Who says this?

"What has Obama done to deserve this prize? The jury put store on his hope for a nuclear arms-free world, forgetting his role in perpetuating his battalions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his decision to install new military bases in Colombia
"For the first time, we are witnessing an award with the nominee having done nothing to deserve it: rewarding someone for a wish that is very far from becoming reality.

Answer, in the comments!

I looked it up on Google; but I won't say who it is right now. I did have to laugh at the bit about this being the first time someone won who didn't deserve it....what the heck, he never heard of Al Gore, Yassir Arafat, Jimmy Carter, and I'm sure the list could go on.

Weird stuff.

He does have a point, though. I thought the exact same thing: Why in the world does Obama deserve the Prize? For making fifteen billion vague speeches about eventually doing something that has a possibility of maybe leading to peace in the indeterminate possible future?

Nice post, PB, a quote from the person that dictates what books Obama reads! (Nope, not Oprah's book list.)

.... ....

But are we really surprised? The only thing Obama ran on during the campaign was HOPE and CHANGE and Community Organizing (ACORN Corruption)

KD, the list would absolutely go on.

Knight, at least he hasn't tried to kill any one with a gun. So he's got that going for him. :D

K-Rod, excellent points.

For the rest of ya'll, the source is Hugo Chavez, 'freely' elected tyrant of Venezuela.

What was the name of that book he told Obama to read?
