My Big "HUH?" Of The Week

This is my Big "huh?" of the week....

President Barrack Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009
"for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples"

Are they serious? Really? He was in office only 12 days when the deadline for submissions was up. This has got to be a mistake..... Yes, the man can talk.... yes he is very charismatic - but he has NOT done anything yet.... He is trying to push through a health care plan that does NOT make sense. He has been caught in many non-truths... He is spending money faster than former President George Bush and every president before him.. He has made a mockery on what our country was founded on - Our Belief in God..... He has gone out of his way to shoot down our military... He has gone out of his way to apologize to the Muslim countries for our belief in Jesus Christ...

The decision of the 5 person committee to award President Barack Obama the Nobel Peace Prize was based on his potential... Was based on the fact that Obama persuades Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to shake hands during a trilateral meeting in New York... I make my kids shake hands after a fight sometimes and five (5) minutes later they are back at it....

This award even surprised one of the president's top aides - his comment to the media when told was "It's not April 1st, is it?" seriously...

The Taliban mocked the award - calling President Obama not a peaceful man but a man of violence.. Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said it was absurd to give a peace award to a man who had just sent 21,000 extra troops to Afghanistan to escalate a war... A senior leader in Pakistan called the award "an embarrassing joke"

"In less than a year in office, he has transformed the way we look at ourselves and the world we live in and rekindled hope for a world at peace with itself" Nobel director Geir Lundestand

Former Polish President Lech Walesa, a 1983 Nobel Peace laureate, declared: "So Soon? Too early. He has no contribution so far. He is still at an early stage. He is only beginning to act"

Why are so many people so eager to prove that President Obama is something special before he has really done anything? Do they think by awarding the award that he will meet the challenge? I personally have to guess that majority of the people in the world are dumbfounded - supporters and non-supporters.. This award has made a huge uproar - so much so - that the popular social network Twitter crashed shortly after the news - people were going nuts....

President Obama has not earned this award yet... I do hope that one day he will meet the challenge and do something worthy of it... but as for now - he doesn't even come close......

  1. It is really hard to comprehend why he was given this award.

  2. I was shocked by this one too. I don't get it!

  3. I didn't get this one either. After 12 days is way too early.

  4. Yeah, man, the debates that went on facebook about this were sure interesting to read!

    I will pray for your sister. I know it's scarey. A friend of ours had brain surgery and he came through it just fine. The skill of the doctor's nowadays and their knowledge is amazing. They can do so much!

  5. I find it a frightening insight into what our society is moving towards.

  6. Kelly,

    I have to admit that the spoof they did on SNL on Obama nailed the man to a T! He has done nothing worthy that people dedicating themselves to the saving of human lives or those willing to bring the human rights violations to the light were just shrugged off as if their lives didn't matter. Again, my only hope is in God not in this man to run our country.

    Let us keep on praying for him and hope that someday soon God will reveal his true character to everyone and even Obama himself.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  7. I think he might even have been surprised.

  8. I think a lot of people were surprised by this.

  9. Yes, I think he was surprised, as well. But, he did say that winning this award has been a call to action, so let's hope he does something to make him eventually deserve it in most people's eyes.

  10. Like many of you, I too hope that he eventually does do something to deserve this honor..

    Thanks for visiting and commenting - always love the interactions..


  11. I don't know what's more mind boggling. His receiving this award or folks expecting anything to make sense when they are going to great lengths to take God out of everything. Like that's going to happen. God is alive! He's not dead!

  12. When I heard about this 'peace' award, it brought to my mind the chilling words in the Bible, that the anti-Christ will come as a man of peace. May God help us!

    I do agree with Kat though, God is in control, and everything works together for good, even this. God will have the final say.

    Great post!

  13. Let's see...who do you think nominated him...OPRAH? LOL
