Nobel Peace Prize

I am a fan and a supporter of the President. That being said, can somebody please explain what he did to earn the Nobel Peace Prize?

I'm thinking he must have pooped a fricking rainbow when no one else was looking. Or something.

Re: The past influences the present
Agreed, he represents sanity and reason. But we're still in Iraq. Our children are still being killed in Afghanistan. I don't blame him. And I think that he'd rectify the debacle that the last administration left him.

But that being said, he's done nothing, so far, that merits this award.

What did he do? He won the election and changed the course of what was turning into a dangerously-fascistic, war-mongering country.
The prize is actually given for every person who finally got sick enough of the previous regime to vote the bums out!

Are we now rewarding ourselves for rectify problems that we caused in the first place? The Nobel Prize shouldn't be given for merely doing ones job. It should be for the extraordinary.

Did the Bush disaster really lower our standards that much?

anymore...

Yes, I agree. I think this actually "cheapens" the prize somewhat, even more than it already has been, but that seems to be the trend in the whole world these days. I was just talking to someone who said his daughter graduated from college with a 4.5 GPA... what?
I think the motto of this current Information Age should be "nothing means anything".
