The cutoff date for nominations for the nobel prise is Feb 1st. Obama was sworn into office January 20th and then nominated before Feb 1st? What has he accomplished now let alone in the First 11 days in office that makes him even a nominee for the NPP?

...and from the CNN front page....
Unlike his predecessors, Obama was chosen not for substantive accomplishments, but for inspiring "hope" at the start of his term.
Um...I inspire hope in my household every month - I hope we can pay the power bill - I hope we can pay the mortgage - I hope we can pay our taxes. So I work - a LOT - to make sure these things are taken care of.

Where is MY Nobel Peace Prize?

As big as the name "Nobel Peace Prize" is, in reality it's just a politically appointed committee in Oslo, Norway that awards this prize. To me, it's sort of like the fame of winning something from Publishers Clearing House. Doesn't say much, really, for who you are.

It's become pretty irrelevant as a "prize" - as it's just one country's tiny select group's opinion. There are zillions of those all over, just with not as big a name. So, putting it in perspective, it's kind of a meaningless award...

My 2 cents...
Wherever I go, there I am

Funny....but sad/true.

I just can't believe how silly it is he's won.....while he's been advised to send 45,000 more troops to Dirka Dirka...er Afghanistan.

...they also gave one to Al Gore for his global warming scam.

What a sick world...the guy who re-invents blasting caps and then dynamite and gets filthy rich ends up funding this crap....must be turning in his grave.

Rebulicans or just a group of sensible people that still believe you have to earn your keep.

I'm at the point now where I don't want to associate with any of those assholes in DC. I prefer to maintain common sense and decisions that make fiscal sense. There's a severe lack of that in our government these days - on BOTH sides of the aisle.
