No No No!!!

These honours are not offered every week. Take it Barack Obama with a smile on your face. You have richly earned this award.

Yes there will be some sour faces but what an improvement over the hapless George W Bush.

I think it would be disrespectful to decline recognition from this august body.

Jealousy will get nobody anywhere!

He hasn't done anything except talk rhetoric and yet more rhetoric. Much of it two faced hypocrisy and appalling hyperbole!

Being the Captain at the Helm of the SS Ship of Fools he doesn't deserve it.

Al Gore didn't deserve his one either for that matter.

Typical OWG/NWO Cronyism. That's what the majority of Nobel Peace prizes are anyway!

Communication and advocacy are a huge part of the role of being a president. What exactly did you want him to "do"?

As prime minister, you did not see Winston Churchill on the front line at El Alamein!

Gore and Obama have served their countries very well.

And Obama is no pushover - he is a no-nonsense operator as well.

There is always resentment when a star emerges as quickly as Obama did. In NZ it is called the tall poppy syndrome - something that is alive and well in this forum!

I suppose you think John McCain and Sarah Palin should be in the roles of Obama and Biden do you Acid? Surely not! Palin has given up Alaska as a bad job.

I think the Nobel Prize is an honor for the President, he was very gracious about accepting it.

This decision has put the final nail in the coffin of the sad joke that Nobel has become...

The Vatican, representing about half of the world's Christians, has offered congratulations!

' Vatican appreciates Obama receiving Nobel Peace Prize

Vatican City, Oct 9, 2009 / 12:59 pm (CNA).- The Vatican offered its appreciation today for President Barack Obama’s work for peace on the international level, following the announcement that the president the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi told L’Osservatore Romano that President Obama’s reception of the award “is greeted with appreciation by the Vatican” due to his efforts “to promote peace in the international arena, particularly in the recent effort in favor of the nuclear disarmament."

Fr. Lombardi also said that he hopes that the honor “may generate the expected results for the future of humanity.”

Reacting to the award, President Obama stated that it isn’t necessarily “a recognition of my own accomplishments,” but rather a “call for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century.”

Fox News reported that the award committee chose the President due to his work to reduce nuclear weapons, his commitment to easing tensions with the Middle East and his dedication to cooperation.

The chairman of the Norwegian committee charged with choosing the peace prize recipient, Thorbjoern Jagland, said that although the president’s initiatives have yet to bear fruit, “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.”

In his statement today, the president also said he does not feel that he deserves “to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize.”

Previous winners of the award include Mother Teresa, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Theodore Roosevelt, Elie Wiesel and Jimmy Carter. '

Giving Obama such august recognition, at this time, is certainly premature. The committee in making the award has, in my opinion, trivialized the Nobel. Let us see the man run the race before issuing accolades.

peter

Come off it Dell, the Nobel prizes have been awarded in strange ways in the past, involving more than one politician, and even from the Middle East hot spot itself.

The Nobel Prize will continue to be highly esteemed, through force of its distinguished history.

fletch

The Nobel has just been turned into more of a joke. It's really sad; all it takes is for the award to be trivialized like it has been and it lessens the honor of the people to whom it has been given who actually do deserve it - I feel sad for them.

It's like when the U.N awarded Helen Clark the 'Champion of the Earth' award. That prize is worthless now, as well.

Here is a link that shows that the award to Barack Obama has met with the approval of the Vatican!

Contrary to what you and other anti-Obama fans are saying - the award has increased its profile and its credibility

"The Nobel Prize will continue to be highly esteemed, through force of its distinguished history."

Peter,

FYI: Alfred Nobel who was the founder of the Nobel Prizes was a One World Govt supporter!

Obama got the award for his Nuclear weapons and Climate Change Waffle.

His Climate Change waffle he gave at the UN Climate Change conference recently was totally unbalanced and much of it was totally made up over exagerated misinformation from a very misinformed speech writer of his.

Maybe the President's own Speechwriter should be awarded a Nobel Prize for literature!

peter

Noble could obviously see that international co-operation was going to be the only path to peace and survival.

There is nothing wrong with being an advocate for a "world government" approach to armaments, climate, trade to some extent, crime prevention.

It has been going on for years! The United States of America, Commonwealth of Australia, and the European Union are all examples of building blocks toward that end.

What model do you prefer Acid? The World War I model or the World War II model? Ha Ha Ha !!!

I do have a problem with one-world conspiracy theorists though.

George

The Peace Prize has degenerated. It is now by, of, and for, pillocks.

Considering the nominations closed when he was just two weeks into his presidency this has to be an extreme case of premature ejaculation.

Crufts awards are next. Best in Show springs to mind.

All your Magic Kenyan has done is weaken and denigrate the USA and apologise for the benign hegemony that has kept the world of baying arseholes behind their various walls.

Keep cheerleading, Peter. Your bloke needs every bit of adulation you can give him.

peter

Thank you for your encouragement George.

Barack Obama is not Kenyan, but American. Like most things raised by the extreme right in this forum, allegations of this nature have been thoroughly discredited.

I scarcely need to offer my support to a president who already attracts support from every corner of the globe.

Jealousy is one of the nastiest sins of the world. And Tall Poppy syndrome is alive and well in your part of the world ungracious George.

George

Peter, you are a sad victim of the MSM. They died with objectivism some time ago. They live on as a groupies of the current administration, running intereference for all that the Magic Kenyan does. They have helped impliment the scam that has seen the least known, least accomplished and most lauded man to ever gain the highest office in the most powerful nation on earth.

Show me a man's mates and I'll show you the man.

His mates are crooks. I wouldn't trust him if he had red hair and was paler than Queen Elizabeth.
