Obama Gets Nobel Peace Prize

Posted by alhavakia on October 9, 2009

President Obama says he is ‘humbled’ and honored to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. When I first heard this news this morning, I was sure it was just a bad dream and I would wake up any second. Then I thought it was some type of joke and started surfing the internet. My TV must be possessed, so I can’t trust what I hear there. But my search produced dozens of results, all saying the same thing.

What baffles me the most is the fact that I can’t come up with one example of merit, that would earn Obama the Nobel Peace Prize. I mean, winning an award for ‘vision’ doesn’t quite cut the mustard with me. As to hope … well, I can only hope the United States survives the next 39 months. I must admit though, I have seen lots of ‘change’ in the United States. Not the positive change Obama promised, but the change America got in return for their dollars.

Following is the statement from the Norwegian Nobel Committee:

“The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

“Obama has as president created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.

“For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama’s appeal that “Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.”

END STATEMENT

OK, so Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman? Well, considering Obama spends his time globe trotting and talking [keyword], then talking some more – yea I can see that statement. But, therein lies (yes, I chose the right word) the problem – all talk. America needs and wants someone who knows how to do more than just talk. We need someone who can walk the walk. We need someone who can deliver something more than hype, cloaked by pretty words. Because once you get past all the fancy wrapping and ribbons – the box is empty.

One could almost imagine Obama as a needy rock star, looking to his fans for validation. He seems to have a need to be worshiped by the masses. And while Obama sings his tune of ‘great change’ I have yet to see anything great. Although, I have seen a number of amazing events brought forth by Obama and his team – but my amazement is one of disbelief!

GOD HAVE MERCY AND BLESS THESE UNITED STATES – That IS our salvation.
