Skip to comments.They may revoke Obama’s Nobel
Posted on 02/02/2012 5:11:23 AM PST by Mustang Driver
Will an investigation of the Nobel Peace Prize committee lead to a revocation of President Obamas Nobel Peace Prize of 2009? That is a good question as a formal inquiry has begun into the way the committee chooses its winners. The board of inquiry does have the authority to revoke Obamas award, although that is unlikely, the Associated Press reported.
The Peace Prize is awarded by a group in Norway. Swedish committees decide the other prizes. The Norwegians have drifted from the original intent of the Peace Prize.
Fredrik Heffermehl, a prominent researcher and critic of the selection process, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Nobel called it a prize for the champions of peace. And its indisputable that he had in mind the peace movement, i.e. the active development of international law and institutions, a new global order where nations safely can drop national armaments.

The only reason he received it was because he was so darn cool. He didn’t actually have any accomplishments deserving of it.
It's what the Nobel has been reduced to.
All they have to do is rename it...
The Nobel Politics Prize
Have fun trying to get a million dollar refund, from that s.o.b.
..along with his diplomas and his “birth certificate”.
Why revoke it? Just double down and get one ready for Ahmadinejad. Or present one to the leaders of the Arab Spring. Just slip it to them between the bars.
“Obama NPP Revoked!! AP Editorial Board Commits Suicide!!! Film at 11!
Drinking all that coolaid made them do something amazingly stupid. It also left a serious hangover. Now that they’ve sobered up and recovered, maybe they would like to do the right thing. They better, because the prize has zero credibility now.
Exactly. Nobody gives a damn if they revoke it or not. As soon as they awarded it to Obama, Nobel became meaningless forever more.
Soros and his bunch bought and paid for it.
Going against all that? NOT BLOODY LIKELY!!
Give the Nobel Peace Prize to the runner-up.
“He didnt actually have any accomplishments deserving of it.”
I thought it became meaningless when they gave it to Arrafat.
Ha, great point. Maybe they were just trying to reaffirm what they had already stated.
“The only reason he received it was because he was so darn cool.”
I’ve never even thought that he was all that “cool.”
This meaningless award will not be revoked....but one DOES wonder about how it would affect the overwhelmingly narcissistic personality that is Obama...
Kind of describes his whole life -
receiving awards, accolades, and positions of honor for nothing.
Why would they do that? He was given it because
“Why revoke it? Just double down and get one ready for Ahmadinejad. Or present one to the leaders of the Arab Spring. Just slip it to them between the bars.”
isn’t that the truth????!!!!
Not for nothing, for being black
That is the issue.
The Nobel Peace Prize became a joke when it was awarded to a narcissist community organizer because he was Black and because the euro-libs “thought” he might do great things.
Like Noble Peace Prize winner Yassir Arafat did.... (sarc)
Some of the people who lost to obama (and also to ALgor another pufftoad joke) WERE great people, shame for them.
—Like Noble Peace Prize winner Yassir Arafat did.... (sarc)—
It’s funny you mentioned that. I was thinking about it when I posted, because that was the moment I, personally, lost respect for the award. The obama award was when they jumped the shark for even those not really paying attention. :-)
This is why the NFL waits until after all of the games have been played before they give out the Lombardi trophy. Giving it out on the opening weekend of the season would be a really dumb idea.
I just want his presidency revoked and all the damage he has done, reversed.
The NPP is, these days, simply
“who has advanced or will advance the anti-Christian, anti-Western, pro-Marxist agenda the most”.
We have a winner.
Barry is the world’s first “Everybody Gets A Trophy” Nobel prize winner. It’s historic! Thanks for playing Barry! Here’s your trophy!
I agree. Let Bambi's "prize" stand along with the murderous Arafat's "prize".
Anyone remember Arafat? The Pali leader who called an intifada against Israel because he was only offered some 97% of his demands at the Camp David accords and later was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for simply attending the meeting?
Because he didn't get some 3% of his demands, Arafat immediately called for all Palis to kill as many Israel citizens as possible. Am I the only one who remembers the daily horrific bombings of buses, cafes, weddings, marketplaces, etc. in Israel? Israel built a big a## wall and that genocide stopped. Unfortunately for the palis, so did their jobs. So sad - too bad. Disclaimer: I am not Jewish.
So according to the Nobel Committee, I should be awarded the Peace Prize because I also would like to see peace on Earth, and have a plan to insure it (trust, but verify). Screw them and their stupid peace prize. It often makes me wonder if the Nobel Committee has an agenda for their other categories of prizes.
And while I'm on topic and ranting:
1. There is no such thing as a palistinian (look up the history), other than the United Nations partition that called the entire area Trans-Jordan and with one being Palestine, which included Israel. Technically, Israelis are palistinians:
2. After many wars against the Muslim hoards of many countries, Israel has been very accomodating;
3. There are NO refugee camps. The Palis have TOWNS in Gaza.
4. Israel gave the Palis the Gaza. What did the Palis do? They immediately destroyed the entire Israeli infra-structure which made their lives worse. They are gutter people who like many muslims think it's better to destroy than to build.
Now we have Iran. Islam is the worse scourge on humanity since the Nazi party. Even the Soviets believed in MAD - don't think the Islamists care. They are a death cult and will never change.
They don’t need to take it away from Obama, all they need to do is rename it the Ignoble War and Mayhem Price as fitting for Obama, as well as Arrafat and others they have given it to.
The Nobel Committe a bunch of sniveling Swedes. Acting stupidly, they paid their prize. Now let them go to hell if they want it back.
I never thought I'd be on BHO's side, but, when it comes to Eurotrash wanting to enforce a judgement, I'm 1000% in Barry's corner! A traitor he is, but he's our traitor!
In a related story, Cracker Jack wants its prize back. Thanks Mustang Driver.
