  • Marty Bowsky - 10 years ago

    Does anyone have "spellcheck", or even know about it? How can you expect to be taken seriously when you cannot put a decent sentence together?
    And, of course, no, our esteemed president has not yet, nor probably never will, do anything to earn the now-tawdry prize.

  • Frank - 10 years ago

    Atleast the man is trying to save lives and getting ayone killed for his own selfish reason. Anyone who is against this award hates America and our freedoms. These people are just pitiful. I bet these same people have never been in the Military, and they also believe that Bush deserves the Anti Nobel Peace prize for strating these wars.

    God Bless

    Obama has DONE NOTHING to deserve this award. He HASN'T KEPT ONE PROMISE that he made during his campaign. All this media hype over a man whose only achievement is that his sperm donor was from Africa. He's not even "African-American" in the "true" sense of what "African-American" means. This whole Obama media hype is nauseating. Can anyone say "The Emperor's New Clothes" ?????

  • ugh!!!!!!!!! - 10 years ago

    OK, first of all, Y R ALL OF U SO UPSET ABOUT THIS?? Obama 1 the NPP. What's wrong with that?- is it because u think he's so famous that he doesn't deserve anything? if u ask me, i am personally wondering y u guys keep saying he DOESN'T deserve it. u just think he is winning all of these awards 4 being famous. Now, let me ask u something. What do u have 2 do 2 become famous in the field of politics?- be either really bad at it or really, really good at it. Now, let me ask u something else. is Obama an improvement on Bush? i bet most of u r going 2 say yes. if u say no, u must b crazy. if u say yes, that means that u think Obama is better than Bush, a.k.a. u think he is ok or good or great. that means, according 2 u, he is famous 4 being better rather than worse. now do u get it??

  • Ms.Carol Dijkhuyzen - 10 years ago

    For crying out loud...our President Bam deserves more than this Nobel Award.
    He's the only President who encourages........CHANGE....Unity...regardless of religion andthe color of your skin....he gives everyone the feeling that we are wanted and we can CHANGE for the better...for that alone he deserves another biggest award.
    I will announce once again...there you are...
    BAM IS THE WORLD.

    Congrats Mr Obama. You deserves this Nobel Peace Price. God wants you to be honoured. Only true man can win this Nobel Peace Price. A man who want peace surely peace will attain him.
    You mean Mr Arafat and Mr.Carter the village idiot? They both "won" you know

  • Bill - 10 years ago

    He deserved the prize because he received the five votes from the Peace Prize selection committee. Nobody else's opinion matters.

  • Bob Gotti - 10 years ago

    Honored By Men

    The honor that mere men bestow, is motivated by a political undertow,
    A hidden agenda that won’t prevail, as Eternal Truths these men assail.
    This man tickles hearts and minds, of people from nations of all kinds,
    Promoting peace that will never be, as they ignore the God of Eternity.

    A man addresses the world’s fears, skillfully tickling man’s many ears,
    Saying all that needs to be said, for men in darkness; spiritually dead.
    A body gathers together a majority, of men with eyes who cannot see,
    Spiritual darkness within the world, lifting up from it, a leader to herald.

    Woe, when all men speak well of you, as there is evil they cannot view,
    From the darker agenda of men, promoting a world God will condemn,
    A world where The Sovereign Lord, by many leaders is wholly ignored,
    Moving Nations into an amoral state, and men towards a godless fate.

    So mere men will continue to lift up, others, who are politically corrupt,
    Leaders who look to be fully able, but, go on making nations unstable,
    As the masses are blinded by, the enemy of God, Who reigns on high.
    Unknowing they’re deluded by him, to embrace an amoral world of sin.

    Political deception continues to rise, as the God on high, men despise,
    A world looking to man’s solution, will soon be met by strong delusion,
    As the darkest leader is be unfurled, to be honored by this entire world,
    And when by men, he is believed, Judgment from God will be received.

    i dont think its a consolation prize ,i think they are trying to degrade bush ,by supporting obama. may g-d have mercy on us.this world is going to hell in a handbasket ,with our country leading it, thanks to obama. and no i am not a racist.

  • Kim - 10 years ago

    Wow, how sad. The Nobel Peace Prize now has so little meaning especially when Obama is up against people like humanitarian Greg Mortenson (working to educate Pakistani and Afghan children, especially girls) Past winners include Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa....and now Barack who? He shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as the other winners.

