Don't you wish the Republicans would just keep their mouths shut! Ugh. I love what the DNC guy said.

"The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists -- the Taliban and Hamas this morning -- in criticizing the president for receiving the Nobel Peace prize," DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told Politico. "Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the president of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize -- an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride -- unless of course you are the Republican Party."

Obama does deserve the peace prize, he gives the entire world hope for a peaceful unified future!
His accomplishment is turning the world away from WW3 that Bush had us headed. The entire world feels hope with the exception of the Republicans who want him to fail at every time.

I think that is fantastic not because of his accomplishments but because of his efforts to unite the world. It is a bit ironic for the President of a country fighting two wars to win the peace prize.

However if he can bring peace to the middle east and bring Afghanistan to a successful conclusion. This award will be a fitting tribute and a message to the entire world to cooperate with Obama. This is big! A peace prize for hope not accomplishments man are we desperate!

Now let's see what the world does with the foundation Preside4nt Obama has laid!

We lost any hope for the future because of Bush's war mongering and the world unifying to take the US on! The entire world now sees hope for the future once again. There may be peace yet!
I have been listening to people laughing about Obama getting the prize saying he did nothing! It was mentioned that Reagan should have gotten it.
Hell Reagan started the mess with his over spending and war mongering that Bush was following. Obama is the shining knight the entire world has been waiting for.

Well done Mr Prez.
It was a delightful and reassuring surprise. We heard none of the Republicants response over here. I am shocked. What the heck?

And as for the Olympics...please know that USA can't afford them right now..they end up costing the locals big time!! Believe me. The people in NSW and Sydney are STILL paying off the 2000 Olympics.

And give the South Americans their first shot. It will be good for them.

Friendly games?? That went ages ago...It is all money and nationalism and 'lets beat that other country no matter what'...drugs in sport etc...

Sorry I haven't been blogging or watching lately Karen. Been a bit full on with other stuff in life.

Hope all is well with you and yours.
