Politcally Incorrect Musings
Another meaningless award

It used to be that getting an Oscar meant something. Now they hand them out hand over fist for every little thing. It is meaningless and has become more of a popularity contest for Liberals than recognizing actual talent. Now the same has happened to the Nobel Peace Prize. Obama is the latest recipient.


Someone tell me ONE, just ONE thing that he has actually accomplished that deserves that award. All Obama has done has been TALK. There has been no action. No closing of Gitmo. No outbreak of peace in the Middle East. No end to the starvation in Africa.

What has he done? Destroy the US economy by creating unsustainable debt. Heck! If that is a qualifier for the Prize, then it should have gone to Bush. It was Bush who got the ball rolling with TARP.

I think it is safe to say that Obama looks great on the international stage because Bush was a *very* easy act to follow. The people giving the prize say that his reversal of the US direction on unilateralism was a huge factor.

The process for closing Gitmo is underway. One cannot close something like that overnight. It would be going faster if more solutions were available for the detainees. Tey can't simply be release into the public now.

But I agree - I think it's too soon in his presidency for a Peace Prize.

Trying not to sound like an Obama basher here, but he has done NOTHING to deserve this. And saying that they gave it to him to show an "early vote of confidence" is utter bullshite. That's like someone stepping up and saying they will end world hunger and showing a vanilla plan to do it, getting the prize, then killing off half the population of africa. Sure he ended hunger since no one is around to eat. His plan sounded good at the start. But the ending leaves much to be desired. Not saying Obama will kill off half of Africa, but giving someone such a prestigious prize because he has a plan to fix problems is just stupid.

No... you don't get it. They gave one to Yassir Arafat, too. Remember him? This is the "peaceful" guy that said, "Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations."

And now Obama gets one for...??? I am lost here. The award has lost its intent and is now just a way for anti-Semitics, Liberals, and like-minded Socialists to pat each other on the back.

dude... im kidding, lighten up... the world isnt ending and your point of view has valid points, relax... im poking fun at people who take this shit so seriously that they build bomb shelters in their yards whenever something they dont like happens... every pres since eisenhower has been a twit in some way, take the good with the bad, do for your family, and stop letting the bastards get you down.

You have a family your able to provide for, a home, nice things, and the freedom to be pissy... is it really all that bad considering that if history teaches anything its that the pendulum will eventually swing back so that the other view will be able to be pissed?

Your starting to sound like the radio hacks...

on BOTH sides

I know you are kidding, but it doesn't help. It was bullcrap. But, the problem is that people AREN'T taking this kind of thing seriously and it just keeps getting worse and worse. We, all of us, just keep letting junk like this slide. We blow it off.

Enough is enough.

The bastards are not getting me down: I am fighting them. I am standing up and speaking. I am writing my government. I am bringing things to people's attention.

Enough is enough.

Pendulum? It has been swinging to one side since Lincoln.
