Obama Wins Nobel Prize!?!? What!?!?

This will do wonders for his ego.  I’m sure he’ll become far more humble.

I’m just trying to figure out what exactly he’s accomplished to merit this honor.

(Right now, I’m kind of speechless, but expect to update this over the course of the next hour, perhaps with quotes from other blogs.)

  1. This just in…

    Michelle Obama wins the 2010 Mrs. USA pagent for what she will be wearing.

  2. Well, at least he’s in the same company as the likes of Jimmy Carter and Yasser Arafat. So, in that case, he most certainly deserved it!

    Comment by LesbianNeoCon — October 9, 2009 @ 12:15 pm - October 9, 2009

  3. Glenn Beck kept breaking in this morning to say that Obama had won, among other awards, the Westminster Dog Show! Yup, beat out a cockapoo and a pomerianian. Also, he was simulateously awarded the Grammy for Best Female Latin Corossover Artist AND the Oscar for Best Picture!

    LOL! How does he do it?!?

    Best wishes,

  4. And if he’s so “humbled” by it, then he should refuse it, knowing full well it’s a joke that he received it in the first place. “Humbled” my a$$. He’s a malignant narcissist, soaking up every and any accolade he can – deserved or not. So far, all he deserves is helping to destroy this country from the inside out.

  5. Do you really think he’ll surge in Afghanistan now?

    I think this was nothing but an attempt by the international community to influence American foreign policy. I’m sure it will work perfectly.

  6. I’ve been calling it the Arafat Award for some time now.

    Comment by David Ross — October 9, 2009 @ 12:32 pm - October 9, 2009

  7. I really think its time to change the name of this prize since its obviously not awarded for work towards Peace anymore. How about:

    Nobel Left Wing Superstar Award
    Nobel People Who Are Not George W Bush Award
    Nobel Lefties Only Club Award
    Nobel Jump The Shark Award
    Nobel Soft Racism of Lowered Expectations Award
    Nobel We Hate Conservatives Club Award
    Nobel Unintentional Joke Award

    How about it?

    Comment by Dark Eden — October 9, 2009 @ 12:42 pm - October 9, 2009

  8. This is great because it makes the meaninglessness of the NPP dramatically evident. It cheapens every other NPP given to Left figurines. Plus, it inflates Obama’s ego, which means he won’t be doing any soul-searching anytime soon and so won’t be improving his policies.

    I’m thinking here of the entertainment value of Obama’s presidency. It’s questionable if America will survive Obama, like Jimmuh Carter before him, and I feel bad about that. But, that aside, the entertainment value of His presidency will be off the charts, before it’s over.

  9. Hahahahahahah!

    Its really just the “Not a warmongering, torturing neocon, thank god!” award.

    And, sour grapes taste sour?

    Comment by William — October 9, 2009 @ 1:12 pm - October 9, 2009

  10. Even William admits he didn’t do anything to earn a ‘Peace prize’

    I do think it should be called the Nobel Tyrany prize.
    Fail to support a constitutional government (Honduras)? Check.
    Fail to support democratic protesters (Iran)? Check.
    Admit that ‘human rights don’t matter’ (China)? Check.
    Defund and abandon organizations dedicated to reporting human rights abuses (Iran)? Check.

  11. I was stunned to see this as well. I do not agree with the awards being given to Al Gore or Jimmy Carter, but at least both of them had records to base their awards upon – NOT just 10 friggin’ days in office before being handed this. What’s next? Do we crown him king? No wait! Messiah! Ooh yeah, baby!

    Ridiculous.

    Comment by nolabill — October 9, 2009 @ 2:08 pm - October 9, 2009

  17. I guess Obama’s WorldApologyTour worked on the international Left… who’d have thought other countries would cheer our leader if he’d only renounce America, renounce the gains we’ve made in the last 8 yrs and apologize to Muslims and Arabs for expecting them to do more to muzzle their in-bred terrorists?

    The Nobel Committee was able to do what al Qaeda has been trying to do for years… get America to grovel in the dirt before the international community.

