President Barack Obama surprisingly wins the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Prize

October 9, 2009

(ChattahBox) — President Barack Obama has surprisingly won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize less than nine months into his first term.  The Norwegian Nobel Committee praised Obama for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”  It seems though the five-member Noble Committee was trying to make a political statement, rewarding Obama for as they say giving the world “hope for a better future and striving for nuclear disarmament”. But while Obama has struck a more conciliatory tone with the world and mended fences with out allies, he still faces some daunting issues, on the future of the war in Afghanistan, on the stalled Middle East peace process, and resolving Iran and North Korea’s disputed nuclear programs.  Obama is the third U.S. president to be awarded the prize while in office, following Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 and Woodrow Wilson in 1919. Former President Jimmy Carter won in 2002.

Or wasn’t he the reason Gas went sky high, also he’s the reason we lost our jobs and our houses are in foreclosure since Obama came in office I was able to afford school, and make something out of my self you people that talk all this nonsense about one’s accomplishments are simply selfish ignorant morons who have nothing better to do but throw your tea partys and juice up prejudice if he had been a White man you would be happy and cheering but because he is black you are talking shit and spreading nothing but hate if you even dare claim to be a christian I cast your sorry asses to hell.
