Obama became the US President – Americans Recognized him.
Obama won the Nobel – The World has Recognized him.
Obama you are Just on of the Greatest Men born on Earth.
Obama, God Bless you.
Everything that President Obama does is never good enough for the Republicans? The award is well deserved and I am proud of our president, he has changed the way the world looks at America.
How many millions did this cost the American tax payer? Because we all know Obama didn't earn this. He surely doesn't deserve it!!!!!
One more embarassment for America! Just the other day it was reported how much the World hates thisPresident. Now all of a sudden the World loves him. BS! Someone bought this and with our money!
I can not stop smiling. Obama is a peace lover and deserves the award.
Rollin, knowing that you are GOP hack, do you really think that the vast majority of Americans are listening to you? Your 20% who will admit to being Republicans will, of course. But those who are Democrats and those of us who are moderate and Independents view this as an affirmation by the world that the US reputation is being restored.
As for "earning the honor", everything he does, he does to try and help this country. It is within your right to disagree with his methods, but the man, Barack Obama, is doing what he feels as right. He is calling for the use of diplomacy rather than force to resolve conflicts - exactly what Wilson, Roosevelt, and Carter won the Peace Prize for, themselves. And what the world WANTS to hear from the leader of the nation with the largest stash of nuclear weaponry is that conflict is the last resort.
Some day, you will say something complimentary about our President; if you can ever get past the party rhetoric and bull pookey that your party espouses.
The best thing for Peace and getting America back to being a great country would be the elimination of the Republican party of NO.
Earn it? He already has, thats why he was awarded the prize. Just like any prize, the finish line must be crossed first. That doesnt mean you stop racing and continue to train. But I hat the republicans constant down play of this man
Yes, Ed...tell us something that we don't know!!!!
geesh...get the stick out and just enjoy the moment....
Exactly. Effort does not equate to results. Of corse, the DNC will now label you a terrorist if you think that. What a joke!
If you have a problem with an american, or an american president regardless of what party you belong to, then you really need to step away from the political table and remember what it is to be a human being and an american again.
Go to hell.
Just for putting up with the GOP (a.k.a. KKK), tea party nuts, Glenn Beck, Hannity, Rush, Lou Dobbs, Billo the clown and the like makes him MORE than worthy of the Nobel Peace Price in my opinion. How he managed to keep a calm and cool head in the mist of all the craziness and racial remarks about him and his family is beyond me. So, it doesn't matter whether you think he deserves it or not, the point is, HE GOT IT!
Ed's ed izup iz azz, az usual.
Obama was nominated for the award before he was even president. So, how exactly did he earn the award? Could the award have been given as incentive/bribe to change current US foreign policy to be in line more with what the international community wants? Just a thought.
That said, good for him. Hurray.
rollins is no fan of the President so for him to say what he has said is ridiculous. rollins is a hater and they're just jealous of the success of President Obama
I see Al-Queda's spokesmen are putting out statements now. How are these people getting past airport security to get in the CNN Newsroom?
Obama has earn this award and he deserves a lot others because he's the third President in the history of America to speak out for the common people of other cultures in America.
In other news...the Bears win the Super Bowl!
Well...they're probably going to win, so we gave it to 'em now. Hopefully they will earn it......GO BEARS!
Hey if Obama doesn't earn it does he have to give it back?
Hmmm... I'm of two minds on this. On the one hand, I definitely think the international community is recognizing Obama's efforts to bring about positive change, not just for the U.S. but also for the world at large. On the other hand, given the fact that he's only begun to make these attempts and most of them have yet to see completion, it can seem to be premature. However, given that we're not seeing many other major figures on the world stage attempting to make the kind of impact that Obama is (yes, I'm sure you've all got your other candidates you'd nominate, but let's be honest... there's no one else garnering this kind of international attention and support right now), as much as it may be a premature decision to award Obama with this prize, I'll have to side with those who wish to congratulate him, only because to knock him down for receiving it is to knock down what he's trying to do. Maybe he still has a long way to go, but better to reward him for choosing this path than not recognizing it at all.
If Obama does nothing else ,he will have given many people
hope , peace , love and that no matter how negative people
are and how evil they are all will come together for good if
we just trust and have faith ,work toward doing whats just and, righteous
Another SNL parrot heard from ... blah blah SWAK . Polly wants some dog dung.
OH.. .. here we go.. now he's back tracking..... shame on you.
I hope he gets again next year for the sake of all us. I hope that the things he wants for peace becomes a reality.
I disagree, he doesn't need to earn it because it was given to him to promote what he stands for. He also didn't ask for it, therefore–what does he need to earn? President Obama needs to continue with his plans and that's it. All the critics on both sides can continue to whine and moan and groan. Who needs them?
