MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Commentary On President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize Win Hits Home!

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow

There was a great comment by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on the brouhaha of President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize win last week by conservatives in the United States.

All “gutless cowards” should watch and pay attention to this commentary! Maybe they’ll understand that the Nobel Peace Prize isn’t about what you do, but what you inspire to do!

Unfortunately, that ain’t happening any time soon! Too many idiots walking around!

    'Fraid you're wrong there pal. This award isn't for inspiring what might come down the pipe, but for having already accomplished many things.In his will Mr. Nobel stipulated that the prize be awarded to:"Anyone who during the preceding year […] shall HAVE DONE the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."Obama was quite right to agree with his critics when, while receiving this great award, he admitted that he's done next to nothing to earn it. For a man who opposed Mr. Bush's surge in Iraq and predicted it would fail, but who has now just authorized a surge of his own in Afghanistan, to stand before the world and receive the Peace Prize, all the while making excuses in his speech to cover the obvious incongruency, is the height of arrogance, dishonesty, and hypocrisy. He should have done the honorable thing and said, "Thanks, but no thanks. I haven't done anything worthy of this yet. Please give it to someone who has."

  2. I'm not sure if that's the right thing to do. But keep in mind, President Obama didn't campaign for the Peace Prize. It doesn't work that way. This award was more of a "FUCK YOU" to the Bush administration and it's destructive foreign policies over the last 8 years. As far as Afganistan, keep in mind it was President Bush who mis-managed that war and is why we're in the situation we're in today! As a "man of the cloth", you should pray for peace…just as Jesus taught!

    Thanks for responding. As a man of the cloth I do pray for peace, and would have been just as horrified if Mr. Bush had received this honorable prize. Neither one of these men deserves it. I think you may be right in that this award was a slap in Bush's face more than it was an honoring of Mr. Obama's achievements (which, sadly, is an abuse of its intent, which I referred to in my previous post by quoting the late Mr. Nobel). But your comment on the video suggested the Nobel Peace Prize is more about "what people aspire to do" than what they have already done. I was simply seeking to correct that. Blessings!
