Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize? Come on.Can't they wait until something is actually accomplished? The prize isn't supposed to be given for ideas. And besides, as H says, isn't he fighting a war right now? I think it's just the committee's way of saying- we like the US president now. But although I have no real problem with Obama himself (apart from the wars), I do have a problem with this. So come on, committee. Next year give the award to someone who has really done something; don't just use it to make a political statement.
Lech Walsea said it well “So soon? Too early. He has no contribution so far.” Check out the video in the above link. Almost exactly what H and I have been saying in the last 10 minutes since we got the news.
(If he's this popular, why couldn't he get the Olympics in Chicago?)