    For the Left and the Obama clan, this will truly mark the first time since slavery ended that they can be proud of America and one American’s accomplishment. Well, even if that accomplishment will be forthcoming at some point in the future… like the recovery, like the banks paying us back, like the homeowners making good on their govt-supported mortgages, like the Stimulus bringing down unemployment to 8% or lower, like Cash4Junkers saving GM, the environment, driving down gas prices, making America green.

    I can almost feel the Muslim community helping us root out terror cells here in America. Sorry, that was just gas.

    Comment by Michigan-Matt — October 9, 2009 @ 2:23 pm - October 9, 2009

  18. It’s disgusting…. As an American citizen I’m embarrassed, not honored. Yet again the Nobel Committee has lowered the bar on what ACTIONS constitute “peacemaking” in today’s sorry world. While Pres. Obama shows promise, to nominate an elected official with little-to-no foreign policy experience or stature just TWELVE DAYS after his inauguration is both premature and exceedingly shallow.

    And to cite Pres. Obama’s June 4th, 2009 Cairo speech when the nominations closed in February 2009 demonstrates that the Committee chose Pres. Obama without actual deeds-on-the-ground, and then wrote the citation to fit.

  20. Hi all. Yep, the 5 committee members that chose Obama must be so proud. I took a look at their website and it seems that anyone can nominate someone. They even said that they receive thousands of nominations every year. I say lets start now to make it a banner year for the next prize. If they receive thousands now let’s make it hundreds of thousands. Let’s make them Glenn Beck! Hey, the reject letter alone would be worth framing.

    Comment by scr_north — October 9, 2009 @ 3:09 pm - October 9, 2009

  21. I’VE done more for world peace than Obama!! At least Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house–which is more than Obama can say. I mean, if they’re going to snub Bush at least they could pick someone like Bill Clinton, who has, at least DONE things. Or if they really want to annoy Bush, give the award to Natalie Maines–she at least has some backbone.

    Comment by Ashpenaz — October 9, 2009 @ 3:18 pm - October 9, 2009

  22. Truly this is disgusting. A most embarassing moment for America. The apology tour sure did work wonders. However, we should have known because he is following in Carter’s footsteps. It is going to be hard to decide which one was worse.

    Comment by PatriotMom — October 9, 2009 @ 3:47 pm - October 9, 2009

  23. Congratulations to President Obama. It’s a well deserved award, albeit a surprising choice. IAEA Director General Elbaradei said it best, “he has done in nine months what many people would take a generation to do.” The president has handled winning the honor in an extremely humble manner and, naturally, will donate his $1.4m winnings to charity.

    I’m sad to say I wasn’t surprised by the reaction from the conservative minority. As the comments in this forum and elsewhere demonstrate, there’s so much envy of this man. The green is just oozing.

    He is president of the greatest country in the world. It is validation that we are indeed the best, most respected nation.

    I am very suprised at all of the hatred/mocking/disgust on many of the right wing sites.

    Why do you hate America?

    Comment by gillie — October 9, 2009 @ 4:36 pm - October 9, 2009

  29. um, so gillie, how come George W. Bush didn’t win it. Or Ronald Reagan. Or Bill Clinton?

    Please show how those criticizing the decision manifest a hatred from the US of A

    Comment by B. Daniel Blatt — October 9, 2009 @ 4:41 pm - October 9, 2009

  30. “Please show how those criticizing the decision manifest a hatred from the US of A”

    “Disgusting”
    “Shameful”
    “Stupid”
    “meaningless”

    All words used to describe this great event in American history. A sitting American president gets nominated then elected for one of the most prestigious prizes on the globe. And the right can’t take off its partisan glasses and see how good it is to have an American president respected by the rest of the world.

    Instead, all you folks do is hate.

    I sometimes wonder just what color the sky is in some of these peoples’ worlds…

    But then again, being a longtime Chicagoan, I’m beginning to wonder if we’re all now living in some Fellini-esque/Orwellian nightmare where we’re at war with Eurasia, and have NEVER been at war with Europa.

