Obama and The Nobel Peace Adward!
I have been hearing a lot of the President and his accepting the Noble Peace Award in Norway. Some have cheered him on and some have let it be known he has achieved nothing in his short-career to be given the award. It comes down to what people around the world think and here at home. A few have said he is the "man of peace" this is why he was given this awarded for what he achieve so far! But could this hurt him in the long run? In three years time when he tries for another run in 2012? The White House has said they tried to "play down" this accepting of the award. I guess they didn't want to offended some people back home! Even the President has said there are far more better people in the world. Whom had done more then he has ever done in his career. They are far more accepting of this award then he'll ever be. I have to say... I like the guy honesty in what he had to say no matter what the outcome is. He seem to be able to let he true feels show regardless of what taken place. I have to wonder what he thinks of all this did he feel guilty about being called the "Man of Peace," when has just sent more troops to the middle east? It's hard to please everyone in the U.S. let alone the world! My personal opinion of all this is it a great honor to be awarded for great achievement that person has made so far. I think it was too early to be given this type of award to someone who only been in office for a short-time. These kinds of awards should be given to people who have achieve much more then a President who just "learning the ropes" in his new job. I think the committee got it wrong in some respect maybe they were trying to boost their own image? Because the President is a very popular guy at the moment. But as we all know the popularity doesn't long for very long!!! Especially here in American government.
