Washington Post op-ed columnist, Eugene Robinson begins his latest column with this:
"Somebody explain this to me: The president of the United States wins the Nobel Peace Prize and Rush Limbaugh joins with the Taliban in bitterly denouncing the award? Glenn Beck has a conniption fit and demands that the president not accept what may be the world's most prestigious honor?"
Of course, it's highly unlikely that Mr. Robinson will read this blog, but I will attempt to explain. Very simply, President Obama has done nothing to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. Let me repeat that.... President Obama has done nothing to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
How difficult is that to understand, Mr. Robinson?
Robinson goes on to say that it is only some conservatives who have "taken leave of their political senses". He gives John McCain as an example of a conservative "familiar with the concept of manners". News Flash.........McCain is no conservative - not in this or any other universe Robinson may visit from time to time.
Robinson goes on to say that "If Obama ended world hunger...." we conservatives would "....accuse him of promoting obesity". Let me go on record as saying that if Obama ends world hunger, I would be the first to congratulate him. We all know, of course, that no human being.....not even Barack Hussein Obama.... can end hunger in this world. Sorry, but having good intentions doesn't count.
"If he solved global warming, they'd complain it was getting chilly." I guess Obama has already accomplished that. The BBC asks - What happened to global warming?
There's more from Robinson. "If he got Mahmoud Abbas and Binyamin Netanyahu to join him around the campfire in a chorus of 'Kumbaya,' the rejectionists would claim that his singing was out of tune".
Obama has gone out of his way to alienate Netanyahu and Israel. It may not be impossible for Obama to get them " around the campfire", so to speak, but we can be certain there will be no singing of Kumbaya ... off key or otherwise.
Sorry, Mr. Robinson; Obama's winning the Nobel Peace Prize is nothing less than an embarrassing joke.
