Obama Beat These To The Prize….

From Ace – who else was up for the Nobel Peace Prize?

Chinese Human Rights Activist Hu Jia – imprisoned for campaigning for human rights in the PRC, not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

Wei Jingsheng, who spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China’s communist system. — not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama. (Not to mention the symbolic value of awarding a Chinese dissident on the 20th Anniversary of the Tianenmen Square Massacre.)

Greg Mortenson, founder of the Central Asia Institute has built nearly 80 schools, especially for girls, in remote areas of northern Pakistan and Afghanistan over the past 15 years – not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, a philosophy professor in Jordan who risks his life by advocating interfaith dialogue between Jews and Muslims, also not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

Afghan human rights activist Sima Samar. She currently leads the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and serves as the U.N. special envoy to Darfur and is apparently also not as worthy as Barack Hussein Obama.

What do all of the above have in common? Courage, dedication and scars on their back…

What do none of them have? A hot line to George Soros and a crease in their pants sharp enough to excite David Brooks…

And, of course, little or no mention at this time from the BBC – too embarrassing?

Actually, to be fair, Kirsty Wark was not overly gushing when she interviewed the Obama mouthpiece on Newsnight – and John Bolton was the perfect antidote to Charles “OBN Obama” Powell….

    I’m sure the BBC is falling over itself to mock Obama, especially the usual nefty nut suspsects and Obama worshippers like Marcus Prighaus.

    I guess not.

    9. He looks better in a red Speedo than Hugo Chavez
    8. He visited Norway once in 1982, on his way back from Pakistan
    7. Most of the Committee wanted to have sex with him, except Sven who’s into goats.
    6. His name begins with “O” just like Oslo.
    5. He hadn’t personally ordered the hit on 3 teenaged Somali pirates by February 1st
    4. Michelle threatened to visit each committee member at 4am to arm wrestle and “discuss” stuff
    3. He was recommended by his good terrorist friend Bill Ayers
    2. Those missiles formerly in Poland are now pointing directly at Oslo.
    1. In Norwegian, the word “Peace” means Putz.

    10. He is the lightbringer, the healer, the answer to all our prayers – he is the Obamamessiah.


  3. dodgy reception says:

    Just watched Reporters on BBC News 24. Half an hour of sneering lefty comment. In theory it was 3 left, 1 right, but the man on the right seemed v.soft and joined in with the other 3 in a clean sweep attacking Cameron.

    The usual left-wing nonsense was spouted, how it was wrong to cut spending, how our deficit isn’t really low, how Obama was right to get the Nobel peace prize, how horrid that the media isn’t attacking the tories more (funny, I don’t remember them being critical when everyone was loving labour), how awful the war is, why don’t we do more on the environment.

    It takes a stern stomach to get through it but it’s the most blatant bias I’ve seen for some time.


  4. Craig says:

    dodgy reception

    Spot on! And a joint attack on Henry Kissinger and another joint attack on Silvio Berlusconi to finish.


  5. David vance says:

    Anyone catch William Hague on Any Questions on this issue. He suggested it was indeed “appropriate” for Obama to be given this award.

    Beware what you may elect. 


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      That just shows how dangerous it is for the Norwegians to use the prize as a political weapon.  If the (possible, probable) future Foreign Secretary is afraid to publicly criticize His award, it’s a bad sign.

      It’s just become another reason for world leaders to show deference to the President of the US.  Shame.


      • David vance says:

        No ifs about it David, and you make a good point. The sheer fear of disputing the conveyance of this award upon the US President is what drives Hague to mewl that is is indeed “appropriate”. I was shocked.


  6. Travis Bickle says:

    The Nobel Prize givers were desperate to find a black man they could patronize.  Obama just had to do.


  7. John Horne Tooke says:

    The religion of PC infects everyone these days. You just cannot air any view in public without a big fuss from our beloved left wing media. Imagine if William Hague has said Obama’s Nobel was political and that he did not deserve it – the BBC would have a field day. Better to say nowt.


    • Opinionated More Than Educated says:

      You don’t think that Hague might be thinking how well dissing Obama’s gong would play in Washington as he arrives for his first visit as Foreign Secretary. Sounds like diplomatic common sense rather than PC gone, um, mad. Wouldn’t you say?


      • David Preiser (USA) says:

        Exactly.  It has become another reason to show deference to the President.


      • John Horne Tooke says:

        You mean show the same courtesy that Barry shows to our Prime Minister?


        • Jack Bauer says:

          Ha. Yes. TOTUS told him to say…

          “Oh Gordon… here’s the another bust of Churchill you can stick.. and a pile of DVDs I’ve just gotten offa ebay. Regards to Her madge.”


  8. John Horne Tooke says:

    Not suprising that Obama won – last year Al Gore got one but this woman didn’t.
