In “Good” Company: Why Are You Surprised by Obama Nobel Prize?

By Debbie Schlussel


Are you angry and/or surprised at the Obama Nobel Peace Prize award?  If so, why?


Barack’s Nobel: In Good Company

Have you forgotten that this is the same group of loons–the Nobel Committee–that gave the Nobel Peace Prize to Yasser Arafat and Jimmy Carter?  So, it shouldn’t shock you that Jimmuh #2 got a peace prize, too, albeit a little earlier on the job.  Have you forgotten that this is the same group that gave a Nobel to Al Gore for riding his G5 jet and living in his energy-consuming mansion all the way as a way of fighting “global warming”?

Oh, and by the way, the faux-conservatives at sites like Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air should be lapping this award up.  After all, the Nobel idiots said they gave Obama his award largely for his pandering, lying, nauseating speech to the Muslim world in Cairo, earlier this year.  That was the speech that ignoramus Ed Morrissey, Malkin’s Hot Air lapdog, slobberingly gushed all over, as “surprisingly good.”  (Yeah, the same airhead, Morrissey, who consistently panders to and promotes Islamist Grover Norquist and repeatedly praised Iran’s Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the mastermind of the Hezbollah Buenos Aires bombing of the Jewish community center and Israeli embassy.)

So are you really surprised by this?  I’m not.  I expected he’d get the award from these ninnies sooner or later.  Remember, they’re from the Islamopandering Scandinavia that’s fast becoming ScandIslamia.  It’s no surprise that the Nobelians are headquartered in the same place, Oslo, where the disastrous Oslo Accords were signed and brought Mid-East peace to Mike’s Bar in Tel Aviv and Sbarro’s pizza in Jerusalem, and a Passover celebration in an Israeli hotel in 2002.  These are the same Norwegians who’ve been consistently anti-Israel, while their country becomes Muslim. When you get a “peace” prize from these people, it means you fostered the exact opposite of the word.

Pretty soon, the Nobel might even be the Koranobel.

**** UPDATE: Wanna complain to the Nobel idiots? Not that they’ll listen. They’re morons. But if you wanna send ’em hatemail have at it by writing to comments@nobelprize.org

Yup,,, why am I not surprised? the Western world has lost it’s effing minds. God help us all!

Drakken on October 9, 2009 at 12:17 pm

I’m not suprised in the least. As much as these dummies are falling over themselves giving each other awards and thumping their chests saying “Look at us, look at what we’re giving you”…
Think I just lost my breakfast…..sigh

Ed on October 9, 2009 at 12:24 pm

Arrafat and Carter turned it into something worse than worthless. Looks good on a resume I guess. 3 years and odd months and counting.

Mike Smith IV on October 9, 2009 at 12:33 pm

It just goes to show: Obama is so good at winning popularity contests that he can win ones he didn’t even know he entered.

luagha on October 9, 2009 at 12:39 pm

Debbie, I wasn’t surprised. The only surprise is these ninnies went ahead of schedule to make themselves look ridiculous.

What’s missing in this world is shame and a sense of proportion.

NormanF on October 9, 2009 at 12:52 pm

Other nominees (just for laughs):

mcnorman on October 9, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Obama was entered into the Nobel nomination by the usual leftist suspects. Its really an “affirmative action” prize. No one in their right mind would bestow an honor upon an unqualified white person. Yet Obama gets it because he has the right skin color and to Europe’s leftist elite, he had the right views. You could make a case earlier awardees stood for something. What has Obama stood for?

I defy any person to name me ONE accomplishment that makes him deserving of today’s announcement.

NormanF on October 9, 2009 at 12:59 pm

    NormanF – the Obama-messiah has had many accomplishments. He has kissed the asses of most of the world’s dictators, and then told all of us Americans to BOHICA because he wants to make nice with the likes of the Taliban and other terrorists. He has also made America weaker, and in the minds of other nations, this makes the world safer.

    Ostupid should actually get an Ig Award for race relations. He has made race relations in the US worse than it is has been in decades.

    Jarhead on October 9, 2009 at 1:39 pm

I have more respect for the Eurovision song contest. Maybe Obama will win that next too.

George NYC on October 9, 2009 at 1:14 pm

This is just the leftists saying screw you to American conservatives, plain and simple.

stevecanuck on October 9, 2009 at 1:21 pm

I was kinda surprised. I thought the Nobel committee would have waited at least a year to give Obama the time to make it to every country in the world to bash America.

So Odopey gets this award when he has only talked about peace, not for any accomplishment. It seems to me that every Miss America Beauty Pagent winner should also get the Nobel Peace Prize because these women always espouse world peace.

I would like to know why Ronald Reagan never received the Nobel Peace prize for taking down the Soviet threat to the world. But when I actually think about it, when you get the likes of Carter and Arafat winning the prize, I wouldn’t want Reagan associated with these lunatics.

