President Obama is a rockstar. Seriously he makes Al Gore look like a kid on American Idol. And nothing says that more clearly than the Nobel Peace Prize of 2009.
President Obama has won the Nobel for
Are they serious?
It was also stated that
“The Nobel committee praised Obama’s creation of “a new climate in international politics” and said he had returned multilateral diplomacy and institutions like the U.N. to the center of the world stage.”
Wow. That is something indeed. Let’s see. In the last 9 months, President Obama has prolonged the U.S. financial crisis – thus keeping the world in a recession at the same time. President Obama has developed such a wonderful climate in international politics that Iran has been hurling missiles and racing along with a nuclear weapons program without hesitation. Which says nothing of the fact that North Korea was busy shooting off its own rockets while President Obama asked them nicely to stop doing that – they responded by firing off more rockets.
Well, maybe ending nuclear proliferation is to big a task for just 9 months on the job. And President Bush is responsible for the Obama Stimulus, the increases in unemployment, the near exponential growth of the national debt, and just about everything else. At least that’s what VP Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and MSNBC keep saying.
But President Obama stands up for people. He is the staunch ally for the poor and downtrodden. Except he had nothing to say to the people of Iran as they begged for help after their national elections. While the world watched protest after protest, with the people asking for help, President Obama said nothing.
Ok, how about being green? It worked for Al Gore. Except that President Obama hasn’t done anything to move that along either. More importantly, he has placed absolutely no pressure – or even a nudge – on China, India, and several other nations whose growth in developing is creating more of a carbon footprint than if America matched every proposed green climate change President Obama ever mentioned.
Number of nuclear weapons in the world? The same if not increasing. Stability in the Middle East? Nope. America is still fighting in Iraq, and will be for a while more. Afghanistan is just getting revved up for the fighting going on their. Iran is busy feeding fighters in both nations with weapons and supplies, while keeping an iron fist on its own people. And Israel is getting antsy as they plan to bomb the hell out of someone over there. Freeing the detainees at Guantanamo? Not anytime soon. No other nation will take them, and so far no place in America is either safe, secure, or willing to take the detainees.
Honestly, what has President Obama done in the last 9 months that deserves a Nobel Prize?
Well he has smiled at lots of people. That alone is worth it’s weight in gold I suppose. Plus he has spoken, which we know gets growen men over at GE’s news media wing all aflutter. Not only did he speak, but President obama has wasted no time in rushing about the globe to apologize for everything but the existence of America. You know Chavez and Castro were loving that. If I were the British I’d feel slighted for president Obama not apologizing for the Reveloutionary War. (Well he did give the Queen an Ipod of all his speeches so that must count for something)
All in all the only thing I can think of that President Obama has done so far that might be worthy of any recognition so far is winning the election and becoming ther first Black President. Plus the fact that in a world of instant fame and popularity he is probably the biggest political draw in the world. As I said in the onset, he is a rockstar politician. But I didn’t know that was worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize.
If the world is not on the road to hell, we can sure see it from here.
