I'm just sitting here thinking HUH? I mean, honestly, what the gosh dang dingy COULD you be doing hearing that. The Nobel Peace Prize??? Seriously??
I guess I'm just not up to snuff on the delicacies of Nobel Prize stuff.
President Obama??? On "future hope" gets the prize???
I think I deserve the Prize as well. For raising 9 children. For stocking my pantry (against that presidential future hope garbage). For just living in this country and not going nuts.

As fellow Americans we always take pride in the achievements and awards of our compatriots. Although we congratulate President Obama for winning the Nobel Peace Prize today, he should accept the award on behalf of the American people for all our many sacrifices to make the world a better place.
Everyone recognizes, however, that the Nobel Committee awarded the prize to President Obama on the basis of hope for the future rather than achievements of the past. The politicization of this award saddens us when dissident leaders in China, Zimbabwe, Cuba and other dictatorships are passed over despite substantial achievements and not just hope for things to come:::
Thank you for sharing this Liz.
