61% of Americans Believe Obama Did not Deserve Nobel Peace Prize … How About the Heisman?
Mandate … 61% of Americans believe that President Barack Obama did not deserve to win the Nobel Peace Prize. 34% of those poll said Obama dreamed of doing something deserving at some point in his life, while 6% had no opinion and were watching reruns of The Bachelor.
It was predictable how Republicans would side in this matter; however, look at Independents. By a 66% to 27% margin, middle of the roaders said Obama in no way deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. More interesting was that only 59% of Democrats said that Obama deserved the award. Hmm.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee’s Oct. 9 announcement that President Obama had received the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize caught the world by surprise. One Associated Press report on the day of the announcement was headlined, “Gasps as Obama Awarded Peace Prize.” Those startled by the announcement apparently included Obama himself, who said he was “surprised and deeply humbled” by the award.
They say Americans are can-do people. But “can” and “do” are not one and the same.
Americans seem to understandably believe that he has not “done” it, at least not yet. That he can, sure. But Americans believe, sometimes desperately, in meritocracy. And most Americans don’t believe the president merits this honor.
How many believe that Obama should win the Heisman? How about the MVP of the Baseball World Series? The libs at the Nobel Peace Prize org did Obama no favors in further pointing out to the American people that Barack is provided favoritism for doing nothing.

What exactly did he do to win?
Is wrecking the economy of the U.S. worthy of a Nobel Prize. Well of course, didn’t they also award Jimmy Carter (wrecker of the economy, and the national humanoid-as Rush calls him) the Noble Prize?
No, I’ve got it. To win you have to bad mouth and trash your country and make apologies for our behavior.
He deserves a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, Or was it better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick ??? Well you get the point.
What this poll tells me is that 61% of Americans still believe that one should actually accomplish something before being given an award. Has the Heisman trophy ever been awarded to a freshman after he only played a couple of games?
Does anyone know how to spell hemorrhoid?
What a pain in the butt.
[...] at the conference be considered important? Instead, he is off to Oslo, Norway to get his undeserved Nobel Peace [...]
i’m glad he’s not going to copenhagen, he’ll sign anything if they say they like him. if you read the stories about the second place winners in both obama’s and gore’s cases, i think you’ll decide, as i did, that gore and obama would have been thought better of if they declined the awards and insisted that the second place winners receive the prizes.
Dont forget the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, Tony, MTV VMA etc…….
wonder how much blow (as he described it) he inhaled in Denmark ?
