Story of Obama’s life: “Rather than recognizing concrete achievement…”

Isn’t it so fitting?

From community organizer to Illinois state senator (present!) to U.S. Senator for 143 days before moving into the White House…and now, the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize — not for anything he’s actually done, but for the symbolism of what he might possibly accomplish sometime way off in the future:

“President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation.

The stunning choice made Obama the third sitting U.S. president to win the Nobel Peace Prize and shocked Nobel observers because Obama took office less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline. Obama’s name had been mentioned in speculation before the award but many Nobel watchers believed it was too early to award the president.”

It’s the final nail in the Nobel Peace Prize Committee’s coffin.

A Chinese dissident and an Afghan women’s rights activist lost out to this:

“The Nobel committee praised Obama’s creation of “a new climate in international politics” and said he had returned multilateral diplomacy and institutions like the U.N. to the center of the world stage. The plaudit appeared to be a slap at President George W. Bush from a committee that harshly criticized Obama’s predecessor for resorting to largely unilateral military action in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Rather than recognizing concrete achievement, the 2009 prize appeared intended to support initiatives that have yet to bear fruit: reducing the world stock of nuclear arms, easing American conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthening the U.S. role in combating climate change.”

The world agree’s, Obama is moving in the right direction. There were way too many things that were counter to democrazy – Get it Rush – Demoncrazy Bush was doing under the guidance of Cheney. So many middle ground Americans voted for CHANGE. The entire election was a battle field of idea’s but the one concept that stood above all was that the cycle of corporate greed needed to be broken within our military complex of ex soldiers who become mercenaries for PMC’s (Private Military Corporations). It’s troublesome to see a great beacon of hope, emasculate it’s citizens in the name of freedom, and then force it’s friends abroad to either stand beside us, or kneel before us as we do it our way. So yes… don’t get your head stuck up in your back end by forgetting how bad of a situation Bush had put all of us Americans in. None of us could travel safely within the European countries for a LONG time. Things are getting much better. PEACE!! CHANGE!! EQUALITY!! = Obama’s message during the campaign trail. That is why he got it. Duh!!
