There are three Presidents of the United States who have received the Nobel Peace Prize. The are Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and.

[insert drum roll]

Barack Obama.

No. I’m not making this up. Stop laughing! It would be funny if it weren’t true.

The justification given by the Nobel Committee for this high honor is:

His extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.

They also cited his “outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation”.

Dear reader, there is but one glaring detail left out of The One’s Nobel commendation. The deadline for nominations to the Nobel Committee was February 1, 2009. In case you don’t have a calendar handy, on February 1, 2009, Barack Obama had been officially sitting in the Big Chair for ten days. Personally, I thought the Nobel Committee was off its collective rocker when they gave the global warming scare monger in chief Algore the Peace Prize for his error ridden and hideously dull movie work.

Now they go give a Peace Prize – something for which some people do actual commendable work sometimes over a period of decades to earn – to a guy who does little other than travel around the world giving TelePrompTered speeches slamming the very nation he claims to lead.

Spare me. Give me a #%#$^#@ break. Someday I pray we get back to honoring people who have actually accomplished great things rather than just talked about them.
