WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Barack Obama will donate the roughly $1.4 million award from his 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to charity, a White House spokesman said Friday.
He should conside the following causes
1. Rehabilitation of veterans coming back from Iraq.
2. Rehab of extreme climate change victims over the world – Floods. Fire , Tsunami, drought
3. NGOs who support healtcare for the poorest of the poor.
A NOBLE man indeed!
We are very fortunate to have him as our President. ( Scary to think the situation of this Nation and the world if it had been McCain/ Palin)
America is PROUD!
I am not a fan of the Prez, but I am pleased to hear that he is doing the right thing by donating this money.
That's my boy!
I knew he would even before it was announced he would. President Obama is that kind of person.
Because he is decent. We live in a world where basic human decency is prized. That's a wake up call to us all, last but not least the GOP.
good for you president, had it been these racists on the right they would have wanted more money.
I'm proud of him and our country. Our new foreign policy tone is being recognized. The right needs to start cooperating with him instead of hating everything he says and does.
The only good thing to his being awarded something he does not deserve.
we as a nation are proud of you president obama. and laud your donation to charity as a sign of your good character!
Now, that's a NOBEL jesture!!!! I personally think he deserved the award. Just look at all the effort he had with getting our country back on track. The International Community can clearly see his efforts but the Nutcases and Repus here in the USA refuse to give our President praise for his hard work.
I knew he would do that! A humanitarian through and through!
Why not give it away...he did nothing to earn it.
This is why I love our President so much and wish him well. He makes me humble, too.

Wait for it ... wait for it ... The Republicans have just complained about the Obama choice for his donation to charity. Just kidding!
I will withold judgement to see if He can earn the award, not just talk the talk
Donate it to your welfare health care bill.
all republicans should crash when they are driving and die soon so this country and world can be a better place,
Oh geez....I don't think he needs to donate it...it's fair and square..it's Yours......
Well, he'll have to pay income tax on the full amount of the income. And, if he gets his wish, he won't be able to deduct the charitable contribution. This will end up costing him big time in the end. It sucks to be rich, doesn't it Obama? Or did you forget that you are one of those evil, rich people that you preach against?
Joe Biden has given an average of $368 a year to charity over the last 10 years. Maybe Obama can give some in his name to help the guy out?
Ah but what charity ?? Watch out for the Republicans' whining and crying over that too.
Well that stinkin' varmit! How dare he win the greatest award offered to a single human and then donate it to charity. What in the world will us Repuglicans complain about now.
a good decision. this may be the first sign that the choice made by the Nobel committee is sound. the president has the opportunity to help so many, both here and elsewhere.
He should divide that money among the 50 states of America.