    However one chooses to categorize these days, yours truly is frankly sick to death of being accused of heresy by denying the divinity of the Risen Christ Obama.

    Oh you’re right on the money, gillie. Even the bible spoke of how Jesus was rejected by how own people, right? I’m deeply sorry for not recognizing His second coming 9 months ago. I promise I’ll try to be better.

  33. This is perfect. It demonstrates what a joke the left is. And the fact that they can’t be taken seriously. And we should demand that Obama donate the $1.4 Million prize to…………….
    THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT!!!
    A perfect rat hole to pour it down! hehe

    Comment by Gene in Pennsylvania — October 9, 2009 @ 5:14 pm - October 9, 2009

  34. #30….we don’t hate gillie. If you lefties can’t see the ridiculousness of this award, what does it make you guys. Even the liberal media was incredulous wondering how Obama was going to react considering he” hadn’t done anything to deserve it”. We don’t hate we still have a sense of humor and recognize folly and farce when we see it. Lighten up and admit the goofy award and it’s winner. Then ask our young President to please please accomplish SOMETHING worthwhile, that doesn’t involve the “feelings” and goodwill of people who don’t affect our lives.

    Comment by Gene in Pennsylvania — October 9, 2009 @ 5:18 pm - October 9, 2009

  35. btw how do you think the late night comedians are going to react to this. It was only last week that SNL decided it was finally time to start making fun of Obama. This will give them a few nights of fun at the expense of the chosen one.

    Comment by Gene in Pennsylvania — October 9, 2009 @ 5:27 pm - October 9, 2009

  36. Gene
    Of course! Disagree and have a little fun with it.
    That would be just fine.
    But the escalation of rhetoric over this award “disgusting” “embarrassing” etc, is not good fun humor or even disagreement.

    Its hate.
    And their hate has made them blind to America’s acomplishments.

    The laugh here is that neither Chairman Obama nor you actually believe that.

    Hell, Ronald Reagan did more to reduce nuclear weapons than Chumpy Obamalini.

    What? The conversion into a third-world country?

    Here’s an opportunity for you to put all of us in our place, ghillie.

    Show us the requirements for winning the prize and EXACTLY what Chairman Maobama has done to deserve it.

    Otherwise, you’re just a brain dead lemming that would jump off a cliff if the messiah told you it was for the “greater good”.

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — October 9, 2009 @ 6:02 pm - October 9, 2009

  39. Oh—-my—-gosh—-!!!! Just today, I bought a small package of kettle fried potato chips and the first chip I pulled out looked just like Obama —- big ears and all. THEN, I pulled out a second chip and it was clearly Al Gore after a hard day of global warming. The third chip was not anyone I recognized. But I showed it to a guy trying to hitch a ride at the gas station and he told me it was a dead ringer for gillie.

    I am on my way to mass and then I will put the chips on eBay. I will donate anything I earn over $1.4 million to the Save the Norwegians from Oxygen Deprivation Trustless Fund.

    Comment by thestraightaussie — October 9, 2009 @ 6:44 pm - October 9, 2009

  41. Yeah gillie, we’re “haters” just like liberals disgusted by this:

    George W. Bush launched a “preemptive” war. Now the Nobel Committee is trying for “preemptive” peace. I had always thought the way these things worked was that you helped bring peace or democracy to some corner of the globe first, and then you won the Nobel Prize. But this year, the Nobel Committee has turned that logic around: It clearly likes what Obama is trying to do: on nuclear disarmament, climate change and Middle East peace—and so, in a “preemptive” strike, it’s giving him the award now, in hopes that doing so will boost his chances of success later. It’s an interesting idea….

