    Democracy is about the people choosing who they want to lead them. If they chose a group that want to impose Sharia Law, as long as it was a valid election there's nothing we can (or should) do about it.

    If he was a republican Democrats would be screaming for him to be tried for war crimes, It would have been better given to someone what hasn't bombed 3 countries and murdered even US citizens

    Depends.

    On the value of the Nobel Prize for Peace.

    I seriously question its value. The last several recipients have NOT been heroes.

    Certainly, since awarding to Obamavich 'Large Ears, the Award has eroded to zero....

    After his identifying those in small business as "you didn't build that", I honestly believe with him and the Nobel Prize, "he didn't earn that". It has cheapened the award to the point that Grease Monkey is now handing them out with each oil change.

    Wait, Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize... I thought it was that idiot Gore! Oh wait, now I see my mistake, Gore said their was Global Warming and Obama said a world without Nuclear weapons... see I was thinking Cold War.. you can see the dilemma, right?

    Both of these idiots should be stripped of their Nobel awards... here is what they said about Obama:

    for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

    Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama's initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.

    Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population.

    Can you say, oops we were stupid?!

    I think so, he was a man that gave up job opportunitys paying a lot of money to work for nothing in order to help others who had nothing. He was successful in helping those people, his actions were humble and noble.

    Obama left his prior job as a senator earning $174,000 per year when he became president. His last reported salary as a community organizer was 15,000 per year. The president earns $400,000 per year in salary. The value of the perks is incalculable. The value of his FUTURE opportunites including book royalties, speaking fees, etc is also incalculable. Bill Clinton, who NEVER had a high paying job prior to public service, is worth an estimated $80 Million. It is true that his wife Michelle left a part time job illegally dumping patients for a Chicago area hospital for 300K but I believe you now should have enough information to disabuse you of the notion that Obama took a cut in pay to be president.

    Mitt Romney left a job at Bain Capital making millions to work for the Salt Lake City Olympic Organizing committee for a salary of $1.00. If walking away from money were the attribute sought out by the Nobel Committee they should take Obama's Nobel Prize away from him and give it to Mitt Romney. The Nobel Committee made a mockery of and diluted the value of the Peace Prize. Obama continued both the Iraq and Afghan wars BEFORE he "earned" the Nobel Prize.

He initiated a brief violent intervention to ensure Qaddafi was executed by his own people. He has stepped up executions of terrorist suspects from 20,000 feet in the form of missiles launched from drone aircraft. He supported a policy that led to the Muslim Brotherhood taking over in Egypt and promptly threatening to abrogate the treaty with Israel which ironically was the sole reason Jimmy Carter, the last US President to receive the award, got it. Good God man, your inability to make an informed decision based on facts is stunning.

    They weren't. These were the same goofballs that gave the award to Gore over Irena Sendler (who saved 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto), and gave it to Arafat. The 'peace prize' is nothing but political hot air.
