Obama's Nobel Peace prize

Years from now I will tell my grandchildren that Obama didn't really have any political skills or achievements.

 

They will reply oh no what about his peace prize?  He is currently one of very few sitting US presidents to get the peace prize.  

 

But this prize like all his achievements in Chicago were handed to him without any direct actual political magic of his own doing...He literally isn't a force to be reckoned with.

 

The next time an axelrod or Dailykos bring us an Obama remember what happens if you follow someone who has had their career handed to them by others.

Lets face corruption

Obama winning the Nobel Peace prize is corruption.

 

He didn't win this for anything he did.  Bill Clinton played a major role in two conflicts that had existed for decades and nearly ended both of them.

 

The Irish mess has held the peace and the Israeli mess would have been over if Arafat wasn't crazy.

Plus . . .

Let's add Clinton taking out Slobodan Milosevic with a count of zero American battle deaths -- in a time period and cost so minimal that no one even discussed it.  Unlike taking out Sadaam . . .

Thanks

for this fresh perspective on a current issue and for your comprehensive treatment.

Reading it was definitely one of those moments that alters one's path and view of the world.

I'll never think about politics in exactly the same way.

your welcome

 

Corruption is corruption and fraud in the Nobel price committee is still fraud.

Nope.  Just trying to learn all 4 of the cliches that constitute your political universe.
