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.
Diversity = too many white people.
Have we just reached the point where racism against whites is acceptable?
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”.

If we are to take Mr. Reid at his word – then why did the CBO bother to cost out the bill proposal?
The CBO estimate will turn into ‘cover’ for the members of Congress that vote yes on this monstrosity. They will vote yes and then tell us that they would have never voted for the bill if they had known……………….oh well, too late now.
Message to Congress – at least 80% of Americans have demanded that you read the bills before you sign them. We will not allow you to use this as an excuse. If you vote on a bill without knowing the details/impact to your constituents – we will vote you out.
Do the Feds realize that State’s have a right to protect themselves?
