Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize.
Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter . . . . Obama has just joined your club!

I’m sure we’ll be hearing right-wing screams about “he hasn’t done anything” and “it’s only been 9 months” . . . claims that are ironic in themselves, given that they have been blaming the economy, Afghanistan, and Iraq on Obama.

So what did he do to earn the Nobel PEACE Prize?

It’s what he has NOT done. To those who say “he hasn’t done anything except give speeches,” I finally agree with the right-wingers.

In the last nine months, not once has the following crossed his lips:

“With us or against us.”
“Shock and Awe”
“Mission Accomplished”
“Bring ‘em on.”
“Heckuva job Brownie.”
“Dead or Alive.”
“Axis of Evil”
“. . . is not torture.”
“Most Wanted Iraqi Playing Cards”
“Undisclosed Location”

I’d also like to point out that though he did mention the following, it was to deny it:

“Death Panels”
“Weapons of Mass Destruction”
“Yellow Cake”
"Socialist Agenda"

Maybe they should come out with a Nobel War Prize, so that those who use phrases like those above (while wearing Christianity on their sleeves) can win something.
