Barack Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize

by at . Comments

Republicans will likely find a way to turn this into an example of Socialism, but Barack Obama has won the 2009 Nobel Peace Price.

In a surprising announcement this morning, the annual award's committee cited the President "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

Obama is only the third sitting President to earn the honor, following Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Despite his short time in his office, the Oslo-based committee said:

"We are awarding Obama for what he has done. Many other people and leaders and nations have to respond in a positive way" to President Obama's diplomacy.

In less than a year since his historic victory, President Obama has spoken out in favor for reductions in nuclear arsenals; is trying to restart peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians; and has faced constant challenges in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Thorbjorn Jagland -  the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee - told reporters he hopes the Nobel Peace Prize designation "will enhance what he is trying to do."

Do you agree it's well-deserved? Or is too early to bestow such an award on Obama? Vote below!

Obama was the only reason, the whole world started to re-think about their take on americans..not the selfish, biased, cruel-minded and foolish people...but people who put all the racial discrimination aside and chose a leader, who could restore the world's trust into america again...who promised that war would never be an option for him,.who tried to bridge gaps between the muslims and the west, in order to calm down the animosity between the two communities as both the wars, america waged against, were muslim countries...where wars were so not needed!!!! more like wanted!
BUT U PEOPLE HAVE STARTED TO SHOW WHO U PEOPLE REALLY ARE...!!!
BRAINLESS N BITTER NATION! WHO WANT ALADIN TO FIX THEIR PROBLEMS BECAUSE FOX NEWS HYPNOTIZES THEM AND THEY DONT HAVE THEIR OWN BRAINS TO USE!