    If Obama ever delivers on his enormouse list of promises perhaps one day he might actually deserve a prize.

  • affirmacist - 10 years ago

    Of course "OBAMA'S THE BEST" has to change the subject instead of addressing the issue...which is namely that President Obama has done nothing substantive to earn this award- let alone in only 12 days as President.

  • Ronnie - 10 years ago

    I think that this is a fraud, lets face it he has done nothing to deserve this award yet what about Al.Sharpton. What is this world comming to it just a matter of time before all hell break loose.

  • SMDH - 10 years ago

    Who else do you think should have gotten it?..GWB for screwing this country with no grease... How many black men still have hope left in this country? With all that we as a people (balcks) have gone thru in this great country and still go thru it on the daily basis..He still has hope..So yes I say they chose right to give it to him...Many black people have given up on this country not to mention we has the heart of a lion to want to stand up and fight for this racist country where black people have been mistreated for many many years..The only reason he hasn't been pulled over for racial profiling is becuase he has a giant motorcade that says President of the United States..And he still doesnt have huge bags under his eyes..So he sleeps well at night... He aint worried about the haters......Blacks have brains too..lol...should it have gone to Rush Lintball? Sarah Palin? Mclame? lmaoooooooooooo. He is being very peaceful for not putting all the dirt of this country on blastttttttttttttttttttt

  • Sweet Bobby - 10 years ago

  • Halwork - 10 years ago

    Peace prize for what????? And he was nominated 2 weeks after he was president !!!! Where's the beef??? I mean where's the peace? If he convinced all of the major European countries along with China & Russia to help us fight the Taliban and Islamic terrorists in the Middle East I'd throw him a bone and say what a great job he did. But a Peace prize???? He hasn't even closed Gitmo yet. WTF??? Give him a peace prize when he brings together his own party.They have a majority in both House & Senate,plus the Pres. is a Dem, but they can't pass anything WTF ???

    After President Bush, Obama is a fresh breath of air and it shows that the world respects us AGAIN after Bushs horrible Presidence.

    His worshipers still think he's a Messiah or God and if he kills someone they'll say look how good he looked doing it instead of the truth but the American people aren't buying what he's selling anymore and this Nobel peace prize is a JOKE, Its been given to liberals for years because the people giving it out are liberals so there's no surprise there. I bet if you ask the average American( NOT ALL LIBERAL PEOPLE) if they think he deserves any award most if not all will say no, he's a disaster as a president and just because he can read a monitor with a speech written by someone else doesn't make him a good president he's a idiot. Liberals are still taking shots at Bush but if you put the two in a room together and ask them questions I think Bush would do a hell of a lot better then the great king Obama, he's a joke and race hasn't one thing to do with it, if he was the genious liberals sold him as being everyone would support him but all we've seen has been him paying back liberal interest groups and destroying America. I bet the terrorist just sit back and laugh at the great Obama and democrats because they know their the biggest bunch of idiots and girly girls that has been in the office since Carter was president. The great Obama and democrats are weak idiots and they are a joke around the world at least Bush had a backbone and wasn't a coward. Again this Nobel peace prize is a joke just like the clown they gave it to today!

    Your inane commentary is laughable!!!!!!!!!!!

    BUSH was the biggest COWARD the world has ever known, PERIOD. WHY weren't HIS TWO lovely daughters on the FRONT LINES IN IRAQ supporting DADDIES POLICY!!!! DUMBAYA was such a coward he hid in a classroom as the WTC & Pentagon were being attacked!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The PIG got a BOGUS deferrment to skip out of his tour of duty in VIETNAM!!!!!!!!

    I just LOVE GOP REVISIONIST HISTORY, begins the moment their guy leaves office!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Norm - 10 years ago

    When I heard this on the news this morning, over coffee, I actually laughed because I thought it was a joke. The only thing this president did in his first 12 days in office was appologize for the United States. I was appalled at that but this is a disgrace. The only promise he has delivered in the past year is to give his girls a dog. I guess in their eyes he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize but everyone I have talked to today has had the same reaction as I did. Many of them are liberals and they seem to be rethinking their decision to have voted him in office in the first place. He should refuse it, plain and simple. Please tell me what he has done to deserve this.

  • ngysackman - 10 years ago

    he really won it for reading a teleprompter speech that someone else wrote...thats really brave!!!! LOL!

