Obama made the great sacrifice for Chicago or I mean the nation and failed!
Yea, that’s right, blame it on Rio, Rio de Janeiro that is. Oh well, they gave him the Nobel Peace Prize instead! Yep! They did it again! First Al Gore won this prestigious award over Irena Sendler. Ms. Sendler’s efforts during World War II in saving the lives of over 2,500 Jewish children from the Nazi Death Camps apparently paled to Mr. Gore’s theories on global warming.
Now President Obama has won the prize for all his accomplishments during his first two weeks in office. That’s right, the nomination process ended 2 weeks after he was inaugurated into his history making presidency. WOW!
That must have been a really busy two weeks! Here is a list of all of those Noble Prize Winning accomplishments.
Oh well, I can’t think of any right now, but I’m sure there was something! It is very clear to average thinking people that the Nobel Peace Prize is now being awarded to the most popular nominee. The value of the accomplishments of the candidate to society is being swept aside. Even NBC’s Saturday Night Live is scratching their heads and asking what has he done? Bill O’Reilly recently said in one of his Talking Points Memos “some are very agitated that President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Critics rightfully point out that President Obama hasn’t done anything concrete to bring peace to the world.
The Nobel people say it was Obama’s mostly pre-presidential rhetoric that got him the award.” Mr. O’Reilly went on the say, “Professor Marc Lamont Hill, normally a staunch supporter of President Obama, declared his extreme displeasure with the Nobel committee’s decision. “I was stunned,” Hill said. “I’m a traditionalist when it comes to these things, and I assume that someone who wins the Nobel Peace Prize would bring about peace. But after prosecuting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with people unsafe in Israel and Palestine, and with people dying on the streets of Chicago, he wins the Peace Prize!
It’s mind-boggling to me, I’m shocked and disappointed, and this shows that the Nobel board is all about politics.” Hill added that the prize should have gone to “people who are waging anti-war efforts rather than prosecuting wars,” while The Factor named General David Petraeus as a better choice than President Obama.
The question many of the folks are asking now is “When will the rhetoric stop?” As a nation, I believe we have quickly discovered that Mr. Obama is a great politician and dynamic public speaker, but he is no leader.
The next question is how are we going to survive three more years of this rhetoric and lack of leadership? Years ago we would have relied on Congress to help keep us on the right path, but our leaders in today’s Congress are worse than our commander and chief.
Yes, we are in a fine mess right now, but we are the ones that can get us out of this mess. Many are now seeing that we were lead down the primrose path or to put it bluntly, we were lied too. Please continue to stay in contact with our nations elected officials. We must not just set back and allow the present administration just flush our children’s futures down the toilet.
We are not a progressive socialist country, but a “free Republic” with leaders who are elected by the people. We must remind our elected officials that they work for us; the people and we hire and fire each and every election.
May God bless…
