    The Nobel Peace prize is pretty much a joke. If terrorists can win it, then there's no real value to the award. I don't understand why they think it MUST be awarded every year. If there are no qualified candidates (and I think this one, if being held to principle, would have the hardest time to fill), don't award it. But they hand the thing out like candy to whomever they like at the time. It's kinda like an international popularity contest.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I don't see the problem. He got the award for being a black socialist who hates the U.S. and he's still a black socialist who hates the U.S. He deserves to be ranked with Arafat, Begin, Carter, and many, many others.

    according to the Nobel committee...
    The Nobel Peace Prize 2009 - Press Release
    Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts.
    Current 'multilateral diplomacy' being used in Libya...

    I think if Obama was honest he would have refused it telling them he had done nothing to deserve it.

    That would take integrity though.