    I like Barack Obama as much as the next liberal, but this is a farce. He’s done nothing to deserve the prize. Sure, he’s given some lovely speeches and launched some initiatives—on Iran, Israeli-Palestinian peace, climate change and nuclear disarmament—that might, if he’s really lucky and really good, make the world a more safe, more just, more peaceful world. But there’s absolutely no way to know if he’ll succeed, and by giving him the Nobel Prize as a kind of “atta boy,” the Nobel Committee is actually just highlighting the gap that conservatives have long highlighted: between Obamamania as global hype and Obama’s actual accomplishments.

    Some of you have heard me talk about the left-wingers at work that I usually lunch with. I brought up Obama’s award today. They (the left-wingers) were aghast, saying it was a “ridiculous” award because “Obama should do something to deserve it first” and “Obama should turn it down.”

    So gillie, do they also hate America? LOL 🙂 The average CA left-winger can see, and admit out loud, what you cannot. Man, you are *way* out there.

    Comment by ILoveCapitalism — October 9, 2009 @ 7:03 pm - October 9, 2009

  44. Michael Russnow @ HuffPo has also “sinned”. He has expressed doubts about The One:

    Whatever one might feel about Obama, he has not earned this singular award. Few American presidents have received it and of those who have it was bestowed after they’d been engaged in something special…

    So, at the moment, I believe it is enormously premature for Obama to be getting this great tribute, which to a certain extent cheapens the prior recipients and the work all of them performed over so many years.

    It is traditional for Nobel honorees to be named a long time after their achievements in the sciences and literature. Indeed, the winners announced this week in other categories performed their amazing work and discoveries decades ago. Obama’s designation is akin to giving an Oscar to a young director for films we hope that he or she will produce or for a first-time published author getting a Pulitzer for a book he is destined to write some day.

    The time has not yet arrived and circumstances have not yet evolved where Barack Obama is anywhere near the point where he has earned this prize. I don’t blame him for this capricious action; it was the Nobel Peace Committee which committed the offense, which no doubt has Alfred Nobel thumping his head against his casket.

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — October 9, 2009 @ 7:08 pm - October 9, 2009

  46. OMG! The “haters” have infested even Pam’s House Blend:

    “So I turned on MSNBC to Morning Joe to follow the news. One of the first things I heard about this morning was President Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. I had the same thoughts as the hosts as the hosts even before they expressed their thoughts: 1.) What exactly has the President done to merit that award at this point in his Presidency?”

    “Can I pick mine up? I’m not George Bush either!!!”

    “This is very disappointing. Nominations for the Peace Prize closed on February 1, when Obama had been in office for only two weeks.
    Other winners of the Peace Prize were honored for work they had alredy done. After two weeks in office, what had Obama accomplished to merit such recognition? And in light of his refusal to remove troops and, in fact, his recent saber-rattling about Pakistan…. The Committee jumped the shark here, big time. They have politicized the Prize in a way that demeans past honorees and diminishes the accomplishments of future recipients.”

    “Though this phrase is tired and overused:
    In this case it applies: The Nobel Peace Prize has jumped the shark.”

    “the only thing more disgraceful than his nomination and ‘win’ is the fact he did not politely decline the nomination knowing he has not yet earned it.”

    “Since taking the oath, Obama has been a disappointment to the left and especially to LGBTs in many ways. I’m glad Obama has earned back some cred for the U.S. on the world stage, but at home, he’s a dud. I hope this doesn’t embolden him to make his ‘incremental steps’ speech at the HRC and actually feel good about it, instead of ashamed. Or continue to cave around a public option for health care reform. But the experience of the last 9 months has taught me not to hold my breath.”

    “The smart move by President Obama would be to thank the Nobel Committee and decline the award-saying he wants to actually acheive progress before being honored. That would be gracious, humble and smart politics (both domestic and international). My guess is he does not do that.”

  51. To the group, he was nominated for this award 12 days after assuming office. What else do we need to know? hehe
    I would like to see the list of those people he beat out for the award. Any true heros or states people? Gosh how must they feel. Independent Fox News is reporting there were nominees trying to forge peace in Africa, Iran, and China. Who put their lives on the line to try to end human suffering. How sad.
    BTW Obama saying he will donate the $1.4 Million to charity is worth watching. He and Michelle are known for donating to “charity” and it turns out their favorite is “The Black Caucus”. Not exactly the Red Cross or BOYS TOWN.