  • ngysackman - 10 years ago

    maybe he should split the money with Bush... obama has kept all of his policies and campaigned against those policies...A BIG HOAX ACROSS THE BOARD!!!

    Paul Krugman got a Nobel Prize basically for blaming every single problem on George W. Bush. Thats about all Krugman has ever done in his life: Whine, Complain and Blame. (Is that a Racist idea, too?).
    Maybe if Mr. President is not too busy doing his weekly appearance on Ellen, Oprah or Letterman, He'll have time to fly over and collect His big prize.
    What the heck did He do in His first 12 days, anyway?

  • janie - 10 years ago

    What a crazy world,if won he the prize,when I think the of people who truly deserve it,I am saddened,it dimishes the award in a big way,nothing to do with policy,just fairness and truth

  • Americalover - 10 years ago

    Wonder how much this prize cost George Soros??? The state run media is not so excited about this.........wonder why??? I heard Chip Reid ask Robert Gibbs if Obama ever considered refusing the prize. I think for the first time in his life he should have manned up, told the truth (I do not deserve this) and refused the award.

  • LarryB - 10 years ago

    If you read the pro OBamian statements on this or any blog, the people who support him don't base their opinion on fact or reality.

    They sound like religious fanatics in their defenses. Of course, how do you justify this guy winning anything? He cannot even get his own party to cooperate with him.

    Yes We Can must have been referring to him, his wife, the far left extremists (Sotomayor) and the frog in his pocket.

  • Bob Gotti - 10 years ago

    World Sacrifice

    Friend, very soon the Antichrist, will offer the world as a sacrifice,
    Leading into the Judgment of God, many across this earthly sod,
    And what will these many receive, from the one who will deceive?
    Nothing from him, they will see, as man’s reign will end tragically.

    He’ll use politicians to fulfill, his Dark and Devious End Time will,
    Darkened souls in full opposition, to every basic Godly position,
    Gathered by one, greatly praised, who shall usher in darker days,
    Asserting he is the people’s man, while supporting a Darker Plan.

    As bright as these men may be, they’re politically blind spiritually,
    Or quite aware of their schemes, promising many, hollow dreams,
    Lying to those called their own, with allegiance to a darker throne,
    Having the multitudes totally fooled, leading not like others ruled.

    They’ve no concern for those, for from darker ranks they’ve rose,
    To the position of preeminence, filled and lead by a darker sense,
    Making haste, to change all ways, as from Truth, a country strays,
    To the place we cannot turn back, never restoring all we truly lack.

    A universal change to this world, is what by men shall be unfurled,
    They may not even understand, they are puppets, in Satan’s hand,
    Taking multitudes to Hell with them, in that plan God will condemn,
    When destroyed with the Antichrist, when He ends their earthly life.

  • petez - 10 years ago

    I finally understand the phrase " winning isn't everything". It is about the liberal adgenda to advance average minded individuals and accomplishments with highly recognized awards to make them feel better. This world is not going to run on feelings. I hope I didn't hurt anyones feelings when they read this note. Maybe you should get a prize.

  • affirmacist - 10 years ago

    I would feel honored and proud of Obama and for the United States if he won it by earning it based on his accomplishments.

    As it stands now I'm embarrassed that the President of the United States has to be given an award he clearly doesn't deserve as it reflects poorly on the entire country. We are nation of do'ers and our accomplishments as a nation are great. We don't need false accolades or awards to feel patriotic about our country.

    If the leader of any other nation had won this honor, the people there would feel proud and honored. Some Americans have become so partisan and polarized that they have lost anything like real patriotism, clinging to a "my way or to hell with you" attitude toward the USA. Amazingly these are often found the same folk who routinely drape themselves -- or at least their lapel -- in the flag. We get incessant waves of that kind of distructive and hypocritical nonsense from talk radio, from some quarters of the press, and saddest of all, from too many pulpits.

  • canolia zanders - 10 years ago

    President Obama deserve this prize, the senate followering Mccain lead has vote to oppose everything he tries to accompolish. Maybe world leaders will help in his vision to make this world a better place.

  • affirmacist - 10 years ago

    Obviously Obama didn't choose himself to be the winner of this prize nor to be bestowed an honorary law degree from Notre Dame. He has chosen however to accept these awards when he clearly knows that he is not deserving of them and that he is displacing some one who does deserve them. As he stated himself at ASU "I haven’t done enough in my life” to even earn an honorary college degree and the ASU leadership was honest enough not to bestow it on him. To accept such an award at Notre Dame and now the Nobel Peace prize indicates to me the type of man he isn't- a man of character and principle. He should politely decline the award. That would be a great teaching moment about truth, decency and fair play. Unfortunately I don't believe Obama has it in him given he has taken advantage of affirmative action his entire life.

