The Nobel Peace Prize!
My first thoughts upon hearing Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize: 1) Hahahahahahahaha!!!! 2) peeps at the Onion had managed to fool everyone, or 3) we had been thrown back to April 1st in a time machine, or 4) everyone on the Nobel Peace Prize Committee is on crack. 5) How can I get that crack?
Then, I found the answer–the new prize in the box of Cracker Jack is, that’s right, the Nobel Peace Prize! I have one now, too. In addition to the million or so dollars he’ll receive (perhaps he should he should donate that to the US Treasury) I bet he’ll get a Mood Ring with the prize. He can keep that for himself.
In other words, it’s now a meaningless joke. It really got that way when Jimmah Carter got it, but this take the cake.
But hey, if you laugh at Urkel getting the “prize” you’re now siding with terrorists, according to the DNC. Yes, it’s come to this.
John Bolton on Fox News, of course, the Peace Prize is now all about politics. It used to be about actual accomplishments. He thinks this was a philosophical decision, not a partisan decision. “Fundamentally a political message.” If you view the world the way the committee does they’ll give you a prize. Also notes this very well may impact Urkel’s view on whether or not to respect General McChrystal’s request for more troops in Afghanistan.
Obama has noted he will “accept this award as a call to action.” To his credit The Fool-in-Chief also seems to have the good sense to try to distance himself from the absurdity.
President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize is quickly turning from a singular honor into a gold-medal headache, as even supporters call it premature and critics say it proves he’s a darling of the international elite.
Obama himself sought to put some distance between himself and the award, saying, “I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but a recognition of the role of American leadership” in the world.
…seemingly mindful of the political risks involved, he seemed to go out of his way to puncture the solemnity of the moment, joking that it was also a good day because it’s his dog Bo’s birthday.
Make no mistake, this is an attempt by the Euro Elite (and we know what a great track record they have running the world) to directly impact the American president’s decision making, as well as hasten our demise as the world’s political and moral foundation. They know what they’re doing as they confirm Barack Obama as epitome of a Useful Idiot for the Left.
