shanrick: I hope he wins the BOB award./best of the best
b0rscht: Obama didn't deserve the 1st one for sure.
feckingmorons: If they call him to Stockholm it will be to take the first one back.
NeoAnderthal: Why not? He's every bit as worthy of a second one as he was the first time.
sendtodave: revrendjim: No. He didn't deserve the first one./life-long liberal and DemocratI don't know, I mean I guess he didn't. He hasn't objectively lived up to it. As a liberal, I should hate him, really.But, I dunno. More and more I just feel that maybe we are being too hard on him for some reason. I mean, he's not such a bad guy, you know?I think those guys in Stockholm just saw something in him.Maybe I'm suffering from some kind of syndrome?
TalenLee: Barack Obama turns up promising to stop those wars and step down the militarism, and gets elected. That is, Barack Obama, just by getting elected, expressed the ability of a nation that had been in a state of non-stop war for a near-decade to stop, to stabilise, and maybe stop being such a gigantic asshole to the rest of the world
Lionel Mandrake: I hope so. Not because he deserves it, but it would piss off all the people I most like to see miserable.
revrendjim: No. He didn't deserve the first one./life-long liberal and Democrat
Peter von Nostrand: I'm still amused that people somehow think the statements Kerry made were just dumb luck
Farxist Marxist: Putin was perceived as the peacemaker, and Obama suffered another foreign policy black eye.
secularsage: ghare: secularsage:I disagree, and I have no love for either party.
NewWorldDan: TalenLee: Barack Obama turns up promising to stop those wars and step down the militarism, and gets elected. That is, Barack Obama, just by getting elected, expressed the ability of a nation that had been in a state of non-stop war for a near-decade to stop, to stabilise, and maybe stop being such a gigantic asshole to the rest of the worldThat is a view that can only be described as willfully ignorant of Barack Obama and what he stands for. And what he stands for is... nothing. And this was entirely apparent during the campaign. He offered up populist platitudes about what a lot of people wanted to hear. But the US political machinery being the broken system that it is, his primary and general election opponents were 2 people that no one really wanted, so he speaks to the youth about hope and change and they fall for it. But I'm terribly disappointed in the Nobel committee for being so gullible.Given the history of the peace prize, I shouldn't be so surprised. I would be surprised if the committee were dumb enough to give another award to the guy who uses murder drones to execute "bad guys" without any sort of trial or oversight, after failing to close Gitmo, for sustaining the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, for illegally waging war in Libya, and for trying to start another war in Syria. Anyone who thinks this guy should be considered for a second peace prize needs to get their head examined. This clown belongs in jail with Bush and Cheney. Hell, the last US president who wasn't a crook was Carter, and he was just a joke.
Doktor_Zhivago: Nothing says nobel peace prize like extra judicial killings and 178 dead babies.
BalugaJoe: We need Fark awards
