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.
