This is Obama being humble. He wanted to ensure that anyone that had not heard that won the Nobel Peace Prize would hear it straight from him………………
A Call To Action????
Just seemed appropriate on Obama’s special day ;o)
The stunning choice made Obama the third sitting U.S. president to win the Nobel Peace Prize and shocked Nobel observers because Obama took office less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline. Obama’s name had been mentioned in speculation before the award but many Nobel watchers believed it was too early to award the president.
Rather than recognizing concrete achievement, the 2009 prize appeared intended to support initiatives that have yet to bear fruit: reducing the world stock of nuclear arms, easing American conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthening the U.S. role in combating climate change.
So this is a pre-emptive award?
Even MSNBC thinks this is a joke. Once again – it’s Bush’s fault.
I continue to be amazed at how differently politicians speak when they don’t think they’re being recorded.
They’re trying to scare you.
You remember Robert Reich don’t you? He’s the Obama advisor that didn’t want recovery jobs to go to “white male construction workers”.
According to Kevin Jennings, if we disagree with his agenda we are racists and;
“When you show me you care, I’ll be willing to talk to you – until then – why don’t you turn the day of silence into a year of silence for yourselves.”
Sign of the times – if we disagree – we don’t care – or count.
Thanks to Hot Air – you can calculate it – and should.
Barack Obama and his Democratic colleagues on Capitol Hill have tried to sell ObamaCare as a way to make health insurance more affordable for all Americans, but does it deliver? The AP sounded skeptical on Sunday, when they analyzed the various proposals, noting a number of ways in which costs will escalate for consumers outside of Congressional sales pitches. The article also links a handy tool from the Kaiser Family Foundation, generally supportive of health-care reform, that allows consumers to get an idea of what ObamaCare will cost them individually and as families.
The Kaiser tool also helps quantify the subsidies. At an annual income of $33,000, for instance, a family of four would get over $10,000 in tax refundables to help pay for their health insurance, only contributing less than $1500 out of their own pocket. The total tax liability for a family earning $33K per year falls far below $10,000, which means they will not only pay no income taxes but will take away from the general fund. At $44K, twice the poverty level, the family would pay $3,070 for their insurance and get $8,445 in subsidies, which would likely also far outstrip their tax liability. We will pay each family earning $66,000 over $3600 a year in subsidies despite the fact that they make far above the median American income.
Try out the Kaiser web site and see for yourself.
I did – this free insurance is going to cost me more than 250% more than what I am currently paying…………………
Since I make less than $250,000 a year and this fee is considered an excise tax – Obama – YOU LIE!!!
Robert Gibbs – is this what you meant about “matching the truth to what’s being said”? You really should be concerned about what has been said by Kevin Jennings – not what’s being reported by Fox News.
Kevin Jennings has got to go…………..
“One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hays” a man that openly supported NAMBLA – fully open child molesters.
This really should not surprise us considering Obama’s record on sexual predators.
