Badge of Bullcrap: Nobel Committee on the Defensive Re Obama

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s rare that the Nobel Committee goes out of its way to defend itself for a controversial awardee.  But, now, the Nobel committee members who bestowed a Nobel Peace Prize on Barack Hussein Obama are on the defensive.  Three of them doth protest too much.  And two won’t even respond to questions. Contrast their behavior with that of the late, great Kaare Kristiansen, who resigned from the Nobel peace prize committee over the committee’s insane award to terrorist-in-chief Yasser Arafat.


Members of the Norwegian committee that gave President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize adamantly defended their choice against a storm of criticism that the award was premature.

“We simply disagree that he has done nothing,” committee Chairman Thorbjoern Jagland said Tuesday. “He got the prize for what he has done.”

Jagland singled out Obama’s efforts to heal the divide between the West and the Muslim world and scale down a Bush-era proposal for an anti-missile shield in Europe. “All these things have contributed to – I wouldn’t say a safer world – but a world with less tension,” Jagland said by phone from the French city of Strasbourg.

Ah, yes, let’s award an American President for both kowtowing to America’s enemies AND dismantling America’s defense.

Asked to comment on the uproar after Friday’s announcement, four members of the five-seat committee said they had expected the decision to generate both surprise and criticism.

Three of them rejected the notion that Obama hadn’t accomplished anything to deserve the award, and the fourth declined to answer that question. A fifth member didn’t answer calls seeking comment.

Frankly, I’m more impressed by recipients of Cracker Jack prizes, and by those who dole them out (the factory workers operating the machines that package ’em).

The other Nobel awardees are chosen by Swedish institutions.  But the Nobel Peace Prize is given out by a five-member committee elected by Norway’s parliament.  The five members unanimously chose BHO for the award based on nothing but hype and a gushing, lying speech to the Muslim world.  Oh, and as I’ve noted before, recent Nobel Committee members were caught taking bribes from the Chi-Coms.

When they have to defend themselves, they know it wasn’t a deserving award. They make their own stupidity look ridiculous.

Either they are lying about why he was given the prize, or they violated their own rules. The deadline for nominations was February 1st, and Obama had only been in office since January 20th.

If they gave it to him for what he has done since February 1st, they violated their own rules. If not then they are lying about why they gave him the award.

For those wondering: This is taken from another website, but it does clear up alot of things about this worthless prize to the Muslim in Chief.

Yoram Ettinger says that according to Alfred Nobel’s will and in contrast with other Nobel Prize committees the members of the Nobel Prize for Peace committee are not experts, but politicians, members of the Norwegian Parliament.

The chairman of the committee, socialist Thorbjorn Jagland, former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Norway, is the Vice President and the Chairman of the Middle East Committee of the “Socialist International,” known for its opposition to US and Israeli policies. He is, also, the Chairman of the “Oslo Center for Peace and Human Rights,” which advocates a Dovish-Leftist worldview, in cooperation with Jimmy Carter, who is close to Obama and considered a role-model for the new Nobel laureate.

Along with other members of the Committee, Jagland represents a Parliament that has called to recognize Hamas, to dialogue with Iran, to tolerate rogue regimes, to enhance ties with Muslim regimes, to condemn (what he terms) Islamophobia and to condemn systematically the policies of Washington (until Obama’s victory) and Jerusalem.

Awarding Obama the Nobel Peace Prize in spite of the fact that the deadline for nominations was February 1, 10 days into Obama’s Administration constitutes a transparent attempt by European politicians to bolster Obama’s determination in the global arena and improve his standing in the domestic arena. While Obama’s stock has risen internationally, it has deteriorated internally, in light of his lack of success in the areas of unemployment, taxes, budget deficit, health insurance reform, Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Russia and al-Qaeda.

Jagland and his colleagues are determined to provide Obama with a tailwind. They consider him the most UN-driven American president since Woodrow Wilson, who established the League of Nations in 1920. They encourage him to sustain his efforts to endear the UN to the American people and legislators and to highlight the UN as the key formulator of international relations. They identify with and are eager to advance Obama’s worldview, as they assess it: that the superpower role of the US is over, that moral equivalence and not moral superiority dominates relations between the US and non-Western democracies, and that the West must reconcile itself to the rise of the Muslim World.

This perceived worldview also holds that the US must desist from unilateral political and military initiatives, that America should advance multilateral initiatives which reflect values and attitudes shared by the majority of the UN membership, that there is no military option against Iran, that the battle against Islamic terrorism must be conducted diplomatically, economically and legally and not militarily, that there should not be a surge in Afghanistan, that retreat from Iraq should be accelerated, that the Palestinian issue is the core cause of Middle East turbulence and anti-Western Islamic terrorism, etc.

Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama does not reflect respect by the Nobel Prize Committee toward the American presidency. It does not intend to express appreciation of the American legacy and American human and mega-billion monetary sacrifice, which spared Europe defeat during World War I and World War II, produced victory over Communism and minimized Islamic terrorism in Europe.

The Nobel Peace Prize Committee aimed to improve Obama’s image among Americans and leverage his presidency in order to Europeanize US policy, thus accomplishing the “wet dream” of US critics, rivals and enemies.

KING HUSSEIN COBRAMA should just have his head put on the Nobel Peace Prize. On the front his face should be embossed and on the back it should have the Islam moon crescent and star.

Debbie, I can see it now Montel Williams will be back on late nite selling his new and improved edition of his 50 cent pieces selling for $20 with the Nobel Peace Prize affixed with glue on the back. And forget about going into the inner city and not seeing the T-Shirts with Obama, MLK and Ghandi and the Nobel Peace Prize. Remember, well maybe not, the Obama Condoms… last elections that popped up, pardon the pun…

Yasser, Jimmuh and Barrack…yep thats one hell of a committee over there!

I believe that the Nobel Committee has done permanent damage to itself with this award. Even if one liked President Obama, the award was premature and unearned. The Nobel Peace Prize has become an honor without honor.

I’ve heard rumor that instead if a million dollars, Obama will be given a toaster instead.

Sam Adams on October 15, 2009 at 2:57 pm

For BO hussein, an iPod with the acceptance speeches of the previous winners might be appropriate 🙂
So, you can win the Nobel Pece prize just by publicly kissing raghead butt…who knew?
