Nobel Peace Prize? For WHAT exactly?

If there was ever any doubt (hint: there wasn't) that the Nobel prize committee is motivated not by events on the ground but rather by ideology, this should be proof enough.

Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in a stunning decision that honored the first-year U.S. president more for promise than achievement and drew both praise and skepticism around the world.

The bestowal of one of the world's top accolades on a president less than nine months in office, who has yet to score a major foreign policy success, was greeted with gasps of astonishment from journalists at the announcement in Oslo.
Here's another clue for you. When even the media is amazed at the audaciousness of the award, you've overstepped badly.

At least SOMEONE out there thinks it's all a bit much.
[C]ritics called the Nobel's committee's decision premature, given that Obama so far has made little tangible headway as he grapples with challenges ranging from the war in Afghanistan and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to nuclear standoffs with Iran and North Korea.
Amen to that!

This is SOOOOOOO typical of the Left-Liberal mindset. It's the INTENTIONS that count, NOT the results.

Welcome to insanity.
