i can't believe obama won the nobel peace prize. seriously? for something that he hasn't even accomplished yet? i guess just because I've STARTED college must mean they should give me my diploma now, ya know, because I'll finish eventually.

  • They lauded the change in global mood wrought by Obama's calls for peace and cooperation, and praised his pledges to reduce the world stock of nuclear arms, ease U.S. conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthen its role in combating climate change.

    "Some people say - and I understand it - 'Isn't it premature? Too early?' Well, I'd say then that it could be too late to respond three years from now," Thorbjoern Jagland, chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, told the AP. "It is now that we have the opportunity to respond - all of us."

    Jagland said the committee whittled down a record pool of 205 nominations and had "several candidates until the last minute," but it became more obvious that "we couldn't get around these deep changes that are taking place" under Obama.

  • The nobel peace prize committee is a set of 5 Norwegians, and throughout the history of the prize there have been some real deserving people, and also plenty that would make you go "huh?"

    they've been known to have an extremely heavy bias for all things left wing when it comes to political prizes, I just didn't know the bias went this far.

    Nuclear disarmament is a left wing ideal? You may want to look up Ronald Reagan and disarmament. Maybe you were referring to Peace.....Guilty, we want peace

    Yep like Hitler! 1939...I can see why they revoked it and claim they didn't award a prize in 1939 yet they have a nomination list for 1939. lol

    The same will happen with Obama, they will say they didn't give one in 2009 in 70 years!

  • My statement about their bias for the left wing is simply based on the numbers of who has gotten the prize, and what party they belonged to.
