The majority of Americans do not believe President Barack Obama deserved to win the Nobel Peace Prize (61%), but the public is split in its personal reaction to the announcement. Asked if they are “glad” Obama received the prize, 46% of Americans say yes and 47% say no. …
The USA Today/Gallup poll conducted about a week after the announcement did not ask Americans whether they believe that the award may ultimately be deserved, or whether it was appropriately given in anticipation of the potential of the Obama administration’s peace efforts. The central question simply asked whether Obama “deserved” the award, and found Americans by roughly a 2-to-1 margin saying no rather than yes.

The committee is very political. The EU needs the US to become more socialist. They are pushing the global government, global monetary system, and global economy. The EU was extatic when BO was elected because they know he is socialist. They will now be able to have the US in their corner and expand the socialist system. The members of the NPP committee are Europeans who believe just that. He got the NPP to benefit Europe, and he is such a narcissist that he had to accept the darn thing knowing he didn't do anything to deserve it. It is to be on past acts and not acts that may happen in the future.

I'm still reeling from the idea. Obama expanded the war in Afghanistan, bombed Pakistan, kept Bush's withdrawal schedule for Iraq, and kept and expanded the Patriot Act.
The Nobel Peace Prize was given for pretty words, but look at his actions. He did not deserve it.
