It wasn't even that long. The nominations for the Nobel Prize end on February First. That's only approximately two weeks after the Inaugural.

How’s that Hope and Change working out for you.

Obama could have turned it down you know and said they he doesn’t deserve this and to check back in four years, but he knew deep down in his own narcissistic heart that he wouldn’t even deserve it then and got the getting while the getting was good.

I like what Newt said.....

“As an American I am not so shocked that Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishments to his name, but that America gave him the White House based on the same credentials.”

I used to like these guys years ago when they had a sense of humor. Maybe since GW isn't President anymore others will realize what kind of fantasy they have been living in.

Now that Green Day has weighed in, I would say the case is closed.

Perhaps Green Day should wonder why they were ever perceived as real musicians. They’ve polluted young minds for years with their useless noise and then wonder why Obama gets an award for accomplishing nothing?

When it's so obvious that even these American Idiots get it, you know how meaningless the award is........

At least they seem to be smarter than Sting who thinks Obama came from God.
