Apparently nominations for the prize had to be submitted by February, so this nomination had to have been made what...
11 days after Obama was elected?
Tell me again, what had this man done at that time to deserve this award, other than not be GWB?
Some years back when the economy of the Soviet Union collapsed, in a political discussion with friends, I made the comment:
"We're in trouble now because we are the ONLY superpower in the world. Up 'til now, other countries needed/used us as a bodyguard. They won't need us now... in fact, they'll be frightened of our power."
Now they're watching as we are being castrated by this administration, and they couldn't possibly be more delighted.
Congratulations President Obama.
The future will tell if the cost was worth that prize.
