The Man Who Brought Us Peace in Ten Days

This week's stunning announcement by the Nobel Prize Committee (NPC) they were awarding President Obama the Peace Prize left the Watchman as well as a few hundred million people totally baffled. What on earth were the members of the NPC thinking. Or maybe not. The announcement spoke glowingly of BHO's intent and desire to bring the world to peace. They listed his pronouncements as evidence of his yearning for a peaceful world where we all can live in harmony. Too, they mentioned his diplomatic skills that differed so much from the previous White House Tenant. But all the fancy words, still beg the question: What did Obama do, really, actually do to win this most covenanted award for leadership?

A little known factoid on this issue, is even more stunning than the announcement itself. The nominations for the Nobel Prizes were closed on February 1, 2009. In other words, in ten days as the leader of the most powerful nation in the world, the NPC selected Obama as the winner of the Peace Prize. TEN days! Other than winning elections, and being a 'ACORN Community Organizer', what has this man ever accomplished? Really? It appears the Norwegians must have been smoking something more than peat in their pipe to come up with this one. And who nominated Barack? That would be a great question to ask the NPC. So in just his first ten days as President, BHO, somehow by his messiah like abilities brought us to such a tremendous sense of peace he was awarded the Peace Prize. Let's hope Obama can actually bring peace to this wounded and pain racked war sometime in the next 1,450 days, or the Norwegians may yet rue their hasty decision.

    Just so ya know, some of us out there do read your blog, keep it up :) I was waiting for your response to this one. Personally, I'm happy Obama got the award just because the righties got their panties in a twist over it!

    I believe you almost answered your own question with your "little" known factoid.

    Defending their surprising decision, the committee chairman said they sought not just to reward the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, but to "enhance" the recipient's actions - to promote peace.

    Hmm, just something more to blog about promoting partiality..err...peace.

  2. Thanks for the comment back...nice to know someone is reading my rants.... I do wonder how the world will perceive this action over the long run of history. Could be the Nobel Committee's undoing should Obama turn out to appease our way into a nuclear war with Iran or Korea....
