We taked about Obama winning it on here when he won.  I think we concluded it was based on what he was going to do, not what he had done.  Looking back, has he earned it?

Apparently he got the prize for being the first black president of the USA. That he did, but was done at the time.

Or he got it for his potential to bring together the parties or unifying the country or something. That sure hasn't been done.

Either way, both reasons are BS and he had no right to that prize. A lot of others also have no right to it that have received it in the past too.

Anthony, sorry, I don't think you were around when we were talking about it.  Seems all of the Obama followers have disappeared.  Seems we totally agree on this one.  Wish you had been there in 2008, I was the voice in a wilderness when questioning Obama winning it.

I thought I did but might not. Agree it was a sham though.

See, we can agree sometimes. :)

AR, like I used to tell Graphixer.  We agree on 99% of the stuff, it's the 1% where your wrong.
