Barack Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

So, what are your thoughts on this?

Do you think its to soon, ridiculous, or wonderful?

I will share my thoughts later, I just do not want a debate going on. I am legitimately interested in everyone opinions.


  1. Ummm why did he win a prize for peace...haven't seen anything peaceful we still have troops in Iraq..he is thinking he might need to send more to what is the peace prize for?? I haven't heard anything about this so I am curious.

  2. for his "promises" is what I am seeing.

  3. Yeah, Award for "promises"...I can think of many who actually DID something great and did not receive an award.

    1.4 million was also awarded with this.

    Just another thing to divide everyone and make some of us even MORE PO'd.

    This award is a joke now.

  4. Sorry if this is offensive but this is BULLSHIT! There are so many more deserving people out there that deservd this award a long time ago and I feel it is a racial award.

  5. Give me a break! What rubbish. I just lost more respect for the Nobel.

  6. What has he done to deserve it? Promised some things, so a man who has dedicated his lifes work to peace is passed over for a man who makes promises of peace?

  7. glad I am in the majority then ladies!! I think it is obsurd!

  8. As much as I am in support of Obama, I think this award was given very prematurely. I have no doubt that in the FUTURE he'd be quite deserving of it, but I do think it's a bit soon to be handing this one to him right now. Let him walk the walk, before rewarding his talk.

  9. This is extremely premature.
    Don't Candidates have to actually have a list of accomplishments before they qualify?
    What is the criteria for the candidates?
    That they "hope" for world peace?
    In that case Miss America should win next year!

    I don't think he deserves to join the ranks of Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela.

  10. Heres an idea: let me win next year. I am full of good ideas for the world and world peace ;)

  11. I like his ideas, but really think The Nobel Peace Prize should be given to someone who has made great strides towards achieving peace somewhere in the world. Obama has put himself in position to make these accomplishments by running a great campaign and getting elected to the highest office in the land. Still, I think the prize was given too soon.

  12. I did a similar post on my blog, and while maybe some day in the future, I think the committee made a HUGE mistake here. There are several people I believe have actually DONE something to further the cause of peace, not just talked about the "change" that needs to be done:
