    How can any logical thinking person believe that the RNC is credible.
    Everything that President Obama does or achieves is received with a negative response.

    Democrats and the President should not worry about getting consensus on any issue especially the health reform bill.

    Democrats should do whatever is best for the country and what Americans are waiting for healthcare, the wars, the economy etc. I haven't heard one Republican politician that I can say I would trust. They have not shown themselves to be fair-minded and only seem to be mean-spirited. The entire world is watching and from where I am Republican look pretty sad. I am a Conservative and have voted most of my life for its principles but if I lived in the US I cannot say that there is anyone Republican that I would vote for.

To all the people that complain that Obama hasn't done enough.....of coarse he hasnt .....YET, I don't care who is in the white house, NO ONE can make ANY kind of impact if they first have to clean up the mess left behind by the WORST president in history...lets all get off our high horse for a little while and give the man a chance to do his job!

    Well Ed, the negative world view of America happened with your support. It was George Bush, Cheney, and "Rummy" Ed. President Obama is cleaning up your Republican global mess.

    a few things, here, mr. rollins

    first and formost ... you, mr rollins, have absolutely NO say in what the nobel prize committee does.

    second. many of your recent stances imply you have little or no interest in peace. and so, your expertise on the subject of peace is flawed at best.

    third. what makes you think President Obama hasn't earned it? he's worked for peace and the betterment of mankind far longer than he's been president.

    I'm sickened and disgusted by the republicans continuous nay-saying of everything. when will republicans stop being part of the problem and start being part of the solution?

    Obama needs to bring Peace to Afghanistan.
    Stretch out his hand to the Taliban and bring the War Machine home.
    Withdraw the troops from Iraq.
    Meet one to one with Ahmedinejad and kim Jong Il.
    Disarm the Palestinians and the Israelis.

    The Nobel Peace prize has just presented a solution to what he is presently required to make a decision on regarding Afghanistan.

    No more troop deployment.
    In fact.
    Bring the troops back home!

    It is unbelievable that Citizens in The United States Of America are disrespecting everything President Obama stands for. It is amazing to see how hateful some people really are in this age. We have to ask have we really evolved as a nation?or are we still experiencing residue of an unfortunate time in America's history. It is mindboggling to me that everything the president does or say there is always some criticism or debate about his actions. We have never as a nation been so critical of any president before. The Media is feedin into this nonesense because slime sells.There seems to be double standards here. I am really starting to understand WEB Du Bois theory of double consciouness. Will we ever really evolve as a nation and get past the racism.

    Yesterday he was saying the SNL show would destroy the President.
    Today, it is Obama has to earn the Nobel prize (no word of praise that
    he got it). Is this man a biased Republican or not! Why does CNN even bother with such biassed persons!

    I am Not surprised by the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, Fox News, and the likes of them, as their mottos continue to be more of the same old vitriole that they've continued to spew all along for President Bacack Obama.

    I am surprised however by the likes of some of the CNN, MSBNC correspondents, who for even a moment, cannot find it within themselves to demonstrate any amount of appreciation for this great honor of the Nobel Peace Prize that has been bestowed upon our President of the United States. It's as if they are obligated to question, denigrate, reduce, and even to seek justification as to why President Barack Obama does not deserve this honor. It begs to ask what has the world of American Journalism come to especially in light of the fact that it is primarily dominated by Anglo Saxons, and non- people of color. I am beginning to wonder, do we really subconciously or consciously have a race problem that runs rampant throughout the media and America? Wake Up America! Whether they think he deserves this honor or not is totally irrelevant. He is the recipient, and he is Definitely worthy of this honor. What message are we sending to our children, to the world, and most especially to our country? I am ashamed as an American by how President Obama has been treated by the American Media since having been elected President in January.
    Here we are only nine months into his Presidency, and the media continues to lead the charge with the expectation that all of our problems should be solved by now. How quickly they forget what he inherited coming in the door. Now it's 'Obama war, it's Obama's economy as if nine months should have been enough time to solve all of our problems. GIVE ME A BREAK!

    Hey Rollins, this is not a "poplularity contest" is it? It's not like Pres Obama nominated himself...it is not even decided by American Citizens is it you idiot! I'm surprised that FDR never won it considering all he did to get this country out of the Great Depression.

    A clear, direct message to Barak Husain Obama. The intelligent, sensible, reasonable minds in this world are on his side!!! Good Change is here, set it in place and make it stay!!

    Ed Rollins is the worst of the worst. No matter what the president would ever do, this guy would fault it. Ed Rollins mentality is bringing down this country.
    Perhaps if the had a Nobel prise for lying, starting wars, abusing the constitution, your boy George might stand a chance.

    Just because YOU say he needs to EARN IT, he will EARN IT!!! But YOU also feel that he does not DESERVE IT!!! So I am sure YOU will make sure he does not EARN IT even though YOU feel he now DESERVES IT!!

    CONCLUSION: YOU say it's not going to aid him in HEALTH CARE and other policies he is trying to get approved in congress so he will NEVER EARN IT in your eyes. YOU and the PARTY OF NO will NEVER agree with President Obama on any ISSUES so in your eyes, he will NEVER EARN the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE!!!

    So should we CARE about what you say???

    WHINE. Oh goodness do I feel sorry for people such as Rolling, Huckabee and others thumbing at the fact that President Obama has been awarded a Nobel Prize.

    I am very very proud that the United States have by far majority elected not only a leader og our great nation, but a world leader that is now recognized with the greatest honor.

    This was NOT awarded to President Obama after two weeks as President. Huckabee and others stating so: YOU LIE!

    🙂 (smiling, never-the-less, this is actually true)

    Nah, he does not need to earn it. After all what did Arafat, Carter and Gore do? it has become just another popularity contest and no longer relevant.
