Nobel Prize is Worthless Now

Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!
Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!

Apparently this was all that was in the heads of the Nobel Committee when they made their selection for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize recipient. In choosing Barack Obama as this years recipient, the Nobel Committee has now devalued the Nobel Prize to the point that it means absolutely nothing. Even the Nobel committee's citation is nothing less than an admission that Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, was awarded the prize not on the basis actual accomplishments, but rather, on the prospect that he would achieve laudable accomplishments. Yes, that's right; 'hope and change'.

President Obama beat out a record number of nominees, 205 to be exact, many of whom had actual achievements to their credit. Among the top contenders are two individuals who have actually put their very lives on the line, Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and Chinese dissident Hu Jia. Regardless of how you feel about the contribution offered by either of these two individuals, at least you can say that they have done something. What has Obama done? With so many, much more worthy contenders in the mix, it makes the awarding of the prize to Obama seem extremely suspicious, and many are naturally asking, why Obama? Is it intended as a consolation prize for the Olympic Committee debacle? Is it a bribe to prevent Obama from taking action in against Iran? Is it meant simply to encourage Obama to continue his current totalitarian course in America? Or, is it something even more obscene, something comparable to affirmative action?

Regardless of what the motivation of the Nobel committee really was, Obama does not deserve this award, and he knows it.

"I am both surprised and deeply humbled."

"I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments. But rather as an affirmation of American leadership. ... I will accept this award as a call to action."

Obama ought to be both embarrassed and insulted. A better man would refuse it. But not Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm. After all, the prize is more than an award, it comes with $1.4 million. Bling! Bling!

Next year's Nobel Peace Prize will be awarded to Osama Bin Laden, in absentia, for promoting peace.

The Peace Prize lost all of it's credibility when it awarded one to Al Gore.

I was shocked and all I could manage was a shrug of the shoulder, nothing surprises me anymore.

I think the question of credibility of this 'prize' goes back further...look at the former presidents who received it: Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt...yikes. When Carter won it years ago...that truly buried it. Gore and now Obama only go to confirm the fact of incredibility...

I lost most of my respect for the Nobel Peace prize back in 1994 when Yasser Arafat won it; after having spent decades promoting terrorism.

We had a discussion latetly here in Norway wether it should be possible to withdraw a Nobel Prize award - especially Arafat brought up the discussion.

I think it should be possible to withdraw it, even if a person does great deeds one moment he will be able to do the opposite later. But Nobel Prize winners will be in our history books forever, for doing something good. It kind of forges the history.

The weight of the Nobel Prize isn't the same as before.
