It is also quite risky. With the mess the Obamateur is making of international policies, his reckless empowerment and appeasement of pretty much every thug-politician and rogue state on the planet, there are by now some serious and growing risks that he may actually corner himself into engaging the U.S. in all sorts of devastating conflicts before his term is thankfully over.
The joke would then be on the Norwegian nutcases — But then again, these guys did give their prize to Arafat.
So they must have some kind of a sense of humor, I suppose.
Hey, where's all the stuff?
I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.
As of February 28, 2020, only basic blogging is implemented.
Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...
So all the stuff is coming back?
Yes, thank you for your patience.
Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
He joins in the company of Arafat, Gore and Carter.. I’m sure this is what Alfred Nobel intended the Peace prize to become.. Not.. Based on his supposed accomplishments and they are already trying to give him the 2012 election.. why not wait till 2012 or 2016? Ohh yeah, based on the calendar that the Mayan’s problaby just got tired of extending out or got wiped out before they could finish, some think the world will end in 2012..
That whirring sound you’re hearing is Alfred spinning in his grave. Too bad he can’t send a big batch of his inventions to the idiots in Oslo…
So who is next? Je$$e Jackson and Al $harpton? Hugo Chavez? Fidel? Amindeedajerk? Kim Jong Mentally Il? Maybe they can have a new posthumous recognition category and they can give awards to Idi Amin, Stalin and Mao.
It would be funny if it wasn’t so ridiculous. Gore, Carter, Obama. The formerly “prestigious” Nobel Peace Prize is now just so much fluff for grandiose self-labelling liberals.
I had the strange experience this summer of being on Cape Cod during the Kennedy funeral. I didn’t go for it of course, I just happened to be there when it happened. Anyway, I saw the presidential helicopter (or at least I think it was - it had the presidential seal) and was so excited until I realized even if the president was on board it was only Obama. What a bummer. I like to think maybe at least it was the same heli Bush rode in, then I could feel respect.
Frogman, I just can’t get over how you have such a firm grasp of the U.S. political scene. But then, you are conservative. You have more persistence than I do. I gave up on my grandfather’s parents’ home, Canada, well over a few years ago.
I find it most distressing that our former allies are being, well… shat upon and our enemies are viewing the (p)resident as a wuss. For this he gets a peace prize? The man has done absolutely nothing noteworthy, other than pull the scales over the eyes of so many gullible (or stupid) people!
When I awoke to this news on Friday, I was visiting friends in California. I could not believe what I was hearing. This after spending the day at the Reagan Library in the Simi Valley was simply disgusting! Dear heavens I miss Ronnie. *sigh*
Obama’s attempt to socialize our nation is going to drive our nation to bloodshed.
