Obama ruined the Nobel Peace Prize

I still can’t get over it – they gave the coveted Nobel Peace Prize to an American politician, based mostly on campaign speeches, which were indeed inspiring, but still, campaign speeches, filled with what were empty promises.

Aren’t all campaign speeches filled with empty promises? Yes they are. Don’t struggle with this.

Do you think the Nobel Prize Committee based their award on something more substantial? Why do you think this? Are you having trouble with dates? Obama had not been in office for 100 days. What had he done for world peace in that time?

Shortly after he received the highest award for peace, he ordered troops to Afghanistan.

Bullshit I say. Give the Nobel Peace Prize to anyone you want. It’s worthless now. Unless they decide to give it to Gandhi posthumously.

    Mandela got the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. He didn’t get it because John McCain chose the hopelessly ridiculous Sarah Palin as a running mate. The Nobel Peace Prize 1993 was awarded jointly to Nelson Mandela and Frederik Willem de Klerk “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”

    Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948) has become the strongest symbol of non-violence in the 20th century. It is widely held – in retrospect – that the Indian national leader should have been the very man to be selected for the Nobel Peace Prize. He was nominated several times, but was never awarded the prize.