  • M - 10 years ago

    Can someone tell me when we will stop playing the race card? If someone disagrees with President Obama rgding anything, no matter what it is, automatically the race card gets whipped out. Amazing how it has never been an issue with any of the other Presidents. Makes sense....as does this award! What a joke

  • The Truth - 10 years ago

    You got to be ***king kidding me. May as well give one posthumously to Neville Chamberlain.

    Being a wuss does not ensure peace. Peace comes through strength, not weakness.

    But what do you expect from an organization that gave this award to clowns like Carter and Gore and a terrorist in Arafat?

  • Chris King - 10 years ago

    You know what annoys me about the comments above is many of you seem to blame Obama for this. The conservatives in this country think everything that goes wrong is the fault of the president and everything that goes right was their idea. Like I said above he does not deserve this award but don't blame him he did not bestow it upon himself. The country supported your president when we went to war (for no other reason then oil) and started this financial downfall that we have encountered over the last few years. 12 billion $ a month could go for better things then bullets and tanks, like books and better schools and stopping people from freely roaming over our borders.

  • affirmacist - 10 years ago

    The truth hurts doesn't it 'Mom'.

    You can't reply with any facts that support the opposite position because there are no facts to support your position and so you retreat to the 'hate speech' defense.

    What many folks 'hate' is people getting something they didn't earn and this is clearly yet another example of Affirmative Action on the part of the Nobel Peace prize committee. Its insidious in that it eats away at the morale, hopes and dreams of those who struggle to reach a goal without being handed it. It cheapens the attainment of a goal for every one.

    I certainly don't hate Obama. I pity him and any one else who could be so haughty as to accept an award that he clearly knows he doesn't deserve and for which he clearly knows he's taking away from some one who does deserve it.

  • Chris King - 10 years ago

    I am a supporter of the president but I was scratching my head after this one. Also to find out they came to this determination after only 8 days in office. I wonder if much of this came about because of his international speech in Germany before the election. It is nice to see our president noticed for international things but there are many things that need to be nationally first. I did like the fact that he was more surprised then anyone else.

  • aquarian ladyd - 10 years ago

    I always held this award in the highest regard. Giving it to a man who is so undeserving has shocked me, but then again they gave it to Jimmy Carter, so there you go. What a farce..........I hope some well respected people around the world will speak up against this. It's a sad day America.

  • David Gustafson - 10 years ago

    First, America's journalists checked their "who, what, where, when and sometimes, how" credentials at the door so they could have their hands free in to throw their underwear at their favorite Prom Queen during the last election, and now the Norwegians feel compelled to throw their underwear at the Prom Queen and award him the Nobel Peace Prize.
    This seem like a pathetic parody of Leni Reisental's "Triumph of Will."

  • affirmacist - 10 years ago

    Congratulations! We have the first Affirmative Action Nobel Peace Prize winner! This is what Affirmative Action begets: Judge Sotomayor becomes a Supreme Court Justice while she is a member of a sexist all female 'womans' club and Barack Obama wins a Nobel Peace prize. One obtains a position that intellectually she clearly wasn't qualified for simply because of her race and the other wins a prize simply because of the color of his skin! Neither qualified, neither actually accomplished anything of excellence in their respective field yet bleeding heart liberals give these people the highest awards and positions in the hopes that 'minorities' will be satisfied and that the hand wringing lefties will now feel good.

    After winning the presidency of the US for doing nothing more than sitting in a Senate chamber and voting 'present' 100 times it comes as no shock that the man who addmitted in Arizona that “I haven’t done enough in my life” to earn even a 'honorary' degree from Arizona State University is now bestowed the Nobel Peace Prize.

    The problem with this emperor is that he not only knows he has no clothes on but he doesn't care if every one else knows too.

