Barack Obama not Just Offending Americans … Now The One Snubs Norwegians with Canceled Nobel Peace Prize Appearances
Obama offending some one other than Americans this time …
What Norwegians are upset with Barack Obama because he has snubbed them, treated them like they don’t exist and has blown off his Nobel Peace Prize appearance? Join the crowd folks and welcome to the snub party. One would think that people might be a bit more upset of the undeserving nature that Obama received the award, rather than him not showing up for the events.
Barack Obama’s trip to Oslo to pick up his Nobel peace award is in danger of being overshadowed by a row over the cancellation of a series of events normally attended by the prizewinner.
Norwegians are incensed over what they view as his shabby response to the prize by cutting short his visit.
The White House has cancelled many of the events peace prize laureates traditionally submit to, including a dinner with the Norwegian Nobel committee, a press conference, a television interview, appearances at a children’s event promoting peace and a music concert, as well as a visit to an exhibition in his honour at the Nobel peace centre.
He has also turned down a lunch invitation from the King of Norway.
Now Norway knows what it feels like to get some Barack Obama “Hope & Change”. Once the Nobel Peace Prize committee acted as useful idiots and awarded the prize to Obama, someone who should never have been given the award as he has done nothing to deserve it, he ignores them and is on to the next ego stroking event. Only 19% of Americans, according to a CNN poll think that Obama is deserving of the award.
The 19 percent who believe Obama deserves the award is down 13 points from a CNN poll conducted in October, soon after the award was announced.
“That number dropped 21 among Democrats and 10 points among independents, possibly due in part to Obama’s recent decision to send 30,000 more U.S. combat troops to the war in Afghanistan,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
The real question is not whether Obama will have lunch with the King Harald, it is whether The Chosen One will bow or not?
