Obama: The Second Coming

Is there nothing the man can’t do? Now he’s been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. The committee awarded Obama the prize simply for the “potential” he has to bring peace to the world.

I haven’t seen any of it. To the best of my knowledge the world still hates us. Muslim extremists still want to kill us. If anyone out there has a concrete example of how Obama has changed the world for the better, I would like to see the evidence. On Twitter my assertion is that he hasn’t done anything to call for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Someone popped up and said the following in reply: “except making many things possible that were impossible before, such as a non racist, religiously tolerant, safe, modern world”.

What things were impossible that Obama himself made possible? Racism still exists. This is just one small example of continued racism in the world: http://bit.ly/15QLbh

As for religiously tolerant part of that statement. Read this blog about religious persecutions that have happened so far this month: http://bit.ly/SbEA And how about the ongoing honor killings in the Middle  East? He mentioned a modern world. How “modern” is it when women are still killed because they have been raped?

Finally, the poster claims that Obama has made the world safe. I’m guessing the poster doesn’t watch the news.

I could be insulting and derisive. Trust me, I’m REALLY tempted. But that’s not what a good skeptic does. I am interested to see what concrete evidence people give to justify Obama receiving such a coveted award. This is something that people strive their entire lives for. This is an achievement of a lifetime and I seriously feel that the committee has missed the mark here.

If Obama has improved the world in the way the poster asserts, I just don’t see it.

    Obama has had everything handed to him. he has worked for nothing and deserves nothing, except his dismissal from office.

    As someone who voted and supports the current president, I don’t think he deserved the reward at all. I hope he eventually does earn it, but he really hasn’t done anything for it at this point.

    Of course, he also didn’t nominate himself for this thing. So I find it a bit amusing that people (not necessarily anyone here) use Obama winning to attack him, as if he gave the award to himself.

    That being said, by simply not being Bush, not starting a new war and demonstrating a desire to compromise (too much, if you ask me), he has made great leaps in improving our foreign relations with the nations that are supposed to be our allies, but didn’t particularly like us the last 8 years.