The Nobel committee has now made the prize in a Cracker Jack box more valuable than the Nobel Peace prize. Way to go you dumbass northern European numbskulls.

Jarhead on October 9, 2009 at 1:25 pm

“I would like to know why Ronald Reagan never received the Nobel Peace prize for taking down the Soviet threat to the world. But when I actually think about it, when you get the likes of Carter and Arafat winning the prize, I wouldn’t want Reagan associated with these lunatics.”


Barry Popik on October 9, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Debbie says you can hatemail the Nobel lefties. That will work far better than any reasoned and intelligent comments that will be wasted upon them.

Just “moon” em!

NormanF on October 9, 2009 at 1:31 pm

The Norwegian soverign fund decided recently to refuse to invest in Israeli companies, although all other countries (including Iran) are A-O-K.

Oslo, like most Scandinavian cities, has become very unsafe. Read Bruce Bawer’s blog. I know a Swede living in the US, and he told me there’s no chance he’s going to go back to Sweden. It’s crawling with Muslim thugs and gangs, and is extremely dangerous. You can’t go out in any major city after dark.

He told me about a Bosnian (ie, Muslim) gang heist in Stockholm, where they used helicopters to attack a building where large amounts of cash were stored. They completely blocked off the streets, and when the police attempted to track them, they discovered that the police helicopters had been sabotaged. They rule the streets there.

adam on October 9, 2009 at 1:31 pm

Debbie, you’ve managed to convey my sentiments exactly. The Muslims have overrun the Scandinavian countries and now once a beautiful part of the world has sunk below the filth of the dark ages. Who knows the real reason why this affirmative action do nothing, accomplished nothing piece of garbage was awarded this prize, but I am not surprised.
He knows how to deliver speeches written by others as directed by his teleprompter-perhaps the award should have gone to them (the writers or the teleprompter itself) It would have made more sense.
I do wonder though how much money it cost the taxpayers of America for the bribes involved with winning this worthless award. I would not be surprised in the least if the trip to Copenhagen didn’t also involve some behind the scenes money exchange. There are no coincidences in the world and this award is granted just a mere week from the “Olympic” trip…puh-leeze.
Also, he was nominated only after spending 10, just 10 days in office!!!!!! So it’s not what he has “accomplished” in the nine months in office but in reality just those first 10 days when the nomination deadline was on Feb 1st.
If the Nobel committee could give a post humanist award I’m sure they would grant one to Hitler-for all I know they probably already have.

wolf2012 on October 9, 2009 at 1:55 pm

Adam, that’s right. The two most anti-Semitic countries in Europe today are Sweden and Norway. Come to think of it, they and Obama deserve each other – if misery loves company, they are the living embodiment of it!

NormanF on October 9, 2009 at 1:55 pm

According to Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution:

“No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”

Did Congress authorize Obamacant to receive the prize? Absent such consent, the acceptance of the prize and its monetary award is blatantly against the Supreme Law of the Land; i.e., it is unconstitutional.

and no one says a thing, maybe he will donate his prize money to Acorn, they are going to need it for their legal defense fund.

ender on October 9, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    Could you spare us the silliness? People outside of the regulars do look at this thread and site. President Obama in no way merited the prize, and the committee that awarded the prize was partisan and bizarre. However, the prize is not a title of nobility, but was set up by Alfred Nobel, who was an armaments manufacturer in 19th Century Sweden. Rather than providing quotes for the Daily Kos, you might want think about what you write.

    Sorrow01 on October 9, 2009 at 9:01 pm

I’m a conservative but I’m a Democrat. I voted for the guy. But I am shocked that such low standards are held by a committee that is supposed to have such HIGH standards. The Nobel Prize is officially a joke, albeit quite a lucrative one. How can someone win any kind of award based on no action coupled with mere words? I mean, what are we supposed to teach our children, for God’s sake!

puffofsmoke on October 9, 2009 at 2:21 pm

Will he be allowed to keep the $1.4 million for himself?
Federal law states that “…A gift from a foreign citizen or government worth less than $245 dollars is acceptable, gifts worth more belong to the United States government…”

The General on October 9, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    The General – good point. Will he also be able to keep his bling from the ragheads?

    Jarhead on October 9, 2009 at 2:46 pm

    I just heard on Fox News that the award money will be going to charity.

    Sorrow01 on October 9, 2009 at 2:46 pm

I agree with the above and am neither angered or surprised. I did a post on this earlier today. Yes the Nobel Appeasement Prize.

