HOW OBAMA WON: PAM MEISTER
Adventures in Obama Land â€“ The Nobel Prize Committee Honors â€˜The Oneâ€™Pam Meister
Fridayâ€™s news that Barack Obama won this yearâ€™s Nobel Peace Prize was a surprise to pretty much everyone. Itâ€™s proof that not all surprises pleasant ones. Rush Limbaugh opened his show Friday by saying, â€œThere arenâ€™t words for this. Well, there are, butâ€¦Can you imagine, folks, how big Obamaâ€™s head must be today? I didnâ€™t think it could get any bigger.â€
Chris Matthews was reported to be feeling another tingle, but it wasnâ€™t in his leg.
When I fire up my computer in the morning, the first thing I check is e-mail. I saw a number of messages with â€œObama wins Peace Prizeâ€ in the subject line, and figured it was some kind of weird joke. Yet as the morning wore on, I realized the joke was on me â€“ really, on all of us.
Apparently Obama himself was surprised, and word is that heâ€™s â€œdeeply humbled.â€ I didnâ€™t know narcissists could feel humble, but I suppose thereâ€™s a first time for everything. Heâ€™s going to accept the Nobel committeeâ€™s â€œcall to action.â€ I thought the Nobel Prize was supposed to reflect some sort of accomplishment, but the fact that itâ€™s a bunch of Euro elitist snobs who prefer a presidency that fails America pretty much explains the rationale behind the award.
Speaking of accomplishment, a commenter at the Times Online UK wondered:
So we should award the physics prize to science fiction authors before their book has hit the stands?
Personally, I want to know if The One will be redistributing his $1.4 million prize, but somehow I doubt it â€“ redistribution of the wealth is for the little people.
Jonathan Tobin makes an interesting point, saying that based upon the rules, Obama really earned this prestigious prize:
The award citation includes the following: â€œHis 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 worldâ€™s population.â€
What are those values and attitudes? In his Cairo speech in June, Obama articulated his belief in a moral equivalence between Western democracy and the authoritarianism and tyranny under which almost all the Arab and Muslim world labors. In Cairo he lauded the right of Muslim women to choose to wear veils but said nothing about the fact that the societies he means to engage seek to compel the wearing of such headgear on all women, as well as to impose their beliefs on everyone. To the applause of Americaâ€™s detractors and enemies, he has eschewed the spread of democracy and freedom, apologized for rather than expressed pride in his own nation, and preferred instead to â€œengageâ€ vile dictators who mock the values and attitudes upon which American liberty is based.
People are saying, â€œBut heâ€™s only been in office nine months. How could that be enough time for him to do anything?â€ Remember: the deadline for Nobel prize nominee submissions is February 1st. This means that Obama was in office for a full 10 days before having his name tossed into the hat.
This means that he transformed the world in 10 days â€“ almost, but not beating, Godâ€™s record of seven days. No wonder heâ€™s been deemed the new Messiah.
Should Obama have rejected the prize? If he were the type of person to reject it, he wouldnâ€™t have been nominated for it, let alone win it. Heâ€™s a wet dream for globalists everywhere.
The Nobel Peace Prize jumped the shark when the boobs on the committee gave it to Yasser Arafat. With that in mind, make what you will of its going to Obama.
Perhaps, though, the most important aspect of this Major Award is that Michelle Obama can – finally – be proud of the world.
