Rachel Campos-Duffy: Pro-Choice Obama Not Worthy of Nobel

by at . Comments

Everyone's a critic.

When Whoopi Goldberg brought up Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize win on Monday's The View, guest-host Rachel Campos-Duffy, a former reality TV star and current blogger for Anderson Cooper's AC 360 on CNN, said she was shocked.

She's far from alone there, but her rationale was interesting.

"I think personally, for me, that it's Obama's radical abortion position that makes him the least qualified for the prize," Rachel Campos Duffy said.

Joy Behar chimed in with a different take: "We were starting wars. Now we're not."

"I don't know what's going to happen in Afghanistan. It is a little ironic that he is involved in two wars and would be considered the peace person."

"But he didn't start them, and he is trying to end the conflict, and he is trying to bring diplomacy around the world and start a new conversation."

Campos Duffy asks, in similar fashion to some recent late night bashing of Barack, "So basically, he just gets a prize for not being George Bush?"

Behar laughed. "That's true. He does get a prize for not being George Bush."

Yeah, yeah. We've heard it all before. Bring back Heidi Montag, The View!

Does Obama deserve the Nobel Prize?
