I doubt it)

He's hardly the first to do so.
