    I bet he is thrilled. It just adds to the lack of seriousness the prize stands for these days. You have to liberal or anti-bush to get it and they both along with Carter qualified. Ten days of work as President got it for Obama. Major joke.

    We're watching the juvenile actions of the GOP, and (as an independent actively involved with others in this country) the GOP will lose even more in the future.

    We need adults that work together for our country, not a bunch of spoiled egotistical brats.

    Al Gore got his Nobel for un-proven global warming which is funny since the temperature of the earth has been steady for 10 years and may have slightly gone down as stated by the UN scientist that started the Global Warming theory. All these Nobels for Gore, Obama, and Carter were awarded as anti-Bush Nobels.

    Another liberal fraud heard from. Lying Al Gore, congratulating Lying Hussein Obama. Both have sold this country out and should actually be standing trial as traitors.

    So President Obama joins Mother Teresa and Desmond Tutu as Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. He also joins Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and Woodrow Wilson. Republicans should not feel bad though. One Republican has also won that distinguished prize: Theodore Roosevelt in 1906.

    I wish good old Teddy was still alive so he could fix the modern Republican Party

    Of course he's thrilled. Now he's off the hook for being the most undeserved winner.

    This is a good laugh. A non deserver like owl gore praising another non deserver. chavez would have been an equal choice maybe it was a tie and they gave it to nobama this year and chavez next year.

    Please explain Mr. Gore just what exactly did Obama do in his first ten days of Presidency to deserve to be nominated. Then explain what he accomplished, not just talking points read from a teleprompter, during the next nine months to deserve the prize.

    All of these Profit-Driven men who would try to fool us into compliance with further Profiteering by these United States and Other Capitalists need to Divest of this system if these want me to believe that their acts arise from their personal ethics/integrity at all. Violence Begets Violence and we continue to DO violence on our home and her peoples. By any measure, this is immoral, unethical, and unjust-hardly anywhere near the Con Job that we are a just democracy of human rights or Equality. Show me, Mr. Gore who you really are. Peace

    Very classy Mr. Gore. Your Nobel was well desrved as well.

    Gore shouldn't have gotten Nobel. He won because of the political correctness of his cause. There were much better candidates.

    Sour Grapes, sour grapes, sour grapes!!! The response by the Republicans is shameless, disheartening and certainly transparent .
    It dispirits the soul. They've been advocating for an end to the war,
    now Rollens says somehow getting the Nobel Peace Price will compromise Obama job as Commander and Chief. They need to just stop talking, stop talking, stop talking. but obviously having your foot in your mouth doesn't even slow them down. Shame on them.
