The Nobel Peace Prize? For What?

By nominating Barack Obama for the Nobel Peace Prize just 12 short days into his presidency, the left-wing Nobel Committee was clearly projecting great Obama accomplishments which simply have not materialized. Not even close.

The only other explanation for the Committte’s having awarded the prize to Obama this morning is that its members too have been seduced by Obama’s glamor and soaring rhetoric, but, more importantly, by his promise to fundamentally transform America into a Euro-style basketcase more in line with insipid Norwegian socialist standards of excellence. And, unfortunately, that’s probably the case.

To Obama’s credit, however, during his speech this morning acknowledging and thanking the Committee for the honor, for the first time I can remember he sounded humble and actually said nice things about America. A silver lining afterall.

My only concern is that this ideologically motivated award of notoriously questionable value may do little more than encourage Obama’s appeasement as well as his globalist and socialist predilections.

Call me a poor sport or a blindly right-wing partisan hack, but this is a monumental farce. I'm actually chuckling as I write this. But, hey, in these perilous times we all need a sense of humor.

So, for what it's worth, congratulations, Mr. President........I guess.
