It is fully understood that the liberal European countries love Obama.
It is very apparent when 12 days into his administration, some left wing, no spine, whining, socialist, can’t we all just get along, American hating, Ivy league flake…nominates Obama for the Nobel peace prize!
Then the ultimate disgrace comes when the committee actually votes to give him the prize when Obama has done nothing to deserve it. In fact, he has made America less safe in the few months he has been in office than any other President including Jimmy Carter. Even liberals are griping that he hasn't done enough to wind down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These are the same misfits that cheered as Obama releases the terrorists that were held by the Bush administration.
The jelly belly anti Regan, anti American cowards must have had a collective orgasm when Obama gave his speech on a nuclear free world and how his America would lead the way in achieving total disarmament.
Of course back here in the colonies, top Democrats congratulated Obama.
What has President Obama actually accomplished? The answer is nothing, nothing at all, but the liberals across the world are embracing him as their leader, their leader! Not an American leader but a Man they believe will be good for them, no one is asking, what is good for America.
At least Steele (the republican spokesman) said he thought it was "unfortunate that the president's star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights."
He said he doesn't think Obama will be "receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action." I think he is right, Americans may be waiting to see what is happening and that also seems to be a reflection on the dumb Americans (European view) as Obama’s approval rating maintains its steady decline into reality!
There was praise from two Democrats who also have won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Former President Jimmy Carter, who won in 2002, called Obama's selection a "bold statement of international support for his vision and commitment." And former Vice President Al Gore, who won two years ago, said Obama's prize was "extremely well deserved."
Obama has a lot in common with those two as he also does with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat who shared it in 1994.
Global Zero, comprising political and military leaders from around the world, applauded Obama's award, which was "in part based on his leadership to achieve the elimination of nuclear weapons."
Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who chairs the Democratic National Committee, called the award "an affirmation of the fact that the United States has returned to its long-standing role as a world leader."
Yep, disarm, rollover and adopt all of what our forefathers left behind for a new world, what they fought and died for, what America has held dear for over 200 years! Obama now gets an award for destroying America in his bid to be the next world leader!
I will give Obama credit for speaking one truth; Obama himself said he felt humbled and undeserving, declaring in a Rose Garden statement: "I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments."
This…Obama award appeared to be just a slap at former President George W. Bush from a committee that harshly criticized Bush for his military action in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
"People can read into it whatever they want," said former Bush spokesman Tony Fratto. "But when you're awarded a Nobel Peace Prize and the first question everyone asks is 'for what?' then you have to question what the motives of the Nobel committee are in making the award."
I am embarrassed by the way other countries are now manipulating my country…yep, I’m disgusted!
So, what do you think America?