Obama was put on the list of those elgible for this now meaningless award 12 days into his administration (according to FOX this morning) and to date has accomplished nothing except to move our Republic on a fast track to destruction. He joins such notables as Carter, Yassar Arafat and Gore. This prize is nothing more than a joke and his winning should be treated as such. It is just one more thing for this character to grandstand on. Weakening our country in the eyes of our enemies does not further peace, but only emboldens them to take actions they may otherwise have avoided taking.

Bob A. on October 9, 2009 at 3:15 pm

It’s been said that half of life is just showing up. Obama seems to prove that notion, not for doing or accomplishing, but rather for showing up – and not being George Bush.

A comic years ago was said to have given up the business after Kissinger (with Le Duc Tho) was awarded the Peace Prize. Irony was dead, he said. Among the subsequent winners: one-time Nazi sympathizer Anwar Sadat; arch terrorist Yassir Arafat; nuclear enabler El Baradei; all around failure and Israel basher Jimmy Carter; global warming hypocrite Al Gore.

Face it. The Peace Prize is just a piece of Norwegian sanctification of their cause de jour.

Raymond in DC on October 9, 2009 at 3:17 pm

They should just rename it the Neville Chamberlain award and inscribed “Appeasement in our time” on it.

stevecanuck on October 9, 2009 at 3:22 pm

I should read the other comments more closely – I see Bob A. already covered most of that.

stevecanuck on October 9, 2009 at 3:23 pm


Norman Blitzer on October 9, 2009 at 3:24 pm

The Nobel Peace Prize is the Anti-American prize. They chose the correct winner, a sitting U.S. President who is extremely anti-American. Obama embraces our enemies and insults our allies. Obama is doing everything in his power to undermine the principles upon which this nation was founded and has operated for over 200 years.

Bonzer Wolf on October 9, 2009 at 3:25 pm

The biggest irony here is that the two parties most responsible for guaranteeing major conflicts in this world are our Appeaser in Chief and the Euro-dhimmis who are celebrating this award.

No one since Neville Chamberlain has done more to encourage conflict than Obama and the Euro-dhimmis have in enabling the global Jihad.

I_AM_ME on October 9, 2009 at 4:40 pm

The eurotrash have seen his ratings slip (because he’s such a huge pile of dung) so they jump on the bandwagon of Obama nutswingers (like Norman Blitzer) and give him this now worthless and meaningless award to give his ratings a little boost to maybe try and pass universal health care.

Radical Right Winger on October 9, 2009 at 5:03 pm

I’m a little surprised at how quickly he got it, but in a way it makes sense.

While I agree with your posts on the subject, I have an additional thought. While Obama’s presidency is not floundering, it is on uncertain ground. Health care has lost some support, and could potentially fall apart. Afghanistan shows his lack of leadership, and has the potential to further damage his presidency.

While I realize that the Nobel is decided in advance, I have to figure that one of the intentions of the committee was to bolster his presidency. While the committee may not have anticipated the recent reverses and weakening of his regime, they quite likely felt that his presidency could benefit from the boost that they hoped the prize would give him.

Little Al on October 9, 2009 at 5:30 pm

Of course he deserves the Peace Prize. You throw yours arms up, wave a white flag and say it was all your country’s fault. Doesn’t peace usually follow surrender?

theShadow on October 9, 2009 at 5:42 pm

I’m not surprised. Like the rest of the world, they hate America because they are jealous.

I’d say this is their one last swipe at George Bush more than an award for Obama.

I care about as much of the Nobel as I do the MTV Awards.

Jeff W. on October 9, 2009 at 9:30 pm

The saddest part of this story is George W. Bush should get one. At least he achieved some things. One, he removed a dictator and his sadistic sons from power. Two, he gave Africa billions of dollars to fight AIDS and Malaria. Yet the guy gets no credit.

That is a humanitarian. Not a guy who basically treads on his ego and the orld liking him for doing absolutely NOTHING.

At least the Nobel committee gave a 70 year old Israeli woman the noble prize for chemistry which she shared with two Americans. Another jewish contribution to society, while I can’t name any Muslims who have one science prizes.

spaceship22 on October 9, 2009 at 11:17 pm

well, what we can expect from this organization but lousey choices? they are left wingers. everytime we now hear “nobel/peace” people, we should just ignore it.

lindapolver on October 10, 2009 at 8:46 am

What more can be said? Debbie hit it on the head, Obummer
is in good company with this nonsensical award, which is
only viewed by leftists as important. Our decline continues.

Daniel on October 10, 2009 at 11:37 am

Dear Ms. Schlussel: I figured it would be a waste of time to complain about Barack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize.I used the email address to suggest that Susan Howatch win the Nobel Prize for Literature. I hope you had a nice Hag.

Miranda Rose Smith on October 11, 2009 at 10:46 am

It is nice to see that a person can receive a Nobel Peace Prize merely for perceived intentions on the part the giver of the award.

