The Day We Bombed the Moon & Barack Obama Won the Nobel Peace Prize

There are days that tempt with a dirty blue cheese olive martini before happy hour and today is one of them.  Today, we bombed the moon and today, Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize – hang on while I shake the martinis…

Two years ago, I sat in stunned disbelief as Al Gore and his inconvenient Truths were awarded (see migrated post here) and this morning not only was I stunned but I felt a bit angry too.  There were approximately 205 nominees being considered.  One of the groups was the Chinese dissidents who protested in Tiananmen Square (this month is the 20th Anniversary), you know, those people who died for what they believed in and stood up to the crushing confines of Communism.

Other nominees were: Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, a philosophy professor in Jordan who advocates interfaith dialogue in a region shot through with sectarian violence, and Afghan human rights activist Sima Samar. She currently leads the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and serves as the U.N. special envoy to Darfur.  Or how about Denis Mukwege, a doctor and founder of the Panzi hospital in DRC, which helps hundreds of thousands of women victims of sexual violence.

These people are making a difference in the world and positively impacting lives daily.  and Obama?  Well, he liberally spreads Hopium without action to back it up and he can read from a teleprompter.  Perhaps his speech writer should have won the prize.  Good speeches – no action equals a Nobel Peace Prize but apparently, the Nobel Committee is all about Obama making fuzzy-wuzzy with the Terrorists of the world and throwing the American people and American policy under the bus.

RNC Chairman Michael Steele summed it up: “One thing is certain – President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.”

Even Libs were a bit taken aback: Richard Kim at the Nation rattled off a list of deeds liberals are still waiting for Mr. Obama to accomplish before they deem him worthy of the prize: “Fully closing Gitmo and restoring civil liberties and compliance with the Geneva Conventions; negotiating with Iran in good faith; withdrawing from Iraq and, of course, withdrawal from Afghanistan. Escalation, or even maintaining the status quo there, would alone discredit this award in history’s eyes.”

Ironically, Obama has proven nothing more in nine months except that his most successful policies have been the ones that he has carried over from the Bush administration.  Again, other than reading off a teleprompter and glowing like the Messiah he thinks he is and ass kissing the enemies of the USA, I wonder what anyone thinks that he has DONE?

Apparently, HAMAS and the Taliban are wondering the same thing:

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by telephone: “The Nobel prize for peace? Obama should have won the ‘Nobel prize for escalating violence and killing civilians.”  Add to that the deadliest four months in eight years of war and inaction that is costing more American lives daily and I can actually agree with the Taliban.

Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas prime minister in the Gaza Strip, said, “Unless real and deep-rooted change is made in American policy towards recognising the rights of the Palestinian people I would think such a prize would be useless.”  Of course, HAMAS does fully support the frosty ties of the USA and Israel that have iced over since Obama ascended to the throne.

By awarding the Peace Prize to Barack Obama, the Nobel Committee misses the point of those who are working for true Peace and Humanitarian efforts daily.  It is a disgrace to add Obama’s name to the list of such influential heroes and heroines like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Theresa, the Dalai Lama, Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev and so many others.  It is a slap in the face to the actions of Peace that are being performed daily.

From a Senior Leader in Pakistan: “It’s a joke. How embarrassing for those who awarded it to him because he’s done nothing for peace. What change has he brought in Iraq, the Middle East or Afghanistan?”  I could not agree more.

If Obama was truly humbled, he would have declined the award, asked for it to go to someone who deserves it and gone off to bake Bo’s birthday cake.

In other news, we bombed the hell out of the moon today and we are expecting cheese rain by this evening.

Another martini, anyone?

    The moon – that nocturnal inspiration to poets and lovers for centuries – was viciously attacked yesterday morning at 7:31 EST by Muslim terrorist Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his co-conspirators within THE GOVERNMENT.

    A clear message has been sent by this radical jihadist to good and decent people everywhere. There is no room for misinterpretation: if they can target the moon – THE MOON! – in such a ghastly and unprovoked matter, it proves – conclusively – that Main Street is not safe. All of us are vulnerable to their insidious wickedness and villainy. Our children must be protected from the radical, hideous agenda of this man and his vile administration. Mark my words, my fellow Americans – today the moon, tomorrow Anytown, USA. OH, THE HUMANITY!

    Where will it all end? What sinister plans does he have in store for Christendom? Don’t say you weren’t warned, America! Don’t you dare say you weren’t given ample notice of this Kenyan-born extremist’s evil intentions for us. I can see it now: Death Panels! Communist Medicine! An abortion clinic in every public school! Generations of innocent American schoolchildren forced to memorize entire paragraphs of the autobiography of Malcolm X! I have seen the future, my friends. It is bleak. Very very bleak.

    But seriously folks….
