YIKES! Nobel Prize Committee Admits Their REGRET About Obama

I think most of America was dumbstruck when Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize nine months into his administration. He had done absolutely nothing to deserve it when he received it and has done nothing to deserve it since. He was lauded “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” There’s not one example of that, in fact, quite the opposite. The only thing he did do at that point was not be George W. Bush. He went on to destroy the greatest nation on the planet. He bankrupted her, strangled her with regulations and taxation, and he circumvented the rule of law repeatedly. He deserves a prize for being a Marxist asshat.

Of course the awarding of the prize was politically motivated. Obama set a record as the only Nobel Peace Prize laureate to have bombed another, when US/NATO planes bombed a hospital operated by Doctors Without Borders in October of last year. He’s also aided Islamic terrorists, not defeated them. He participated in getting four Americans killed in Libya as well. He has absolutely armed up and nuclearized Iran, the largest terror state on the planet… so, about that peace prize – not so much.


From TheBlaze:

Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to President Barack Obama in 2009 was an experiment to encourage the newly elected Democrat to follow through on his lofty promises, according to at least one former member of the Nobel committee. But apparently, that was a failed experiment.

A regretful Geir Lundestad, onetime secretary of the Nobel committee, told the Associated Press that he hoped the award would strengthen Obama. But it didn’t, according to the group, despite the White House’s belief that the president “lived up to the standard that he has set for himself” regarding the prize.

Instead of being an encouraging sign, the award was met with palpable indignation, particularly among conservatives who believed Obama should have done something rather than spoken something to receive the lofty prize.

“No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama,” Lundestad, who is working on his memoir, reportedly wrote in the forthcoming book. “Even many of Obama’s supporters believed that the prize was a mistake. In that sense, the committee didn’t achieve what it had hoped for.”

Those who awarded Obama the Nobel Peace Prize bitterly regret it now. I could of told them that would be the outcome here. Lundestad, who served as the group’s influential but non-voting secretary from 1990 to 2015, broke with long-held tradition in coming forward with his disappointments surrounding the committee’s controversial decision to grant the award to the president. They awarded it to Obama to encourage him to carry through on his lofty promises. The experiment failed miserably. The committee royally screwed up, but in their game, there are no take-backs unfortunately.
