    What has the Bamster done to deserve the Nobel Prize? Nothing. Obama has never endured suffering for his views. He's always been rewarded for being a leftist by other leftists.

    I did not realize you were on the Nobel committee. Its their prize and they award it as they see fit. You can do the same with your own prize.

    But the fact of the matter is they (the Nobel committee) did diminish the weight/credibility of the award when they bestowed it on Obama. At some future date he (Obama) may have performed deed or deeds that merit a peace prize. But at the time he was given the award he had done nothing to deserve it.

    Suspect this is part of the reason his words (Obama's) are now being parsed/scrutinized a bit...

    You appear not to actually know what "hypocrite" means, being that I'm not the OP.

    But have a good cry, if this is what you're resorting to.

    Bush: "I'm the decider and I decide what is best..."

    I'm the decider.
    I pick and I choose.
    I pick among whats.
    And choose among whos.

    And as I decide
    Each particular day
    The things I decide on
    All turn out that way.

    I decided on Freedom
    For all of Iraq.
    And now that we have it,
    I'm not looking back.

    I decided on tax cuts
    That just help the wealthy.
    And Medicare changes
    That aren't really healthy.

    And parklands and wetlands
    Who needs all that stuff?
    I decided that none
    Would be more than enough!

    I decided that schools
    All in all are the best
    The less that they teach
    And the more that they test.

    I decided those wages
    You need to get by
    Are much better spent
    On some CEO guy.

    I decided your Wade
    Which was versing your Roe
    Is terribly awful
    And just has to go.

    I decided that levees
    Are not really needed.
    Now when hurricanes come
    They can come unimpeded.

    That old Constitution?
    Well, I have decided
    As"just goddam paper"
    It should be derided.

    I've decided gay marriage
    Is icky and weird.
    Above all other things,
    It's the one to be feared.

    And Cheney and Rummy
    And Condi all know
    That I'm the Decider -
    They tell me it's so.

    I'm the Decider
    So watch what you say
    Or I may decide
    To have you whisked away.

    Or I'll tap your phones.
    Your e-mail I'll read.
    `cause I'm the Decider -
    Like Jesus decreed.

    Yes, I'm the Decider
    The finest alive
    And I'm nuking Iran.
    Now watch this drive!

    Exactly, thank you.

    I mean, I don't like hyperpartisan BS most of the time, from either side. I don't like Obama but I don't like seeing petty and meaningless criticism of the President over trivia.

    But, holy cow the HYPE there was over this man before he'd even entered office! The birds were going to sing a new song, peace was going to break out all over, the troops were all going to be home in six months, Gitmo would close instantly, etc etc.

    Somebody has to be a bit embarassed now...

    Somebody is not making any sense. Feigned outrage at what? A simple google search will show you that you posted a lame attack thread which took an excerpt out of context. That's not feigned outrage. It's you acting like the interwebz couldn't have debunked your thread and getting called on it. Grow up?

    The only issue with your retort, is, I am not outraged at all... Merry Christmas my friend.

    The mental gymnastics required to make this sound arrogant is amazing. Conservatives really can take anything the man does and convince themselves it's bad somehow. Obama hugs a kitten... WHY DOES OBAMA HATE PUPPIES!? MAN'S BEST FRIEND, OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! WHY IS HE HUGGING A KITTEN INSTEAD OF FIXING THE ECONOMY HUH?
