President Obama Wins 2009 Nobel Peace Prize

(CNN) — President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, a stunning decision that comes just eight months into his presidency.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee said it honored Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

The decision appeared to catch most observers by surprise.

The president had not been mentioned as among front-runners for the prize, and the roomful of reporters gasped when Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel committee, uttered Obama’s name.

Nominations for the prize had to be postmarked by February 1 — only 12 days after Obama took office. The committee sent out its solicitation for nominations last September — two months before Obama was elected president.

The president, who was awakened to be told he had won, said he was humbled to be selected, according to an administration official.

Obama will make a statement Friday at 10:30 a.m. ET from the Rose Garden, administration officials said.

The Nobel committee recognized Obama’s efforts to solve complex global problems including working toward a world free of nuclear weapons.

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said.

Jagland said the decision was “unanimous” and came with ease.

He rejected the notion that Obama had been recognized prematurely for his efforts and said the committee wanted to promote the president just it had Mikhail Gorbachev in 1990 in his efforts to open up the Soviet Union.   FULL STORY AT CNN

A Coup D’etat

I am normally a person who has an affinity to want to write eloquently when blogging.  But in this case, FUCK THAT.

There is a group of congressmen & women trying to stage A Coup who are opposing President Obamas’ appointment of 30 Czars.  These Czars are the oversight to several key industries, such as banking, oil, securities exchange, etc…  These pundits feel the authority he (Obama) has given those Czars is a too far reaching authority.

They also feel that none of these people were “properly” vetted or quailified.  Uh, can we slap the GOP and remind them of their major flub in failing to vet former VP candidate Sarah Palin?

President Obama has only done what every other President before him has done.  The only difference is that he has a larger number of appointees to these “Czar” positions than past presidents.

These cowards know there’s no law on how many Czars there can be.  So what do they do?  They lie by misleading the public;  Accusing the President of not only relying on these czars for information when making decisions, but actually “allowing” them to make decisions.  A function above their true authority.  Fucking liars.

These congressmen and people like them go around taking the Presidents message, distorting it for their own agenda and getting people who just can’t stomach a Black President to follow them.

They further ingratiate their lies by stealing President Obamas’ goal of transparent government & using that same word to define their wreckless, insubordinate and hateful tactics to ultimately pass it off to gullible people who believe this crap.

I have never seen this much public opposition, disrespect and hate towards any President in history.  President Obama has not started a war, he’s trying to end one.  He didn’t screw up the economy, he trying to fix it.  He didn’t become head of state to become an opponent of the house, they automatically started fighting with him.

President Obama has the same agenda as past presidents.  The ONLY difference is he has a better and more effective way to do things.  Its called “Common Sense”.  He has done NOTHING different than past presidents.

Now, I want you ask yourselves this.  Knowing that he wants a better America that operates properly and without the “underhandedness” that past administrations have employed, what’s the problem?

Former President Jimmy Carter said it best when responding to his assessment of Obamas’ administration and the blatant disrespect of the office of the President.  This disrespect was most notably visible by the outburst of Congressman Joe Wilson – S.C. when he yelled out ” You lie!” While the President spoke on healthcare on the house floor.

When asked his opinion, he said “I think its based in racism.  There are many in this country who have an inherent feeling that an African American should not be President”

What it sounds like to me is that NOW these government leaders really ARE about to have a transparent government and they don’t like it.
