    Before all the parties begin..... the nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize close on a date that fell about 2 weeks after O's presidency began. Did he accomplish numerous and sweeping note worthy peace initiatives in that 2 weeks? The prize and it's selection committee has now thrown any credibility it had out the window in exchange for O's "change".

    The fool was nominated 2 weeks after he took the oath. What this has done is make a joke out of the Nobel Peace Prize. The man had not done anything at the time of nominations to earn the prize. I don't think he has done anything to date, but that is another matter.

    I am sure it is already in the works and they don't even have to run to win, they will just be mailing it to the WH

    I was listening to Fox and Friends this morning (My Morning News Place) while I was brushing my teeth....not only did I swallow my toothpaste, but the brush almost went with it.... I can not be a lady, a but down my thoughts on this ill-gotten prize.

    "Even Barack Obama's fan club on NBC's Today were stunned at the President's winning of the Nobel Peace Prize. Co-host Matt Lauer found it baffling: "We're less than a year into the first term of this president and there are no - I'm not trying to be, you know, rude here - no major foreign policy achievements, to date." In their barely seven minutes of coverage on Today, NBC also repeated three times the White House talking point that Obama was "humbled" by the award."

    Wow, if NBC News gets it......

    If you guys will click on the link I posted on the 1st page, the committees comments are based solely on the messiah's 'vision' of a nuke free world. No achievements, just a vision.

    Hell, one time I had a dream that my leg was blown off in combat. Shouldn't I be getting a purple heart in the mail soon?

    You are right, he has not done anything to date yet the right on this board has done a lot of criticizing.
