Obama Accepts Nobel Peace Prize (Gothamist) – This is why choosing Obama just weeks after he was elected president was idiotic. Just last week, he announced that he has authorized an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan and today he gets the Nobel “Peace” Prize. Doesn’t make sense.

Got Something to Add?
The Noble Peace Prize has often been a joke whether it's terrorist Arafat getting it in 1994, the useless UN in 2001, Carter in 2002 or now a guy barely in office and prosecuting two wars at once now escalating one of them. It's a political statement, nothing less and, unfortunately, nothing more.
I agree, Carrie didn't bash anyone. That's really reaching for drama by popeater. fail.
Obama said he was going to revisit the Afghanistan situation when he was running for president. He didn't start a whole new war. It's a no win situation for him no matter what he does.
If I consider past receivers of the peace prize (Jimmy Carter, for example), then you realize how unimpressive the peace prize truly is, imo. Obama will ruin our country if he isn't kicked out of office soon. His unaccountable spending and narcissism of unemployed Americans, along with his administration's abuse of our Constitution shouldn't be forgotten. Someone should be checking into those fake districts and fake numbers of jobs generated and posted on government worksite. Someone should be going to jail soon hopefully.
What Carrie said wasn't bashing. If she had said Simon is stupid, that would have been bashing. I don't think he is the smartest person I've ever met, either. That's just the truth.
