I talk a good game on this blog, so does that make me eligible for a Nobel Peace Prize?
So the President has just been declared the winner of the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE.
I have mixed feelings about this. There are many questions that need to be asked and answered before I cosign on this. Although I know it does not matter what the hell I think, I wasn't on the voting committee.
I believe that there were other more deserving people who should have been considered.
President Obama has only been a President for 9 months. He has not done anything that benefits the world stage, except expose the hypocrisy and bigotry here in the country that elected him. He has TALKED a good game about what he WANTS to do, but he has not had TIME to DO anything yet.
So what was the CRITERIA for giving him this award?
Did they like his SPEECHES on bringing Christians and Muslims together?
Did they like him going to damn near every country in Europe apologizing for the Bushies fuck ups?
Did they like how he is TALKING about helping people in this country with health care?
Or what about him TALKING about ending the wars that were started by his predecessor, but has yet to do?
I am very proud of our President, but.....
I don't understand this.
Wouldn't it have made better sense for the voting committee to wait until he actually accomplished something on the World Stage before they just by passed more deserving candidates?
What was the reasoning behind this?
I don't know who the other nominees were, I am going to have to research it, but I don't agree with this.
This prize was given prematurely.
I always thought that recipients of this prestigious award had to have given a lifetime in helping the world be a better place.
How the hell does electing a Black President in a White Dominated country fit into that?
The man still needs to make good on all the speeches he has given. I admit that he inspires the hell out of me, and probably damn near every other Black Man in this country. I was at the Dallas VA the other day checking on my education benefits, and I passed by a picture of the President and I swear I must have stood there in awe looking at that picture for at least 5 minutes. I mean to just see a picture of a man who looks like he could be my Uncle, up in a United States Federal Building, just made my heart swell with pride.
He has not done anything to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
Inspiring people to kiss the sky should not be enough.
He needs to accomplish something that benefits all people in the world before his name should have even been whispered.
I am Sorry Mr. President, I ain't hating, but this shit here is not right.
But this is just my opinion. An opinion that only matters to me.