    Could you catch us all up on your opinions of Obama failing at the quest for the Chicago Olympics and embarassing moments in Copenhagen.
    Also what did you think of the latest jobs report…another 261,000 souls lost their jobs during the Obama depression. You guys don’t seem to be around most days when horrific news about this boobula administrtion breaks.

    Comment by Gene in Pennsylvania — October 9, 2009 @ 7:45 pm - October 9, 2009

  53. Gene, here are the losers:

    # Chinese Human Rights Activist Hu Jia – imprisoned for campaigning for human rights in the PRC, not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.
    # Wei Jingsheng, who spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China’s communist system. — not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama. (Not to mention the symbolic value of awarding a Chinese dissident on the 20th Anniversary of the Tianenmen Square Massacre.)
    # Greg Mortenson, founder of the Central Asia Institute has built nearly 80 schools, especially for girls, in remote areas of northern Pakistan and Afghanistan over the past 15 years – not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.
    # Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, a philosophy professor in Jordan who risks his life by advocating interfaith dialogue between Jews and Muslims, also not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.
    # Afghan human rights activist Sima Samar. She currently leads the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and serves as the U.N. special envoy to Darfur and is apparently also not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

  54. #53 Thank you John. Gosh that is so tragid it takes your breath away.
    If I’m a journalist and I have a chance to ask Obama a question, that’s how I frame it….
    Ask him specifically about those 5 names you mentioned, and if he thinks he deserved it more. If not, why didn’t he decline the award.
    That is so so sad.

  59. […] to my first post on the topic, one of our critics unintentionally nailed it, “Its really just the “Not a warmongering, torturing neocon, thank god!” award.”  The Nobel Committee honored him for not being George W. Bush. […]

  60. Hmmm…Has the nominating party come forward?

    $1 says by next week, the one responsible will reveal this really was a joke.

  61. To the group, he was nominated for this award 12 days after assuming office.

    No, the deadline was 12 days later. I think the nominating process started last October. I’ll guarandamntee you that he was nominated probably before he was even elected.

    Its really just the “Not a warmongering, torturing neocon, thank god!” award.

    Thank God we don’t have a “dirty Jew” in the WH, William?

    And yes, God is capitalized.

    No doubt waiting for the KOSholes to explain how this is even possible.

  64. #30: “And the right can’t take off its partisan glasses and see how good it is to have an American president respected by the rest of the world.”

    And the Left can’t take off its partisan glasses and see that Obama isn’t “respected” by “the rest of the world.” The “rest of the world” is just thrilled that through flattery alone, the current President of the United States can be controlled, dictated to, used, manipulated, and ultimately, ignored.

    Obama has recently gone on the record publicly condemning Iran’s subversive nuclear activities (whether he really cares about a “nuclear Iran” or not). How does Hugo Chavez forming an alliance with Iran to pursue Venezuela’s nuclear ambitions within 24 hours of Obama’s statements condemning Iran’s activities show “respect”? Oh yeah, Chavez gave a speech to the UN General Assembly calling Obama “an intelligent man” and comparing him to JFK. So, I guess if I could “take off my partisan glasses” I could see the value in a psychotic like Chavez saying nice things about our President, even while Chavez is colluding with Ahmadinejad to acquire nuclear weapons to hold the world hostage.

    Rush said it best on the morning it was announced that Obama had won–this isn’t about respect. It’s about Euro-elites making a peremptory strike on US sovereignty concerning matters of national (and global) security. The Nobel Committee has neutered Obama (as if they needed to) by turning him into a “man of peace.” What “man of peace” that is “respected” by “the rest of the world” could ever authorize military action against another nation (even if it were essential to protect American lives and/or avenge American deaths)? The Nobel Committee is just doing their part to ensure Obama’s continuing adherence to a foreign policy based on impotent multilateralism (appeasement).
