I think many member's of the Republican Party, as well as the many other obstructionist camouflaging as Conservatives, are missing the point of why President Obama received the Nobel Piece Prize.
If these Bobble Heads would take the time to LISTEN, (instead of passing judgment every time the President farts the wrong way) they would know, according to the Nobel Committee Spokesperson who spoke at the Press conference, that President Obama was NOT given the Prize for what he "has done" since becoming President....this Honor was bestowed upon him for the galvanization of the American people if not the world, during his campaign. The positive TONE he brought to the Presidential race was unmatched by any other. The entire world watched and cheered as he made his dignified and historical stride towards becoming the First African American President. A stride which he finished, I might add, without ever once playing the Race Card against his opponents, despite many efforts of others to drag him into the gutter.
The Nobel Piece Prize is not a Presidential Award... it is an Humanitarian Award. For anyone to discredit President Obama's wonderful achievement in this regard is just another Right Wing effort to De-legitimize his Presidency. Regardless of the fact that the man has been a symbol of Piece his entire life.