Since the Nobel Prize is given for the very thought of good intentions, and even for the imagined or thought-up-out-of-thin-air-out-of-whole-cloth regardless of the who the recipient is or how malevolent they are (as in Yassar Arafat), I also deserve a Nobel Peace Prize, for I have entertained good intentions, humane thoughts and ideas, charitable actions, etc., since I was born.

So, I am now awaiting my own Nobel Peace Prize which I deserve because of all my good intentions over the years.

William on October 11, 2009 at 2:51 pm

On behalf of all the women and girls that must live with the abuse of Islam-sanctioned and institutionalized violence and sexual abuse, can I please get a bucket? Where in his Cairo speech did BO even try to speak up for these millions upon millions of marginalized fellow human beings? No, they don’t have nukes or oil or money or other riches but they do carry the burden of this ignorant world. If the Nobel committee had any guts they would have awarded the prize to them in stead.
BO’s speech and this prize are the free West’s sickening appeasement of the world of Islam at the cost of the freedom of these women and children. Can I get another bucket?

bob23bob on October 12, 2009 at 12:13 am


Being called “Trailer Trash” is normally not a great thing but after this mess, being called “Euro-Trash”, well now them’s fighting words.


What a bunch of idiots. Most likely the Middle East will be in flames within 1.5 years due to Barack Insane Obama’s lack of skills and total idiocy.

Way to go, Oslo…talk about Euro-Trash.

Lebo on October 12, 2009 at 6:51 am

It’s simple. Obama Hussein is a Muslim and therefore shows respect only towards Muslims countries and terror groups and despots and dictators and get his favors while all allies trying to defeat terrorism Obama ignores. A muslim prez sticks up for Muslims everywhere, even the terrorists. Obama is also a Socialist and is turning the US intoa socialist country by taking over literally everything and putting it under his control. By being a socialist, Obama’s first line of duty at home is to squash the 1st and 2nd amendments, you know, the ones he was sworn in to PROTECT? Then considering Obama is NOT even an American born citizen which is required by the constitution, he cannot prove he is which would be very simple and since obama cannot Prove he is an American born, He should be impeached. He had done more damage since Jan and his short months as prez than Bush did in 8 years! Remember how Obama PROMISED to get our troops out of Iraq and the unjust war Bush made. Well, He did it. What He didn’t everyone was that he was going to take them out of Iraq and stick them all in Afghanistan to die fighting the Taliban and Al Quaida, Surprise? He has divided the country racially and has brought the US to it’s knees we need china and other countries to keep us financially owned by them. Where’s the Job’s? Where is the birth certificate? Obama should get a nobel for doing nothing, which is what he has done, nothing. But he should get a nobel for being the best orator bullsh**er in the world. His propaganda is very similiar to Gobbel’s, tell them what they want to hear and tell them hard and long enough they will believe you. Come elections, vote OUT ALL incumbants and impeach Obama for impersonating an American. Remember, Obama is NOT a African American which he protrayed on the campaign trail. Obama Is however a arab muslim who has brought many of his powerful thugs into the white house and other powerful positions. Notice how the media is NOT allowed to use H. or Hussein when talking or printing about him? Notice how Obama is trying hard as hell to squash the supreme court from finding his REAL origin of birth. Obama should get the award for being the best LIAR in the US, maybe the world and yet he still has done nothing to deserve a Nobel prize. Just shows how dementia has set in on the Nobel counsel. Well america, you hated Bush so bad you would settle for anything and well, you got it, anything called Obama and remember this. The 1st step towards being a dictator is squashing the 2nd amendment and removing ALL guns from ALL americans which is his agenda along with Hillary, Pelosi and most demo/libs. Especially at a time when we need protection becasue the bugets are so bad we don’t have cops on the streets anymore to protect us even as little as they had been capable of, while the radical muslims and millions of illegals he is letting in the country, mostly criminals, drug runners, murderers and terrorists. We will all be defenseless and now with the passage of the “Hate” bill, Obama will make a department of Hate thought, (DOHT). Americans all over the country will by the millions and millions will now become criminals and will be hounded by the Obama “Thought Police.” A Nobel for Obama is a joke and I just listed a few. God help this country and I will probably be arrested for using the word GOD. Goodbye America.

Oliver Harding on October 12, 2009 at 11:03 am

Oliver I can assure you that if they silence our voices, they will hear the sound of rifles.
As for Europe, the natives are restless, and it is not going to take a whole lot of effort before the muzzys get what is coming to them, in spades.

Drakken on October 12, 2009 at 7:49 pm

I was surprised that they awarded Obama the peace prize this year. I was expecting he would get in in 2010. Usually the left is better in their timing. This bad timing was so blatant that it made prize much more of a partisan joke than it had been in the past.
