    Re: Nobel Committee asked to strip Obama of Peace Prize

    They should have him keep it. If they were idiotic enough to give him that award that quickly in the first place, they deserve to find out that the leader of the free world does not have the liberty to live by the motto "Yes We Can Change Politics!" that so impressed their naive souls.

    Did Arafat? If they don't strip him; there is no reason to do so to Obama.

    And yet it is important enough that we have umpteen threads commenting on it and world leaders lobbying over it.

    What makes this thread so stupid, and what makes so many of the comments really ridiculous is that the Nobel Prize committee is a private group. They can give the prize to whoever they want. They wanted to give the prize to Obama. I think it was silly, but they had every right to do it and I got no room to bitch. If I want a say in who gets a prize, I better start my own prize.

    I think if you look at the calligraphied diploma of Peace Prize he got from the Nobel Committee, you will see where it says "Peace" is actually a sticker. When you pull it off it says Anti-Bush.

    Of course they can give the prize to whoever they want. Like you said they are a private organization. But the moment they make their decisions public it opens themselves up for public scrutiny and all that implies. Just as they have a right to give the prize to whoever they want, we have the right to critisize who they give it to.

    There are lots of private organizations that are critisized. I'm sure that you have no problem critisizing some yourself. For example, wikileaks, planned parenthood, any other news media outlet. And many many more.

    So, an accomplished list of commi's, corrupt incompetents, general incompetents, terrorists, and dimwits have won it.

    Absolutely he should keep it. It was premature, but it seems they predicted he would fit right in.

    .
    Why are you against Mohamed ElBaradei? What if IAEA hadn't been suscefule of getting ride of Saddams WMD. Then the terrorist and insurgents would have had their hands on alot of WMD. Then they raided all the unguarded weapon storages after the USA invasion of Iraq.

    Re: Nobel Committee asked to strip Obama of Peace Prize

    Obama should not have received the Peace Prize. His award was an example of the bias of those on the committee. He had done nothing that merited it, and in their eyes the fact that he was a liberal and not president Bush was enough to give him the prize. However, I also do not believe that it should be revoked because he has started a military operation in Libya.