  • Suzanne - 10 years ago

    I am more appalled by comments such as the reference to the antichrist and "shit no" than I am surprised by Obama's being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Why has the level of political discourse sunk to such a low point? Why do we have to denigrate those we disagree with to this extent? I think each one of us can further peace by speaking with respect and by basing our comments on issues. We all want what is best for our country and for the world. We may have differing views about how peace and well being are best engendered and protected - but don't we lessen our own character and integrity with slams and slurs about any body else, much less a democratically elected president of the United States.

    the world is ending. even the Nobel is stooping to the level of those MTV awards. Almost anyone and everyone can get one. I am not saying Mr. President should never receive such honor, but only after being in office for 12 days and not having done anything??? I won't argue that he would have earned one at the end of his term in office, but to have selected him for such honor after only 12 days in office is a joke. How much of that ACORN money did the selection committee receive?

    The Nobel Peace Prize is now completely worthless. Ahmadinijad should win it next year.

    The Obamessiah (Praise be to HIM!) won for the simple fact that he's black and won the presidency. That's it! He didn't do anything to promote peace. Hell, he was president for less than a month before the Nobel deadline, which was in February.

    The Nobel prize was reduced in stature when Al Gore and Jimmy Carter won theirs. Now it has sunk beneath whale dung.

    Shit no! Let's be frank, the bloke's a con artist of the highest quality. Fooled those Euro dopes into believing that saying nice things about evil regimes and enemies of the West will bring about world peace. Just because he's the anti-George Bush doesn't mean the world's gangster regimes will play nice. Foolish, foolish man! All he's done is legitimise the lunatic argument that 'America is the root of all evil' and belittled the USA as a force for the defense of liberty across the globe. This is a very sad day for Americans.

    I know why he won. The new title has been changed to Apologizer and Appeaser in Chief. Obama has been ultra cozy with Chavez, the pot-bellied Il Jung, Castro, & the nut job in Iran. He's also continued to downgrade our country in the eyes of the world, as if we're no better than any other nation. The liberal, lap-dog media follows his lead like trained pigeons. The Nobel committee is no better.

    This is absolute joke and a travesty to any rational thinking person and any of you morons throwing the weak-minded race card excuse can go F yourselves.

    Obviously john maher was right. Johny is showing his hatred now. the award should not have been given to a president that has not checked off anyting on the list. did you see SNL?

  • Bill - 10 years ago

    Like the man and his presidency, this is all part of one giant nightmare joke.

  • Daniel - 10 years ago

    JOHN MAHER how can you say that Mr Obama has not write this speach

  • Jules Hamil - 10 years ago

    What a FARCE! Words in a speech earns him this so-called "honored prize"?To my family, the Nobel Peace Prize is now nothing more than another political football.......no honor or integrity attached.

  • What was in the water the committe drank? - 10 years ago

    Mohandas Gandhi, was never awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Nominated 5 times!
    And now a rookie President is nominated!

  • johny - 10 years ago

    I think John Maher is a big bloody fool. You are a racist that is why you hate Obama. Obvoiusly it is clear.

  • John Maher - 10 years ago

    A couple of speaches the president didn't write and he gets the noble peace prize? It is more about the president addressing global warming and the world perceiving the U.S. as being the evil empire of industry. It has nothing to do with peace. I haven't seen anyone dropping there weapons or cutting back on nuclear technology. If anything, hate has been accelerated. Talk is cheap and so is this award.

  • JayNY - 10 years ago

    I believe this was rigged. By giving him Nobel, they(world community) has tied his hands with military option when it comes to middle-east. He will not defend Israel and you can just see Iran attacking Israel. Obama will stay on the sideline and see the second holocaust occur. He will not come to Israel's aid.

  • Ashley Tisdale - 10 years ago

    Congrats Mr Obama. You deserves this Nobel Peace Price. God wants you to be honoured. Only true man can win this Nobel Peace Price. A man who want peace surely peace will attain him.

  • jim gibson - 10 years ago

    Now he can spent his Nobel prize on his motherloving brothers from ACORN

  • irshad - 10 years ago

    "YES WE CAN" Obama merits this Nobel Peace Price. He deserves it. All those who say that obama does not merit this nobel peace price surely he or she must be a big fool. Otherwise take the place of Obama. IF "YOU CAN" of course.

  • Keyser Sozay - 10 years ago

    This just in........Obamuh wins "Rookie of the Year". What a joke!

  • Ariel R. - 10 years ago

    He won the nobel after following Bush's horrible world policies. The way Bush handled world diplomacy Mussolini could've won the peace prize following him.

  • Whattaworld - 10 years ago

    'Tween 2007 and 2009, the worth of the Nobel has dropped faster than the dollar.
