To paraphrase Paul Rodgers, Bad Company. That's what the Nobel Peace Prize is these days. It is no longer about world peace, but world leftism. It is what it is.
2009 - Mr. Obama. His qualifications. Four Years in the US Senate and one year as the resident of the oval office. It was a grade many say was on "potential." The whole Obama campaign was "Yes we can" but the reality is "done jack squat."
2007 - Al Gore for his crusade in destroying the economy in the name of global warming.
2002 - Jimmy Carter, the worst president in my lifetime, and who is a major CAUSE of the problems in the middle east. (Iran) Ask Israel what they think of Carter.
2001 - The UN and Kofi Annan. The UN increasingly wants to control internal matters within countries, with the Kyoto and Small Arms treaties. What's peaceful about outsiders running our country?
1994 - Yasser Arafat. A Terrorist.
What's next. The ghost of Kurt Waldheim, former secretary of the UN?
On the other side of things, Mohandas K Ghandi is not on the list of winners.
So Congratulations to Mr. Obama. You're in bad company.
